  • "Our food was phenomenal and our waitress was fantastic! The kitchen, however was REALLY slow and another waitress that checked in on us at one point left a lot to be desired..."
    Dined on 4/15/2014
  • "We originally had reservations for 7 but 2 more joined our party and even though it was extremely busy they accommodated us without any problem. One person in our party asked "what was on tap?" she directed him to the beer menu page of the menu. Since this page was missing my friend asked "do you have any IPA's" the waitress responded and said she didn't know what that was. The night continued to go south with our waitress forgetting to take my friends order and blaming it on the kitchen, bringing a meatball to someone that was a vegetarian that specifically asked for meatless sauce. Management made it right and gave us 20% off the bill but the whole experience was negative. Food was outstanding but that waitress needs better training."

  • "Enjoy this restaurant for dining with one friend or twelve. Their menu has so many options to enjoy! This particular evening we were a group of four and were able to enjoy several dishes. The best part is the food keeps on coming until you are ready to stop."

  • "Arrived a few minutes late for the reservation but was seated within 5 minutes, the waiter came over right away to take our order and the food came within 15 minutes. food was hot and just what the 4 in my party ordered. Waiter kept coming back to make sure we did not run out of anything and was very friendly."

  • "This place has great Italian food. If you're a group, do the family style. So much food. The bad thing that may come out of eating here is you may leave so full your stomach hurts for hours. Worth every bite though."

  • "my husband and i went there to celebrate our anniversary the service was really good. good food and good wine, but the table was to small and it was to noisy, they should make more room between tables..im totally going back and i would recomend it"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Our food was excellent. The bruschetta appetizer was delicious, as were our entrees. My hubby had the lasagna and absolutely loved it. The country style pasta I had was soooo good! We each had enough to bring home, and both were just as good the second day. The food came out really quickly, which surprised us. It doesn't seem like you would be able to linger here due to high table turnover, but we didn't mind too much. We would definitely go back."

  • "Not great tonight, 4-5-14, I have been coming to Maggiano's for many, many years. It is my "go to" spot for relatives and friends from out of town. I even brought my cousin for Italy there recently in December, and he thought it was great. With a reservation, we were our usual party of 4, and it seemed like we were ignored. The service was very slow. Although there were four of us, we were only served three chicken parmasean portions in the family style meal and a very, very small bowl of fettucine alfredo. The waitstaff started out finem but then it took so long to get the main course, ~ 25 to 30 minutes that two in our party wanted to leave. I will come back, and hope that my favorite restaurant in Boston is better the next time."

  • "I had a gift card so my boyfriend and I decided to stop in for dinner. It was busy but our food came promptly. Our only issue was a bit of delay/confusion with a drink, but in the end the staff was friendly about it. It's not a bad restaurant, but certainly nothing I'll be craving anytime soon."

  • "I've been coming here for lots of special occasions and the food is always amazing. I recommend the four cheese ravioli! for the price you can't go wrong."

  • "We went with just a few people for a small low-key birthday dinner for a friend, and it was just what we hoped it would be. Nice hearty Italian food, fun exciting atmosphere with lots of groups and families around; good and lively. The food was delicious and the waiter was great. Would go back again. (Three of us got the cheese ravioli which we all loved)."

  • "Feels a bit like cattle call when you first come in. Hostess could have been more personable. It's loud too but fun. Not a "romantic" spot. The waiter was friendly, helpful and attentive even though it was busy. Someone in my party has serious food allergies and they were very good about double checking on ingredients for us. The food is very good but enormous portions. Literally 3 meals in one! We took a lot home. Veal picata was very good, gnocchi was great. The special appetizer was ok; it wasn't what we expected at all. Not bad but not really what was described. Sangria was tasty. It's a fun place for kids or before /after a show. Restrooms are downstairs and a walk. Not really good for elderly folks."

  • "Food was wonderful, service was great we were going to a show and they made sure we were done and out on time without rushing. Made the night very enjoyable."

  • "We visited Maggiano's on the way to a comedy show and it was excellent. We eat out frequently, so we can be a bit critical when food and service doesn not meet expectations, but in this case the food and the service exceeeded expecations. Highly recommend Maggiano's--it was well worth it."

  • "I took my girlfriend here for our anniversary and was blown away by the service. The staff was incredibly polite and attentive, the food was amazing, and they surprised us with a complimentary dessert with "Happy Anniversary" written across the plate in chocolate. Our waiter, Tomas, did an excellent job and helped to make our anniversary a great night. I will absolutely be back at Maggiano's."

  • "Perfect place for a large group. No one will give you a hard time about needing to "be somewhere". They gave us suggestions, tended to all our needs. Service was outstanding. Food was amazing. SOOO good. The salad alone had me hooked. DELICOIUS!!! We did family style for 12 of us and had leftovers. Wine was great. Service is truly impecable!!!"

  • "Went for quick business dinner with out-of-town guest. The lighting is really too dark--number of people (including me) had to use cellphones to read the menu. Food was good, but not outstanding. Portions are excellent. I think that there are better Italian options in Boston. However, if you near the Common, it is fine for the price. Bar is extremely small."

  • "My wife and I had a great dinner here last Saturday before a show at the Wilbur. The food and wine were perfect, the service was great, and Lonnie, the manager, visited with us and made us feel very welcome. We are already looking forward to our next visit."

  • "I made a reservation for 9:30pm and they weren't ready for us until 9:45pm. I also stated when I made my reservation that it was a birthday celebration, but none of that happened. They did not come and wish my daughter a happy birthday. I didn't feel that I had to remind the staff when I wanted it to be a surprise? It was told at the time of the reservation. I called and spoke to the person on the phone the person stated they would note that for my reservation. I noticed they sang for others in the restaurant. Would definately not recommend for birthday celebration especially that you might have to remind them, when it supposed to be a surprise."

  • "Maggiano's is always a good spot to break bread with friends get full and just overall have a good time. I will always reccomend eating here if you want something quick, and delicious without breaking the bank."

  • "I had chicken Marsala, and I must say as a huge fan of this dish in general, I wasn't too happy with my choice of this here. Usually I start to pick off a few mushrooms because I love mushrooms. I realize biting into the mushrooms they weren't as juicy or flavorful as I usually like them. The combination of the mushroom and the chicken Marsala sauce reminded me of something out of a Campbell's cream of mushroom can. This dish comes with a side of angel hair pasta, and my pasta was a tad bit dry. I wish they just put the chicken Marsala ON TOP of the angel hair pasta instead of separate. It's not that I was too lazy to mix it, I just didn't expect it to come separate. Consistency of the warmth would've been better if they were together."

  • "We went to celebrate my husband birthday after enjoying a show from the Boston Ballet. Service was excellent, as usual. Our 3 girls always love it here. They even asked us if we were on our way to a show and under a time constraint. They were great!"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "I had originally planned to have a bigger group, and last minute a few people cancelled. It was nice of the staff to wait, and they were really excellent at accomodating us and moving us to a smaller table. The free huge piece of cake was delicious for my boyfriend's birthday and he couldn't have been happier with the delicious food. Thank you so much!!"
