“Lost us as customers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

We loved to go to Romano's Macaroni Grill. They had a wonderful lobster ravioli. About a year ago they decided to take it off the menu. They replaced it with a different recipe for lobster ravioli. We have not been back because of the change. We loved the place. The waiters were great and we always had a good time. However, I am very limited on what I can eat there and they took away the one thing that I loved. We really miss it.

“Always a good experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2013

Have been there a lot of times and it's always a great experience, right from the bread and olive oil. The paper and crayons keep the kids occupied. The usual pasta dishes are good. The servers are quite helpful.

“Very good restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

The food is very good, the menu is rather diverse.
It's rather noisy, not as authentic as it seems to claim to be.

“consistent Italian-style chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 April 2013

The staff working the front desk was efficient and polite. They promptly seated us.

The Italian nachos were a hit, so was the calamari. My shrimp entree was only OK. The pasta servings were huge, and the people who ordered them loved them. Lasagna, especially.

Good choice of wines.

Drinks were replenished just often enough. The waiter did well managing our table of 8. I'd give this place 4 stars if my entree was better. I'll return if I'm in the area.
