Conveniently located close to the Jackson Street, that identifies the traditional downtown in this small and safe city, Colletti's is an option for those conoisseurs who look for more than pizza and gelato. I could appreciate the great effort from management to offer Italian dishes with limited availability of ingredients.

Had dinner here with a group of friends and was delighted by the whole experience. The restaurant decor is romantic and really beautiful. We parked at the side of this huge building downtown. It's obviously a well-kept building. The entrance, on 1st. Street, could be in any European local with it's beautiful cast-iron railings, flaming streetlamps, heavy linen canopies, and... More

Our night at Colettis started bad and ended bad. Service so bad at inception that we considered paying for our first round of drinks and leaving, but we gave them the benefit of the doubt. Bad choice!! No bus service. Incompetent wait staff. Bad attitude. We can deal with mediocre food with good customer service but mediocre food with such... More

We went to celebrate our anniversary while we were in town. Excellent food. I had the spaghetti with sausage. The salad was crisp and chilled. The wait staff was attentive without hovering. The restaurant is in an historic building. It's very nicely redone with a great atmosphere. We will definitely eat there again when we return in October

Colletti's is the only family owned Italian restaurant in Harlingen and is located in the historic The Reese, downtown. On the menu, you will find generous portions, bold flavors and reasonable prices. Our lunches are served Monday to Friday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. In addition to our full lunch menu, we have daily specials which constantly bring new flavors and exciting dishes to you and your guests. The pizzas from our brick oven have quickly become the buzz about town with their thin Naples crust and endless possibilities featuring different sauce and topping options.The food will be home-style and not pretentious. Whenever possible local suppliers will be used and area farms will grow custom produce to our exacting standards. The philosophy of the chefs' cooking style for Colletti's is to use the freshest, most wholesome ingredients to prepare food that is tasty, authentic and simply prepared.
