Got our to-go order wrong. Last time we came they never even brought out the to-go. Frustrating in that aspect because the to-go is half the reason to come. But the service and food was good.

This has been the second or third time that I have dined here for lunch and i have had cold food. I realize that during lunch the traffic may be increased however i don't think that it should take away from the service

We arrived early for our reservation and at that time, the hostess approached and asked if we had a reservation and confirmed our last name - - she then immediately guided us towards the front room, which felt completely separate and NOT a part of the restaurant - almost like two rows of booths with lots of windows - it was almost like an after thought - kind of a bummer when we were trying to celebrate Father's day and make it a special family outing after church. They could seat people who insist on wearing T's and shorts there instead - We were in dresses and ties -

Amazing pasta as always. 15 minutes for drinks and bread was a bit crazy. Sat right away with our reservation but being in the "Cafe" area feels cramped and forgotten. Getting someone else's to go drinks should not take precedence over saying hello. Also, 1/3 way into my soda I noticed a big creamy glob at the bottom of the cup. When agitated, it began breaking into pieces and floating around. How nauseating. Waiter took it away and brought a new one >5 minutes later. Never been so disappointed in the service, and we drove 30 minutes for this.

Went there for Father's Day as my husband loves it. The food is mostly always good as well as the service. Things moved a little slower this go round but granted it was Father's Day and it was busy. Overall, it was a good choice.

We made reservations for Father's Day and I was so disappointed with the entire experience. They put us in an overflow/banquet room so you felt like an afterthought and the service reflected that as well. Our server never took our drink order, we had to flag down another server to do that and once we finally had drinks, we had to refill our own several times. Our server didn't bring plates for our appetizer so I had to get up to get some. By the time we had plates, our food was cold. Extremely disappointed with the experience, especially for the price.

Made reservations to avoid the wait but still ended up waiting for our table. The hostess didn't seem very organized or happy to see us. Our waiter, Brandon, was great though. Very friendly and very helpful. The food was very good as well. We'll be back.

When Maggiano's called to confirm the reservation I requested a large table in one of their banquet rooms and was told that they would accommodate us. Upon arrival one of the hostesses, despite my objection, tried to squeeze us into a smaller table. When the second hostess took us to the table she realized it wouldn't work out well and honored their original commitment.

We were seated promptly at our reservation time and our server was excellent. The food was amazing and everyone enjoyed the dish they ordered. The take one home was such a treat a few days later and reminded us again what a fine evening we enjoyed. The birthday dessert was such a nice surprise and added the finishing touch to our perfect evening. We can't wait for a return visit.

It was a real treat for Father's Day......a day early. Had a 5:30 reservation, otherwise would have had a long wait. But that was OK, as we don't like to eat a heavy meal late at night. Our waiter, Evan, was superb....which made it all the better.

Waiter seemed angry and we felt when we asked for something ee were annoying to him. My sister asked for a salad and it took forever. But food was good

Typical chain dining. My daughter requested this place, otherwise I avoid, but it was better than last visit thank goodness.

This was not my first visit to Maggiano's and certainly will not be my last. The wait staff are always very nice and may I add patient with large parties that have no idea what they want.. The drinks are great and the food is as well. I would recommend the long island tea and the lasagna.

Loved the experience! Food was delicious! Love the "extra take home " meals as well. Service was stellar. We will return.
11 in our group
The family style menu has something for everyone. One of our favorites was missing and the chicken piccata wasn't as well seasoned as I would have liked but the chopped salad was perfect. Creme brulee and lemon cookies were lovely.
Over the top
Our meal was awesome! Great value. I also had a Bellini - no words can describe it - had to have a second one as it was over the top fantastic!
Terrible service ruined our celebration
Service on our last few visits had not been up to par, but this visit was a total disaster. We went to celebrate our anniversary and the occasion was ruined. From having to wait 10 minutes for our drinks at the bar (they arrived just as we were called to our table) to the terrible service we received, this was anything but a celebration. My husband asked for an extra spoon for his soup, which arrived 10 min. after he finished it. The server forgot about our salads, until we reminded him, and they arrived without dressing. We waited 45 min. for our entree. The server, the few times he came to the table, kept using the excuse that he was swamped (the restaurant was no busier than other Fri. nights we had been there) and was doing the best he could. Then he was obviously annoyed when we complained to the manager. We once regularly visited here about once a month but this was definitely our last visit.
Good for any group or occasion.
Maggiano's Little Italy is good for any group or occasion. Servers Aaron and Christin were excellent. Food is always dependable too.
Paid way too much for a meal the quality of Olive Garden. Caesar salad was drowning in dressing. The chicken parm was very disappointing, marinara was bland as plain tomato sauce and the pasta was overcooked. Eggplant parm was mushy. Tables were crowded, place was noisy. Won't be back.

Great place to eat....Good food!Good value...Will visit again soon.......
Excellent Dining Experience
Had dinner with some friends from out-of-town and they, being lovers of Italian food, were well-pleased with our dining experience. Our waiter was attentive and excellent, explaining that all of the food was made "from scratch". And, the chef stopped by our table to say, "Hello" and to offer to accommodate any special requests we might have. The portions are very generous, and the food itself is excellent - hot, fresh, and very tasty. The option of a "Take Home" entree with certain selections makes for an excellent value.
Anytime we've ever eaten here it has been good
Any time we've ever eaten at Maggiano's the food and service has always been great. Everybody is always very happy with it. So we always keep it in mind, especially when we have a large group, the wait staff is great there, and they even will make the occasion special, like they brought a dessert for the person we were celebrating..................nice touch!
Could have been more attentive

The food is mediocre and over priced for the quality. Service was horrible. Had to ask multiple times for various things. We ordered two salads. One came out and the other one we had to ask for again and by the time the server brought it, the food had arrived. The server asked if we wanted balsamic in our oil for the bread we had to ask for, then never brought it. My sons meal came with ice cream and we had to ask twice for her to bring that as well. This went on all night. I could have gotten past that if the food was spectacular but we were extremely disappointed. We will not recommend or return.

Maggianos has become my go to for date night. The service was fast, convenient and delicious. The price was very reasonable and the casual dress code was fitting for our occasion. Thanks Maggianos!!!

Everything!!! For starters the service & I mean every single person that we cane in contact with. The Executive Chef even visited our table and brought complimentary fried artichokes and said she heard it was our 1st time there. then the food was amazing! The STRAWBERRY cheescake Ohmygoodness! Just get in your car and go like now! :)
Reserving a table is a mute point if when you get there you'll just be given a buzzer and have to wait like everyone else who did not have reservations.

Our reservation was rather a disappointment. 1) As the reservation was ordered through the page with the $10 discount, that information was not transferred to our bill. Correcting took quite a long time. 2) our seating was back at the dinnerware/water area so was brisk with people. Server did not seem too interested in us based on our order. The chicken tasted like it had been frozen a long timel.

We had a lovely evening. We were seated at a great private table and had a very good waiter, the food was wonderful and plentiful . We were 2 families from all over the country and we all found something to love. Thank you! we are going to keep Maggione's on the Special Event list.

The service was excellent. I was so impressed with the attention they provided. Seems everyone, from Asst. General Manager, to Lead server to my personal server knew about our order. The food is always delicious and prices are reasonable. One of my favorite places.
