We went to Maggiano's before catching a play. The food was excellent and the portions plentiful. The cocktails were different and refreshing. The service was impeccable and they got us out in time to get to the play with time to spare. We'll make it a routine to eat there on our next trip to Boston, for sure!

We enjoyed this restaurant. The pasta was excellent and the flatbreads too. We were a bit too tired to enjoy it more but would definitely recommend it. Very short distance from our hotel too.

My wife and I went on July 5th. Had reservations but arrived early and was seated within five minutes. Wine was reasonable, food was excellent and so was the deserts. The waitstaff was very good and was always on the more. Great atmosphere and location. We will go back many times.

If you are a high energy person and love huge restaurants crammed with people and activity, this place is for you. It is very noisy, and expect to wait for a table, even on a weeknight. Service is ok but not as attentive as I would like. We ran out of drinks several times. We also had a long wait... More

This was the second time we have been to Maggiano's in Boston and we shared the Italian Sausage flatbread, followed by the Veal Parmesan. It was as good as we had remembered the first time and as always the staff were friendly and attentive. The portions are very big, but delicious! It was a lovely meal, made even more special... More

We were a group of 15. We ate here two nights before the Boston Marathon. Our waiter did a great job with a large group, however the order got a bit mixed up. My order had to go back and redone. Everyone at the table did the family plan which was a total overkill of food. I honestly wouldn't recommend... More

Their spicy sausage and gnocchi pasta is off the chain! Sat at the bar since it was graduation day at MIT and the guys behind the bar did a great job! Walking distance from the Boston Park Plaza Hotel.

A good choice for when you have a big group and want to dine family style. Sometimes they are slow to replenish when you ask for seconds, but they always bring them eventually. The apple crostini is to die for!
