HOUSTON, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Romano's Macaroni Grill offers guests a big night out at affordable prices with its new $15 four-course, Italian trattoria-inspired tasting menu and half-price Italian house wines for a limited time beginning Oct. 21.

The menu of chef-selected dishes offers guests outstanding choices at an astounding value. After starting with an aperitivo course of Ravioli Tostati, diners can enjoy an insalata course of classic Caesar salad. Next up, the primi (pasta) course includes a choice of fresh Spaghetti Napolitana with Italian tomatoes, garlic and fresh basil, or Fettuccini Alfredo with creamy parmesan sauce.

The fourth course is the secondi course, featuring any two of Macaroni Grill's unique Spiedini, grilled skewers of sausage, chicken, steak or shrimp done the Italian way, topped with house-made verde sauce. A slight additional charge applies for steak or shrimp.

Macaroni Grill also is offering an incredible half-price deal on its house wines through the end of the year. Served on the restaurant's unique honor system, the Valoroso Toscana wines, imported from Italy's Tuscany region, will be just $2.75 a glass or $15 for a 1.5-liter bottle. The rosso is light and fresh with notes of red fruits, berries and spice for a well-balanced, easy-to-drink option that pairs well with pasta and grilled meats. The bianco is perfect for lighter fare such as salads, seafood and poultry with its fruity hints of fresh flowers and lively acidity.

"We've elevated the standard coursed meal and added Italian flair with a delicious, satisfying pasta course, and our wine special adds to the affordable indulgence," said Vice President of Marketing Kristen Temple. "Our new, expertly crafted tasting menu and half-price wines give guests an opportunity to uncork the night with a memorable dining experience at a great value."
