  • "I went to this Maggiano's to celebrate my mother's birthday. I was able to make a reservation a few days before, and all of our requests were honored. We had multiple senior citizens in our party, and the staff was extremely accommodating."

  • "Maggianos is always a great spot for a consistently good meal and very reasonable price. Love the Maggianos salad and any of their signature pastas. Tried their Boston Cream pie for the first time and you cannot go wrong. Also tried their seasonal Sangria made with ginger beer and port - very refreshing!"

  • "It has been many years since I ate at a maggiano restaurant. First time at river north venue. Stopped by for lunch on a saturday. Place was bustling. Bread was warm and delicious with olive oil at table.. Server very busy yet attentive. And kept water filled. Chicken francese was excellent and I loved crispy roast potatoe. Also had calamari which was solid. Will not wait so long next time to return!"

  • "We received a gift card for this gem. Unfortunately our state doesn't offer a maggianos. So we brought it on our planned trip to Chicago. We did sit at our table a little too long before our server greated us but he made up for that with his service. We loved the food. We had four people dinning with us so we chose the family style expirence. We were not disappointed. I thought it was too good to be true. The salmon was a little dry but the Alfredo was great. Dessert was amazing. That chocolate cake was exactly what I needed that day. We did write a birthday comment on the open table website but nothing was ever said to the birthday quest. She would of loved that someone knew it was her birthday without telling them.I hope for one in KY"

  • "We chose Maggianos downtown because we really enjoy the Skokie and Woodfield locations. Not the same experience. Not the fun hustle and bustle of the other two locations. Server wasn't very friendly. Spilled something on two of our guests, and the food was fair at best.Based on this experience, we won't be rushing back."

  • "When it comes to a large group who want to enjoy each other's company family style, with lots of passed dishes and huge portions, this is the place for you! Reasonable prices for the most part and it's a Lettuce Entertain You Restaurant which brings with it good service and a variety of menu options."

  • "Had lunch with my girlfriend and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Both of us ordered the Shrimp Scampi which was delicious and had a generous amount of shrimp, with fresh grape tomatoes. The bread was freshly baked and warm making the cheese and olive oil topping even more scrumptious. The generous portion for the entree allowed us to be able to take some home with us. Will now try other entrees on the menu, instead of usually ordering the pasta dishes."

  • "I have to say,this has to be my favorite place to dine at when visiting Chicago. Everyone was friendly. Service was quick ,food was great. It was hard trying other new places to eat at. I only wanted to come back here. I will most definitely be returning every time I visit Chicago."

  • "The best part of Maggiano's is the generous portions and great deals ("take a meal home"). My 2 college students loved taking a meal back to school! The food is not exotic or unusual but it is ALWAYS great Italian food. Five of the six of us received our main course simultaneously but we had to find our waiter and ask where the last entree was--it was brought within 2 minutes of our asking. It's not our first time to Maggiano's and won't be our last!"

  • "The food at Maggiano's is excellent and worth the value! However, the service was slow like molasses and the server was vocally overbearing and not very attentive. The whole lunch took 2.5 hours from arrival to signature. We were given a prefix menu to begin, our food took and hour or so, and the notification that it was a birthday luncheon in the reservation was ignored until a coworker brought it up. My expectations were severely hurt in response to the customer appreciation and service. Again, the food and the value was right on par and exceed my prior reservations."

  • "We went to Maggiano's for my niece's 16th birthday. The family style meal gives diners lots of options as well as a hearty and delicious meal. We had a variety of vegetarian and meat dishes to accommodate our group. The server, Matthew, was in tune to our vegetarian needs and was very accommodating by bringing out both a sausage ziti entree as well as a ziti with no meat. A memorable experience with lots of leftovers to enjoy later. The appetizer stuffed mushrooms, steak entree and baked apple dessert were standouts."

  • "We had 14 of our family get together while we were in Chicago. The restaurant was great and our servers were AWESOME. The only problem I had was that they strongly encouraged us to do the "family style" which was fine but having kids there they didn't eat enough to make the family style worth the cost. We were only given the menu for the family style so were not given any other option. This is not going to keep any of us from going back. I have been to Maggiano's plenty of times and love it!!"

  • "Not a bad thing to say about Maggiano's Little Italy.The food was outstanding and at a very reasonable price. Our server, Bob, was quick and had a killer sense of humor. I appreciate that! The menu selections have something for everyone and all in all was a great dining experience. Don't miss this one!"

  • "We come here before a play or concert - very close to the theatre district. The portions here are always more than we can eat. And we always split - then we can get our favorite appetizer. Prices are reasonable - expecially with their buy one-get one choices Tiramisu to die for. The only thing to be careful of are the expensive wines. A small glass is $8.00 and a larger serving is $12, which was almost as much as dinner. The food is consistently good - and we keep trying different dishes. One of our favorite places."

  • "The whole experience was perfect from walking into the door and being greeted to the goodbye we received when leaving. The food was excellent and the service superb. We enjoyed this place so much we are making plans for a return visit and bringing some of the family. Highly recommend this place."
