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

I have been going to this place for years. I have had family dinners,business meetings and weddings at this location. Every visit was very nice and the food is delish. Portions are huge and sharing is a good idea. The salads are absolutely fab. The place is fun but can be very busy. Lately, if you buy a pasta entry... More

We live in California, and wanted to throw a dinner in the Chicago area (which is more central to our extended family) to celebrate our son's recent California wedding. We had 23 adults and 3 children attend the dinner in the Donato room downstairs. The food was uniformly good, and the artichoke dip starter, pork and chicken entrees, plus the... More

don't go here if you have a problem over-eating... The food is great, and the portions are large. I ate my fill and then some. The chocolate cake for dessert is very good; very rich.
