I was in Amarillo for a Bridge tournament. Somebody local recommended Macaroni Joes. Three of us went and had three very different dished: steak Diane, Spicy marinara on pasta and ahi tuna salad. All were so good that we returned the next evening and ere not disappointed. The prices are quite reasonable for good quality food.

First off I must say that I picked Macaroni Joes because of the wonderful reviews here in Tripadvisor. The atmosphere is as everyone describes, simply beautiful and nicely done. This was the place that I had picked out to propose to my girlfriend. Our waiter, forgot his name, was wonderful. We started with the Fried Calamari as suggested by the... More

Loved the feel of a small Italian village. The food was delicious and well prepared. The only warning:if you like white wine by the glass, be sure that it isn't older than 2012 (waiter brought out one from 2006--yuk!

They may have 450 selections of wine however, they think a lot about it, prices were VERY high. The walnut strawberry salad with chicken was dry, the strawberries were not sweat and there were no walnuts. We asked about the walnuts and the waiter brought us some in a small cup, looked like the bottom of the can. He told... More

We were passing through Amarillo and used Trip advisor as our source.... Loved it! Good wedge salad and pasta dishes. Our server, Mario, was very attentive. I recommend this restaurant.

Went for lunch when in the area to see friends. Food was good, prices were reasonable. Server apologized for lunch taking too long and gave a free desert to each couple as a result, will go back the next time in Amatillo.
