Atmosphere Italian restaurant with bar, good location and parking. Complete with interesting warm cozy atmosphere. Menu is mostly pasta dishes with variations of seafood, meatballs, and very tasty. Our waitress kept us busy with fresh baked bread that we dipped in olive oil and spices while we waited for our meal. Food portions are large, you get more than you... More

This is Italian food that is worth your time, money and taste buds! The restaurant has slowly changed over the years from an Italian Restaurant with traditional dishes to Italian dishes that may never have been in Italy, but could have been, maybe. I have never had a bad dish of pasta, or a salad, or a glass of wine... More

We went at 5:00pm on a Friday so there were very few people there. That said, we waited a bit to be seated. Once we were, we had a good server in Lisa. She kept us happy with bread and drinks while waiting for our dinner. Portions are large. This is not a place to go if you are watching... More

We visited at lunch. My 7 minute lunch was ready after about 30 minutes and it wasn't free as promised. The grilled cheese sandwich was served cold and my fries were served separate from the sandwich. The server spilled a soda on my friends lap. We had a horrible experience. I will probably not return to this location.

The service was horrible. Our waiter came and put pepper in the olive oil without asking if we liked pepper in our olive oil. He left before I could ask for my drink! We had to wait forever for our food! I liked the food, though. I really want the service improved!

I visited this location on a Sunday with my niece and sister-in-law. I consider it extremely child friendly because they have paper down over the table and give kids crayons to color while they wait. Ingenious! It was not my first time to a Romano's Macaroni Grill but this was my first time at this location. The staff was really... More

Stopped in here with the family after a soccer match. Overall, I thought everything was good. The food was great all around, I got the Lasagna, very good, and my wife got the pork chop, which was awesome! Kids enjoyed there meals as well. The only downfall was service was not the greatest! Not attentive at all. Could have just... More

This was my first visit to Ramano's Macaroni Grill in many years. Today I ordered the Shrimp Portofino, which included spinach, mushrooms, and pine nuts with a hint of lemon. The food arrived hot, and the ingredients were fresh and light. The service was prompt, and I was pleasantly pleased with my lunch. It was my sister and niece's first... More

Maybe I'm a bit of a food snob, but salt is not the way to my palate. The good food stopped at the Calamari we had as an appetizer . The Veal Valdostana was very salty and a conglomeration of stuff that was very poorly prepared and not edible . The Penne Rustica was also very salty and very average... More
