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 best bread ive ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2010

Decent choice on the menu, reasonable prices considering everything is more expensive in Hawaii, good food quality and friendly staff, but the ciabatta bread they bring you before your meal is amazingly good, i asked for a second and the best thing is its free!
We went twice, be prepared for a short wait with the usual pager system, but its well worth it.

If you cannot afford fine dining every night this is a great choice. The food was excellent and the service first class. Well worth a visit.

“Very Good Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2010

We had three adults and three teenagers eat here during a stay at the nearby Hilton. The service was great. The meal started with complementary bread and olive oil. We had a variety of meals and all the meals where of a good size and delicious. I would recommend this place for a meal.

“Just Bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2010

Everything came out drowning in oil and cheese. There is only one healthy low fat option on the menu (plain salmon). The service was slow and snobby. The wait was long. The fact that this restaurant was so crowded speaks volumes about the shortage of decent dining options in the area. You'd be much better off going across the way to the large market and getting take-out.
