Pizza or cardboard with tomato sauce? 9/18/2010

Sadly said that if you do not know Italian cuisine then this is the place for you! Having experienced Macaroni Grill Italian food in Salt Lake City, Utah for the very first time, I have to say that I will not go to that restaurant again. Coming from Seattle, WA and knowing the food quality in the NorthWest, my expectations of fine Italian cuisine were shattered by the poor quality of ingredients used to make pizza at Macaroni Grill. Tonight, our menu consisted on two Margherita Pizza (Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil) served on thin crust. Coming from an Italian background, I know what to expect when I ordered this type of pizza. However, when my order was delivered I could not determine if what I got was a pizza or a flour tortilla with sauce and a few ultra thin cheese slices on it. The cardboard menu on the table was thicker than the pizza itself. I have experienced poor quality food before but nothing like it. The dough on this pizza was so hard and thin that it tasted like soda-crackers. I could play freeze-be with it and never notice the difference between pizza and the freeze-be. The crust was not hand-made. I can easily tell because the way it was flatten. Hand-made pizza dough (properly made) rises and the pizza maker (the cook) has to mold it by hand. This is not the case for Macaroni Grill (Yikes!). There are not desires to go back. Friends do not let friends eat at Macaroni Grill! more

Worse than the Olive Garden. YITZ! 3/3/2010

This was my last hope per finding an authentic Italian restaurant in Salt Lake City and I was very disappointed. The atmosphere at the ""Macaroni Grill"" is equivalent to a dentist chair in the middle of a bomb shelter. There is no architecture, style or ambiance. The setting is similar to a giant warehouse. The customers are escorted to a square wooden table (there are no booths). While dining, we rubbed elbows with our weird Mormon neighbors who, while drinking soda pop with their entree gave our bottle of wine a menacing look. The tables are so close together, it's like your included in the conversation with the party next to you. I ordered the eggplant and it was burnt around the edges and in the middle. After my meal, the waitress very hurriedly brought my bill and rushed off. I had to summon her again as we wanted a cup of coffee. When we were finally able to have our coffee, we sat at our table for 30 minute's drinking our coffee and finishing our wine as spirits aid the digestion. During this time period, the staff hovered over us like a nervous mother hen (heaven forbid someone takes the time to relax after their meal). There are no sardines or anchovies on the menu. There is no Risotto. There are no swordfish meatballs. No seafood salad and no octopus. This is far worse than the Olive Garden. At least at the Olive Garden there are comfortable booth's and partitions so that you have a little privacy. Rather than eat here, I recommend that you go to Millie's Burgers. Take along a C.D. player with the music of Luciano Pavarotti. The effect will be the same and you won't empty your pocket book. Pros: The soft ""Charmin"" toilet paper in the restroom. Cons: Dining here is like eating in a warehouse. more

Great Italian Food 11/19/2006

This is a centrally located chain restaurant that serves great Italian food. My particular favorite is the ""Build Your Own Pasta Bowl"" where you can select the type of pasta, sauce topping and meat. Portions are very large. All meals are served with a delicious, warm bread. Parking is limited, but valet parking is available. There can be a wait at peak times (before sporting events) so plan accordingly. Pros: Great Italian Food, ample portions, great service Cons: Limited parking, long wait to be seated during peak times more

Good stuff! 3/11/2003

Macaroni Grill is pretty good for an Italian chain restaurant. Try the Pasta Milano. It has hearty chunks of mushroom, chicken, and sundried tomatoes in it. Portions are hearty. This specific location tends to be insanely busy and noisy though. Pros: Vast menu, Heary portions, great tasting food Cons: crowded, not much parking, noisy more

A staple place 1/10/2003

Although the brushetta left something to be desired the lobster ravioli was absolutely delicious. more

Gut Bomb 7/9/2002

I am so sick of the chain italian, it is all terrible. And this place lives up to it. I mean it has an awsome location, but the food bland! more

Average Chain Italian 6/26/2002

In a town that is facinated with chain restaurants, and a town who thinks the Olive Garden is the best Italian food in town, this one is one of the better ones. For starters, this is a chain joint. Just as the Olive Garden is and others, this is not fine dining and it will never compete with the likes of Fresco, Grappa, Lugano, and others. But, if you are on a budget and want reliable and generic Italian food, then this is the place to go. Nothing stands out as exceptional on the menu, but you probably will not go wrong with most items. I recommend you split an entree as the portions can be large at times. Avoid sitting in the rear of the place near the kitchen as this area gets very loud, and avoid prime dining hours as too many families bring their 20 children here! Pros: Affordable, Decent Food Cons: Loud, Busy/Kids more
