It's been about a year or so the last time I visited this restaurant. I've been here about a dozen times over the years... things change over time. I was with two others... I'll only focus on my meal and the shared items. We started off with an appetizer. It consisted of some sliced ham, salami, walnuts, small chunks of... More

This place has the aroma of little Italy as soon as you approach the door. The service was excellent and my lasagne was pretty good (not great). My husband's dish was some pasta named for somebody (Dan maybe?) and was just plain old not good at all! Watery, flavorless with a mish mash of stuff. Don't order it. They do... More

Maggiano's is the kind of place you take friends and family to have a 'good' meal, laugh, be loud and share desserts. The atmosphere is just that, very chain-y, somewhat loud, sort of impersonal service and only average food. However, with that said, still fun, still satisfying and a good place for families and larger groups. The prices are fair,... More

Three friends on our way to a concert. We loved the atmosphere and the wait staff were very friendly. The portions were large. We opted for two orders of Lasagna- couldn't finish it. The taste was amazing. We also ordered candied bacon bruschetta- oh my goodness. I can't wait to go back.

Normal Maggianos restaurant. Service was good, like the artichoke with cheese. Egg plant was ok just too much fried. If you are to for something more healthy I'll go for the Sea bass.

I frequent Maggiano's pretty regularly, for special occasions and regular weekend dinners. I am always delighted with the food, the sauces, even the drinks. Plus they have that eat one/take one deal where you order a dish to eat there and you get a dish to take home for another day. Super! This visit I noticed they had some "lighter"... More

Let's start with our server Mario I he was excellent and his assistant were there when needed for refill or anything we needed during our meal. The food was delicious and the take home second meals were packaged and will taste wonderful. If you visit Maggianos see if you can get seated at Mario's area. The Marco's Meal for two... More

Maggiano's is a Wonderful restaurant with excellent food!! It's a great value because they have a special menu feature (for certain items), you can buy one meal and get a second for free (to take home). They also are very generous to those in need in the community. Thank-you so much Maggianos for always making my dining experiences with family... More
