Good restaurant. Often eat here for special business lunches. Menu is good. Prices are also good. Nice place that is not noisy where you can carry on a conversation.

Family tradition for the past few years has been to dine here on Christmas Eve. They have a great special on pasta - buy one get one to go for free. Several choices to choose from with the benefit being there is fresh Italian pasta for lunch or dinner on the day after Christmas. Orlando, our server was very attentive... More

Always a favorite place to eat when visiting the south. Food is tasty but have experienced some issues in the past of not getting what was special ordered. On this occasion, we ordered 4 dinners for takeout and that was done in person. Ravioli, Chef Mann's Country-style pasta, Chicken & Spinach Manicotti & Tuscan Shrimp & Chicken with added italian...

That's right. Last year I put up with the same bad food. We have been coming here for the last several years as a ritual to see my daughter and grandchildren. However, this year has put an end to this ritual. We will go someplace else next year. Why? because the food sucks!!! Is there a shortage of cheese? I... More

We always enjoy Maggianos. We normally do the family style. We had 9 for a birthday celebration for my son. It was good, but seemed lacking something. Can't explain it just not as magical as the past. I would still go back.

I've been to several other locations so I was very excited to try this one. The layout is typical but I loved the high ceilings and the upstairs portion of the restaurant. It was a bit sad yet entertaining to see the continuous look of dread every time a server had to trek their way up those stairs with a... More

Upstairs Maggiano's South Park Mall was the perfect place for my boy's Bar Mitzvah. The banquet manager and assistant were wonderful during planning. We knew what we wanted and provided the decorations, props, games, DJ, etc. with the banquet group happy to accommodate and add as needed. During the event the staff was attentive and on top of the food,... More

my husband and I ate here on a Saturday night.. It was quite busy but we were accommodated pretty fast. The service was great, food portion was huge and they also have a deal that you can order two food with a price of one. The second food should be taken home. I believe it is a good place to... More

My husband had eaten here many times in the past and always said it was a place he wanted to take me. I understand why. We made reservations and were seated immediately upon our arrival. Our server, Michael, was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu & wine choices. He brought our bottle of wine out and served it properly.... More
