We've been to Macaronis many times, but over the last couple of years it's not been great. Food has been cold, or undercooked or so over seasoned that you can't eat it. Shame really as its in a good location, the bar is lovely and the house red superb.

Dinner no 1 - Eli looked after us really well, he was really good at his job and made us feel very welcome. We had meatballs with Bolognese sauce (it was huge) and a mushroom ravioli that was absolutely superb. The bread and oil are a nice touch and an excellent start to the meal. We left with very full...

Had a superb family meal the first night of our holiday in Orlando. We had previously eaten here back in 2014 & really enjoyed it so decided to visit again on our first night this year just to play safe. Great staff, lovely surroundings and good value for money for the portion sizes, we will be back on our next... More

It was bad at the start. We decided to go here for dinner and the restaurant wasn't crowded since it was after the Labor Day weekend. When we were seated we noticed that the construction paper they use to cover the table was damp. After sitting there my husband noticed little ants on the table. When I lifted the paper... More

Just had dinner at Macaroni Grill tonight. The food was amazing. Service was fantastic. I'm from NYC, a foodie and my father is a chef. To say that I have high expectations is an understatement. I have been scoffing at the food I've eaten all week while in Orlando. My hubby insisted that I try Macaroni Grill and I almost... More

This Romano's Macaroni Grill is located at 12148 Apopka Vineland Road and is next to a Chili's Restaurant and several others on the same side of the road. Macaroni Grill has excellent Italian food and a large variety of pasta... More

I don't have a Macaroni Grill close to home so I jumped at a chance to go while visiting Disney. This location was pretty dead for lunch but I've been there for dinner over the years when there was a line out the door. I really like the nice selection of authentic Italian choices. Today I had salmon with some... More

We've been to this restaurant location twice before and it was great. So it was an easy choice to return this time around. However, this time around felt like we were in the middle of a child's birthday party (we were not). The servers were going around making balloon animals for the kids, presumably as a distraction during their wait... More
