Wow, I cannot get enough of this place. You walk in and you are transported back to old Italy with Sinatra music crooning in the background. Fabulous food, service, atmosphere and price.

Excellent place, (been to another in Vegas...this one wins!), we ate at the bar as it was rammed! Great atmosphere, delicious and genuine American Italian food....lovely wines and a cold beer. Loved it.

Spotted this restaurant as we were strolling around and made the mistake of thinking we'd be able to get a table easy as it didn't look busy, went in at about 8 o'clock Saturday night and it was full, was able to book for 9.15, which was fine as we had a little stroll around the area. On our return... More

My husband and I got great table for people watching and the service was wonderful. The staff informed us about the menu and recommended great dishes that was suitable for us (we have a lot of allergies). The lobster pasta was to die for!

With a large group, it's often hard to keep the food quality high and I was not surprised to experience the same issues here. The chicken parmesan was over cooked and dry and the shrimp Diablo wasn't spicy by any standard. However, the pasta was not over done so that was a relief. If you are ordering family style, take...

Just the same as all the other Maggianos, although the layout in the city is a little different. Good service, decent wine, above average italian-american food

Brenda and Brian made our last night in Boston so enjoyable. The food was delicious, as we knew it would be, since we have a Maggiano's in San Jose, too. We arrived at 6:30 and were seated quickly. The gluten free cheese ravioli was perfect for my husband.

In town for a wedding and wanted a quiet family friendly place to catch up with family. Maggianos Little Italy was the place. Service was excellent, menu was extensive and the dining room was very comfortable. The veal Marsala was very good, but the desserts were the best! Not only were they excellent they were huge!

We had a pleasant, but not special, meal here. We had the special spaghetti and chicken dish which was an odd combination of flavours. Whilst no doubt unique, I'm not sure it really worked as the result was a bit like a bought cook-in sauce. Service was very good.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where, during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting children and eager tourists through the pond. Have your camera ready to capture its peaceful beauty in the middle of a bustling city. Continue on through the Gardens and take in some open green space at the Boston Common, where you can spend time throwing a frisbee, sitting on a park bench, or, in the winter time, skating on the frog pond. Head north from the end of the Common to see the golden dome of the State House, and travel through government center to Quincy Market and Faneuil Hall, both a historic and popular destination worth a quick visit for a first time to Boston. Head to Long Wharf to visit the Aquarium, or catch a boat to Charlestown or even Cape Cod.
