    This was our second time here, we went on a Friday night. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. We ordered the dinner for two, which included two pastas to take home. The food was great, but the baked ziti was a little dry and overdone; the noodles tasted a little chewy as if they had been sitting under a warmer for a while. It also could have used a little extra sauce. Also, the pace of the dinner was a little long, the entrees took a while for them to come out. Overall was a good experience, plenty of food and it was nice to get two entrees to take them home. Will return again.

    maggiano's knows how to please the customer. the food was fabulous and our server was fun AND efficient. my only "complaint" is that all the maggiano's i've been to - phila, cincinnati, nashville, charlotte, and now richmond have way too many tables too close together. i need a little more space than is provided and when i put that on my reservation they always accommodate me so i was happy but it's just soooooooooo jammed that i hyperventilate just entering the restaurant. but bc of the great food and service i take a deep breath and eat.

    Never had a bad meal til now. I had seen ads for light menu & after talking with waitress opted to try my fav chicken saltemboca as the light version. Big mistake. Nothing like the original. I was very disappointed it had a very strong aftertaste of fennel. Doubt fennel was to be in it,so it may have seasoned incorrectly. Best part was my husband was very happy with ravioli & fried mozzarella. Also disappointed after listing the reason for or reservation as husband's birthday & not acknowledged. We also had to return after leaving as the waitress forgot my husband's pasta to go. Hostess retrieved bag from kitchen with minimal apology. Definitely not the service we expect or quality. However, I am sure we will return.

    Always stop here on trip home from Myrtle Beach to Pa., and tonight the food was even better than nomal, which has always been quite good. Got the lasagna with meat sauce and the eggplant parm, both of which were wonderful. The meat sauce was exceptional tonight. And its always a treat to take more home for dinner tomorrow night.

    We made reservations for six plus a high chair. We were seated back in a corner at a table for five. They made us fit, but there were nicer tables available but we were not moved. Our appetizer was good, but some of the food did not meet our expectations. The one saving grace was that we had a very understanding waiter. He had a great demeanor and did not get flustered.

    We were a bit disappointed with Maggiano's this time. When we sat down in the booth, there was a sour smell. It makes me wonder if they used an old damp rag to wipe down the seats. Also, three of the four glasses at the table were dirty. Add to that the fact that our waitress was not very attentive and made a mistake on both my wife and my orders, and it does not make for a memorable evening. The food itself was fairly good, though.

    It had been a couple years since my last visit to Maggiano's - Richmond. Not what I remember. The lighting seemed to be too bright...like we were on stage. The waitress was pleasant and did an ok job but the drinks came out really slow as did the entrée. Caesar Salad had some not so fresh romaine lettuce. Food was ok but have had better for less $.

    Dined on 9/1/2014
    Have dined at Maggianos across the country for many years. Have consistently found good food and service and usually pretty good ambience and value. Some changes this time: We ordered the Marco special for 2 for $39.99. There is now a $2 up charge each if you order Lasagna or Ravioli which is almost half the classic pasta menu. Prices also increased on ala carte menu & our Lasagna portions were smaller besides. There were many tables all around us that were not cleared for almost the whole time we were there. Very unappetizing and poor ambience for sure. Our server was very good until it came time for our tirimisu dessert. He took the order and disappeared for 20 minutes! W/Only a quick "sorry it took so long". Food was still GREAT!

    We have usually had a positive experience but this was not one of them. Our waitress spilled a glass of wine on 2 of us. We did get an apology and a promise the manager would stop by. He did with a glass of selzer water and a napkin, but didn't say a word. Our food was slow in arriving and was lukewarm. As an apology for the glass of wine the waitress brought cookies which we really didn't care for. A more appropriate response would have been a glass of wine on the house.

    The sweet tea is not that sweet. Service was slower than usual. We had to flag down the waitress several times for Parmesan cheese, drink refills, etc. it is always very noisey in the restaurant. Not sure if there is a quiet place. We usually order the Rigatoni D which we love. This time we ordered the spaghetti with meat sauce (had a slight bite to it). My hubby ordered the 4 cheese ravioli with pesto and loved it. We took home Moms lasagna and Mushroom ravioli. My hubby liked the lasagna but I am not a fan of sausage so didn't like it for that reason. The mushroom ravioli was very good but a liitle less cheese would be great. We enjoyed the food overall but think I will stick with Rigatoni D next time or maybe try the Chicken Marsala.

    usually I would be glowing about the food, but this time the salad, chopped, was pretty poor. My wife and I were looking forward to a nice lunch salad and usually this salad is A+, but not this day. Hopefully, this was just a one time fluke and will be back for the full fare soon, but maybe not the chopped salad.

    Very first time dining at a Maggiano's Little Italy establishment. The food was absolutely delicious and portions were very generous...thank goodness for take home boxes! A little on the pricey side but considering I also took an extra full meal home with me it was well worth the expense. My party sat outside in the patio area and it was just so relaxing with the sounds coming from the outdoor fountain. Very impressive wine list and speciality drinks. Service was spot on and we didn't feel rushed to finish our meals.

    I haven't ever eaten at a Maggianos until recently and my sadness is that I don't have one closer to home. Best tasting Italian food that I have ever had at a restaurant. It almost tasted like my Italian grandmother was cooking it! The prices are also amazing and comparable to most other chain restaurants of this level. Our server was extremely attentive and quite knowledgeable about the menu. The wine list is seemingly something stitched together to meet any ones price needs or palette. I will definitely be back and might bring a few friends to share in the experience too! I would like to say that if for any reason you have mobility issues, let the restaurant know in advance as they seat on two levels with only stair access to second floor

    We are early diners, usually arriving between 6:00 and 6:30. Despite the possibility of being a part of a large happy hour crowd, we prefer to sit at the bar when dining at Maggiano's. There are no kids, the service is better and the able bartenders are friendly and entertaining. Great bang for the buck and we take home a dinner for another day.

    My special friend turned 50 on this day and he could not stop talking about how perfect my choice of restaurant was for his special day. He enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and my company. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and even brought out fresh lemon cookies with a candle to end our dining experience. I would like to take my friend back to this restaurant for dinner after or before a movie or maybe after church for brunch. I appreciated the our waitress informed us of happy hour as well as the drink specials. This would be one of our most memorable dates and he said that it was the best birthday he had ever had.

    1st time to Maggiano's. Mother's 89th Birthday celebration. A wonderful experience. Everyone greeted her with birthday wishes. Food was fantastic as well as the service. Daniel, our waiter, couldn't have been better. His attention and his recommendations lead us to a great meal with special considerations for an 89 yr old. We now want to go back again so maybe with a family party for her 90th or maybe just us for an enjoyable dinner for 2. We used OpenTable for our reservation without a hitch. Great assistance in our planning for we were from out of town. Thanks to all for a great night before taking her to The Barksdale Theater in Hanover.
