I wish this restaurant had been open back when I lived in this neighborhood 23 years ago. On our most recent excursion to Maldini's I had the Veal Al Marsala and it was great! Tender, easy to cut (not tough like in some other area restaurants) and in a flavorful marsala sauce. Not thick and heavy, just right. Shrimp Da... More

My husband and I were touring Richmond and had purchased a groupon for this restaurant and what a deal it was! Service was great, food was tasty and generous, and the atmosphere very pleasant. The only thing I didn't like was the cannoli's didn't taste fresh. Otherwise, we had a great time and would recommend this restaurant.

My wife is originally from Boston and in the 11 years we have been married since she has been down here, we have looked all over Richmond to find an Italian cuisine restaurant that would rival the North End of Boston. Maldini's is that place. The pizza of course is the best we have had. The pasta dishes are to... More

Not much to say. We gave this restaurant a 2nd chance after a mediocre meal a few months ago. The service was fine but the food is just not good. From appetizer to dessert, just poorly executed in every way. We will not be returning.

Maldini's is excellent. The salmon and capers appetizer, garlic bread, eggplant parmigian with gluten free spaghetti, manicotti, and a gluten free pizza to go were all great. They offer a large selection of gluten free dishes.....and tasty. The restaurant is roomy and attractive. My husband declared they have the best sauce he's had since we left NY. Also the best...

I love the N.Y. style pizza that they have here. It's definitely my favorite and the best I've had while living in Richmond. I've also had their lasagna and many other dishes. Everything has been very good.

Maldini's is in our neighborhood and we have been visiting since it opened in 2005. The food quality is consistently high. No corners are cut. Wait staff have told us when certain items are not available because the produce or meat did not meet the chef's standards. The place has passed the test of my Sicilian friends who are also... More

We returned to this restaurant after a couple years. It was just as good as the last time we visited it. They have wonderful Italian dishes to eat. The service was nice and friendly. We enjoyed the Italian music playing in the background. WE highly recommend it for a great Italian meal experience.
