I love this place and every time I come to Reno I want to eat here. This time the service was slow and our server only had 2 tables and the food was just ok. I was on a Tuesday and it was a slow night for business so I would expect the service to be better. I'm a good... More

First time for me, my guest had been many times. The indoor atmosphere is reminiscent of Italian patio dining. I had eggplant parmigiana and the two large slices of eggplant battered and fried were excellent. Came with angel hair pasta that was cooked just fine but needed more sauce. Other guest ordered a pizza that had plenty of cheese in... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way back from Carson City and liked it. We're glad we came by for their lunch specials.

Macaroni Grill is good considering it is a chain Italian restaurant. Bread comes out first, very good. We shared lasagna and a chicken entree. Portions were large enough to comfortably share, and both were very good. Service was attentive and friendly and prices reasonable. Restaurant was clean and appealing. I would definitely return when in the Reno area.

We went here tonight for Pasta Milano. It wasn't on the menu any more so we chose from a nice selection. I had lasagna and my husband had the mama's trio. I added a garden salad and he added a Caesar salad. We recall a time when the line to be seated was an hour wait so it was sad... More

They were very slow in getting our drinks refilled.The food quality has gone down... More

We ordered the Create Your Own Pasta option. One was garlic olive oil, with mushroom, roasted garlic and spinach, the other was garlic olive oil, with chicken, meatballs, spinach, and roasted red peppers. Both looked better than they tasted. Both pastas were over cooked. I also ordered a glass of Banfi wine for $11.50 (a little expensive). The server was... More

Very poor food quality only matched by lousy costumer service. The bread was very salty and low quality. The pizza I ordered was not completely cooked and made made with the same salty bread we had prior to the meal. The waitress asked me how I liked the pizza, I told her that it wasn't that great, at which she... More

We ate here for lunch at around 2:30 pm. The lunch specials were still being offered. I ordered the Lunch Promo which consisted of an appetizer, salad, and main course. The meal was worth more than $10 and the entrée was almost full size. We also ordered 3 glasses of house wine and a entrée of Create Your Own Pasta.... More
