    Maggiano's has a new lighter side menu. Two of us tried the lower calorie chicken piccatta and it was very good. The absolutely delicious item was a butternut squash ravioli that my husband ordered.

    Our server was less then good, bread came, food came 2 minutes later, glasses didn't get filled unless ask, interruptions during the time we were served our food. Came in for a tasting per the web site reservation, but when we got there they didn't know about it. Some many interruptions while eating to discuss this. Not professional. Food was ok, but not great.

    Whenever we need a "go to" place for a special meal we can always count on the quality of food and service at Maggiano's. The atmosphere is always vibrant but not too loud. The food is delicious and the wine selection is quite nice. Their desserts should not be missed! We always like coffee with our dessert and have found that it's always lukewarm and not hot. Next time we'll ask for "hot" coffee.

    Apathic service. Had to ask for kids menu, then only one brought for two children. Not enough bread plates on table. Children ordered adult meal and split. Needed to ask for plates to serve it onto. Noted on our reservation we were coming for daughter's birthday. Nothing mentioned to her about this at all. Disappointing event all around.

    While visiting Austin we were really in the mood for Italian. I've been to the Los Angeles location and this location didn't disappoint. The atmosphere was vibrant and nice soft lighting made for a lovely evening. Booth was very comfortable. Food fresh and plentiful. Service just right. No wine list. We'll definitely be back next time we're in town.

    Maggiano's far exceeds the norm for chain restaurants. The food is well prepared with fresh ingredients. The service is mostly attentive and seemingly the servers are not assigned to too many tables so they are better able to provide the attention necessary.

    Dined early to celebrate my birthday. Friendly staff as we entered restaurant and promptly seated by hostess. Waiter was quick to greet us and take drink orders. Offered suggestions for meal and was very gracious regardless of our choices. Shared caesar salad and chose chicken piccata (lighter side) and parmesan crusted tilapia. Both were well presented and ample portions. Food was delicious and left little room for dessert so we passed this trip. Always enjoy visits here and look forward to the next opportunity to dine with them.

    The main coarses were delicious and well portioned. However, the "large" Italian salad priced at $11.50 was woefully disappointing--a skimpy portion of iceberg lettuce, 4 grape tomatoes, 3-4 kalamata olives and a few croutons-- a major rip off for the price!! Is this their way of subsidizing the the eat-a-meal, take one home program?

    Food: nothing special... just ok! Reserve: when you arrive with no reservations they tell you to wait for at least half an hour. No problem. But, if you use reservation service on smartphone... well what a surprise you will be able to find a table imediatelly! So... There are table available... weird... I hate lies... so... go to another place! Romanos, Carinos... Best options!

    We come here often to celebrate Birthdays. The service tonight was absolutely fabulous. Our waiter made our dining experience over the top. Called my daughter Princess "even though she is a young adult". Made her birthday that much more special. I tried the Lighter Chicken Picata and it was superb. Will be back soon !!!

    I've always enjoyed the food and ambiance here. The only negative this time was the service. One member of our party got the wrong food twice, once because our waiter misunderstood her and once because he grabbed the wrong food from the window; another waiter figured the latter one out and brought her the correct one. Also, when I got home, I learned that my take-home pasta was not correct. However, all my food was very good, even the incorrect one, and it was otherwise an enjoyable experience. I'll just be hoping for a different waiter the next time around.

    They have new menu items that are amazing. I had quit eating high calorie, high everything foods 2.5 years ago while dropping 60 pounds. When you are preparing to compete in a Mini Triathlon you are conscious of the fuel you consume. I had given up Maggiano's except for very special occasions. Their new menu has put them back on my list. The Chicken Marsala was one of the best things I've tasted in a very long time. In making their lighter fare the quality was a priority and it shows.

    I have looked for some time to find a place that stays open past 8 and still has good food selections, ambience, and descent service. Maggianos not only met the minimum of what I was looking for but went above and beyond by having fantastic food at a reasonable price, open late and has exceptional service. The ambience was fun and the place was hopping, even late. They offer valet parking for $6.00 and they were easy to get to. They are located in the Domain and who doesn't like going there??? I highly recommend it to anyone, unless you're allergic to garlic:<). We had to get take some home because there was so much food on the plate. The entree was just as good the next day and the reheating instructions were right on!

    This visit was my third. The first time I was a guest of some friends. The next time I took a group on a Sunday afternoon. This visit on Tuesday was for a birthday lunch for a friend. The next planned visit is a staff dinner on Friday, September 12th. All my guests have not been to Maggiano's before - so this should be fun. I love the variety and the desserts.

    I always like going to Maggiano's when the family needs to get out for good Italian food. We get the "Chef's Choice" meals where you buy one and get one to take home. That always results in great leftovers. It is the best value for my dollar. The food is consistently good as is the service.

    We had 20 or so people in our party and Maggiano's came to mind from previous visits when we had seen other big parties. They were completely ready for us; we were able to enjoy our reunion with out-of-towner friends and eat pretty good food. The kids were happy, too. There's something for everyone. But most importantly, in our case, we were able to get together as a big group and have everyone come out happy and satisfied.

    We like the informal atmosphere and delicious food at Maggiano's, but what we love is the Classic Pasta deal. With the large portions, we always take home part of our in-restaurant order, and with the extra take-home serving, we're talking four meals for under $15! Can't beat that, especially with the range of selections!

    Before now, I had only dined at Maggiano's for dinner, never lunch. Recently, we dined on a Monday afternoon at 2:00. We enjoyed the same delicious food and romantic atmosphere, but it was a much quieter dining experience. We had ample choice of seating, and the attentive waiter made us feel like we were the only ones in the restaurant. It was a wonderful meal, and we will definitely return at this time of day for a repeat performance!

    Met a childhood friend (50+ years!) and caught up with each others' lives while eating one of the wonderful classic pastas. The portions were generous, and we each took another delicious meal home for the next day, along with leftovers of our dinner meals. The ambience was relaxed, and the noise level was conducive to chatting during the meal and after. What a great place to dine!

    We arrived for our 7:15 pm reservation on time. It took about 10 minutes for us to be seated. After that we waited 15 minutes the waitress came by and said she would be with us soon, at 30 minutes my husband asked the host for a table with a wait person. Right after that the waitress came over and asked for our drink order. About 5 minutes after that the manager came over and apologized and one of the staff went to get us some water. After that the experence improved and the food was great, the brochetta there is excellent and our meal was very good. The manager ended up comping us the meal so in the end they did the right thing and we had an nice experience.
