Good food, good service, really loud!

I use this restaurant a lot for business dinners for our out of town visitors. The food is good, servings are generous and the pricing is mid-range, which is important for us. I do consistently get the feedback of "it's really busy and loud". So minimal points for ambiance but if you want good... read more

Maggiano's is a nice place for a banquet, a group of family or friends, or for a more intimate date. It has a lot going for it but for me it missed getting a top rating. I am trying to figure out what was lacking. Certainly the service was friendly. The portions were large and the menu selections many and... More

This is one of the places that is great for a celebration. We celebrated famly birthdays and opted for the family platters which are plentiful and tasty. In order to plan, we looked online at their menu and were surprised that when we arrived they said the menu posting was out of date. We were disappointed as some of our... More

Sunday lunch was very good. We return in a heart beat. Hubby who is quite a gourmand said the Chicken Saltimbocca was one of the best he ever tasted. Our waiter Tucker was attentive his stations quickly got very busy, yet he checked in with us at appropriate intervals and made sure our needs were met.

Good food served family style. You can choose to have the food keep coming, this is great for a large crowd. Delicious salads, appetizers entree and desserts! Ok, so my only complaint...it's loud and noisy! Music blaring. So people have to yell to have a conversation.

Great food but terrible service which explains my poor rating. Maggiano's is one of my favorite Italian restaurants and I eat there fairly often in different cities. Santana Row was the first time I have had bad service. The waiter started off nice but then never checked up on us after serving the food, even though he passed our table... More

We have been here several times and this is my husband's favorite place for spaghetti and meatballs. I have tried different dishes and they were all good. The value is great because they give you an extra pasta to take home. The service has always been fast and courteous.

Great Italian "family style" restaurant. Large tasty dishes, suitable for large or small groups. Located in a hip cool modern development with other fun attractions.

Food was exquisite and so was the service. Not surprising then that the place was full. Would definitely come back
