Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant was bustling the entire time we were there. The waitress was friendly and informative. The steak was done perfectly. THE SALMON OSCAR WAS FABULOUS!!!!!!! Pack a doggie bag because you need to have dessert. We had the Boston Creme Pie. The slice was huge. In fact, too large for one person. Despite this we devoured the entire slice. Maggiano's offers coupons for various discounts and special offers. It is a great after work place to meet and eat."

  • "The food portions were big and the food in general was delicious. It was a bit noise but no big deal. The waiter was very nice and also kindly took a pic of us with my phone when I asked him to."

  • "Food was delicious, waiter was excellent and even accommodated my dietary needs. The chef made an appearance at my table to break down all the ingredients. That's service and it should be valued. Would recommend to anyone!"

  • "Love Maggianos! Have been back again and again. Have had dinner for special events there and the family style is a crowd pleaser. It is so fun to go with a group for a night out too! Last time I took my 4 year old daughter and She loved it! Kids menu is fantastic!"

  • "Food quality has declined, service average. Several open dirty tables at 6pm on Saturday, no sense of urgency to seat the mass of guests waiting to eat. Family style...entrees came out 5 minutes after apps."

  • "Parking cost was outrageous. Took forever to get our dinner. One of our guests was served cold garlic potatoes. Took longer to receive our desserts . I would not go there again. It was a waste of money"

  • "Our waiter was professional, the food was excellent. Overall we had a very good experience. It was weird that they were out of lasagna on a Sunday night. The only thing constructive that I could say would be that the food wasn't hot enough when it was brought out. It wasn't "cold", and we didn't send anything back but it could have come out hotter."

  • "As a visitor to Philly and knowing nothing about the neighborhood, we found this restaurant and it is only 1block away from our hotel. It was extremely convenient on a rainy evening. We decided to give a try. Fortumately, the food was very good, affordable wine selections and service was very good. We will defonitey recommend it to our friends."

  • "Very enjoyable dinner, pre-theater. Food was above average, and reservation honored. Service was good and friendly. Portions were single sized and generous. Will definitely try again. First time time to this location."

  • "I would love to tell everyone to stay away & scare them into not crowding this restaurant, but that's part of the charm! Make a reservation no matter when you plan on having a bite there or just stop in, just don't be surprised if the bar area is full and there's a long wait for a table! Love the food from steals to pasta to salads! Don't miss the fried zucchini appetizer. Sometimes I go just for that, but have never had a meal there without it! I can get quite loud I the dining rooms../..just like dinner at my Italian family's kitchen!"

  • "'Chef' made Italian food for less than Olive Garden. My girlfriend and I each got a meal (fish for me, pasta for her) and a dessert, and shared an appetizer and the total bill was less than $50. Only complaint was that we had a reservation at 8:30 and were only seated around 9:00. Having a reservation only saved us about 15 minutes as the wait was 45 minutes."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Maggiano's is a good choice for someone who is unwilling to explore Philly and discover real Italian food. The atmosphere is exciting and accommodating of large groups; the restaurant is welcoming. The service was fair - I didn't like that I had to ask for my water glass to be refilled. The food is average - when in Philly, I can think of many other options for excellent Italian food."

  • "This was a birthday celebration dinner and our group had an early reservation in order to make a theater performance. The food was outstanding with generous portions. The house salad was particularly delicious served in chilled bowls. We ordered an excellent wine, but when the waiter poured a sample, it was rather diminutive. Our servers were a 7 on a scale of 10 for being attentive, a surprising flaw since we were right beside the waiters' station. Overall the food was enjoyable and the prices were reasonable."

  • "Maggiano's was a fun time for me and my fiance'. We went for his birthday and we really enjoyed ourselves. The atmosphere was lively and our waitress was divine. The entree' that I chose was not to my liking and she had wonderful suggestions and didn't have a problem returning and suggesting something different, which turned out to be fabulous."

  • "Was my birthday and wanted to celebrate in an upbeat environment. My sons are big eaters and Maggianos is generous with their portions . Always consistent- each dish is unique and tasty and priced right"

  • "I've been to Magianno's several times herein Charlotte, so I am familiar wiith the quality. Many Italian restaurants in Phila, but didn't feel in the mood to experiment. Menu is the same, so I knew what I was getting. The Caesar salad was obviously pre-made, so not anything special. Shrimp Scampi was however excellent-- more shrimp than any other scampi I have ever had- and very good-sized and tender. Service was just OK, but I was by myself, and really just interested in getting in and getting out. I am sure I could have had a more elegant meal in Phila, but if you're looking for very good and consistent Italian food, look no further."

  • "Food was very ample portions, service attentive but not intrusive, noise level generally fine for conversations, restaurant well full with dinners at most popular hours."

  • "We go to Maggianos for special occasions such as birthdays and graduations. This visit was for my birthday. The place was crowded as usual on a Saturday night, but we found seats at the bar while we waited for our table. The food was very good; we always do family style. There were leftovers to take home. Service was great. This is a reliably good place to celebrate special occasions."

  • "There was alot of energy at Maggianos. Service was very attentive, quick and friendly. Our waitress was knowedgeable and chatty, in a good way. i wish they had a bigger wine selection but what they did have was ok. would definately go again if I was in the area. My dinner was fresh, large portion but a little bland. i had the chef country style pasta. the chicken sausage in it was delicious though."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We went to Maggiano's because it was within walking didtance from our hotel and because of the positive TravelAdvisor reviews. The good food was a given, but they said we would have to wait to be seated. This was a Saturdaycnight in Philly. I saw an OpenTable link, clicked it and got a reservation instantly. Sold!"

  • "Was a good restaurant. Very crowded. Glad we had reservations. Was noisy on a Saturday night."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Good Food prepared on site (not just warmed up), inviting atmosphere and attentive service . Pasta with meet sauce could have used just a bit more sauce. (Though not so dry that more was asked for.) Chicken Francese was delicious."

  • "We had eaten at this restaurant before and enjoyed it. Our last visit was disappointing. The manicotti was burned and the sauce had no taste. The only good thing was the lovely waitress."

  • "My best friend and I try to eat at Maggianos when we are treating ourselves to a special lunch or dinner. It never disappoints us. I was surprised that the platter size had shrunk compared to the amount of food we had in the past. I guess it was to be expected. We were both disappointed that the lunch we had had on several occasions was no longer on the menu. I believe it was called Chicken Caprise."

  • "I've been to this location before. The food's consistent, a crowd-pleaser type place with traditional Italian restaurant fare. Great portions, good food. Prices are decent for city standards and the ambience is friendly. However, our waiter brought me the wrong entree and made no apology when I indicated this. He brought the correct order after my companians had finished eating and the check still listed the "wrong" entree. His service was sporatic and badly-timed. My freinds left before I paid the bill so I could not verify their drink orders, but I also think an extra drink ($) was added to the bill. Not typical, per my previous visits. But if this had been my first, I wouldn't return.."

  • "Lunch was very busy. Our server was slow to return to our table, which became problematic. That can vary by server, so I hope this was an exception rather than the rule here. This is a great location for close proximity to The Convention Center. The food and prices were good, although a glass of wine can really jack up the bill. The tomato soup was too spicy for my guest's taste and before we could flag down our server, our entrees arrived. The staff member who brought our entrees said the soup would be taken off the bill, but it wasn't. Although there were a few snafus, the overall atmosphere and meal was very good, and the dessert was amazing: the apple crostada was "out of this world!" and worth giving Maggiano's another try."

  • "i always make a reservation at Maggiano's when my group is in town for a conference; It is usually an easy and enjoyable experience. This time was no different except service was a bit slower. (server was having some issue in the kitchen). We got the family style light choice which is great for a group of ladies. Got the chopped salad, and 2 apps, then chose two entrees. All food was very enjoyable with a finale of the famous lemon cookies. Plenty of food for all. We got the house Malbec for wine which was a decent price and paired well with the food."

  • "My family and I went here after going to to Flower Show on Friday, 3/7. I knew it would be packed and hard to get a table so I was super glad they took reservations. When we sat down the line waiting for a table was out the door. We were waiting for one other person in our party to come but it still took the waitress a really long time to check and see if we were ready to order. But this didn't bother me so much because they were packed and just doing their best to accommodate everyone. Loved the location, and the restaurant itself was nice and cozy! The food was excellent! Everyone at my table had wiped their plate clean, with the exception of my mom who took her leftovers home which were still great the next day!"

  • "Three of us reserved a table at Maggiano's prior to seeing a show. Our reservation was for 5:00 PM. At 5:05 we were seated and chatting to a very knowledgeable server. Our drinks were served quick. The server answered questions easily. The salad, appetizer, entree, and dessert were all delicious. It was an excellent experience."

  • "Maggianos is one of our favorite places to go following events at the Philadelphia Convention Center. Once again this was our go to restaurant following a day at the Flower Show. I made reservations (really recommended if you want to get a seat) and not even 10 minutes from arriving we were seated. The appetizers and food was awesome as always and was quick to come to our table. Our waiter Alex checked on us to make sure everything was good. Even the kids told him it was great. This is definitely a great place to go even when they are busy. Thank you for making Saturday our best experience ever."

  • "Maggiano's is a great Italian restaurant. I went for dinner with my best friend and we had a blast, our waiter Eric was perfect even though the place was packed and I'm sure we weren't his only table he made us feel like we were. The food was amazing and came out really fast we had just finished our appetizer when our meal arrived. I would say if your going on a Saturday night like we did book a table because every time I have been here the place has been packed. Overall I had a great time."
