Possibly the worst Italian in Albuquerque. This is the second time I have been disappointed in the Macaroni grill, and so much worse than the first time. We ordered the chicken scaloppine and it was downright awful. The artichoke hearts were extremely tough, the little bits of meat were hard, the flavor was blah, and the whole dish was greasier than bad pizza. The kids' spaghetti was all noodles and no sauce. And everything cost way too much for the lousy quality and how little food we got. I can't understand why anyone likes this place - it makes the Olive Garden seem gourmet!
GREAT! If you like unbearable sickness..
Initially we thought the place was great, looked fancy at half the price. We paid the rest of that bill for the next two days. 102 degree fever, vomitting, and unpleasent trips to the bathroom every 15 minutes. This occured within 1 hour of eating and both my wife and I had to call off of work.
The food tastes OK at the time, but it will haunt you later. Eat at your own risk!
Italian at it's worst. Nice waiters but the food... After eating here several times I took 2 friends here for lunch, we all had chicken ravolis, all of us became ill with in a few hours. This place has a problem with their handling of chicken. I was ill for a month then gave up and went to the doctor as did my friends. When we contacted the restaurant they appoligized, then transfered me to their claims deptartment, some insurance company. After answering 15 mins. of questions, the woman told me it was not the restaurant food that made us ill. Strange that all 3 ate the same dish and became ill. This is just a chain and I will not return.
Performing chefs cook up rustic, home-style Italian entrees at this buzzing family restaurant..
A boisterous, all-ages crowd of pasta lovers pack this energetic Italian spot, where chefs clad in white hats and red scarves keep diners wide-eyed by showing their moves in the busy open kitchen. The menu boasts family-sized portions of hearty traditional fare, from antipasti, chicken and pasta dishes to seafood, steak and wood-fired pizzas. Signature plates include grilled pork chops, lobster ravioli, and penne rustica with shrimp, grilled chicken and smoked prosciutto in cream sauce.
Outstanding Service. Outstanding Service, Great Food. A wonderful place for a date.
Nothing but the best!. Everytime i am in any city with a Ramano's, i must eat there! Everything about this place is perfect, its Romantic, the food is absolutly the best! I also just love how your watior/waitress will write their name on your table cloth and leave the crayons for you to color also! So again, the atmosphere is the best, the service is great, and the food is awesome!
It ain't Chef Boyardee!. More than just a spaghetti house, it offers variety, quality, generous portions... and every taste bud will be happy. Service is always good but there is generally a wait for seating in the evenings. It's a bit too loud to be truly a romantic atmosphere but it's great for families, special occasions and desserts to die for. Strolling entertainers.
cheap romance. It was elegant. The food was quick and tastey. The atmosphere was fun and upbeat.
Magnifico!!. I had the Gamboretti E Pinoli, I've had it many many times. The flavors are perfectly blended, the service is fast and friendly, and I recommend the Pino Grigio with dinner. And they provice crayons so that you can doodle while you wait for your food. The whole experience was Magnifico!
