Macaronis is a tucked away
Macaronis is a tucked away spot that I've driven by never knowing it was there. A friend recommended it for dinner and WoW! I can't believe it's been this close and I've never known about it. Delish! Great experience!

Well worth the ride from Cherry Hill! The food was exceptional! Wait staff was very friendly and non-intrusive.

We were pretty excited to try this restaurant and were impressed by the decor as we entered. However, we were greeted by a mean and cold hostess. We thought it might have been downhill from there, but thankfully, the food was delicious, and the actual service was great. It's a shame that we almost left based on the awful hostess.

Good food - Not Kid Friendly!!
My husband and I have dined her while it was still the small 8-10 table restaurant. We now dine there with the expansion which was a nice addition to the restaurant. Recently, we had a baby. We came to Macaroni's for my birthday dinner and was surprised to find out that the good spot we like is NOT kid friendly. They do not have any highchair or booster seats available. Also when we walked in with our daughter, we were made to wait at the hostess stand while she went into the back to talk to someone. This is very disappointing as we really like the food and atmosphere but we also do not have anyone close by that can watch our daughter so she needs to come along with us. She was quiet the entire time,no one knew she was there.

Mothers Day treat
Delicious meal. Excellent chicken Marsala and risotto with asparagus . My husband's filet with crabmeat was done to perfection, and the veal saltambucco was declared the best ever tasted by two guests. Service was very efficient, friendly but not hovering. A great restaurant right in the neighborhood. I'll use this for special occasions.

I was impressed with the menu and service. The food came out piping hot and fresh and was prepared in an original way. The sauces were not overbearing but added the perfect complement to the dishes. Pricey, but worth every penny.

Dinner With Friends
Every year our group of friends goes out to a nice restaurant for dinner. I recommended Macaroni's this year and everyone loved it. The bar is a good spot to meet for a drink before dinner, and the dining room is accomodating of a larger group. The waitor couldn't have been more professional and nice at the same time. He offered to tweek the appetizers for the group giving us more of a family style serving. Our entrees were all very good and we did not feel rushed in the least bit. Over all I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Had an outstanding dinner
Food was wonderful and tastefully prepared. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Even as we lingered over our meal, we never felt rushed. Can't wait to go again!

I have been going here for years and the food has always been excellent, the staff friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. I would recommend it to anyone,

Promising food, great atmosphere
I dined here about a week ago and was very pleased with the service and the ambiance. The food however could have been much better. I wasn't expecting haute cuisine but it could have still tasted much better than it did had it been better seasoned. The seafood salad bruschetta (special) was actually quite tasty.

Worth Looking For
Such a upscale restaurant but so hard to find that my business partner circled the block several times and then still needed to ask for directions to meet me there. A few weeks before, I happened to pass by accidentally and noticed the wonderful aromas coming from the restaurant or otherwise i would not have known it was there. The seafood rissoto was so delicious. We had no distractions to our conversation as we were the only patrons for most of the time we were there at lunch.
6/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food here is delicious but a bit pricey. I thought the service could have been a bit better but overall we were pleased.

Get the Steak
The first time I went to Macaroni's Restaurant, my companion had the filet mignon and I got the lobster ravioli. Ravioli wasn't terribly impressive and I wished I had gotten the steak! This time, my table of 3 all ordered the 8 oz. filet mignon and were NOT disappointed. Get the steak!

Delicious as always
We had previously tried Macaroni's on a credit voucher. Now, we don't mind paying the full price for a fantastic dinner. This is our third time back since the half price deal! Macaroni's has become our favorite place. The creme brulee pie is my boyfriend's favorite. This time I had filet special--mouthwatering.. and the cioppini is always delicious.

Great food and wonderful environmen
Great food and wonderful environment! Will definitely make this a regular spot for us.

FOOD IS GREAT, ATMOSPHERE IS GREAT, SERVICE IS GREAT!!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is fantastic! From the great house cab to a wonderful crab and shrimp app and pastas prepared to perfection I have nothing but wonderful things to say! We really enjoyed my boyfriends birthday dinner and macaroni's! We have already reccomended to several people and will for sure return ourselves! Definitely a new date night favorite!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing find close to home! The food was fantastic and the service was par-none! I will most certainly come back!! :D

It's been to long between Visits!!
My wife and I hadn't been to Macaroni's in years. This visit Saturday night reminded us to how much we loved the food there. We had an excellent meal with outstanding service. A four thumbs up!! We will be back soon.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Perfect Dining Experience
Friendly, quiet with a cool vibe. Service was professional and welcoming. The food here is truly as good as one could hope for. Hand crafted with depth of flavors only possible when a cook loves hsi craft. My wife and I had a truly wonderful evening and left very happy indeed.

Romantic Within Budget
This restaurant had such good service. It's ambiance was dim, candlelit, with low noise. The food was delicious and different. You could easily have a nice dinner for two with an alcoholic beverage for under $100. You can also eat very classy and the bill gets higher. But it fits moderate budgets so you can treat your special someone for a romantic dinner or take a food lover for a special occasion and not break your wallet.

Meal was a pleasant experience
Meal was a pleasant experience and would surly eat there again. Décor is very nice, makes you feel comfortable which helps to enjoy the meal. Service personal were very nice and always smiling and available when we needed them or had questions.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was my first time there and i loved it. Everything was fresh and homemade. Will going back again.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We just love coming to Macaroni's Restaurant. This time we brought my mom and she just loved everything about the evening, from her dinner, drinks and service! We always have a great meal, and the service is always wonderful! I had the fish of the day special and I was so pleased that I chose it. My mom had the lamb, my son had the chicken, and my husband had steak. We all went home completely satisfied with our meal!

Excellent as always!!!
My husband and I go there every year for our anniversary. As always, the food was beyond words, service impeccable.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Even though this is an old restaurant, newly redecorated, we had never heard of it.
Everything about it says we will be back.
9/13/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a great meal at Macaroni's and the service is impeccable. Our favorite restaurant...
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Waiter Service. He knew the menu and was excellent in reciting it. Good Food and Quiet Music.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Noise & Tables
Was meeting someone for the first time on a weekday night. I asked for a quiet area before being seated and we were placed in the center of the room. The tables for two were too long, which placed us too far apart to be able to hear each other. The noise level was too loud. I asked for the music on the speakers to be be turned down (or off) twice, with no results. It was a great restaurant for a large loud group, but not for a quiet intimate conversation.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a wonderful experience. The food was outstanding, service impeccable. Would recommend to all.
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went here for our anniversary while visiting Philadelphia based on reviews from Yelp and Open Table. Their special martinis were very good although at 12.00 each a little pricey. We shared an appetizer of scallops which were delicious. We also shared a special Swiss charred salad with gargonzola cheese and apple vinaigrette dressy -- very good. For our entrees I picked the Veal Saltimbocca and my wife chose the Lobster ravioli. The Saltimbocca is one of my favorite dishes to order and although I have it better at two other places this was still very good. My wife said the Lobster ravioli was by far the best she has ever had. Real lobster and lots of it in the ravioli accompanied by a superb sauce! Overall - Excellent!

Nice for the northeast
We went here a couple times because it is like center city dining in the northeast. However, for some reason I don't feel completely comfortable there. They aren't very attentive. After they get your order they disappear and don't check up on you to see if you need a drink or anything. And they have plenty of waiters/servers,, so i dont know why that is. You feel like you are forgotten about. The food is so-so. Anyway, I think I would rather go the extra mile and go somewhere that I feel more comfortable.

GREAT FOOD !!!
EVERY TIME I GO AND ORDER SOMETHING IS ALWAYS TASTE GREAT !!!!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great dining experience as usual
Another great dining experience. Food was delicious and service great. Can't wait to go back! Had appetizer, salad, entree and dessert and loved them all.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Gem in the Northeast
Excellent service, elegant ambiance and delicious food tucked away in the Northeast... great for a nice romantic dinner or even a business meal. High-end without being overly stuff, and the staff are attentive and responsive without being overbearing.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding! Never disappoints
Always a great dining experience! Food is fantastic. Never had a bad meal. Only complaint this time was they weren't on top of our drinks as usual. Long wait for them. Could be the bar was extremely crowded.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant has managed
This restaurant has managed to serve food that is excellent and never disappoints. We have been going there for many years -- it was great when we first went and is as good, or even better, now. The atmosphere is lovely and the service is outstanding. It is one of the best restaurants I know and definitely the best that Northeast Philadelphia has to offer!

On October 19th, I took my sister to this establishment along with my wife for a late lunch for my sister's birthday. A young maitre-d / waiter, sat our party down and the fun began. NOTE: I was not from the area. The food was out of this world. The starters, the entrees, the SERVICE... Wow. Not a bad moment at this establishment. The freshness of the dishes were impeccable. I can't wait to go there again with a larger party to enjoy their food and service. I tip my hat to Macaroni's!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
VERY CONSISTENT. ALWAYS ENJOY
VERY CONSISTENT. ALWAYS ENJOY THE QUALITY OF THE FOOD.

We really enjoy going to Macaroni Restaurant (not to be confused with the Macaroni Grille chain). The food here is always outstanding. We had the Cavatelli with Crabmeat. Pasta was fresh, tons of crabmeat and the sauce was excellent. The Eggplant stack as an appetizer was also a hit.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding dining experience
Simply put, everything was outstanding. Started with drinks and apps at the bar, Manhattan was well made, calamari was excellent. Moved to the dining room and the veal chop special with risotto didn't disappoint. Was cooked perfectly and very generous portion. Would definitely recommend and return. Rather small dining room, so you definitely feel personalized attention from the staff.
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had the pleasure of dining twice at Macaroni"s recently and enjoyed it both times. The ambiance is great...modern, dark and romantic. My husband and I loved the food. It was a welcome change to what is available in the area. Yes, $23 is outlandish for linguine and clams and yes, it is higher priced than the rest of the restaurants in the area, but the ingredients are the best and the portions are large. I went back a few days later with a friend and it was as wonderful as the first time. My only issue was the service. It was friendly but without any rhyme or reason. No one seemed to have a handle on our table either time. The second time we were served by one of the owners so I was surprised he was so inattentive and unsure of timing.

Dinner after a long drive
We had dinner here after a long drive to and from Doylestown. Dining here was relaxing and enjoyable. Excellent wines, outstanding food. Loved the appetizer mozzarella bread (I forget name) , but it was delightful.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
The menu options and specials
The menu options and specials offered are always delicious. Service is impeccable.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Warm and friendly atmosphere with outstanding Italian fare. The Chef's antipasto with their homemade meats is wonderful as is their lobster ravioli which are filled with mainly lobster chunks. The owners, Dave and John, are very personable and willing to please. Service was impeccable. Live in Maryland but met family the last two years for lunch there. Will make this an annual trip.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
LIFE IS GOOD!!
WHAT CAN I SAY AS ALWAYS DAVID & STAFF MAKE YOU FEEL AT HOME.
LUNCH WAS GREAT ENOUGH TIME TO RELAX HAVE SOME DRINKS AND
GREAT FOOD. DAVID YOU ARE THE MAN THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR
MAKING THIS MEETING WITH OLD FRIENDS GREAT.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
The ownership has changed,
The ownership has changed, but to no loss, actually better than the previous who was considered great.. Lunch crowds are still a bit small because the previous didn't do lunch. Food and service was excellent and the help (server and bar tender) made everyone feel comfortable and appreciated. We already plan on going back again very soon.
11/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Service! Great food!
Had a very nice time at Macaroni's! Went for lunch with my mom and it was quiet and the service was excellent. Would definitely go back and recommend!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I visted Macaroni's for the first time on Saturday night and ahd a wonderful evening. We shared the pasta dish with wild boar ragu as an appetizer and are still talking about how amazing it was. Very nice wine list and the Veal dishes are great. The service also 5 star! We will definitely return!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
All around good restaurant
Good service, good food, what more can you ask for in the Northeast. There are not many of them!
