“A wonderful place to dine with a group”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

If you have a group of at least 4 people, the family style option here is the way to go. It is always a lot of fun to try and get everyone to actively participate and to agree, on selecting your two appetizers, two salads, two pastas, two main courses and two desserts. Don’t worry if one dish is a huge hit with your group and disappears quickly because your server will keeping bringing more until you have had enough. Expect to have several carry out containers in a large brown with you when you leave. There are better Italian restaurants in Charlotte but this is a unique dining experience for a large group for sure. A great atmosphere serving very good Italian food in a great location. A good time will be had by all.

“Yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

I LOVE Maggiano's. We always get the family style and it is soooo worth it! Every morsel you put in your mouth is delicious and made fresh from scratch. Yummy! Be prepared to wait at least 2 hours if you do not have a reservation at night.

“A very busy Mall. A very relaxed place to get away from it all”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

My wife and I come here on Saturdays for a mid afternoon lunch/dinner. Drinks in one of their booths.. looking over dining room harkening back to the 50's. Service is attentive. Drinks excellent. Food comfortable but good. Sometimes we order the pasta and get one to take home, but hard to do, because there are so many other tempting entres.

“Beware”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Had lunch here 7 October and the service could have not been worse. We first sitting with nothing to drink for about 15-20 minutes, then we finally were served bread in a bowl what ever happened to a basket like other Maggiano's restaurants? The salad came out in a warm bowl just as if the bowl had come out of the dishwasher. The food however was as good as usual but if ever in the Charlotte area again will not go back here. The manager did try to make it up to us by giving us a dessert to take home and said he was sorry.
