Romano’s Macaroni Grill Calories

As you can see from the above Macaroni Grill Nutrition Info table, there are a lot of hidden calories on this menu. What you think is healthy and low calorie, might not be. That’s why we have this info in the first place, because we know how easy it is to get stung by this info.

For instance, the following dishes, although they look fairly innocuous and even healthy on the surface, are all over 1,000 calories.

  • Carmela’s Chicken
  • Shrimp Portofino
  • Eggplant Parmesan
  • Cremini Pork Shank

To give you an idea of what that means, it puts them in line with some of the biggest burgers at some of the most calorific burger chains. As you can see from our Hardee’s Nutrition page and our Red Robin Nutrition page, for instance, the average calorie count for their 1/4lb and even some of their 1/2lb burgers is around 700. Some of them are just 500.

What’s more, many of the bigger items on the McDonalds Menu and the White Castle Menu are even smaller. In fact, in some cases you can get half a dozen burgers with the same calorie count as one meal from Macaroni Grill.

Of course, many of those calories are “better”. There are more good fats. There are more healthy carbs, fiber, vitamins and minerals. But still, if calories are all you’re interested in then you may want to opt for a burger chain instead. You may not be actually getting more for your money, but it will certainly feel that way.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Alternatives

Macaroni Grill Calories

There are a number of restaurants very similar to Romano’s Macaroni Grill. America has really taken to Italian food, from pizzas like those on the Dominos Menu to higher quality pastas and other Italian favorites from Olive Garden.

Typically, Macaroni Grill is considered cheaper and not as good as the Olive Garden and a few other premium Italian chains. Personally, we love them both. There is certainly many more great dishes on the Olive Garden Menu than the Macaroni Grill menu, but there are still some winning dishes here.

One of the main reasons OG gets the nod, however, is because it’s much healthier. When you use better ingredients, fresher ingredients and a higher quality olive oil, it is a little more expensive, but it’s also much better for you. The same applies to a few other higher priced chains in the United States.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Vegetarian

There are plenty of vegetarian options on the Macaroni Grill menu. As you can see from our Macaroni Grill Menu Prices page, and even from the Macaroni Grill Nutrition Info table above, the majority of their dishes don’t contain meat. That’s actually very common with Mediterranean cuisine.

They are heavy on seasonal vegetables, oils and other vegetarian ingredients. Of course, Macaroni Grill have tried to cater more for the American market, so there is more processed meat, fish and red meat here than there would perhaps be in a traditional Italian restaurant, but there are still many meat-free dishes.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Vegan

Macaroni Grill Calories

Not only is a lot of Italian food vegetarian, but it’s also vegan. However, that’s not the case with Macaroni Grill. There are a lot of dairy based and meat based products used, and it seems like many of their dishes use either one or the other.

There are options though. If you order their simple pastas, add a red sauce and then choose a few vegetables, you’ll have a vegan dish. Their preprepared dishes are rarely vegan, but if you state your preference then they will let you ask for a specific dish.

You can also choose from a selection of salads. As long as you ask for salads without the cheese or the croutons, then you should be good. Just be vigilant when making your choice and make sure you double-check with your server before placing your order.

You should also bear in mind that there may be some contamination issues with some of the products, so this is something you should also double-check.

Romano’s Macaroni Grill Gluten-Free

There has been some controversy over Macaroni Grill gluten-free options. You may not see it on our Macaroni Grill Nutrition Info table, and that’s because it seems to come and go. They put a gluten free pasta on the menu, and then shortly after they took it off, only to add it again. We’re not sure what the issue is, but they can’t seem to make their mind up regarding this.

There are other gluten free options on the Macaroni Grill menu, of course. You can order some of their salads and even some of their other sides. However, you don’t go to an Italian restaurant just to sit and poke at salad leaves. You want some pasta or some pizza, and there just seems to be no telling if they have any of this on the menu or if they will be adding it back anytime soon.

So, check with our Macaroni Grill menu prices page (linked above) and keep an eye on the Macaroni Grill Nutrition Info above. We will also mention it on this section if they make a statement regarding the permanent placing of gluten-free options on the menu.

And as always, you should also double check with your server. It’s not unusual for restaurants to offer gluten free options these days and most servers know what you’re talking about if you ask. So, feel free to phone them up in advance and make an enquiry.
