    Usually patient but the 3 people I sat at dinner with should not be done with dinner and I am yet to get mine. They took it off the bill and funny how they think that solves it. It does not. Not that hard to time 4 plates.

    We went to Colletta with family visiting from NYC. They’re hard to please when it comes to good food as they’re spoiled in NY. They gave the food and service A+++. Shamil provided the best service! You would never know it was his first night at work there. The food was full of various flavors. The pizzas are my most favorite, the calamari was excellent, main course was delicious. The portions were decent. 4 stars because they didn’t have the Tiramisu that I so loved last time. All in all, 5 star experience!

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 1 day agoThank you for your kind review! I will let Shemil know!! Glad you enjoyed. We will have the Tiramisu next time! Thank you, Joe Bee

    Our food and wine were amazing. We loved the Ribeye the best. It was delicious and cooked perfectly. The lasagna was good, and the charcuterie board was delicious!! We loved it all. Our waiter, Jake, was extremely attentive and kind. He made sure our glasses were never empty and that our food came out to perfection. He even laughed at my Husband’s dad jokes… which is altogether impressive. This was our first experience at this restaurant and we will definitely be coming again.

    Unfortunately, Colletta did not meet our expectations. In fact, we think it is very much overrated. First, the restaurant is very noisy...and you need to know that if you are looking for a date night. Our server was fine, not outstanding. She didn't come by often. Our appetizer came in a reasonable amount of time. HOWEVER, you know you're in trouble when not one but two managers come by and touch your table and thank you for patience. Our dinner arrived approximately 45-50 minutes later. Hubby's chicken parm was lukewarm and flavorless. My Bucatini - when they say spicy they mean it. VERY spicy. Overall it was an 'okay' experience. Restaurant while one big room and a bit loud, it's beautiful with all the windows. Maybe we will try again 6-9 months down the road. There are so many amazing restaurants in Raleigh no need to go again anytime soon.

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 1 day agoHi Cruisegal, I am sorry our timing was off. We appreciate you all and it is not our goal. We have discussed the spiciness of the dish as well and have brought it down to a medium heat which is what was intended for that one. Thank you for letting us know. If I can do anything for you, please reach out. Thank you, Joe Bee 912-508-8721

    I’m 71 yo and have eaten at many Italian restaurants across the country including NYC, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Atlanta, Chicago, and San Francisco but the 15 layer lasagna at Colletta’s was the best that I have ever had!! I finished eating 2 hours ago and I still am thinking about it. The service was fantastic and the atmosphere just short of cozy. My wife and I can’t wait to return and try more of the chef’s pasta dishes. This is a 5 star restaurant.

    Colletta is definitely a new restaurant. Many of the reviews here are right on and things have not changed since they made them. Drinks are definitely on the small side and it took a very long time for the drinks to get to the table. The waitress told us that pizza would take longer than the entrees to come out so we ordered them first and pasta second. Pizza came out right away and Pasta came out 15 minutes later. The pizza is good. We tried the soppressata and the summer fig. Both very tasty and prices for those are reasonable. Pizza is not better than you can get at Tazza. Rest of the menu seemed very over priced. Place definitely has potential but needs to raise the bar to charge the prices they are charging.

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 7 days agoHi Jim, Thank you for your honest review. I am sorry if there was some confusion about the timing of your meal and the long wait for drinks. We are new and learning but I assure you we are reading all reviews and taking steps to ensure a high level of dining experience every time. If I can be of any assistance in the future please let me know. Thank you, Joe Bee 912-508-8721

    We were celebrating our anniversary and Colletta was perfect! We had complimentary champagne and our server Jake, was great with recommendations. We had the Caesar salad and Polpette for starters—definitely some of the best meatballs we’ve had! For entrees we had the Radiatori and Tagliatelle, with 2 cocktails (As Far Back and Concrete Shoes) and all were excellent. Had the salted caramel gelato to wrap up and overall a great experience. Will definitely be back!

    The service was great! The menu was diverse with good portions. The cocktails were tasty. No bread or parmesan offered at any point. One of he waitresses fell because the floor was slippery. The restaurant is nicely appointed, but it would be great if they would put a half swinging door on the open kitchen so you can't see the big stainless steel sink, would be more aesthetically pleasing.

    The focaccia was incredible and I wanted more. The caesar salad was quite good as well. The chicken parm was soooo good. The only "issue" we had was with the drink I ordered. I ordered the Black Manhattan, which the menu says is made with "Kentucky Bourbon". Since there isn't a brand called "Kentucky Bourbon, I asked which one and she seemed a little confused but then told me the brands they had. The drink is listed for $15. So imagine my surprise when the bill came and it was $38. WTH! I was charged the price of the drink plus the price of a shot of Angel's Envy bourbon. I was not pleased. The staff took care of the issue though. Thankfully, I'll go back but I will ask the staff to inquire about the brand of bourbon used next time

    There was a dead fly in the French press coffee. My mother spit out the fly after she took a drink of the coffee. The waitress was very apologetic. The manager apologized but didn’t comp our meal until the waitress pushed him for it. We were offered a free dessert which we declined. Cleanliness is so important in a restaurant. I hope they pay more attention to cleanliness. They’ve only been open for about two months so it’s disappointing that cleanliness is not a priority. The appetizer/pasta dishes we had were great but you can help but think of there was something in those dishes too or how clean they were.

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 7 days agoHi Olive, I am so sorry this happened to you. I am sorry I did not give a good enough impression that I truly cared about your experience. It was my 100% intention to make sure you left as happy as possible.

    Excited to try this new place , but alas ….. very let down ! While the manager there is extremely helpful and kind , the rest is a big disappointment .Our server was quite slow on taking our order , and we had to remind her to bring our drinks finally , after about 10 minutes . 2 of our dishes were disappointing … a ravioli dish was very bland and uninteresting … and quite overpriced for a VERY small portion . My shrimp dish had only 4 shrimp , and although was called “ lemon “ had no flavor whatsoever . I had to ask for some lemon wedges . It would have been passable with thin pasta , but instead came with fat spaghetti . An Italian restaurant with no soup on the menu ?? The bread ( foccacia ) while tasty , usually comes gratis to the table at most Italian restaurants . This small serving of 3 pieces is $6. Unimpressed for all the hype . There are MUCH better really fine Italian restaurants in the area , for sure !

    Colletta - Cary, NCResponded 7 days agoHi Suzannek, We were so glad to have you this night and we appreciate your review letting us know. Sorry that 2 of the dishes missed the mark for you and your family. We have discussed with the team on the best way to describe these dishes in the future as lemon is not supposed to be the dominate flavor. If there is anything else I can do for you please let me know. Best, Joe Bee General Manager 912-508-8721

    The restaurant is lovely inside and our waitress was friendly and attentive. Food was pretty good. However, this place is nothing more than your average mall restaurant. It is really nothing special. There is no attention to detail. As others have noted, it is very loud inside. When I arrived and approached the hostess stand there were three staff people standing there. Not one of them greeted me for serval moments. This is the second restaurant at Fenton that we have tried and neither one have impressed.

    Waited for weeks to get a reservation so expectations were high. Food overall is good but not exceptional. Portions are small and expensive, especially the charcuterie &cheese board is not worth the $24. They can’t time pizza orders with entree order so be prepared to eat not eat all together. Ambience and service are great but price/value low so hence we will not be coming back.

    I enjoyed a nice girls night out at Colletta. The service was great and limoncello cocktail was delicious! It was a bit warm inside the restaurant but I liked the ambiance - beware, it’s LOUD. The burrata was great, my bucatini entree pretty good but not outstanding for the price (the shrimp were slightly overcooked) and the vanilla bean “gelato” was delicious, even if it was much closer to the consistency of ice cream, definitely not gelato.

    First time visiting. Tables were well spaced out, restaurant was clean, and music was audible but not loud. Service was friendly and attentive. A number of staff were helping to serve and pre-buss. Timing was on-point, and the table was never cluttered. Drinks were fine but not particularly impressive; still good though. In terms of apps, I've had much better calamari, but the focaccia was at the top of my list. Food tasted fresh, and portion sizes were fairly large, especially the pasta; I came home with enough for another full meal.

    It was rather loud so hard to hear my companions, that is my biggest complaint. Will wait until can sit outside to come back. Lovely space. Food was really good. Love the Fenton area - can't wait for it to be fully finished. Cocktail before dinner was rather expensive but delicious. Portion of lasagna was huge (leftfovers for dinner tonight!). All the staff (from bartender to hostesses to waitstaff to manager) were very responsive, non-intrusive, and delightful. Would recommend.
