The Colosseum is a place of excellence. The food is great and consistent, the staff is professional and attentive, and the facility it top notch clean and safe. I highly recommend the Colosseum for any and all occasions. Best food and people ever !!
Always a pleasure to go to this restaurant. Great food, drinks, atmosphere at this longtime family owned and operated small business. They also do catering. I highly recommend this venue
A quick overnight in Salem to catch a flight from Logan lead us to The Colosseum. A nice experience at a fair price. I had the Eggplant Parmigiana which was ok but not excellent, a bit soggy and not much cheese. My companion had The Chicken over Roasted Vegetables which was excellent, nice variety of veggies and the chicken was moist and tasty. Although we opted not to try dessert they looked delicious.
First time diner here.
Both food and specialty drinks were fantastic. Delicious and reasonably priced. We had an incredible waitress (Michelle D), with the perfect combo of excellent service skills and pleasant personality. Would definitely recommend this place and plan to go back soon.
The Chicken Parmesan is amazing! We also had meatballs and sausage which were fantastic.
Excellent food and service. We are always happy when we go here! Great Job!
Nice italian restaurant nearby. Did well with distancing. Food was OK - not amazing.
we keep going here for our anniversary, no were else
Authentic, Italian Food the way my mother learned in Naples, Italy. Not too many places offer Spaghetti Aglio Olio, a favorite I grew up with. I'm happy to always find it here at the Colosseum. And they make it as I requested, with Shrimp, just as my mother would make it. It's a keeper!
Was surprised an Italian restaurant doesn’t ask if you want fresh grated cheese on top of entree. Oh that’s right Covid nipped that. Okay so the sauce wasn’t as thick or red as I wud have liked. More like a vodka I had the eggplant & chicken parm. Merlot was nice & waitress told us what it was. Overall ok but there’s closer restaurant I’ll be going to instead of repeating this one
4 good Apps. 4 good dishes. Not " blow you away" spectacular but good enough. My Osso Bucco was a little fatty and covered in Risotto instead of under the pork . Great bottle of Super Tuscan at a decent price. The staff was good. You could tell the waitress was new. Very,very nice but i gave her the Bottle of wine order and she thought it was a food dish. We all got a laugh including her.
Amazing food as usual never disappointed when I go here
Awesome food as always
This is our go-to restaurant for amazing authentic Italian food, great service and relaxing atmosphere.
The food was very poor quality. The sauce taste like Ragu.
The service was amazing but I won’t be going back because the food wasn’t amazing.
Food was pretty good quality.
Outdoor seating is what we had originally wanted but it had just rained.
They have a huge tent and tables and chairs setup in the back.
My friend wasn't too big on her Martini
The chefs at the Colosseum blend the most incredible sauces to go with the meals. The food is delicious as good as or better than North End restaurants
The service this visit was terrible, we were seated quickly outside, the waiter we had did not even recognize we were there. Bread was delivered immediately...we continued to wait 23 minutes, mind you very hot and humid out. The waiter served the drinks to table next to us and proceeded to exit back into restaurant walking past us, not noticing we had NO WATER in this extreme heat. As he walked past me heading inside I stood up and told him we were leaving, he turned around and stare in here, way too late buddy!! WE LEFT and had a great meal with great service at Tuscan Kitchen.
It’s a shame I have to write this, because I love The Colosseum.. Ben there for Valentine’s Day, take out during this Pandemic and had Birthdays there...
I rated the food on this review for past meals as we did not eat!!
Absolutely delicious. No improvements needed on our part.
This was our first visit to the Colosseum. The service was excellent, our drinks were mixed perfectly. The food was fresh and delicious, and the portions were generous. For appetizers we ordered the bruschetta, stuffed mushrooms and calamari. There was plenty for the six of us to share. Our entrees included the veal francese, chicken saltimbacco, chicken alfredo, spaghetti with meatballs, stuffed calamari, and chicken parm, and they were all outstanding. The chef's fresh pasta of the day was gemelli and it was incredible. Can't wait to go back.
Very good !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The food was great, as always. The service was wonderful. We got dessert, which we normally don't, and it was amazing!
The food was good, the ambiance good service was excellent overall good choice

My favorite Italian restaurant ever! Would recommend it to anyone.
Love the food. Always a bit salty for my taste, but still good. Service is always good.
Always the best Italian food around!
The dinner was amazing. I had the shrimp scampi and it was one of the very best I have ever had. Nice work!
We are frequent diners and the food and service was great as usual.
Good Italian meals, good service/portions/value.....
Excellent service and food. We’ll be back!
We love to eat at the Colosseum restaurant. They are always very professional and the staff is great to deal with. Very friendly. Food is very good, always.
The veal is always our go-to! I had the saltimboca and my husband had the veal colloseum. Our friend had gnocchi and meatballs. She loved the gnocchi but didn’t like the meatball at all. Maybe just a bad night.
Everything excellent as usual, food, service, and overall experience
Friendly staff and wonderful food Highly recommended eating here
Amazing Italian food!!
I thought the food and service both great. I'll be back!!!
Nice way to celebrate with the family on Father’s Day. Food was excellent and the staff was great. Very enjoyable experience and will definitely be back!
