This was our second family experience at this restaurant, and we felt the same way both times. The food was about what one would expect from a chain restaurant, average tasting, but I felt it was over-priced for what we received. The first time we had a waiter who was awesome, he really took good care of us. The second... More

We eat here often - a good meeting place between two cities. Today's meal was a chicken salad with orzo - always a favorite with me -- fresh and tasty. Their usually delicious bread arrived tepid and the dipping oil was nothing special -- needs herbs not just ground pepper. Quite empty at lunch time today and poor service was... More

Had both dinner and lunch. Nothing special but the food is decent with efficient and friendly service. If you want to have decent wine, take your own (they charge a small corking fee).

Wow, this place used to be the "it" place for Italian food in the area. The service was poor...if that at best. Once seated the waiter thought he was a comedian, I wanted a food server...wrong profession he is in. Long waits before he would circle back to us. The place was about 60% capacity so there was no reason... More

Returned for lunch after our last visit 10 years ago. Just as remembered. Great Server, good food, and drinks. Will definitely be back sooner this time.

What a great surprise! This was the best and most authentic italian food that we have had in many years. All the dishes were great, from the appetizer to the gelato and taramisu deserts. The honour system bottle of Chianti was also a nice touch. Will definitely go back (many times).

We had the bread to start with dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar which was very tasty and we had the house red and house white wine... More

Stay away! My family of 8 went here om sat at 5:15 with reservations for a birthday celebration. This was a horrible experience! Our waitress was new so we cut her some slack only working 4 days and then given a party of 8 was way too much for her. So with that aside the night started with asking for... More

My wife and I have a condo in SW Florida that we use for 8 to 10 weeks per year. While visiting in January, we had dinner with another couple at the Macaroni Grill. Our friends made reservations for 7 pm and arrived there about 10 minutes early. Our friends checked in with the hostess and was informed that they... More
