Mmmmm

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

I love Italian food, all Italian food and it's in scarce supply in Amarillo. Meaning we have O.Garden, but I consider that mass quantity produced food. Macaroni Joes is very popular because of the excellent food, and service. My only compliant, and it's not really relevant to anyone else, but I like 'my space' - I like to spread my... More

Absolutely love eating here. Best place to take my wife for a date. Some of the best seafood I have ever had...make sure you make reservations though or you may have to wait.

First I will say the ambiance in the dining room is very nice, the service was very good. The food however needs some real improvement. This was our first time here, visiting from out of town for graduation of my son. The salad I'd ordered had sliced olives the kind you'd find on pizza toppings, although good I prefer the... More

My boyfriend and I love this place! It's a little pricey, but everything from the cocktails to the dessert (and everything in between) is wonderful! It's perfect for a special occasion or when you just want to take a little extra time to go somewhere quiet that will make any occasion seem special.

My husband overlooked this place on Tripadvisor b/c the name reminded him of some chain spaghetti joint. I took the time to dig into the reviews and we went ahead and booked a reservation for dinner. It was lovely - great ambiance, service was prompt and not overbearing, the meal delicious. The mega queso (again a misnomer. This was a... More
