Celebrate Valentine’s Day at Romano’s Macaroni Grill and enjoy a special Valentine’s Wine & Dine three-course dinner featuring some of the restaurant’s most popular dishes ($32 per person, available through Feb. 15) and 25 percent off select bottles of wines.

Available at both Hawaii locations (Ala Moana Center on Oahu, and Queen’s Marketplace on Hawaii Island), the Valentine’s Wine & Dine menu includes an antipasti or appetizer (choice of Bruschetta, Spicy Ricotta Meatballs, Mac & Cheese Bites or Goat Cheese Peppadew Peppers), an entree (choice of Chicken Under a Brick, Chicken Scaloppine, Chicken Marsala, Fresh Island Fish, Grilled Salmon or Shrimp Portofino) and a dolce, or sweet item (choice of Lemon Passion, Gelato or Sorbet). You also can upgrade your entree to Tuscan Rib Eye or Grilled Pork Chop for an additional $8.

“We are the perfect venue to celebrate lunch or dinner,” says Emi Espinda, director of sales and marketing, Hawaii. “Also, each Valentine will receive a gift from the restaurant, and can enter to win a romantic dinner for two at Romano’s Macaroni Grill!”

Serving fine Italian cuisine in a fun, family-friendly setting, Romano’s Macaroni Grill is known for its extensive, flavorful array of Tuscan-inspired entrees, classic Italian pasta dishes, grilled specialties, signature items, pizzas and flatbreads, seasonal features and scrumptious desserts. The popular restaurant chain was founded in 1988 in Texas and has since grown to about 180 locations worldwide. In Hawaii, its Ala Moana Center location celebrated its 10th anniversary a few months ago, and the Queen’s Marketplace restaurant opened in 2008.
