Good Italian Food

Service was average. Food was good. I can't remember what I had but the most of the food was eaten. I might go back.

I received a small gift card to The Macaroni Grill and I let it sit on my shelf not wanting to use it due to past mediocre meals I had there. Not to waste the gift card, I agreed to give it one more try. We sat in the bar area in a booth and waited and waited some more... More

Will up my rating if romanos improve the quality. Used to be great but now a days the quality has been reduced. Their bread is still the best but the pasta we had was so bland and hardly had any veggies though it was supposed to. We will check back with them a year or so later to see if... More

The signs were there: When a family restaurant's parking lot is nearly empty at 6:30 on a warm Saturday night in New England, something is not right inside. Our group of friends, 13 in all, arrived on time for our semi-annual reunion at, what had been, one of our favorite restaurants. The Macaroni Grill was a convenient spot for people... More

I used to like this place and ignored the mediocre ratings chalking them up to different tastes. Took my wife there tonight and the food was very disappointing. One thing you expect from an Italian restaurant is good pasta but the capellini was seriously mushy, inedible. The rest of the dinner was over salted. Salad was fine for me. My... More

We went for lunch. $7. specials in 7 minutes. The wait person we had did not know items on the menu, brought olive oil but no bread, and brought the meal way past the seven minutes. We won't go back.

I used to love MG but not any longer. Food is mediocre at best. We still go once in a while for it's convenience and space :)

I've actually never eaten at Romano's Macaroni Grill before but I received a great email deal for lunch. The special was 2 lunches for $10.00 from their Romano's kitchen counter menu. It's a different approached to a seated lunch. You arrive, look at the menu, order and pay then sit. When the food is ready, it's brought out to your... More

Haven't been here in a while and unlikely we'll go back (unless to check out the salads). The eggplant was nicely cooked but only two small slices and pasta that was so overcooked in a watery tasteless sauce that it fell apart on my fork and tasted like canned spaghetti-O's. The price has doubled and quality has been halved. They... More
