Go upstairs to the outdoor patio in the sun, order light food and wine, look around and you will not believe that you are not in some Mediterranean town. We had a hard time tearing ourselves away (after all, we were in the Pacific Northwest).

We were seated outdoors on the upstairs balcony patio...we could watch the downtown activity and had a glimpse of the surrounding mountains as well. I enjoyed a delicious Caesar salad with salmon. The salad came with skewers of shrimp and salmon; I requested all salmon. It was prepared very well; not dry, and the dressing was delicious. In fact, the... More

The salads are wonderful! Has one of the nicest atmospheres of restaurants in town, with beautiful patio dining outback, sophisticated interior dining area, and great out door patio over looking the main street of downtown Ashland

Can be busy around theater time as it is next to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival so reservations are recommended. Excellent Italian food.

Going to a play? Walk out the door and the theaters are just steps away! Combine the location with friendly staff, timely service, and great food and you've got a winner...

We had a terrible experience in this restaurant. We definetely will not come back, and will not recommend to our hotel guests. I ordered a pasta, but I could tasted only garlic. I wasted my money. The vase and decanters on the table were very dirty. The soup came with my pasta tasted just old, they must be rewarmed the... More

We enjoyed a late lunch and I think it was the perfect time of day because the restaurant was very quiet. My husband ordered a pepperoni pizza and I ordered a caesar salad and small Hawaiian pizza. The fresh bread brought to the table was delicious. The service was quite friendly, and the atmosphere was nice. All of the food... More

The sauce for the pasta was very good, but the clams were large, overcooked, so trying to eat them was a challenge...very rubbery. We had eaten at that restaurant before, and it was very good. I would think twice before ordering clams there again

If you want to hang out with Festival cast and crew, you should grab a draft beer or drink here at this favorite post-show hangout. I especially enjoyed an amber ale called "Dead Guy," which I believe is a reference to the Bard.

The two coupled restaurants, Martino's and Macaroni's Ristorante (one upstairs and one down) provide an excellent Italian menu, especially the complete and tasty list of pasta dishes, friendly and timely service (necessary if dinner is to be followed by a play), an appropriate wine list, and a location immediately adjacent to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s three theaters. Seated at 6:30... More
