Not impressed with the same processed frozen reheated food. Also thought there would be more dishes using macaroni but they only had one and that wasn't so great. Sure would be nice if Tucson would stop having these franchised restaurants and start having restaurants that prepare the food fresh daily with fresh products not frozen, previously cooked, etc.

As always a fresh load of bread was brought to the table and two bread plates dressed with a fine olive oil, oregano, and basil for dipping. We broke bread and dipped... More

We went here and ordered the fried macaroni and cheese. They were delicious except I had an allergic reaction just a few minutes after. The manager said I was having a panic attack. I told my husband to please call 911. I was throwing up in the bathroom, feeling so weak, heart pounding, feeling like I couldn't breathe. They brought... More

I'd dined at a Romano's Macaroni Grill years ago, thogh not this one in the review, and did not remember if I liked it or not so I was not ''all-in" when my wife suggested we try this establishment for lunch as we had the grand-kids with us. The staff and service was exemplary and they went above the norm... More

The restaurant has excellent Italian cuisine. You can order at the grille or have a table/booth in the main restaurant and receive waiter service. The menu has many selections to choose from. They also have lunch express specials which makes for a quick lunch for the working clientele. The selections are nicely seasoned and tasty, Service is prompt and courteous.... More

Located two blocks from Olive Garden, which is always packed, while this restaurant is never full. Now I know why. My girlfriend and I went for dinner which was a fine experience. Very friendly waiter, great service, food was ok. Not as good as Olive Garden, but not bad terrible. A week later we went for coffee and dessert and... More

My wife and I had the pleasure of doing lunch, and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food, and the friendly and efficient service. I have not visited this restaurant in many years, but I would definitely include it in my Italian restaurant rotation. The menu is comprehensive and the dishes we enjoyed were much better than...

Part of a national chain. Similar to Olive Garden, but I like Romano's food a lot better. Have several lunch specials. Had the Carmela's Chicken -- roasted chicken, rigatoni, caramelized onions, mushrooms and creamy marsala sauce. It was very tasty especially the marsala sauce. Their rosemary bread is also very good. Got the Lemon Cake to go.

Thank Wesley C
