We had thanksgiving lunch here. It was a set price of $45 US. We had four courses and each course was huge. There were three of us but the amount of food we had served was enough to feed a family of eight or more. What was not eaten was packed into foil containers for us to take with us.... More

I had the best... hands down...cheese ravioli with marinara sauce last night for dinner. The pasta was like no other I have ever had. It was so fabulously fresh and delicious. This was my first visit to this restaurant and I so look forward to returning. The staff was warm and energetic with our table, which made for a pleasant... More

The food served here is average compared to smaller more authentic Italian rest; however the atmosphere is for a young crowd who rather be seen as cool and hip. Good place for party dinners instead of intimate rendezvous.

My favorite dishes at Maggiano's are their salads. Specially the salmon and the spinach salads. They do have a very nice selection of pastas and meats as well and all their deserts are wonderful.

Anytime I am near Maggiano's in Costa Mesa, I make sure to stop and have the Rigatoni "D" as it is by far the BEST pasta I have ever had. My waiter was Marcos and kudos to him, as he was super friendly and also shared the same love for Rigatoni "D". We have been going to this restaurant for... More

We made a reservation for 8:15 pm on a Saturday night, and we were seated at just about 8:15 despite large numbers of people waiting for a table. We felt they did an excellent job of serving a very large number of people without appearing to be over loaded. Although the room was full of diners, we felt that we... More

Delicious bread, mediocre food, good service, and reasonable prices, this restaurant is convenient to South Coast Plaza attractions but if you have the time, find someplace with better food. A disappointment.
