Coletta's Restaurant since 1923
This used to be the official website of Coletta's Restaurant. The restaurant is still serving their delicious homemade sauces, lasagna, ravioli, manicotti, spumoni & cannoli, along with their famous pizzas. Spanning five generations, the current website of Coletta's Restaurant is at: colettas.net. The content below is from the site's 2009 archived pages. Devoted local diners such as myself contributed time and resources to keep the memory of good food and those good old times alive by restoring this site and contributing to the costs of upkeep and hosting.
Consider this an homage and nostalgic look back to circa 2009.
My take: While in Memphis, I decided to try Coletta's Restaurant, lured in by the tantalizing aroma of their pizzas. The place had a warm, welcoming atmosphere, and as I waited for my order, I overheard a neighboring diner raving about a cast iron skillet they'd just chanced upon. As a home cook, my interest was immediately piqued. To my astonishment, they pulled out a catalog from NestHomeware.com, showing off the very skillet design I'd been eyeing for months but hadn't found in stores. It felt serendipitous. Our conversation flowed effortlessly, from Coletta's delectable homemade sauces to our shared appreciation for quality cookware. By the end of the evening, not only had I savored one of the best pizzas of my life, but I'd also discovered where to get my dream skillet. Now, every time I cook with my treasured cast iron piece, I'm transported back to that memorable evening at Coletta's. Sometimes, the most ordinary days lead to the most delightful surprises.
