we booked to eat here before we left Uk because we have eaten at this chain in Las Vegas once again the food was superb but as the boston restaurant is massive we felt it lacked a bit of the romantic/personal touch but still a very good meal.

Their Family Style menu for any size group is UN-beatable! The food, the service, the wine selections. Honestly there is not one reason I wouldn't return everytime I am in Boston. I introduced a friend to the restaurant on our last trip and she went for dinner then returned for Lunch the next day!

Boston Maggiano's is a restaurant that I regard as reasonably priced for good Italian food and with serving sizes that are eye popping. Although not as good as what I believe is the "mother ship"store in Chicago on No. Clark Street, I enjoy their meals. My menu preference is any of their seafood related items and my personal favorite is... More

We stumbled on the restaurant by accident rather than by design as we had just arrived in Boston and our room at the Park Plaza wasn't ready. We were hungry so went out in search of food. From the minute we sat down we felt like royalty! The waitress recommended dishes and wine. They took care of my dietary requirements... More

Almost facing our hotel (Boston Park Plaza) we found this Italian American experience, great flavours and quality Italian dishes but ginormous portions. On our second visit we shared dishes and even then left full and fit to burst with a very reasonable bill Staff were only too willing to help with choices and really knew the menus

We were recommended this restaurant but honestly found it dull and over priced. It was very dark inside and the food was nothing special, choices were limited. We got the shock when our bill arrived with a $56 charge for four glasses of wine. We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.

We opted for Italian after a number of fish dinners and Maggiano's was excellent. Great portions and very good. Service was also very good. I suggest a long walk is a wonderful way to end the dinner!

I asked the waitress to choose my meal because everything on the menu sounded delicious. I was astonished by Isabel's Scallop Orecchiette. The best scallops I have ever had in my life. And what about the Apple Crostada, simply delicious!!

If I could give this restaurant 6 stars I would! From the moment we arrived I felt taken care of like a frequent customer. It was our first time. Chef came out with appetizer on the hosue to welcome us. The asparagus filled ravioli to die for! I had some special menu requests that were no problem at all. Old-world... More
