Diner Reviews
  • "Food was ok....restaurant was rather dirty for being located at the domain. There was dust everywhere, and ceiling was filthy. Server was ok but seemed very nervous (maybe new). We had not been there in a while, and it was not as good or as nice as we remembered it being."

  • "The food was delicious. We ordered the buy one meal take another one home for $12.95. It worked out perfectly."

  • "This will b my new Italian spot. Olive Garden has nothing on this. We chose Buca's over this for our family b-day outing. It was good but Maggiano's is so so so much better. The flavors really come through in the food not watered down. U can taste the freshness. Our server was the best. Ask for Levi."

  • "It was pretty packed when we went at 7PM on Friday and very loud. Other than that, the service was great, the food was great, and the portions are always insanely large!"

  • "We asked to sit in a quiet area (via opentable special request for the 5 of us for a business dinner) and we're put in the center of the restaurant with a tight squeeze near a pillar - hardly quiet. The food was fine, the drinks were good and the good-will realized by supporting the "make a wish foundation" is admirable. The waiter service was very good, but paired with OK food, and a hostess with less then the mostess, prompts me to give a 3 instead of 4 stars."

  • "We've been to Maggiano's three times, twice for lunch and once for dinner. The consistency of service and of the food is what makes me want to continue going. The food is very appetizing and comes in large portions to share easily. A good variety of menu options and quality ingredients enabled everyone in my family to leave there much satisfied."

  • "Like every other fake Italian chain restaurant, this place has black & white photo and decor that are intended to evoke a bygone era of Little Italy and what ever other random associations you have. This place goes a step farther with the decor. It looks like the inside of grand central station in the 1940's. So it is basically like eating in the Pirates of the Caribbean Restaurant at Disneyland, only it's the fake Godfather set. Cafe del Pace that just feels fake. Getting down to it, the wine list is not good. They only Sauv Blanc they had was Nobilio, is this a restaurant or a 7-11. I got the lobster carbonara. It was like someone took spaghetti and melted a stick of butter in it, then poured a cup of cream on top and added garlic powder."

  • "Took my family and parents here for fathers day. Every dish was delicious and there was more than we could possible eat. Couldn't have asked for better service. Mom said it was the best restaurant she had ever been to, and I agree. If you like Italian, you can't go wrong here. The 'Family Style' choices are the best deal around and they just keep bringing it."

  • "As always. we enjoyed another fine meal on Father's Day. We've had the Marco's Meal many, many times & love it, but decided to have the Two can Dine @ $60 because 2 of our favorite entrees, Chicken Saltimbocca & Chicken Florentine were available. My husband always loves taking 2 items home because he can continue to enjoy Maggiano's for the rest of the week. Our server, Jeff Lancaster, was excellent & made us feel very comfortable. He assisted in our menu selections & offered opinions on his favorite dishes. We especially enjoyed the Berry Tiramisu for dessert with our Cappucinos. Looking forward to when our son comes home on Liberty from the Marines so we can treat him to another special evening at his favorite restaurant."

  • "Most restaurants would skim on service and food quality on special event or days. Not this one. The service is impeccable and the food is always excellent. Ask for Midge next time you go. She is the best there!"

  • "When you ask most kids "Where do you want to go eat?," they usually answer with some fast food restaurant. But our kids always say Maggiano's. The food is always fantastic, and we love the take home classic pasta. It is a little pricey, but it's worth it. The Rigatoni D is our favorite."

  • "This is our second visit. There will be MANY more. The first time we had the lobster Carbonara. Sauce was unbelievable -- a perfect match for a rich seafood such as lobster. This time the mushroom ravioli, one had simple spaghetti and meat sauce, and the other grilled shrimp with lemon orzo and lemon-aoli sauce. Each sauce was different, and again a perfect match to the main ingredient. Nothing "from a jar" here -- all done from scratch, with a grand vision in mind. We dine out a fair amount. This is top drawer."

  • "Food was excellent, our server was very attentive however, even though we had a reservation, we were forgotten by the hostess at the front desk. We stood and watched many couples come in, after us, and get seated right away. I finally asked the hostess if the "beeper" she gave us was working because we hadn't been paged; she said the beeper was working; no apology for our wait; although the food was excellent, our experience at the front desk ruined what could have been a lovely Father's Day celebration."

  • "This is a lovely restaurant with a very enjoyable ambience. The lighting lowers in the evening and contributes to a very low noise level. All the food is delicious and beautifully presented. The friendly staff offers incredible service. This is a very affordable restaurant with a high class feel."

  • "We love coming to the place. The service is generally acceptable and attentive. The food is always good and fresh, and I love the fact you can take home an extra meal if you want on the Classic Pastas."

  • "Overall, the food was great. We especially enjoyed the Linguini di Mare. Our only complaint was the attentiveness of our waitress. For some reason, she never inquired about refilling our drinks or seeing if everything was OK. I am not sure if part of the reason for this type of customer service is when a party of diners does not order alcoholic drinks. You can visibly see the disappointment in the wait staff's face."

  • "Ambiance was really nice and the furnishings were really nice, however, we did have some issues with one of the plates we ordered. My girlfriend and I were celebrating our one year anniversary and I decided to surprise her with dinner at Maggiano's. I made a reservation about 4-5 days in advance for this special occasion, yet when we got to the restaurant, we were seated in a booth that was closest to the bathroom and a high-traffic area for the waitstaff....not very romantic. Then we ordered dinner...my gf ordered a plate featuring Salmon that was served extremely quickly (within 5-10 minutes of ordering) but was extremely dry and hard to eat. We had to return the plate in exchange for a well prepared piece of salmon which she enjoyed"

  • "Once again, fantastic food from Maggianos. The service was not as great as previous times, but there were some large parties there, which seemed to keep most of the staff swamped. We will be back though, the food is simply great!"

  • "My family and I love going to Maggiano's for special occasions. The food never disappoints, but our waiter was horrible. Kevin was uninterested in serving us.. He did not give us plates, balsamic and olive oil for our bread, or even ask if we wanted dessert. Instead he gave us the check before we were finished and was very rude to us. We will return, but will make sure that Kevin is not our server."

  • "Our first visit to Manggiano's for individual dining. The atmosphere was traditional N.Y. Italian with Sinatra as the background music. Our waiter was enthusiastic and helpful. The entrees were well-presented; the portions were good-sized, but not overwhelming. My wife's Shrimp Scampi was flavorful and light. My Salmon Capri was a great mixture of Italian (olives) and Middle Eastern textures (yogurt and cucumber). We had the lemon cookies as a light desert for a meal. My wife liked the cookies so much she ordered a dozen to take home. Maggiano's has great food in a great setting. "

  • "Our waitress was top notch....8 family members dinned family style for a "college graduation celebration" on evening of May 9th !! Appetizers were excellent !! Main courses were "very disappointing"....medallions we're not tender and did not have any flavor or sauce/gravy !! Did not like the "green sauce" on the ravioli !! Other two main courses were over cooked & the pasta was mushy !! Dessert was excellent !! Had given Maggiano's several days advance notice of " celebration ".... After spending Over $400...there was not "any acknowledgement" to the graduate !!"

  • "I have found when ever celebrating a holiday or a Birthday, the guests always enjoy Maggiano's restaurant. Where else can you go, eat all you want for a reasonable price and be treated like you are at a neighborhood restaurant where they want and need you to come back."
