    My boyfriend and I went here for Sweetest Day. I decided to make a reservation for 8:15pm so that we wouldn't have to wait very long to be seated. We arrived at the restaurant 15 minutes early and we weren't seated until after 8:30pm. I felt that the reservation was pretty much pointless.

    We tried some of the seasonal menu items. The pear bruschetta was delicious. The butternut squash ravioli was a hit. I had the crab and shrimp cannelloni and it was very tasty. The service was very good as usual. It wa sweetest day and homecoming in the area. It was busy. We had reservations at 7 and were seated at 7:20- that's the only negative I have.

    Glad we made arrangements for dinner since it was packed when we arrived. We did have good food and Michael was a good waiter. My only complaint is the noise level and I think it should be set up better that so many extra staff do not have to constantly walk passed carrying stacks of dishes and glasses. We were near a work station but I think there would be a better way of restocking the tables from a private area somehow. It was a constant hustle and bustle back and forth in front of our table which made us feel rushed. Definitely a great place for dining!

    If you want large portions and value a doggie bag for leftovers Maggianios is the place for you. The food is fast food served in a nicely styled environment. Smaller freshly prepared meals would serve the environment much better.

    The food and service were excellent. Our only disappointment was with the table we were given. We asked for a table with some privacy since my husband and I were celebrating an anniversary. We were given the second table as you enter the restaurant. It was a table on the main aisle that everyone who entered the restaurant had to pass to get to their table. With so many patrons and servers constantly passing our table, it definitely was not a private setting. There were many other tables sitting empty which were more private.

    This was my first time at a Maggiano's and I was so pleased with the quality of the food. I grew up in Brooklyn around the finest Italian cooks (my friends mothers!) and have been longing for a real authentic meal since moving to Cincinnati 20 years ago. Have tried many places, both chain and mom and pop joints - and have been disappointed each time. Was skeptical about Maggiano's, but my girlfriend talked me into trying it. I was NOT disappointed at all!! The veal parmigana was out of this world - so tender and delicious. Broccolini and fried zucchini was to die for. My GF had the fettucine alfedo so she chose the egg plant parm as her "take with" meal - I had for lunch the next day - the best egg plant parm I have had in 30 years.

    Our reservation was at 8:15. We weren't seated until 8:30. Our server came to the table only to say she would return. She came back four times to our table speaking to us each time before taking a drink order. It took 15 minutes to get our order into her. Our two drinks came and they were wrong. How hard is Ice Tea and a Coke? The meal was timed so poorly that couples who sat down in other servers sections were seated, served and sent home before us. By no means was I Looking for fast food, but this experience was very disappointing.

    Everything we ordered was delicious, perfectly prepared, & the service was outstanding. We had the margarita flatbread for appetizer. The maggiano salads were so tasty, with not too much dressing on them. The lasagna was very filling. We took home the pound cake for dessert, & it was also delicious, served with caramelized bananas & vanilla ice cream. We love Maggiano's!

    My overall experience at Maggiano's was good. Our waitress was very friendly and informative. She was attentive and available when needed. Our food was brought to us in a timely fashion and the portions were generous. Our meals were good but not great. I had a chicken dish and my dining mate had a shrimp dish. We dined at a leisurely pace and did not feel rushed. However, we did not feel welcomed by the front desk staff. We were not greeted with a smile and they did not seem to have knowledge of our open table request for a booth. The positives outweighed the negatives and we will dine at Maggianos in the future.

    I have been to Maggiano's before,, I have taken my team there to eat and I have always been pleased with the service and the food. It is a nice place,, and I do plan to dine there again. However,, this experience was not the best. It started with the honoring of my reservation. I arrived 10 min before my 8:30 reservation. I was not sat until 8:45. Our server came over and was pleasant. However, other tables around us who were sat and ordered after us received their food before us. The server told us it was due to the steak, that it takes 30 min to cook a medium steak, really? It took so long that we did not get a chance to eat we had to get it to go. Once home we found the steak was overcooked. For $45 I would have expected more

    Eating here is such a great value. We all took advantage of the buy a pasta take a pasta home and both meals were great (and reheated really well). I ordered the Taylor Street Baked Ziti and it came to the table piled high in a steaming hot casserole dish. It was delicious and such a huge portion that I could have shared it with two other people. The fettuccini and spaghetti ordered at the table were also good, but the chocolate cake that we ordered for dessert was amazing! Don't pass up Chocolate Zuccotto Cake....and be sure to share!

    Having eaten at multiple Maggiano's locations in Chicago, I had a pretty good idea what to expect. The decor, food quality and menu selection were all welcoming and familiar. The expected norm ended there. Greeted quickly, I informed the hostess we were quite early for our reservation and yet she sat us without hesitation; even though it was the height of dinner rush. We were waited on by 2 different bus persons, filling our drinks and starting our cocktail order. Our server was attentive but not intrusive or pushy. He had the perfect balance of being right there when needed without us waiting or flagging him down. The entire experience reminded me of a Captain/crew dining experience normally reserved for much pricier establishments.

Maggiano's is our go-to place for excellent Italian food. We never leave hungry (and usually have lunch for the next several days because of how large the portions are) and the service is delightful.
