    My fiancé and I just dined at Maggianos Boston for our one year engaged! I absolutely love it here!! The food is always impressive and never disappointing! Last year, we invited my family to the city to enjoy Maggianos with us and I think Family Style dining was so good, that I've been talking about going back for the entire year! I wish I could remember our waitress' name. She was awesome! Thanks for an amazing experience! We will be back sooner this time!!

    As soon as we walked through the door everyone from the host, hostess, bartender (who encouraged members of our party to have a cocktail while we waited to be seated) to our waiter the experience was wonderful. We were celebrating three birthdays after seeing a show and it was a great ending to a lovely day, not to mention the fantastic food for a moderate price. We will certainly be back and as an FYI this was not our first visit. We live in Plymouth, MA., and although the ladies of the party were already in Boston for the show the men drove up for dinner we could have easily driven back home and had dinner there.

    We saw the Lion King with our children and had a reservation immediately after at Maggiano's. We were immediately seated and had the nicest waiter who was super sweet to our boys and brought their food out first. The food, the service and the atmosphere was perfect for eating with out kids. We'll definitely be back!

    I would and will recommend this venue to anyone and everyone for a night out for dinner in Boston. We had amazing Service, (I tipped 25%, to Brian our Server, he was laid back and knowledgeable). The portions were big enough for all four of us to comfortably split appetizers and test everyone's food (every single dish we ordered was made to perfection). 4 of us dined 2 app's, 4 full sized entree's, 2 bottles of wine and a glass of Whiskey, $249.00...I can not complain about that.

    Each time we come to Maggiano's we are impressed. I love the offering of Lighter Fare which still gives you plenty to eat. Due to an accident on our way in, we knew we were going to be late. We called to explain, they said no problem, and when we arrived we were welcomed and luckily seated immediately as we had tickets to a show. The food, waitress and even valet parking was outstanding!

    Rarely do I dine out in this economy, but when I do it better be worth it and this restaurant was well worth it. The food was excellent as were the drinks. They have a great variety of both and the prices were very reasonable. I love the special touch by the maître Dee who said my name a few times while seating us and gave us a business card in the end for personal reservations. I will definitely return soon.

    Everything about our experience was excellent. I had eaten at a different Maggione's about 10 years ago and loved it. There is no Maggione's near the city where I live or I would have repeated the experience sooner. Frankly, I was concerned that my recollection may have been too rosy or that this place may not live up to the other. My fears were groundless. The food was just as delicious (and plentiful) and the service just as impeccable, from the greeting staff who swiftly helped to correct a problem with my reservation (my fault) to the pleasant, efficient server.

    Really enjoyed our dinner at Maggianos. The food was excellent. We got an appetizer which contained tomatoes and cheese which was excellent. For dinner we had the chicken picatta and veal parmesan which were both excellent. One of the things I liked best was there was plenty of food, but not too too much, meaning after an appetizer and dinner, we still had room for desert. The service was excellent and the ambience was nice as well. Very kid friendly as I saw many families there. All in all a great choice, would recommend in a heartbeat.

The food was great and even though we were full half way through our dinners, we couldn't stop! Enjoyed our dinner and lunches in the past were plentiful.

    We had a 7pm reservation and we were seated at around 7:10pm. It was a busy night so I didn't think this was unreasonable. I ordered lasagna and it was very good. My husbands ziti and sausage was also good and large enough to bring some home. The service was great. I never had to look around for the waiter. We love to go to maggianos when in Boston.

    This is the fifth year that my wife and I have gone to Maggiano's with our neighbors to celebrate our collective September birthdays. Each year we have enjoyed the delicious, unsurpassed bounty of the Chef's Special for groups of four or more. With menu selections to satisfy every taste or mood, the appetizer, main course and dessert choices faithfully represent a broad range of Italian favorites. The only difficulty that the diners may have will be to choose their menu selections from the mouth-watering choices in this "family style", unlimited dining option. As always, the food preparation and presentation is consistently outstanding, and the service is exemplary in every detail. Maggiano's dining experience is always truly memorable!

    The only good thing was the great waitress we had. The maître'd was a well dressed and rather handsome but rather than handing menus to us, he threw them on the table then left. The fish was not fresh (tilapia and lobster) and their signature seafood and linguini dish was bland with clams that went bad so I had to spit them out.
