    This was a great experience all around. Our server, D’Andre, was perfect! He was attentive and fun, always very correct - women first, etc. He kept us up to date on our food, managed drink orders very well. When the pizza oven was running behind, he let us know so we could re-work our orders. There were so many things to try on the menu that trying something other than pizza worked out well! I knew from viewing their website that there were great looking entrees! We met the manager, Joe, when he came around to check on us. Then again when he came running outside after I left my purse on my chair. I clearly was more concerned about out leftovers! 😂 And a shout out to the bartender who uses simple syrup for the old fashions! We will be back!

    The pizza sauce was bitter. Steak was barely warm not hot at all. Most food was at room temperature for everyone at table. We thought it must have all been setting out waiting for one thing to be finished. We threw away 80% of the food and took steak home to our dog. We won’t go back. It wasn’t busy or crowded. There was no reason for cold food. This was made worse because it was my wife’s birthday dinner. I say go once. Order something small and judge for yourself

    Over-priced lasagna , but good, not worth 34$ Room was very loud , the waitress was very nice . The Burrata was bland . Over all too expensive, but fits the Cary crowd that lives there. Per gli italiani che vorrebbe mangiare li, seconde me , non vale la pena, la burrata manco sapeva di latte( creo l’abbiano fatta in casa , è il latte che hanno usato boh non sapeva di vero latte ) , il tiramisù aveva due savoiardi , il limoncello non era manco freddo , Per coloro che non conosco la cucina italiana è buonissimo o meglio, come mio marito, ma io non mi sono impressionata , beh la lasagna era buona ma non per quel prezzo .

    Colletta was great! I went with a couple girlfriends but honestly it would’ve been an even better date night spot. It was a little loud (the music was like whoa when it came to a few songs) but the ambience was perfect. Our server Haley was great and personable with answers for everything. The food does take a while to come out but it is explained by your server before you even order that it’s because everything is made to order which I will never be mad at. The pastas were all delicious, I had the Tagliatelle which was everything and the burrata was a 10/10 antipasti. I am already planning my next visit back and have told several others all about it!

    We had Jake as our server and he was great. Very attentive, energetic and informative. We enjoyed our dining experience at Colletta. Our one negative was the focaccia bread. It was soooo bland. It didn’t have any flavor at all, which was disappointing. Other than that, drinks, main dishes and desserts were great.

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 4 days agoThank you for your review. Glad you enjoyed! We love Jake. I will review with the Culinary Team about the focaccia so they can make any required adjustments. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

    Absolutely amazing!! They were ready for us right at our reservation time and accommodated my request for seating. The atmosphere was great, our waitress was perfect, and the food was spectacular! I had really high expectations after reading the other reviews and somehow they exceeded them. I highly recommend the Lasagna Bolognese!

    Our server was great, knowledgeable and attentive. The burrata and wild fired shrimp were good. The burrata was a bit awkward to eat but the flavors were very good. Lasagna was not as good as it should have been. Very expensive to not wow me and my husband did not eat but maybe half of his pasta dish. The chocolate molten cake was very good, but we really did not go there for a good dessert. For a $34 square of lasagna, it should have a side salad and bread for the table also. The chairs are also not comfortable. They slide around on the floor too easily. Carpeting would be helpful to warm up the restaurant and cut down on noise. We had wine which was fine.

    I wish my wife would order more than just the ravioli so we can experience more of the menu. Pretty much my only complaint. This place is great and everything is delicious. We always have the focaccia and Italian salad to start, both are plentiful and decadent. Only issue I had was that our wine took a while to come out and the fact you have to order everything at once. Since we have come before the latter wasn’t an issue however.

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 4 days agoThank you for you 5 STAR Review!!! We will work on faster delivery of the wine for next time!

    We had been to Colletta previously, and had an excellent meal, so I chose it to celebrate my wife's birthday. A terrible mistake!. Drinks were good. I had the Caesar salad, which was good - my wife had the same, with a different dressing. They came out 10 minutes apart. She had the polpetta appetiser as her entree, and it was ok. I had the chicken parmesan, and it was as bad as I have ever had. The chicken was way overcooked, dry, tough, and undersalted. Waiter brought some extra sauce, which didn't help much. The spaghetti on the plate had minimal sauce, was overcooked, and stuck together. I talked to manager, who did comp our food. I commented that when you exclude the three large "for the table" entrees, menu is limited. No clear way to order the veal chop or steak without getting a portion too large for one. He said, "We're mostly a pizza and pasta place". This from a place that was supposed to have a renowned chef! Guess quality control was not part of his training. I do not think either Macaroni Grill or Pizza Hut have much to worry about. We will go elsewhere for Italian food.

    I wanted to love this. But the food was honestly not good at all. The chicken was chewy and burnt. The noodles had no flavor except for a slight soapy taste. And the price was exorbitant. Hopefully it was just a fluke but I would not recommend unfortunately.

    There are mixed reviews of this place, either you love it or you dont. My friends and I loved this place. The vibe and ambiance were great. I think this spot will be great for date nights or special occasions. Definitely pricey, but quality makes up for it. My group had the focaccia, burrata, bucatini, lasagna, tagliatelle, and chicken parm with GF pasta. We loved everything from the appetizer to the main dishes! The burrata is pricey for what it was for, but it was so fresh and light enough to still have space for mains. Everything was seasoned well with flavors that came together well without being too salty or overly seasoned. The desserts we got were the salted caramel gelato, the semifreddo alaska, and the tiramisu. The gelato was flavored well and so creamy! The alaska was sooo good (fave dessert so far), and the tiramisu was good, but was more creamy than expected. It was missing that deep coffee flavor, i recommend soaking the lady fingers a little longer in the coffee. But we will definitely be back, I’ve already made another reservation!

    The restaurant was busy and noisy, but not overwhelmingly so. The waiter was very knowledgeable and attentive. However, it took a long time for the food to come, and when it did, it was lukewarm. The ravioli was very tasty, but again, lukewarm. The lasagna was a bit disappointing. I think the restaurant has potential to be very good but needs some work.

    Chicken parm (x 2) was dry, just the faintest amount of sauce on the spaghetti, and very expensive at $28. Calamari was oily, but sauces were very good. Italian and Caesar salads were good. Polpette was good. The agnolotti was very bland, with grainy ricotta. It wasn’t at all appealing to the person who ordered it, and it mostly went uneaten.

    Almost everything we ate was out of this world! Tried the Foccacia, meatballs, Lasagna, Agnolotti, Gelato & Spumoni. I thought the meatballs were a little bland, but everything else was top notch delicious. Our server was lovely, and the restaurant felt cozy. I’m glad we were able to get a reservation (albeit many days in advance!) and will definitely return.

    The food was really bad. The only thing good was the bread. It took 2 months to get a reservation and what a waste. In addition I ordered a drink on the rocks and they charged me $16.00 for the drink and added an ice charge of $1.50. Charging for ice!? I would never go back there - don’t waste your time. This was not good Italian food

    Kitchen staff blasting their music that you can hear in the dining room, lasagna supposed to be their « signature » dish but totally flavorless. Just disappointing.
