Villa Macri Ristorante Ratings and Reviews

Horrible food and while the food was taken care of off the bill never saw a manager presence nor come and talk to us. It was our 18 year wedding anniversary and was hoping for a memorable experience it was nothing near that. The server was apologetic and it wasn't her fault but this was our first and last time here. We did order dessert and the carrot cake was amazing and that was about it. Very bland and not full of flavor at all for the main course and also over cooked.

It was a ND football weekend. Macri's is a gem in Granger, In. It is absolutely beautiful inside. Different atmospheres also. There is a theatre with large TV's. and a pub environment, a dining room with a more subdued atmosphere, a lively bar area, an outside location also. The Villa itself has olive bars, wine tasting and lots more. Everyone was friendly. No matter where you eat, there is a menu available from all the restaurants inside. The prices are reasonable.
We had 3 different meals and they were all great. Chicken parm showed the great sauce and nice portion, Old Chicago includes outstanding Italian sausage and the wrap was perfect. You have to go to the Gelato bar for dessert! Wow.

As always, our food was delicious. We've tried several food choices from your menu and have enjoyed every one. We were pleased to be able to be seated in the bar right away. The booths in the bar are very large and comfortable. Our waiter was friendly and served us well.

A group of 6 friends had a wonderful meal, then relaxed with wine for a couple of hours. The staff was attentive, but let us enjoy each other. The food was wonderful and just perfect for our varied tastes. A great place to reconnect!
A good meal at reasonable price
We were here for Mother's Day celebration. Good was good and service was as we expect for this restaurant. Strange when we were presented our ordered bottle of wine and asked whether we wanted to try the wine; I said yes , and was very surprised when the server poured EVERYONE a third glass of wine and put in front of us. At that point, I simply said "it is fine." They clearly do not all a lot of bottles of wine. The decor is really good and lots of choices in terms of style.
Disappointed in Villa Macri
Made reservations for 11 (5 children, 6 adults) for 5:00 p.m. Entered and seated promptly. Took several minutes for server to come to table, but very few other diners were noticed. The appetizers came quickly. Salads weren't too terribly long in coming, But from then on, service went downhill. Asked for a pitcher of water, so we could have refills. We were told she needed pitcher for her other tables. Main course was delivered about 45 minutes later. Asked 3 times for take out boxes. Flagged her down once again, and told her we needed to leave (no time for the dessert we were looking forward to having to celebrate birthday) Told her it was taking way too long. She said she got busy, did the best she could. When she finally returned with boxes and bill, she immediately said she included the gratuity. I understand that for large groups, it is common practice to add gratuity, but she did not deserve the generous 20 per cent she gave herself. Food was not exceptional, just "okay". Will NOT be going back!
Big place, nice ambiance bit service slow.
Had a group of 10 and had plenty of tables to accommodate and room for our group. Surprisingly, although the restaurant was not too busy we rarely saw our waitress. Drink orders were very slow and last order was delivered as we were ready to leave. I will give it another try in hopes this was just a bad night for them

Sat in the sports room. Excellent location for game watching. Their wings were delicious. They were crispy and sauced well. All of our entrees were very good; stuffed shrimp, spaghetti w/meatballs, lasagna, chicken Marsala. Service was very good.

Made a reservation for 20 on a Friday night just a few days in advance. We were seated in a private dining area. Having heard from a friend that service for large parties could be sub par we told the waitress in advance that some of the guests had a 4+ hour drive after dinner. She was very accommodating. However a couple of us had to remind her of missing drink orders. The food was decent but at least 2 of the meals at my end of the table were over cooked to the point where the breading on the meat was burned. Unfortunately we didn't have time to send them back to the kitchen. One BIG plus is that they split the checks accordingly. But BEWARE, since it was a large party, a 20% tip was included in each of the bills.
ambiance best in circular dining area
sat I circular dining area & ambiance was perfect. bar area looked fun w/ plenty of TV's. big rectangular room looked uninviting. glad we did not get sat there!
service was good...always attentive.
food was good. portions could have been a little larger.
Great celebration place
We had a group of 8, ages 9 t0 75. We were celebrating a birthday. Everyone had a meal they enjoyed. We had everything from chicken tenders for the young one to Scallops form the old guy (me). The waitress was very attentive and filled our order perfectly. She made sure to keep the soft drinks refilled and asked if we wanted more beer or other drinks. All in all it was a very successful birthday celebration.
The food was great, and we had a good time--but that was only because we enjoy being around each other. Our waitress was incredibly rude. She scoffed at many of our requests, and blatantly said no when we asked for simple things such as bread or water for the table.
Great new find
Football weekend at Notre Dame. Tough to get a last minute reservation for 10 anywhere -- but Villa Macri is large enough to accommodate. First time experience for us and it was wonderful. Food, service and ambience were great. They also have a sport theatre room that is awesome --- giant TV screen in the middle with at least 25 tables and booths --- has to be a lot of fun to eat and watch a big game there. We'll be back and we highly recommend.
Marginal and not a foodie destination
Thought the wine list would have been more extensive and the decor was gaudy. The Seafood Alfredo was good but was lacking in the cook out the scallops and lobster. The Chicken Parmesan left everything to be desired. I could have made it better in my own kitchen. Looking for a nice Italian restaurant for a quiet anniversary celebration and we left incredibly disappointed. I will say the service was very good for a median level restaurant.
Stopped here for dinner with my daughter on the way back from Chicago. It looks impressive from the outside but once you enter, the space is oddly broken up. We dined in the rear near a very large, very dark bar. Service was ok. The food was definitely not authentic Italian. It was just off - not sure how else to describe. Don't waste your time or money here.
The crab cakes were like flavored mush. Not one piece of crab. The scallop/risotto dish had 4 medium scallops on a pile of tasteless mushy risotto. At an average of 25 dollars per plate, we were so dissatisfied. Service was good but we will NEVER go back for the food.
A hit for ND graduation
Villa Macri is a hidden gem. Away from the hustle and bustle around campus and Grape Road, it was a perfect fit for our graduation celebration. Our large party was well taken care of. We especially appreciated the gluten free menu. All of the food was great - especially my filet mignon which cut like butter. It would be a great place to head after a football game. I will definitely come again!
Had a small retirement party for a friend and enjoyed being located in the back round room. Enjoyed drinks and dinner. At first I thought the waitress was very good because she was friendly and informative. However I drink a lot of water and although asking her for a refills a few times, I got no water. That was very disappointing. Although we frequent your establishment on a regular basis, this important detail turned me off.
Wonderful experience and great customer service
Great food, wine and shopping. We loved the atmosphere and customer service. Cannot wait to return. Visited a few years ago and did not remember how great it was. Definately a new hang out place for my family in and out of town. Used to frequent Macri's Downtown south bend as well. Must come back soon.
