Dining at Maialino is always a pleasant, relaxing experience in an authentic Roman setting with professional, well trained service and a creative menu prepared with quality ingredients that is always delicious.

Great food, but service is getting worse. I have eaten here before but until this past weekend, never had a problem. If based on service alone, I would not return. I support the no-tipping policy however I can't help but think that it leads to much worse service.

The special pasta for that evening was flavorless and lukewarm. The Maialino pig was tough, dry, flavorless and also not even warm. Neither of us liked the wines recommended by our waiter after telling him what style of wine we liked. Over all a poor dining experience.

Maialino never disappoints. We were there last Saturday for a friends brunch get together. Among the afternoon’s delights were the eggs carbonara, a super thinly sliced porchetta sandwich and the cacio e pepe eggs. For sharing, do yourself a favor and order the ricotta pancakes, super yummy. Staff is lovely and the wines more so. A great afternoon that won’t soon be forgotten!

Wonderful selection of dishes to choose from. beautifully prepared and presented.
Attentive, knowledgeable service.
As with all Danny Meyer restaurants, the experience is reliably excellent.
While busy, the tables are well spaced and and the room does not feel overly crowded.
The new "no tipping" policy is much appreciated -

I was disappointed by the experience. Service was terribly slow, so we had to call the waiter over several times. I thought my appetizer was unevenly seasoned, but my main was great. I was hoping for a better experience.

The gild is off the lily at Maialino. Our favorite spaghetti carbonara was served luke warm and full of actual fat with no meat - not their usual Guanciale. As a fairly knowledgeable wine person who has been to Italy more than 20 times - I found the wine list more than challenging with very few basic Italians of any color or shape. And the no tipping policy seems to have failed. Wait staff "wandering" around and eager to help; but a different person had to be summoned each time - so no continuity. Needs a shake up.

El somelier muy prepotente, si no pedías sus vinos de 300 us tenias que simplemente ordenar rápido y lo que el decía, me decepcionó profundamente el servicio, hace 3 años que estuve fue lo máximo, hoy a pesar que su pork y el pulpo es lo máximo no lo recomiendo y no volveré .

Expensive everyday dining; an upscale Le Pain Quotidien. We had attentive service; ordered the Mixed Greens and the Polpo, both of which were very good. With our entrees, we ordered a side of the Funghi Trifolati. I know the server heard the order, as he confirmed we didn’t want that dish with our 1st courses. When it wasn’t served with our entrees (decent pasta dishes), we believed it would come out imminently. By the time our waiter came back to follow up, we were over halfway finished, and we told him that if he’d not ordered the mushrooms to forget about it. He said nothing, and the next time we saw him was when he brought them out after we’d finished, with our flatware on our plates. Not until we said “no” did he acknowledge we didn’t want it.

Everything tasted salty, there was a large bundle of hair in my fruit salad with hardly an apology, service was uninspired
