Midscale italian chain -- great food

Food, great! Atmosphere, informal and rather noisy. All the standard Italian classics: chicken parmesan, lasagna, frutti di mare, all good. My favorite is the penne rustica. Good salads and antipasti.

We celebrated our Easter weekend here and it never disappoints. The food is consistent and the service is great. We always have a different server and they are all really good. The management must be sure to hire good people. If you are not familiar with Macaroni Grill, then give this one a try.

We stopped by today for lunch and asked to be seated at a booth in the bar. My husband and I ordered appetizers, mac and cheese bites and goat cheese peppers. Both were good, although the mac and cheese bites were my favorite. We were enjoying our appetizers and some chianti when two women with a small child and a... More

Lovely atmosphere and service. Food though metza metz. Just edible yet pricey for food that was just meh. I normally don't like chains and should have known better. Despite telling the waitress that it was my birthday but that I didn't want any singing, nothing was offered. Once was enough.

Were recommended Romanos by our hotel receptionist. Great choice and much better value than the Mall restaurants opposite. Staff were all really friendly & attentive. Lots of locals eating there which is always the best recommendation of all. Large portions well served.

This was our second visit to Romano's Macaroni Grill in Burlington. We orders two entrée dishes from the specialty menu, with wine. The focaccia bread was served warm, and our server was very attentive and had excellent knowledge of the menu items to advise us on our selection. Our food was well prepared and we were not rushed during our... More

Ive always loved going to Macaroni Grill. The server was excellent, which was the only good thing. The calamari was okay, very small portion. And the food was bad, my bf had a chicken Florentine salad which was awful taste combination. My mozzarella and pesto Panini sandwich was awful, no flavor and I was disappointed. What a waste of my... More

The food was simply amazing! The flavors were ones that you crave the next day. Service was flawless. Girls at the bar went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Kudos to the managers of this place a very well run establishment. Hidden gem
