Went here with family. Very reasonable prices - 10-20 $ entrees and excellent service. I believe the owner was our waiter, and he was very friendly and accommodating.

This is the perfect out of the way locals only spot for authentic Italian food! Marco and Zeke really do "know everybody by name". You can relax and enjoy the view or slide into a corner table and quietly people watch over a made to order pasta dish. We go at least once a week!

Nice, small place. Had a good appetizer round. The main course was just so so. But they made up for it with the desert. Tiramisu was very nice.

While visiting our daughter at TCU, we were looking for a restaurant near campus. I searched trip advisor and this made it through my screening. I realized when I made reservation I would be going to an Italian restaurant in a strip mall in Texas. When we arrived very impressed with service and menu. You don't need to order off... More

Well, its always nice to go to a restaurant and be pleasantly surprised as I unfortunately usually expect the worst. I live in FT Worth on business at the Marriott residence inn in the cultural district and eat out an average of 3 nights a week. I googled best Italian in FT worth and started to roll down the lengthly... More

The place looks very much like an authentic Italian restaurant. It's pleasant and quiet. The food was tasty, very similar to what I had in Italy in some places. We definitely will go back there.

Our son lives near Macaluso's, but he had never been there before, so he wanted to try it for his birthday. It's a great neighborhood restaurant! We went on a Sunday night, so it wasn't too crowded. The service was slightly lacking, only in that when asked for a wine recommendation (all of us had selected seafood as our respective... More

We dined at Macaluso's while visiting Fort Worth. Local establishments are always our preference, and we were the only patrons the entire staff didn't know by name! The food was delightful, with a good variety to choose from. If you are looking for nice, quiet and local, this is the place for you!

This area of Forest Park avenue for years was known as an upper class neighborhood with exclusive specialty restaurants like Ruffinos and City Park Cafe. Sadly things have gone about like the whole country; downhill. The disappointment with Macaluso starts right when you pull off the street and see their cheap yellow sign that looks like one of the owners... More

This is the second local Italian food restaurant I have visited in the last month or so based solely on the four and five star reviews. Once again, I left being less than impressed. The shrimp scampi appetizer featured four extra large specimens that were cooked correctly. Sadly, they arrived lukewarm and atop a large plate of less than delicious... More
