We stopped in here for lunch and were seated in a large booth. We began with the calamari, which has been soaked overnight in eggs, making it very tender. It was served with marinara sauce and was delicious. I had the Shrimp Dia Vola, lighter version. It was fabulous. Shrimp in a light red sauce with a touch of cream,... More

My teenage son has severe food allergies to dairy, tree nuts and peanuts. He carries an epi-pen with him at all times. We were meeting an out-of-town guest in Denver for dinner and this place caught our eye because they state that meals are cooked to order. We called ahead of time and explained our son's food allergies. When we... More

If you like Italian food, this one is a winner. If you like Olive Garden, you will forget all about it after this. The food here is much better. This location has a nice little outdoor seating area and the staff was great.

Would have liked to give 3.5 stars. Food is good, expected chain italian fare. Portions are generous. Service was good. Big bustling place. Best for families or big group. Nothing to write home about but nothing to complain about either.

We went for lunch and honestly the prices were more appropiate for dinner so we had salads. I had their special salmon salad and my husband had a chicken Caesar salad. Mine was out of this world. He liked his very much especially since they gave him extra dressing and grated cheese.

Very few chains come to par when it comes to italian food, and this is one... service was standard, the food however was marvelous, it is "americanized" (i've been to italy), but very tasty and served optionally family style... as good as it gets in a chain. Do get a reservation and try for early part of the day or... More

Maggiano's is a great place to go out as a family or for business meetings. The food can either be served family style or individually. The food was delicious. A cool little tidbit our waiter told us, was that they pack up the leftovers to give to the homeless after they close.

After a day of traveling, the Rigatoni D was delicious as always. Wonderful bread and the Spaghetti and Meatball was wonderful too. Still wish they had a lower price for lunch or if you are not getting the "free" take home meal .... but we took one anyway and we're able to gift it to a friendly policeman we met... More

We went to Maggiano's for lunch since it was my daughter's birthday. We thought the lunch menu would be a watered down version of the dinner menu but we were pleasantly surprised by all the selection they had at a reasonable price. Plus, when we ordered lasagna they gave us some extra pasta to take home with us. Service was... More

2nd Maggiano's visited of late where food portions considerably smaller than ever. Very noticeable from this fan. What is going on? If the restaurant would like to keep 20+ year fans, then step it back up. Especially given the price. These restaurants should always have 4 or 5 stars, but Denver doesn't get close to a 4.
