Beautifully decorated. Delicious Italian. Relaxed, comfortable, delicious. Great waitor. Another amazing experience of family time in comfortable non rushed setting enjoying reminiscing about the day over a meal. Can't wait to return.

Very crowded Friday night dinner. The restaurant was well lit and very festively decorated. All of the staff were very cordial and efficient. The food was slightly better than you would experience with a chain restaurant. Really can't compare to an Italian North End Italian restaurant. Prices were equivalent.

My wife and I ate there on our second night in Boston. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. I had a pasta dish and my wife had eggplant. Very good traditional southern Italian cuisine and not far from the hotel

My wife and I ate here on two consecutive nights. The service and food was great, but they were out of several wines on their list. That is the only reason I did not rate them a 5.

This place is enormous and welcoming; the perfect spot after a cold day in the city. The menu offers the reliable standards of Italian-American cuisine: meatballs, red sauce, chicken Marsala, butternut squash ravioli. Prices are reasonable. Service was outstanding. I came with a group of about 20 people. Within ten minutes of ordering they started bringing out the food, and... More

We dropped in late Friday night, got a table right away. Food was fantastic, exactly what we wanted after 5 hour flight before tucking into bed. We got a good wine recommendation and our waiter was lovely. It's a huge place, which makes it feel a little less intimate but whatever, food was great and we enjoyed watching the people.

I had dinner at Maggiano's late last month when visiting Boston for a Conference and was absolutely delighted! The atmosphere was great, the service was top quality, and the food was absolutely outstanding! I had the four cheese ravioli and I couldn't have been happier! I highly recommend this restaurant to all those looking for a unique Italian experience!

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
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.
