Portland >Romano's Macaroni Grill
Great pasta. I went to Ramonos macaroni grill recently with a group of friends. I was expectiong to find a large menu of diffrent pastas and sauces, but instead was dissipointed in the small selection. I guess i was looking for some ravioli, penne, or ziti, with possibly a vodka or cheese sauce, becuase i dont really care for meat. Instead the only options i saw were alfredo and spaghetti. They do howere have a cool ' creat your own' menu where you choose the noodle and sauce, i did find a vodka sauce, some buffalo cheese, and penne that i 'created' into a meal. It was good, not great but good. the only reason i didnt find the whole experiance great was becuase the create you own mean has a seperate menu you check list off and it took them quite a long time to bring it too me. Other than that its a great place for familys and groups of friends with a busy atmosphere, and all my other friends really enjoyed their meals!

One salad never got delivered and one dinner was not delivered until 10 minutes after the rest were served. There was no explanation or apology, until we mentioned it. The food was fine and not terribly expensive but...
