Wait a Minute...????

This used to be one of my fave restaurants. I loved make your own pasta bowl. The 4 course dinners were WONDERFUL (bring them back!). But this weekend was awful. I know everyone can have a down day, but I got the feeling this was a new trend not a one time deal. The restaurant was empty on a... read more

Though this is a chain, at times it hits the spot. Clean, nice staff, and food was good. Very nice bartender who took good care of me. I will return here because of the food and the staff!

Traveling back to Tennessee through PA, we decided to stop for lunch, We saw a sign for Romano's Macaroni Grill...As far as I know, the basics for a good place to eat are: clean, good food, good service, fair prices. This place failed 3 out of 4 and even then, that's trying to be fair on their pricing. If the... More

Tried to order appetizers but all of our first and second choices were not longer available at the restaurant but still listed on menu, but we did enjoy the app. we did settle on. The mac and cheese bites and the goat cheese stuffed peppers. For my meal I... More

I've eaten here quite a few times since I live kind of close to it. I think I've gotten a different entree every time I visit and they have all been good! They also provide free bread and oil, which I enjoy a lot. The table tops also have sheets of paper on them and they provide crayons so you... More

Very nice family restaurant. We only had to wait 5 minutes to be seated on a Saturday night. The restaurant was full but we got prompt and attentive service. The food was delicious!

Since we enjoyed this place so much the last time, we chose to come back. The place was empty. Service was slow. It took forever to get our wine. We ordered a 2nd glass before we finished the 1st just to make sure it came while we were still eating. The waitress said there was a backup at the bar.... More

First time here and I very much enjoyed the ambience, maybe a little bit more light would be better but just a bit more. The fact that they have paper as table clothes is a good idea but the servers should keep in mind to make sure that they don't write their name right where a child is sitting. She... More

Yes I know--it's a chain. But we had a great night out there. Had a table by the kitchen--I liked to open kitchen concept. The house wine didn't care for. The bread and olive oil were very good I chose the rusta peneca. Great blend of pasta cheese shrimp and sausage. Delicious Service was prompt and friendly
