Food was good and filling.Unlike most other Athlone restaurants, sitting place was better organized .Ample space to sit . Menu has few different and decent options. Tomato taste was stronger in couple of our dishes.One can check while ordering. Ample car park space near by. Service was good.

Had a lovely Itlanian meal. Staff very pleasant asked if we could try both house white wines to see which we preferred no problem. Pizzas were delicious as was the wine. The tomato pasta had loads of fresh cherry tomatoes in it with chunks of chicken and the surprise of the dish was the dough crust on top so thin... More

A group of old friends brought me to this restaurant. The food was lovely, the staff were great. The prices were very reasonable and no one left hungry, as the the portions were big.

We had a party of six and could not have had a better experience. We had appetizers and six different meals and everyone was terrific. The servers were fabulous and attentive to every detail.

Went as part of a large group, food was very nice. The service was a bit slow, but that was to be expected with such a large party.

I can scarcely believe how cheap the food is in this place for such wonderful, delicious Italian food. The place was packed the (midweek) evening we visited and I'm not surprised. But even it was full, it was still very comfortable. The food was as good as I've had in an Italian, and excellent value, plus great beer on tap!

We got a present of a gift card from friends of ours and paid a visit. I was never a big fan of Italian food but Il Colosseo soon changed that. The experience from starter to desert was nothing short of perfection. Our starters consisted of Prawn in olive oil and calamari. They were just to die for. Mains were... More

We were over in Athlone for the weekend & went as a group ( six) for Sunday evening meal.......the staff & food were first class. My only gripe is my husband wouldn't share his garlic mushroom starter with me & I made the HUGH mistake of not ordering them, won't happen next time .
