Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great dining experience at Maggiano's Chicago. We have been to the Maggiano's in Phila. & Boston with good results and this location (their original) is excellent for family dining. We chose the "family-style" menu and every course our wonderful waitress brought out was excellent. Overall a great night enjoyed by all (6) of our group"

  • "I had relatives in from Sweden. I have not been to the Maggiano's in the city. I love the one in the burbs. I was very dissappointed with the service. The waitress took drink orders and did not come back to the table after that for a good 15-20 minutes. After our food arrived one of my relatives did not recieve here pasta. Again the waitress did not stop by for another 20 minutes. Our drinks were constantly empty and after my great aunt asked for her pasta a 2nd time it never came. The food was good but the service was lack luster at best. In such a competitive market in the city I was suprised the service was so subpar."

  • "We ate here over the July 4th weekend so I am glad I had made a reservation as there was over an hour wait. It was extremely loud and to talk to the person next to me I had to yell in their ear. The waiter took our order and that was all we saw of him. Someone else brought out the food and we had to grab a walking by manager to refill our drinks. The food there is delicious we did enjoy that. Our waiter finally came by when how noticed our plates had been cleared to see if there was anything else. Left us our check, we paid and left. Very disappointed as we have always enjoyed the great service at the Lettuce Co."

  • "Delicious pastas and offering a deal that is incredibly enticing - 1 appetizer / 2 side salad, 2 pastas + 2 take home, 1 dessert for $39.99. The food we got was more than enough for our family of 2 adults + 2 young kids for lunch, dinner, plus another dinner. The price we paid ended up cheaper than having 3 meals of McDonald's!"

  • "I had a taste for my favorite appetizer from Maggiano's and decided to make a trip there. The Calamari was well worth the visit and to top it all off, I received great customer service from the waiter!"

  • "We've dined at Maggiano's on various occasions, usually with the kids. I received an email about a date night special and made a reservation through open table. It was 7pm on a Saturday night and there were several large groups. I was worried we were going to be seated in the middle of the noise, but I was pleasantly surprised when we were seated in a u-shaped booth in the back of the restaurant. It was quite romantic and our service was excellent!"

  • "Maggiano's has been my reliable Italian restaurant that can please any pallette. My friends tend to be picky eaters so this is where we go when visitors come to town. Food is consistently good and service is mostly very good. The attentiveness is lacking when it is a bit busy on weekends which can be true of many places."

  • "i had a coupon that when i made the reservation i was told by the receptionist that i could use. when i presented it with the check, the restaurant refused it. receptionist denied approving it. i was given my check while eating my entree. my table was cleared while i was still eating my entree. from being seated until being given my check was less than twenty minutes. it is a fast food restaurant."

  • "Food is good, not great. The price is fair, though. The pasta was a little too cooked. Could've been more al dente, but I heard Americans prefer it softer than my personal taste. Sauce was tasteful and there was a decent amount of lobster. Service is very good. The waiter took a while to take my order because something held her at another table (I noticed it.) First thing she said when came to mine was to apologize for the delay and promised she's compensate for that, which she did. My drink and starter came very quickly. Portions are generous. I ordered a small salad as starters and left almost half of it so I had room for the entrée. The spaghetti with lobster would easily serve a couple after the starters."

  • "We sat in the bar area, in a huge round booth. It was partly a business mtg, but the noise level was fine and we were comfortable with privacy. Our server Brittany was terrific: came around often enough that we felt well-looked after, but not as though as though she was intruding."

  • "We ate here to celebrate birthdays. We chose the Classic Family Style option b/c we can ask for 2nd, 3rd and even 4th serving if we are still hungry. We ordered mussels, calamari & stuffed mushrooms for appetizers... rigatoni "D" & eggplant parmesan (sauce could use a little more sugar) for pastas... tilapia and the sirloin steak as our entrees. When it was dessert time, our server (Jake) brought our desserts out with candles for my dad and sister. All the food was very delicious and our server, Jake, was awesome! We had a good amount of left-overs so we took everything home. My whole family (especially my hard-to-please dad) enjoyed the food and the service very much! We will definitely return again!"

  • "Maggiano's is always dependably good, but for my latest visit, it was great. There are two new prixe fix options, both of which incorporate the "take a classic pasta home" along with your leftovers. in this instance, I had sirloin with peppercorn sauce and took home ravioli in pesto alfredo. Our shared appetizer was salad caprese and shared dessert was apple crostada. Everything was really good. Our service was fantastic too."

The staff was great about everything from seating us late, to bringing us information and food quickly and individual bills also. We also got our take home bags quickly and everything was well done."

  • "Thanks for continuing the take-home pasta. Did enjoy the offer one time when we could order anything (not just a classic pasta) and do a take home. I'm always good for a bargain, so we just always order the pasta dish. Miss the bowtie with roasted vegetables and pesto."

  • "I took my wife to dinner at Maggiano's for her birthday. It was a wonderful experience. The waiter (Michael Suiter) was excellent and made us feel as if we were the only people in the restaurant. The food was superb and the atmosphere was cozy. We have dined here before and the service and food have been consistently great. This time was no exception. It was outstanding for the special occasion but is great if you want that "family over for Sunday dinner" feeling any day of the week."

  • "We chose Maggianos because my daughter has a life-threatening food allergy to peanuts and tree nuts. The entire staff was nothing but amazing in accommodating her allergy. The chef came to our table and asked us about her allergy, made suggestions for what she could eat safely and then prepared her meal specifically for her. Everything was delicious and our server -- along with the chef -- were warm and welcoming. Great overall experience!"
