My husband and I felt like eating Italian, so we decided to go to Romano's. I had lasagna with salad, and he had pizza with soup. The food was good, and the service was good and fast.

Nice lunch after shopping all day at Ala Moana mall. Romano's Macaroni Grill offered several lunch specials and a full menu. They brought lots of hot delicious bread to the table with olive oil for dipping.

absolutely loved the pepper, oil and balsamic vinegar with the warm loaf of bread, never had it before, but now I'm hooked Can you PLEASE tell me what vinegar and oil you use as I have been trying to find it to no avail and my pantry is getting ful of oil and balsamic vinegar and barbeque season is coming up in Oz and I would so like to introduce this to our family.

No, there isnt a dress code as far as I'm aware. We were dressed in the usual Hawaiian get-up of shorts, t-shirts and thongs (flip flops) and didn't have any hassle at all.

Response from slclark2 | Reviewed this property |
yes they have happy hour and a happy hour menu. Try the meatballs! I think it runs from 4:00 to 7:00 but I'd call to be sure. You can get a glass (note it's a drinking glass) of wine for $4.

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.
