Tucked away in the Omni Centre’s mall, this friendly, family-orientated venue is perfectly placed for a Playhouse pre-theatre fuel-up.
Perfectly placed for a Playhouse pre-theatre fuel-up, Tony Macaroni brings evenly priced, family-orientated dining to the masses. Tucked away in the Omni Centre’s mall, subtitled cinema on silent screens illuminates a spacious, contemporary-styled dining room with warm timber tones and brown leather booths. An all-day à la carte menu covers a vast amount of ground, from deep-fried arancini and mozzarella sticks with ketchup dip, to goat’s cheese-topped burgers and pizzas laden with pepperoni. Hearty portions of baby backribs smothered in barbecue sauce emerge from the fast-paced open kitchen, alongside rigatoni with meatballs and two dozen seafood or meaty mains. Soup and sandwich combos appear on a great value, office-friendly lunch offer, with a range of towering ice-cream sundaes rounding off the three-course Sunday set-price deal. With plenty of sister restaurants dotted around the country, this is a friendly, fill-you-up kind of place with more than enough choice to keep customers content.
