“Wow - really good mall restaurant!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Overall, I have found that mall restauants are overpriced with medicore food - afterall, patrons are a somewhat captive audience. What a nice surprise to try Maggiano's. i was with a large "shopping" group, but we were seated promptly, our waiters Kent and Drew were knowledgable without being pushy, did an excellent job of taking care of our party. All of the food was served hot, with generous portions. A very nice touch was that when our sodas, iced teas got watered down, they were replaced with fresh drinks.
I would recommend this restaurant as a destination in itself - nice atmosphere, great food, excellent service.

“Depends on the waitstaff”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have been to Maggiano's regularly as of late for birthdays and special events. Each time we have had the family style entrees since there were 5+ people at the table. Twice we were given the same waiter and I can't rave about him enough. He is very personable and makes excellent recommendations.
The last time we went, I was disappointed with the service and yes it was a different person. He acted like he couldn't wait to be rid of us and we had to wave him down to get any assistance.
The food is consistently good, but I won't hesitate to ask for the same waiter every time.

“Amazing”
Reviewed November 5, 2012 via mobile

I drove over an hour just to go to Maggiano's. I heard that it was worth the drive, and boy was it! The food, service and atmosphere was fabulous. You can really tell that they use the most fresh and authentic ingredients they can get their hands on. I have been dying to go back...it's addictive!

“A wonderful place to dine with a group”
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.
