The manager was the first person we saw at our table. He brought us our drinks and told us about the restaurant. The server was overloaded with tables. Other servers chipped in and were more relaxed. The bread loaf was great with olive oil. We had to request the balsamic. The food was great. If you don't like spice say... More

A very nice place to celebrate our anniversary! Glad we came! Our meals were delicious. My husband especially enjoyed his shrimp scampi. Our service nicely paced and gracious from our waiter to the manager.

Friendly greeting when you arrive for seating either at a table or the bar. We opted for the bar. Good open space and not overly crowded. The menu offers many healthy dishes. I chose one of my favorites. "Caprese". I asked for some proscuittto on top and they did so but it came fried. I never had it that way... More

Ya it's a chain place but the overall experience was better than I expected. More upscale atmosphere and nice wide selections of menus choices. If you are looking for a quick bite and light food. Try the happy hour daily 4-7 . Beer , wine and drink specials , pizzas to select from in the bar area. Add and app... More

Hubby and I went for dinner tonight. We started with a loaf of warm deciduous bread. I had the Chicken Scaloppini and he had the Classic Italian Bake. We split them both and they were excellent. Very flavourful. We had a waitress named Hunter and she was very helpful and attentive. It was a great dinner. Yum.

Four of us went on a Tuesday and the place had very few tables at 12:30pm. We got our drinks quickly and ordered 2 eggplant parmesan, a chicken florentine salad and the $7 parmesan chicken w/arugula. The waiter was friendly & efficient, food good and portions were large enough for us to take home 1/2 of it! The only downside... More

We went to Romano's Macaroni Grill for dinner with my aunt and cousins, (a big party of 5 adults and 5 children). This restaurant is very kid friendly. There are crayons and butcher paper on every table, which the kids loved. The food was wonderful, I had the Farmhouse Pizza, and I would definitely order it again. The prices are... More

Went on a busy Friday night after leaving a competitor's restaurant due to lack of service and found this place buried with large graduation parties. They assured us we could get a table in 20 to 25 minutes, and they were spot on! The staff was not panicked by the large parties and everything was running smoothly. Our server, Tyler,... More
