Romano's Macaroni Grill

Romano's is a super fun place to eat with their Italian music and delicious aromas. They also offer quite a few dishes that you can pick and choose between to make a healthy meal that doesn't kill your calorie count. Here are some of the items that I've found diet-worthy.

Shared Appetizers at Romano's

If you're out with friends or a date then it's natural to split an appetizer to munch off of. These are appetizers under 500 calories so that you can munch your half for less than 250 calories.

  • Spicy Ricotta Meatballs - 370 calories - 1/2 serving 185 calories

Sandwiches at Romano's 

As they are anywhere else, sandwiches are calorie rich, making them something to avoid. Romano's does, however, off a Roasted Turkey Sandwich that is only 600 calories. Pair that with a Fresh Greens Side Salad and you're only at 710 calories!
