Wife and I stopped in and had an anniversary dinner. The place was busy and it seemed it might be better to make a reservation but the very nice hostess and the manager/owner I think? Was very cooperative any got us a table. A male server who wasn't ours got us started. What a guy! Our waitress Jacinta was polite and on her game. It made it a lovely smooth evening for us. Our entrées were made up of homemade pasta and seafood which was done perfectly. The dessert was rich and just enough sweetness. The whole night was perfect. Will be back for sure.

Came for dinner on a Tuesday night and it was more crowded than I thought it would be, and for good reason. Everything was delightful, from the table to the food.

My wife and I took a long weekend to Erie PA and decided on our second night we wanted some genuine Italian cuisine, so after checking several reviews on local restaurants we made reservations at Colao's , and what an excellent experience we had , located in a quiet neighborhood when you first arrive you think you are walking into someone's house , it's not a large place but they have a lot of seating, we were seat by a very polite young man and then immediately greeted by a very pleasant waitress who took our drink orders, my wife ordered a margarita and I ordered a double jack on the rocks, hey it's a Sinatra thing , my wife ordered bruschetta and I asked for the fried calamari, she enjoyed the bruschetta and let me tell you the calamari was unbelievable, I have had more calamari than the average person and without a second thought it was truly the best I've ever had, ( found out the owner was the one that made it ), my wife had the spaghetti and meatballs, I ordered the veal Milanese , she loved the sauce and meatballs , it was too much for her to finish, my veal was so tender I had no need for a knife, the first time I had that veal dish and it was a great dinner, I honestly tell you if in the area and in the mood for a romantic or even a nice family night this is the place to go , and as a side note the bartenders know how to pour a drink and they are not watered down

Food is very good, lots of great choices. Some new menu items on this visit. Chef owner very friendly, stopped by our table to say hello and ask about our meal. Always very clean and comfortable, a top choice!

I give this place 2 stars only because the waitress was so good. Our appetizer was served frozen. It was corrected but really? Frozen? Our house made Gorgonzola was basically Italian dressing with some tiny specks of Gorgonzola . It had no flavor. Only one of the 5 dinners our party had was worthy of being served. The frutte de Mari was reported to be very good. All other meals should not have been served. I love the locally owned restaurants of my home town. I don't live here anymore so we were really looking forward to finally trying this place. Such a disappointment.

Wife and I went here for our anniversary dinner. Our server (Abbi) and the food were both amazing! Parking was a little annoying since it’s a residential neighborhood, but 100% worth it.

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant! From the ambience, to the staff, the food and wine: everything was incredible! Our hostess Julia & server Jacinta were amazingly helpful & professional (great suggestions & perfect timing, especially for a busy night). We ordered the bruschetta & calimari (fantastic), mushroom ravioli & braised short rib dinners--oh my god, Heaven in a bowl! The risotto it came with was created and

Great selection! Tried a couple of the specialty drinks to start...ordered a couple of appetizers and wasn't able to finish my main course. Made for great lunch the next day! Can't wait to return.

The food is really great. The portions are pretty large too. I always have to take my pasta carbonara home with me. The staff is very nice.
