The food was decent but nothing incredible. If your looking for authentic Italian food go somewhere else. The service wasn't the best. To me it seemed a little run down, the bathrooms weren't very clean which always makes me wonder what the kitchen looks like.

Four of us visited Four of us visited Romano’s Macaroni Grill on Tatum Blvd. at 18:00 on a Saturday evening in April 2017. We asked the hostess for a quiet table and her male associate interceded and said we could have a table right under the access window in front of the kitchen. We were a little surprised as this...

I had been shopping in the area when I noticed this place so I gave it a try. I walked in at just about 11:30, they open at 11:00. I sat at the bar and Mike, the bartender was still counting his till. I was sitting at the bar and a couple was sitting in a booth near by. When... More

This was my second trip there in the last 6 weeks. The service was horrible both times. In addition, they don't put enough sauce on there pasta dishes. Both times I asked for extra sauce. This last time they charged me extra. The lunch deal is not a good deal.

Which is surprising, because I'm not overly fond of Italian food. What I like about this place is that they don't just have the traditional pasta & pizza. I consider the former easy to fix at home & the latter to be kids' "junk food" -- a snack rather than a meal. This place has REAL food, such as lamb... More

My friend and I were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was here with reasonable prices. The ambiance was comfortable and our service was quite attentive. The pizza exceeded my expectations and the pasta and salad were well prepared and the serving sizes were quite large with leftovers to take home. A good pour of wine too. I'll go... More

I enjoy Macaroni Grill because they have really good food, a good environment and good service. I am not a chain fan, but when traveling Romano's Macaroni Grill is always great bet. Their consistency is excellent!

Thought this would be a good place for a family group, but we were extremely disappointed by the service and food. For a Friday night, during prime dinning time, the restaurant was only half full (that should have been our first clue). When we arrived for our 6:30 reservation the table wasn't ready despite the restaurant being only half full.... More

If you need a relax and enjoy your time, this is not the place. We were frequent customers, from this place. When you go with your family and have kids, you want to eat and have a free stressful dinner. So we just let it go pretty much the lack of service, they want to hurry and push you to... More
