Welcomed by friendly staff and spent a wonderful night at this lovely restaurant. The food was great and had the best steak in many years. We were not rushed vacate the table like so many places I have been to. I would recommend a visit.

Delicious food, delicious wine, delicious atmosphere! Thanks Liz and Franco. Been coming here for special occasions for a long time now and always enjoy the experience. Whenever family come down we have to come here, turned into a family tradition.

The Colosseum has a reputation for good food with fantastic service and it did not disappoint! Everyone was friendly yet not overbearing. Lizzie really is the perfect hostess! Food and wine was delicious. The evening was accompanied by some authentic Italian guitar which added an extra something to the evening. A really lovely restaurant!

I am judging this against other Italian restaurants not the others in teignmouth as haven't visited them. Upon arrival we were given a table near a window which was good as the restaurant was extremely hot. I fancied a cinnamon & lemonade, after 15 minutes I was told they didn't have any & no alternative was offered. We ordered starters... More

We have been regular customers at the Colosseum for many years and had booked for Valentines day, something we had done before so we knew what to expect! We were wrong! When we arrived we were pointed towards a table which was decorated to its normal high standard and then given a piece of paper and told another one would... More

It frustrates me that I have to write a response to your review, as I have already personally explained and apologized to you via email. Your wife and you are aware that Franco ( owner/chef) was seriously ill in hospital and we had to make slight changes to the restaurant, you are also aware that we informed most of our... More

We liked the warm welcome from Lizzie the proprietor and were seated with lots of attention and made feel at home at once. The starters were well put together and Lizzie came around to check all is ok. The main courses again were nicely presented and we were happy with the quality of the food. Only minor thing was that... More
