I wish you could give half stars so that I could have given it a 4 ½. While it's not a five star, it's pretty close. I've eaten here on several occasions, and to be honest, I have never had anything that was less than delicious. It is Italian and that's all they serve, so keep that in mind. Things... More

Maggiano's is the most fun when you go in a group of four or more for a Family Style dinner. Our group of four chose three appetizers, four entrees and two desserts to share--all of which are served family style and are "bottomless" (i.e., all-you-can eat). You certainly won't go home hungry--and we took home enough leftovers for another meal!... More

Reservations are a must. We luckily had some, and were promptly seated. The wait time for walk-ins was 2 hours. The food was good, slightly pricy. Glass of wine will run $9-15. Bottles $40-70. Large restaurant with many side party rooms, and an upstairs. Bar area is large with much seating. Adjacent to the South Park Mall. Only down side,... More

WOW...had not been to a Maggiano's before and had a great experience. Did not realize it was a 'chain restaurant ' and far exceeded my expectations when I was informed of that. Wait staff most helpful and made us feel special. Was pleasantly surprised that they offered special pasta dishes with a 'bonus'. Buy one and take home one, all... More

The service and food are always great, didn't expect the crowd that we observed, apparently due to the holidays. We had to wait two hours for a table. Guess next time we should make a reservation!

Have you ever felt almost embarrassed by the amount of food that continued to be brought to your table? That was certainly the case when our family of 6 opted for the set price family style dinner just before Xmas. For less than $30.00/person we were treated to 3 appetizers (salad, fried calamari and fried mozzarella), 4 entrees and 2... More

Nothing exciting. Service was mediocre. Had to keep asking for refills on drinks. Food itself tasted reheated. Was not impressed.

We went in for a lite lunch. Very professional service. The Tuscan soup was to die for. We both had the chicken meatball sandwich. We both agreed that we enjoy our meatballs much more. We both felt the sandwich was dry. The smell alone would bring me back to the restaurant as we probably should have had a full meal... More

Entire meal was excellent. Food was ample, very tasty, and overall great value. I have never been disappointed with my meal at Maggiono's. Meal even included 2 free entries to... More

We've been in Maggiano's many times in the past years. For some reason, this chain has changed in many ways. The food is quite salty, taste is not quite the same. The service is good, but the entire atmosphere is much lower than before. Perhaps things changed faster than we can catch up. The cheese cake taste like factory made.... More
