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

I went to Maggiano's on a Thursday night. I soon as I walked in i was seated right away since the place is pretty big with plenty of seating spaces. It would be a great option for large parties. The food was very good, the portions were large and not very expensive. My main issue is with the service. My... More

I went to Maggiano's restaurant almost every day and the food is always served hot. It had a diverted menu and I tried most of its specials. Within a good distance from wherever you are in Boston this restaurant was the best!

The food was delicious -- I had the chicken saltbocca, and my partner who is gluten free had the rigatoni D. Honestly I have never tasted better gluten free pasta. Excellent service too.

Went for lunch during the week and were greeted and seated immediately. Bread was warm and very tasty. We decided to split an entree, so I ordered a side salad and my husband got the bruschetta appetizer. I was very surprised when it was served cold, on a chilled plate, and it tasted nothing like I have ever had before,... More

My wife and I ate here late on a Thursday night. The wait staff was very pleasant, the setting was quiet (my kind of restaurant), the food was very good and reasonably priced. The restaurant is as good as any in the North End and easier to get to.

Good service from start to finish at this traditional Italian restaurant. There is a relaxed atmosphere and you are made to feel very welcome. Good bread to start. We had a delicious Chicken Parmesan (16.75) and a very good Ziti Sausage Pasta Bake (13.25) and shared green beans with bacon. We were so full we could manage dessert. Well worth... More
