Macaroni Grill is a good italian chain restaurant, and I think they've gotten better over the years. I love their make-your-own-pasta deal, where you can pick from several different kinds of pasta, sauces, and toppings. It's great! The meal always starts with warm fresh bed and olive oil dipping sauce. You can add a really nice salad for $1.99, and don't forget to order the table wine. You're on the honor system, but it's only a few dollars per glass!
