They have a happy hour and dinner specials. We enjoyed a glass of wine and had the steak and shrimp special which was perfect after a busy day. If you have energy left you can stay for good live music and a nightcap.

I took my mother there for her birthday and to see some jazz, which she loves. I t turned into possibly the worst evening out for as long as i can remember. The waitress was rude, forgot most of our order. The other staff barely came to pour water/check in on us. All our food was awful. Unseasoned, un-coated calamari... More

We went to celebrate a birthday and sat outdoors with our party of 10. Heating elements kept our area warm in the brisk February evening. The old-style restaurant is small, so, reservations are necessary. My niece chose Colombo's for their jazz music, but, we didn't get to experience that outdoors. Service was good and we were checked upon often. The... More

The Monday Night Workout guys thought we would go to a different restaurant than our usual places for dinner. The occasion was that the first of us hit that magic year in age of 65 years old. Off to Colombo's for our table of 9. We arrived and went along to the back room, and met up there with Vic,... More

This place is a hoot! You can't help yourself watching what is going on around you. We were there on a Friday night when there is live Jazz music, the singles are mingling at the bar and there are birthdays and lovebirds having dinner. We were seated in one of the comfy red leather booths. Perfect perch to people watch.... More

This is a neighborhood establishment, a friendly place and good live music nightly. The atmosphere is old school, red booths and low lighting. The Italian food is good and hearty and most other food is good, it's hit or miss. There is a bar on one side and the cocktails are pretty stiff, so be careful. You can take your... More

If you want a stiff drink, good Italian food and music, this is the place to be. Each drink they pour is a double and the trio that was playing were really good. There was a cast of characters at the restaurant so people watching was as good or even better than the food!

Mr. Grumpy aside (yeah, you, Mr. Elevator Eyes), this nice throwback to traditional soft light, red-leather booth family Italian is certainly worth the price of admission. The lively bar on the side of the dining room adds pop and fizz to the atmosphere. Tasty and traditional Italian dishes just like your that special Italian joint you remember in Little Italy.

How many times have I eaten here? I’d say about 50 times! It is our go to place for celebrations or just to treat ourselves. We love the food and the live music. Columbo’s feels like a place that would be located in New York. It has a very special feel to it and we love it! Our favor foods... More

Five of us made reservations in advance and were seated promptly. Service was attentive. Food good. Most of us had pasta. There is a piano entertainer, so be aware of that If you want to have quiet conversation, ask for a booth away from the piano.
