Our Food & Our Team
Mangia bene, vive bene. Eat well, live well. It’s a choice. The Colatina Exit is steeped in time honored tradition and has been serving generations of our communities’ families and visitors since 1971. Our world famous pizzas are hand-thrown and baked directly on stones at temperatures reaching 600°F, just as they were in Rome 3000 years ago. We pride ourselves on our fresh salads, creative seasonal pasta entrees, fresh seafood, hand-cut veal, steaks, and home-made desserts. All of our products are hand-made to order using the best local and imported ingredients that we can find.
We are only as good as our people. Our vision has been to create a positive environment to work, where all are respected and appreciated for their part in our common goal – serving you! We ask our staff to bring their best selves to their position each day. We encourage them to ask questions and find solutions, to make us a little better each day for them having been here. Our desire is to create a sense of family and ownership amongst our staff. On this simple cornerstone, an excellent business has been built.
Giving Back to Our Community
It is our privilege to give back to those communities that sustain us. We welcome opportunities to get involved. Fundraisers, school programs, youth sports, and conservation projects are some of the things that we do. We believe strong communities need all members to actually engage. Requests for in-house fundraising events, food donations, volunteer efforts, or gift certificate donations can be sent to email@example.com. We have raised and contributed over $100,000 through our fundraising efforts and hundreds of volunteer hours. We encourage all who can to support locally owned businesses and community-based nonprofits.
Certified Green Restaurant
We are one of a handful of certified green restaurants in Vermont. We accomplish this through a driven effort to recycle, compost, buy local, and by constantly monitoring our footprint. We have diverted over 100,000 tons of waste from our local landfills. We believe that small locally-owned businesses are not our past but our future. We are all accountable for where we live so we naturally care about our neighbors, our schools, our environment, and our economy. We encourage everyone to support our socially-responsible, locally-owned, independent businesses, and community-based nonprofits. Coming soon: Colatina Solar!
