Maggiano's - Tampa
Food and service was veryFood and service was very good....The only complaint is the noise level was so high you couldn't hear the person across the table talking.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFathers' DayIt was Dad's first time at Maggiano's, and he LOVED the food. I didn't love what I chose for dinner, but it was okay; I have really enjoyed the food I have eaten there in the past. We had reservations and were seated within 5 minutes of arrival.
Our waitress was excellent: attentive, responsive, & very friendly.
The restaurant was too loud for my dad and I to hear each other well.
When it came time to pay my bill, my card was 1st charged a higher amount. When this got voided, I got a new charge for about a dollar; and the waitress brought back a receipt for zero dollars. She brought a manager over to help; he ended up printing a receipt for the correct amount I owed.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat special with great foodCannot pass up the classic pastas where you buy one to eat in the restaurant and get one to take home with you. The rigatoni with chicken sausage in pompodoro sauce was absolutely excellent.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat mealReally enjoyed our party of 7 meal here. Great place for kids and would recommend the family style menu. You'll leave with bags of take home!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBargain$39.95 for two salads, two dinners in the restaurant, two to take home plus a dessert -- this provided two of us meals for days. We sent the kids back on Saturday for the cooking class . . . . it was not such a bargain but still worth it and lots of fun.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMPaula's Birthday DinnerI liked the simple reservation process. Our early evening time slot insured quick service. We took advantage of the $39.99 classic pasta deal. GREAT food. Very good appetizer (for four; we took half of that home too). Dessert (apple something) with vanilla ice cream. I was glad I let you know about my wife's birthday. She still gets a kick out of candles on her "cake". (Nice touch, thank you.) Our waiter did a very good job of describing the dishes with patience and thoroughness.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNice lunch before the moviesWe like to make a family outing of eating at Maggianos then going to a movie. The food is excellent, and we like that they contribute so much to the Make A Wish foundation.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable!We have been several times and enjoyed the food including my favorite dish, Rigatoni D!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMas expected . . . as usual.Our experience was as expected, as it usually is . . . fine overall.
Dinner for a family of 3 (two adults and one child), out the door for $110 - 2 adult entree's & one child's entree, 3 drinks from the bar, 2 soda's, an appetizer, and a side salad - Our bill was $90; we tipped $20 (aprox 22.5%) - Yes the $110 was a little higher than anticipated, but the drinks were good, the food was decent, and the service was good - Fine for a special occasion or a once in a while splurge - Maggiano's is far better than Olive Garden (which is the McDonald's equivalent of Italian food, YUCK), however it's not as authentic as your local mom & pop Italian restaurant. - Fine overall - 3.5 out of 5 stars.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredibleThis restaurant followed my directions for reservation throughout and made my friends Special Day on to remember.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday specialEven though my group that I was expecting did not show up the waitress yoshee was on top
of her game. she served well, she always came around to check to make sure
we were doing alright. At the end of the evening yoshee and another waiter came and served
my partner a beautiful birthday dessert that we posted on facebook for all to see
so that they would know where we were. Overall we had a good time an I would come
again. Thank you for your time, patience, an service.
The Taylor family6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food, Service Is Just OkThe food here is always good, the service is just hit or miss. At least this time our food came out in a timely manner, but the waitress disappeared for long periods of time and it wasn't very busy.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeI felt that the food was awesome and it was a great value for the price paid. I definitely recommend this restaurant for groups.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMparty reviewOur party of 10 was seated exactly on time. The wait staff were very attentive and helpful. All entries were very good and plentiful with extra pasta dishes to take home. The noise level could have been a little less. We had to shout to each other to be heard across the table. In all the ambiance was perfect and we will return soon.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat experienceeveryone was extremely friendly. server very attentive and accommodating to our few "fussy eater" requests. great experience for a special occasion, yet casual enough for our teenagers to feel comfortable. would definitely return. prices VERY reasonable, very generous portion sizes5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to dine with friendsWe went for Girls Night Out and had a blast. We ordered the family style option. The food was fabulous and never ending. We didn't even have room for the decadent desserts. Will definitely return again soon.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHit or MissThe place is big with tall ceilings so it was very loud. One entree was perfect, the other was sent back. The manager was very quick to get a new one made and that was delicious. The mussels were succulent and delicious. And the best tiramisu I have tasted anywhere.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for group diningWe celebrated a birthday with a group of 10 of us and it was perfect. There's an option for family style dining that isn't offered in many places. Its a great added bonus to get a pasta entree to go when purchased one at the restaurant. The food is consistent, the service is great. Everything is a little salty for me but I don't salt my food much. The portions are generous, especially for the cost.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceWe had great service and very good food - portions were good and the chicken parmesan was incredible - tender and juicy5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA nice changeWe had a lovely evening. We had a picky 9 year old with us and he loved it, too! We were surprised with the take home from the chef after ordering a classic pasta. What a treat! Thanks for a great evening!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall great experienceWe waited almost 45 min for our reservation, which was the only bad thing about our experience. They seated us in a private banquet room, which was worth the added wait. Our server was nice and attentive. The food was incredible as always. Great establishment I would recommend to any fan of Italian cuisine.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great ServiceWe celebrated my birthday at Maggiano's. Our waiter, Stephen was knowledgeable and attentive. He made suggestions welcome suggestions on ordering. He was attentive to our likes and dislikes. The food was, as always, outstanding. The beef tenderloin medallions were tender, cooked to perfection with a wonderful cream balsamic sauce. After dinner we enjoyed the main attraction, apple crostada and tiramisu. These are house made desserts that are to die for. I accompanied mine with de-cafe cappuccino, full flavored, not bitter and a delightful crème on top. Maggiano’s is wonderful for family dinners and special occasions. Thank you for a wonderful birthday dinner.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMmckayReservations are easy. Waiting time is very reasonable. Wait staff are very friendly. courteous and openly willing to help diners with any request. Food is presented very eloquently and is prepared masterfully.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable good ItalianMaggiano's is consistently good. The portions are very large, great if you live in the area and can take home the extra servings. The restaurant is busy and noisy, as an Italian Restaurant should be! There may be areas set aside for more romantic settings, but we are always there with our kids. They love it, therefore, we love it. Service is always courteous and quick.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMNice time.The restaurant was nice. A little hard to get in the waiting room/bar area. The noise level was a little loud. The food was Very Good. (try the chicken sausage!) Overall we had a very nice time and would tell our friends.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA great celebration!Thank you so much for making my graduate school graduation lunch celebration spectacular!

BUt it was so hot and uncomfortable that we could not finish our meal. We had them pack it for to go.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayWe reserved a table for Mother's Day. Since it was 11:15, it was pretty quiet. We still had to wait for about 10 minutes to be seated ... but no big deal. We enjoyed a couple of the classic pasta dishes - in which we got to take a dish home for free. That was real nice! My husband got a veal porterhouse. He said it was good as well. The server was also very nice and on top of things.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat memoriesI loved the entire experience I had a party of 11 so the only thing I found very stressful was waiting for my table because the lobby area was not very comfortable for my 84 year old grandmother to stand, and my seven year old adventurous son to be next to a bar scene but overall I did really like the waiter. He was very fast, excellent communication skills, happy and very presentable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for mothers day and hadWent for mothers day and had a wonderful time! We had a reservation and even though the place was packed we were seated right away! Olive Garden has nothing on this place!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day TreatI took my wife of 30 years and our daughter and her boy friend to Maggianos for Mothers Day dinner. I had reservations but kinda firgured with Mothers Day and the crowds, the reservation would most likely not result in a timely seating. To my surprise, I was wrong, we were seated within 2 minutes of arrival. Great service, and great food. Couldn't be happier.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGOOD, GOOD, GOODit was worth the trip and outdid our expectations! extra bonus meal to take home meant enjoying the special treat again. reservations were honored! thank you Jennifer, Rick and the lovely lady who brought warmed milk for the coffee and all who made a memorable night!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service was veryThe food and service was very good. The drinks are extremely expensive. A Merlot house wine and a draft beer $15.00. That is abusive. No more adult drinks if we go back5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHighlight of the eveningWe love to celebrate special ocassions at maggianos. From the service to the food, we have never been disappointed.

service and food was great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's is always specialFor special occasions we love Maggiano's. The food is incredible and the servings huge. And people-watching is always fascinating. Apparently everyone else feels the same. It is always crowded so reservations are a must for us. We look for this restaurant in every major city we visit. And it never disappoints.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyFamily style dining pricey and yet worth it. For $10 difference in price from "classic" to "chef's choice" per person, add one more entree to the option of chef's choice (or at least appetizer).5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Tampa VisitWe have eaten at the Magiannos in Atlanta many times before moving to Tampa. We found everything to be just fantastic, the food and the service. It was an extrememly busy night because of prom and graduations, but we were not hurried and received excellent service. I had made a reservation and only waited a few minutes!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerWe had 9 in our party after Graduation; our table was ready when we arrived and was in a private room (not requested) with a few other larger parties. It felt intimate yet was spacious. The service was very good, food excellent and prompt. We would definitey go back and highly recommend it.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
