We left it late to find a table for a Saturday night only booking on Thursday evening, because of this we were only able to take an early table at 6 or a late one at 9. We chose to take the 6 slot. Despite the early time the atmosphere in the coloseum was lovely and vibrant, it is a small restaurant with an intimate atmosphere. We had a lovely welcome from the owner and there were ample waiters/ waitresses all of whom were polite and friendly. The menu had a great range of pasta dishes, meat, fish and vegetarian options and shortly after being seated the owner went through all the specials with us. The food was fantastic, we had deep fried mozzarella on tomato and bruschetta to start, my fiance had a pizza which looked fantastic and I had tagliatelle with shellfish for our mains. The shellfish were obviously fresh and local, the mussels were the best I've ever had. We had a bottle of house red which even at the cheapest price on the menu tasted great and finished off by sharing a chocolate souffle which was light and gooey in the middle. Overall the experience was on the pricey side but 100% worth it for amazing food and great dining experience. Would definitely recommend this place to anybody.
