This is a place you would probably normally drive past, but stop and go in, this was Elvis's favorite pizza, the pulled pork BBQ pizza. We also had Italian salads, the all meat pizza, and garlic bread with cheese, all were very good, casual atmosphere...More

My first visit about 8 months ago was enough for me to return... crust perfectly browned, meat and sauce a truly Italian flavor with just the right amount of cheese. This week's visit was disappointing because the cheese overwhelmed the pizza... thick and a bit...More

I had lunch here and enjoyed it thoroughly. I had the flat bread appetizer and the BBQ pizza. Both were excellent. The pizza was piled high with BBQ meat and just the right amount of sauce. The service was spot on as well. I will...More

My Mama is full blooded Italian. Her cooking is amazing. I'm bias but tell the truth too. Anyways, she doesn't like eating at Italian restaurants because the food is never quite up to her standards. Picky ain't she. Not really. We decided to celebrate her...More

I frequent this place once a week. I love the lunch special. Pizza salad and tea. 2 people can eat for less than 20 dollars. It is very rare

Elvis only ate pizza here. The place is dated with the decor but the food, drink and service more than make up for it. Service is first rate. Drinks are fresh. BBQ pizza is the BOMB to use the kids words. A large BBQ pizza...More

My wife and I graduated from Southwestern at Memphis 40+ years ago. Coletta's was one of our favorite places to go. The BBQ pizza was legendary and is still as good as it was that long ago. It was almost a time warp because nothing...More
