The outside of the restaurant was nothing special but the inside was decorated as an Italian street with wood doors, awnings, and other interesting features. Aaron, our server, was top notch...very attentive and laughed at my silly comments. My wife could not finish her Lasagna but enjoyed it. My spicy chicken spaghetti in a cream sauce was good to the...

Although Macaroni Joe's is rather pricey, it is a lovely place for a special dinner. Do not miss the Mob Queso as an appetizer. It is absolutely divine! I have never had a bad meal there - everything is truly superb.

The atmosphere is romantic for couples. Very Italian looking inside The duck is sensational. Rather pricey menu. Don't go on holidays as they have an extremely limited menu then and can't get the usual items that are so much better.

Our date night restaurant before going out for a show. Atmosphere is cozy and reminds us of our travels in Italy. I started with the Fried Calamari, then the Steak Diane $23 with Mushrooms, Shallots, Whipped Potatoes and Asparagus. My spouse had the Fresh Salmon on Cedar $21, with Asparagus and Potatoes. The wine selection is very good also excellent... More

We tried this place because we were referred, but by a couple who loves to try wine. We don't. It was an ok atmosphere and the food was good but not really for the price.
