First time here for business and a good dinner and I am pretty impressed. A Couple of bottles of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay, one at the beginning and one at the end. Started the night with a Maggiano's salad. Followed by Spaghetti and meatball and ziti a la vodka with sausage. All three dishes were flavorful, fresh, plenty, and Delish. Gravy... More

My family and I went to Maggiano's for Father's Day. I don't have a negative thing to say about this place. Our food was excellent. The cook messed up my order by using a red sauce when I asked for a white wine sauce. It wasn't what I asked for but I ate it anyway. However, once I informed the... More

We had a delicious dinner at this restaurant. The food was very very good, however the service was inefficient (but friendly). Our drinks were rarely filled and we were left hanging for the bill for an inordinate amount of time. Aside from that, we enjoyed our dinner. The decor is typical Maggiano's with red checked tablecloths and dark wood. What... More

Comets Maggiano's often with friends. Good is consistently good. Service is typically very good as well. This visit though I ended up with my pasta dumped on my by the server, it was an accident but burned pretty good, they did comp some of the food as an apology. I will go back, always do. Great place for family style... More

The Italian food is worth a visit. A big fun Italian restaurant with great food for a fairly good price. Our appetizer of fried zuccini sticks was fabulous!! Huge flat sticks - unique and delicious. Our zuppa de mar was generous and fresh. Pasta was also good! Even the signature drink was delicious. We had a cozy, comfortable booth -... More

I had a er nice salad but service was not great. I finished my salad and by the time I was ready to leave my dirty plate was still in front of me. My husband had to ask for a second beer and I wasn't asked if I wanted more coffee. It happens to be a beautiful restaurant and I... More

It's been a while since I've dined at Maggiano's and I must say it was great to be back. We enjoyed great apps, the pasta was cooked to perfection and seasoned well. Main course as always was scrumptious. Even the deserts were delicious. I would recommend Maggiano's because it's reasonably priced and tasty.

I get that we just like to go out to avoid the hassle of cooking at home. Well this is just about the same as eating at home because they use supermarket grade ingredients and do the dishes for you. It's fine for a casual lunch or dinner but don't go here trying to impress your first date or have... More

Surprisingly, has to be amongst the best dining as far as taste goes that I've ever had, considering that one would not normally expect that from a chain that was at a suburban mall. I was there for a Sweet Sixteen party and thank goodness I was! I'm not one to order a calamari/squid but I couldn't get enough of... More
