Diner Reviews
  • "The food is great, the service is great, and the ambiance is classic Italian. One of the best restaurants in a town full of good restaurants."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Maggiano's is our go-to restaurant for celebrating special occasions or those rare date nights that we get without kids. It's also top notch and the food never fails."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Poor service. Waited 45 minutes for entrees. Salads delivered with entrees rather than first course. Chicken Marsala was not nearly as good as Carrabas. Potatoes with Sirloin were cold."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "I have eaten in Maggiano's countless times. The prices are reasonable and can be outright cheap when you order the buy one take one home pastas. The service is generally good and attentive. I have 3 suggestions. Improve the bread to a good, crusty Italian, liven up the oil and pepper with some pepper flakes and grated cheese and serve fresh grated cheese instead of a jar of pre-grated cheese."

  • "Buy one pasta dish, take one home a good deal. Entrees were plentiful and tasty. Restaurant too noisy and crowded for us older folks to come on a regular basis. We couldn't hear ourselves talk."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I can always count on Maggiano's for consistently good food and service. The Maggiano's salad and the Chopped salad are very unique and unlike salads at other Italian restaurants. The portions are very generous; even my 6'3" 200 lb. husband could not finish his delicious veal dish. I usually order one of the Classic pastas so that I'll have another complimentary meal to take home (on top of the portion I could't finish). The Buy One, take one home offer is a great value. I also really like the bread! Once we were seated, the service was very expedient."

  • "The food was amazing as always but do not recommend having a big party.....only provided one waiter who was visibly overwhelmed!!"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "At first my table was lopsided and wiggled and then they fixed it then for my take home dish they forgot my meat ball . I normally love This restaurant but it was a bit off that day."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We enjoyed our dinner at Maggiano's. We got the Marcos Dinner for Two and felt like it was a good value. My only criticism is that the host staff seemed disorganized and overwhelmed by the crowd that night."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "My friend and I had a reservation and as soon as we walked in, we were seated. Our waiter Parker was very helpful, customer friendly, and knowledgeable about the menu, as this one was my friend's first time at Maggiano's. It took a while for our food to come out, but we didn't mind too much as we were having a great time talking. Parker, as well as two other employees (managers I think) came by and told us our food would be out soon. Unfortunately, when the food arrived, my friend wasn't happy with his food, but ate it and didn't complain. I don't know how management knew he didn't like his food, but they did end of removing our entrees from the bill and I thought that was very good customer service."

  • "We had a wonderful dining experience! The drinks were delicious, some of the best service ever. I appreciate that they cater so well to food allergies. My wife is gluten-free, so we both ordered the GF penne with our entree. I eat a lot of GF pasta, and I must say nothing approximates taste & texture like brown rice pasta. Maggiano's corn noodles were visually stunning, but made our dishes underwhelming."

  • "I recently planned a bridal shower for 20 people through open table at Maggianos. It was absolutely perfect from beginning to end! The reminder calls, the interaction with management and the service was excellent and went over without one flaw. The food was great! The table was set when we got there, the waiter served the cake we brought with a delicate lit candle for a perfect added touch. I will definitely plan another gathering there. No complaints it was perfect!!!"

  • "Everything was great except the Italian side salad - didn't seem fresh and crisp."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "we used to visit frequently and were surprised at the new causal nature of the patrons. the meal was good but not outstanding. the waiter was attentive and our reservation was on time. Not quite the special place it used to be but fine for families and groups."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The food was not up to your usual standers. I can only think that the busy dining room reflected on a very busy kitchen. The help was very good and every one from the first time we came in till we left were good."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "She paid no attention to me or my mother. We waited 10 minutes or more for salads and 30 seconds after she brought them someone brought the entrees. Instead of providing fresh entrees she brought the same ones back to us. There were huge blocks of time where we just waited for her to notice us or come close enough for us to get her attention. I won't return for a while."

  • "My family had a very good dinner experience and will go back."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "From our waiter to other issues including the food...we aren't sure we will be back. We have been very good customers and this time just were completely shocked by how it went."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We dined here on a Sunday night. Was not crowded. Made reservations through OpenTable and were seated promptly. Ordered apps, dinner, dessert. All excellent. Service was outstanding. Maggiano's ALWAYS makes you feel welcome and special. Can't wait until next time!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Neither of our entrées seemed adequately seasoned this time. We normally order the Chicken Saltimbocca which is always excellent. This time we had Rigatoni D and Chicken Marsala and were disappointed in both."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "If you want authentic Italian food and lots of it, this is the place to go. You can't go wrong with the Family Style menu. No one, even Uncle Vito, will go home hungry. (And you know how he likes to eat!) The service was attentive and helpful. But the food was fantastic. You better come hungry, because you won't leave hungry!"

  • "My boyfriend and I came to Maggiano's for my birthday. I have been at your establishment 3-4 times but my boyfriend had not. We had such a great time. The food was so delicious and the atmosphere is great for a date night. Overall our experience was really good and we will be coming back more often."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We went for our daughter's 19th birthday. We had 8 people in our party and were sat in the middle of the main dining area which was very loud to the point of not being able to communicate with the other people at the table. Waiters kept bumping into our seats and at one point almost dropped a plate of food on our table because there wasn't enough room for the waiters to get to other tables in the area. Also the food was some of the worst ever experienced at the restaurant. We ordered the rigatoni special with chicken but it had only 3 pieces of chicken and was very bland. It was a very disappointing dinner especially for a special occasion and one we didn't expect from this restaurant. We will not go back any time soon."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We are in this restaurant 2-3 x a month...our waiter was new, and everything was two minutes..if we heard this once, we hear a hundred times..no matter what was asked or needed. From having to order wines more than once to not getting a coffee heat up at end, and this goes with nothing happening with our retirement celebration...not even a candle on a dessert...................we had wanted to make this dear woman feel special. This waiter was literally running thru dining room, and not a busy night with poor weather. We actually got better service in promptness, and demeanor from the water station...which we tipped separately. We will going to Houston at end of month, and plan taking 20 folks.................hope all is better there."

  • "From seating to serving, to specially formed birthday candles and photos of our big group, everything was handled wonderfully on July 4th!"

  • "My wife and I came here for a fancy date night, and did not leave disappointed in the least! Everything from the appetizer to dessert was incredible and perfect. We took part on the "Make a Wish" 2-for-$60 3-course dinner special, and added a couple drinks in on top of it. Everything was absolutely amazing!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We've dined at Maggiano's many times since it opened. If you're in the mood for some basic Italian fare, it's a good place to eat. Do yourself a favor and make a reservation beforehand. The restaurant gets a lot of traffic since its location is tied to the Streets of Southpoint Mall. The place is always busy. Our service has always been consistently good and portions are huge, so come hungry!"

  • "With reservations we had no wait. We made several special requests to accommodate our VIP guest when reservations were made. All were in place before we arrived. Our server (Carlos) was FANTASTIC! He had a perfect balance between checking on our table but not stalking. A bit noisy if you're seated banquet style - cannot talk with guests at opposite end. Prices are moderate to high. Restaurant was spotless. All peripheral staff were pleasant and attentive. My only wish was that we could be seated while waiting for the entire party arrived. We were hungry and thirsty on arrival but had to wait for 20 minutes even though our table was ready. Would recommend!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We went on a Monday again; about 1:00pm, we ordered from the "house" pasta menu, the food seemed not so fresh. We have noticed this on occasion and of course we could be wrong. We have also been there on very busy nights and always enjoyed our food each time although we had to wait a little longer for our order it was always hot and fresh. On this day it was not very busy, my plate was hot but my lasagna was cold, and the bread just barely warm. Our service was awesome, of course the food is not the waiter/waitresses fault, so we will probably come when we think it is busy."

  • "Maggiano's is my wife's favorite place to eat, especially to celebrate sentinel dates in our life together. This night it was to celebrate our 16th wedding anniversary. Everything was as good as it has ever been, and we have never had a bad experience at the Durham restaurant."

  • "My boyfriend and I went on a date here, and absolutely loved it. Our food and drinks were fantastic, and on top of that the service was great. The server helped us make decisions and have good suggestions. We didn't have a need that wasn't met."
