Description: Inspired by Italian trattoria cuisine, culture, and conversation, Romano's Macaroni Grill has been proudly serving unforgettable meals that leave a lasting impression to our deserving guests since 1988 - with knowledge, care and Italian charisma infused in everything we do. At Romano's Macaroni Grill, we know that for our guests any night out is a big night out - and it is our responsibility and privilege to treat it as such. That's why we start every meal off right: With a bottle of wine at the center of the table, while you explore our menu of expertly handcrafted rustic dishes and Italian classics. Warm distinctive touches, like our signature honor system wine and bustling open kitchen, create a memorable, sensory experience that you'll remember long after you leave the table.

The service was great and everything was just what I would expect until the good arrived. Everyone agreed that it tasted bland. There are so many other great restaurants. Don't waste your money here.

Really large portions, great deal for breakfast too. Large variety for everyone.
Very casual environment, I recommend.

Well over priced for what you get. I know I can make better. Service was mediocre and food quality was as well. Wife and I were far from impressed. Wasn't busy and service was slow. Kids didn't care for the food as well and my kids usual year all Mac N Cheese.

Our last trip to Waikoloa involved all the kids and grandkids. One night we were all going to eat together, didn't feel like cooking, but didn't want to haul the whole gang into a restaurant.

Felt like Italian, so despite some of the recent reviews we thought we'd try Macaroni Grill. Phoned in a great big order and asked that it be ready for pickup at 7:15. The gal who took our order was friendly, when we arrived the hostess knew about the order, went back to the kitchen and brought everything out within a couple of minutes. For the size of the order the bill was more than reasonable.

When we got back to the house we found the order was correct, the portion sizes were plentiful and by all accounts the food, while not the best meal in history, was quite acceptable. All in all a success. Based on our experience will likely try a sit down meal next time we're there.

Whenever we are on the Big Island we make a point to have lunch at here. The service is excellent and the food is terrific. Plenty of parking nearby. We will be back again and again.
