Quaint Italian restaurant

Small restaurant tucked in the back of a building. Well known by locals for buying soup by the gallon. We always buy our holiday meal soup here. The menu is extensive and primarily Italian. A number of interesting dishes - I recently had sausage and canelinni beans with pasta in olive oil and... read more

If your looking for great service, great Italian dishes, and above all great prices, then you want to to go here, it's not a big seating area like most, if you get there early your in great shape, if you have to wait an hr you'll be upset, but I can assure you will be back because it's that good

Small cozy restaurant located in a hard to find location behind a building. Waiting area to get a seat is really crowded, once seated it's comfy and roomy. Great service and reasonable prices. Do not miss the chicken soup, it's very good, but ask for it to be heated a bit before serving. Veal parm and ziti was just ok.... More

My family and I love Macera's for the quirky atmosphere, friendly servers and delicious food. However, tonight we left with 3/4 of my meal and 1/4 of my husbands meal in a "to go" box on the table. We drove 15 miles home and immediately discovered that we left the bag on the table. I immediately called and asked if... More

I have had take out and dining service at Macera's and both are excellent. They decorate the dining room according to season and it is tacky, yet welcoming! I've had the eggplant parm many times and it's amazing. We have had the chicken for 2 to go many times and it's an excellent value.

Every Thanksgiving and Christmas we get a couple gallons of the chicken escarole soup for our holiday dinner. It tastes so much like my mom used to make. They also have a nice little dining room with great italian food.

This is a charming little whole in the wall that has great food and good service. The food is consistent and delicious - outmatched only by the great soups. It's a tiny place, teeming with (tacky) holiday decor at all times of the year, but it has a sentimental quaintness and charm. The music occasionally can be a bit loud... More
