Atmosphere perfect for family to get together in comfortable setting to celebrate family milestone. Thoroughly enjoyed by all!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day at MaggianosDue to the location of this restaurant in downtown Philadelphia, use public transportation to get there. The walk won't be more than 2 blocks. When we arrived, we found a very busy restaurant, We were about 15 minutes early, yet, they were ready to seat us. Our server, Dominic immediately came over to our table with ice water. Then, he asked us if were wanted anything to drink other than water. When he returned he took our food order while delivering bread to the table. Our food came out in a timely manner, drinks refilled as needed etc. The food was excellent. The order size was more than enough. Everything was great. We had no room for dessert. 3 of the 4 of us took food home. The price is not cheap and not expensive but worth it.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTastyWe were seated within 10 minutes of arriving despite it was Mother's Day!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian food!We have been fans of Maggianos for years. This past weekend we invited another couple to join us who had never been there before. They were very impressed with the family style dinner and raved over the food. We will all be going back again!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice spot in PhillyThe Delmonico steak was insanely delicious, make sure you order it medium.. The environment seemed to have attracted many regulars ... Bartenders are really good and for the most part I was impressed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a mother's dayWe went for a mother's day dinner, and as usual had a great time.

I love this place my new number 1!!!!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMStuffed!I brought a group of six guys for my brothers bachelor party. I had decided on the family style menu before hand and ordered a good variety of food for us. I hadn't ever eaten at maggiano's before, but had a good expectation due to a recommendation by my uncle. We were not disappointed. The food never stopped coming to our table. Three hours of continuous eating and our waiter was still trying to bring us more food. We will be back soon and often.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat happened to the portions?In an attempt to maintain reasonable costs Maggiano's has dramatically decreased the portion size of many of its entrees. For example the eggplant parmigiana that we were served was ludricously small. The staff was incredibly generous in trying to rectify the situation (bringing another portion, offering a replacement entree, even bring a complimentary dessert) and that was greatly appreciated. However we will think twice about returning for fear of being served another entree of shrinking size.
Of note, the pasta entree was still reasonable in amount.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-mothers day dinner!!!Every time I go to Maggiano's its like the first time and I fall in love again. The good was delish!!! As always and our server Kristy was courteous and professional. I'll definitely go back for the first time...again!

Generous portions of shellfish in their mussels appetizer and linguine di mare! Everything tasted quite fresh; the gnocchi with Italian sausage in vodka tomato sauce did not disappoint. Great for a date or a group, and the drinks are reasonable (I felt their Manhattan was a bit sweet, but I usually take my bourbon on the rocks anyways).4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.

I wish you would come to Kansas City!!!! We had a great meal and love their smaller desserts! Our server, T was awesome!!!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMComing back soonVery nice restaurant. Always have a good time there. Went for my fiancé 's birthday and she enjoyed it. Not the first time for either of us. The first entree she ordered she didn't care for, and they took it back with no problems and bought her something else. When the bill came they had forgotten to take the one entree off and I thought to myself, " no wonder it wasn't a problem to take it back, they still charge you for it!" But when I bought it there attention they took it off with no problem. We will be going back with our new family very soon.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks the the PhiladelphiaThanks the the Philadelphia team for working with our party of 40! The food was great and the servers were on a roll. Thank you again for making our special occasion, just that...special and stress free!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful,Everything was wonderful, except where we were seated. The family side with all the children running around, screaming, and not being retrained was EXTREMELY aggrevating. If I recommend the restaurant, I will surely tell adults to request that they NOT BE SEATED ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE RESTAURANT. If it wasn't for that, I would have had an exquisite birthday dinner.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCenter City Maggiano's isCenter City Maggiano's is a reliably favorite spot of mine. It's within easy walking distance. The service is good to outstanding, the food is reliably consistent and good, and the crowd--while usually noisy--gives off a good, energetic vibe. The guests I bring here love the location and ambiance, and the prices are more than reasonable. I'll keep coming back.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent. WeThe food was excellent.

Selecting an early dining time really improves the experience in this large, well appointed and busy location. The service was excellent - welcoming, attentive and not smothering. The menu offers so many choices of well done Italian fare. The Maggiano's salad was excellent and both our pasta specialities were very well prepared and tasty. Portions are more than generous. Drink offerings are also very good and the moderate wine list makes it easy to find a nice glass. It's a fun place to have a good meal in a vibrant atmosphere in the heart of the city.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dining in Center CityA friend and I celebrated my birthday over lunch at Magggiano's and had a very pleasant time. Located in a beautiful historic building, the restaurant feels like its about 80 years old, but has only been there for 11 years. The staff was friendly and seated us at a window-side booth. We were glad to have arrived at 12:00 because by 1:00 the restaurant was full. The menu has many tempting choices, especially the appetizers, which are entree-size. We shared delectable stuffed mushrooms, I enjoyed sausage and peppers and a copious spinach salad, and my friend had excellent crab cakes. Wines can be purchased in 6- or 9-ounce glasses, which is a nice feature.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten here many times.I've eaten here many times. As always it was a great experience.
