Colletti's is the only family owned Italian restaurant in Harlingen and is located in the historic The Reese, downtown. On the menu, you will find generous portions, bold flavors and reasonable prices. Our lunches are served Monday to Friday from 11:00 AM
We enjoy our luncheon dates at Collettiâs. The food is always fresh and well prepared. I enjoy the $1 martinis which are smaller in size but are perfect for mid day libations. The atmosphere is open and well done. Definitely a place we take family and friends when they are in town.

Not the least expensive but reasonably priced. The staff are professional and very accommodating. They have gluten free items. Full service bar as well. They have a huge 36 inch pizza for The Who family. Lots of parking and a party sized room for reservations as well as outdoor dining and local music sometime.

We ate at the Olive Garden. Salad & bread sticks were good. I had a chicken margherita which was excellent. Service was good; she was very helpful and attentive
when we arrived there were a number of choices on the pizza buffet, none of them remotely hot. There were at least 6 whole pizzas out there, but they all looked like they had been sitting there for at least 30 minutes. There were also an equal number of whole pizzas sitting under the counter waiting to replace the cold ones on the buffet as soon as anyone was hungry enough to eat them. I decided to ask if they would make a plain cheese pizza, since that was not a variety already on the buffet, hoping that it would be hot. I asked if I needed to come back to get it or if they would bring it to the table. The guy asked where I was sitting and said he would bring 6 pieces for my husband and me when it was done in about 5 minutes. I went to the table and waited. No pizza. I went to the buffet area and told a differnt employee that I had requested a cheese pizza that was supposed to be delivered to the table. He said the pizza I requested was out on the buffet and that they never took food to the table.I expressed my displeasure to him and he said nothing in response, just stared at me. Since it was already on the buffet, it was not as hot as I would have liked and there were only 4 pieces left. I don't think it would be possible to get hot pizza here due to their procedure of having one pizza waiting under the counter to replace the one on the buffet. I don't know about other people, but I think pizza is best served right from the oven, not after it has been sitting for 20-30 minutes waiting for the cheese to coagulate. Needless to say, we will never be back and it will be a long time until we try out another Mr. Gatti's.

The Best Italian Place in the Valley, featuring Chef Russo's authentic Italian recipes made fresh-to-order, created using quality fresh ingredients. We custom blend spices and our fresh, all-natural ingredients that will leave your taste buds wanting more
Russo's is a newly opened restaurant in Harlingen with other locations throughout the Rio Grande Valley. For an order to go, I tried their lasagna and a large pizza with three toppings. The lasagna portion was very small (essentially a 4" x 4" square) and the pizza had quality ingredients, but the pizza was still clearly inferior to The Pizzeria in Harlingen. The price (without any drinks or salad) was $41. Yikes! Their food pricing is not on their website and was not provided when I placed my order. Unfortunately, for Russo's, there are other quality "full-service" Italian food restaurants in Harlingen and I will not be returning.
