They drive you in and out like cattle. The ambiance is great, the food is great but they think we're cows on a cattle drive. I'm a regular but I'm taking a break. I won't be back for a while. Moooooooo.

I have been to other Maggiano's where the service wasn't very good. Not so here. The service and staff are excellent. My wife arranged for a lunch after a memorial service. She made reservations for 15 people at 1:00. The service let out early and called to let them know we were on the way. No problem they had a... More

We went there for a birthday dinner knowing there would not be any disappointments. The food was tasty but it seems like the portions are just a bit smaller. The only minor issue was too many tables squished together. The person at the next table kept bumping chairs against mine. Also our table was on an aisle and kept getting... More

I have enjoyed great appetizers and good wine here on a few occasions, but my dinner last evening was awful. Have had heir banquet food a couple times before and it was mediocre at best. All entrees were served cold; no excuse for that. Service was acceptable, wine prices were very high, and food was cold. Not a memorable evening,... More

I've gone to Maggiano's many times, and I'm always pleased at their food and service. They do make everything on site, and it feels like an authentic Italian joint that might have been visited by Al Capone back in the day. But they have a much more diverse menu than "red sauce Italian." In addition, they have several dishes on... More

We had my daughters wedding reception here and the food was amazing. The range of the menu has something to suit everyone and all was cooked to perfection.

We went for lunch and truly had a great experience. The waiter was friendly and accommodating. He made excellent suggestions. I know it's a chain - but they really have it down. Rigatoni D is always spot on and everyone loved the meals that came with one to take home. They gave us a complimentary appetizer as well as lemon... More

Lasagna is awesome, Portabella ravioli is delicious. Service was great. Will drive an hour each way just to get some good Italian again.

Husband and I just got the appetizer, 2 dinners, dessert, and 2 entrees to go special and paid less than $60 with tip. The food was really good and you can't beat price for what you get. The atmosphere was romantic too.

We went out to Maggiano's for dinner and were very happy with the choice. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good. We had Chicken Marsala which was delicious with a Caesar salad, also very good. Chocolate Zuccotto Cake was decadent. We shared the desert and it was just enough. I would go here again sometime soon.
