Diner Reviews
  • "I'm a regular at different Maggiano's locations. Despite being a mini chain restaurant, Maggiano's consistently continues to serve better Italian food than most. There have been times at various Maggiano's where the food was very good but not great; our visit on Sunday stood out as one of the best, both in attentive service (our waiter was training a new staff member) and food quality. Everything came hot and fresh from the kitchen, and our requested extra marinara sauce for the calamari and butter in addition to the standard olive oil for the bread were immediately answered."

  • "Although I was late for my reservation, Maggiano staff was able to sit us within 15 minutes so we were appreciative of their ability to accommodate our situation. In terms of food service, our waiter was friendly and attentive. Moreover, the food portions we received were more than adequate for people with extremely large appetites."

  • "If I was going to recommend this restaurant to someone, I'd start by asking them how their day was, and I'd respond that my day was good too. Then I'd bring up the recent bachelorette party in Chicago I had and the great restaurant we went to, I think it was called Marianas? No, just kidding, it's Maggianos and we had an amazing time."

  • "I have never been disappointed with the food at Maggiano's. The portions are big so if you are a part of a duo, you most certainly can share a main course. So delish!"

  • "Good wine, great lasagna, then brought home the bow tie special. Fabulous. Split the meal with my friend since the portions are always generous and she was staying at a hotel (no accommodations for leftovers) This is one of our favorite places to eat when out."

  • "Great food and value. You can choose a pasta entree and take one home for free. Our dining experience was ruined by Poor service. Long waits between dishes and inattentive staff. We had our dessert to go because we did not want to wait another 15-20 min for it and then another 10 or so just to pay our bill. The place wasn't even that crowded."

  • "Excellent food at a great value. The steak was perfectly cooked, my girlfriend had pasta, we shared a bottle of wine, and had desert for approx $100. You can't beat that price for what we got in the heart of Chicago. Amazing venue as well. Our server Raul went above and beyond to make us feel welcomed and appreciated. Definitely recommended and will be back again soon!"

  • "Great dining experience. All of the people were friendly and professional. Our waiter really helped us out by getting our food quickly as we were late for a concert at Northerly Island. Food was outstanding. Can't wait to go back when we have more time to enjoy. Special thanks to server Michael. He is the type of employee you need in a place like yours. We were seated and sat for 15 minutes without anyone so much as telling us they would be with us. We were ready to walk out and Michael came along (not even his table) and with a few kind words and some immediate action turned our experience around. Thanks again."

  • "There seems to be something different about Maggiano's. The food was good but not great. The service was a bit slow but they tried. And they removed my favorite item from the menu....crispy onion strings!! So all in all, it was nice."

  • "We popped in for dinner on a Saturday night around 730 after craving some Italian. The place was very busy with a lot of tourists but we got seated in about 15 minutes. The have a wonderful dinner special for $40. You an appetizer (or two side salads), two entrees and a desert and then two entrees to go for the next day. Usually when restaurants run these specials they are giving you smaller then usually portions. Not with Maggianos, the portions were almost too much and the food was delicious."

  • "As always enjoyed my favorite shrimp scampi. However the service was was lacking. The server took to long to even acknowledge us. We ordered our drinks and food at the same time. We received our food in a timely manner and was cooked to perfection. My son ordered the lasagna and was never asked what take home meal he wanted. I had to remind the waiter that he was eligible for the take home portion. Also we were never offered refills on our beverages. My son and myself ordered the spumoni Ice Cream for dessert it was more like soup and was a little gritty (Freezer burnt). This isn't the typical service and food quality we get when we dine here. May of been a off night."

  • "Long time diner at Maggiano's on Clark. Food is good and plentiful. Service is great. Have tried many dishes and salads. The pasta 2 for 1 is just right for a single person."

  • "I was with my boyfriend to have dinner. The food is the high quality and each plat is enormus!! All people had to ask a box to take the left food home. The ornaments very italian. If a day I'll come to Chicago, I´ll visit another time the restaurant."

  • "As always atmosphere and food were outstanding. Always come with at least four people so we can eat family style, it is the only way to go!"

  • "We had a fabulous dinner and evening and there's not one thing we would change about the experience. Great food, great service and the family-style meal was a wonderful equalizer for guests from 8 to 70. HIGHLY recommend for groups of this size as we were seated at a large table and all together - not always possible. Bravo!"

  • "My wife and I have eaten here before and saw no difference between this time and other visits in terms of quality of food and service. We both ordered the classic pasta dishes and then took two home with us and they were great the next night reheated. We would continue to recommend this restaurant as a great value and delicious food."

  • "Not sure why, but the food was just OK this visit and the service was marginal."

  • "We have tried Maggiano's in numerous cities, but wanted to try the original location. All the Maggiano's look exactly alike, the menus are the same as is the wine list. So, no surprises here. However, the service was excellent and the food timing was much more like a high end restaurant and not a rushed experience. Everything was the perfect temperature and the wine went perfectly with the pasta."

  • "The food was outstanding! There are 5 people in our family, and everyone ordered something different. We are a hard group to please, but everyone ended up loving what they ordered. We will definitely be back when we visit Chicago again. One of the reasons we stopped at Maggiano's was because it is on our "Chicago Monopoly" board game, and we wanted to be able to remember it when we play it when we are back home in Iowa. Thanks for the delicious memory!!!"

  • "Had the family style light menu. We had a group of 8 and loved everything we ordered. We especially liked the appetizer of Mozzarella marinara and the Rigatoni D for a main course. We enjoyed the bread basket with the oil and Parmesan cheese. Only complaint was our waiter was slow with drink refills and we asked twice for more bread and never did receive it. We had enough other food to make up for it, but felt a bit ignored by him throughout our dinner."

  • "It had been a while since we were at here and not sure if the restaurant was understaffed but the service wasn't the greatest. I wanted to order a bottle of wine and I clearly wanted help from the waitress and the best she could do was to say that "she'll be back." We ordered drinks that took so long that the members in our group decided to just get up and order directly from the bar. Our used appetizer plates were left on the table we got tired of looking at them and decided to just take them off the table ourselves. It was not only after we complained about delays that our waitress even made some type of acknowledgement. She later came by with some treats and said this is for the "delay." Though she clearly wasn't genuine. There's more..."

  • "The food is always excellent and the service is friendly. Very large portions so a great idea is to get a few options and split them up. This way you get to taste all the goodness!"

  • "This was my third visit in the past 30 days and finally it turned out great. Unlike the previous visit, my server greeted my party right away. I thanked him for starting the service right and exclaimed my disappointing dining experiences on previous trips. He advised the chef about my ziti and it came out perfectly, like it normally does when prepared correctly. The server provided excellent service and I will ask for him to be my server whenever I dine at that location."
