What Our Customers Say

Service and atmosphere Here was Amazing
We held my sisters baby shower here, and as always the food, servers and atmosphere here was amazing. They were very accommodating and I would always recommend Il Colosseo if asked where to go for dinner in Athlone. You can never have enough of the food here although you will be stuffed the food tastes like 'more'.

They're the Most Child Friendly Restaurant
First time yesterday and we really enjoyed our dinner whats more they're the most child friendly resto with an immaculately clean high chair and a toy to settle our 6mon old baby. Definitely would come back one of this days.

Hygiene is second to none

Here in Il Colesso right now. Hygiene and care after a busy evening is second to none. Watching the chef clear the kitchen getting ready for another day. Highly recommend

Highly Recommend
We visited Athlone and decided to book an Italian meal. We phone at 6.35pm and secured a table for 7. When we arrived the place was bustling with people. the servers could not do enough for us. The meal was absolutely gorgeous. One of the best meals I've ever had. The price was such good value for money, especially for the large portion sizes. Highly recommended and will be back if we visit Athlone again. Thank you to all the wonderful staff.
