Great meal!

The fettucini was homemade and perfectly cooked. The bruschetta was excellent with fresh tomatoes and a great balsamic drizzle. The service was good but a little slow. The only reason this isn't a five is that the Caesar was overdressed for my taste. We will definitely come back here when we visit... read more

I grabbed a large takeout order from Maggiano's over the weekend. Nothing was missing and the order was there and ready when I arrived. I appreciate that they have a separate entrance for those sitting down for a meal versus those picking up an order. It seems to really move things along and reduce congestion. I had a really good...

The sangria was excellent with muddled fruit. Stuffed mushrooms and chicken piccata all perfect. I went home with a dessert that was amazing! Please go you'll enjoy!

2 of us went here on a monday night and therefore it was not crowded at all. I got the special cannolis stuffed with shrimp and crabmeat and I could not believe how tasty it was. I also got a small caesar salad which was excellent. my friend got a chicken dish and she said it was absolutely perfect. It... More

I took my mum last night and we had a really enjoyable meal. Mum had the chicken saltimbocca and I had peppercorn steak both with garlic mash and a side of Italian salad. Simply food well cooked and full of flavour. Service was excellent. Mum can't drink so she had a raspberry lemonade which was one of the best drinks... More

First time and last time in this restaurant. We arrived , we were greeted by the hostess, then she disappeared for good 10 to 15 minutes. Restaurant was half emptied. Finally we got seated in a horrible booth seat. Another 10 to 15 minutes to see a face. Water was served in a dirty glass with sediments. Bread was served... More

Reservations are a must, and the restaurent was brimming at capacity on that Saturday night (as one would expect). The atmosphere was good although I must say that the place... More

We were looking for a good solid Italian restaurant in the Back Bay before heading over to the House of Blues for a concert. We were seated promptly, approached by a server (Hannah) within minutes. The menu was explained, opinions offered only after we asked. Food was delicious and plentiful, wine recommended was perfect. Service was impeccable and professional. Music... More

Maggiano's deliveries a wonderful array of food choices that will satisfy almost every diner. Family style dining with selected courses and as needed refills is a great way to enjoy a lot of choices for a small or large group. The staff provided excellent guidance for our food and wine choices. The atmosphere is wonderfully Italian family motif but with... More
