After walking thru The Boston Common, The Boston Public Gardens and taking a ride on The Swan Boats we were ready for lunch. We had not been to Maggiano's for a while so decided to go there. It was around 2:30 pm and the restaurant was pretty empty. We were seated at a curved booth near the back of the... More

This is a very large restaurant and evidently also very popular. When we arrived, there was a thirty minute wait for a table, so we just made a reservation, left and came back. We were taken to a nice, round table in the back corner of the restaurant. The food was excellent, the service was very good (we had a... More

This place is a lot o' fun. After a long day shlepping around Boston it was a welcome sight. We had our Wedding Reception Dinner here 14 years ago and it's still a great place to eat, eat, eat. We brought our two kiddos and felt very welcomed. The service was outstanding and prompt. We ordered the Family Style and... More

Food is delicious but the portion size seems to have decreased since my last visit a year ago. The waitstaff was very attentive and personable.

Pitched up for a late night supper and received a warm welcome from Thomas, our server - what a great guy. The room is wonderful, a throwback to days gone by with its decor and photographs. Food was really good if not spectacular, would certainly recommend a visit.

Portions are HUGE. Sangria is refreshing. Bread is good. Service is fast. Server was helpful and friendly. Price was reasonable for a large city sit-down place. Walked in after touring all day - no dress code, which was nice ... Would eat here again!

We went for dinner at the Maggiano's and enjoyed it very much. The place is very nice, staff very friendly and the choice of Italian food is very good. The quality of the food was good even though the pasta of my wife were unfortunatly a bit overcooked and not very tasty. The kids and myself (we had veal, chicken... More

Tony our server was fantastic we had a fussy 6 month old and TOny was there when ever we needed him. The seasonal white sangria was delish, the Lobster pasta was incredible. Friendliness of all the staff was such a delight. This place has true Boston Spirit. A must eat if your in Boston. Ask for Tony he is amazing.

We've visited this Maggiano's location several times over the last five years. Every time we have been very pleased with our choice. Today we drove all the way from CT to feed the ducks in the Public Garden, have cupcakes from Lulu's Sweet Shoppe in the North End, and and early dinner at Maggiano's. The crab and shrimp cannelloni was... More

We decided to go to Maggiano's Little Italy because it was recommended by one of the hotel staff, (Boston Park Plaza). The restaurant is beside the hotel, so quite convenient. We were not disappointed and in fact, we ate dinner there twice, even though there are hundreds of good restaurants in and around Boston. The interior is elegant, yet most... More
