“Generous portions.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant while on a trip for a sporting event. They offered a wide variety of Italian food. Most everything on the menu was Italian. We ordered the Two-for-DInner special which included an appetizer, two classic pasta based dinners and a dessert for $40. The crab cakes were very good. The spaghetti/meatball dinner was good as well. The baked ziti was delicious too. The portions are quite big and if you order something from the classic dinner menu, they give you another classic dinner of your choice to take home and eat which was good for us since we are staying in a hotel with a refrigerator and microwave. This is not a totally homemade meal; they serve Barilla pasta products, but it tasty enough for you to want to come back. The prices were reasonable. The staff kept refilling our water promptly, although our waitress was not as attentive. Items are a la carte since they are all mainly pastas which will add a little to the cost. I would recommend this place.

“Excellent for a Chain Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013 via mobile

We tried Maggiano's since we had a gift card. I tried the lobster encrusted tilapia dish and it just melted in my mouth. My wife had a more traditional pasta and it was great. The restaurant is quite large with two levels, and they have Sinatra music playing in the background. Parking is a challenge in the Kenwood mall area, so go a bit early. Also, I booked online and we were seated within minutes, but those trying to get in at around 6 pm were being quoted hour long waits, so it is best to reserve online. It is a true reservation and not just call ahead seating.

“Get ready for a lot of food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I enjoyed this place, and was amazed at the quantity. If you order a pasta dish, they give you another one to take home for the same price. The Caesar salad was very good, and my eggplant parm was delicious, not at all bitter or off-tasting. Other entrees at the table were fine too. A sampling of desserts was good, but nothing really outstanding.

“Good food as usual but the service! Awful - like amazingly poor”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

I like the chain and the good was good as usual. But the waiter was dismissive and downright rude. Asked twice for bread which came only after I stopped a bus boy. My companion wanted butter - never came. It was somewhat embarrassing in that the waiter was so contemptuous of us. Very odd as I have had good service at the chain before.
