Very mixed meal. Some of the party enjoyed their meal and were vey happy with it, others, especially those who had sea food, were very disappointed. The rubber like stuffed squid was filled with what can only be described as grey goo - very sad that animals had to die to make such a poor dish. There are other places... More

Delicious! I ordered the veal piccata, One of the best I've every had. Large portions, prepared and cooked very well. Service was excellent as well. We were there with a family group of 9 people and everyone enjoyed the atmosphere, service and food. Unfortunately, we do not live nearby so it may be a while before we can return.

After visiting America's Stonehenge, we decided to have dinner at the Colosseum Restaurant in Salem, NH. Upon entering the restaurant we were immediately at ease and knew we would enjoy it. We sat at a booth which was near a sparkling clean aquarium. The booth table had a white tablecloth on it which to us was a treat in itself.... More

Had a great dinner with family to celebrate an anniversary. The ceasar salad prepared table side was excellent. I absolutely loved the chicken francese. Everyone enjoyed their meal.

The usual Thursday night date night brought us to The Colosseum Restaurant last night. The dining experience started innocent enough. We arrived without a reservation, were greeted by the hostess right away and immediately brought to a waiting table. Water glasses were filled before we knew it and we met our Waiter; Estefan soon thereafter. We have been skipping appetizers... More

I am gluten free and called restaurant to see if they had gluten free menu. They said they had gluten free pasta. Went for lunch today only to find out they charge $5.00 extra for a scoop of pasta. If we were alone I would have walked. I can see a little upcharge but not that much
