A touch of Tuscany greets you at this quaint restaurant. My first time to visit did not disappoint me. I had the steak medallions. They were prepared just right and the atmosphere and wait staff was top notch. I did not have a reservation but did go at 5:30 before the rush hour. Will certainly eat here again.

From the moment you walk in, you'll feel like your not in a cowtown anymore. The place is dripping with personality that helps you feel like you've been transported to a Tuscan village. The food is excellent, with a variety of wonderful dishes, and the service is top notch. I'm no food snob, but this is definitely not chain italian... More

Macaroni Joes is a special place. Reservations are needed if you want a table. We ate in the bar where there was limited seating. My Mod Chicken was very flavorful and fresh. Not only did the meal taste good, dinner portions are ample. My only complaint is the veggies where not as warm as the meal. My wife had an... More

A romantic place to eat and enjoy with your friends or to have a party there (Christmas party or a rehearsal dinner is great)! The food is always wonderful. The bass meal is one of my favorites! The selection of wines is definitely something you want to try! If you want to experience a good meal and drinks and you... More

Went out for a date night on Halloween, had a early reservation and the staff was ready for us, we were seated on time. Our server Aaron gave us excellent service and also made some very good recommendations. We started with a glass of Red Wine and took our time with the menu. I then had the House Salad, Steak...

We had steaks, even though it's called Macaroni Joes. Easily one of the best steaks I've ever had. Chris was attentive and fun. Decor is cute but the hard surfaces case it to be a little noisy.

Excellent food here. A romantic atmosphere if you ask to be seated in a quiet area. Great wine selection. They have been around many years, and have not lost their appeal or quality. Try the mob quest!

I used to dread the first part of the drive to New Mexico. Was heading for a chain restaurant next to I-40 when we saw this place. What a delightful surprise. The dining room is decorated as the town square of an Italian village. My companions had large vodka martinis, Ahi salad and salmon salad. I had beer and green... More

We had dinner for 10 and this place is great place to kick back and enjoy some wine with friends or a romantic get away. I had the Osso Buco pork shank with mashed potatoes and carrots. It was fantastic with a wonderful rich, rustic sauce. Combined with a great Cab and I found my self eating the whole thing... More

Have been travelling to Amarillo for years & this is always my first choice for dinner. This time I tried the filet, which was excellent. Have also had confetti spaghetti, spicy marinara, seafood cioppino and steak Diane and all were top notch. Service was excellent and prices are reasonable.
