Performing chefs cook up rustic, home-style Italian entrees at this buzzing family restaurant.. In Short A boisterous, all-ages crowd of pasta lovers pack this energetic Italian spot, where chefs clad in white hats and red scarves keep diners wide-eyed by showing their moves in the busy open kitchen. The menu boasts family-sized portions of hearty traditional fare, from antipasti, chicken and pasta dishes to seafood, steak and wood-fired pizzas. Signature plates include grilled pork chops, lobster ravioli, and penne rustica with shrimp, grilled chicken and smoked prosciutto in cream sauce.
Love Macaroni Grill!.
Okay, so it's not the best Italian ever, but given the choice of Olive Garden or Romano's, I'll choose Romano's any day of the week. I have two kids, and my husband and I have gone with the kids (great kid's menu) and alone on a date. We can't afford to go to expensive trendy restaurants, so Romano's is as romantic as it gets for us! We love it! The low lights create a great atmosphere, and although it can be loud, we enjoy it very much. I've never ordered something I didn't thoroughly enjoy, and their salad is yummy too. If you've got money to spend on an expensive restaurant, then you should probably skip out on Romano's. If you're on a budget, it's absolutely wonderful!
Good bang for the buck.
The food is good, better than most average chains. It's not great though. Wouldn't classify it as a dining experience; more of choice by convenience. I made my own past creation for 7.99, picked 3 mix-ins from the list/a sauce/added grilled chicken for $2 more. Bargain. High on value. Like the open interior & earthy tones.
