I came here for mine and my husband's first wedding anniversary in Saturday night. The menu is clearly labelled for vegan, gluten free, low FODMAP and normal menu which I thought was amazing. The food was delicious, the restaurant is lovely, the staff are friendly, I highly recommend!
Lovely atmosphere, lovely wait staff and amazing food. I had the low fodmap vegan cannelloni and it was wonderful to eat such a delicious meal and still feel great afterwards!
Delicious and perfect for a vegan/non-vegan couple as we were both beyond satisfied. I’ll be dreaming about that pasta for the rest of my life
The Food and service was amazing! Would recommend to everyone!
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.
The restaurant was quite nice and the food was absolutely delicious. It was on the pricier end, considering the positions weren’t large. After half of an entre and one main meal, I wasn’t full. However, I would still come back for a special dinner because the food is worth it. The staff are nice but there is a lot of waiting for someone to approach you. Once we entered we waited for a little bit before being approached and weren’t sure of what to do, we also waited a while to order mains and then again to order dessert. However, the wait time for food was great, not long at all.
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!
