Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The new partnership here has taken Colosseo to another level. If you are a fish lover the Lemon sole special tonight was exceptional.Beautifully presented,full of flavour and exceptional value. If you haven’t tried Colosseo then you should soon.

My partner & I have dined at Colosseo on several occasions, mainly for lunch over the weekend and whilst I have reviewed this outstanding Italian restaurant before, I just felt compelled to write another post, especially on the back of the lunch we had on...Sunday, which was just amazing. Everything about this venue oozes quality and the atmosphere is very warm, friendly and welcoming to the tunes of classical piano jazz playing in the background. Unusually for an Italian restaurant, but equally as tasty and enjoyable are their range of roast dinners, only served on Sundays, but the value for money is insane at just under £16 for a lamb dish, complete with the trimmings and a rich red wine gravy, which was just divine. My partner had a goats cheese starter, which I picked off a few mouthfuls from, followed by a mushroom risotto, which not only smelt amazing, but she assured me it was absolutely on point with taste too. The restaurant is owned by two chefs, namely Mimmo Pipitone and Salvatore Barlotta, who between them are highly accredited and experienced culinary experts and it shows throughout their creative menu. I can't encourage anyone reading this post, to pay them a visit, as trust me, you will not be disappointed. We were well looked after, so our thanks to all the staff, who made us feel valued, welcome and relaxed. Thoroughly enjoyable experience, which we'll be back again soon to savour again.More

We’ve lived in Fairford 9 years and realised on visiting Colosseo that we’d made a mistake by not visiting before… fantastic food, a relaxed atmosphere and the best service. Absolutely nothing to fault and everyone with us aged 6-69 enjoyed their meal. A really lovely...place and we can’t wait to come back.More

After reading the reviews our expectations were high. Unfortunately after the starters we were disappointed in the lasagna and garlic bread they both had a sweet taste to them. This spoilt our enjoyment and we left a substantial amount. This may be due to the...recipe the restaurant use but it was not to our taste. Such a shameMore
