When the Italian locals are lined up out the door, you know you've found a hidden gem. Unless you are absolutely famished, tell the server that you want your soup 'to go', and you'll have a delicious lunch the next day too. I have a hearty appetite, but can rarely finish the main course, much less the soup as well.... More

I adore this place because if it's simple, legit, delicious Italian fare. Yes, the Soup is to die for and you can get it to go! The delectable sauces as well! Fees like I'm eating at someone's grandmas house! All served up in a small, cozy, kitschy, unfussy atmosphere! Each time I'm in the area, a visit to this gem... More

We only had one night in Cranston, and we wasted it on Macera's. Service and atmosphere was great, but the food was disappointing. Even the most basic marinara sauce was bland, with little hint of seasoning.

Six friends for dinner. The Calamari appetizer was much better than average. Rings were cooked perfectly and blended great with the hot peppers. My dinner was the Veal Casserole which included veal, eggplant, mushrooms, red peppers and marinara sauce topped with mozzarella cheese, It came with salad and pasta. It was excellent and there was enough left over for me... More

Excellent Italian food. Great service in a cozy,friendly atmosphere. Had escarole and beans. It was terrific. Had an arugula salad with grilled chicken and grilled portobello, was to die for. Been here in Cranston for 30 years and I guess that's the reason why. Go early it gets crowded.

My wife and I have been here a couple of times for lunch. Especially good was their house salad and dressing, eggplant parmesan and lasagna. Their soups are outstanding, as well. The atmosphere is cozy, and the waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. I had a gift card for Olive Garden, and we went there a few weeks ago. The food... More

I go to Maceras for the chicken escarole every time someone is sick. The best chicken soup around. Priced right. Service is usually quick for take out although it's usually packed because it's so popular. They have great entrees too and I've been happy when I sat down to eat as well.

I had heard good things about the soups here, and loved the decor. It was awesome, and the place was decorated with all kinds of little scarecrows. The soups were indeed delicious, as was the chicken parm! I went again more recently for lunch, and ordered the chicken Francaise with the server's blessing. Unfortunately, the chicken was raw. My server... More

Been here several times over the last few years. I have never been disappointed with the food and service. I also think the To Go Soup is the best, when ever a sick family member is home, I always bring over the Chicken Escarole soup. Its so good.
