ROMANO'S MACARONI GRILL
ROMANO'S MACARONI GRILL
Located in the Ala Moana Shopping Center in Honolulu, the Macaroni Grill is a good, family friendly place to grab a lunch or dinner. We took some friend and three girls ages 3 to 7 there to celebrate Keli's 7th Birthday. All of the girls enjoyed macaroni and cheese with a side of fresh grilled broccoli. Yes, they ate the broccoli and loved it. I tried it and it was good. We ordered a Margherita Pizza as an appetizer for the table. At $10.99 it was a bargain. Good sized brick oven cooked pizza topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, fresh tomatoes and basil. Everyone said it was good. Both couples split a Ceasar Salad. It was also good and served with large pieces of anchovy on top. For entrees, our friends split the Mama's Trio. Three Italian favorites on one plate. Lasagna Bolognese, Chicken Cannelloni and Chicken Parmesan. This is a lot of food for $16.99. A bargain if you split it between two people. Shirley enjoyed Chicken Scaloppine. Sauteed chicken breast with mushrooms, artichokes, capers and smoked prosciutto in a lemon butter sauce. Served over capellini pasta ($15.99). There was enough for two people here and it was quite tasty. I enjoyed the Seafood Linguine. Shrimp, scallops and clams sauteed with oven roasted tomatoes, basil, arugula and linguine in a white wine, garlic and olive oil sauce ($16.99). The dish was o.k. A little oily and tasteless. The shrimp and scallops had no flavor. The clams were small but good. I could only eat half. The table enjoyed a double bottle of Chianti wine. At $32 it is a bargain for two bottles of wine. During the course of our dinner we were pleased to have two songs sung by one of the employees. She was Asian and 23 yet belted out songs in Italian that were really good. This is a great place to eat family style and bring kids. The service was excellent. The food and prices are good.
