Consistently good food, good prices...service could improve.

Every time I visit Macarroni Grill I can rely on the quality of the food and this one lived up to that expectation. The service wasn't that great. I don't know. They were somewhat distracted despite the fact that there were not many people in the restaurant. Maybe they are used to having more... read more

Realy nice decoration. The food was great. Real italian taste. The pasta was great and chicken was extra good. Prices are moderate. A family of 2 adults and 1 child can eat at only 40 dollars including tips.

They were somewhat distracted despite the fact that there were not many people in the restaurant. Maybe they are used to having more people and were somewhat depressed.

We like to come here one night while on vacation to get some good pasta. Casual atmosphere and good choice of food. This time service was a little rushed. Got our salad after our main course and waiter made it sound like that was the right way to do it. Not a big deal. Surprised with the number of empty... More

I cook a lot at home, but I also enjoy to taste other flavors, and learn new recipes. This restaurant had never set me down. The tomatoe sauce tastes like mine. It is chuncky, perfectly seasoned. I ordered the eggplant parmeggiana, and one of my kids ordered the steak parmeggiana. The cheese was melting down perfectly. Only the mac n... More

The wine was fab and the kids loved being able to draw on the table cloths but the adult meals really were not great. Shame as the staff were lovely as was the ambiance.

First I must say I am a big Macaroni Grill fan and eat there frequently in Tampa but this unit was a big disappointment. Our 7:15 reservation was on time and we were seated right away. There were four of us and we always order a couple of bottles of wine with our meals and of course our entrees. This... More

i ate here and was very pleasantly surprised by how good the food and service was. I had pork chops and the garlic jus reduction and glaze raised the chops well above ordinary. It's was the most enjoyable meal I've eaten for a while. Big decent portion too. Service was excellent. Server could not do enough for us. Will definitely,return... More

If you like Italian food, then you are sure to love Romano's. Service was excellent and the food was better. Not to mention the Honour system that they employ with wine purchases. This was one of the better restaurants that we had dinner at during our vacation.

I went with my father and his boss and everyone of us ordered the 3 course meal (fried cheese, cesar salad and a main course). My pasta dish was really great and the homemade bread with the olive oil was amazing. My dad ordered a vodka sause raviolis that were great too. Judging the price I thought the food was... More

This was our first time at a Macaroni Grill and we enjoyed it. I had the spaghetti and meatballs. I think it was probably the best spaghetti and meatballs I have ever had. Great flavor and a big portion with lots of meatballs. My wife had a salad with chicken. They had no problem not putting in a few items... More
