Great atmosphere, good food, nice waiters! I wouldn't necessarily call it real Italian food though, it's americanized a lot! Not that it's a bad thing, but don't expect to have true, real Italian food as you could have in the country! Anyway, love this place a lot! More...

I have always enjoyed the food and drinks at this location which has been top notch although it is rather noisy and very busy and sometimes you'll have a long wait but it's not as bad as if you can get a seat at the bar that it won't be too long and something really enjoyable is the meals that you can take home with you which they'll bring to your table as you're ready to leave.

Amazing dinner as always and for a large group of 14!  Excellent service for beverages and the food all came out hot and delicious!!!  Sound levels were great considering it was packed.  Easy to talk and listen. Wonderful decor and sights.  I did a dinner special which for me was the lasagna and baked Ziti to go for lunch. One itty bitty suggestion as I am a lighting guy - adjust the time to 5, 8, or even 10 minutes for your evening / dinner lighting preset in your Lutron system. Easy to do right on the panel and takes seconds. Once in the dimmer evening preset touch the green light for ZONES to turn off.  The use the up / down arrow to adjust times. Then hit preset again.

Ate dinner here on Sunday before a show at the South Coast Repertory.  Food, drink and service were very good but a little pricey.  Had a great waiter named Mark who was very sharp, witty and polite.  The place is a little hard to find even with GPS, but worth the extra effort.  Free self-parking was no problem.   Would go back whenever I'm in the area again.

I ate here last night for dinner.  We did the 3 course meal for $42 (had 2 side salads, 2 pastas, & 1 dessert).  We had the lasagna and baked ziti.  I highly recommend both!!!  We took home the ravioli and lasagna.  The spinach salad was excellent.  We had tiramisu for dessert and it was a huge slice and good!!!  We were stuffed when we left!  We each had two meals with our take home pasta.  Also, we used a coupon so the meal was almost half price.  The service was excellent and I was able to get a last minute reservation so we didn't have to wait for a table.  I would come here more often if it wasn't so far away!!!

I almost don't want to let this little secret out... if you're at The Grove, this is the best spot to duck into for very affordable Aperol Spritz's or cocktails. Slip in out of the heat and sit at the dark, cool bar to enjoy the company of Sal (I think that's how he spells his name), the bartender who has been there forever. He's is a super pro and all around awesome guy! Happy hour flatbreads are huge for $4 (plenty for two). Then you can order pasta to-go and take home to feed the fam for dinner. The ravioli and eggplant parmesan are especially tasty. I'm not a fan of chain restaurants but this one feels more authentic than most, and I appreciate the fact they retain their staff like Sal. Plus, it's hard to find "old fashioned" Italian food in LA unless you're in Beverly Hills or on the east side (if so I highly recommend family owned Il Capriccio on Vermont). Maggiano's delivers consistently on serving old school Italian comfort food. The fried calamari is exactly as you imagine it to be in a traditional Italian eatery. Try it! More...

I came here with my ex a few years ago and we did the family style dinner and it was bomb! I can't rave enough about our experience. Everything was perfect from the customer service to every dish that we tried. All the food was good! We were so stuffed by the time we left this restaurant. You also don't spend an arm and a leg either. It's under the amount that you would spend at a Fleming's but more upscale than a Friday's. Definitely check them out! More...

One of the best Italian restaurants in Southern California hands down. Service is over the top. Really, the best service crew in any restaurant. Food was served at just the right pace to fully enjoy a dinning experience.  Food was absolutely fantastic. A must go in Southern California. More...

I'm giving this place five stars just because of the Rigatoni D! :-) If you haven't been to Maggiano's, you have to try this dish. The creamy deliciousness is irresistible. The best combo is to couple this pasta with the Maggiano's House Salad. When you blend the flavors of these dishes with the free bread the restaurant offers, there's going to be a party in your mouth! Now, if you throw the Stuffed Mushrooms in the mix, it's pure ecstasy!The restaurant is located in Tysons Galleria (the mall with the fancier stores). The atmosphere is cozy (with Frank Sinatra playing in the background) and an excellent venue for any special occasions (e.g., birthdays, engagement dinners, and even weddings). The staff is well-trained (for the most part) and usually friendly. I never get the most friendly vibe from the host at the front desk, but the servers are great.It's a large (chain) restaurant so you're not going to get the same homey vibe you'd get at a family-owned Italian restaurant (Ciao Osteria in Centreville comes to mind), but the food is legit and never disappoints!

We love their specials that you order one food and one pasta you take home free. Plus, the size of their food is big enough that you may not be able to finish it there. Don't get full on the bread and olive oil+balsamic vinegar then, but if you like the bread, just asked the waiter to pack it for you. More...

Went in around 6:30pm on a Saturday. They have an area they consider the bar area with tables/booths that don't require a wait, we sat right down. They hve a complicated menu so make sure to take the paper out of the menu to see the rest of it (I promise it's not just one page). They have an amazing deal an appetizer, meal dessert and a meal to take home for around 50 dollars for two (don't quote me on the price). That deal you cannot beat at all. Had the chicken alfredo, it was good but it does not compare to the lasagna I had taken home. The lasagna is amazing I would recommend adding more cheese but the taste is def there. The desert was soooo good as well hd the brownie with ice cream and strawberries, the fruit was so fresh. For the appetizer we got the mozzarella stick which were huge and delicious!! Great job Maggianos. Overall I would recommend people to give it. The venue is a nice size dining area, bar area and an upstaires which I assume is for parties. They have a live piano performer. The restaurant is not noisey at all either such a nice atmosphere especially to go for a drink. It's located at the Grove so paid parking, but they do validate. They also have Valey too if you want that option. More...

We have been to the city walk location and it doesn't compre to this one! This one is lighted, not crowded at all. We came on a Sunday afternoon thinking we would wait for more than half an hour or so, they sat us down as soon as we told them it was a party of two! Service was fast and server was tentative. Will definitely have to come back! More...

When I walked through the doors of Maggiano's, it felt like I was meeting The Godfather in the underbelly of Little Italy. Jokes aside, this place was absolutely delicious! I started off with the Italian Tossed Salad. Very, very tasty. For my main dish, I ordered the Chicken Francese with hand cut fettuccine, which was bomb.com. Pro tip: they can make it spicy. It gives it a nice kick. Service was awesome. Our server was really attentive. I will definitely be back. 10/10 do recommend. More...

I don't live in the area, so I don't get here often, but when I do, it feels like such a treat. Had dinner here to allow traffic to die down a little. Started in the bar area during Happy Hour waiting for our son to arrive. Cole made our drinks to perfection, such a nice guy, very humble and gracious. Had a nice interaction. Moved into the dining room, very nice and accommodating server, although I forget her name. Food quality was on point, we ordered Chicken Parmesan, Fettuccine Alfredo, and Moms Lasagna. All FABULOUS! Of course, we had take homes and left overs, which they neatly packaged up for us. Getting the check is amazing, its on a tablet, so you insert your card after seeing the bill, add tip, boom, you're done. All the associates thank you as you're leaving. Phenomenal. I love this place! More...

Maggiano's Little Italy was an amazing experience. It was my first time eating here and our waiter Mark was very helpful! He had great suggestions on the menu and offered to take our food back if we didn't like it. The portion sizes were pretty large. I loved the option of being able to take a pasta home too! More...

Right off the bat one thing about Maggiano's is location. Wherever it's upscale and convenient that's where you find this Italian-American restaurant. This place exudes classy yet relaxed ambiance with courteous staff receptive to one's dining requirements. We ordered Salmon Lemon and Herb, Linguine and Clams, Fettuccini Alfredo and Spinach & Artichoke Alfloro - all came with generous servings, freshly cooked and well plated. Perfect italian- american savory blend only Maggiano's can pull off.  We dined three times in the same LA branch and the place was consistently clean. We particularly like to dine in the evenings as there are plenty of room for parking. This branch is facing the parking lot. No need for reservations but to get a table on weekends without waiting it's best to call in early. Thumbs up! More...

I would rate this venue 6 stars if Yelp would allow me! My wife and I had our wedding reception there a week ago, and it was perfect!The banquet team of Linc, Sal and Brett were impeccable!My emails were returned quickly, they couldn't have been more accommodating with all the little details I requested (and there were plenty LOL), and EVERYONE LOVED THE FOOD!Many guests told us this was the best wedding they had ever attended (we were flattered and humbled) and couldn't stop raving about the delicious food!We would do another affair there in a heartbeat! Huge thanks to Sal, Linc, Brett and all of the Maggiano's staff. You made our dream day a reality! More...

We did a surprise 60th birthday brunch for my brother-in-law here yesterday and it was absolutely perfect.  We made reservations for 30 guests.  We were seated very quickly.  The staff was very accommodating and helpful.  Since we were a large group we expected the food to take longer to come out but kitchen did great and got all of our orders out at the same time.  The food was so good!  Everyone was happy and most of all my brother-in-law had the best time ever!

I came here with low expectations because rarely am I excited about Italian cuisine and I am especially skeptical of chain Italian restaurants. But I was very pleasantly surprised!Firstly, I loved the bread, yum!!! So fresh and baked hot for you. It was delicious to eat with the olive oil, I just wished they kept the balsamic vinegar at the table. I ordered from the Classic Menu pastas where you could buy one and then take one home, which is definitely the way to go if you want a good deal. So I got the fettuccini Alfredo to eat and the spaghetti with marinara to go. The serving size was much larger than expected, so that was great. And the fettuccini was fantastic! One of the best I've had, being super rich, creamy, and flavorful. I really enjoyed it. The spaghetti to go was fine, nothing extraordinary, but you can't really get it wrong. More...

This was a great place to settle down after a day spent at the Grove. Pull out the "secret" menu from the middle of the topside on any menu, and find your way to the classics. For any order, get another to take home for the next night, at no added cost.I got Mom's Lasagna, which was exactly what I expected it to be with no strange twists. A tasty classic lasagna. For around $15, including the second meal that came to my table pre boxed and bagged, I couldn't ask for anything else. It was a decently sized plate, and I'm leaving with a full and happy tummy.The only thing I was add here as a tip is that the norm for the staff is to add balsamic vinegar to the dip dish for the bread. I would advise asking them just to leave it at the olive oil.Service staff was also incredible. Extremely pleasant and with a well mannered humor More...

Celebrated my birthday with a large party of 23 guests. Maggianos was accommodating. The service was quick and the employees were kind and welcoming. We wanted to take shots of fireball and the employees went to the store to purchase fireball for us because they didn’t have it on bar already. I had a great experience and will definitely be back again. Also this is the second special occasion I’ve celebrated here. I was promoted at work 2 years ago and had a celebratory dinner here also (18 guests). Great service and food for large and parties twice in a row. I highly recommend Maggianos! More...

I brought my sister and mom here for my sister's bday. There was a mix-up with a take-home dish but I didn't recognize it until 4 days later.

Great customer service always keeps guests happy and coming back--and I appreciate that. Will eat here again. The whole wheat pasta option was brilliant! More...

It's delicious. Great service! Did not have a wait when we arrived after church, so Sundays are great! Family friendly (we have a 5.5 month old). The alcoholic drinks are reasonably priced and delicious. The menu has prices for the alcoholic drinks. They have a fantastic hidden pasta menu and a brunch menu. My husband and I started out with stuffed mushrooms. They were delicious. Then I ordered a Bloody Mary and he ordered an Old Fashioned. I love the cheese stuffed olives that came with my Bloody Mary. My husband says "I feel a little tipsy right now, so it's good. Not very strong, but just right." For our entrees I ordered the Crab Cake Benedict. So DELICIOUS.My husband got the Italian American Breakfast! The bacon was a good mix between fatty and crispy. The eggs he got over- medium, they weren't overly runny! Great flavor. The ham had a great smoky taste to it. The potatoes are great and crispy. We sat outside and it was beautiful. We had a couple visits from bees, but we weren't bothered. Just showed them away.

The dining room is large and seating is always available for lunch. Parties six or more are encouraged to call ahead, which you can do I any case. The wait staff is very knowledgeable about all items on the menu, as well as specials. The buy one in, take one out daily special is the best value in the DMV. Two meals for the price of one (and all under $20). The restaurant is very busy during the holiday season, but otherwise a good table and great food is always available. Proximity to the Friendship Heights metro stop makes getting there from anywhere very convenient. I have never had a bad meal or poor service there for the past 15+ years I have been going there.

I'm pretty regular at maggianos and I always used to get the same thing (eggplant parmesan pasta) but this time I decided to try something different since I was really craving a good shrimp pasta. I got the shrimp scampi, subbed out the angel hair for the hand cut fettuccine pasta. It was good, but still missing that "zing" to it. I did get plenty of shrimp though and they were really good. My friend got the rigatoni d pasta which was so good. Tender pieces of chicken, plenty of mushroom and just bursting with flavor. Our servers, Hymie and Joseph were very attentive and great. More...

This is a chain that upgraded its mainstay items.  I went to one in Dallas and I liked my minestrone soup so much I went two days later in Orange County California.  Our salads, steaks, and pastas were great as well.  It is so improved that it will be on our rotation of restaurants.  Do not forget to try the bread because it is outstanding.

I've been coming to this location for dinner for years now. I enjoy the food. My office had our holiday luncheon one year in a private room and it was nice. In more recent times, I've been here mostly for happy hour. This is my go to spot before movie screenings across the street. I find the happy hour reasonable for the area. They only have flatbreads as their happy hour food but it's not bad for $4. The drinks are good. The place is never usually packed. I enjoy chatting with Karen (the bartender) every time I come in. I have a $10 off $30 coupon so I should come use that soon! Who wants to take me to dinner? More...

Great food for a chain Italian restaurant.  It's like an Italian Applebee's taken up two notches on the fine dining scale.  Our waiter was excellent.Prime Ribeye: A+Way better than it ought to be for a chain.  Obviously aged meat.  Intensely soft and flavorful.  Beautiful cut of meat.Chicken Saltimbocca: AAgain, better than it ought to be.  A fantastic dish done perfectly.The reason why I'm giving 4 instead of 5 stars is because of the sauce.  An Italian restaurant should have the marinara sauce down perfectly.  Their sauce is, sadly, mild and sweet.  Disliked it.  I would've liked it better had they opened a bottle of Rao's tomato sauce.  If the sauce were deeper, thicker, and not so sweet, this restaurant would easily be 5 stars by my reckoning.

Perfect experience. I don't ever write reviews, but I downloaded yelp just to give this place five stars. First off, this restaurant is huge. The interior is classy, yet cozy. The service is fast and friendly. The food was extremely delicious and reasonably priced, and the house wine is super smooth. The waitress gave us a free appetizer because it was our first time there, and she also gave us a free pasta dinner to-go. Very cool promotion, so get there while it lasts! More...

Have eaten at this location twice in the last 3 months and both times it was a great experience. The first time in June for my childs graduation and then tonight for her college send off dinner. Both times the experience was superb and above and beyond by all staff. The first time Courtney was or server, she was efficient, we never waited for anything and the food was delicious. not to mention she was funny and fun to be around. Tonight Lani was our server, again, she was bubbly and friendly, efficient and we never waited long for anything. one member of my party's dish was not quite right and Teddy, the manager, came out to us, and he prepared it the way it should be done. Cannot say enough nice about either of them, and overall, would highly recommend this restaurant. More...

GREAT happy hour. Italian sausage flat bread was more than enough to share for 2 people. Came with lots of sausage, cilantro, fresh tomatoes and cheese. Drinks were VERY cheap. All in all, my girlfriend and I only spent about $9 each for flatbread, 2 drinks plus tips. (Ps the service was awesome too!) More...

We just had a wonderful dinner for my husband's birthday and our waiter, Evan, was AMAZING! He rattled off 6 very complicated orders off the top of his head (without writing any of it down) and everything came out perfect! and his charming personality and table side manner were fantastic! He's been there 5 years, yet it seems like he's been there his whole life! The food was outstanding -- as usual -- but this waiter took the cake! He went the extra mile and you could tell he LOVES WHAT HE DOES! It's customer service like that that stands out and keeps customers coming back! More...

I came here for my mom's birthday and we had such a great experience.The staff was excellent and took such great care of us. Our waiter was Vic and he was super helpful and friendly. Because I am allergic to some foods, they even had the chef come out and talk to us to make us feel completely safe about what I was eating. They really went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with everything.The prices are great for the amount of food you are getting. We chose to do the pick 2 meals (eat one at the restaurant and take one home to go) and the portions were huge. For about $15-18, you get two meals (but really you can stretch this to 3-4 meals since they are pretty big).The desserts were fantastic. We got the cheesecake and then they also surprised us with lemon cookies with a little candle for my mom's birthday. My parents were extremely happy with the service and food, and will definitely be back for our next celebration. More...

I absolutely love Maggiano's! The casual but also fancy ambiance filled with loud chatter and laughs of people enjoying their company and food is great. I love the portions are almost family style(depending on what you order). We just went here for my birthday on Aug 1st and we were very happy. I've never had any problems or disappointments before, but this day we had ONE SMALL disappointment (which was very out of the norm!!!) our butter cake was over baked. I was extremely bummed because, who doesn't look forward to BUTTERCAKE!!! Even still I will definitely be back. More...

I was craving some pasta for dinner and came across Maggiano's. The restaurant is dim and has a relaxing dinner ambiance. We were seated right away on a busy Thursday night. Our server was super kind, I forgot her name! But she made dinner wonderful with her service. We did the meal for 2, which is a pretty good deal. For about $42, you can choose and two pastas to eat at the restaurant, and take 2 classic pastas home. It comes with a side or two salads, and dessert! The lasagna was pretty filling and good! The Johnny's Carbonara was amazing!!!! It just had this cheesy flavor you couldn't get enough of. Their stuffed mushroom side was very fulfilling too. The mushrooms are huge and they give you a lot of them. Lastly, the tiramisu dessert was also to die for. We took home a fettuccine Alfredo and four cheese ravioli! Overall, Maggiano's is a pretty solid Italian restaurant! More...

I love pasta and this place totally hit the spot! I couldn't resist their BOGO deal so pasta for days!! We started off with a huge plate of steam mussels which were absolutely delicious in it's buttery lemon sauce. Each one was tender and actually pretty fresh. For the pastas, I tried the baked ziti, lasagna, lobster linguine (special of the night), and ravioli. My fav was the linguine but probably because it's marinated in butter. The other pastas were pretty decent too and pretty flavorful. I would recommend the lasagna and then ravioli. Everything was pretty stuffed and meaty which was plus. We ended the night with a chocolate cake which I literally ate for days but so worth the calories! More...

Maggiano's is a New York style Italian restaurant that truly provides delicious food and great quality service. We've been coming here for years and I've always had an exceptional experience.

Great brunch—lemon ricotta pancakes were to die for. Even though we had our parking validated, we were still charged $9. First two hours should be free, but apparently, if you go over 2 hours (by a few minutes), you are charged full price. Second time this happened to us. Prefer free parking at Columbia Maggiano’s!

We love Maggiano's, and have been to multiple locations throughout the USA (we are from Toronto). We choose this location to celebrate my husband's birthday while in Washington for the weekend. I have dietary restrictions, and the server immediately went to get Zeb, the head chef at that location. He patiently went through the menu, and even brought us his special gluten free meatballs to try! They were outstanding! Maggiano's is ALWAYS consistent with great food, excellent service and great value - we have never been disappointed and never leave feeling hungry!Thank you! More...

That will be my go to entree from now on. For dessert we got a fried banana cheesecake which was amazing. This place certainly did not disappoint! More...

My family all loves coming here for dinner. The quality of the food is always delicious and properly prepared. The price is not too bad because the portions are big and the quality is high. But we usually reserve coming here for special occasions. We've come here on several occasions and we always have a great experience. The restaurant is pretty large and at times it can get quite loud.  It's great if you're looking for a lively crowd and atmosphere. I won't recommend it if you're looking for an intimate atmosphere.  The parking lot can get pretty full but it's large so there's always parking. We'll be back soon. More...

Kudos to their Back of House as everything was fresh and very flavorful. The lasagna was a huge portion and believe me, I wish I had more simply because it was so tasty.

I am reviewing the Maggiano's catering division at Tyson's. I have had Maggiano's catering several times in the past year (mostly through school events) and they always do a fabulous job delivering hot food that tastes delicious. They are able to modify orders (like putting chicken on the side out of a pasta, etc). I decided to try Maggiano's catering for my wedding reception. I had a MAJOR mishap on my wedding delivery and date on MY BEHALF, and Maggiano's handled it with INCREDIBLE generosity and kindness. Shafiq is the contact for the catering and is personable and easy to communicate with. I met him in person for the original order, and communicated online through email. Even though it is a "chain," they care about the local schools, groups, and community, For just $1,500, I was able to feed over 100 people a delicious full meal (pasta, salad, chicken, dessert), have everything set up and delivered, and have several people take home meals for lunch the next day. Please consider Maggiano's for your next major event and I promise you will not be disappointed in the food or the service. More...

I can't believe I've never written a review for this restaurant. My family and I come here all the time. It's one of our favorites! My husband and I came in last night for a little date night. Since it was during the week there was no wait and we were seated in the dining room very quickly. Often times during the weekend it's full, so I recommend making a reservation or if you're cool with a more laid back atmosphere, there's always self seating in the bar area. But we always try to sit in the dining room when we can.All the waiters and servers are TOP notch! We have never had bad service. Jason is PHENOMENAL and easily our FAVORITE. My husband and I always smile when we see him. He's very funny, and kind and he makes us feel like we are just having some drinks and grub at a friends house. If you can sit in his section, go for it! We ask for him specifically sometimes! He's just the best! Food is always good! We usually get the Marcos meal for two which is so affordable! It's about $40 for an appetizer, two entrees, dessert AND pasta to take home. Last night however we did a la carte and I tried the salmon per Jason's suggestion. It was SO good. It came with fried shrimp and mashed potatoes and spinach. REALLY good! If you're a seafood lover, get it. It was such a huge portion. We also love the bloody Mary's here! Lots of olives and spicy! Yum! They validate parking and it's nice to walk out meal off at the grove and just look around. It's very family friendly here so if you're a parent and unsure, just bring your kiddos. We have been bringing our two year old here since she was a month old. Seriously can't say enough good things about Maggianos. Highly recommend it if you're in the mood for Italian! More...

The Mom's Lasagne was AMAZING. This is not your normal chained restaurant that serves bland food. The food was well seasoned and taste very fresh. The lasagne portion was a great size (I had leftovers). The lasagne was loaded with ricotta and cheese. I also had the raspberry lemonade which was extremely sweet but once I added water to dilute some of the sugar it was amazing. The bread is also good but I did not have any left by the time my food came. I would definitely recommend this place. More...

Made it feel like a comfortable Italian home, waited to see if Mama would come out of the kitchen with an apron on. Server staff was mature, which is a good sign of an excellent owner that takes care of his employee's which translates to employee's taking care of its customers.

I have been to Maggiano in other cities but not this one. We had three people in our party and others in the party were really happy with their food. I was a bit disappointed with my salmon though. I am a bit picky when it comes to seafood. The salmon was not fresh; I could taste the freezer burn fillet. Secondly, the fillet was over cooked and it was dry. Third, it had no flavor. I would have given this a place a two or three star for this. However,!i was very impressed with the service. The waitress was very good, which compensated for the low rating on the food. There two people in our party that needed some modifications on their dishes. When we presented that to the waitress, she accepted it welcomingly. This type of accommodation is always appreciated and noted! More...

I've been to a Maggiano's in OC. For some reason, Italian food tastes way better in West LA. I came here for a joint birthday celebration on a Saturday and the place was nearly empty so it took us no time to get seated. Not sure if they make their balsamic vinaigrette in-house, but it tasted so good with the bread. I ordered the Rigatoni "D" and it was delicious if you're into sweet/savory pasta dishes. Each of us were able to take another pasta dish home for no extra charge, and the four cheese ravioli I took home was the best four cheese ravioli I've ever had holy crap. The cheese was really creamy and the sauces they used complimented the pasta really well. Overall great experience! More...

Great Italian place. Very big portions. There was 7 of us and we ordered 4 dishes and everybody shared and actually brought some home too. I had the lasagna and it was very good. Also had the chicken fettuccini and the spaghetti. It was all delicious, but to be completely honest I had better Italian a couple blocks down at the Market. Also, here's a tip that nearly got us..... they hand you a menu that is very pricey. We were about to walk back down to the Market to eat, until we realized that there's actually a separate menu stuck inside the pricey one. The 2nd one had your basic Italian dishes at more reasonable prices. Overall, good food at reasonable prices. Authentic Italian food More...

Big portions so ideal for a larger party (more than 4) of hearty eaters - go with stretchy pants! With the family style option ($30+), you choose an appetizer (stuffed mushrooms), salad (chopped), main courses (lasagna, chicken marsala, pasta d, tilapia), and two desserts (butter bread, apple turnover with vanilla ice cream). They refill your plates if you finish each one, so lots of food possible! My one complaint about the food was that the tilapia tasted fishy; it was supposed to be encrusted but the batter was lacking too. The service on the Wednesday night was quite slow (over two hours in the dining too because there was a convention in town). By the time for dessert rolled around, we were pretty much wanting to leave.The slow service, however, allowed us to space the food out a bit, which was one plus.For a chain, I was pleased with the food and if the service had been a bit faster and a bit more on point, it would have improved the experience.Based on its location outside Reading Terminal, reservations are likely needed.

I love the place the only thing I see that has a problem with the tables because they are not firm especially the center is preferable to sit in the seats, although I have run into some broken suggest that these details should be arranged delicious food and especially the  The waitress Lindsey's attention is always very pleasant and she does her best to serve us well

My frozen peach bellini and rigatoni dinner were AMAZING. My husband and I were in town for a convention across the street and went for dinner. We sat in the bar area at a high top and were served by Graham, who was super attentive and recommended a delicious carrot cake for dessert. Will definitely return when we come back to the city!!!

This was perhaps the best dining experience I have had in a very long time.  We had an impromptu company dinner here with 20 people and they were able to accommodate us quickly and easily.  Our team ordered family style and it was fantastic.  I will need to update this more later, but I felt completely at home and the chef made me a special dinner to cater to my allergies, and it was delicious.

We were confused when we couldn't find classic pastas on the menu.  Turns out they were hidden in a secret sliding compartment of the menu.  They have Coke products so that made me happy.  I had the fettucine alfredo and it was very good.  The alfredo sauce is made fresh each day.  The serving was huge, I couldn't finish it.  It could have probably been split between two people.  A person who I was with got the spaghetti and meatball and it was huge also.  The waitress was very attentive and kept our drinks filled and bread stocked.

Maggiano's remains wildly popular here in the Convention Center area of Philadelphia, and for some great reasons.Just gonna get it out of the way that Maggiano's picked an inherently great location (being near the Reading Terminal Market and the Pennsylvania Convention Center), which keeps it at the forefront in people's minds and eyes.We stopped by for a workday lunch at noon on a Friday, we were the only customers inside and I was shocked to see how empty it was. Even though Maggiano's only opens at noon, I'd still have expected it to be crazy busy right off the bat on a weekday. But alas, what do I know; I only review restaurants, not run them! HahaaAnother surprise that you might not expect: it was *cold* inside! Again, this was when it first opened at noon; I'll skip a beat and mention that it was completely comfortable within the hour, once many more customers filled the tables inside. Nothing to be alarmed about, just an FYI.It happened to have taken 30 minutes for our appetizers to arrive, from the time that we ordered them. We literally had to flag down our waiter and ask when food might start arriving. Food finally came out about 10 minutes later. We were on a business lunch, mind you; not that we pointed that out.I will skip another beat and say that a manager later came out to talk with us, and profusely apologized for the delay of food. In fact, she was nice enough to complement our meals with free desserts at the end - for all of us. So that was sweet, literally! Maggiano's has a rustic interior, which tends to be common for traditional Italian restaurants. This is especially a great place for a that special date, a special celebration, or even just a great treat to yourself just because you are you! And the waitstaff were all very kind, and are dressed in white shirt and black aprons. It's a classy place!The tomato & basic bruschetta was my appetizer of choice. The toasted bread was perfect - with its crunchy outside and chewy inside - to hold the heavy pile of chopped tomatoes, basil, garlic, and balsamic vinaigrette.I ordered the chicken parmigiana and pasta for the main course, which was delicious, and plentiful enough for a hearty serving. The dish itself didn't knock my socks off, but there was nothing to complain about. Both chicken and pasta were done perfectly, and the sauce was thick and succulent.Again - the manager took a moment to visit with us as we were finishing out main courses, and offered us free desserts for the delay in serving our food. The way to a man's heart truly is his tummy, and the entire visit made me happy!If you can't make it down to Philadelphia's Italian Market (can we still call it that these days?), then you could do a lot worse if you don't try Maggiano's Little Italy fine dining restaurant!

We reserved a table at this restaurant on opentable.com. When we arrived they said our phone number would receive a text. 15 minutes after our reservation was supposed to be for, we checked in with the desk again and they said they had sent us a text but we never got one. When we did get sat, we waited about 5 minutes and then our server greeted us and took our drink and food order all at once at our request. The Frozen peach Bellini was delicious and strong. The chicken parmesan was cooked perfectly and a huge portion. My husband's seafood de mare was a large bowl filled with chunks of lobsters, clams, mussels and shrimp. We both thought the bread they serve at the beginning of the meal was excellent with olive oil and parmesan that you mix together at the table. Overall the food was very good. More...

Came here to see what the hype was about and to have dinner and chat.  The place is fairly large and is inviting when you walk in.  Plenty of seating on both sides of the restaurant.   The menu is detailed and has some pretty nice options to choose from.  We decided to go with calamari for the appetizer and it was okay.  Nothing too special to rave about.  I've had better before but it wasn't bad either.  We decided to get a few different options.  The grilled Salmon salad, salmon Oscar and linguine di mare were the options we selected.  I have to admit everything was prepared well and everything tasted good.  I'm usually very picky when it comes to seafood being as though that's all I eat but I have no complaints.  Our waiter was very attentive and made sure that we got what we asked for. I would come here again and check out other items on the menu. More...

Went here for my birthday with my boyfriend. we shared the mozzarella marinara and sausage and peppers for apps- both were delish. For our entree boyfriend had shrimp fra diavolo which is his go to here- he said it was amazing as always. I had the chicken parmesan and garlic mashed potatoes- no skin on the potatoes which is a thumbs up in my book. Our server was amazing! The only reason for the four stars is there was no acknowledgement of my birthday- when making the reservation my boyfriend said we were celebrating my birthday- while I wasn't expecting a tacky happy birthday song I at least assumed there would be a candle in my dessert or a happy birthday from the server or host. I'll continue to eat there because it is one of our favorites, just not sure i would celebrate a birthday or anniversary there in the future. More...

In town for business and didn't realize it was restaurant week but what a delightful surprise! 4 courses for $35?! I was sold. first course:I opted for the tomato, basil, balsamic glaze bruschetta for the appetizer. Reminded me so much of my mom's own way of doing it that I almost called her from the restaurant. Delicious!2nd  course:Maggiano's salad with iceberg lettuce, red onion, (huge) bleu cheese crumbles, fried prosciutto and house dressing. I don't know if the cheese or dressing did me in, but I'm definitely coming back for more of that sometime. :salivates through the screen:3rd course:I chose the chicken marsala and it was good, but prob my least favorite of the tastings I had. Chicken seemed a little rubbery and the sauce didn't taste especially marsla-y but I still enjoyed it, 100%. It also came with a side of garlic/butter spaghetti. Italians love their portions, and I do too! Yum!Fourth and final course:I cannot emphasize enough how delicious and scrumptious the zuccotto balls are. It's like a chewy brownie, dipped in ganache, with powdered sugar, chocolate sauce, and cocoa powder sprinkled on top. HEAVENLY. They are a little rich--they look small, but 3 were plenty! I also had a bourbon sour that was decent, but without a doubt, the star of the dining experience, my aproned crusader, the main attraction:my server, Khadijah, (or "K" as she introduced herself) saved what started out a disappointing experience, being almost abandoned at the start of my meal. Herself having just been cut, swooped in, took up the reins, and made my meal one of the most delightful dining experiences I have had in about 4 months, I'd say. MAJOR KUDOS TO WHOEVER HIRED HER and thank you for taking my table! Even as busy as it was with restaurant week, you were cool-headed, appropriately chatty, didn't forget anything, constantly attentive, and absolutely delightful. BRAVA! More...

I went to Maggiano's after the Christmas festivities the weekend before Christmas, it was phenomenal. I got there around 9pm & of course there was a wait, I wasn't expecting here not to be. I was told I would wait 35min for a table for two. It felt like way less. Once we sat down we were greeted with our waitress, Unique. She was so joyful and really made us comfortable. She asked if we were here to celebrate the holidays or a special occasion. We let her know it was both, for Christmas & our anniversary. She congratulated us, but in such a sincere way. I had questions about the menu which we answered in seconds after I showed her a picture of a dish I had there a year ago. You could tell she knew her job and that she was highly educated on the food. Unique got back to us quickly as she work hard at her other tables. It was not long at all with the amount of tables she had. Our food came out fast and our table was filled with bread right away. We ordered dessert at the end & with it came out the lemon cookies but with candles!Unique had went out of her way to congratulate us on our anniversary! You could tell it really came from her heart. She really made an impact and it made the night so much more special. I really do appreciate how she treated us. All I know is that Unique definitely deserves a raise. I've never met such an amazing waiter/waitress, especially with such amazing work ethic! Thank you Unique!!! More...

The food was very good I had the crab cake eggs Benedict which was so yummy and cooked the way I liked. Also my friend enjoyed her dish of the French toast with a side of scrambled eggs. However the cranberries in the French toast weren't really her "cup of tea" but otherwise we both enjoyed ourselves. The mimosas had us nice and giggly More...

The service was amazing. My boyfriend ordered a dish and requested no cheese. Before it came out the manager wanted to double check that there was no allergy and explained to us that there was cheese in the sauce. Having ordered the dish before (a long time ago), my boyfriend gave the green light for the dish, simply requesting no addition cheese on top to garnish. When he received the dish, we realized that it was a very different sauce from the last time he ordered it. It really was completely our mistake and misunderstanding as the manager mentioned what the sauce was like. Not realizing it had changed that much from the last time, we said it was okay. Well, my boyfriend absolutely couldn't do the sauce. Again, our mistake 100 percent! But that did not stop them from assuring he got exactly what he thought he was going to. They took away the old dish and made him a new one. The chef came out to deliver the new dish and to be certain the sauce was what he was expecting this time. He was so pleasant about the situation. I've worked in service. I know how annoying it can be when you tell a customer something and they disregard what you've said and end up not happy with what they received even after you've explain it to them. They did not care. They were so nice about it and even apologized to us even though it was 100 percent our faults. The food was good, but the service made it. For that we will be back much sooner this time around. More...

Where did the pasta go clubbing? Well if I had to guess it would be the meatball. Maggianos in Philly makes a top notch meatball dish. They'll customize with spice and tasty add ons like onions. The bread is aplenty fresh and warm.While the majority of the menu will take you north of $20 for any entrees the budget concious diner can land dishes for two at $16 - spaghetti with meat sauce, rigatoni arrabbiata, lasagna. For those of you looking for even more freebies, there's also some awesome mints available to grab on your way in and out!!!! More...

My first time at Maggiano's I enjoyed their thanksgiving menu with my family. The place is absolutely beautiful inside with tons of tables and  space. It is right across from the Reading Terminal Market. The thanksgiving meal was delicious. They continue to bring out plates of turkey or whatever you wanted until everyone was finished eating. It was super crowded so make sure to make reservations especially on holidays! The server was absolutely amazing. He was fast and efficient whenever we needed more food or just water. More...

For dessert a friend and I shared the chocolate cannoli cake. It was HUGE and delicious! The pricing was fair and the atmosphere was casual and a little fancy. I would definitely come back and try something new! More...

I came here for date night with my boyfriend. It's in downtown so be prepared to pay for parking. Good news, they validate your parking if you park above the restaurant so take your ticket with you! 9 bucks!We made a reservation an hour before we showed up. The place was pretty busy but we were seated right away. I had kind of low expectation because I know it is a chain and chain pasta is usually not the best. I was pleasantly surprised. The hostess and the server were very nice. The server explained that all the food is made to order...fresh so you can basically change any dish to your liking. We had fried calamari and bruschetta for apps. The calamari was sooooo good. I asked...can I just have the rings. And that's what I got. For our main dishes we got braised beef and angel hair pasta it was in some type of white sauce and linguini and white clam sauce. Both were really delicious. My linguini was hot and fresh and came to the table with whole clams and chopped clams in it. I was completely satisfied with every aspect of my dinner and would definitely go back to try some other dishes.Our total bill came to 78 dollars. I feel like that is expensive for pasta but it was good pasta with fresh ingredients. This total cost included an 11 dollar peach Bellini. Expensive as heck but it was delicious. More...

My friends and I had a reservation for 6 and tried a bunch of the classic pizzas: the Lasagna, Spaghetti and Meatball (it's a huge one), Mushroom Ravioli, and Ziti. Overall, the portions were all pretty generous and the service was great too. Our server knew it was our friend's birthday and the Chocolate Zuccotto cake had a beautiful "happy birthday" in chocolate on the plate! The only thing I didn't like that night was the Lighter Take pasta that really lacked flavor. While they do not advertise it, they "honor" the "Classic Pasta On the House" special that is offered by Maggiano's across locations. Basically, if you select a Classic Pasta from their menu, you can take one home (either the same one or another one, your choice). Know that the prices vary by location...and at this particular one, regardless of the Classic Pasta you choose, they will charge $16.95 because of the promotion (found this out when we got the bill)...we wish we knew that first (it probably would have changed some of our choices dining in). However, we still thought it was a great deal for the portions we got!If you sign up for Maggiano's e-club, you can get a $10 off $30 coupon! Just keep in mind that what you tip (or what the gratuity amount is) is based on the total, including tax and coupon. More...

This was the first time we had ever been here. It was pretty close to the hotel we were staying at, and we were craving Italian, so we decided to check it out. First of all, the service was very fast. We were seated immediately, and a waiter came by soon after to pour us water and take our drink orders. Once we had put in our orders, the food came out within ten minutes, which was surprising as the dining room was decently full. But a pleasant surprise! The food was delicious. I had the lasagna, which was some of the best I've ever had. The bread was also amazing! The small things like that really make a difference. And when we ran out (there was an uneven amount to the number of people at our table), the waiter noticed almost immediately and got us a fresh basket. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. Our waiter checked on us regularly to see if we needed drinks refilled or to make sure our food was alright. Even just as we walked out, as we passed out waiters, they made sure to smile and say they hoped we enjoyed ourselves and had a good night. It was a great dining experience. More...

I chose to sit a the bar and also experience a prompt friendly greeting. I ordered water, red wine and a few mins later my lasagna. Things took a slight turn once a few other patrons sat down, the impression I got was that they tip well . Listen, I've been a server/bartender before and I know how that goes but you just have to try to be a bit better at making everyone you serve comfortably equal. Otherwise, very nice personality and service. No complaints about the lasagna More...

My husband, two year old son and I ate dinner at this location on Saturday evening around 6pm. We were in Philadelphia for the weekend and staying close by. My son has severe peanut/tree nut allergies and I am allergic to gluten, soy and hazelnuts. Needless to say, dinners out are often stressful and with limited options for me. I often visit restaurants who claim to accommodate and I end up eating bland chicken and veggies, but am safe. I'm writing to compliment Michael Smyth, who was amazing at helping us. He guided me through the menu and when I commented I was overwhelmed, he asked what looked good. I said the manicotti with chicken and spinach but I know that can't be made gf. He said, "no problem. We will make it work" and boy did he! My baked gf pasta was delicious!! He also took just as many precautions with my son's allergies and when my two year old asked "where's the food?", in a joking way, Michael replied "we're going to make sure you stay safe and have a great meal, buddy." He was excellent!! Thank you, Michael for allowing us a stress-free, delicious meal out...it doesn't happen often. I will highly recommend this location and share our wonderful experience. More...

Tonight I along with my girlfriend and some friends had the opportunity to experience the "murder mystery dinner", and it was the most fun I've had in quite a while. We chose to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday here and let's just say Maggiano's completely delivered. From the great food, delicious desserts, awesome drinks all the way to the attentive service members...tonight was the total package. We had the murder partially solved but there's always a next time (in April I heard)

I recommend that everybody experience this at least once if you haven't already. Thank you Maggiano' staff and Chris (GM) for your awesome hospitality and service. We will be back.

*The Ravioli dish was my favorite.
(Although the Parmesan chicken was a worthy contender.)
*Be prepared to laugh & point the finger at complete strangers who are all looking for a great time. Come ready for fun!
*Trust no one except the host and the authorities.
*Eat, Drink, Laugh & solve the murder.
*Again, WE WILL BE BACK!

This is a favorite place of mine.  We planned ahead and made a reservation.

Server was very courteous and explained the menu and then brought us out bread and fixed the dipping sauce. Restrooms were very clean.  Handicap accessible and a place for changing the babies! The have a bar area and table and booth seating. The starters are a lot...enough for a meal and can even be shared.  Everyone was pleased with there choices (from pasta, Parmesan chicken, mushroom ravioli (really, really good)). Great atmosphere...lunch time conversations going on...but still great for a date, friends or family. More...

Maggiano's has always been a favorite restaurant of mine and this particular experience was right on par with the rest. They restaurant was crowded as expected at dinner time. One of my few complaints from the visit is that we had a reservation for 7 but we were seated until about 7:15/20. However once we were seated the service was timely, our waitress was caring and attentive and our food was absolutely delicious. The house salad is a must try it perfectly wets your appetite for and of the entrees. The Gnocchi and sausage is definitely one of their heavier dishes but it will last you a while and keeps well in the fridge. My only other complaint is that the cocktails were tiny. I ordered a mule expecting it to come out in a normal sized mug but it appeared to be a miniature version of that. Pro-tip save room for dessert you'll enjoy anything you try off their menu. I also loved how you can get the dessert in different portioned sizes!! More...

Have been in Philly for a month on business and this was by far the best food experience I've had since I've been here! Our server, Kim, was amazing and informed us of the monthly specials as soon as we sat down. She recommended a few things and immediately took our drink/ app order. Moscato sangria was AMAZING, but very sweet so we switched to Pinot afterwards. Generous pours! Cannot put into words how amazing the bruschetta bar was. We then ordered our meals- I had the chicken Marsala and my boyfriend ordered a special. We loved it! Had to try desert, and ended up getting the sampler even though we were stuffed. 10/10- especially the apple crisp. We were weary about coming here- especially with the 3 1/2 star reviews but we absolutely did not regret it and will be returning once we're in the area again! More...

This is a very tasty location with great service.  It was our 1st night in Philly and we decided to eat here.  We found a varied menu with everything from shrimp scampi to bruschetta.  Our food arrived at our table about 20 minutes after we ordered and for four people, that's quick!  I found it decently priced but it was very tasty food.  I definitely recommend the shrimp scampi.  Dessert was also quite good.  I had Gigi's Butter Cake which was supposed to be sticky but it was crumbly instead.  It came with whipped cream and fresh strawberries.  Our waiter was very nice and quite efficient.  I definitely recommend this place to anyone who likes traditional Italian food.

have eaten here several times on our trips to Philly.  I know it's a chain restaurant, but without the chain atmosphere.  Well appointed with several different rooms to eat in.  Food always good and so glad they serve individual dinners as opposed to the humungus portions they used to sell.  Who could eat it all?Four for dinner on a Sunday night in a very crowded Philadelphia just 3 days before the Fourth of July.  Not busy at about 5:30 and seated immediately.  Very nice waitress, Kelly was right there to see that we got our drinks on this 100 degree plus day.  And, there it was right on our table............. the bain of all dieters, that crusty fresh bread that goes so well with the olive oil and cheese on the table.  Drat! Another day backward on the diet.Did not order appetizers even though Kelly told us they were bottomless and we could have all we wanted.  Come on, you have to make a stand somewhere to lose a pound or two.We got orders of Beef Pappardelle, Lemon Salmon, Chicken Piccata and Beef Contadina.  All were very good and very filling.Love the atmosphere here.  Very clean and comfortable.  A nice go-to place in Philly.

So everyone knows this is not 5 stars for food. It's a chain restaurant but for what it is it totally overdelivers. Decent food, lots of choices, great service and unbelievably attentive. We have a grandchild with a food allergy and the chef came out to check on the details and assure us of their precautions. Ample selection and ample portions coupled with great service gets 5 stars in my book every day. If you want gourmet go elsewhere but if you to be treated like a guest come here. More...

The best Italian in the country as far as I'm concerned. It is consistently brilliant and the service and ambience is also of top caliber. The food - well, the position sizes are generous and the cooking is to perfection. They make every effort to accommodate your preferences and take the time and effort to advise there patrons properly. True awesomeness! More...

As always, I asked our waitress to recommend one of her most popular pasta dishes and I ordered it. I was extremely satisfied with not just the flavors that came through on this dish but the amount of food that was given was enough for three people. Maggiano's you ROCK, my Belly is HAPPY! . This is Johnny Carbonara ($20) a dish made with Chitarra pasta smoked bacon peas and a poached egg ... yummmmy! I also ordered the calamari which was once again a heaping serving.. The ( $15) calamari was tender the batter was light and super scrumptious with the marinara...Guess what's for breakfast LOL More...

We stopped in after attending the comic con at the Philadelphia convention Center. With two children, we were seated in a side room (as parents with kids, we are used to this from most restaurants). Wife and older child have food allergies which they accommodated nicely. Chef came out to table and talked with us. Table was a bit wobbly and they relocated us to a more stable table. Nice experience overall. Food was really really good. Only negative was that they brought our mussels appetizer out with bread in the bowl (which we had to send back due to allergy). More...

We went to Maggiano's while in town for work. I'm not personally a fan of going into chain restaurants, especially when I travel. We sat immediately and the service and food were both good. I don't think the food was very memorable but it came out hot and as ordered. More...

We first went as part of a conference kick-off event, have come back twice over the past two weeks ~ and we live in the 'burbs!  Directly across from Philadelphia/Center City Marriott, within a block of other major hotels.  Food made me feel like we were in South Philly "in the day," bar felt like it was out of Cheers, service was top notch - shoutout to Ariel from Elsa!  The eggplant parm was sublime.  My hubster introduced me to dipping the wondrous bread in olive oil, the dust with the grated Parmesan - YUM!

We got in late on a Thursday to Philly and were looking for a place to grab dinner and just stumbled onto this place.  Loved it! We had a great waiter, Josh, who was very friendly and attentive.  He brought out warm bread which was delicious. We started with the fried zucchini appetizer.  It came out hot and there was enough to feed 5 or more people.  Next I had the chopped salad and my husband had the spinach salad.  Both were good.My husband had the gnocchi.  He liked it, but said it was rich and it was a large serving.  I had the lighter take chicken piccata.  The chicken was juicy and had lots of flavor.  It was served over a bed of fettuccini and spinach.  I was glad I got the lightened up version as it was still a large portion, and it was also quite delicious.I'd definitely recommend Maggiano's!!

Delicious food and great atmosphere right by the King of Prussia mall. I loved the flatbreads and pasta dishes--take-home deal is perfect for lunch the next day. Taylor Street baked Ziti is a must-try. Often difficult to get a table, and weekend reservations are booked by Tuesday most of the time. More...

super stellar service !!!  the clam sauce was spot on ! I left nothing behind, the Sunday brunch drink specials alone were worth the trip into center city district! I ditched the usual Chinatown routine and landed at Maggaino's Little Italy. I must say the food was impressive. The calamari was cooked perfectly not  over fried and my bloody mary was excellently spiced. More...

Extremely Celiac friendly (and any other food allergies)! The entire staff practically came out to talk to me to let me know they can accommodate any of the pastas to be gluten free. They are a scratch kitchen. I got the chicken Parmesan with the gluten free noodles and it was delicious! Highly recommend, especially for anyone with food allergies. More...

My family and I were in their last night for dinner.  Their food is excellent and the ambiance/décor is very pretty. The best part of our experience, however, was our waiter! We were waited on by a young man named Ashton and when I tell you - he could NOT have been nicer or more professional and efficient!  The service was absolutely outstanding! We got there just as the happy hour was about to expire.  He greeted us warmly and then happily rushed our drink orders in so that we could get the happy hour special.  At the end of the night, he even wrote a lovely note on our bill!  It was a terrific experience and I sure hope management appreciates what a great asset he is to the establishment!  I would absolutely recommend this place to anyone looking for a scrumptious dinner and impeccable service!

Since my recent move I find myself frequenting this location more often since it's so close by. Love the food here and the portions are a nice size. You'll definitely have leftovers the next day. I normally always get the penne vodka. I don't think it's An menu item but they make it for me without an issue. The peach Bellini's are AMAZE! Could be a tad bit stronger but so yummy. I always ask for Lexi when I go. She's so pleasant, informative, and attentive. No complaints here! More...

Can always come here for a trusty meal that hits the right spot. Got the chicken sausage flatbread today - and didn't realize it was happy hour!! $4!! - and it was a nice snack with well flavored and generous chicken, a sweet sauce, and crispy flatbread. Mushroom ravioli are one of my favorite dishes. Seven ravioli doesn't look like much but omg I'm so stuffed after finished a plate bc the cheese sauce is so heavy but in an I can't stop eating type of way. Carbonara came with a perfect poached egg and tasty fresh tasting peas and pancetta. Also got the classics lasagna which is a classic with well cooked and seasoned pasta, sauce, meat, and ricotta cheese. More...

Stuck in jury duty and with the Flower Show in town, Reading Terminal Market was no place to be at lunch time. I hightailed it to Maggiano's, where I hoped I could grab a seat at the bar and a reasonably healthy lunch. As luck would have it, there was one open bar stool. I ordered an iced tea and the chopped salad with chicken. In the meantime, I received a bread basket with olive oil and spices - this helped take the edge off. My salad arrived soon after and I have to say, it really hit the spot. This salad was huge but I ate every last bite. The dressing was delicious and not too heavy-handed. The chicken was tender. My only complaint would be that the tomatoes were hard. I wish restaurants would omit tomatoes when they aren't in season because, more often than not, they're just sad. Lunch was pretty steep at nearly $23 plus tip, but it was worth it since I avoided the insane crowds at RTM. More...

Wow! From the atmosphere, great service and food that will make you say "oh that's good!", I'd highly recommend this restaurant if you are in Philadelphia. We stopped there while attending the tattoo festival and just tried it. We were so glad we did. Their sauces are so good you'll savor every mouthful. Prices are comparable to Olive Garden but the quality and service are actually better than the chain Italian restaurants. It is a short walk from the Philly Convention Center so if you're in that area I highly recommend Maggiano's Little Italy. More...

The service here is amazing. It was packed on a Thursday night and the server still came to check in. From the Host(s) to Server to Busser A+. Also, the manager came at end of meal to quickly ask how was. It was great service. The Chicken Cabonara with noodles left something desired for me-just for the price. Big portions. No real flavors came out. But I'll try something different next time because of the service. It's also a cool dining area where your around a bunch of people but still feel private with spacing. Would go again! More...

Okay a chain, and I have spent thousands at the one in King of Prussia and other places around the country for meetings rooms for business and sales. This review is for a personal non-business experience.  I was cashing in some Marriott points (across the street which is nice because it was 9 degrees F)  I was STUNNED by how nice Filbert St. looks compared to the 70s and 80s when it was the north side of the Reading Terminal.  i went with my wife and daughter after visiting my uncle by Rittenhouse Square. We launched my son at 30th Street to ride Amtrak back to NYC/Long Island.   My paternal and fraternal families came to the US from Ireland and settled in Philadelphia in the 1880s.  (legally :-)  )   I went to school in the 1970s at Drexel my wife to LaSalle University.  We know Philly well........go Egg-els.  Fly!!!!!!!We had a reservation because it is a Friday night and New Years weekend and the tourist count was VERY high.  place was packed and its NOT small.  We were 3 minutes early and waited about 10 minutes and were pleasantly seated.  Hostesses were super friendly.Greg our waitstaff was swift and accommodating, efficient and knowledgeable.My spouse's drinks were (by our now New York experience)  decent size and nice potency (lemon drop martini) and my daughter and I had water and club soda with lemon that was endless and always full.I got a vegetarian minestrone (has no pasta) that was really very very good, and hot was the call on this cold cold night.  For health reasons I try to avoid gluten/processed grains and also dairy.  This is did have probably cheese rind that gave it a great buttery cheese flavor and texture.   Vegetarian not whole food plant based or vegan.  My wife got a chicken piccata with a fantastic topping and capers and a side of homemade vermicelli.  She is a fantastic cook herself so when this gets high marks ....I was impressed.Finicky daughter requested an off the menu rigatoni al la vodka that i tested and it was a nice homemade sauce/gravy of small chunky tomatoes and a nice flavor.  She said it was "awesome".....I was relieved.I was a little more selective as usual, and requested a gluten free pasta (penne) and an all vegetable (no cheese) plate.  It was very wonderful and served promptly and HOT! The crew had a hankering (even though it was single digits outside) some gelato.  and we were disappointed by the limited "dessert" options.  (meaning no gelato at an Italian themed restaurant) So we ran south two block to Samson on 13 to a gelato specialty place that was FANTASTIC as well.Mission accomplished - great job Maggiano's on Filbert.

We had a wonderful dinner.  A group of 9, including two small children.  Our server, Lindsey, was excellent, gracious and smiling.  She hustled to take prompt care of every request and need, including a spilled glass of wine and two cranky kids needing to eat NOW.  Drinks from the bar, wine,  salads, appetizers, entrees all arrived timely, in spite of a packed restaurant.  All brought by a swarm of runners.  Reasonable prices and great service.

It was a bustling spot few nights before Christmas. We had a 25 min wait but got seated in about 15min.  It was nice to see the entire restaurant decked up for the holidays. Our waiter was patient and friendly. We were served complimentary dipping bread with olive oil to munch on between dishes.The FROZEN PEACH BELLINI drink was so delicious, you wouldn't even realize there is alcohol inside! It is a mixture of prosecco, bacardi limon and peach nectar.We tried a couple choices from the BRUSCHETTA BAR as appetizers which allows to us to customize our own platter. Spiced Shrimp, Candied Bacon & Tomato Balsamic Garlic were our final choices. All of them were bursting with so much flavor. It made us even more hungry for more!The entrees were humungous!!! "OUR FAMOUS RIGATONI D" was splendid in a watery but perfectly suitable sauce. The FOUR CHEESE RAVIOLI & MUSHROOM RAVIOLI were rich in cheeses- it had about 10 pieces of large ravioli. One dish can easily be shared between 2 people.Our dessert was TIRAMISU which of course did not disappoint. We left super stuffed trying our hardest to not unbutton our jeans! Was a great experience with delicious food. Highly recommend if you are a fan of Italian cuisine. More...

Probably my most favorite restaurant that we went to while here to attend the Army/Navy game. We actually had reservations to go to another restaurant one night but because we went here on our second no night here and loved it... we decided we wanted to eat here for a second time on the last night of our trip. It did not disappoint!! What an awesome meal. Great streaks and the lasagna is to die for! We loved the bruschetta as well! We did the bruschetta tour the first night and decided our second time to stick with the original bruschetta and the candied bacon one. They are the absolute best! The Margaritas and Peach Bellini's hit the spot after a great game. What made this meal even better was the great service by a young lady who kept us smiling and took good care of us. I wish wish wish I could remember her name. We were there at 8:30 pm on Saturday night. Better service than McCormick Steak House and the food was perfect! Don't hesitate to go here! More...

Good food is good food. I don't care if you're a chain, a food truck on the street or a five-star-rated restaurant. I think Maggiano's has very good food. Anyone I've ever taken there comes away amazed. I've even given up the drudgery of making Thanksgiving Dinner in favor of their Thanksgiving extravaganza. It's delicious, festive and a good value. We leave with leftovers and there is no exhausted cook left to do a pile of dirty dishes. Go check out Maggiano's and see for yourself. More...
