Pros: good service

I've been twice and both times they sat us right on time. The service is terrific and the entres and yummy. Try the antipasto della casa for appetizers. Entrees are large and the portions (salmone, chicken, ) yummy. Desserts are pretty good but I wouldn't rave about them. Try this place. It's tops!

I didn't like this place at all. The restaurant is dirty everywhere. The servers were not enough so we took a while to get our orders. Our meal was cold by the time we got it. I didn't like the fact that I had to pay 20% gratuity. Sorry, I do not recommend this place.

Nice and attentive servers. I think they actually eat there as well...they were able to make recommendations with confidence.

GREAT SERVICE\r\n\r\nI have been a regular at COLAS since it's opening. The food is consistently great and have always really enjoyed eating there. Sevice has always been average but the food has always made up for it until recently. The past few times that we have had dinner our waiter (forgot to get his name/ Bangladeshi guy ) has made our dining experience all the better. He's very knowledgable and eager to give his opinion about the food,wines and beer. Always pleasant and in a short time remembered us by name. It's a personal touch that is really appreciated . You can tell that this is someone who cares about the customers .I now can add not just great food but GREAT SERVICE as well.

I have been dinning so many restaurants in my life, one day i was stop at the restaurant by the name cola's. When we enter the restaurant it was almost empty, so got a table near by the window. I have ordered cremini mushrooms as a appetizer,and my entree was the special of the day seafood risotto,which was cooked with prawns,calamari, and clams. the best food i have ever had in this small restaurant. The desert was real key lime pie which was also excellent.Above all the service was excellent and the music was perfect. So i recommend people to visit this restaurant.

I haved lived in Italy more than 10 years, and have been dining so many places in Italy. I found this tiny restaurent was doing quite well more than 20 years. The food was excellent, such as our appetizer was Buffallo cheese which imported from italy and fresh grilled sardines was excellent.Our main dish which waiter brought excellent classical dish pappardelle rabbit ragu, and chicken cacciatore which chef was cooked exactly the way i was craving for many many years. finally i do not know how do explain cola's tiramusu and cheese cake was perfect. The service we were getting like two star restaurents. I really recommend people to visit the tiny restaurent.

My friend told me about this place and I knew I had to try it for myself. I went last night and the food was amazing. We started with the fried calamari and a salad of arugula and fresh fennel. The calamari were light and so tender! they were fried to perfection, And the salad tasted so fresh. Then I had the Lingunini with seafood and my BF had the Angel hair with salmon. Wow! Let me just tell you- we were pleased. The pasta was cooked al dente and the seafood was fresh and delicious. The sauces were light and very good. For these prices- you couldn't ask for a better dinner. During dinner we enjoyed some great wine. They offer so many by the glass that we got to taste a few. And we finished with a smooth chocolate mousse made with verona chocolate and some real espresso! The service troughout themeal was spot on and very friendly without being condesending. I highly recommend this place to anyone in the neighborhood or even coming from uptown- it it worth the trip.

There is nothing I can say bad about this place. Everything my family ordered- we loved. Starting with the bread and olive oil through some excellent Lasagna, Egglant, Gnocci and Chicken and ending ever so happily with a delicious Tiramisu. Service was excellent and the room is cozy. I recommend thi splace for family dinners and for romantic dates.

I have been going to this restaurant for 15 years. Never has a gratuity been added to the bill. Tonite, I brought guests from out of town for whom english is a second language. Surprise. Surpise. Gratuity was added to the bill...coincidence? Think not. \r\nFood at one time great...has declined in past year. Avoid.

I don't like the fact that this place has suggested gratuity, but beyond that this place is an intimate place to dine Italian in a small group or a date. The food is decent, the prices aren't terrible, and the service has been helpful most of the time.

Finally, a cozy, comfortable neighborhood place with suprisingly delicious cuisine in Chelsea! \nI had the pasta special, linguine with shrimp. It was amazing. My friend had eggplant parmesan, just as excellent.\nThe service was great. Our waiter was very pleasant, outgoing, and in fact...cute!\nThe price was so reasonable especially considering the quality of the cuisine and service. Can't wait to go back!\n\n

Sorry to post a negative comment on what was one of my favorite Chelsea restaurants. The reliably good food was overshadowed by the awful service on a recent visit. The place was not full, yet they were rushing us through the whole meal. Waiters and busboys were taking our water glasses and the tip tray off the table before we had counted the change. When I commented to my dinner date about the tip try incident, the waiter overheard me and confronted me about my attitude, in front of my date and other diners in the restaurant. We got into a heated argument and he actually told me to get out. It's such a shame that the bitchy wait staff has ruined what was otherwise a great value. As a former waiter, I know that some customers are a pain, however, yelling at a customer is simply not acceptable.

We were looking for another alternative to our favorite local Italian, so we tried here one weeknight.\n\nThe plalce itself is quite small, in a good way. The service was fine. We went for the specials and I enjoyed a nice Artichoke Ravioli that for the price was a good deal. \n\nBut, the buzz kill was the check. There was an item called ""Sug. Grat."" added to the tab at the bottom. This ""Suggested Gratuity"" was already included in the total. Mind you, we were a party of two, not ten. It also did not indicate that the ""suggestion"" was added in at 20%. When I questioned it, I was told I could re-calculate it by myself at any percentage I wanted -- fairly inconvenient and overall foolish. I have never seen a restaurant bill in this fashion. That was a deal killer for us.

I've been to Cola's only once, but I've had enough dining experiences to know a good restaurant when I dine in one. This is a fine example of great restaurant management: great menu, super friendly servers, and great food at great prices. I had a great dinner my first time there and will definitely return many more times...and pass the word along.

I have lived in Chelsea for the past 8 years and have been going to Cola's for the past 7 years. What an amazing and cute little restaurant! The food is great - always consistent and service is wonderful. The liguini vongole is amazing and the fish is always fresh. You will not be disappointed as they aim to please.
