Coloseum Legerova

Pizza Colloseum is a popular Czech restaurant chain with many branches around Prague. We decided to try the Legerova branch, which was often considered to be the finest one. A smoking section is situated in the ground floor and boasts a very clean, stylish and contemporary design. In comparison with the modern interior of the ground floor, a non-smoking basement section is really rustic. For no reason I could understand, non-smokers were again „punished“ with the ground floor, where you could actually smell the cigarette smoke from upstairs. The basement section features a kid area with a table, chairs, some plush animals and a TV screen.


When we were ordering drinks, my mother asked for 0,1 of red wine. The waitress snapped at her that they only sold 0,15 of red wine (59 CZK) . She talked to us in a harsh and angry tone for the rest of the time. She was so inflexible that every our request seemed problem. Then we had a home-made ice tea with fresh mint and strawberries (59 CZK) and a big bottle of sparkling water (89 CZK).


At the beginning they brought a bread with butter. The bread was very tasty but the butter was very cold and tasteless. The chicken broth was good, nicely served in big plate, so as to make the small portion seem big. The unpleasant surprise came with kids chicken broth, which was identical to my chicken broth. I found it very salty for small kids and returned it. The waitress informed me that it was just as salty as my chicken broth because it was exactly the same soup, only a smaller portion (similar price though). I left it without any comment.


Then we had Gnocchi di patate della Nonna (150 CZK) and Strizzapreti Prada (165 CZK). I found the pasta dish excellent and complete. I would definitely order it again on my next visit. Gnocchi were good but as my Italian companion remarked, the dish lacked something.


My Italian companion had Pizza Napoletana (155 CZK) e Polpo alla Siciliana con rucola (235 CZK). The pizza was good but a bit dry. The Octopus salad should be called a “potato salad” because there was hardly any octopus in it. In any case, it was a tasty and nicely-flavoured potato salad for 235,- CZK. I would not recommend this dish because it lacked a key ingredient – a fresh octopus.


At the end we had an excellent Italian coffee. It was just perfect - great quality coffee from a well-maintained coffee machine.


The total bill was about 1.100,- CZK. I will definitely return to a Coloseum restaurant, but there are a lot of branch.
