We were honestly thinking the North End would have cornered the market on Italian food but this place was excellent. We walked from our hotel, the Revere, in a few minutes. My son had the Shrimp Fra Diavalo, which tasted like heaven. I had the parmesan-crusted tilapia, which was lighter but more food than I anticipated-They do not skimp on... More

During a brief stay in Boston whilst on a Titan tour we visited Maggianos twice - the second time because it was so good the first time. I broke all the rules & had crab cakes - in an Italian restaurant - boy were they good & with an excellent dip. My wife had a good steak the first time.... More

We ordered family style dinner. The scrumptious food just kept coming and coming until we couldn't eat any more. Our waiter was courteous and friendly, and even found us some cheesecake when the kitchen was out. Overall, a wonderful experience.

Love maggianos. The bartender that was working last Wednesday night was great and I didn't feel like an imposition, which I am finding so many restaurants consider single female diners to be. Hands down, best salad and conversation I had in Boston.

We visited this restaurant as some of my Indian friends suggested this place. To be true, I was not disappointed at all. The staff, very humble and polite... The restaurant is situated opposite to park plaza hotel at a corner. In the menu, you can choose for individual dishes or can go for family style. We chose family style and... More

We were not planning to eat here, but in hindsight we were lucky to find the seafood restaurant opposite closed. Right from the entry the bar gives you the feeling you are in Italy, all the staff were very pleasant, then the food, good choice of options, good size of portions and very very tasty. Looking forward to our next... More

We ate here as a family before a show. Food was delicious, we chose family style which allowed us to try a bit of everything. The stuffed mushrooms were yummy! I really liked the atmosphere, it was busy. It felt like we were at a wedding reception. Lots of fun! Definitely worth going to!!

It was late, we didn't want to walk far from the Park Plaza Hotel, so Maggiano's fit the bill. Despite being a chain restaurant (I've been to a few other locations) the food was excellent, large portions, and our waiter was top-notch. No complaints at all. Love the Sangria!

This restaurant was a surprise. The atmosphere and service was exceptional. The food was excellent. The lemon piccata, calamari, and lasagna were delicious. And the servings were very big. A great buy.
