We had never eaten Sunday brunch at Maggiano's, and it was fabulous. My three table partners had lunch, but I had the Vegetable Frittata, and I would highly recommend it. Service was great, too.

Service very bad. Our waiter was so rude. Bread took 2 hours to get. Drink refill waiting for long time. Waiter demanded his tips. We were so frustrated with service. Waiter follow us and demanded his tips.

The food and service was wonderful but the assistance and care provided Karen (Head Hostess) to my 90 year old mother and 91 year old aunt was exceptional. The time and consideration she took to assist them from table to car was a standard for others to strive for.

Thank you Karen!

The female hostess with the glasses and the Bob is fantastic! She recognized our anniversary which we greatly appreciate. Very friendly great way to Greek customers. Our waitress was fine. we had asked for our salads and our entrees to be spaced out. Got our entrees when we were eating our salad. I hate that. It wasn't at a time of the day that you were too busy it was around 1:30 in the afternoon.

A little noisy. Food & service excellent. A manager type walking the tables insisted talking loudly on his communications piece- loudly enough to hear him coming & going, all the while guests were trying to enjoy the meal & conversation. Rude to say the least.

We were celebrating our friends birthday. Ken the waiter was nice but didn’t really listen very well. He brought coffee but didn’t ask if we wanted cream. Didn’t offer drink refills to everyone just to one of our group. Didn’t offer bread refills. Forgot my husbands salad. Said he didn’t hear him order it. He was nice just not really concentrating on us. We still had a great time and he did bring birthday cookies even though we ordered 2 cherry crostatas which were yummy.

I would definitely recommend going back again. I would also recommend it to a tourist. Very quick with getting our food. The waiter was very friendly. Appetizers were great, the entree not so much! But definitely 9/10 for us. A lot of food for the price 👍

Overall it was great. We went for the first time for our anniversary. It was loud and crowded (as expected for the time of day). My husband and I ordered cokes and he only got his after reminding him we are needed drinks still after our entrees arrived.

Wnet to Maggiano's on a Wednesday night at 7:30. Restaurant was not crowded. We waited over 10 min for our waitress to come to our table. She passed us by several times saying "I'll be right with you".
She finally came by to take our drink order and we were ready to order our food assuming it would take another 10 min to get our drinks (which it did) and then another 10 min to get our salads.. Another person eventually brought our meals.. Food was good but waitress NEVER stopped by during our meal to ask about our meal or to refill our drinks (I had ice tea). We had to ask her as she walked by for our check as we waited 5 min after we finished our dinner and had not seen her stop by. She had one other table of 6 people and she spent most of the time taking care of them. We were only a party of two.
She should have had another take our table if she was that busy. Several other people that came after we did were gone by the time we got our check. Was very disappointed in the service we received..

Nice evening dining out. Chose because of an email special, but wording confusing, server said it was only for carry out. Wording said ‘available in carry out’ making me think dine in OR could use for carry out. Meal cost more than budgeted for but it was delicious. When we saw server she was awesome, just very scarce. Busy with several large parties around us, so we were kind of left unattended. There very much longer than we wanted to be.

What a lovely place to dine at. Once inside, you would have thought the building to have existed for a century. Our server, Asia, was amazing and anticipated all of our needs. You will not walk away hungry from this place and all of our food was delicious. With several options, you get a meal to take home for the next day. So basically two full dinners for about $17. What?!?! It was my birthday and we were brought these delicious lemon cookies to share. Yummy

We had great service and food! The only downside was that the table felt very small and cramped for 6 ppl and the entrees can be very salty (typical for dining out, though). We also have a great experience and service at Maggiano’s and will definitely be back!

We love Maggiano's. Great food. The only complaint we had is we had an appetizer and some bread we asked to be boxed up with our take home meal and it was omitted. We left more than the 22 percent tip based on the service we had up to that point. All and all this is still one of our favorite places. We drove over an hour and a half to come there.

My wife and I were in Cincinnati and made reservations. Everything was great from the time we walked in the door and was personally greeted by the hostess. Our waitress Kaylie was exceptional. I have a food allergy and she was so thoughtful she brought one of the chefs to discuss an alternative. That’s going beyond the call. The food was excellent both for dinner and our meal for the next evening.

We will be back!

Our waiter Michael was fantastic. It was our first time there, me and my girlfriend, so he was extremely well versed in the menu and such. Overall, the food was incredible. While a little heavy, everything was cooked perfectly and tasted very good. The manager, upon hearing it was my girlfriend and my anniversary, brought us free bruschetta and a $10 off coupon for our bill. We did the dinner for two deal which was incredibly worth it. It was basically a three course meal with two free meals for only $44.

I ordered the Chicken and Spinach Manicotti and my girlfriend ordered the Carbonara. Both were incredibly rich and creamy and made me feel I was in Italy itself. The bread and calamari were both very tasty as well. Our waiter Michael even brought us the lemon aioli to dip the calamari in for free which was nice.

And finally, for dessert, we had the most amazing dish I’ve ever tried. I highly, highly recommend the trifle, a rich and sweet combination of cinnamon bread, custard, berries, and a lemon cookie all combined into an amazing array of flavors. And, if you do order the trifle, a nice cup of Italian coffee accompanied it very well.

Overall, Maggiano’s Little Italy made our anniversary very special and we felt extremely welcome. We left happy and full.

We go to Maggiano’s every year to celebrate our wedding anniversary because we had our rehearsal dinner there so it’s nostalgic. Made a reservation for 8 pm and we weren’t seated until 8:30 after having to double check with the hostess as to what was taking so long. We were finally sat and our waitress asked about allergies. My husband is allergic to shellfish and she made a note of his allergy. Then when our appetizer was brought out she neglected to tell him which piece of bruschetta contained shellfish, which nothing bad happened it’s more the fact that she claimed to be cognizant but failed to point out the obvious. Also our server brought out the wrong entree for my husband and was just absent minded throughout the entire evening. The evening was soured because of the long wait and poor service.

We waited 25 minutes past our reservation time for a table. Our table was located next to a column and the person on that side of the table was very cramped. Tables are way too close together and the noise level was off the charts. The food was excellent.
