We have been using this restaurant for takeout throughout the pandemic since moving to Salem, NH this year. However, this is the first time we had eaten in the restaurant and we were extremely pleased. The atmosphere was beautiful, the booth was very roomy and...comfortable, the music playing was extremely pleasant and the staff from the hostesses and our waitress, Kaitlyn were very pleasant and efficient. The meal was absolutely delicious! From appetizers, entrees, to desserts, everything was fantastic. Highly recommend.More

Had an oversight with an item that we ordered for dinner. When I called to explain what occurred, the owner's son was most gracious and apologetic and offered options. We asked to have the missing dish delivered. And Annibale Todesca, the chef owner, brought the...dish to our home and also apologized for the error!!! WOW!! We are most appreciative for this special effort and look forward to another great meal from The Colosseum. Thank you, Mr. Todesca and staff!!! Armando Atkinson, NHMore

We enjoyed our dinner, service was prompt and friendly, food was served hot and in a timely fashion and the price was equal to the service. This was our first visit and with the plethera of Italian restaurants in Salem it may be sometime before...we have a second visit, however, at some point we would return.More

I had dinner here a few weeks ago and could not get over how delicious the shrimp fransese and the veal saltimbocca were, a step above anyone in the area. The seasonings brought these extremely fresh and delightful dishes to a whole new level. The...second time just as good. As for the person who commented on the staff all were professional, knowledgeable about the COVID guidelines and were following through with sanitation procedures. You could feel very good about dining here.More

We ate there with another couple last night due to Covid dining was outside. The wait staff wore masks but no gloves the food is not very good quality, very little meat in the Bolognese sauce. They have an upcharge for angel hair spaghetti don’t...tell you! My friend had Veal Parmesan it was so overcooked it could not eat it. Overall just terrible and quite pricey!!!More

First night out after this journey with Covid 19. We sat outside under a tent and the staff did a fabulous job. Trying to get acclimated to serving tables outside on a hot muggy night quickly and with accuracy had to be difficult. The walk...alone inside to the bar or kitchen to retrieve the orders was a long one. I can say from the waiter to the runner, it was a great night. We were aware that we had a 90 minute max window to drink, eat, etc. but because we were the last seating they didn't kick us out. They let us sit there listen to music and enjoy the evening. It was a very nice night, very well thought out by the Collosseum. In these uncertain time, this was pleasantly unexpected.More

Stared at dirty dishes piling up and falling at the bar. Service was lacking. Experienced, 25 year veteran ignored my untouched dessert for 39 minutes. Did not get what I ordered or it was not done yet. Owner walking the property, speaking to no one....3 hours dining. Will not be back. Too many choices in the area that do a nicer job. Sad to see.More

One of the best meals I've had at an Italian restaurant in a long time. We were celebrating two birthdays. I didn't need to mortgage the house to pay for the meal. It was very reasonable

Response from Richard H | Reviewed this property |
THw Colosseum is quite large and if you ask to be seated away from the bar area either to the right of the host/greeting area there is a strong chance you will have a quiet meal.
