Good but overpriced

The food was the usual Romano's but the price was extremely high. We enjoyed our meal but probably wouldn't visit again because of the ridiculous prices.

I was really surprised at how good the food was here. It was a bit loud for my taste and very busy even at 7:30 at night.

Very pricey and not very good. I have had better pasta at home! I had the fettuccine and it had no flavor :( It was a disappointment. The bread was okay but the oil that you dip the bread in was disgusting! We usually avoid chain restaurants on vacation and we definitely should have this time. I had cheesecake at... More

We were staying at the hilton in waikola village and thought that the macaroni grill would be a good option to try; boy was I wrong. You are much better off getting food at the island market, which is an abc store next door. Let me first say that I've enjoyed many meals at macaroni grills across the U.S. It... More

I brought my family to Roman's Macaroni Grill last night because I wanted an easy menu for my children to choose from after a couple nights of seafood, luau's, etc. We were seated fairly quickly but it took about 45 minutes for our food to arrive. Our server, Julie, was inattentive at best, dismissive at worst. After waiting about 30... More

This is also very good but is always very busy so is good to come early if you wanna get seated at a good time, if there's a birthday in your party the servers will sing happy birthday in Italian is really cool, the lobster ravioli is very very good. MOLTO BENE!!!

This restaurant never disappoints, whatever the city. The food and service were great. It didn't hurt that it was within walking distance from my hotel.

They survive simply as there are limited restaurants in Waikoloa Resort. Have been there twice before and weren't impressed then either. Server "Megan" was robot. Never smiled and simply asked and answered questions. Seemed to think we should be impressed she wrote her name in crayon upside down on the paper table cloth...wow! My wife ordered a spinach salad.

Good family type restaurant and very busy. There were two of us and we enjoyed sitting outside. Service was quick and friendly and our food was hot and delicious. They seemed very busy as tables inside were left uncleared yet there were some empty tables. Outside on the patio was the best place to be as it wasn't crowded at... More

Service was fast and friendly. Food was average for the adult meals but the kids meals were great with good quality ingredients and were fresh made.
