The staff was friendly, the service was very good, and all the food was delicious. The sourdough bread was awesome.

Any Maggiano's we have ever been too has always had a great atmosphere, good food, a great variety and really good service. This one, in Skokie, IL is the closest to our home so we have been here many times, with friends, the family or just the two of us. If there is a problem, which is rare even when... More

They attract an enormous amount of business with promotions such as the buy one, take one home for free campaign. So it's usually crowded and noisy and there's a wait to be seated. I convinced my husband to come back after the last bad experience. "C'mon," I said, "we've got a scratch-off and we'll be in the neighborhood. We just... More

Noisy restaurant, rushed service, ordinary food. Not the Maggiano's of old when the Maggiano's house salad with chunks of blue cheese was reason enough to stop in. Just rather ordinary food, not awful but not memorable either. For lunch, I'd go down to the other end of the mall and have a flavorful meal at The Bagel instead.

Arriving at this restaurant, I was not a happy camper. I didn't expect so many people on Wednesday night and a 30 minute wait. Plus the bar area was small and crowded for such a large area so it was not possible to find a place to sit around the bar and wait. But then I went and got a... More

We went here for dinner after a play at Northlight. We were seated before our reservation time, which was impressive. We started with a small Caesar Salad which was more then enough to share. I had the Chicken Parm and my wife had the Eggplant Parm. With hers she got to take home an addition Pasta Entree of Lasagna. The... More

Lunch here was just what we'd hoped it would be: cozy booth, delicious Italian food, attractive ambiance including red-checked tablecloths, excellent, attentive service and a great location in Old Orchard Shopping Center. We enjoyed the 2 for 1 special. We chose the delicious baked ziti to enjoy there and chose lasagna to take home, For dessert, we shared a profiterole.... More

I took a colleague to Mangianos for the first time. The service and food were spectacular! We shared the $39.95 special. This included a shared appetizer, choice of two pastas each, one to eat then and one to take home and a shared dessert. Portions were good sized. The manager stopped by our table to welcome us and to give... More

As usual, the portion size, food quality and service was great...BUT, the kitchen was so slow tonight. When will this restaurant learn that it's more profitable to staff for peak times and turn tables, instead if being busy and making customers wait. And how many times do you need to hear it will be ready in 3 minutes when more... More
