Reviewed 22 October 2013

The pizza is good and the garlic knots are great. Staff is friendly. I have been there twice and both times the pizza was piping hot and tasty!

Reviewed 17 September 2013

After 16 months of spam and feesh on Maui, I was also starved for a NY City Pie. You know, the kind with that perfectly thin crust and the ideal amount of velvety Lava oil you anxiously await to drip down and scald your chin. Ouch! yes we all do it anyway. I was very relieved to find that Tony and Dino were still offering this Italian staple (if you will) to us ex New Yorker's. It's located right there behind all the Bart construction on Capitol Ave in Milpitas Ca. Still easy to get in and out and the only place between here and Little Italy in downtown SF. to quench one's thirst for a true Pizza Pie! The Stella on tap is always cold and they don't discriminate against Red Sox Fans. (much). If your looking for fancy and prefer cloth to paper napkins, try Carrabba's.

“worst Pizza ever had”
Reviewed 18 August 2013

I selected this place because it was close to our Hotel and had great ratings on yelp. I posted a bad review on Yelp only to have the business owner remove it. So when you look at Yelp remember if the review is not good they can remove it. The Pizza place was located 2.5 miles away and it took 70 minutes for delivery and they forgot the salad. Instead of going to get a said they called and we had to request our money back which was refunded. But not even an apology or a coupon, nada! Now for the pizza if you like a pizza that is very chewy and tasteless then this is the place to go. Of yea it was only 45.00 dollars wasted.

“8 Stars anyone?”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

If there were 8 stars, I would give Colosseum 8 stars! This place is simply awesome and unbeatable when it comes to Vegetarian or Margherita pizza in the Bay Area! This is a NY style Pizza that in my opinion, far exceeds the standards of any average Italian joint! It is that good! What makes it better is the friendly attitude and awesome enterprising spirit of its passionate owners! Really awesome and a hidden gem in Milpitas!

“Great NY style pizza & service”
Reviewed 22 March 2012

The service was friendly & great. We started out with garlic knots - they were made fresh (not frozen) & soaked in olive oil & garlic - but not too strong. Very good. Then we ordered a large NY style pizza - not quite soft enough to call classic NY style, but very good. I would have asked for a little more sauce & my wife wanted less cheese. They can make panazarottis also, which you may know if you lived in New Jersey, but it is not on the menu so you have to ask for it.
