I don't know why I expect more from this franchise then they are able to produce. I'm disappointed every time I eat here. I ordered the steak salad. The meat was over cooked and tasted like sawdust. The pasta was over cooked without much flavor. All of it is overpriced for what you get. I'm done. Only positive was I... More

I like to cook Italian food; my family loves it! I'd like to think my cooking is better, but I guess I'm being a little biased! I usually go for lunch with my mom to Mac grill..She enjoys her nice large portion meal! For a chain restaurant; it's a good deal! Service is always excellent!

I went to this restaurant after a long day of convention business in Anaheim and sat at the bar. My bartender was fantastic. I wish I could remember his name but he's a young guy from Chicago and his grandfather was in the restaurant business. I ordered the shrimp with angel hair - yum, yum, yum!

Romans food is okay. I would say it is average. Their sauce is rather bland and they don't put enough on the pasta dishes. Good and courteous service.

We were celebrating my husbands birthday and I really wanted to take him somewhere he has always loved. He loves the chicken scallopini there and I aim to please, so off we went, 90 miles away from where we live. Unfortunately, this evening was a disaster! Although this was a Sunday evening, the restaurant wasn't terribly full so we thought... More

Very good food and our server Matt was great! They have a good Italian menu with a few items that are an Italian/American fusion. The wine was great and they are generous with the "honor system" pours. They are also accommodating for special requests. Good for families.

Terrible food! Lasagna was cold in the center, tasted worse than frozen from the supermarket. Mac n' cheese for the other person in my party had to be sent back, no hint of cheese. The Spaghetti (substitution) was so bland it could have been served in a hospital! I went with my family 2 years ago and it was just... More

My younger granddaughter loves to dip the very good bread in olive oil with a little vinegar. Other than that, most of the Italian dishes are just OK. Very good service. Lots of seating.
