Colletta’s cuisine draws influence largely from Northern Italy, presenting new interpretations of Italian cuisine alongside traditional favorites. The restaurant promises excellence from its kitchen, featuring a wood-fire pizza oven, grills and rotisseries, alongside an ever-changing, seasonal menu of pizzas, pastas and small plates curated by executive chef Jason Stern. Staying true to its Italian roots, Colletta’s “For the Table” menu offers family-style options for a personalized, communal dining experience. A full menu is also available a la carte.

The space, designed by architect David Thompson, is centered around its kitchen with its wood burning oven front and center. A chef’s counter brings diners closer to the excitement, overlooking the kitchen and pasta station. A breezy patio off the bar offers an alfresco dining experience, and Avalon shoppers and guests can pick up a Colletta cocktail from the bar window to enjoy while strolling the property.
