The only bad thing I can say was the portions were too big for us. Neither my wife nor I could finish our entrees because they were so big... And good! This was not a case of quantity over quality... No, the quality was there, but the portions were just big.

Actually, I was somewhat heartbroken to see the calories listed next to some of the entrees... And my beloved veal Parmesan came in at 1750 calories!! Went with the comparatively lighter linguine du mer... Lots if shellfish with linguine. Very, very good.

Patio seating was especially nice I a spring evening.

We visited Maggiano's for a birthday dinner, and were looking forward to it, as we had enjoyed previous visits years ago. However, the service was perfunctory at best. When we asked the waitress if she could bring some artichoke dip to go with our main course, as we thought they would go well, she matter-of-factly informed us: "Once you change courses you can't go back". Would have been useful knowledge beforehand.

However, the big surprise came a few hours after we left when myself and another from our party came down with severe food poisoning. We knew which dish it was from, as we had ordered a second round of sirloin and only myself and the other sick person had eaten from that plate. The food poisoning was so terrible I spent the whole night on the floor of the bathroom, at one point in time watching a spider crawl across the floor, but being too sick to remove it kill it. This lovely bout of food poisoning came just 20 hours before I had to fly to Europe alone with a 4 month old baby. I nearly missed my flight because I was too sick to pack or get in the car.

When I contacted the restaurant to inform them about the situation- so they could effectively manage any possible danger to other diners, I did not receive a reply for 3 days. When they did reply, I received a template which stated: "Thank you for taking the time to contact us regarding our Denver Pavilions Maggiano's. We know you have many dining options and we appreciate that you chose our restaurant.
We work hard to maintain the highest standards that our reputation is built on and it is very disappointing to hear we did not meet our expectations. Please know all of the feedback we receive is reviewed and used for training purposes so that we may improve our service."

I let them know the details and they never answered back :( Terrible customer service and quite scary that nobody seemed interested in acting on what could be a dangerous dining experience for other guests. There are plenty of other lovely places for going out to eat downtown, save your stomach and choose somewhere else!

Really love this place! Can't beat the classics menu where you get to chose another entree to take home with you!! The lasagna is divine. My son was very excited by the huge meatball he received in his kids spaghetti.
