No matter what I get at Maggiano's, I'm bound to be thoroughly pleased. I like to go for lunch when the prices are incredibly reasonable. It's a bit more expensive for dinner. But all of the pastas are to die for. Family style is a great option if you're hungry and with a big group as it's all you can... More

Food was very good, very accommodating for a 2 year old. Service was a little slow, but food was worth wait.

The food was delicious, servings were a good size. We were told that our waitress had a partner working aside her, but anything we ordered (appetizer, drinks, entree and desert) took at least 15-20 minutes to get, we never saw our 2nd waiter the whole time we were there. We will probably go back because the food was great but... More

Dined here with family and was not disappointed. We shared some of the best calamari I have ever had, it was so tender and fresh! I selected the Veal Parmesan and was not disappointed. The portion size was TOO big, but the presentation and taste was excellent. We had an enjoyable evening and everyone was pleased with their selections- Eggplant... More

This chain is not your typical chain dining experience. The food was excellent. The portions were very generous. The service was friendly. Prices were reasonable the quality experience we enjoyed. Tables of four or more can opt for a family meal at a fixed price per person. They keep bringing as much. Of each plate ordered until you have had... More

My husband and I visited Maggiano's with his family a few years back and I remember thinking I wasn't overly impressed with the experience. However, we recently went back and brought our two children ages 6 and 1. I thought for sure we would appear to be an inconvenience with the other diners, however, I was pleasantly surprised at how... More

Ate here the last night of our Boston Tour. Expected something special, but it truly was not. We ate in a dining room downstairs. All of the food was served family style which I didn't care for as I like to be served when I dine out. The food was bland and unmemorable. We order wine and you had to... More

We went to Maggiano's before a show. We were a little early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Our server, Anna, did a great job. She was friendly, professional, and attentive without hovering. When our first drinks arrived, I toasted my wife for her birthday. We enjoyed our meal and were so full, we didn't order dessert. As we... More

you shoud book the table in advance to have dinner, but i couldn't say that their starters or pasta are something extraordinary. The prices are reasonable about 25-30$ per person. Very noisy in the evening.

Amazing food. Brilliant service. Staff are so polite and lovely. Cant't say enough good things about this restaurant. If in Boston it's a must.
