Everyone was very pleasant and accommodating. Our server was excellent and checked on how we liked our drinks and food. I definitely give her 5 stars.
One criticism would be that the spicy dishes be presented as such. Way too many hot peppers in the calamari--we couldn't even eat the calamari at the bottom of the dish as they were infused with the peppers. Also, the flat iron steak had a peperonata on top of it--and that was so spicy I was unable to eat it. Our server did replace it with a new steak, but maybe the listing should be a spicy peperonate. At least next time we know what to ask--and there definitely will be a next time.

Pat and I went to Macaroni's Restaurant tonight and they beyond exceeded our expected night out.

The appetizers (peppers in a garlic white wine )
The main course( which included truffled whipped mash potatoes)
The dessert (coffee wine and cheesecake )

This was the best night we had in a long time and 80% of the convo was how great the food was.
10/10 recommend- no pics. Just a good old fashion memory.
Ask for Vincenzo - he was such a great waiter- I told him I was low carb and he said here, I want you to eat and enjoy yourself ... SOLD.

I celebrated my birthday on Friday night nad this was the second time I've been to Macaronis. It was just as good as the first time. The service was excellent, did not have to wait for our table and we were seated outside on the patio. It was a little noisy but I can still hear my girlfriend when we were talking. Our server announced the specials which I always like. The food cam out a little slow but I am sure they were short staffed and it was very busy. I had the rack of lamb and it was excellent, very tender. My girlfriend had the Veal Primo and also a delicious dish. Dessert was equally as good, you can't go wrong when you dine here.

The outdoor patio area is beautiful! The margarita pizza was a 10/10. The brick oven char and the chewy dough made the pizza great. The rigatoni vodka was super saucey and very tasty. The eggplant tower had fried eggplant, mozzarella, and tomato with a balsamic glaze and arugula. It could’ve used a bit of salt but other than that it was great. I enjoyed the fried eggplant part a lot. The tiramisu was also great.

Always a great meal here. Clyde is the best waiter, we try to get him when we are there. Honestly all the wait staff is excellent though. We sat outside this time. They really have made it a beautiful escape back there.

Met some friends at Macaroni’s for lunch this weekend and we really enjoyed it. The service was great and we loved our food.
We shared their Caesar wedge salad and love that they served it with some anchovies draped over it. The dressing was perfect and it was a great starter. My friend and I had the chicken Parmesan which was served with a side of perfectly cooked thin spaghetti. The chicken parm was delicious and we ate every bite! My other friend had the salmon which was served over a lovely salad of sliced fennel, red peppers and drizzled with a yummy dill vinegarette.

Definitely want to go back for dinner.

great food and service but website said $5 glasses of house wine during happy hour. I was charged $10 and when questioned was told that that was no longer available. But still listed on website and also owners responded on facebook that I should have been charged $5 I am a frequent customer here but will not be back because the $10 charge should have been reduced to $5. Still listed on website and I called today and they said that special was no longer available. Very disappointed Food is good but there are other places that care more about their loyal clientele

Service was so terrible I’ve been going there for years, a bunch of young kids that didn’t know what they were doing with no personality, when I first came in to get seated they just threw us in a spot that they had they were trying to put me at a hightop which I didn’t want and I requested not to have one and then shove this in a corner with a bunch a little kids the food was great but the service was terrible like I stated earlier they need to get it together over there!!

Food and service were very good. We dined outside on a very nice July evening and the setting was perfect. I thought prices were slightly on the high end but not outrageous.
Would recommend to a friend who was in the are, not sure it is worth a special trip.

I have been coming here ever since they opened the small restaurant before the big renovation. It's always very good. This time we ate in the bar outside and it was very good as usual. The bar tender was great.
