  • "Outstanding food, always a great spot for family gatherings."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "We made a reservation on Open Table and were seated promptly. It was 90% outside and we were all hot, frustrated, etc after a long day at work. The waitress immediately came over and asked us what we'd like for a beverage. They knew we were in a bit of a rush (we had a 7:30 show to make) and the service was great! We ordered individually as we weren't really hungry! I do think the family style is perfect for a hungry group! We'd go back there in a heartbeat~"

  • "I've always had great experiences at Maggiano's in Boston since the first time I went there over 10 years ago. They hooked my family with free lemonade on a hot day, and we've been going back ever since for all sorts of occasions. The food is solid, the portions are heaping, and the service is always outstanding. I went there recently for my birthday and I was happy that the server was cool with my request for no fanfare. Not only did she comp my dessert, but she also brought out some small cookies with candles. It was a wonderful birthday meal where I enjoyed good food and good company."

  • "Everything was terrific except the hostess who gave us a hard time when we called to say we were running 15 - 30 minutes late."

  • "Had reservations for 20 people on a busy Saturday night. Was very happy to see our table ready on time. Wait staff were very friendly and the food was delicious. Not the cheapest place, our bill averaged $50 per person for family style but that included alcohol. Would definitely return and the bruschetta and gnocchi with sausage is a must try!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We ate here before the theater, and needed a place that wasn't too expensive and offered choices everyone would like. This met our criteria. The food is not as good as it used to be - crab and shrimp cannelloni were short on seafood and heavy on the cream sauce. However, a seafood pasta dish was brimming with steamers, mussels, shrimp, and lobster in a decent unfussy preparation. My glass of wine was a bit vinegary - better to stick to cocktails and soft drinks here. Service was prompt, friendly, and attentive. Overall I'm in no hurry to go back but I would eat here again."

  • "The app were like grandmas home cooking. The pastas were extensive and delicious. Not overpriced plenty of food to take home. Friendly staff"

  • "I went dressed in khakis and a dress shirt and I was definitely over dressed compared to the other diners. If you can look past a lot of the male customers wearing hats inside, the food is great for the price. Not the best Italian I've ever had, but fresh and high quality. I would definitely eat there again, except for the desserts. I tried the strawberry shortcake and tiramisu. I definitely wouldn't bother with desserts here, it was pretty obvious they don't have a pastry chef."

  • "My sisters, parents, and I dined at Maggiano's on a Sunday afternoon and it was great! The food was delicious, especially the Gnocchi with Italian Sausage! And, as first time customers we were given free appetizers. The cocktails and wine were great and the service was outstanding. Our server Christopher completed the experience and everyone loved it!"

  • "Our waiter, Osian, was horrible. He may have been new. Didn't have a clue about one the specials offered and then actually double charged us for the meal. Service was very, very slow with him. There were hardly any people in the restaurant and still it took a very long time for the food to come out. He was friendly but just didn't know much about menu. Food was very good."

  • "Love the place,the food and service. Only complaint is baked ziti not close to one prepared in Las Vegas location. - raw pieces of tomato, no basil flavor and little sausage - only disappointment. The rest of the meal was fabulous. Miss the pork dish you used to have on the menu. Staff were terrific."

  • "What a great experience, there were 12 of us had a large round table, selected from the Family Style "Classic" menu. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere causal and relaxing, great for both reunions with old friends and family or a romantic night out. Wait staff was attentive and courteous. We had a great time, only wish we hadn't eaten lunch because there was sooo much food we could not try it all. Kudos to Maggiano's - would go there again without a second thought."

  • "If you have a large group (or even a medium sized group), Maggiano's is perfect. It's family style, though they do have a la carte if you have a small party. The food is outstanding and just keeps coming. Save room for Nonna's pound cake. By far the best dessert in Boston."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "I was excited to go to Marggiano's. We has a group of 13. I was not happy with the family style dining for the price. I feel going to a restaurant with better quality food and ordering off a regular menu (not family style) would have been much better. I will say that the place was very nice and the service was excellent."

  • "my friend and I went to Maggiano's for appetizers so we'd have time to get out in time for a show the waitress was very good about accommodating our time frame the food came out quickly and everything was delicious my only complaint was the blonde girl at the reception table was pretty rude to us. She said it was their policy to give away a reserved table if over 15 min late....it hadnt been 15 min and it turned out they had tables it wasn't an issue but I don't think it was really worth her acting that way"

  • "Everything about out dining experience was awesome. The service was wonderful."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We arrived and were immediately asked if we wanted family style or not! What kind of question is that when we hadn't even looked at the menu. Waitress didn't show up for a while and she it took for ever to get drinks. Salads were brought before the drinks and then one sald at a time. Main dishes were cold and shrimp were slimy and uncooked. Restaurant was empty when we sat and we expected much better service and food."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Such a wonderful experience! They were very kind about my food allergy. (They have gluten free pasta and all their pasta sauces are made gluten free.) Great Service, Great Food.... What more could you ask for! By far, this is my favorite place to eat in Boston!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "From the drinks to the wine to the salads to the main course, it was all excellent. This is our second time there and we will be back again. There was nothing that we could fault, and the parking made the experience even easier (which is important in Boston). I would like to rate the dessert, but there is no way anyone had room left for anything."

  • "We went to Maggiano's with friends from the UK. One of whom had been there before and loves it - loves the food and the ambiance. We had a family style meal this time - with too much food and some very good wine. Desserts and leftovers were packed and we had a re-visit at home later. The portions are large - go hungry !"

  • "We came into Boston from NH for the day. Dinner at Maggiano's is a MUST! We made dinner reservations for 5:30 (highly recommended). We arrived 45 minutes early, which didn't phase them at all. We were seated immediately. The server arrived promptly to take our drink orders and advised us of the specials. I had a raspberry peach frozen drink, quite tasty. He ordered a beer. For dinner, I ordered the chicken and spinach manicotti. He ordered the rustic chicken and shrimp. Both dishes were AWESOME ....there is just no other way to say it! We didn't have dessert because we were too stuffed from dinner. Staff was attentive and friendly. Atmosphere was lovely. We will certainly be back again..and it won't be long either!!!!!"
