    Maggiano's is an excellent restaurant in many ways, but the food is the letdown. The service is usually excellent, but it seemed as if our service was a little on the slower side. It's okay and I understand the hassle and bustle of serving, but it took a great deal of time to get our check and payment verification. While the ambiance is great and the restaurant has a cozy feel with a great wine list, the food is not as impressive as I was expecting. I always judge an Italian restaurant on their Spaghetti Marinara...and I was not impressed. I also had some of the baked ziti, which was very good...and a few bites of a zucchini appetizer with a lemon aioli that was very good, but not outstanding.

    We went for my birthday and it was great! As soon as we walked we were greated.The host was very friendly as were the hostess and our server. Since we had never been before we got a complimentary appetizer(fried zucchini) that was delicious!The food was good and the Sangria(red) was awesome! They brought out huge piece of chocolate cake that is the ultimate chocolate lovers dream. It was very busy and lots of activity but you don't notice.

    I tried the new lite menu and did not like my food at all. The sauce was runny and the dish had no taste ( chicken alfredo). I did not complain but I expected more because normally the food is very good. The service was ok but the serve had no personality. We will not be in a hurry to go back any time soon.

    This restaurant is always busy on Friday evenings. I usually choose to grab a table at the bar on whatever day I choose to visit, but figured I'd dine in the main dining room this time, in which I was seated quickly despite them being unable to locate my reservation. My food was delicious, the server was great as well as management. My experience was great overall despite how busy they were.

    Food is OK at best. Sysco foods at its finest i guess. They herd you in like cattle and serve you food that just not good. you can tell nothing is fresh. If you want real Italian go to Tascano in South Park. This is just another Olive Garder.

    my wife and I went there for our anniversary. The service was excellent the server was nice to us and helpful. I did enjoy the experience and his suggestions. My wife picked out Maggianos specifically for the veal parmesan. It was some of the best I had ever eaten.I would say it was just a tad bit too salty but great none the less. I must confess to falling in love with the warm bread that was served almost immediately after we sat down. My wife and I both enjoyed our dining experience in the food we ate

    In town for spouse's high-school class reunion. Had late dinner at Maggiano's--one of our favorites in Charlotte. Had to change reservation at last minute--no problem; restaurant accommodated readily. We were seated a few minutes BEFORE reservation time and never rushed. Not the best table location in the house, but not horrible either. Efficient, friendly staff. Always a good experience here.

    The new Lighter menu items are yummy, we tried 3. The chopped salad was bland/not tossed well, so the top half was blah, but the overall service was lacking. My seating request via Open Table (booth or table NOT near the bar-end of the restaurant) resulted in seating right at the bar/waitstaff doorway, so when I mentioned this, the hostess said, "Well, it's a booth. If you don't mind waiting, we can reseat you elsewhere in 15 minutes.", but we were already seated late, so I declined. Our waitress started off good but after then was all so-so...didn't take my drink order and had someone else bring our apps & entrees. I'll go here again because of prior experiences, so this one is chalked up as an "off night".

    I love the atmosphere at Maggiano's. The music and decor is inviting. It's an old favorite. There was a time when we would only go for special occasions and now we just kind of pop in from time to time for lunch or dinner. I am especially fond of the family style dining. Also, when you order one of the classic pastas you can pick a second pasta to take home at no additional charge. The pricing is appealing. They'll even deliver.

    My friend and I showed up for a late lunch and sat in the bar. I love sitting there because the bar area is always quieter than the main restaurant. It is also a blast into the past with dark wood and beautiful banquette seating. With Sinatra crooning in the background the atmosphere is complete. We started with chocolate martinis. They are always the best. Our server brought out hot bread with oil and cheese that was joined by our Maggiano salad. I had the veal piccata off the lighter menu and my friend had the mushroom ravioli. Both were delicious! We finished with coffee and lemon cookies. Our server couldn't have been more attentive. It was a wonderful dining experience.

    Our waitress was amazing, polite, and funny. The manager of the store came out and brought us fried zucchini on the house which was to die for. The food was DELICIOUS and unbelievably fast coming out. My only complaint is that we were sitting outside, and they were cleaning up all the cushions, table cloths, and setting up the chairs making us feel rushed. But overall this was a GREAT experience. We will be back.

    This a great restaurant for authentic Italian Food! I enjoyed my evening.The section that we sat in was a little dark and the table was small for 4 people.It made it a little tight getting in all the plates and accessories.However when the food came it made it all worthwhile.The appetizers were great I would recommend the Zucchini Fritte.The entree's were great I had the Chicken Parmegian and it was great! The portions are plentiful and I took some home.Overall a great night of food and the service was very good considering that the place was packed.
