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.

“Great value, especially the kids meals”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

When the entire Kohala coast is expensive when it comes to food, it was nice to get a couple of kids meals to go and eat in the room after a long day of snorkelling and swimming. Beats the cost and food of room service.

“Most reasonable around”
Reviewed April 6, 2014

Macaroni Grill typically has pretty good food, this one did as well. Prices were a little inflated, but, that makes sense due to the location in Hawaii. This is probably the most reasonably priced meal we had. It was pretty good. The service was very good. Overall, a nice dinner.

“Very average Macaroni Grill”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

Not the greatest dining experience and they love their garlic a little too much. Probably will not return when we go back to the big island.

“Not our Favourite”
Reviewed April 5, 2014

During a recent holiday in Waikoloa we decided to try Macaroni largely because it was close to our condo complex. The menu looked interesting and seemed to have something for everyone. We were all particularly interested in the pasta dishes as we were ready for something other than the wonderful fish that we were eating nightly! Unfortunately, while the descriptions made them sound scrumptious, they were all rather bland and the pasta certainly did not taste home-made - which we would expect given the prices. There were 3 of us at this meal and they only thing we all liked was the macaroni and cheese bites appetizer. Service as too fast, our entrees arrived just minutes after our appetizers and it made it seem as if all the food was pre-prepared and heated quickly. Though the restaurant was not that busy, we felt rushed. We would not return to this restaurant as there are many other options in the area that are much better.

“Not like at home”
Reviewed April 3, 2014

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.
