Diner Reviews
  • "Stopped by for dinner on a Saturday evening. Glad we made reservations ahead and was seated right away. Attentive staff and the food quality is consistent. Very accommodating for families with kids. Highly recommend it!"

  • "Once we sat down at our table, our waitress was moments behind. I've never had such great service. My glass was never empty and she was continually making sure everything was up to par. Would definitely go back again."

  • "We ordered wine when we sat. It took forever to bring the wine glasses over but no wine. We thought she was getting it but she didn't until we asked where our wine was. Not sure why she "thought we'd wait for out food". She never asked us nor did we tell her we would. We ordered a bottle that we couldn't finish because it came so late. The Marsala sauce was starchy and not good. I've had much better."

  • "The food as always was excellent with more than one can comfortably eat at one sitting. The server did not remember the take home pasta dish and could not be found after we paid our bill. We had to locate a manager who took care of it right away. It seems like the servers are always in too much of a hurry."

  • "We celebrated our 52nd anniversary at Maggiano's, a favorite restaurant of ours. We were enticed to go there by a $10 coupon they sent us in recognition of our anniversary, and a special entrée they were featuring at this time. We were given the usual good service and food plus extra special treatment from our excellent waitress, Amy, who took pictures of us and brought us a dessert treat, too!. All in all, it was a pleasant, memorable evening and we'll definitely go back! Our table was waiting when we arrived, and was just what I had requested through OpenTable. Thanks!"

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Maggianos is great! If you're looking for an affordable meal for 2 or for 20, this place is great. My boyfriend and I always get Marco's meal which is an appetizer, 2 classic pastas, dessert PLUS 2 classic pastas to take home for $40.00! They're also adding a signature pasta to the pastas if choice every month, and this month it was the Rigatoni. We had two side salads, our two dishes and the Creme brûlée was phenomenal. It is one of our favorite places!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Generally a good experience. Seated right away and good server. Food from the classics menu was ok. Eggplant was fair, didn't care for the spaghetti. Stuffed ravioli's were better and the crab and shrimp cannelloni was even better but a bit too much sauce."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Maggianos has excellent food and the most important part is that is consistent every time I go. For the price you pay no one can get closer to the quality, ambiance, and amount of food. Every time we invite somebody there they're always impressed."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "You can't beat the Special for Two. You get extra entrees to take home. Quality of food is good. We had a great server. The Shortbread Lemon Cookies are my favorite desert."

  • "Great customer service and food was great! Would recommend. To all family and friends."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Maggiano's is always excellent, friendly wait staff, good seating, and of course great food. I had the chef's special scallop dish and everyone else took advantage of the pasta meal where you can eat one and take one home."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."

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

    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "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."

  • "Memorable evening with friends at the best booth for 4 in the place. Extremely well trained and caring staff blend with first rate food and location at very fair prices."

  • "It was a nice place to go on a romantic date. Wish we could've been attended to faster but yet a little reasonable since it was pretty busy. But still a very good time."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "Great Father's day 2014 dinner. Had reservations and was seated immediately. Great service, awesome food. Even though it was terribly busy our glass never was empty."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "Yummy versions of classics: steak, flatbread pizza, and salmon. White tablecloth but comfortable ambiance."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "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."

  • "I asked Kim to marry me at Maggiano's last Saturday night and everything could have not been more perfect! Had 7 guests and the food, drink and wait staff were superb! One of my favorite Austin restaurants!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "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."
