We have been going to Coletta's for many years now. At one time many years ago they were on Summer Ave. before it burned to the ground. We were so happy when they opened the restaurant on Appling Way. Our family loves their meat ravioli and have for years. They also sell if frozen. We have taken it to our... More

went for lunch and got the spaghetti special, it was anything but. The rolls were not fresh just reheated the lettuce had seen better days and the 1 sport pepper and the 2 tiny slices of tomato didn't help. The sauce tasted a more like something you would get out of a jar rather something made fresh and it was... More

We were craving Italian food and I'm glad we stopped my for lunch. I ordered the eggplant Parmesan which came with a side salad and drink for $10.99. The eggplant was so fresh and tender I could easily cut it with a fork and it was served over pasta with plenty of sauce. I prefer lots of sauce. The creamy... More

Our first visit and we may well be hard to please. More of a family restaurant than a romantic, charming place for a couple to eat and spend time together. Decor was mixed, with the table cloths being vinyal and the overhead can lights being too bright tor the evening. Our waitress was prompt and attentive. The service from the... More

I was here with a large group after a wedding rehearsal. The drinks took forever to come, the food was sub par, and there wasn't enough wait staff allotted to the group. 2 persons for almost 40 ppl the ones we did have were very polite, however. I won't come here unless someone else wants me to, and even then,... More

We have been going to this Colleta's for many years, and still the food is great. I grew up going to the original Colleta's, which was where I first even heard of BBQ Pizza in the first place. It sounded strange, but it "just works" - and tastes even better! The service is great too - hey, they put up... More

We stop in Memphis often and when we do, we always look forward to eating here. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere is cozy and the service is outstanding. Great family restaurant feel and have never had a dish we didn't love. The prices are fantastic with what you get. Make sure you arrive hungry.

Old school Italian joint right off the interstate. One of the oldest restaurants in Memphis. Good pizzas....you can not go wrong with bbq pizza or the Around The World. I like to dine in the bar area. Full bar with good draft. Good salad with homemade dressing. Real casual place. Check it out. There are 2 locations in the Memphis... More

If it was good enough I knew it would be good enough for me -and it was amazing. We always stop in on our trips to Graceland. Mr. Coletta is so nice and accommodating.
