Maggiano's Little Italy is our go-to place for a moderately-priced upscale dinner out. We held our wedding reception at Maggiano's and our guests raved at the beautiful surroundings, reminiscent of turn-of-the-century Italian restaurants in New York's Little Italy. We also go to Maggiano's in September during the San Genaro festival. You get the same great food, but don't have to... More

This was our first time at a Magliano's restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. I usually prefer family owned Italian restaurants rather than chains. The entrees were fresh and well prepared. The service was great. They even brought out complimentary brochetta since were were first timers. Before we left, our waitress gave us an additional entree to take home. The... More

Went here for the first time recently with a large group of friends. I have been to the Las Vegas venue and it was wonderful. I found this location a bit below that one. My lasagna was just OK. The chicken francaise was very good. The zucchini appetizer was excellent. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. We didn't have dessert,... More

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
