Thought the portions were small. Expensive and the food was just ok. Disappointed. Amalfis is way better.

Very wide offering of Italian food. Had the chicken colosseum. Absolutely delicious. House-made pasta tasted fresh. Large saltwater fish tank in the center of the restaurant was fun to look at while eating. Quiet venue (although we went on a Wednesday evening). Great experience overall.

The Colosseum has been in Salem NH for years. It's always great. We've tried the new Italian restaurants and they're good, but for a great Italian meal head to the Colosseum

I have been eating here for years and am never disappointed. Though it has been a while since I have eaten here. The food has not really changed over the years, the meals are made with fresh pasta.

The only reason we returned to this restaurant, after our first expensive and disappointing visit ,was because our friends had a gift certificate they wanted to use. We were seated, ordered a bottle of wine and it was served. During the conversation, my friend, inadvertently, knocked over her wine glass. When the hostess finally came over, she sponged the spill... More

This is a wonderful restaurant with excellent food, but also has a wonderful staff. The food was amazing and I would highly recommend The Colosseum Restauran to everyone in this area. The whole experience was worth the trip.
