Food is excellent. They are always quick to bring out the meal but you do have a bit of a wait to first order and if you want desert. It’s worth it for the food!
The Vegan food menu is amazing. Basically all imported Italian wines.
Excellent food with stunning presentation. The vegan antipasti and main dishes were all delicious, and the service was lovely. We were well looked after. We will definitely be back.
Fantastic staff, fantastic food and fantasic cocktails. They offer the best vegan food in Australia. Vegan meatballs, calamari and lasagne a must haves.
We had been to Maccaroni Osteria Italiana once before, and the welcome and food were fantastic - so went last night for my birthday. In order of occurrence: - On a fairly short winelist, the wine we chose was not available. - Three of us ordered the barramundi; after a few minutes, the waitress came back to inform us there was only one barramundi - at only 7.30 in the evening. - My guests having re-ordered, their meals came, but not mine. After an absence of my order - or indeed any contact or interest by the wait staff - it turned out that the order had not got through, and I ended up with my meal (the world's fastest risotto - that's not intended as a compliment) when my guests were just finishing theirs. Great food - but absolutely chaotic and untrained front of house.
Rose, the waitress was charming and obliging despite being busy. Macaroni is the first restaurant I’ve found that offers an entire vegan menu and separately a FODMAP menu. That’s impressive. We quite enjoyed the main courses. The mussels were good and the seafood stew a pleasure. I found my lamb shank provided me with a meagre meal for the price but it tasted very pleasant. The desserts were really disappointing. The pastry on the tart tasted like flour and water and the pannacotta was the worst we’ve had anywhere, being more like gelatin than cream. The chocolate and almond mousse was more successful. On the whole we did not find our meals particularly good value and the service was a little slow but we might come back to try other main courses and to see Rose again.
This is by far my favourite Italian restaurant, food made with love like my Nonna use to make. I love that there is a vast variety of delicious vegan and gluten free options. I have been 4 times now and each time, the food has been out-of-this-world, FULL of flavour. The atmosphere is very calm, romantic and the staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.
This is a great place - have been here a few times - but inmost recent visit, service experience was disappointing. Appears staff give preferential service to diners on the bar level - rather than the lower level near front windows. Waited an extraordinary long time between being seated - drink orders - meal orders, etc.. Couldn't get wait staff attention to get new drinks without leaving table and approaching bar or to hail them (which I hate doing). Then waited ,what seems like an eternity, to have plates cleared and dessert menus to arrive. Always love the food and ambience here - but service was not great this time round. Nevertheless, I'll still return as love the menu offering here and the pleasant atmosphere
As someone who needs to follow a low FODMAP diet to manage symptoms of IBS, to find a restaurant that specifically offers a LOW FODMAP menu, alongside their regular menu and vegan and vegan-FODMAP menus is just a god send. And then we got nothing but beautiful food. Couldn’t recommend more highly!
Service a little slow at the start. Waiter didn’t seem to know what I was asking for when I requested the FODMAP menu, the main reason we wanted to try this restaurant. All the meal qualifying questions were asked later by another member of staff. Wine selection seems over priced and the Italian wines don’t have any style comparisons to make choices easier. However food was very tasty, well presented and couldn’t be faulted.
