Superb Tableside Caesar Salad but the rest was barely so-so

Date night and the Colosseum was on the radar because of it being Italian, the reviews and the menu ideas presented on the internet. Luke was articulate and filled in admirably for another servier this night. Samples of two Pinot Grigio's were brought over and we ordered one of each on reflection... read more

My girlfriend and I went here once and never returned 6 months ago. Everything was terrible from the calamari being over cooked to the chicken parm having a funky taste and I am basically a chicken parm carnoisseur getting it at every new Italian restaurant I go to. The service was also garbage. I wouldn't recommend this place to my... More

Four of us shared a meal at this well-known Salem NH restaurant. This is not the place for a quiet, romantic, intimate dining experience. The restaurant is open and bright and a good place to go with friends or family. Our drinks were prepared in an professional way and the wait-staff was attentive and helpful. The comments on our meals... More

This place is totally amazing. My wife and I have been coming here for years. The only problem I have is I never know what to get because I can't make up my mind I love everything on menu. And the family is awsome. They are so warm and kind to all the place is always so clean. The two... More

It has been a long time but we were riding by and we said... Let's try it. We were VERY happy!! We were there for lunch and had: Stuffed green pepper soup - it was a special but I think it should be on the menu every day. Was basically a deconstructed stuffed pepper and it was delicious! Spaghetti with... More

I've visited this restaurant many times. The bar is my favorite place to be as the people are so welcoming and engaging. The food and drinks are excellent.

Looked at the menu . Prices were out of sight. See you later. Maybe if it was an occassion I would consider eating here but too expensive for a lunch. Waiter was very nice He looked surprised we were leaving.

Have been here four times. Twice our meals were ok, hard to screw up pasta from a box, and twice the meals were attempts at sophisticated, up scale dishes that clearly missed the mark. We find it weird, as their marketing brags about the most dining awards north of Boston, etc, but its really just a run-of-the-mill pasta/red sauce joint.... More

We eat here several times a year and have never have been disappointed . The food and service is always top notch we usually sit at the bar as the service is a little faster but will get a table for a nice relaxing dinner. You can have a nice dinner for two for around $60 or you can add... More
