I have been here multiple times, and have never been disappointed by the service, or food. The pastas are out of this world to be sure. Delivery service is outstanding as well!

We have been going to Maldini's for many years and have enjoyed the food and service; but tonight it did not deliver. The food was above average, and we enjoyed our calamari and Veggie Special pizza; however, our waiter was the worse that I have ever seen. He may have been new, but that is no excuse. He could have... More

The posh waitstaff is far too important to deliver your sandy under-cooked pasta. Forget getting that drink refilled, or even getting your check before the second-coming. Want takeout? Great, regardless of what you actually want to order the guy on the other end of the phone thinks you want a steak and cheese sub, and will happily repeat this to... More

HORRIBLE SLOW SERVICE!! We usually go to O'Tooles across the street every Wednesday after work but they had a private party going on so my coworkers and I decided to try Maldini's. There was hardly anyone there and everything from our refilling out water, to getting our drinks and food, took forever. The waitstaff were at the bar watching tv!... More

Group of 12 mid-week evening. Very few customers. The group ordered a variety of entrees. Most complained of the food being over-salted. I ordered a 10" margherita pizza. It was nothing special. The crust was thin and crisp, but tasteless. The toppings, halved grape tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella, were lackluster. Prices weren't unreasonable- the pizza was $9-but I doubt that... More

I live in the neighborhood and have enjoyed eating at Maldini's regularly since it opened. The place is so worth your time for an authentic Sicilian meal. Most of the time I order from the specials and you absolutely cannot go wrong that way. We've had almost all the dishes over the years and most often get the Pasta Friulana,... More

I attended a happy hour with a group of friends and then 20 stayed for dinner. The server made up an alcoholic fruit juice drink what was really good. I had the shark which I really liked. The back room was super for a large group. Everything was good except for when it was time to pay the bill. Took... More

I consistently have been going to this restaurant for years. It is one of my absolute favorite Italian places in Richmond. I have tried the pizza, lasagna, pollo al limone, and chicken marsala. All are wonderful!

Had one of the beat servers I've ever had his name was Carlos. His manager made him awkwardly ask for the groupon in the middle of us eating though strangely enough seemed a little unprofessional as most places ask for it after not during the meal. Food was pretty good. I ordered the gnocchi with pesto.

I wish this restaurant had been open back when I lived in this neighborhood 23 years ago. On our most recent excursion to Maldini's I had the Veal Al Marsala and it was great! Tender, easy to cut (not tough like in some other area restaurants) and in a flavorful marsala sauce. Not thick and heavy, just right. Shrimp Da... More
