Maggiano's - Durham
What took me so longThis was my first time to Maggiano's Durham and we loved it. The food was tasty and the Meal for two came in handy. Everyone that I was with for Mother's day was happy with this restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Mother's Day lunchMy wife requested Maggiano's for her Mother's Day lunch with myself and our two daughters again for the second year in a row. We love the crispy zucchini appetizer and most of the desserts and feel like we get a good deal on the entree's because we take home several meals worth of leftovers. The service was excellent despite the restaurant being packed.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst ate at Maggianos inFirst ate at Maggianos in Philadelphia and fell in love with the food and ambiance several years ago. We live in Greensboro but we drive to Durham to enjoy your restaurant. Definitely one of my favorites!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgraduation perfectionWe knew Maggiano's was well recommended, but had never been when we took our daughter and family there to celebrate her college graduation. The table was ready on time on an incredibly busy day. Service was excellent. The food far surpassed our expectations, and we were expecting something big! We sat on the indoor balcony overlooking the main dining room. Loved it! Would definitely go again for such an occasion and recommend it without reservation to others. It was fairly loud on this busy day (mother's day and UNC graduation day), but that was understandable and to be expected. So glad we chose Maggianos!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great!I took my mom and aunt to Maggiano's for Mother's Day. As always, the food and service was excellent. I have been to Maggiano's several times before, and I can't wait for my next visit!! Thank you!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love eating at the Maggiano'sWe love eating at the Maggiano's in Durham and Charlotte. It had been a while since we'd eaten at the Durham establishment. Our only complaint was that the waiter (an older gentleman) seemed bothered when we asked for anything. For example, he acted like it was an inconvenience to get a children's menu. Our child is 10 (almost 11) and is tall, and he acted like we were lying about the age. He either misunderstood or forgot to get the drink order for one in our party, so when he brought drinks and we told him the other person still needed a drink, he acted aggravated. He just gave us the feeling that we were ridiculous and not "worthy" of eating at such a nice restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMbetter than 5 starsI wish I could give our experience better than 5 stars! My son commissioned as a Navy officer and graduated from NC State so we had a big group for dinner. Upon entering, the hostess and management staff were welcoming and helpful. They readied our table and seated us quickly. Once seated the knowledgeable waitress was spot on all evening. She handled all 16 of us like a pro answering all our questions and accomodating special dietary requests. Then of course there's the food which was delightful, delicious, and plentiful. I cannot give this experience enough compliments. Thank you to everyone at Maggiano's Durham for a wonderful evening!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat A PleasureWe were doing a late lunch just before a movie at this complex. A very warm welcome greeted us. Our Server welcomed us and was available to answer Qs about the great menu. The food was very good - just shy of excellent. The amount of food served was far more than we would ever be able to finish at one seating. We both agree we will be back!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian resturantI was been there ariund 6 time its very nice and i always I go there and I recommend this resturant a number one for food and service it's a best one5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place to dine.Have never left disapointed always good food and service. Would highly recommend. Need more locations to enjoy more.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!It was my family's' first time at Maggiano's. Everybody was satisfied with the food and service.

The atmosphere was romantic as well.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMchefthe chef was outstanding, the food was prepared very well and he actually came out n talked to us. The chef made us a special dish of his (zucchini) it was great.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMHad the Chicken Piccata andHad the Chicken Piccata and the Tiramisu for a birthday dinner. It was fantastic. My friends and I will be dining at Maggiano's again soon!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI'm coming backI was impressed by the appetizer gifts for being a first time guest. Then the deal of ordering a classic pasta dish and taking home an equally delicious classic pasta dish at no extra charge. I felt like I was definitely on the receiving end. Our waitress was very attentive and took great care of us. I want to come back.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service, great comfort food!Great individual service is always had at Maggianos. we always go early because this location gets busy and loud. the Happy HOUR drink specials are good, but limited. The best part is on most nights you choose a entree and get to take home a second serving of the entree. Frugal folks will love this!
Food quality is very good and there are some interesting items besides the usual.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was very good andThe food was very good and the service also very good. Authenic Italian food.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMVery crowded, but that's greatVery crowded, but that's great for business. All customers were placed as quickly as possible. Shared salad overpriced for the quality of salad. Bread forgotten until requested, but then brought out right away. Everything else lovely and delicious. Our table server charming and attentive. Offered 2 additional take-home entrees which more than made up for any overlooked areas. And the manager made rounds to ask us about our experience, as well. Thank you for an enjoyable night out!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful!!My wife and I went on a Friday night. We couldn't have asked for a greater experience. The food is made from scratch when you order it so everything was fresh and delicious. I could have stood the lighting to be a little brighter, but it was probably dor mood and didn't take away from anything. Our waitress was awesome! She wasn't there all the time but always seemed to be there before I had to ask for anything. We had great food and plenty to take home. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's is a fun placeMaggiano's is a fun place for people to gather. We went there for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The food was good and the service was better than most restaurants.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spring Outing for Co-workersEach month a group of us, who all work together, meet for lunch or dinner. For April we had a suggestion to meet at SouthPoint and have lunch and so some shopping. I immediately thought of Maggiano's because I had been there before, and the food and service was exceptional. Everyone agreed to meet there and the result was nothing short of pleased. All my co-workers said this was the best monthly outing we've done in a while. Thank you for your commitment to excellent food and wonderful service!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWait StaffThe staff was the absolute best. We were all very pleased and left an extra tip.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMService more consistent than food.I had a lovely birthday dinner with my mom and the server, Kelly, was great. Unfortunately, my mom's shrimp scampi was bland. My crab and shrimp cannelloni was fantastic, though.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I have had severalMy wife and I have had several experiences at Maggiano's at Southpoint Mall in Durham, NC which have all been excellent.

I love their buy-1-get-1 pasta deal where you get to take one home for later. It makes Maggiano's easily doable for a person on a budget, while still getting the classy restaurant ambiance and experience. Be sure to make a reservation, as they are always busy.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was my Mother's 60th birthdy,It was my Mother's 60th birthdy, and we could not have had a better dining experience!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had such a fantastic waitressWe had such a fantastic waitress in Sarah (Southpoint, Durham). When I made the reservation, it was for our 15th wedding anniversary. I asked to make sure they had a wine that we love on their list. When we arrived, the waitress knew that I requested the wine and immediately offered us a glass.
For dessert they brought out candles to celebrate. Fantastic time.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, service and ambianceFood, service and ambiance are always top notch.

So, two wonderful dinners for the price of one!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggianos - never a disappointment!Our table was ready when we arrived - a definite plus! The wine list provided a good selection. The chicken marsala was served with very small mushrooms which made it tastier rather than large cut up ones! So delicious! Even though it was a very busy day, Easter, every thing was timed perfectly.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy first visit to Maggiano'sMy first visit to Maggiano's was in Philadelphia several years ago and I fell in love with the food, atmosphere, etc. I live in Greensboro, NC, and as often as possible, I make the trip to Durham, NC, because it is one of my favorite restaurants!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten Free BluesUnfortunately, I am on a gluten free diet. The only GF pasta they had was ziti. I was told that a chef would come over if I had any special needs. I would have preferred a GF menu, as most restaurants now have.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to Maggiano's to celebrateWe went to Maggiano's to celebrate my nephews 16th birthday and it was an Excellent choice!!! There were 6 in our group and we ordered the Classic Family Style with Calamari, Bruschetta, and Mozzerella Marinara for appetizers an they all were wonderful. Then we had Spaghetti and meatballs, Taylor Street Baked Ziti, Ghnocchi and Italian Sausage, and Four Cheese Ravioli as our main course and we stuffed ourselves with delicious foos. And even though we were stuffed we managed to eat the creamiest cheese cake AND the BEST Tiramisu I ever had. Our server was very attentive and provided us with outstanding service. We will definitely will go back soon!!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood evening out.We had a wonderful time. We requested Jessica but were served by Juan. That is the 3rd time that this has happened.
The food was amazing as always, and it was a quiet evening out. We had a good experience overall.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA meal to remember (and repeat).The four ladies in my party were all very impressed with Maggiano's. We arrived for our reservation about a half-an-hour early but were still seated promptly. The restaurant is very large, but not loud or the tables too close to each other. Each of us had a different dish and each was delicious. I got the buy-one-meal, take-one-home pasta special for $12.95. Both meals were very good and what a treat to have the extra meal to take home, which my husband thoroughly enjoyed, and also made him want to come next time.
We also shared a chocolate marshmallow torte dessert that was too much for one, but fabulous for the four of us, sweet and gooey and wonderful.
The service was accommodating, but not intrusive.
We very much enjoyed our visi3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEXCELLENTI LOVE Maggiano's Little Italy. The service is always fantastic, and the food is great. Great variety of pastas and so delicious.

We will return!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great serviceExcellent waitstaff. Good food -some dishes great, like the lasagna, some dishes just okay, like the Alfredo. Ask the waitstaff about vegetarian friendly food, because some dishes that seem like they are vegetarian really aren't, like the Bowtie Aglio. We came in a party of 8 and had a 6:45 reservation. We still had to wait to be seated for about 10 minutes, but they were already telling walk-ins there was a wait of over 1 hour. It was very loud and very crowded, but the seating was comfortable, not too cramped. The service was great, answering all our questions, even the one obnoxious person in our party. Our server handled it with grace and humor.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a Great time our waiterHad a Great time our waiter was the best! The food was awesome .3/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
