I went her for a family and birthday celebration. This place has so much potential. I ordered the veal piccata unfortunately one of the vegetable still had one of the price tags on it that was a turn off sauce was basically like five sticks of butter and there was a little bit of fat and stringyness on the veal...

We were visiting some friends in Southern NH and they suggested the Colosseum as a place they had been to in past years but no recent experience. Sounded good, so we headed there. We had a 7pm reservation on a Thursday night but it wasn't very crowded. The hostess greeted us very warmly, and, as she was setting up our... More

An excellent twist on pasta carbonara by substituting gnocchi in a creamy sauce with peas and panchetta.

We've been to the Colosseum on several occasions, and the food is always superb. The staff is very nice, and the restaurant has a nice, traditional, "old school" feel to it. We like to dine here when we are just sick of all the chain restaurants and want something authentic. The only down-side is the cost...somewhat expensive, but I suppose... More

We have been eating here for several years. Great Italian food, super clean inside, and staff is like family. Never been disappointed with anything we have eaten here. Even the drinks are great. The food is very reasonable in price and the staff is helpful in helping you pick out a meal.

We have been to the Colosseum on three different occasions and at all three trips there were issues. One time we waited forever for a table, even though we had a reservation. Another time the food was cold (even after sending it back). And the last time we had poor service in general.

Excellent lunch menu along with affordable prices ($5.95-$17.95) & what an extensive cocktail menu......reminds you of the 1950's & 60's. Beautiful decor but uncomfortable, upright booth seats...... All in all a great lunch, portions, service, meet/greet & prices.

This was our third visit to this restaurant. Our two previous visit went very well with respect to the service and quality of food. This time we were a little disappointed. My wife found a hair in her pasta dish. My daughter in law found the pasta she had was too watery. My son , grandson and I were pleased... More
