Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant was very busy on Sunday as my wife and I came to celebrate our anniversary. After a 10 minute wait past our reservation time, we were seated and promptly greeted by our server. She did a great job making recommendations. The house wine was nice with our choices and the tiramisu was a great way to end the meal. Thanks!"

  • "The food, service, wine and ambience was perfect. We come time and time again, either the two of us or we make plans to meet others there was the wonderfully delicious Italian Food and the great service. We have always had such wonderfully attentive and knowledgeable service and that is why we keep coming back"

  • "I don't live in the area, but was looking for some options for Italian in the area for my graduation dinner. Needless to say, I loved the outdoor eating area - - great vibe. The food was classic Italian and was delicious, especially the Bruschetta, some of the best I've ever had! Don't forget to try the chocolate cake too and make sure you ask for more than one spoon, as you will need to share!"

  • "I wanted reservations for 20 at 4pm, they could only seat that many at 2:45. We changed our plans and lowered the number to 18. Got there on time, they sat people at our tables and asked us to wait about ten min. they were about to leave. Then after 3 they said "the people are not leaving we will set a new place for all of you". It was probably 3:30 before we even got a drink, but after that the server was fantastic. Our food was hot and delicious. My family had a wonderful time and we will go back, but I will talk to the manager to confirm our reservations, otherwise there really is no reason to make reservations if they fill your tables hoping the people will leave in time:("

  • "While the food was good, as expected, the service was exceptional. Ally, my server, was friendly, attentive, and professional. The free entree to take home was also a great promotion. A super value."

  • "Maggianos never fails to meet my expectation. The good is always awesome and the service is the same. They know how to take care of their dining guests in a friendly yet professional way. My favorite restaurant in Cincinnati."

  • "We live about two hours away from Cincinnati but visit fairly regularly to go to the Newport Aquarium. Since my daughter was very small, we have always stopped at Kenwood on the way home to eat at Maggiano's. The food and service is always very good, and they do such an excellent job at making our experience fun and kid-friendly. For example, I always appreciate that the staff sends my daughter's food out on a chilled plate, so it's not hot to the touch (she's two)."

  • "Food and service excellent, as always; but restaurant is getting a bit shabby--broken sink in bathroom and carpets are worn and dirty."

  • "The food was outstanding. The waitress missed several key elements to our visit. It was my wife's birthday, noted so on the online reservation. The hostess acknowledged it, the waitress did not. The next table had a birthday and received a complimentary dessert. Either the waitress decided my wife didn't deserve a dessert, she didn't pay any attention to the reservation notes or there is a lack of communication between the Hostess and Server. We had to ask for plates for the olive oil/pepper for dipping the bread. Secondly, she never bothered to ask if any of us wanted anything to drink besides alcohol or water. I wanted iced tea, but refused to tell her, so I just drank the water."

  • "Maggiano's is a very special place to my wife and I. We have gone there for our anniversary dinner for the past several years. This past week we celebrated our 43rd wedding anniversary and then ate at Maggiano's. We were treated with kindness and respect from the moment we walked in - from the hostess to our server. At the end of our meal the manager, Marcio Kosien, came and wished us a happy anniversary and brought over this delicious dessert sampler. To say the least, we were treated like celebrities! We have recommended this restaurant to everyone we know. The service was outstanding - the food was delicious - the evening was perfect!"

  • "One of the waiters was walking past our table carrying a handful of pitchers of water. He bumped into something and spilt water onto my husbands foot and the floor. He didn't so much as say he was sorry. The upscale quality that the resturant had when it first opened is gone and now it has very much turned into a lower class mall resturant."

  • "The food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the meal-for-two even included two take-home entrees at a decent price. I had the lasagna, my wife had eggplant parm, and we shared the chicken flatbread. All was very good. The tirimisu was wonderful."

  • "Maggiano's continues with its excellent service and food selection. Our server was excellent. She was there when needed but did not intrude on our conversation. The wine list was excellent. Our selection of the Gabbiano Chianti was perfect for our meal. Pricing was reasonable for the portions provided, especially when you consider the take home meals."

  • "Service was very good but not enough of a benefit to overcome average food taste. The Crab & Shrimp Cannelloni was served piping hot and well presented but the cream sauce had almost no taste at all, with a pasty consistency. Disappointing to say the least. Just nothing special about the food or the experience to encourage us to return - and this place is a 5 minute drive from our home. We will continue to drive 25 minutes to an Italian restaurant that makes food that tastes like it was made in small batches, not at a commissary."

  • "We chose the restaurant for my 14 year old daughter's birthday lunch. Fortunately this is not the kind of restaurant where they bring all of the staff out to sing, but they did make her feel special by verbally acknowledging her birthday and putting candles in the cake we ordered for dessert. The food is delicious. Our particular favorite is the four cheese ravioli. One of the best aspects of dining here is that they bring out your meal for dine-in and then around the time they bring the check, they send home another meal of your choice with you to eat later. Some might call this take-home meal free, but it is reflected in the cost. The drinks were kept filled as was the bread basket. We enjoyed the chocolate cake for dessert."

  • "I loved the bruchetta. It really is the real deal. Your spaghetti w/ meatballs was beyond anything I could have wished for and the service was perfecto. Thank you for a wonderful dinner.....and the extras was a BIG suprise. You are a top notch establishment and will be back w/ friends. Thanks again!"

  • "Definitely enjoyed our experiences with this restaurant. We were there once before for a birthday celebration in one of the party rooms. Food was excellent then, and service was very good as well. We received a gift card, and were happy to have a reason to go back again. Since we live an hour away from the restaurant, we don't get to the area often. However, it was worth the drive! We enjoyed our food, the waitress was very friendly and attentive, and one of the chefs even came out to speak with us. The only downside to the whole experience was the approximately 3-year-old who was seated with her family in the next booth who had a tendency to let our a scream once in a while. Certainly not the restaurant's fault, but a bit annoying."

  • "If you love Southern Italian food and you are starving, this is the place to be! The large amounts with great deals on meals was perfect for my date and I's Anniversary celebration. The place was packed and families were leaving full with extra meals to take home and have for lunch the next day. I mean literally they pack you a dinner/lunch for you to go plus your leftovers from your dinner if you couldn't finish that monsterous meal! I would recommend this restaurant to all of my friends! Service and atmosphere was great and friendly. Couldn't have been happier!"

  • "This place consistently wins "best Italian in Cincy?" Huh? This was my first visit - and my experience was "fine." There was nothing wrong with my experience at all. But it's a chain restaurant with food that showcases that. None of the menu items are original and are typical stereotype of what Americans "think" Italian food should taste like. The deal they offer of "buy an entree, get one free to take-home" makes me think this is why they consistently win this award. That offer is tough to beat! Especially with their low priced menu. Better Italian restaurants in the city are: Nicola's, Sotto or even Prima Vista or Scotti's."

  • "We picked a classic pasta selection (plenty of options) in which we got an entree to dine in with and one to take home! That's a steal! And a ton of food. After adding a side salad, I took some of each home--resulting in 4 meals total! DELICIOUS pasta and bread and salad. Try the Mushroom ravioli--can't go wrong! Eggplant parmesan is also good!"

  • "I went to celebrate my birthday and graduation and the service was not good. The waitress never asked if we were there for a celebration and there was 14 people all together. The waitress was on the borderline of rude. The manager listened to our complaints and said he would discuss it with the waitress. The food was good although the servings with the family style was not sufficient to the amount of people that was eating."

  • "Dinner was wonderful, the restaurant is beautiful. Would love to try outside dinning some time but too hot right now. Only thing that could have been improved is that our waitress had way too many tables. She did her best but flew by each time to check on us. The restaurant was very crowded, it was a Friday and it might not have been anticipated. Everything else was great."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food and service is great, the only take away is the noise level. It's very vibrant with energy, but LOUD. I would not consider it a romantic atmosphere if that is what one is looking for"

  • "The menu said they had gluten free pasta and the ask about it!! I did and the waiter brought out the head chef[ from Germany?] and he helped me choose my dinner to be entirely gluten free!! what service!!"

  • "The hostess did not read my requests in reserving my table through the Open Table site. She didn't see that I had requested the patio. She was quite annoyed that she had to "set up" a table for us out there. This required her to put 5 napkins and 5 menus on the table. It didn't seem like a tough task to me. It was 11 am so things were not yet busy either. The server was good but did not replenish water. A pitcher of water would have been a great touch. It was very warm - late June in Cincinnati. The manager even came by near the end of the meal, but didn't notice our water glasses were empty."

They accommodated us in having our surprise wedding cake topper sitting on the table when we were seated. The food was incredible...not to mention the buy one meal get on meal to take home! Thank you Maggiano's for making my parents special day something they will definitely remember...."
