Experience was not good. Date night, 2 people, sat us upstairs with two gigantic parties and two screaming kids. Unacceptable with plenty of available tables downstairs. Noise level was unbearable, couldn’t wait to leave. Total lack of recognition on their part as they were trying to shove people in wherever. Food was average, pre made and pasta was over nuked. Won’t be back. Unfortunate too, our last experience was so enjoyable, they obviously given in to the masses and don’t care about the customer experience. Two thumbs down.

I felt our server was very slow. It took 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive; 1 iced tea and 1 glass of wine. Way too long! Over all the service from Monet was very slow but we were glad we were not being rushed for a change.
Both of our meals were excellent although my Chicken Francese came out with a bowl of plain spaghetti where as it was clearly stated on the menu that Vesuvio potatoes came with the meal. About 10 minutes later the potatoes came out.

So, some good and some bad reviews from that visit.

Honestly this used to be one of our favorite restaurants but I’m not sure we will go back. I ordered the spinach and chicken manicotti, my husband the talipia and my son the chicken Parmesan. The manicotti has always been my favorite but it tasted very bitter. I noticed after I ate half my husband too only ate half of his. On the way home we talked about our meals and I asked him if his was good and he said not really. I asked him if his had a bitter taste and he said yes. I believe it was probably the spinach that was in both of our dinners. We both like spinach and eat it regularly but I would assume it was bad. My manicotti was lacking chicken but was stuffed with the spinach and my husband commented the spinach overpowered the taste of his fish.

This was our second visit and didn’t disappoint. While the restaurant was overwhelmingly crowded we were seated within 5 minutes of our reservation. The waitress appeared promptly after being seated to explain the menu and take drink orders. Drinks came relatively quickly. We had glasses of J Lohr Paso Robles Cab which was reasonably priced ( 2x the retail price of a bottle). We shared the chopped salad and Italian salads ( side size) both quite ample. For mains we shared Shrimp Fra Diablo, gnocchi and chicken parmigiana. All three mains were tasty and quite good. Caution: the portions are rather large. Despite there being four of us, we had to ask for take home containers. The service was friendly and efficient. We will return to taste other dishes next time we’re in Cincinnati.

Visited here May 19 2018. This place was amazing. Ive had it catered to my work before so i had to take my wife there. We were celebrating her birthday which us May 18th and our Anniversary which is May 19th. The food and service were top notch. My wife has a shellfish allergy and the chef came out personally to talk to her about it. We got the Marcos meal for 2 which was plenty of food we couldnt eat all of whst we were served because of the very well sized portions on top of each of us being able to take home an entree. Which we had plenty of leftovers for the weekend. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you.

The food was great. Marco's meal for two, with a pasta in restaurant and one to take home is a great deal. Meatball on the spaghetti is large and portion is enough for two in and of itself. Service was excellent. Authentic Italian feel to the entire restaurant.

This is a favorite place for us to dine out. The server was slow, aggressively tried upsell meals, did not follow up when food arrived, offered refills after meals were finished, forgot to provide 2nd pasta meal to go. Overall disappointing and would not recommend based on this visit.

Celebrated Mothers Day with my wife, her mother, and few of her family members. We were seated at comfortable round table with plenty of room. The server was very polite and attentive. Food arrived quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals with one exception. I'm a bit hard to please. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

Mother’s Day

We went for Mother’s Day and made the reservation months ago. However, we were not told that it was a reduced brunch menu so that was very disappointing as I had a specific dish in mind that they wouldn’t serve. They did accommodate our request to sit in the patio but put us in direct sunlight, even though there were plenty of tables in the shade and we had an infant with us. They did agree to move us but then crammed 5 adults and the infant at a table for 4. Our waitress might have been newer as she seemed puzzled at every question we asked. But she was prompt and pleasant so maybe she was just new. Overall, it was just an ok experience. We love brunch at Maggianos and will be back, just not on a holiday.

Delicious food in a fun atmosphere. We had reservations and were seated on time. Our server was attentive, professional and boy could she pre-bus!!! haha:) We all loved our food, and even ordered dessert, as that was one of the main reasons I choose here to eat. It was a delicious smores type dessert that was large enough for 3 to share, and we all loved it. We will return in the near future!

Birthday dinner for my best friend. Four having dinner. Dinner was excellent as expected. Never tasted our appetizer, the waitress forgot to put it in.!!!! She could not correctly remember any of the dinner specials correctly. Waters were empty more than filled. My ice tea sat empty for 12 minutes. I don't say this often, but the service was horrible.

It was our Anniversary , i had left instructions for a table not located in the middle of the room as there is no privacy due to surrounding tables with no booth option. My wishes where fulfilled , the waitress ask if this was a special occasion, we recieved a "Happy Anniversay " envelope with a $10 Giftcard. The food value and taste are outstanding. We had the menue for 2 which included a tasty appetizer , 2 Pasta dishes and a delicious dessert as well as 2 pasta dishes to go and 2 coffees for $64.00 Incredible!

We went because our daughter had a friend visiting from Chile. Our waitress, Pam, was very patient with having to wait for English translation to happen. She was also very attentive to our table and needs.
Because our daughter has an allergy to tree nuts, a manager came out to discuss and assure us that her dish would be prepared away from said allergens. Very impressed with that level of concern.
Nice place for special occasions.
