Good food but SLOW

The food here is always good. I always have the eggplant parmesan and as always, it was delicious. However, on our last visit the service was ok but there was a LONG wait for the food. We suspected there must be a lack of kitchen staff or something because the restaurant wasn't even as crowded... read more

The Romano’s Macaroni Grill Restaurant at the Ala Moana shopping mall in Honolulu, Hawaii is obviously, by its name, an Italian place. And as such they have Italian cuisine down to perfection. We enjoyed great service. Our server fussed over us – pampering us to assure that we were entitled to special service and great Italian food. She was outgoing... More

We went to the ala moana center and ate here on the 4th floor. They bring you warm bread and dipping sauce to start. I asked the waitress between a few different choices . Her recommendation was spot on we had the lobster ravioli with fried mozzarella. My wife does not normally like mozzarella but she thought it was great.... More

Despite the name, this restaurant is not about Macaroni. It is a place where Italy comes to you in the food that is served. Do not miss the pan-seared veal chop. It is not only tender, but flavorful. I was tempted to order another helping, but I would not be able to finish a second very large chop. The Chicken... More

I come to this restaurant every year to have the Lobster Ravioli, I just think that it's worth it just to have this meal. I really love Italian food and this is a reasonably priced restaurant and yes sometimes the service is a little slow but worth it.

Rarely do I see the sort of attentiveness in wait staff that I saw tonight. For Jessie, nothing was too much and he took excellent care of my girlfriend and I. He even went so far as to sing in Italian for us at the end of the meal with a beautiful voice. The food was excellent too with free... More

Great staff, mushroom starter was to die for as well as the chicken under a brick main. A fast efficient service and not hugely expensive. Best place we have eaten since our 7 night stay, now on our 4th day. Peroni draft beer was a great pint too so we had a few of them. Totally recommended diner in what... More

This restaurant was well set and all of the main meals served were delicious. The service was great and I am still full at dinner time. Highly recommended and would love to visit again before leaving waikiki. Excellent.

If you like Italian food, this is one of the best places that I have been to. The atmosphere is lovely and it's a great place for a romantic dinner celebration. If your lucky to go when one of the waitresses sings, she had a beautiful voice and sings opera. I guess you can request for her to sing. The... More
