Outstanding service. Food was very tasty and fresh. Well made cocktails. Ordered the veal piccante (light) and crab cakes. Excellent evening.

I was not that thrilled with the visit. Not many vegetarian choice. I am not a pasta person either. One vegetarian dish ordered was not the way I thought. I had the same dish at Olive garden and better than here. Ordered a fish dish but that wasn't that great either. Kind of salty and the sauce was not appealing, and price was high. No sides(no fresh vegetables) came with it. This is a place for non vegetarians and pasta lovers.

Maggiano's is always a treat but this time was extra great. We had impeccable service from our server, Daniel. He was fantastic. I'll go back and request him every time.

We enjoyed the chicken francese and the beef rigatoni, salads were fresh and large and the cab was very nice. Lee was our server and he was phenomenal, we will ask for him again. We relaxed with no pressure to hurry and timing was good on the courses. I’ll go back soon.

Generally it was clear the servers and staff generally were not skilled at restaurant service. They didn’t know when to They forgot one of our entrees. By the time it came out many of us had finished eating. They also forgot the take home version of one of our orders. They did comp a couple desserts but that seemed insignificant compared to the poor service.

I've been to other Magianno's that are better. The decor in this restaurant is tired, particularly the carpet in the main dining room. The floor in the dining room did not look particularly clean. Our waiter was friendly, but busy, and was not particularly attentive after our food was served. Our food was okay, but the wrong dish was brought to me, and the marinara sauce seemed off and didn't taste as great as I've experienced at other Magianno's. The waiter gave us a dessert menu at the end of our meal, left, and came back with the bill. He never even asked if we wanted to dessert. I think it just slipped his mind. All in all, I don't think I'd go back to this location. The quality of the meal does not match the price point.

This was Black Friday and we ended up being early for our reservation. No problem -we were seated immediately and our waitress was right on the spot. We gave her our order and were served shortly. I ordered an item that also came with a take out order which we could not deal with since we were from out of town and staying in a motel. The waitress was very concerned but I assured her that I had read the menu and understood that the item came with a carry out and we could not handle it and to not worry about it. I had no problem with it, I just wanted the posta dish that I was ordering for dinner. This is one of our favorite eating places so is on our list for dinning.

We ate Thanksgiving Dinner here and it was fabulous. The selection of family style dishes was great, there was more than enough for everyone to be stuffed and then take leftovers, and $40 a head was a very fair price for the quality of cuisine and service we got. Thanks for making our family get together special and easy.

Enjoyed a delicious family-style Thanksgiving meal. The meat was cooked to perfection, the sides were scrumptious, and my kids even ate well because we were able to also enjoy some yummy pasta.
So, so good!

We love the Marco's Special. We can eat on it for 3-4 days! Service was fantastic! Even though the food is scratch made we didn't have to wait long at all and everything was good and hot. We try to visit at least once a month. We also just learned that they have a brunch on the weekends! Can't wait to try it some time too.

My husband and I needed a date night out and so we scheduled 6pm reservations for dinner and scheduled a movie about 20 min away at 8pm. We arrived about 5 min late (called ahead to tell them), and then when we arrived they said they were getting our booth ready. No problem, we took the beeper and went to the bar. There were several open seats at the the bar, not busy, and there were 2 bartenders. One guy was making a few drinks and the girl behind the bar- she looked at us, knew we were there.. but waited 5 min before ever approaching us for our drink order. She seemed angry to be working and as though we inconvenienced her by ordering a drink. She barely spoke to us, and ended up not giving me prosecco like I had ordered (it was more like a moscato. I also know this because when we got to our table I ordered another prosecco and you could see the clear difference in color and taste between the 2). We got our table within 10 min, no problem there, but didn’t see our waiter for 15 min to even say hi! We had the slowest service over dinner I have ever had at maggianos. We were constantly looking for our waiter to get the next part of our order in or to order a drink. We needed to be out of there quicker to get to a movie, and didn’t end up leaving until 750pm! I requested the check twice while still waiting for the food to-go to arrive back at our table. Additionally, the chicken Alfredo my husband ordered lacked sauce and the noodles were hard. We our avid lovers of maggianos, and this is the first time I can honestly say it was a horrible experience! Needless to say, it was such a let down to a rare date night out for us!

The food was delicious. Restaurant was not too loud. Was disappointed that the server got my take home dinner confused with the other diner. Last time I checked and was able to correct before I left, this time I can home with the wrong entrée. Very disappointed.

Messed up my order and I didn't receive an apology or anything. My wife and kid ate while I waited on my order. We got sick from the food about 6 hrs later so we had a very restless night. Happy anniversary to us SMH. Not to mention a lady in the booth behind us coughing like she was very ill and shouldn't of even been there but that was the only thing that wasn't the staff's fault.
