Romano’s Macaroni Grill, conveniently located at Ala Moana Center’s Hookipa Terrace, presents diners with the type of Mediterranean-style dishes commonly found along Italy’s exquisite coastline. The philosophy at Romano’s Macaroni Grill is simple — chefs take the freshest ingredients and the most authentic recipes to produce simple, but utterly delicious cuisine.

  • Cari Mizumoto and Nelson Totoki feast on the Chicken Florentine Salad ($14.99) and Carmela's Chicken Rigatoni ($15.59), respectively, at Romano's.

Dining Out recently stopped in to see what diners were feasting on during lunch hour. Customers Cari Mizumoto and Nelson Totoki, on hand for a business meeting, graciously took time out to share with us their menu recommendations.

Nelson Totoki: “I ordered the Carmela’s Chicken Rigatoni ($15.59). It features roasted chicken, fresh mushrooms and caramelized onions with imported rigatoni pasta in a Marsala demi-glace. I think it’s a great dish and the atmosphere is very nice.”

Cari Mizumoto: “I’m having the Chicken Florentine Salad ($14.99) with spinach, orzo pasta, chicken, black olives and Parmesan cheese with a roasted garlic lemon vinaigrette. It’s awesome! The restaurant recently brought it back on the menu and now I’m back for more. It’s very refreshing.”
