I liked the pasta options and my shrimp with mushrooms and spinach was tasty, but I'd have preferred more spinach and less sauce. The olive oil and warm foccacia bread were good; the waitress friendly and helpful in the ordering process. My partner liked the chicken with vegetables pasta dish, too. Italian dressing on the house salad was freshly made,... More

We're never disappointed. The menu is upscale with very good value compared with the other upper-end choices available in Amarillo. Food and service is excellent. Try the double-bone pork chops with Mescal glaze or the cedar plank salmon.

When we travel between Colorado Springs and DFW area, we have found stopping at Macaroni Joes to be something special that we enjoy. The ambiance with respect to lighting is just right, as is the background music as well as the wall decor which makes you feel as though you're sitting in a courtyard in Tuscany. We've had many of...

The wine list was beyond expectations! It is better than most restaurants in Texas, never mind the fact that you are in Amarillo, not Dallas, Houston, Austin or San Antonio. The food was delicious too however it was a late, midweek meal on a quiet night and we were so over the moon with the wine list that the food... More

Don't you enjoy entering a restaurant and loosing all sense of what city you're in? That describes Macaroni Joes. It is tastefully decorated like Italy inside. The food is exceptional and they offer a nice wine selection. Pricing is reasonable $$$. Extremely close to I-40 and good service. Try Macaroni Joes, you'll be glad you did!

Dinner was so good. Went back for lunch before leaving town the next day. Everything on our plates was cooked to perfection. Also great weekday wine deals.

Great little place with a wonderful ambiance and friendly, helpful waitstaff and wine sommelier. The food was very good and we hit half price wine night, so splurged on a bottle of Brunello. Very impressive wine cellar.

The food, atmosphere and service were great. The place is decorated like you're sitting out side, with lots of greenery and flowers. A great place for a romantic meal or to take friends for an enjoyable meal.
