Visiting our son in Boston we were looking for a mid priced Italian restaurant in Downtown. Maggianno's location and menu were perfect, and our experience was great! Service was wonderful, including a visit from the kitchen to confirm that our chosen dishes were fine regarding our nut allergies. The portions were hearty, and we left happy. The shrimp scampi was delicious and had tons of perfectly cooked shrimp. The chicken parm was very good and my husbands steak was cooked to perfection. We did not get dessert, but at the end of the meal we were presented with some yummy lemon cookies (for those with the nut allergies) and chocolate balls that were very tasty. All in all a great dinner and we would definitely go back again!

Love this place. They have excellent waitstaff and treat you well. Their food is always delicious. It can get very busy, especially on Friday/Saturday nights, so best to make a reservation... easy on their website /open table. Usually go as a group and always have fun. Mushroom ravioli, lasagne, Rigatoni 'D' are favorites. Artichoke dip is yummy!

Came here on a busy Saturday night and were seated within a few minutes of our reservation time. Waiter (Chris) was fantastic. Clearly very knowledgeable and not shy about letting you know wish dishes and drinks are his favorites. All of our food was delicious! Ordering a shared appetizer, an entree each, and shared dessert left us both with enough food leftover for lunch on Sunday. While some of the dishes get a little pricey, they are well worth it. Also, a pitcher of the sangria was a fabulous value! The restaurant was a little loud since it is such a large, open space, so it may be difficult for those who are hard of hearing. The only real negative I can speak to was the fact that the manager(?) seemed visibly frustrated and short-tempered. It was clear that the restaurant was busy and there were many people waiting to be seated, but there was no reason for him to be throwing silverware onto a table in an attempt to 'assist' servers in setting. Furthermore, his clear chastising of an employee in the middle of the room was distasteful. While this was not enough to deter me from future visits, it was slightly offputting. Overall, Magiannos is a fantastic establishment and I look forward to dining here again!

This is my favorite restaurant in Boston. I live on the North Shore but happily drive into the city to eat at this restaurant. The food is absolutely fantastic. Their 4 cheese ravioli with pesto sauce is out of this world. They give you huge portions since it's a family style restaurant so you and your party can choose a few different menu items and sample each one. The wine menu is equally fantastic. The service is always friendly and the service quick. If you plan on going on the weekend be sure to MAKE A RESERVATION. It's an extremely popular restaurant and if you don't make a reservation, you'll end up waiting for 3 hours. \n\nOn a side note, my friend had a food allergy (dairy) that she told our waiter. He gave her some food options that didn't contain dairy that she may like. Then his manager came over to go over the menu and what items were dairy free and which weren't. When he wasn't sure about one item, he went and asked the chefs and came back to relay the message. A++++++ service.

Delicious rich Italian food as always at Maggiano's. Mr friends and I come here few weeks for when we want some delicious, rich comfort food. Portions are large, sauces are rich, service has always been good. Only problem is you need to make reservations for a friday or saturday night... We love the zuccini fritters and spinach & artichoke dip.

We were very disappointed to have to wait 20+ minutes despite having made a reservation. In fact, we were 20 minutes early as it did not take as long to walk over from the show we saw as we anticipated it would...so although this is not the restaurant's fault, we really waited 40 minutes for our table. When we did get our table, we were in a corner spot with high-traffic and an uneven floor....my chair dipped down and then up every time a server walked by, which was about once every minute. The bar was extremely backed up and I did not get my cocktail until our food was served. This restaurant has been around long enough to better manage a busy Saturday night. The hostess should have told us when we checked in that they were behind and we would have to wait - we would have found a more comfortable spot and gotten a drink to make it more pleasant. No one should be seated at the table we had, period. There is too much traffic and the floor needs to be fixed.

We were there for a Sunday (family) lunch. Great restaurant with some really interesting offerings. There is clearly extra-ordinary attention paid to providing high quality, fresh offerings. The chef came to a table next to our to discuss the gluten free options and he was very friendly, thoughtful and clearly proud of his work. We got the fried zucchini and it was excellent, as was the spinach salad. The pasta we got was too much for us- too heavy- but likely well matched for other tastes who might like meatier sauces. Excellent service and friendly ambiance. We would gladly go again and trust that anything ordered would be worth a taste.

Great restaurant! We had reservations for 4:45pm for a show at 7:00pm on a Saturday 2/12. Very attentive service even though restaurant was extremely busy. Food was brought out very quickly, we were not rushed at all. Food ranged from an eight to a ten depending upon selection, (ie: fried mozzarella is not my favorite). The Fried zucchini with aioli sauce was outrageously good, three out of four guests at our table gave it a ten! The entrees were equally well received. Other than alcoholic drinks, this restaurant is an exceptional value. Our favorite Italian restaurant in Boston!

Had a very enjoyable at Maggiano's with my two sisters and my Mom. We took my Mom as her Christmas gift to the theater and dinner. She is in a wheelchair and they were extremely accommodating from the patience of the valet to the waiter. We were late to our reservation due to the weather and transporting someone in a wheelchair around Boston. Maggiano's was very pleasant about holding our table. The food and wine were delicious.

This was our second time here and the experience, which was delightful last time, was quite different this time. It was the night before a predicted heavy snowstorm when the streets of Boston, and Maggiano's were virtually empty. With a lack of customers instead of giving the few that they had extra good service, the whole place had an overly casual vibe on the part of both the front desk and waitstaff and numerous missteps and misunderstandings with our waiter. It was all simple dumb stuff like his walking off without taking my drink order after my husband said he was good with water, his utter confusion when we tried to place our food order, being stuck without silverwear to eat when my meal came, (we couldn't find him because he picked that moment to remove and refill all the condiments on his tables, leaving us without those as well.) There was nothing major; it was all just odd and difficult. \n\n To top it off, I really didn't like the salmon salad because the red onion (which I usually like) was way over the top. The bruschettas were good as was the chicken marsala.\n\nWe'll probably go back because the service and food were so good the first time we were there and it is close to our apartment, but we'll pick a busier night perhaps.

Stopped in before going to the theatre. Good quality Italian fare, generous portions and excellent value. Good/professional service. Comfortable ambience... (a little tight, but fine.) We arrived on the early side 6pm, so still some families with younger kids, etc. All in all, a solid experience, perfect for a 'nicer' pre-theatre dinner. Maybe look for something a little quieter if you're hoping for quiet conversation/romantic dinner.

I had the special Nonna's pound cake, I think it was. Best dessert I ever had - seriously. It came with vanilla ice cream and caramelized fresh bananas. If they have it on the menu when you go, it is a must try.

I want to do a special shout-out to Tom, our waiter on Friday, January 20. Friendly, efficient, warmly welcoming and excellent in every respect. Completely charming and extremely helpful. In a place as big as Maggiano's, it's easy for things to feel impersonal and machine-like. Tom changes that into the sort of personal interaction you get at a much more intimate place, and makes you want to come back. Not showy, just excellent at what he does.

I was in Boston with my daughter and her boyfriend and Maggiano's was recommended. We had a reservation and were seated when we arrived, about 15 minutes early. The waitress was very friendly and introduced herself, the other waiter who was covering our section and the name of the chef for our section. During her intro she asked if there were any food allergies. My daughter's boyfriend has an (epi-pen) allergy to all seafood and the waitress made recommendations of what not to order which was extremely knowledgeable and helpful on her part. She did mention that some of the seafood is fried in the same oil as some of the other entrees (possibly the chicken parm? I was half listening to that part since it did not pertain to my meal and I was chatting). She said she would let the chef know. The chef also visited our table and reassured us that there would be no cross contamination in the kitchen and even the pasta water would be changed prior to preparing our meal. I had never dined with someone with a severe food allergy prior to this night so I am not sure if this is standard, however, I found this to be exceptional service!\nThe food was amazing! I ordered the linguini and white clam sauce. The linguini was al dente and the clams were tender. So many times I have had rubbery clams but these were perfect. I will definitely visit again. Hopefully soon. The sangria was also excellent. It was not too sweet as some often are.

Our large group ordered family-style, as they recommend for large groups, and despite having some vegetarians and food allergies, were able to get dishes which satisfied everyone. We had more than enough food, and with the ability to serve yourself, generally avoided the problem overly large individual portions. The food was great, and the service was helpful and prompt.

Went to maggiano's for a pre-Blue Man Group dinner with a group of 7 (several teenagers). We ordered family style. The quantity of food was extensive and there was something for everyone. The passing around of the different entrees and pastas was fun and informal, and allowed us all to have a taste of several dishes. Our server was great, and all of the items we ordered were delicious. I highly recommend getting a tin of the lemon cookies to bring home - perfect combination of light, tart and sweet after a heavy pasta meal. We had a party here several years ago in the private rooms downstairs and it was lovely - glad that the place has maintained its quality and level of service. Great for a family dinner or friends get together, but not a place to go for a quiet night! For our needs, it was perfect.

We have eaten here before and it has always been a great place after a family day in downtown Boston (theater, museum, shopping, etc). Great 'old Italian restaurant' feel - even if it is little contrived. Good menu, excellent/warm service, etc. The one draw back was that the lady's restroom was beyond filthy - someone had recently vomited in a stall, the floor was covered in trash, and the room was generally unusable. It took at least 30 minutes for it even to be addressed but was never fully cleaned in the 2 hours we were there. Very disappointing part of a otherwise fine restaurant.

Fortunately a couple of people in our party didn't make it, otherwise the servers for the table next to us would not have been able to access those diners at all. \nI also expected that there would have been something Italian Easter related for the day since they make such a point of the Italian experience..but nothing.\nGo there for a birthday, pre theater or family dinner but my advice is to skip any holiday dinner.

Can't fault the food and wine. All of our party had pasta dishes and the meals were delicious. However the service could have been better (may just be because it was a busy Saturday night). One of our guests had a cracked plate and the waiter who brought out our entrees tried to serve them without clearing away our appetiser plates. The restaurant had a lively atmosphere and was full of families. I'd recommend it.

We went to Maggiano's on Saturday for a family birthday. Our reservations were for 7:15 and they seated us immediately. Our waitress was very attentive but not overbearing - Overall, excellent service. The food was fantastic and they did a great job with the presentation of a birthday piece of chocolate cake. Very nice touch. Some of the dinners that were ordered were the c\nChicken Parmesan, Shrimp Fra Diavolo, Tuscan Chicken and Shrimp, and Shrimp Scampi. All were excellent!

I have been to this restaurant many times. This must have been a very off night for them. My reservation was for 5:30. We arrived at 5:15 and were told we would be called once our table was ready. 30Minutes went by and we had not been called. I was standing right near the reservation area and a 2 party came in and said they have reservations at 545pm. (they were telling walk in's ..reservations only until 9:15..that is how close I was) they then called them. At that point I went back and asked about our reservation and was told the matre d skipped over me but we would be called next. that did happen. We were then seated and it took forever to have our server come take our drink order. after 10 minutes of not getting our drinks I started to look around for our server and here she came with the drinks. we ordered our food and unfortunately it came our luke warm. Overall not a good night but the first time I have had a bad experience. this will not keep me away because I do love this restaurant.

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving lunch at Maggiano's -Boston. The environment was very nice and warm, service was great! The food on the Thanksgiving menu was overall amazing but a little too much for two people (should be good for four we thought). The only part we were not 100% happy was the deserts were not as good as the other Maggiano's we went to in Cincinnati and Chicago - the tiramisu had little cheese chunks not well blended...I guess the place was crazily busy during the holiday.

Honestly, this place looks over-the-top and extravagant, but the food doesn't live up to the hype.

I came in on the day before Valentine's Day since it was all booked. That was okay, I booked too late anyway. First off, I was super late for my reservation due to traffic and traveling from the south shore but my goodness! the hostess was so nice and told me it was not a problem at all, that she would be sure the reservation was not cancelled. My date got there first and checked in. I wanted a booth, something not right in the middle (Picky for someone who's already late huh?). I got EXACTLY that: a nice sized booth right around the corner from the host stand. Our waitress, who's name I forgot (I'm so sorry), but I will do my best to describe; long brown hair , it was in a low ponytail/ messy bun, average height, very pleasant, and not pushy at all, and didn't rush us! timing from drinks, to dinner, to dessert was PERFECT. Our meals were delicious. He got Chicken Parmesan, which he said is the best he's had, and I got the clams and Linguine in a white sauce. Overall, it was perfect and the staff was very accommodating. Oh and the gentleman in the bow tie was hilarious and so friendly and welcoming! I couldn't tell if he was a host or a manager helping out BUT he's awesome either way!

This is a large restaurant that can easily accommodate large parties. There were 10 of us for lunch, the service was excellent, and the menu was varied but not one of those overwhelming multi page menus with a mash-up of cuisines. This was Italian focused, but also had salads, sandwiches and soups. Menu offered a welcome 'pick two' combination with choice of two: salads, soups and half sandwiches. The salad was much larger than expected, very fresh greens and veggies, and nicely dressed; I selected half sandwich of honey mustard salmon which contained a nicely cooked salmon filet with very crisp bacon on a fresh roll. \n\nWould not recommend for an intimate dinner for 2, but excellent if you are meeting friends or family for lunch or dinner. Also, kid friendly with crayons and worksheet and a childrens menu.

Our party of 4 was about 10 minutes late for a 4:30 Sunday reservation after a theatre matinee and we were seated promptly and courteously The restaurant is large and somewhat busy for that time of day. Our waiter was friendly and attentive, but he had at least two larger groups among his other tables which may have contributed to a number of brief delays in service throughout our lengthy dining experience. No problem however, as we were in no hurry and always enjoy an extended stay at the table. The wine list is not real extensive, but we all found glasses that we enjoy at a reasonable price. The mussels and chopped salad were delicious appetizers. I took the waiter's suggestion of the veal marsala and it was very good. A lobster ravioli special was also deemed very good. The double chocolate brownie was a tasty dessert shared by all. The portion sizes were slightly above average, but the volume of the after dinner cordials was not. Maggiano's present themselves as a high end chain and I guess I'd agree - very good, but not outstanding.

Spaghetti & meatballs, chicken parm and veal piccata all good choices. The chocolate cake with the sambuka mouse , according to the chocoholics at the table, was very good. I tried the carrot cake, very flavorful but a bit dry. We never had to wait long for drink refills or 'seconds' on any of our courses.

The food was ok and the service very good. But, and I am not sure how to say this nicely, but someone needs to tell them: At least two members of the restaurant staff (servers, waiters) were probably homeless. That is, they had not bathed in at least a week, and every time they passed our table, even 6 feet away, the stench was strong enough to overwhelm any sense of flavor from the food. I don't know if they don't pay the staff well enough, or what, but I think the restaurant needs to deal with this problem. Unless I knew definitively that the restaurant had successfully dealt with the problem, I would not return nor recommend the place to others.

Our family dined here to celebrate our son's birthday. I made a reservation and were seated at a window seat, which was nice. Family style dining suited us and the food tasted scrumptious; very plentiful also. Efficient and friendly service, as well as validated parking ($10) made our celebration special. The bill with tip was $173 for 4 people so it's not something we'd do often but the price tag suited this special occasion.

Maggiano's is a predictable 1950's Italian dining experience...from the red-checkered table cloths under the white ones on the table to the bright red of the marinara sauce. The veal parm was delicious, with three large veal medallions under a plush carpet of creamy parm and tasty red sauce. My dining partner had a sausage and pepper dish that had a light sauce that cried out to be sopped up by the crusty Italian bread. Salads, served first, were bright and fresh, coated in pleasant dressings. The delectable desserts are served maxi and mini to accommodate all size stomachs which are stretched by the volume of food served. Nonetheless, the bill is not large, compared to the downtown competitors. It's not molecular cuisine, but you know what you're getting, it's delicious and its relatively inexpensive! It's really great for before theater dinner or a night out with a large group that can eat the same food family style and save even more!

Very noisy and a bit too crowded, but we like the atmosphere and we've always been happy with our food. If they could just make the main dining area a little less crowded, it would be wonderful. I know more people bring in more money, but the space can be extremely crowded. Sometimes I feel like I'm dining with other people because we're so close. The menu is varied which is great. No music this time, I like the Frank Sinatra. I wish people dressed up a little more, but there's nothing Maggianos can do about that. Men wearing hats and people in shorts, t-shirts and sneakers...yuk. All-in-all we'll keep going. We had our mom's 75th birthday there, our daughter's engagement and we go for special occasions, the most recent being our anniversary.

We have eaten at this location previously but on this visit we were very dissapointed with both the service and food quality. \nThe food was served basically luke warm in temperature even though it wasn't busy. There's nothing less appetizing than luke warm pasta as far as taste and texture.\nOur server was also very slow and not very attentive as we had to ask for basic things like enough menus for our party, bread & butter and basic 'check-ins' about our food quality.\nwe couldn't believe that the dessert menu didn't include an Italian pastry 'staple' Cannoli's and when we asked the server informed us that 'corporate' decides the items and because they don;t sell well in other market locations they are not a regular feature on the menu! Corporate should re-evaluate these type of decisions and at least offer items such as this in markets where they are a staple on every other chain and independent Italian eatery in Boston.

Last time I went there 15 years ago it was great. This time, I ordered balsamic glazed salmon with asparagus and the salmon, which had no glaze whatsoever, was like cardboard - obviously previously frozen, tasteless, and tough in texture. The asparagus were only half cooked so I sent the whole thing back and they redid it, this time the salmon was of better quality and had glaze on it but nothing special. I tried both my husband's (veal scallopini) and my daughter's (eggplant parm) dishes and they were a little above meh. Side dish was plain spaghetti - mine was hard in some places and had grated parm and my husband's didn't - which led me to believe that it came off someone else's plate who didn't eat it. Not worth the trip in Boston.

(I bought a pitcher of the margaritas and even when adding soda water to dilute the sugary syrup-like taste, it was still horrible.)\n\nI'd go back, as it's a great restaurant close to the Theater District in Boston, but I'd stick to the family style menu and I'd AVOID the peach margaritas at all costs!

Mozzarella Marinara is thick deliciousness! Crisp and yummy salads! Best Chicken Parm. Must save room for the Vanilla Bean Profiteroles, worth it!

The food was great, however there were hiccups with the experience. Both bathrooms with flooded and you couldn't use them for some time. Lines of people were waiting. Second, we had a 8:15 reservation. We got into town early at 6:30 and decided to see if we could get in early. The lady at the desk said no problem and it would be a couple minutes. 30 minutes later we checked in to see the status and she said I will check on it and get back to you downstairs. After an hour and 15 minutes at 7:45 I checked in again and she sorry we can't seat you early. So we had to wait until 8:15 an hour and 45 minutes after arrival. When I asked to be seated early I said it was no big deal if we couldn't, but she said it would be fine. At the very least she could have told us that wasn't the case so we could of at least walked around the town and found something else to do instead of sitting there for almost 2 hours. Not the best experience, but the food was good.

Ate our dinner here before our show. Traffic was so awful so knowing we were going to be late I called and they said no problem they would hold our table. We were 25 minutes late and got a table and service right away. Telling our waiter that we had a show at 7:30 he rushed everything for us. We both got the lighter fare and loved it. Got veal and chicken masala with the fettuccini. We were very happy with our meal and will for sure return.

We celebrated my husband's birthday with family on Sunday at Maggiano's in Boston after attending a play nearby, We had never been there, but were impressed with the generous portions of delicious food and the Vintage-Italy atmosphere. What really impressed me though, when I explained I had a food allergy, the waitress brought the manager, Anthony Romeo, to the table. After explaining that they take food allergies very seriously, he was very attentive and asked all the right questions to be sure I was served only items that were made with ingredients that I could safely eat. This has never happened to me at any other restaurant I've been to and it made me feel secure that I was eating only food that would not harm me. The wait staff was also excellent and even the Chef made an appearance at our table. We felt well-taken care of and enjoyed our dinner very much. Kudos to you Anthony and your staff.

When it came time to pay the bill we wanted to split half cash and half on card. Our server put the entire bill on our card and thought the $70 was his tip. He attempted to decline the purchase on our credit card which resulted in locking the credit card until the next day when we could go to the bank in person and explain what happened while on vacation.

Maggiano's is my favorite restaurant...I was a little surprised to see that the prices have gone up and my favorite dessert is gone though...I thought that the portions were a bit smaller than usual as well...I would expect that if the portions are going to be smaller, the prices should have stayed the same, or raise the prices and leave the portions as they were... The food is still exceptional, but it is not as affordable to go out as a family as it used to be, and unfortunately, that will effect how often we will be able to go there as a family moving forward...WIll still considerate it as a 'date night' destination...

We have dined at Maggiano's many times and always have a positive experience at this location. We were celebrating our son-in-laws 50th birthday on this occasion so there were 6 of us. Service was perfect, as it usually is. Food was excellent, with the exception of my wife's filet mignon. It was cooked the way she ordered it, which was medium (pink inside), but it was not very tender as filet mignon usually is. I tried it and felt she should have sent it back, but she didn't want to cause a disruption with everyone else at the table plus she didn't want to wait for a new order to be made. She ate half of it and left the rest. All of the other entrees were just fine, as were the appetizers. We ordered the mini dessert selection of 5 mini desserts and everyone had fun sampling them. All very delicious and since they were small no one felt stuffed afterwards. All in all, we had a very enjoyable meal and look forward to returning in the future.

We were seated pretty quickly after we had arrive and the hostess told us the name of our server which was nice to know before hand. The server, Diego was great and very welcoming and suggested the special Sangria which was absolutely divine, it looked like a very light pink lemonade but tasted like a rose sangria with citrus medley of fruits. \n\nFor appetizers we had the mussels that were steamed in a spicy tomato sauce. The hints of spice were at a perfect level, the mussels were cleaned very well, and all of the mussels were open. \n\nThough we actually did not get to finish all of our dinner the Veal Marsala was exquisite and the Veal Parmesan was passable. The only thing to note about the parmesan was that the crust was a little soggy and probably was left out a little longer in the sauce before arrive. The mushrooms on the Veal Marsala were perfect and the lighter version of the dish that the menu provided as an alternative was perfect. In terms of presentation, there wasn't anything phenomenal. \n\nWe stopped eating so that we could enjoy dessert, which was a trio if creme brulee, a honey, a chocolate, and a traditional. The traditional was a little bit more liquidly than I liked, the chocolate though had a really good not two sweet almost dark chocolate bitter taste was complemented well with the torched sugar but had an odd consistency to it. The honey one was by far the best and almost tasted like honey caramel but had the best texture and taste.

I have worked in Boston for over 20 years and have gone to Maggiano's a hand full of times. Having a wonderful time usually. This time, however, I was very disappointed. Our waiter was very nice but extremely slow and not attentive to our group of 6. We were in the city to enjoy a girls' day out at a musical and dinner (it was also for a birthday). I recommended Maggiano's to the group and made the reservation a month prior. It was a busy day granted, but I normally have a better time at Maggiano's. We sat for about 10 minutes before even being asked if we wanted anything to drink. The bread came and there were no plates on the table and it took awhile to get someone's attention to bring plates. The food was delicious when it came, but there was really no follow through, ie coffee, dessert. Thank you for your time.

No discount or offer for dessert or any thing else was made. Considering I was dining with my family with kids, having me finish after they did and having my young children wait for me to finish was less than ideal. I am not sure that we would go back...

I've been to Maggiano's quite a few times, mostly with groups though. This was the second time I went there as just two people. First time, it was not busy so the waiter was much more engaged and helpful. This time, it was quite more crowded. We had two big tables near us and the main floor was filled with larger groups. Our waiters changed half way through the meal, likely because they realized no one was serving us. The waiters for the group was almost always there with them while we saw our waiter(s) only for the bill, to bring the food, and take our order. Took 15 minutes from getting the bill to them coming back to take it. So in all, service was unfortunately sad, likely because they are more concerned on the groups, where they make their money. And no water refills! Really!?\n\nAs for food, it was really good, as usual. Sangria tasted watered down though. More like orange juice than a sangria to be honest. \n\nOverall, meal was good but service was lacking. Please give couples equal service, please!

I've dined at Maggiano's maybe 10 times in all, and almost always have a great time. Just ran into some bad luck/possibly poor planning this time around. It was a busy night, but still worth mentioning that our booth had food on the seats(spilled pasta and cheese) that we thankfully saw before sitting on. Ordered 2 starters, mozzarella and the spinach dip, both were less than hot when we got them. We sent the mozzarella back because it was basically cold, they sent another, almost as cold, so we just said nevermind. (our server explained that the sometimes other servers would grab someone else's mozzarella that was waiting, and that orders didn't get sent out in the order they were placed, resulting in cold food being sent, and was very apologetic, but how is someone not watching which server takes what food at such a large, established place?) My girlfriend ordered lasagna...and we were told a few minutes later that they had run out of lasagna. 9pm on a Friday night and you're out of lasagna at possibly the biggest Italian restaurant in the city.... how does that happen, but I guess it's possible? All in all one of our entrees as well as one of our apps was taken off the bill, and the server herself was excellent, just didn't have the support in the kitchen that she needed. Overall, my food was good, my girlfriend got spaghetti and meatballs instead of lasagna, which was fine. We'd probably come back, just hopefully on a better night.

High volume traffic so service can sometimes seem rushed but if you let your server know you are in no hurry they will slow the pace with no problems. We went in without reservations and were told there would be a 45 minute wait - even though we noticed many vacant tables.

Out for dinner before taking the kids to see a musical. Our eldest son (age 9) has life threatening allergies to peanuts and tree nuts. We were satisfied but not impressed with the way that was handled. Our server's knowledge of the allergen policy was not up to par but he did get a sous-chef t come talk to us, which made us feel a bit better. Our server was forgetful and not very personable, so we were not impressed with that, either. We were over-charged for one menu item while another was completely left off (and quickly added back on) and rather than simply apologizing, the server made several excuses which is just annoying. The food was delicious and that was certainly the highlight for us. We won't be tripping over ourselves to come back but we did enjoy the food.

The table, a four top was in the middle of the floor on an aisle. The chairs slid around on the hardwood. I would of asked to move, but my friends didn't want to ask the server to do that since they had already ordered drinks. Our entrees & app came out at the same time; annoying. Then another server came over and asked to take our fourth chair because 'there are no other chairs in the restaurant.'

I have been to this restaurant many times in the past, at least once or twice a year. Typically, the food and service are good and it's been a great place to bring out-of-town guests. \n\nThis past Monday, we had a party of 8 (4 adults, 2 children, and 2 teenagers). The service was very slow, and my dinner (glazed salmon with asparagus) was not enjoyable. The asparagus was tasteless and the salmon was so dry it was difficult to swallow. We ordered a bottle of wine for the 4 adults to drink with dinner, but the meal arrived so late, we had already finished the wine. I then ordered a glass of wine for myself to drink with my meal, but the wine never arrived. \n\nMonday's experience was a-typical and I hope that this was just a one-time experience.

Was disappointed in the Maggiano's experience this time. Have been several other times for family style dining. Each time, it seems as though the concept becomes less and less as they take more options away. Also, for seven people, they would bring out one dish of each thing. It barely would go around the table with everyone getting only a little bit and you'd have to ask for more. Before they would bring out two plates of every item to start with and then come back to see if you wanted more. Waiter was very nice, but maybe overwhelmed because he wouldn't come back right away, so we were constantly waiting for additional food to come. They ran out of menu items, and when dessert finally came, they were out of three of them; two of which we wanted. We loved going there before because it was a good value with lots of options and choices, but at this point, we'll pick another place for our get togethers. Food is decent Italian, but for around the same amount of money, we could do better in the North End. It's definitely not the same experience as it has been in the past. Also, because we were always waiting for additional food, with the waiter not coming back promptly, we were 15 minutes over the time limit for the validation on the parking, too....

I took my children to Maggiano's for a special night out. \n\nFirst of all - we went back in August 2015 and had a fantastic experience - 5 star visit, we were excited to return. \n\nOur server this visit was nice, but younger and seemed a bit overwhelmed. It took quite a bit of time for simple things like water refills, etc. Also, we were never even offered fresh parmesan for our meal, which was disappointing. The biggest issue was that I ordered a dish gluten free - because I have Celiac. My food came out, after 1 bite, I doubted it was actually gluten free. I found the server and asked him - he apologized, they had brought me the wrong dish. Having Celiac, I am very sensitive to gluten and did end up getting sick while at the restaurant. My GF dish came out about 10 minutes later - after my children had finished most of their meals. The server did not charge me for my meal, or for the dessert that my children shared. \n\nI am grateful the restaurant offers so many gluten free options, but they need to be more cautious.

My favorite restaurant in Boston! I make sure to stop in every time we're in the area. Highly recommend it! Delicious food and great service! The best Italian I've ever had :) There was a large party next to us, to the noise was louder than previous visits, but that was okay!

We have eaten at at least 6 or 7 Maggianos on the From Midwest to East coast. The Consistency of the experience is perfect. You think you went to the same Restaurant each and every time.\nThe Ambience and the wait staff personalities down to a science. The Food is consistent in appearance and flavor at every restaurant. Delicious

I find it impossible that a chain restaurant can produce such exquisite quality. Stunning.\nIf you were to open several other places with less noise, all the better. I am willing to go\nSunday early day to avoid the crowds.

Maggiano's was picked by my two granddaughters who had eaten there before. They took their mother, younger sister and me out to dinner. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. The salad was like no other salad I ever tasted. When I reserved the table, I added that two people in our group have very bad sea food allergies. The Chief came out to speak with us and said that he could prepare their food in a separate pan instead of the grill. We really appreciated that he took the time to meet us and to explain what he would to accommodate our requests.

I just went for my first time for my law school graduation. I highly suggest the family style plating. You get so much food for your buck, and you can always ask for refills. I cannot wait to go back. The only complaint I had (which is NOT the restaurant's fault) was the fire alarms went off for the first 45 minutes to a hour of our dining.

I made a reservation online On Table and received a verification online. I decide to call to verify the res. and the receptionist said there was no res. listed. I will probably not use the on line reservation method again. I will call to speak to someone. Our waiter was nice. I would certainly refer all I know to eat at Maggiano's.

Seated right away ( had reservation) which was nice. Booth on the side was great. Noisy but manageable in the restaurant. Waitress terrible. Never smiled, barely spoke and looked like she could bite someone at any minute. Meal was good. Received incorrect salad and waited for replacement. Overall good, except for waitress

We went for dinner to celebrate the birthdays of my son (age 14) and both my parents (ages 86 and 88). We all enjoyed the food, ranging from lasagna and ravioli to delmonico steak. The waiter was friendly and accommodating. The only complaint we had was that we were seated right in the middle of the room, which was quite crowded, so the noise level was awful - especially from my parents' perspective. On our previous visit, we were seated at a booth off to the side, so the noise was not as bothersome. The kids love it there, however, so we will almost certainly be back!

The fat italian guys in tuxedos that are managers or whatever here walk you to your table and it feels authentic (whatever that means). Don't order anything on the menu that says 'lighter side' you will be disappointed. You signed up for Italian food so eat like a fat idiot like you planned when you made the reservation. Going into healthy calorie counter mode and ordering one of these dishes will just lead to an ultimate disappointment. Especially when your friends get monster dishes and stuff their faces with smiles as you pick away like a bird to save 500 calories. The bread is pretty bomb too. \n\nI get the seafood frutti di mare ciopinno zuppa de pesce thing every time and replace the tomato broth with scampi sauce. The north end sucks and this place is the best alternative. I am from CT and the Italian food in New Haven is 1000 times better then Boston. If you are in New Haven go to LUCE or PORTOFINOS. \n\nThe Apple Crostada dessert will change your life. You will leave there a new person. I made my girlfriend eat there with me 2 nights in a row last year. The entrees are great but I kind of go on cruise control when I eat them and then really step on the gas when its time for the Apple Crostada. I took a year off and finally convinced my girlfriend to go back last weekend and it was just as I remembered. Perfection.

They were extremely busy for Mother's Day they kept forgetting to bring things to the table. When meals came the sides didn't show up until we had to remind the waiter by that time we were pretty much done. They did give us a free piece of cake for the issue but it was horrible we took one bite each and that was that.

We made reservations via Open Table while in San Francisco pending our visit to Boston to celebrate our daughters college graduation. They confirmed with us two days before regarding the size of the group, as well as the time of the reservation. We needed to change the size of the attending party and Maggiano's was more than accommodating. Service was excellent. They never left us wanting for anything. Our waitress was 'involved' with our table and knew when to be present and when to let us have our space for discussion, eating, drinking, etc. Absolutely no complaints on our end. The experience was what we were told it was going to be!

Great spot. I reserved for Mothers Day for a party of 12. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We all ordered fried zucchini (the dipping sauce is amazing), calamari (great and not over done), Caesar salads (the sides were huge) for starters. For meals, we probably should have done the family style since it would have been less expensive and we could have had a variety, but we did a la carte instead. We had ravioli, chicken parm (very tender and I recommend the flat noodles instead of the spaghetti), eggplant parm, shrimp etc. Everything was great. I would definitely recommend. Book in advance for groups because they fill up fast.

Most everything was exceptional for our post-theater Mother's Day supper. The Tuscan soup isn't as good as the Tomato one, but the sausage and peppers app? You could drown in that sauce and be happy! The shrimp scampi and the Tuscan shrimp and chicken? Incredible! The wife loved the Berry Tiramisu, and how can I complain about a dessert the size of your head with the Zuccotto Cake? Molto buono!

We had reservations for 10:30 but the ballet we attended let out early so we walked over and they seated us right away. The food was excellent. Even the simple Zucchini app. was to die for. The wait staff was attentive but not overbearing; knowledgeable and had great suggestions. I would recommend this place for a 'safe bet' when you need to impress. They have never let me down.
