Large portions and if you order a pasta, you can chose one to take home free. Their salads are great, as is the lasagna and spaghetti. We've celebrated many birthdays here and love it.

Really bad Italian food that is overpriced and served in a dirty restaurant. Been to several chains like this but expected this would be much better. Thought perhaps El Fornio or Romanos that both have good food in nice setting. This place is on par with Olive Garden at double the price. Never will come back here again

Friend and I ordered the meal for two at Maggiano's. Wonderful spinach salad for appetizer. I asked for fresh mozzarella instead of blue cheese and Alfredo, our waiter was more than agreeable to make the substitution. For the entree, I had rotini with chicken and mushrooms and my friend had the four cheese ravioli. We sampled each other's entree and... More

All the drinks are good but The Mai Tai is my favorite cocktail but be careful because you will feel addicted and its really difficult to taste the alcohol ..the food quality is excellent. They are always really busy. You should make your reservation in advance. You will enjoy for sure!

We always enjoyed eating here. This time, the chef took some time to say hello to the guests. They surprised us with an appetizer for our celebration. Large portions for some dishes. Love it.
