    We had reservations and were seated the moment we arrived. The food was incredible, and our server never missed a beat. We had requested a quiet booth if possible, and they even delivered with that request. Reasonable prices, great food, friendly and excellent service...a perfect anniversary experience.

    We were rushed from the time were seated until the time we left. I ordered a lighter dish but it tasted like something from a frozen food entrée. Salad was good but wine has gone up to about 11 dollars per glass. I would rather have a good entrée at the time of dining that go home and heat up the second entrée at home. I appreciate the gesture but this experience was a big disappointment. The waiter did a million things but not a good job with us. Very disappointment. We have lots of choices in Nashville and I will have to look out for more Italian restaurants. Long time Maggianos fans but this was not a good night for them.

    We have tried other Italian restaurants in Nashville, and this was by far the best. Signature dishes as well as seasonal pasta such as the butternut squash. I was celebrating a birthday. Great place to celebrate. Our server, Tiffany, came to check on us frequently and was personable and fun! Love the family style option

    I fancy myself a bit of a foodie and was a little nervous going to a restaurant that offered take home portions with select meals. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the food. My husband and I ordered a bruschetta to start, it was one of the best I've had in a long time. I had the stuffed shell of the day and my husband had the baked ziti, both were delicious. Our caesar salad could have had more of a punch, but we added a bit of salt and it was okay. Both of our meals came with take home portions. We took those for lunch at work and both very happy with the quality. Overall the service was good, food staggered appropriately, and the food/amount given was worth the price. Would definitely recommend.

    If you're in the mood for Italian you can't go wrong at Maggiano's. You get what you expect in a beautiful old world setting. More food than you can eat, good service, fair number of affordable wines. There were many large groups in the house that night and they all looked really happy.

    We met good friends here for a late lunch and enjoyed it very much. The pick 2 option is perfect for a lunch menu. And our friends ordered the special and were able to take a pasta entry home for free. Our server was delightful and always there when we needed more coffee, but never felt rushed. Also, appreciated the parking garage. They do have valet, but not when we were there.

  • 21st Birthday Celebration
    Todd
    Dined on 11/16/2014
    We celebrated my daughters 21st Birthday here, because it is one of her favorite restaurants. The food was amazing as always. The server was friendly and courteous. We did have an extended period of time waiting for our food. A few of the tables around us had been seated after our table and had ordered after we did. They had their food and were finished eating before our food made it to the table. There were the same number of guests at the other tables, so we were not sure what happened with this. We were never given an explanation about it either. Other than that mishap, it was a very good dining experience.

    I love the whole atmosphere of this place! I took my dad for his birthday dinner, he got the Veal Parmesan again and it was wonderful. We also ordered the Steamed Mussels which were awesome. Best we have had! The Shrimp and Crab Canneloni were delicious and oh so rich. We went just the two of us, but were there previously with the whole family. Both times the service was impeccable, the drinks are great, and the whole experience was very nice. Would recommend this place to everyone!

    I prefer Frank Sinatra in the background as opposed to the live music. We were close to the bar and the live music was a distraction. The subtle music that runs throughout the rest of the restaurant is a much better addition to the overall experience

    I had been wanting to go here since my birthday in September and the opportunity came up this past weekend. I had been to Maggiano's once before as part of a work lunch function. I made a reservation because I know this place is always busy. I am glad I did! Price was great, food was great! I recommend the signature pasta's as you get to take one home which makes the value out of this world! I can't wait to go back again!

    We made a late 8:15 reservation for 5 on a Saturday night and the place was packed. We were seated at our reservation time and the service was perfect. Not sure how the wait staff manages as it seemed chaotic but we were well cared for and timing of the food and drink orders was as good as could be expected. We always had full drinks and the food came out without being rushed nor feeling like we were forgotten. Very pleased.

    Maggiano's is one of my favorite Italian restaurants in Nashville. It's a traditional place, with dark wood, oxblood leather booths, red and white checked tablecloths and the familiar strains of Tony, Frank and Dino in the background. The menu is traditional, too, focusing mainly on generous portions of time-honored favorites, prepared well. There are always a few more exotic options on the menu, and even the classics often have an interesting twist in seasoning or presentation to keep the Foodies engaged. Several in my group have enjoyed the new Lighter Take options, which offer a healthier but no less satisfying experience. And my wife really appreciates the many gluten-free options available. I've tried all of her picks (see below re: sharing!) and found them absolutely delicious. But the real emphasis here is on the kind of meals that could have come from the home kitchen of any Italian Mama who learned the art at her OWN grandmother's knee. This is the pure stuff, straight from the Old Country! Bring an appetite and a large group, so you can each share tastes of everyone else's selections, or opt for "family-style" dining. But -DO- share, or you'll definitely find yourself staring enviously at the platters bound for other tables. A final thought: if you're like me and feel no meal is truly complete without dessert...even if you're stuffed like a sausage after the entrees, you can still enjoy a little something sweet via their mini samplers. I particularly recommend the Chocolate Zuccotto Bites, which are rich and decadent but small enough that everyone can find room for one or two. Would I choose Maggiano's for that intimate, romantic anniversary meal-for-two? Maybe; maybe not. Would I choose it for a family get-together or when good friends visit from out-of-town? Absolutely! And I have.

    Dined on 11/8/2014
    This USED TO be a favorite place. However, after this visit, we will NOT be returning. We felt rushed, the food wasn't hot, and the coffee was lukewarm at best. When we asked about military discount, which had always been given previously, we were told it was only for active duty as their way of inviting those who had deployed to come to their restaurant. We explained the military members at our table had deployed 5 times, but this didn't matter because they were retirees. They did give us the discount because, "they didn't like to tell people no." If you're active duty, dine here if you choose. If you're a retiree, don't bother, because Maggiano's has no use for you. Way to support your veterans on Veteran's Day weekend, Maggiano's.

    I live in Bowling Green, KY and usually travel to Nashville once every few months for special occasions or a nice date night out. My wife and I used to visit different restaurants we didn't have at home every visit, but now we almost always choose Maggianos. The food is great, service is wonderful, and the prices are reasonable, considering what you get. If you enjoy Italian food this is the place to go in the Nashville area, just make sure you have a reservation.

    The fried zucchini is a great appetizer! Everyone's meal came out cold and we had to send them all back. The meal was hot the 2nd time around and tasted great. The portions are big and I was so full that I could not eat the Zuccotto cake we ordered for desert. I was surprised that nobody apologized for our food coming out cold to our whole table and just made the comment "we brought the food out as soon as it was ready, I will have these remade." -Ambiance: 5 stars -Food: 2 stars since everyone's food came out cold. -Service: 2 stars for nobody keeping our drinks topped off. *Overall: 2 stars, I was about to put 3 stars but since nobody made a visit to the table to apologize for our cold food...

We enjoyed the evening so much, the food, our conversation, it was perfect! From the moment we walked in to the moment we left, we were treated amazingly!

    This place is adequate. Once you're able to pass the wild and noisy mess of the front table, you'll find that this place is actually fine. Food was adequate, the wine list was adequate, and dessert was adequate. Service was slow, but the place was packed, so that's expected. The best deal is that you can take a bowl of pasta home, included in the price. That's what makes this place good.

    We had a great time. Our drinks from the bar were excellent. Our chocolate dessert was excellent. The fish & beef medallions were excellent. Pasta was average - very dry. Our waiter was entertaining - greeting us grandly. He had noted the comments on our reservation and addressed us each by name. He seemed to be stretched thin. He came by our table - took our drink order - came with drinks about 10 minutes later. Quickly ask if we were ready to order - we needed a couple more minutes - about 10 minutes later he came back by. Food was served. Waiter came by to see if everything came out fine - then didn't see him until we had all finished and were waiting to order dessert. Brought birthday cookies out - and dessert was fun!
