Excellent food and atmosphere for meeting old friends!

Between the holidays, we were able to get a late lunch with folks near where we were visiting. We were able to select our own booth near the open-wall kitchen, so we could smell our meals being prepared by men singing in Italian! The good selection of wines, the cocktails, salads, pasta, seafood... read more

I would not call Romano's a "fine dining" experience, but a place to have a great meal at a reasonable price in a comfortable atmosphere. They emphasize Italian fare but have many other offerings on the menu. Their happy hour is a great value.

We come here often and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. They have very good flavors on all their entries and, like most, we have out favorites and they never disappoint.

We like Macaroni Grill over other major Italian food chains based on two things: atmosphere and food. Food foremost. they have a lot of light choices that aren't bogged down with heavy cheese/sauce combos (also they have that too if that's what you are into). The atmosphere is relaxing and elegant at the same time. love the Italian contemporary music... More

I have been to this restaurant only twice. I found it very noisy and the food heavy and greasy. Perhaps the salads may be a better choice. I've never tried one.

We had a group of nine and had a good time. I would say the food was pretty good overall everyone was happy with it. Especially good reviews of the salmon. However, they served our wine in the same tumbler glasses they served our water in. Our waitress had little personality and the food took way too long. All in... More

The food was ok- nothing special. The place was way to dark but not in a cozy way. I think candles would be appropriate if they are going to keep it so dark. The booths all lined the walls with uncomfortable tables all in the middle. The service was really weird. Our server was nice but spoke so fast we... More

we go there periodically, mostly as couple, sometimes with family. bread and olive oil are a great touch. appetizers are good, food sometimes a bit salty if you are conscious of sodium intake. varied menu but sparse dessert choice. don't sit near the front on kitchen side! the noise is deafening but there are plenty of quieter seats. their background...
