    I Love this Place... This was one of the first place I took my girlfriend to when we first started dating 6 years ago and when we was going threw some hard times this is the place I thought of because of the great food and the romantic atmosphere it always made everything feel right. I tried almost everything on the menu and I must say it's all delicious!!! The only thing I can say wrong is that there isn't much parking and when you find one it could be a few blocks away but other then that this will aways be my number one spot..

    My 82 year old father in-law's words was: they have done a very nice job making this place look and feel like a one of a kind. He was very surprised to find out that it was a part of a chain. Food was great and plenty to take home for left overs...

    We came to Philadelphia to see off our young friend at college. We wanted to take her and her family to dinner. We had a GREAT server in Randy and the food was excellent. I had been to Maggianno's in Boston but had not had the family style meal. WOW!!! That is all we could say. The food kept coming and coming and coming. Definitely a great place to take a group of over 6 for a dinner that you know they will eat.

    Parking in downtown Philly wasn't difficult when the Marriott across the street offers valet service for Maggiano's. We ordered from the family style menu and were not the least bit disappointed by any of the choices selected: stuffed mushrooms, crab cakes & caprese for the appetizer course; eggplant parm, shrimp scampi, chicken saltimbocca & veal piccata for main course, and the manager gave us a third option to add to the dessert course: profiteroles, chocolate zuccata bites & creme brulee. looking fwd to leftovers for lunch today. Buon Appetite!

    Just a brief review. Arrived on a Saturday at 5:00 pm. Seating for four was immediate. Not too crowed at this time. Crowd picked up by 6:00 pm when we were leaving. Our waiter was great, very attentive, but he only had two tables. Drinks were good, well made. Balsamic salmon was cooked perfectly for my taste, not over cooked, very pink in the center. Fried mozzerella squares (app) were amazing (their version of mozzerella sticks). My guest said the steak, while cooked perfectly, was good but not great. Everyone at the table thought the veal was very good. I don't eat veal, didn't care for it, but what do I know. Overall a very good experience.

    Maggiano's has great Italian dinners - the quality of the food is excellent as well as very large portion size.....go hungry and be prepared to enjoy every morsel. This downtown location is conveniently located near the business district, theatre district and tourist area....we will definitely be going back when in Philly. Also had a good wine selection at reasonable prices for the city location.

    Dined on 8/10/2014
    We visit Philly each year and always look forward to Maggiano's. This year was disappointing. The bus boy was rude, our waiter was terrible. We had to inquire about a deal they were offering, as it was not advertised anywhere or mentioned to us by our server. We had a 9:30pm reservation, ordered appetizers and drinks and were actually enjoying ourselves. We ordered our entrees, our server said, "the kitchen closes at 10." I asked what time it was and he said it was 10. He made no attempt to tell us this at any point, even after we told him we were going to order more later. He took our order, then took forever to serve it, and it was ice cold when he did. He redeemed himself a little bit when he did come back with a birthday surprise.

    Even though a link in a national chain, this restaurant serves very good Italian. Expansive list of appetizers, interesting salads and tempting specials. The entrees are tasty whether it be chicken, seafood or veal. Freshly made pasta fills out every meal. Large portions that are filling. Dessert selection is very good. Good wine and beer lists. Veteran wait staff -- knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Lively bar that fills up quickly. Worth a visit

    Really nice experience. We were seated promptly and out server Kirsten was polite and attentive. We had Chicken Francaise (great taste not served as hot as I would have liked) chicken parm and spaghetti. All tasted great. The roasted potatoes were really good. Dessert was also good... We had cheesecake and Vera's lemon cookies. The cookies were nice and light and great after the meal with a coffee. Water glasses were always refilled. Prices are fair and location is good. A great place for a nice Italian meal in Philly!

    Reservations a must to avoid disappointment. I use Open Table. Quick and confirmed on line. We were 8 with 4 children. Selection was good including our one grandson who has Celiac (gluten allergy). Two negatives: seated next to the door for the sidewalk cafe. Gratefully it was moderate outside as we were hit with constant breezes and waitstaff conferences.

    Went here Sat night for our anniversary. We booked it Sat morning arrived 1/2 hr early and was seated right away. Did not have to wait for service and the food started coming out perfectly timed but did not feel rushed. The staff was very attentive and sure work hard. The food was great. I read that it was compared to the Olive Garden. The only thing they have in common is the price of their food. Definately will be back

    If you want good Italian food for a great price go to Maggiano's. The shrimp/crabmeat canaloni was out of this world. The canaloni was so thin the taste from the shrimp/crabmeat stuffing really took over the plate. Scallops were also tasty and not over cooked and rubbery. Service was also outstanding. Like I said, if you want Italian, this is the place.
