I took my boyfriend to dinner
I took my boyfriend to dinner for his birthday he had never been before. My family and I grew up going to the Colosseum so I already knew it was fantastic.However it had been about 20 years since I had been and was curious to know if it was still as delicious.Knowing that Anaballe was still the owner I was confident it would be a wonderful experience.We enjoyed two bottles of wine, an appetizer, entrees and dessert. The waiter was professional yet had a sense of humor. The food was delectable. My only recommendation would be to put more flavor and stuffing into the stuffed mushrooms and I wasn't used to Tiramasu being so thin and runny with cookie stuck in the center. The two vast textures didn't compliment each other.

I usually go to Boston for good Italian. But the colosseum was just as good. The drinks and service were a little weak, but for the price I didn't expect much more.

Not being from, or living in, NH I have little knowledge of the local restaurants. This place was recommended to me by several locals and I must admit that I was very pleased. I will be dining there again when I'm in the area. The food was very good and I could not find any fault in the service. While their menu had excellent choices in many areas, it did fall short in the area of seafood -- only five choices, four of which were shrimp dishes.

When we got to the restaurant our Open Table reservation was not in their reservation system. When I showed them my confirmation email from Open Table, they were very helpful and found us a table for 4.
Mother's Day dinner out was very nice! Meal and service were very good and Mom was very happy.

We have been to the Colosseum, Salem, NH many times. On every occasion we have not been disappointed. The food and service were all excellent. And I received a rose for Mothers Day!

A Taste of Italy
The service was very good and the meals were enjoyed by our guests.
The owner visited our table several times and offered a complimentary limoncello after dinner.
I would recommend this restaurant !!

I decided to take my husband out without the kids for his birthday. It was perfect. Piano player who sounded like Frank Sinatra, attentive service and amazing food. Thanks!

The atomsphere was pleasant, the background music appropriate, the menu (and pricing) reasonable. We both enjoyed different versions of a veal dish and each tasted superb. Cooked perfectly and seasoned for what I suspect is authentic Italian flavors. If I were to point out two drawbacks: 1) some of the tables and chairs were wobbily, we had to change table and a chair to be more comfortable, but the staff was very cordial in accommodating our choices; 2) With the fresh bread - I enjoy a good seasoned dipping oil and not just butter pats, this was provided when we asked for it but was the one low spot in the entire meal. Overall - it was a plesant experience and I would go back again, especially on a Thursday - its $5 martini night.

Service was wonderful. Several appetizers were enjoyed by all. Dinners were shared and received great reviews by all. Can't wait to go again. Some in the group had never been but, are looking forward to returning.

We chose The Colosseum because we wanted to have a wide variety of Italian foods to choose from. The menu is varied enough to accommodate all tastes and desires. The food was excellent and our servers were wonderful.

My husband had the veal parm and I had the veal Romolo and Remo. Both were good. We shared a bottle of wine that was very reasonably priced for a resaurant. Dessert was excellent and the service was very good. Overall, a good value.

I took my wife to The Colosseum Restaurant for our 1st year wedding anniversary. I had been there once before when I was younger and I still remembered how good the food was from 15 years ago! The dessert was like nothing I had ever tasted before and stuck with me to this day. Our experience was just as good as the first. Great food, great service at a reasonable price. They pull off flavors like I've not had anywhere else. Would highly recommend to anyone!

The atmosphere is comfortable and relaxed. We enjoyed everything we ordered. The baked mozzarella with pomodoro sauce was delicious and the Caesar salad was crisp. The homemade fettucini noodles in a carbonara sauce were very tasty. Equally good was the lobster ravioli in a vodka cream sauce. We finished off our meal with chocolate cake, which was quite good.

We found this place on OpenTable after not getting a table at our usual Italian resturant. This turned out to be a better overall experience. The food was excellent and the staff was friendly and the owners were especially welcoming to the elders. One note is that the food takes time to come and there is a "disclaimer" on the menu! But when it arrives, it is worth the wait. This will now be our go-to place when we are in the area.

Everything was elegant, our service, table placement, drinks and especially food. We all enjoyed ourselves and have talked about it since. Great time, looking forward to returning.
