Good prices and food. Odd atmosphere.

We love their Capellini Pomodoro (tomato, basil & roasted garlic) dish and get it every time. We split a garden salad and love the fresh bread. While not fancy it is good and always consistent; it is a nice design and our service is always good. A favorite standby!

Typical Macaroni Grill and it is definitely family friendly. Nice selection of food and wine and good service, great combo. Tough to find parking at dinner time.

We enjoyed a night out at Romano's to have a "light" Italian dinner. If you've been to one Romano's, you've probably been to them all; at least in Hawaii the dinner was super casual. Service was good and the food was predictable - but good. I would go again if I were in the Waikoloa beach resort area; much less... More

I stopped at the restaurant for a basic, simple meal and was not disappointed (a salad followed by their "brick chicken"). More than met my expectations; I wouldn't hesitate to return. The only glitch was when I was seated they first tried to place me at the bar and then at an undesirable table -- I think because I was... More

I ordered a pizza thinking it would've at least partially been made in house. Instead, I received a Totino's like oven or microwave pizza that was so greasy I couldn't even soak off enough grease with the napkins to bring myself to eat it.

We went here the other week and were somewhat disappointed. It was OK but nothing special. I got the mushroom ravioli and I think I got about 6 or 7 pieces of ravioli with some sauce. They were decent sized pieces of pasta but it wasn't enough to fill me up. The service was good as is nearly all service... More

Good food and attentive service from Pua. One of the few reasonable price restaurants open for breakfast in Waikoloa.

Let me admit I am not of fan of Macaroni Grill under normal circumstances. My fiancé and I were staying at the Hilton Waikoloa and walked up to the shopping center to get groceries in the morning where the restaurant is located. After deciding to get breakfast instead, we went to the Macaroni Grill. To my surprise my Eggs Benedict... More
