Showed at 7:45 pm and was told it was a 30 min wait, looked around and there were a few ready tables and a few that needed prep, 45 mins later finally sit us at one of tables that was ready when we first walked in.... sat us down and the table is lacking silverware & napkins. I could understand... More

Had to be in the Arboretum area today to pick up some things for the plant and across the parking lot was Romano's Macaroni Grill. We've dined at the location in University City on many occasions and always enjoyed it but had never given this one a try. We walked in about 2:30 which was after any lunch rush so... More

We had dinner in the Macroni Grill off the Providence Highway and found the food to be lack luster at best. The pasta was soft and the sauce was thin and watery. The bread served was very soft and without flavor. The service was slow and the waitress was less than enthusiastic.All is all we would not return to the... More

Every time we go, there is an issue. The wait for our food is too long or the food quality is well below average. Last time we had ravioli that was so salty it was inedible. The lamb has been overcooked and on another occasion - undercooked. On a most recent trip, the pizza was soggy and I poured about... More

Love the fresh made to order food. The hostess Cathy has been there for years and takes care of everyone! Wonderful atmosphere and don't forget to ask for curbside when you place a togo order. Great way to pick up dinner.

Used to be a favorite place to go, but has not improved with age. Food was average: pasta with meat sauce was good, but the meatballs were lukewarm and tasteless; grilled chicken was burnt on one side. I was glad I ordered a "meh" wine for the meal! Service was classless. It used to be that the server would use... More

I have been to this Romano Macaroni Grill once before, many years ago and had pretty much the same experience...long wait for just average food. There are too many very good Italian restaurants in South Charlotte to choose from, please don't waist your time and money at this one!

This restaurant has really gone downhill in recent years. Service not as positive, food definitely downgraded, and price increased. The food last time we visited was just ok, served almost cold, and did not taste fresh. Restaurant does not seem as clean as it was in the beginning.

Food was good (even though the Bibb and Bleu salad didn't use bibb lettuce), but the service was horrendous. We sat at the bar to wait for our table. We weren't ready when she asked what we wanted. Then she never came back til we finally got her attention. Then we ordered a bottle of wine for the table. After... More
