    This was my first time eating at MAGGIANO'S and it was very good. Food was very tasty, seating area was comfortable, was very crowded and not noisy. That was a plus 10 alone. The restaurant is beautifully designed. Inside and outside. Elegant. Can't wait to go back. I Drove 55 miles to get there and I will do it again.

    We went with two people who have never gone to Maggiano's and ordered from the family style menu. They thought the food was very good and liked the choices. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and the new healthier choices.

    Once again had a wonderful meal at Maggiano's. They have a new lighter side that is simply delicious. I got the baked ziti. They substituted chicken sausage for the port sausage and made the sauce lighter. But they made it with alot of flavor and I believe they cut it to half the calories. You have to try it!! Very tasty.

    Bi-monthly diners at Maggiano's, we were very disappointed Saturday evening when we entertained our house guests. Our reservation for 7pm was made a couple days earlier and we were seated in a lovely booth per our request. Our server was very friendly, but he commented that our below issues were with the beverage/food runners. Our bottle of wine never arrived until we inquired about it when our warm/tepid entrees were served. Only one couple was served the salad ordered; the other couple received their salad after getting the attention of our waiter and asking what happened. Hence, salad served and the entrees probably sat finished under a warming light due to this screw up. Very disappointing.

    We always look forward to stopping at Maggiano's whenever were in the area. Most of the time we have a great meal with great service. This night was no exception. This is a very busy place so if you want to not wait for a hour or two.... that's not unheard of... you need to make a reservation.

    Wanted to try the newer "lighter" menu so I ordered the chicken parm. Not as good as the original but good for a reduced calorie dish. It was better the second day when I ate the leftovers. Old menu item crabcakes were as good as ever. No lighter but good. The server was outstanding.

    Ordered soup took 3 people to find a spoon, by then you guessed it the soup was cold. Wanted desert but waiter never asked. Salad had no dressing on it, to bad there was no waiter to ask for dressing. Food was cold. The list is endless. Save your money, plenty of other choices in the area.

    We have been to Maggiano's countless times. This time we both felt that the food was not up to previous standards. I had chicken marsala which did not have much flavor and my wife had eggplant parmigiana in a too sweet sauce. The portions were smaller than they used to be. As an appetizer we had a flatbread to share and that was excellent. If it were not for the flatbread, I would have reduced my rating to two stars.

    We had a dinner here with our 4 and 7 year old. Our girls are a little sensitive to dairy, so we try to keep their dairy to a minimum. We didn't say anything and decided to just order, but our 7 year old said something, after that both the manager and waiter tried to be as accommodating as possible having the kitchen leave dairy out of certain things etc. We did the family style dining light menu. We had the chop salad which we felt was a little heavy on the dressing, the calamari was as expected, the bruschetta was good. The spaghetti and meatballs were fine, but the mushroom ravioli was really good! Perhaps the food was nothing spectacular, but the restaurant was very friendly even though we had kids and some dietary restrictions.

    Maggiano's is one of the best Italian restaurants around. Yes, I know it is a chain, but the portions are HUGE (you can make 3 meals out of the lasagna!), and the service has always been wonderful. The food is excellent; it is well-prepared and flavorful without being too heavy on the spice. I'm not sure about spicy dishes there since I never order them, but I'd be willing to be that if you asked to make something extra spicy, your request would be accommodated with no problem. An excellent restaurant worth the money (you'll have good leftovers!).

    The Triangle area has a number of very good restaurants and Maggiano's is one of them. The food and service is consistently very good. We try new selections from the family style list every time we go and we have yet to be disappointed with any dish we've ordered. My only criticism this night was our table was wobbly. The wait staff stabilized it a bit, but it should be fixed properly or taken out of service. Nothing like seeing two bottles of good wine swaying back and forth.

    Over all, we had a fabulous experience. We were first seated at a table that was nestled between the two doors to the kitchen. The noise level of dishes bring brought back and tossed in a bin for cleaning, the gathering of wait staff and their conversations, was awful. We were shouting to talk over it all. When we mentioned it to our server - who was wonderful, we were moved immediately. That table should be eliminated. Otherwise great experience.

    We were celebrating our daughter's 21st birthday. We decided to do the family style menu - my daughter did most of the selections. Apps were Bruschetta, Cheese and Zucchini. Entrees were Salmon (superb), chicken piccata, baked ziti and gnocchi with sausage (daughter loves the sausage in that dish); desert was cheese cake and crème brulee. Every dish was absolutely on point, even the refills. Service was prompt and the waitress was very attentive. We have eaten at Maggiano's several times in the past and had good meals, but this was absolutely one of the best meals I have had in a long while. We all had a great time, went home stuffed and with food for another meal. A great way to celebrate a birthday.

    Great food at a good price. Yes most people say they are a bit pricey but for the quality of there food and service I disagree. My girlfriend and I ordered the dinner for 2 and we ended up taking home enough food for 4 more meals. Someone at my table had a problem with one of their orders and one of the chefs came out and personally made it right.

    My husband and I went to Maggianos for dinner and the food was pretty good. One of the pasta dishes was not as good as we had remembered, but most of the pasta dishes were good as was the zucchini fritte appetizer. It was my husband's birthday and the fish dish he wanted to order was sold out. The restaurant was so noisy we could barely talk. Moreover, we had reservations and ended up being seated in a thoroughfare. Though the waiter was charming and the food mostly good, the noise level and hustle and bustle made it hard to talk to each other. It was intrusive and unpleasant. The next time we do Maggianos, we think we'd prefer take out.
