We have eaten here a few times when visiting Harlingen and everything we have tried has been delicious, plus it is a lovely place to have a relaxing dinner. They have some excellent vegetarian and gluten free choices on their menu, along with tasty fish, steak and chicken. It is a place not to miss!

Conveniently located close to the Jackson Street, that identifies the traditional downtown in this small and safe city, Colletti's is an option for those conoisseurs who look for more than pizza and gelato. I could appreciate the great effort from management to offer Italian dishes with limited availability of ingredients.

Colletti's is the only family owned Italian restaurant in Harlingen and is located in the historic The Reese, downtown. On the menu, you will find generous portions, bold flavors and reasonable prices. Our lunches are served Monday to Friday from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. In addition to our full lunch menu, we have daily specials which constantly bring new flavors and exciting dishes to you and your guests. The pizzas from our brick oven have quickly become the buzz about town with their thin Naples crust and endless possibilities featuring different sauce and topping options.The food will be home-style and not pretentious. Whenever possible local suppliers will be used and area farms will grow custom produce to our exacting standards. The philosophy of the chefs' cooking style for Colletti's is to use the freshest, most wholesome ingredients to prepare food that is tasty, authentic and simply prepared.
