No more macaroni grilling

Daily Bulletin columnist David Allen writes about the closure of the Romano’s Macaroni Grill in Rancho Cucamonga because of slow sales. He mentions that the West Covina location is closing for the same reason.

I was surprised. You would think that the West Covina restaurant would have tremendous sales. It’s next to a insanely-popular movie theater and across the street from the West Covina mall. Then again, the last time I went to the Macaroni Grill was at least a year ago…

Macaroni Grill didn’t necessarily have the most amazing Italian food, but it was good. The menu had all the traditional favorites, and the restaurant was casual enough for a weeknight dinner but nice enough for a special occasion. Now that it’s closing, where else can you find Italian food in the area?

Tulipano’s in Azusa
Giovanni’s in downtown Covina
Macaroni Grill in Rowland Heights/Industry (wonder if that one will close, too)
Avolio’s in Covina
Artie’s Pizza in Covina
Johnny Carino’s in Covina
El Appetiz in Baldwin Park
Olive Garden in Industry
Spaghetti Eddie’s in Glendora
