Italy in Texas

Very good pastas, fish done well and steak dishes cooked perfect. High points here are pastas and the Insane wine list. San Francisco meets Amarillo.

We were looking for an Italian restaurant with a good wine selection while we were visiting our new granddaughter in Amarillo. A local recommended Macaroni Joe's so we gave it a try. The atmosphere was styled after Tuscany and the place had a very intimate feel. The wine selection was large, the wait staff was good but not overly attentive.... More

We went on a lunch date in May and it was nice. You pay a little for the ambience by sometimes being ignored. I got the Chicken Saltimbocca and it was really good - I also love the Bayou pasta. My hubby had the Filet and it was also vert good.

What a pleasant surprise on our journey! Loved the interior...reminded me of Tuscany. Salmon was excellent as were the cheesy jalapeño grits. My husband had steak; also excellent. Would highly recommend!

Went here with business partners for dinner, ordered the lemon garlic shrimp. There was a lot of sauce, I would order it light next time, but the taste was delicious. We had carrot cakes for dessert and it was brought to us straight from the oven, warm and not too sweet. The atmosphere is interesting, but not the best part... More

The atmosphere was pleasing. You were spaced comfortably from other diners. The staff was efficient and pleasant. The food was fantastic. I loved the goat cheese salad and the shrimp pasta was rich and smooth.

The food is always very well prepared and presented. Wait staff old school attentive. Don't let the name fool you this is no spaghetti factory type chain; this is a fine restaurant. Entrees are reasonably priced for quality, it's the wine that will send your bill upwards. Most red is $10/glass and up. It is very good wine though and... More

I held the rehearsal dinner for my son's wedding at Macaroni Joes, and could not have been more pleased. The staff was amazingly helpful and accommodation. The food was fabulous! We offered a selection of about six different entrees, and all were outstanding. One of the best ribeye's I've ever tasted. The wine list is out of this world, and... More

I really enjoyed this dining experience and our waiter was extremely attentive. Three of us ordered the Lemon Buttered Shrimp Pasta, it was very rich and tasty. My boyfriend ordered steak and potato and said his was good too. We saved enough room for dessert and had Coconut Cream Parfait of which we were going to share, but ordered our... More
