“Delicious Italian food. Tastier than most.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

I often find Italian restaurants have somewhat standard and typical food. This restaurant has great flavoring. We had the family style food including pasta seafood chicken eggplant on a variety of sauces. All were delicious. And the cheesecake was one of the best ever!!

“Cozy amidst the crush”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Okay, it was a Saturday night. We were in town for the Flower Show, so there were crowds galore. After reviewing the menu online, we decided on Maggiano's. We had no reservations and we had to wait for about half an hour for a table. I didn't think the wait was too bad. It was a Saturday night and the area was jammed with attendees to the Flower Show. We were given a good table that made it feel very cozy. The waiter was great --- very pleasant, very personable and not in the slightest bit appearing to be rushed by the vast number of patrons in the crowded restaurant. The food was very good, and the waiter was attentive, making sure we were pleased with every course. Even the special dietary requests were handled with aplomb. A very enjoyable night in a very pleasant restaurant --- good food, good service, good layout of the restaurant.

“Very pleased”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Had to wait about 25 minutes to be seated on a busy Thurs night with no reservations, but once we got a table, service was swift and excellent. Asked for small bottle of Pellegrino - none was cold, so waitress served us a large bottle for same price as small. Chicken marsala very tasty. Manager stopped by table to see if all was right. We really liked this restaurant.

“Truly enjoy this restaurant, especially take-out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Suggest to ALWAYS make a reservation as there are always a line waiting (without a reserv., waiting is 30-45 minutes) .... meals are good, LOVE their Bloody Mary's .... but truly appreciate their take-out ... when staying across the street in the hotel, run and pick it up, portions are large enough to share, excellent packing, include bread/butter and anything else you ask for, with reasonable prices.

“Nice Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We had lunch here, and it was wonderful. We had the special, Caprese grilled chicken for about $10. It was very busy, but the staff was great, attentive and engaging. I would go back.
