Comfortable Italian

The stuffed mushrooms were absolutely delightful, as was the sausage- and- peppers hor de vours. I had the Fettucinni Alfredo, which was rich and creamy and really filling. Everybody seemed to enjoy their main dish, but nobody raved as they did over the starters. The service was good, and our... read more

This is a nice place to go for a party or before a show. We ordered the calamari as an appetizer, and it was outstanding. The balsamic salmon was prepared perfectly as well.

Lovely restaurant with large portions of delicious Italian food. Spacious enough that you don't feel like you're bumping elbows with the next table even on a packed Saturday night, seriously fast service even on during dinner rush. Service was very friendly an attentive, location is perfect just a block away from the parking garage. Reasonably priced as well. An average... More

Party of 10 for dinner. Had reserved well ahead on open table and called to reconfirm. They seated us 40 minutes late after several reminders without so much of an apology. Poor service - surly waiter, mixed up orders, food just dumped on table corners. Appetitizers : stuffed mushrooms (good), crispy calamari (good), mussels (horrid). For mains the ravioli and... More

We took our Mom here for her 80th birthday. Everyone had a great meal and when they heard it was her birthday they treated her extra special. Fabulous food.

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!

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 Boston next.

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
