“Elegant and Affordable”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Maggiano's in San Jose's "Santana Row" offers great food at very affordable prices. This is a simple yet elegant place that rises above the usual shopping center family diners. Great ambiance at the bar and restaurant hall. Good (and patient) service from their waiting staff. Take advantage of their current offer: if you order any of their classic pasta dishes, you can get another classic pasta dish for free to go: two for the price of one. You can also order special "family dinners" at a fantastic price. Good selection of standard seafood, chicken, and beef dishes. You won't be disappointed.

“Lovely Restaurant on Santana Row”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stopped by for an early dinner and to use the birthday coupon they sent. We ordered the Two for $39.95, which included an appetizer to share, 2 entrees, a dessert to share, and two entrees to go. By the time we finished our bread and the calamari appetizer, we were too full to finish our entree. In addition to the dessert we ordered, they gave us cookies with a candle for my birthday. Great food and our very efficient waitress, Jessica, packaged everything we didn't eat to go.

There's free parking in the garage, great atmosphere, piped-in italian songs, and consistently good food. The few children we've seen are vey well behaved and quiet.

“Great Italian Meal away from home”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

I went to Maggiano's with business partners on a previous visit to San Jose and was presently surprised. First time I went to this chain. Usually chain type Italian restaursnts are not worth the time, but this place was the tops. Recently came back for our 25th anniversary and my wife and i drove up from SF just for a meal. Setting is fantastic. Santanna Row is great to visit. Restaurant was packed and they told us 45 min wait. It was actually less then 15mins.
appetizers , meal and dessert was terrific. Couldn't have been treated any better. Wait staff was fantastic. Prices were great. Red sauce was one of the best I have ever had. Couldn't believe it was a chain. Will definitely be going back next time in town

“A Perfect Evening for Two or For A Special Occasion Party”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

The food is excellent. You can order individual dinners ala carte or
if are hosting a dinner party of 20 to 35 you can get a special room and order family style. Maggiano's knows how to make each person feel important and strives to give excellent service, without rushingor hovering/smouthering . We have hosted several special parties there.

“Food great but busy and noisy”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

We often go to Maggiano's when in San Jose, but after this last time, we have decided this is a place to enjoy lunch rather than dinner. It was super busy, very noisy, and it took two hours for the three of us to have a simple dinner. The waitress apologized and offered us free desserts which then took forever to get. Delicious, but this is a place to go when you have no concerns about the time.
