My husband and I are always happy dining here. This time we both ordered Chicken Parmesan with our choice of pasta and topped with lots of mozzarella cheese. It was tender and delicious, but the pasta lacked enough sauce. We alerted the server and he immediately brought a bowl of extra sauce. As soon as we sat down, we received... More

Traveling for business, was hoping to find a familiar restaurant. My meal and service were so nice, I am surprised the place wasn't packed. Maybe the World Series had folks at home. My server, service and food were top-notch

Have been going to Romano's Macaroni Grill since it opened years ago. You can always get a good meal there with fresh made bread for your table.

The sort of Italian atmosphere is comfortable and the food is always good. It was uncrowded at lunch, service was very good, and the $10.50 lunch special was delicious and a lot of pasta. With some wine lunch for three was $82 with tip- must have been the 4 glasses of house red? We've come here frequently over the years... More

Many times this place seems to be disheveled upon entering and lack of attention by servers. I have enjoyed eating the warm spinach salad with scallops. Mostly everything else is very high calorie.

Generally good food, we sometimes miss menu items when they are retired. We used to be blessed with great servers, we actually became friends with a numerous of them, but turnover has changed the level of service. The hostesses don't inspire and the service staff almost ruins the food experience. Yo servers, stop at my table to check up on... More
