    While spending a long weekend with my family in Boston, we went to Maggianos for dinner. The food was delicious. We shared a family style cesar salad and it was amazing not too much garlic! I would highly recommend making a reservation. Also want to add ghat service was excellent

    Excellent service and lots of good food. Had a party of 10 and had the family style dinner and everyone was very satisfied. Just save some room for the excellent desserts. Park in the Motor Mart Garage on Stuart street and have your ticket validated in the restaurant and parking is only $10.

    Planned a small 60th Birthday dinner for my husband and immediate family. Every person who I came in contact with was super helpful and friendly. Excellent customer service all around. The food was terrific. My 5 year old grandson was asked how his spaghetti and meatballs tasted and he said "awesome, they sure make good stuff here'. Overall experience was fantastic. Can't wait to go back.

    My wife and I had dinner at Maggiano's on Saturday night with my parents and brother. Dinner was great (as usual), and our servers Tom and Bryan were very helpful. We ordered "family-style"; I definitely recommend the Bruschetta. The only complaints I would have is that we were seated in a small function room just off of the entry with 2 larger parties (a birthday party of 12 and a bachelor's party for 14). It was rather loud in the room. We were also seated in a very dark corner in the back, and we had trouble even reading our menus. Tom was kind enough to raise the light level for us; however it also brightened the entire room instead of just the small overhead lamp at our table, which was still a problem. Overall, we enjoyed it.

    Me and my fiance went for a night out of dinner and a show and I picked maggianos based on the reviews. The service was friendly and the restaurant plays classic Italian music, very relaxing and homey feel. It's big enough that you see and hear others but not there individual conversation. We ordered the fried calimari for an appetizer and it was well breaded and not too greasy. I ordered the four cheese raviolis and when I took a bite I gave it a moment of silence that it deserved. The ravioli was thick with all the cheeses and was absolutely amazing. My fiance ordered the eggplant parmesan and compared it to his grandmothers. It was rich in taste and soft.

    We went to Maggiano's Boston to celebrate our son's 18th birthday when we couldn't get reservations at Top of the Hub. It was great! We chose to order family style since there were five of us. There were many choices for appetizers, salads, entrees, and desserts. This was especially important to us since we had one member in our party who was a vegetarian and one who didn't eat fish. The food was delicious and knowing that it was all you could eat was a big plus since my son needs to gain weight. However, even with 5 of us, we couldn't eat everything that we ordered and ended up bringing 3 bags of food home with us! We would definitely recommend Maggiano's and hope we have a chance to return!

The server, Jamie, was tremendously attentive and friendly and Maggiano's even provided us with a FREE piece of their fabulous cheesecake when I mentioned the reason we were there celebrating!

    My family and I took a quick trip into Boston for the day and with little Italy so busy we decided to try Maggiano's. The restaurant was busy and our servers were awesome. The only downside was a little wait for the food to come out and the check other than that we were happy and satisfied.

    We found the noise level unbearable to have a conversation. The waitress lowered the sound volume for us. One item we ordered was the flatbread and it fell very flat! For an Italian restaurant to serve a flatbread as poor as they did, was extremely disappointing. I can make one better at home with a slice of bread!

    I can't believe I didn't know about this restaurant...or that it was a chain in major cities around the country. We brought our family (6) for a birthday dinner for our 13 year old daughter. Our expectations were exceeded in ambiance, food, and especially the service. Our waiter (Chris) made it an utterly enjoyable time of laughing and eating. Thank you, Maggiano's...great job.

    The service at the bar & the waitstaff were great. We were seated in a nice big comfy booth which was nice.The only hold back for a 5 star review was the food. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't bad, it just wasn't outstanding like many restaurants we've dined at in the N End so I can't give them a 5 but overall it was a good experience. The fried zucchini was a much bigger appetizer than anticipated - it was good.They serve french style bread.The lobster carbonara was OK and the Veal marsala was decent.If you are a "foodie" I don't think this is the place for you. If you have a large group,function,or are in the area and don't have time for say the North End then this will work nicely.The prices were good if you don't want to break the budget.

    They always execute perfectly and today was no different. A little uncomfortable with a guy who was going around trying to sell his gift card and putting the sell on everyone but had nothing to do with the location just made us uncomfortable. Zucchini was perfect, but the Calamari was over fried and not good. Chicken Marsala, and Chicken Francese were absolutely perfect. Missed adding ingredients to the tossed salad
