I met up with a couple of friends and we had a very nice meal. The food was good although I wouldn't classify it as a foodie haven. The portions were very ample and our waitperson, Godfrey, was a very pleasant young man with very pleasant manners. He set the tone to a very calm meal. The place is humongous, yet the food came out very quickly and it was pretty good. One of us had the chicken parmesan with a side of pasta with marinara. The sauce was a bit sweet for my taste, but the chicken parmesan was as good as grandma's- very tasty. My Carbonara was ok. It had nice ingredients, but they didn't quite come together to make this dish a standout as I would have expected; on a 1-10 it was maybe a 6½. The garlic spinach was very good with a nice balance of garlic and the fried calamari was generous but prosaic rendition not much to distinguish it from every other non-descript place that cooks calamari because that’s what people want; mundane at best. All in all, it is a good neighborhood restaurant and I would recommend it for nights that one doesn't want to cook, just not for that special occasion.

Maggiano's is always a great atmosphere and the staff are superb. I don't eat red meat or pork so my options are very limited here but still good.

They messed up on one of the orders in our group.
Then they brought a new order and told us they would box it up, but they served it to someone else. Ultimately, it turned out fine, but it was frustrating.

This is a large restaurant in Chevy Chase - more like a canteen - with lots of photos and images evoking life back home in Italy in the early twentieth century and with it the suggestion that diners are going to receive top quality Italian food. They will not. The helpings are enormous but the food is pretty tasteless. I had linguine con frutti di mare. The seafood, likely frozen, had lost all taste and it came swimming in a very spicy wishy-washy liquid (I cannot bring myself to call it a sauce/ragu). I followed with a pretty nondescript cheesecake, which was not very cheesy. We dined during happy hour so we took advantage of the house wine offerings, which were Italian and OK. Service was Ok but despite there being about 10 servers hanging about only one guy seemed to take and deliver the orders and somehow he managed to charge us full price for the happy hour white wine, then, took ages to correct it. Meanwhile, we needed to leave promptly to go to the AMC for a film and for 10 minutes he did not pay us any attention.

So, the decor and server promised much but overall Maggiano's does not deliver. No Italian chef would dare serve this fare.

Restaurant was not terribly busy and therefore we could not understand why the service was beyond slow. Waiter took too long of a time to bring our drinks and food. Nor did he seem to care that he was not more efficient. My tip reflected my disappointment. Most irritating is that the restaurant "upped" the tip I left on my credit card. I plan to dispute this "upping;" however, because the restaurant attempted to "up" the tip I wanted to leave, I will not go to this restaurant again.

I've been to this particular Maggianos several times with out of town groups. It was a particularly busy night and our servers had several large groups that impacted the usual attentative service. One of my group had a birthday and four were first timers . We were assured special attention ... didn't happen. Even after everyone ordering dessert and other tables getting birthday cake our birthday person sat at the table with no dessert while the rest of sat and waited. Very awkward.

After a year long hiatus, I saw the Happy Hour sign offering Live Jazz on Wednesday’s. Although I came on Monday to watch the Giants play, the Happy Hour scene was happening.

The bartender Mukesh deserves an award for his non stop serving to an abundance of customers simultaneously. His social skills are Bar none!

Don, the amazing Service Manager was present per usual his schedule who happily makes his rounds to check on the customers
.
He just as engaging & takes pride in hearing great things about his staff.

Maggiano’s is absolutely the Friendship Heights neighborhood gem for authentic Italian food, Social Scene & fantastic service.

You’re a few steps away from the FH Metro Station-Red Line.
