We have been to this specific restaurant several times and had a good time. Yesterday however, we had one of the worst experience in a restaurant. The greeter was very rude and doesnt know how to smile or to greet people. She left us waiting until the Manager got involved when he saw us waiting and the restaurant almost empty.... More

My daughter and I ate here for lunch. It was great. We had a blood orange martini. Very good! Food was as great as the service. We will most differently be back.

The food and service in this restaurant are great. The fresh bread is one item we go to this restaurant for. I like their chicken parmesan and miss their veal parmesan which they don't serve anymore.

They don't have Romano's where I live, so I make a point to visit one if there is one near me. This particular one did not disappoint at all! Besides the food being delicious, we got some of the best service we've ever had in a restaurant. Our server, Michelle, was friendly, engaging and super efficient! Thank you for a... More

We ate here at 3:30 pm on Friday, Nov. 13. The restaurant was almost empty, maybe 3 other groups. This resulted in a terrific visit, great service and delicious hot food. Our server was Adams and she did a great job, very attentive. We started with the Spicy Ricotta Meatballs ($6.50) as we enjoyed a glass of the house wine... More

Not a big fan of Macaroni Grill. Their food and service has declined over the years but my dad wanted to come and eat here. It was loud, as usual. Our server was nice but it seemed like we had to ask for everything. She gave us Olive Oil and although the other tables had vinegar, we had to ask.... More

Whatever town we are in, if there's a Romano's, we can be assured of good food. This one however was chintzy on the oil & balsamic to dip the bread in. For a table of 4 there was only one serving, we asked for more and again the waiter only brought enough for 1 person. We gave up at that... More

What a bargain, $7.00 lunch specials served to the table and in 7 Minutes or it is free. I ordered one of the pasta dishes and it was a nice portion for the price. Nice service and good tasting pasta all for $7.... recommended MeuterMedia
