Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "We arrived a few minutes before our reservation and were seated immediately (Thanks Open Table)!. Very impressed with being seated so quickly! We were finally greeted by our waiter, he finally came back and took our order. The food was delivered by someone else but the waiter NEVER came back to check on us to see if everything was alright, if we needed anything..NOTHING! We have usually had good service but we were only (party of 4 only). The waiter put down the check, we asked the waiter to tally up the entire bill and it would be split between my sister and I. He came back with my parents bill on one and the ticket for my sister and I were divided. We asked again and finally corrected. I was disappointed"

  • "Rarely do my son, husband, & myself have a chance to get together. Thank you for making our moment special. The option for an online reservation greatly helped. The hostesses seated us quickly. Our waiter was awesome & efficient. He even took pics for us! The food was delicious. The atmosphere was great; the restaurant wasn't so crowded, & I noticed tables were "bussed" as soon as people left. Thanks so much to your establishment for excellent service!"

  • "Food, as always was great. We had a reservation for 8. Two of our party were arriving later for dessert. They did not let us have a table for 8--only for 6, so when our last two guests arrived we had to squeeze in on a 6 topper. I was disappointed in that. It was Father's Day and they were busy, however, there were plenty of tables where people were not sitting, and I cannot understand why they did this."

  • "Maggiano's has food you can count on to be consistently good. The chopped salad is great and the pasta dishes are bountiful and tasty. The dessert was excellent, an apple crostada."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The server was superb though we were seated upstairs and it was freezing. A woman at the table next to us had napkins on her shoulders to keep warm. People at the other table left to get a coat from the car. This was very uncomfortable and did not lend itself to a pleasant dining experience. We asked twice for the AC to be turned down and we did not notice any change in the temperature. We did not want to stay for desert because we were so cold. The food tasted more bland than usual and my brother was disappointed that the gnocci was no longer on the classic menu."

  • "A chain of restaurants with good but not stellar Italian food that trends to large portions as one of their draws. The bread is semi-crusty Italian served with olive oil with some cracked pepper. Wines are run of the mill. There is a wide variety of pastas available, the house marinara and meat sauces tend to be somewhat ordinary and more sweet than garlicky. Pasta is cooked well and not overcooked, but could be drained somewhat better. One cautionary note - the red clam sauce is extremely spicy (at least the night we were there) and over-laden with red pepper flakes, so much so that it totally overpowered the taste of the clams and had to be sent back. Fish dishes are excellent. Sauces with cream or cheese tend to run heavy."

  • "If you have a reservation, be prepared to wait 20 minutes anyway. Pretty annoying for a large group. Food was very good as usual, but I didn't like how they called me ahead of time to commit me to being on time, then showed no interest in accommodating me at the reservation time. Either seat me or don't allow me to make the reservation you can't handle."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Peppercorn-crusted Sirloin and Grilled Salmon Lemon & Herb were certainly overcooked. We ordered our sirloin medium but it was like well done. The gilled salmon was so dry. Gnocchi & italian Sausage was disappointing also. However we really enjoyed the Steamed Mussels, calamari Fritté, and Spinach salad."

  • "We had a reservation for 5 of us though it was unnecessary as the restaurant was mostly wide open. The first attempt at seating us was in a booth better suited for 4 people. Their only other option was directly next to the only large party seated at a long table in the middle of the restaurant. It was very noisy as there were many children who obviously were not happy. Food was pretty good, service was extremely slow and overall a terrible experience. We decided we would never be back."

  • "I have been to Maggiano's to eat several times. This time I was very disappointed in the resturant in whole. I was called the day before to confirm my reservation for seating of 20, I was told to get there 15 minutes early. Only to have to wait 45 minutes for my patry to get seated. Normally someone would come and tell you thank you for waiting w aplolgize for the wait this did not happen at all. I can tell you that if I ever have to make a dinner celebration event ever again it will not be at Maggiano's in South Durham"

  • "This is one of our nearby favorites since the menu is consistently good, service is consistently good, and it's always clean with an inviting atmosphere! They family-style option is great for larger parties. We currently love the special that allows you to order a classic dish to eat in-restaurant, and the chef provides another one (with heating instructions) to take home for later."

  • "The wait time for server to take drink order or greet us once seated was longer than we expected and left us wanting to get up and leave."

  • "It took our server an hour to bring out the appetizers. Then another hour to bring out the entrees. When a 3rd hour had passed and we still hadn't been offered coffee or our dessert we had to complain to the manager to get service. The server tried to blame it on the kitchen until we pointed out to the manager that all the surrounding tables our server was not responsible for had already been served and left and they arrived after us. The food was outstanding but the ridiculous slow service ruined the night."

  • "Maggiano's is well known to the area and well established which is why I expected to be dissapointed. Actually, i had the Salmon and orzo and was quite blown away. The salmon was vey fresh, perfectly prepared and the flavors very delicatly balanced to provide both delicacy befitting the fish type and strength of chracter to satsify the pallet. Actually one of the best Salmon dished I have ever had! My daughter said her eggplant parmesan was fabulous. The calamari was excellent....the bruschetta was OK...bread tasted stale rather than toasted. Our waiter Pablo dealt with 5 12 year olds so very playfully and nicely and topped the evening with a nice desert plate with candles on the house since it was my daughter's 12th bday. Nice experience."
