Discover the extraordinary flavors of Italy at Romano’s Macaroni Grill at Ala Moana Center on Oahu and Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Big Island. The restaurant offers an award-winning menu with Tuscan-inspired entrees, classic Italian pasta dishes, grilled specialties, pizzas and desserts.

“Romano’s Macaroni Grill celebrates the rich tradition of Italy, where the kitchen is the heart of the home and where friends and family gather to share wonderful food, wine and good times,” notes Emi Espinda, director of sales and marketing.

The family-friendly restaurant also offers a Kids Eat Free all day Monday and Tuesday special with the purchase of an adult entree. Or stop in for happy hour from 3 to 6 p.m. and 8 to 10 p.m. daily.

Among the most popular menu items at Romano’s Macaroni Grill are Mama’s Trio, Chicken Parmesan and Tuscan Ribeye. Also a favorite is Butternut Squash Tortellacci (vegetarians can order it without prosciutto) with four cheese-stuffed tortellacci, Asiago cream, butternut squash and Parmesan.


Romano’s has tasty options for vegetarians, such as Mushroom Ravioli ($17) featuring porcini-stuffed fresh pasta, caramelized onions, mushrooms and a marsala cream sauce; and Caprese salad ($12) with vine ripened tomatoes, imported buffalo mozzarella, basil and a honey balsamic glaze.
