Went there with my wife and was greatly disappointed. We were seated about 5 booths from the kitchen entry and were treated to bawdy songs and loud, obnoxious language by the pierced, tattooed kitchen staff. One of which, who looked like a lost pirate or a re-incarnated King Tut, continually walked out to the parking lot for unknown reasons. We, at times, could not even speak to each other. The food took forever and there was only one other couple in the restraunt. The place smelled like stale cigarette smoke and the waitress looked and acted like she might have been late for an AA meeting. I will never enter the place again.
Ok, I would not consider myself a food snob because I realize there are places out there, holes-in-the-wall as people would call them, that exist in small towns that have really good food. As I travel a lot, I endlessly search out these places as if it was a quest for the Holy Grail. However my experience at Colianno's unfortunately wasn't the small town/good food experience I was looking for.
My husband and I had come to Bullhead City on a business trip and didn't feel like hitting Laughlin for food or fun, since we were tired from our traveling. So reading the overall good reviews for this restaurant made it seem like this was our hole-in-the-wall to go to.
Upon entering, we noticed a strong cigarette smell, which we assumed eminated from the bar area. When seated, we noticed ashtrays at every table. I really don't care if people are allowed to smoke in a restaurant - I just don't want to smell it next to me. It would have been nice if they had a separate section for non-smokers.
We ordered pan cheese pizza and seafood pasta to share. The pasta was average (oily and not al dente), but the pizza was way too cheesy and the crust tasted like sourdough bread due to the sour pizza sauce. While nothing can compare to true Italian or New York-style pizza, there are restaurants that make a really good pizza pie, but unfortunately this was not one of them.
As the restaurant really wasn't that crowded at 6:30/ 7ish, that should have been our warning sign of things to come. But, like all adventurous eaters, we gave it our best shot and came away with the determination to tell travelers like ourselves to give other restaurants in Bullhead City a second look (even [~gasp~] chain restaurants like Chili's).
A positive aspect: Waitresses were friendly and attentive
Of course there are people who like this kind of food and I don't want to steer them away. I suppose my audience for this review consist of people who live in bigger cities and who appreciate pure, authentic taste over ambience and have experienced different regional and international cuisines.
