This was my second visit and it exceeded the first. The food was awesome and the service was second to none. This is my families new “go-to” for Italian dining. Maggiano’s, job well done.

Delicious family meal with four generations. Speedy delivery of Mac n cheese and cups with straws for the little ones - thank you!
My mother in law loved her spaghetti with meatballs and her vanilla ice cream for dessert- thank you!

Even though I wanted one of my former co workers to serve me, but I still got to enjoy my dinner. Marquis proved to be just as good, as the others, from the beginning to the end. He even did a good job selling me that special dessert. Coming back here the first time in about two years was worth it.

We had a very nice dinner on Mothers Day evening. There was a little mix up with one order. The manager was quick to apologize and comp that entree. Everyone's food was excellent down to The bread and salad. I will go back great atmosphere for special occasions.

Always great food but this particular Maggiano's has terrible service. Tonight's service was slower than usual and we waited 20 minutes just to get our check. This is our 3rd time at this location and we will not be back. It's a shame because my entire family likes Maggiano's.

I visited for mother's day. Nice restaurant, but there were 2 male employees that brushed by me in their haste that I almost fell. They should be more condiment of people using canes or walkers. The food was good. Our server was prompt and friendly.

Sanitation rating was a 94 the day we went. Booth was very dusty and leather seats were ripped badly. Ladies bathroom was in bad shape at the beginning and end of our meal. Very busy on Mother's Day and having a reservation was awesome. We were seated at our reservation time, service was very good, food was delicious, waiter was knowledgeable and friendly, and other wait staff was just as prompt and helpful. Portions were appropriate but slightly overpriced. Menu and specials were pleasing. Would go again and will recommend to others.

My wife and I had a wonderful Mother's Day experience. The entire process was seamless and from commencement of our dining excursion until the end we were treated very well. The food was delicious and it was very apparent that we were more than consumers to them, our dining expectation mattered to them.

Met a friend there for Mother’s Day had a reservation but it took an additional 40 minutes to be seated. While waiting I ordered a glass of house Cab at the bar. It was 17.00. The place went downhill from there. Service was very slow. Slow to order. Slow to bring the food and the waiter took forever to bring and return the check. An absolutely awful experience. I’ve been there plenty of times and this sealed the deal. I will never go back. Just awful how do you ruin a capreae salad? The bread was dough. Just bad.

I chose this restaurant for Mother’s Day and was extremely disappointed in the food quality and value. The noodles were uncooked and the Alfredo sauce was runny. My salmon was flavorless and broccoli quality was off. The manager David was kind and accommodating. The server, Daphne, was awesome!!!

I made a reservation for Mother's Day several weeks ahead of the day. The waiting area was crowded when we arrived but we were seated immediately and in a corner booth, tucked away from the busy table area. Service was outstanding, drinks arrived quickly and were refilled as needed without asking.Three of us had the buy one, take one pastas and husband had a huge steak. We all loved our food and were excited to take some home as well. The bread is fantastic and our basket was refilled as soon as we cleaned the first one out. We weren't rushed at all and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Looking forward to returning to Maggiano's!

The restaurant was so loud it was hard to hear the people at our table. It was grad weekend so it was very busy. The food was ok. I’ve ate here a lot and have had better experiences at other locations. The steaks we ordered were over cooked (leather like) and the Maggianos salad seemed to be very soggy. But the other dishes were good

Appetizers, salads, main courses and desserts; all was fantastic. The linguini de mare was amazing but such a large serving. Shared the meal with my wife and still could not finish the plate. But saves room fir the dessert sampler!! The butter is the best.

This was our third visit to Maggiano’s Restaurant in Durham, NC.
We moved to NC from CT and missed the great Italian Restaurants. We were told to try Maggiano’s...it was just what we were missing. The food was delicious, the ambiance True Italian and the service par excellence!!

Love Maggiano's! Not only for special occasions but for an anytime we need a little Italian variety. All of their choices are delicious, and the "lighter" version is always a great choice! The manager, Elisha, was friendly, courteous, and very social. The place was packed on a recent Saturday late afternoon, yet she managed to sweep by each table as make those patrons feel welcomed! Great staff.

The chicken marsala tasted more like liver and onions. The sauce had onions and a beef base. The noodles were not Angel hair. The salmon Oscar had a very fishy taste as if the fish wasn't fresh. Overall it was too salty. I have had nothing but great things to say about the Tysons Corner location. This Durham location needs some refining.

Pros- We had excellent seating in booth. Much quieter than last time in central area. Our cocktails and wine were good. Had a yummy bruschetta appetizer. The lighter chicken francese entree was excellent. Polite, attentive, and personable server. Liked the today and tomorrow pasta option- made for a better value.

Cons- Our server forgot to bring stuffed mushrooms, but she did comp them. Potato soup was so salty it was inedible. The gnocchi/sausage entree was gummy and tasteless. Spaghetti and meatball entree was dry, had to ask for extra sauce.

Our family was out celebrating some accomplishments and we had the best experience. Rebekah was our server, who was very personable and funny. It felt like she was a long lost friend. The manager, Bruce, was also very giving of his time and talked with us making us feel like family. Thank you for making our evening very special and memorable. It’s not often that teens enjoy hanging out with their parents but our teens even said they had a great time.

The waitress was rude to us, did not offer any other drinks but water, made several snobby comments when SHE got something wrong, and it wasn’t our fault. Prices & menu were a little different from online. Had a reservation for 12 at 4:30, didn’t sit down still 5ish, didn’t eat til 6:15ish.... unacceptable

I’ve never had such wonderful spaghetti, meat sauce and meatballs as Maggianos!!! It’s just delicious with the perfect blend of spices and meat!!!! I love the bread which I prefer with butter but I can’t stop eating it is the problem. I lost count of how many pieces I ate the other night!
