A large restaurant but was still very friendly and accommodating. Portions are large but very tasty. Our starters were so big we couldn't eat all our lasagne! Recommended for families too.

Went there for lunch. I've been to many Maggiano's in the Los Angeles area. This was typical Maggiano's fare; nothing exceptional so I wondered about the high ratings on tripadvisor, yelp and opentable.

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

Not sure if pastas was house made but the food was very good. They seem like they added a little love to it as well.
