Maggiano's - Tampa
Dependable 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 AMReservation and seating wasReservation and seating was right on time.

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 AMManson ReviewThis place was absolutely awesome...

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 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 AMA place for Kings and Queens!Upon stepping into this well maintained establishment, you shift back in time when elegance is at best. The service is white glove, the cuisine is prepared by some of the finest chefs. Our experience was one that would bring us back...time and time again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you decide to go to Maggiano's,If you decide to go to Maggiano's, portions are large, so bring an appetite.

Maggiano's is a great spot for a family gathering.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection!We had reservations for 7PM but didn't arrive until almost 8PM because of multiple accidents on the bridge. We were greeted promptly and our table was ready for us even though we were so late. The food was exceptionally good, sauteed to perfection and the sauces were well prepared and tasty. The service was great also, even though the restaurant was rather busy, the timing of our order was precise. We drive over an hour to get to Maggiano's and everytime we have a great experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMthe staff is wonderful andthe staff is wonderful and friendly, food very good4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe met an old friend for lunch.We met an old friend for lunch. We had a wonderful meal and great service. I highly recommend this restaurant!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation bookedWe had a reservation booked for 7:30p.m. and waited almost an hour. It was our Anniversary (12 yrs) and we requested to sit upstairs. We understand they cannot fill all upstairs requests but we thought since it was our Anniversary they would make an exception. When our table was ready, they put us at the worst table. Pretty much in back of the hostess people when you come in. We asked if we could wait for the upstairs but they said it wouldve been over a 30 minute wait or longer. We did not eat all our food or even touch our coffees we were so ready to get out from all the excessive noise around us. Food is great and waiter was very good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd time I've been here, 2nd2nd time I've been here, 2nd time I've wondered why haven't I been here before?!?! AMAZING!

Many compliments from family on our choice of restaurant. Server, hostess were great.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent food andAlways excellent food and service. Coming with a group the Classic Family Meal is an excellent value for the choices given. A+4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Family-Style ItalianMaggiano's always provides consistently good Family-style Italian food. We really like the Chopped Salad, Chicken Parmigiana, Riggatoni-D. We added the Shrimp Scampi to the mix on this visit and it was tasty as well.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter making reservation itAfter making reservation it was easy and convenient we still had to wait a while for a table... Other than that everything overall it was good4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a reservation on FridayI had a reservation on Friday and was very pleased with our experience. Our waitress Jennifer was great in every way and I would not mind requesting Jennifer everytime we go she was wonderful and definitely made the experience that much more enjoyable.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday night special...Maggiano's is always a good time. But I had never taken my child there. Always drinks and apps with friends. I made a reservation because you never know how a Friday night will be. I made it on the earlier side and made sure to be there on time. I asked for a booth away from the crowds as not to disturb anyone. They were very accomidating and got us situated quickly. Sarah our waitress was very friendly and prompt with our food and drinks. Everything was great. My only comment is that the bowtie pasta with veggies needs more sauce. It was a little bland and dry. Overall, 2 thumbs up.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI love Maggianos for a groupI love Maggianos for a group get together. Our table was ready the moment we arrived. Many great menu choices- so many that it was hard to choose! Loved the dessert sampler to share!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!!We are a super last lunch after a show at the Straz. Everything was terrific especially the chopped salad and our waiter, Joe. Marco's Meal for Two at $40 is a bargain and should rightfully be called Marco's for 6!! We took home two bags if food and our dessert!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMaggiano's--the Formal Family StyleWe always go to Maggiano's for family special events because we are huge fans of the family style dining opportunity...we don't even look at the rest of the menu. I mean 3 'bring it on' apps and entrees plus dessert...there is no way to to go wrong and no way to cook the next day--because you have a full meal of leftover that are AW-SUM.
Yet, with all the food and the options they still keep a total formality and don't turn it into a buffet on plates.
We will be back and back and back...4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMReservations were for 7:15pm,Reservations were for 7:15pm, on a Saturday night. They were running a lite behind in their reservation commitments, but set us up with an appetizer on the house and an awesome server, named Shawn. Service was tremendous and we will definitely be going again!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMI was there for my birthdayI was there for my birthday and everything was wonderful. The staff did a fantastic job. Very attentive and helpful. Great experience. Thank you!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the reasons I go toOne of the reasons I go to Maggiano's is the food is always good! I was not disappointed - again!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant and staffwe dined at your restaurant to celebrate my wife's 48 birthday, as we did last year and again at my sister inlaws wedding reception. There was plenty of food and the waiter ans staff was very friendly and the service was excellent. WE had a reservation and was 1/2 hour late, however we were seated at arrival with no problem. Thank you, We will be back.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are from Lakeland, butWe are from Lakeland, but come back again and again. We prefer sitting on the mezzanine as it is a little quieter and less distracting than the main floor4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMLove my Maggiano'sThe food and service were superb! We've dined here many times and have never had a bad experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great service,Great food, great service, great value. We ordered off their Classics menu where they give you a bonus portion to take home - and it doesn't have to be the same dish you ordered. When you compare this feature to other Italian restaurants, Maggiano's is an amazing value for the money. The portions are so big anyway that you're likely to be fed twice per plate. I will definitely be going back. Just make sure you have a reservation.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is excellent - GreatThe food is excellent - Great value for money spent4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we arrived, we were greetedWhen we arrived, we were greeted with a smile and seated almost immediately. Our server provided excellent service. I believe his name was Joe. He did not smother us nor did he disappear. Great balance of general restaurant hospitality and personal service. We look forward to our next visit!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
