Diner Reviews
  • "We were seated right away and found they were keeping the front doors open because some people had complained that the restaurant was too hot. As this was a 7:45 reservation my date and I both found it chilly and I asked if the doors could be closed and the hostesses were happy to oblige. 30 mins. later they were open again. The food was tasty but there were very long delays between courses. I fear those delays had more bearing on the texture of the scallops than actual overcooking by the chef. I waited a long time for a drink refill which was finally delivered by one of the hostesses. In the waiters' defense, he had a table of 15 or 16 also, but 3 parties were seated after us and were served and completed their meals long before us."

  • "ALWAYS impeccable service and oustanding food. Dimly lit yet not too dark, perfect ambiance and terrigic drink selection. Been there at least once a month for the last 2 years."

  • "We had a wonderful diner! Started with a Shrimp & pea Risotto with tomato and saffron broth - tremendous! I had a Ciopinno - clams, mussels, shrimp, calamari and crab meat. My wife had a wonderful pasta with Jumbo crabmeat. Great waiter, great ambiance - we'll be back!"

  • "Every time we have a special occasion to celebrate or just want to have a nice dinner, this is where we go. Food is excellent, service is outstanding. Never had a bad experience and I've been here plenty of times. I would recommend and have recommended this restaurant to anyone.."

  • "Price is only a concern when what you're paying for isn't worth it. This Restaurant is significantly overpriced. Not only is the food overpriced, as the quality is subpar, but paying center city prices for a little restaurant in the northeast is absurd. The service was mediocre at best and the clientele in sneakers and jeans. Again, not for these prices. Food quantity was more than fair, but quality very poor."

  • "Food is always very good and unique at Macaroni's. It's a nice diversion from all of the chain places in the neighborhood. The service is friendly, the restaurant is clean and nicely set. You are never rushed. Just sit and enjoy fine dining. Everything is good, so you never have to worry about experimenting. We highly recommend Macaroni's. It's a great place to have a nice, elegant, dining experience for adults. Try the eggplant stack appetizer ... really good."

  • "Our group of 8 had a nice meal. The wait staff was very attentive and professional. The ambience, etc. is great. A few minor details could have been better: the tables are higher than usual, with regular chairs (makes you feel like a kid at the table); asked for light sauce with my veal entree (it was served drenched/swimming in sauce); Tried the tiramisu for dessert, and while the taste was decent, parts of it were still frozen."

  • "Food was great, service was great.....but was pricey for a North East Philly location. Zaccone's on Cottman Ave has just about the same menu for less... plus it's BYOB. Lower your prices and you will be mobbed...especially with your new Patio."

  • "My wife and I enjoyed a Valentine's weekend dinner. Food, service and ambience were all top-notch. After dinner, attempted to move to the Bar for an after-dinner drink. Bar was very crowded, which, we believe is a good thing. We would definitely return to this restauarnt and in particular, for special occassions and would highly recommend to friends. The free and readily accessible parking(strip-center shopping plaza in rear of restaurant) also makes this a hassle-free expereince as well. GJO 2/17/14."

  • "The food was great with a menu that was hard to choose from because the menu had so much good choices of food to pick from. The specials were also very tasty choices. I would definitely put this restaurant down as a great pick for Italian cuisine."

  • "We treated friends for dinner and we chose Macaroni's because we have dined here before and knew our friends would love it and they did. The service was excellent and the food was superb. I have recommended Macaroni's to friends and they always think it's the chain restaurant so I make a point of telling them this place is unique."

  • "This is was the first time we had been there in a few years (since renovation). Wow! The feel and look really changed. Bigger, Modern and more hip. Menu had excellent selections (including some of the old favorites). Mom (birthday girl) very please. However, my husband and I missed the smaller, quieter atmosphere. Probably because that is where we went for a quiet romantic dinners when we first dated. So, we felt like it lost its charm. We will come again, because it is still excellent. Probably try a week night or earlier in the day when it is not so crowded. We loved it, but we missed the charm and romance feel it once had. I am glad to see the owners have been so successful. After all they deserve it. All the best!"

  • "Poor ambiance. Hostess acted as if we were bothering her. When we walked in we announced we had a reservation. All she did was pick up 2 menus and walked away. I guess she expected us to know she was seating us. She put the menus on the table and walked away. We were celebrating a wedding anniversary (41 years). It was Thursday at 6pm, 1/16/2014."

  • "Aside from driving past the restaurant twice because it blends in with the buildings on either side, then finding parking, it was worth the drive. This is truly a neighborhood gem. The food is good, the restaurant has a nice feel and it is not a chain."

  • "My wife and I had a 6:00pm reservation on a Saturday night in January. I had the Cavatelli with Crab Meat, and my wife had a Shrimp and Linguini dish. Both dinners were incredible. We had a bottle of Pinot Noir, which was also very good. For our appetizer, we share the Shrimp Scampi Bread, which was delicious, and for dessert, we had an 'out of this world' Creme Brûlée Pie. Tony K was our waiter and he was tremendous……would highly recommend for a couples dinner nite…."
