Although not know for gluten free options, they do have a gluten free penne so stop in! There was a 40 minutes wait, but the bar was open so we are there. Service was terrific and the bar tender was very knowledgeable about the food content. The salads were fresh and the entrées were tasty. The... read more

My husband and I really enjoy Macaroni Grill for the relaxed & friendly ambiance and good food. We go there fairly regularly for Sunday lunch. We like to sit up at the bar, watch a little sports on their TVs, and talk to Josie, one of their bartenders. She's super friendly and very competent. Of course, we also enjoy the... More

Been here twice for their Lunch Special Mon-Thurs. Wonderful upscale ambience w/Excellent Service at reasonable prices. For a limited selection lunch try their combo special $13-$14. The Panini Sandwich w/Parmesan Fries or Penne Pasta w/Minestrone Soup all served with delicious hot bread ~ everything was excellent & flavorful. Save room for dessert probably the best Tiramisu I've had w/great coffee,... More

Restaurant was not busy. Both of us ordered a Caesar salad and chicken parmesan with angle hair pasta. Salad took over a half hour and arrived 1 minute before the main course. Our waitress (we ate at the bar) took the food back so we could finish our salad. Not much cheese on it nor dressing. Entrée came back a... More

I was so impressed with this spot inside of Ala Moana shopping Ctr., it gets five well-earned stars. My friend and I sat at the bar because most of the tables were taken, and within 20 minutes we had our entrees. The food itself was great- the chicken parm was juicy and not greasy at all, and the meatball dish... More

I've been to the Romano Macaroni Grill restaurant on the Big Island but you cannot beat the service at the Ala Moana location, I love Italian food but we come back again and again because of the service !

Enjoyed their caesar salad and grilled mahi mahi. Always love their bread. Better prices than other similar options at Ala Moana.

Excellent food, great service and nice location, the only downside is that we had to wait for a table everytime we got there but the food was worth the wait. I recommend the chicken florentine salad

Very nice Italian choices like mama's trio (spaghetti, cannelloni, and lasagna) as well as chicken, chicken parmigiana and mushroom ravioli. The bread is extraordinary and we had a nice appetiser with soup and salad. Desserts were varied, with the tiramisu heading the favorites list.
