Elegant classical surroundings, very pleasant prompt helpful waitstaff. An extensive menu of Italian dishes. But the food is only reasonably good - nothing wrong with it but not as good as the surroundings and prices would suggest. The "pomodorina" is just an ok tomato sauce...More

Out of the way location lets us forget about it. But Pete's service was exceptional. Both the shrimp portofino and chicken Marsala were really tasty. I needed more bread to sop the gravy.

Of the most popular Italian "chain: restaurants, Macaroni Grill is one of the most authentic. The food is actually prepared from scratch in the kitchen. The bread is good and crusty, the sauce is not soupy or overbearing, the pasta is "al dente", the salad...More
