Waitress was very friendly, talkative and responsive. Interesting concept with paper table top that you can write on (with crayons provided) Pasta was OK, nothing special. Good place for families, at price is reasonable with a fairly wide range of choices. Good place to go at the Shopping mall (ala moana center), if you want to have a meal, other... More

Every time we come to visit Hawaii we always have lobster ravioli at Romano's with a glass of chianti. I would recommend coming here as the food is good and just love the freshly baked bread out of oven with the olive oil and balsamic as it has always been good.

Great italian food with good service. Accidentally stumbled across this restaurant whilst shopping. Located at Alomoana shopping centre top level with a cluster of other restaurants. Family friendly reasonably priced.

This place is fantastic! The atmosphere, customer service and food is awesome. A must for couples or friends and family, but not young kids. It would be a nice gathering place for a birthday celebration or for a romantic dinner or friends getting together. The food is so delicious. I would recommend the seafood pasta.

My first visit to a Romano's. Ate too much. Food = good. Service = double good. Free Bread rolls = good god! Not being able to move after because there was too much good = bad. I'll wear sweat pants next time.

First time diner at Macaroni Grill here at Ala Moana Shopping Center. My wife had gone before and mentioned the food quality was a bit less than desirable. We had a gift card. We were greeted by a server named Jerry, who seated and served us. Jerry brought water and bread and a kid's water for our baby. Jerry wrote... More

Good food, good service and fun times Had the create your own pasta and it was overall good. The arrabiata sauce could've been more spicy. Bread and drinks very good too Miss the Vancouver location but nice to see this in Honolulu!
