First highly recommend having a reservation. We did and therefore got a nice table quickly. The atmosphere is rustic Italian in fact reminds us of the town of Verona Italy. Our waiter Ryan was very friendly and took good care of us. We started with...the Calamari then the Wedge salad. For main course I had the Scallop with Risotto. My spouse had the Swordfish. Both meals were delicious and we would definitely recommend. 👍👍 Parking is free in the lot outside. We will most definitely come back.More

Everyone in our party loved their food. Our server was exceptional! The ambience of the restaurant was great and not too loud.

The fillet wife had was fine. I had the ribeye it was awful. It was cooked properly, but there was way too much fat and gristle, even for a ribeye. Both were served floating in a pool of balsamic vinegar which completely destroyed the taste...of the steaks. Our service was excellent and the manager deducted $10 from our bills for the balsamic vinegar. the diced potatoes cooked to a crisp. Ambience was outstanding and the wine was excellent but a bit pricey. The waiter should have warned us about the balsamic vinegar.More

Intended to go to a different restaurant, (it was closed). Found Macaroni Joe's, around the corner! They need to be sure to get on Apple/Yahoo/Google search for Steak restaurants or Italian. It is a MUST EAT Place! We ate there on the way through Amarillo...two different days. Coleman was our bartender/waiter in the bar. Anytime passing thru, this will be our "go to"!More

Loved the Tuscan ambiance—like dining in an Italian villa. Great lunch selections, reasonably priced and good service. My fillet with grilled veggies was tender and flavorful. Hubby loved his shrimp and pasta in lemon cream sauce. Evelyn was a fantastic waitperson in suggesting items from...menu and finding me a Topo Chico. The bread pudding with bourbon pecan sauce was fantastic.More

We always search for restaurant options in TripAdvisor. In this occasion we wanted Italian food for dinner , in Amarillo, Tx, and found Macaroni Joes as one of the best options. We had dinner on March 11. The whole experience was amazing. Cheerful and very...kind staff. Special mention to Wendy. The filet, the rib-eye and scallops were really good. We also had an excellent bread pudding as desert. The place resembles a romantic Italian villa. Super !! We are eager to come back !More

Food and service were both great. Marking it down for a very haphazard approach to COVID. Menus haven’t been replaced with either a QR code or throw-away paper. Our used menus went right back into a stack for use with zero disinfecting. Even though there...is a sign on the door asking for mask use, patrons were rolling in the door and wandering around the restaurant with no masks on. Perhaps this is a Texas thing? We did not feel safe eating there which is sad because, as I said, it was very good otherwise.More

I have traveled to 74 countries and have eaten some of the most incredible meals imaginable. Visiting family in Amarillo, we went to Macaroni Joe's. When we walked in I was pleasantly surprised by such a beautiful interior. I felt like I was taken out...of a small city in Texas and transported to a restaurant in Italy! Ambiance and atmosphere perfected. On to the magnificent food. I will say that without question, one of THE best, most delicious, favorable, well-prepared meals I have ever experienced was at Macaroni Joe's. While my family of 7 had excellent meals, I had the pleasure of eating the Blackened Bayou Pasta with Shrimp. Everything on my plate was cooked to perfection! The pasta, the shrimp and especially the sauce. I would literally buy the sauce if it were bottled! I'm fortunate enough to get to Amarillo several times a year. I cannot wait to get back there to enjoy this meal again! I am serious when I say this meal would be in my top 5 meals from anywhere in the world! If you are anywhere near Amarillo, Texas, I cannot give a higher recommendation than this place!More

I’ve never been here and thought we would try it. I was pleasantly surprised. The service was awesome, the hostess and waitress were polite and friendly. The service was quick without being premade, and the food.... oh my gosh it was amazing... full of flavor...with every bite. We will definitely be back.More

Love the casual Italian atmosphere in the back room along with our favorite table. Chris was great with the wine and waiter efficient friendly and courteous. The menu has a nice variety of choices to choose from. We split a Caesar salad and the Steak...Dianne. Presentation was nice and portions just the right size for us. Food was delicious, definitely recommend. Recommend also making a reservation for dinner to avoid waiting to be seated. Plenty of free parking available. One of the local gems.More

We live in Amarillo and sometimes forget about this place. I picked it for my birthday dinner. We started with crab stuffed shrimp which was delicious. We were celebrating so I had the house prosecco and it was very nice. The salmon special with citrus...sauce was perfection. Mushroom risotto was some of the best I've ever had. Creme brulee dessert was over the top! Service here is always good. Nice, romantic atmosphere.More
