Some of the food was great some were not good. The service was ridiculous as we had to wait 10 mins until I asked a waiter to help. One appraiser came out wrong with the clams and shrimp. Pasta fagioli soup was tasteless.

Food was really good, we had the Octopus which was very soft. For main's I had Sword fish which was very moist really enjoyed it. My husband had chicken Franchaise also really good. Nice size portions.
The negative was it was really, really noisy and it was only half full. I couldn't hear my husband speak. Would only go back on a week night instead of a Sat.

The entrees were delicious, especially the Fioretti meal. However, the appetizer we ordered (Misto Mare), was definitely a letdown. The shrimp was very overcooked and for the $18, it came with 2 clams, 2 shrimps and 2 pieces of octopus, so it felt small. The Tiramisu was wonderful, however the cheesecake was TERRIBLE. It was the worse cheesecake I have ever had. It was overcooked, the top of the cheesecake was overcooked and the cake itself had no flavor. The size of the cheesecake was so small compared to the large size of the Tiramisu. The cheesecake was $12. Overall, a little disappointed in the appetizer and dessert but the entrees were delicious.

Food was very good, service was excellent. The place was crowded and was somewhat loud which was good and bad. Made things livelier but also harder to hear each other at our table.

I have been there 4-5 times and it has always been very good.
Last night the burrata was sour and the noise was unbelievable! Couldn’t even have a conversation with the people at my table.

Everything I ate was dead on. We started with grilled octopus, very tender and tasty. Then we spilt an order of spaghetti puttanesca, excellent. Finish with a pork chop.

This place is a hidden gem that I hate telling everyone about because then I won’t be able to get a reservation. My server Pablo was incredible. So attentive, charming, and funny. The food, as usual, was amazing. Artichokes were perfectly fried, swordfish portion was insane, and the desserts I can’t even discuss. This is my absolute favorite place anywhere in Monmouth county.

Very nice place with friendly staff and amazing food! The place is too loud to really hold a conversation and the only downside to the place. Maybe adding in some room dividers or padding on the ceiling would help with this.

The food was exceptional, really delicious. But the volume is over the top loud. I don't think it's intentional, but it was difficult to hear anyone at my table without leaning in or shouting. But honestly, the best Penne Vodka I've ever had!

We asked to be moved to a table in a corner to avoid the noise level. We are frequent diners at Il Colosseo and would like to continue to be. We were never moved and there were 3 other tables open. No matter how crowded we should have been moved. We could not talk to our guests. We have brought over 10 other diners to the restaurant so far and really enjoy the food. Hopefully we can continue.

Food was fantastic. The server and staff did a fine job. It is extremely loud on the weekend which was a negative. Fortunately, I can enjoy their great food during the week and also for lunch. Avoid the weekend loudness.

The food was amazing and the waiter was exceptional. He allowed us wait time in between courses which allowed us to enjoy our company . The noise level was extremely loud which made it nearly impossible to hear one another. I wish the acoustics could be improved. All of the staff was very friendly and inviting.
