My husband and I love sitting in the bar and listening to the piano player. He is great! Call ahead to see if there is live music playing the night you want to go. The schedule does change.

Four in party and seated quickly. Waiter arrived and asked, "have you been here before?" I replied "No" and was met with a canned response if "welcome back" The menu was quite large and the waiter stopped by the table twice in 5 minutes time asking if we were ready to order. After the second inquiry, he disappeared and returned... More

This has probably turned into my favorite Italian repeat visit restaurant. Service is great even when it gets really busy. Food quality is outstanding. A delightful dining experience with flair at a reasonable price.

My family and I have been eating here since we moved to Salem about 16 years ago. The atmosphere is always amazing, there's always a ton of food, in the service is always spot on. Even if we don't eat in the restaurant, we go in sometimes to buy just the pasta sauce and take it home and use it... More

Came here again with my family. No complaints and all of our meals were perfect. Ended our special evening with their homemade Limoncello! Absolutely delicious. I am definitely coming back here.

Favorite place to grab fantastic chicken marsala, table-side ceasar salad and your fantastic limoncello martini - dessert in a glass, always perfectly made. Keep up the great work!

I brought my girlfriend to eat there and i am from Salem. very classy and i loved the atmosphere. id recommend the chicken francese. I love Italian food and places like bertuccis, olive garden and carrabas just can not compare to this place. It is definitely a lot more elegant and the overall experience is so much more authentic to... More

Well here I go again, writing a review for a restaurant I have been to before. I usually don't write a second review, unless there is something new that needs to be shared. First off, the food here is second to none as Italian food goes. I met the Owner, Annibale (Hannibal) at one of our previous visits. He was... 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

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 and tasting. Calamari as an app was nicely... More
