My husband and I ate here about five years ago while in the area visiting family and we had a very good experience. Unfortunately, this time was a serious disappointment. The place has a wonderful, authentic atmosphere -- Tony Soprano would feel right at home here -- a welcome departure from the soulless corporate theme restaurants that seem to predominate... More

All the entrees were quite tasty, but the vegetarian minestrone was especially good. In addition to attentive service, the atmosphere was quite welcoming and homey. Highly recommended.

Excellent food and service for a party of 8. A true Italian restaurant. Pasta, Seafood, Veal, Chicken and Steak choices. A full bar and a great selection of wines.

Average is how I would rate the food here. Here’s why. My wife had the chicken picante. One of the two pieces was undercooked, although the piece she did eat was flavorful. I had the manicotti, which tasted like overcooked pasta with wallpaper paste. I mean there was no, and I mean no, seasoning. I’m not sure what they used... More

Warmly greeted and then it was downhill. Salad greens were 'translucent' and obviously a prepared mix but either too old or overly chilled. Veal picante like none I've ever seen - cornstarch-like thickened and mostly tasteless. Lasagna was OK. Service was abysmal. Had to ask for everything we received and then it was served late. No refill on coffee but... More

Every time we go to Maisano's we are never disappointed. We have been going there for many years when Frank the original owner came out of the kitchen to greet us and Mary his wife would help us out by carrying our daughter around the restaurant so that we could eat a comfortable meal. The current owners are just as... More

Our server was very good and the food was also. I had the trio (chicken parm, fettucine alfredo, lasagna) and all three were tasty. The tiramisu for dessert melted in the mouth. Yum.

I was a little sceptical about this restaurant, due to it's proximity to a number of shopping malls. It did not disappoint, and served real Italian cuisine.

I have been here probably 30 times in the last four years or so. Always thought of it as respectable food, fairly priced, good staff, and a nice little wine list. Over the last couple of years I thought the food was not as good as it once was, but still acceptable.Last night we had a casual dinner for my... More
