Our service from Sheena was terrific - checked in on us the right amount of times and timed our salads and entrees perfectly for our eating speed. The manicotti was delicious.

Got seated close to our reservation time. Server started off well but then got derailed. Our kids food came promptly. However our drinks took quite a long time and then we kept waiting for our appetizers, which never came. After a long while what came were our entrees because our server had a misstep with the appetizer ordering. Fortunately the food was tasty. We asked for to go boxes for our kids and the server mistakenly packed even my husband's pasta. He was also rushing to take my husband's food plate away without checking. We ordered dessert to go, which btw was excellent - however we came home to realise the server did not put a lid on the container for the berry sauce - so of course the sauce was everywhere.
This is a very known place with great food to offer - it was surprising that the service was below par for such a place.

Great marketing. Love your menu buy one take one home.
Would love it if you included a special on that every so often. For example buy one chicken piccata take one home ( for an upcharge)

Food was excellent.
Did not feel we had the good service we usually receive.
Our waitress did not act like we were a priority in any way.
She didn’t offer more bread, refills on our drinks, didn’t offer us the birthday cookies others were receiving.
She also brought our check before we even had received our dessert.
Not the service we normally receive at Maggiano’s.

The food and service at Maggianos was impeccable. I highly recommend the family style dinner menu since it offers a variety of options for the entire family to enjoy. Best Italian restaurant on the north side of Indianapolis.

Great place, consistently good food and service. I have a nut allergy and was quite impressed that a chef came out to speak to me and update me on how they process and what to stay away from.

I’ve had dinner at several Maggiano’s and have found them as close to what I grew up on, as a restaurant can come. We went there to celebrate my retirement and had a great meal and a wonderful time.
I have not been disappointed at any of the meals I’ve had there.

Really enjoy Maggiano's for large groups as the food is family style. The square booths make for a quiet, intimate setting with just your date or a small group. The servers are friendly and fun to talk with while also providing excellent professional service. The Marco's Meal is an excellent value with two pasta entrees, two salads and a large dessert in the restaurant, PLUS two take-home pasta dishes all for about $45. It is one of our favorite restaurants.

We made a reservation, but still had to wait 45 minutes for our table. The staff was not polite or respectful and did not let us know why there was a delay and when we would be seated. When we elevated to the manager, he quickly solved the problem and was very nice. Our server and food were good. Overall, it was crowded, loud, and disappointing as the food/ambience did not outweigh the poor service at check in.

The Marco's special is a good value. The entrees varied in quality and tastiness. The 4 cheese ravioli was exceptional, but the spaghetti with meat sauce paled in comparison to Olive Garden. The pappardelle with beef come out only slightly warm and was average. The steaks from grill were great!! The apps were good. Salads okay. Desserts good. A disappointing experience compared to the last time I went in Chicago many years ago. I used to rave about you, but now I'll think twice. Finally, it was 2 degrees outside and way too hot inside. Uncomfortable dining experience. Appreciated the $10 coupon for joining the email club.

Invited My out-of-town brother, his wife, and locally living son to dinner to join my wife and I. They were all very happy with their meals. My wife had her favorite chicken piccata (she compares it favorably to hers), with a side of sauteed spinach, my brother a chicken and shrimp dish, his wife, the chicken manicotti, and my nephew, the salmon oscar. I chose one of the classic pasta dishes (ravioli al forno, I think it was). The portions were quite ample, especially the salmon oscar and chicken and shrimp pasta dish, while my ravioli was simple and light, which is what I was hoping for, not being ravenous. I selected the taylor Street ziti to take home (my selection, and other classic pastas, provide a have one, take one home option). We all found our choices delicious, ample, service was great as usual. The whole meal, which I covered, came to a little over $30 each, with tip (would have been quite a bit more if my wife hadn't been the only one having wine) but could have been less as well, since most chose a higher price entre. Altogether delicious and well worth the price.

The hosts were so concerned on finding tables that they didn’t even take a chance to greet the new people coming in or at least acknowledge we were there. We had a reservation and checked in. We waited 30 min and still hadn’t been seated and it turns out they knocked us off the list even though we had a reservation. The food was good but the service was very poor.

New Years Eve night. Service was slow, 20 minutes for bar drinks. Food took 30 minutes. Food was good but they were out of several items at 830pm? Checks were not correct on delivery but were corrected. Overall 2 hours from seated to check payment.

Usually is much better than this, they didn’t appear to be ready for New Years Eve!

It was my husband and mine first visit and now we now a little more about the restaurant and what to order. My lasagna was great and I got to pick a dish to take home, the 4 cheese manicotti was very good as well. My husband did not care for his spaghetti which had no sauce.

We've gone here for New Years eve lunch for several years in a row now but were disappointed by this last visit. Restaurant wasn't crowded so I asked for a booth. Instead we were seated at a table that was uneven and two of us had our chairs in the very busy aisle. There were several empty booths and I asked if we could move to one of them but the hostess seemed put out so we stayed at our table. Our server rarely came by our table and wasn't very friendly. They served me someone else's meal and it was at least 10 minutes before anyone came back to the table to say they gave me the wrong meal. When they brought the correct one it was way overcooked and the pasta was chewy. Instead of comping my meal they gave us a free dessert. For the price, the service was not up to par and the food was just ok.
