“Outstanding food and service for our group”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Kudos to Maggiano's for handling a group of 20+ in stride, and serving up some great dishes in the process! Due to the size of the group, we opted for several appetizers and entrees to be served family style. The spinach and artichoke appetizer was super, as was the calamari - tender, cooked just right. I was able to sample several entrees, and was most impressed with the chicken marsala and the tilapia. I generally do not order lasagna in a restaurant because it usually arrives over-cooked for my taste, and not surprisingly theirs was no exception...the only negative of an otherwise outstanding experience. Tiramisu and apple crostada finished off the evening. Though I had little room left, I tried a bite of each with my coffee and found both to be delicious. I will definitely be back!

“Always Solid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

A chain that doesn't feel like a chain. Good, classic red sauce Italian with some new offerings. Consistently good and reasonable. Nice atmsopheere.

“Lasagna”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2012

The lasagna is always dry, I've tried it multiple times with the same result. Its an ok resturant, nothing spectacular.
