Server was nice and drinks were good on patio... Food wise nothing to rave about, all chain food....Nothing too exciting

After reading recent reviews, I was sceptical but we went anyways. Good experience. No wait. Service was fast and good. One minor glitch but was quickly looked after. Chicken Marsala, Chicken Scallopini, salad, 1 beer, 1 merlot, 2 sorbets=$85. That’s fine with me. And the...More

We have been going to this grill for many years - at least a couple of times on our twice a year trips to the Waikoloa area. Was always a must for us - welcoming, great service, food and good value. Last year was not...More

If any one thing had been stellar with our one visit to Romano’s, I’d be writing a different sort of review. Our whole experience fell between the “meh” and “this is not good” range and mostly had to do with service. First off, we waited...More

Eaten pasta many times when visiting the States but this was the best ever. To go along with the meal a nice selection of beers and wine and outstanding staff.

Husband is a picky eater, so it fit the bill. He had spaghetti with meat sauce (Bolognese). I had shrimp scampi, which was fine until I realized the jumbo shrimp were not de-veined. That's right folks, pretty sure I ate shrimp poop 💩. Gross!

One of the more affordable restaurants in Waikoloa did not disappoint when it came to the food offerings. Meat, fish, chicken fingers, fries and salads were all quite tasty.

Wasn’t up to macaroni Grill standards. An hour to get served. Food was sub par. (Bad) Love Macaroni Grill, have dined in many. Little Caesars is better than this one.

Could be in Oklahoma or Hawaii. Food was consistent and good. Wine not so much. But a dependable choice and easy walk from the Marriott

Hawaii and prices....Paradise has its price and you do have to pay to get food items to the Islands. That said, Romano's is good food and the price is cheaper than other restaurants. It is arguable not fine dining, but the... More

You don't bring your own wine, you have to BUY there and that depends on the type of wine you buy $30-to probably hundreds. They are priced the same as any other Macaroni Grill, it's a chain. It's reasonable. But nothing... More

Inspired by Italian trattoria cuisine, culture, and conversation, Romano's Macaroni Grill has been proudly serving unforgettable meals that leave a lasting impression to our deserving guests since 1988 - with knowledge, care and Italian charisma infused in everything we do. At Romano's Macaroni Grill, we know that for our guests any night out is a big night out - and it is our responsibility and privilege to treat it as such. That's why we start every meal off right: With a bottle of wine at the center of the table, while you explore our menu of expertly handcrafted rustic dishes and Italian classics. Warm distinctive touches, like our signature honor system wine and bustling open kitchen, create a memorable, sensory experience that you'll remember long after you leave the table.
