Maggianos always puts out fairly good, though not always completely authentic, Italian food (I'm first-generation Italian, so I know whereof I speak). I've been there many, many times over the years because it's close to my home, but this last time was the LAST. It is always ridiculously crowded, the noise level is such that you feel like you're eating... More

Friends recommended this place. They were right. We had a very enjoyable experience. You can tell when a place is well-run. Everyone working there seemed to be "on", offering superb customer service. I stood up, just looking for the bathroom and the waiter walking past pointed me in the right direction. Lizzie, our waitress, was delightful, intuitive, and efficient. Delicious... More

We have visited this Resturant many times and it just keeps getting better!! My Fiancé and I went prior to a Show and since we had reservations, sat us right away in a booth! The server was right there to take our drink order and recommend some appetizers. He also told us about the Specials and his favorites...we had some... More

Whether take out or dining in, Maggiano's is always our first choice for pasta. We also love the mussels and calamari appetizers.

Family lunch and we all enjoyed it very much! They have a great deal in which you can pay a little more and get a 2nd meal to bring home. The stuffed mushroom appetizer was awesome too. Cute atmosphere. Makes you feel like you're in Italy. You definitely should give it a try!

So, I made reservations well in advance for my Wife's Birthday party (group of 10). She loves the food here, and was super pleased that I choose this location for the family event. I spoke to the folks there 3 different times, about the reservation, and NOT ONE TIME did anyone ever mentioned a restricted menu for a larger party.... More

As a final to our great holiday in SoCa, we decided to stop at the restaurant on our way to LAX to catch our flight to Amsterdam. We enjoyed great Italian food, cooked by Italians and served by Italians. Will go back when have the chance.

The portions are huge. We have eaten here many times in the last few years. It's always busy during meal times and can be quite noisy. Food does come to the table quickly and the staff is always awesome, which always amazes me since it's so busy! The food is delicious only once we had a not so good lasagne,... More

Good food, kids menu, friendly staff. It was packed during a weekday! With people waiting outside to be seated but we did reserve a table in advance. Huge parking space.
