  • "Maggiano's is the perfect spot for our family to dine. The food is wonderful and plentiful. I cannot say enough about the service. We always look forward to returning, both picky eaters (1 ten year-old) and the rest of us foodies! "

  • "We have dined at Maggiano's since it first opened. It does not need to be a special occasion. My wife's' father is Italian. She also entered in the recipe contest for her "Oyster Carolini". She did not win. So we will pay our own way to Abruzzi. "

  • "Our waiter was very accommodating for such a large group. We didn't do the "family style dining" even though some wanted to & it was recommended. The waiter was very friendly and nice!"
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "My reservations were far in advance....asking for a nice table and that it was to celebrate a birthday for a first time visitor to "little Italy" . Temp was COLD, LOUD conversations, tables on top of each other, a waiter who came to our table eleven times and made us feel as if we were cattle being pushed through."

  • ""My experience at Maggiano's was excellent as always. One downside is if you get the family style plan on being there for a couple of hours and the chairs are not comfortable enough for two hours or more. I definitely will return. The chicken and spinach manicotti was delicious and the chocolate cake was out of this world.Service was ok waiter did not seem to be "on the ball" but will not discourage me from another visit."

  • "It was my Mothers 95th birthday and she loves Italian food and Maggiano's delivers. Service was good. It was a Saturday night so it was very full and noisy which is to be expected. They were very gracious to my Mom and remembered that it was her birthday and wished her a happy birthday! Food was good, they give vey healthy portions so we all brought home a goodie bag. Our go to restaurant for Italian food in this area."

  • "Usually a great place. For the first time we were seated on the second floor - with a reservation! The service was very slow, we had to ask where our food was, and it arrived warm - not hot. We both left saying it was not worth the $80 we spent for two meals."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "I have had a lot of meals at Maggiano's and this one wasn't as good as the others. The food, still amazing.. but the service wasn't good at all. I was disappointed by that considering it was a special occasion, and we only had 5 people, so it wasn't like it was a huge group! I understand that it was a busy Saturday night, but I expect better from my favorite restaurant."

  • "Chosee and I celebrated our seventh year anniversary, and there was no question as to which restaurant that we were going to. The food is always great and the service even when the place is packed is friendly and helpful and very tentative to you. I will always Chose this place over olive garden out any other Italian eatery!"

  • "I brought some out-of-town business guests and thoroughly enjoyed it. I asked for outdoor seating (location is an outdoor shopping mall with a pedestrian walkway), and even though they have only a few tables they made sure we got one of them. The food was outstanding - we all had something different and everyone enjoyed it. Drinks were reasonable and server (Trey Allen) was very attentive. This is my go-to place when I have out of town guests who want a relaxed dinner with great food and service."
    Dined on 4/3/2014
  • "The food is always amazing and the restaurant appearance was great. However I did not have any flowers on the table like I requested. My sister told me that when she made reservations before that she requested flowers and had them both times, and that is one thing that I was really looking forward to because I wanted to make the special occasion more special. I also will never allow the waitress I had to wait on me again. I did not find her friendly and she barely ever checked on us. I am okay with having not the best service at a place life waffle house but a place like Maggiaons I except superb service which was not given. Even my date was very bothered by her services and that made me quiet unhappy."

  • "We enjoyed most of the food except will never order steak family style it was raw and chewy sirloin not what we expected and device was fair our waiter was all over the place except at our table since gratuity is already added to large parties maybe service was not as important the busser took our plates before all the food came out just seemed very slow"

  • "Every time we pass by this restaurant, there are a lot of people dining. So, we wanted to give it a try. I made a reservation beforehand but still when we arrived on time, we had to wait for about 10 minutes, which was fine for us. Then we were led to a relatively nice table instead of those near to the entrance door, which I appreciated. However, what made me unhappy was the food itself. We ordered two specialty pasta which sounded very fancy from the menu. Mine was good, but my husband's dish was totally a disaster. They actually forgot to add sauce which is very important to pasta. And this made the dish tasteless. We probably will not go back to this restaurant anymore and will not recommend it to anyone who want good quality."

  • "We ordered family style and we were not real happy. There were four of us and we ordered Spaghetti and Meatballs, only received one meatball for four people to share. The profiteroles were stale tasting. Felt like the cost was quite high for what we received. I would be hesitant to do family style again."

  • "This was our first visit to Maggiano's and we LOVED it. We told our waitress it was our first visit and she recommended the chef make us an appetizer on the house! Great service, great food, and great atmosphere!! Not to mention great prices."

  • "Maggiano's is on my favorite restaurants list, but I am considering removing it. The quality is waning in the taste and look of the food and the attentiveness and carefulness of the server. It will likely be a while before I return."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "EVERYTHING was great about the restaurant and would be more than happy to recommend it to anyone. However, my particular server was horrid! Next time I go back, I will request not to have him."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food at the restaurant was fantastic, with good service. The food we took home was not exactly what we asked for. We ordered meals that allowed you to have one at the restaurant, and then a meal to take home. We asked if a different sauce could be substituted on the meal that we took home. We were told it could. We discovered that the sauce we wanted was not substituted, but given as a side item and we were told it was additional sauce. The original sauce that we didn't want was all over the pasta and was not easy to try to take off as it contained a lot of ingredients we didn't like. Customers should not be told one thing and then the kitchen do another."

  • "I RSVP early in the AM in regards to dinner w/ my husband & in doing so the RSVP area had a special request box. I specifically asked to sit in a booth just past the bar doors far right corner which I believe would have been table 51. I made RSVP for 7:30 PM. My spouse called @ 7:10 to confirm the RSVP and notify that we're in route. I got there checked in at 7:25 and didn't get seated until 7:50PM. Then the host tried to sit me near the elongaged credenza in the hard chairs & it wasn't an intimate space @ all. Question: Why ask for special request when RSVP a table if you don't accomodate guest's wishes. It took 15 min before the buss staff flagged the table w/H2O. took an additional 11 minuted for the waiter to bring the menus."

  • "If you want a bit of a variety, grab a few friends and/or family and eindulge in the family style... that's what go for so we can enjoy a multiple amount of appetizers, entrees and dessert... though We always go with the creme bruelee"

  • "Last Friday I took my family to Maggiano's and we had a fantastic dining experience. Trey, our waiter, was attentive and gave us perfect service. Seeing the bottle of wine that I had ordered he gave a detailed description of another bottle of similar type that he suggested I try. Some waiters can seem obnoxious while making a sell, but he did not. He was not pushy and I will look for that bottle of wine in the future. It was my first time trying the family style meal and I was impressed. The food never stops coming and is of high quality. My wife is a fantastic cook, so when we go out to eat we want to go places where the meals cannot be easily re-created at home. Maggiano's food, service, and environment are exceptional."

  • "Beware of pre-ordering - it is not always a time savings and may result in you getting less attention from the wait staff."

  • "I'm glad I made reservations ahead of time. Waiters were very kind and food was delivered timely. Delicious. As for kids, it would be great to have more variety and kid friendly utensils. The fork was way to big for a small child and no spoons."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "My first impression was not favorable. When I make a reservation, I don't expect to be handed a pager and told to wait for a table. What's the point of the reservation then? It was extremely noisy and crowded, you had to scream at each other to have a conversation. It would have been much more enjoyable if it was not so open. The Caesar salad and bread was very good. The fried zucchini appetizer was tasty. The dinners were fair tasting, and mine was not hot enough at all, and this was a disappointment. The creme brûlée was so-so, the sugar top was too thick. I will say that the server was very attentive and did an exceptional job on his part. Overall, we went because we were given a gift card, but I would not go back if I had to pay for it"
