We had booked earlier in the day for this and turned up and were shown straight to our table, it has a very nice ambiance about it from the checked red table cloths to the background music of Sinatra, Martin etc. the menu has a good choice of different choices on it with something for everybody. There are healthy options... More

Took a friend to Maggiano's to celebrate his birthday -- we shared the crab cake appetizer and the new, lighter chicken Francese. Both were terrific, as was the miniature apple tart with ice cream.

The service, atmosphere, and food quality were fantastic. This restaurant is within easy walking distance of the Boston theater district. This restaurant is suitable for a couples night out or a large gathering.

Probably the best Italian meal we have had but the portions are HUGE. The general ambience of the restaurant is that of one family restaurant but there's also a grown up aspect to it. The bruschetta was very tasty as was the the shrimp pasta. Our server was Steve who was great & went the extra mile. We dined here... More

Went with a group of 7 and decided to go family style. Food didn't taste overly fresh.....more of a mass production effort. It was all rather stodgy. No sides of veg served. The only bright spot dessert of tiramisu. I won't be in a hurry back.

This place is quite busy over the weekend. I would recommend making reservations. The food was exceptional. The service was great. The background music added to the ambiance of the place.

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!
