My husband took me here for my birthday! It was an evening about 7pm and the restaurant was not crowded despite being in a very busy mall area. We were seated right away, service was prompt and the food was delicious! He had lasagna and I had butternut squash ravioli. On top of it all because we ordered family style... More

I went once to this place and never returned. We had to wait for over 30 minutes to get our orders. There seemed to be no staff!!! Food was not the greatest and paid a lot more money.

I was recently a guest at a party in one of the private rooms, so my review is based on their catering alone, not for the restaurant. The bar was open, and the service was very friendly. There were 3 huge plates of appetizers served "family style", and then three lunch plates as well, plus of course, bread and dessert.... More

Went for lunch today. We are big Maggiano's fans but this was our first lunch visit. What a deal. I had the twofer deal which was choice of any two (salad, soup or half sandwich) for $10. Hubby had spaghetti and Meatball for $15 and he was given a lasagna to take home. Such a deal! And the food was... More

Maggiano's Little Italy is our go-to place for a moderately-priced upscale dinner out. We held our wedding reception at Maggiano's and our guests raved at the beautiful surroundings, reminiscent of turn-of-the-century Italian restaurants in New York's Little Italy. We also go to Maggiano's in September during the San Genaro festival. You get the same great food, but don't have to... More

I really like the food. It is not the best around but I go here quite often. I do like the pasta dishes.

This was our first time at a Magliano's restaurant and we were pleasantly surprised. I usually prefer family owned Italian restaurants rather than chains. The entrees were fresh and well prepared. The service was great. They even brought out complimentary brochetta since were were first timers. Before we left, our waitress gave us an additional entree to take home. The... More

Went here for the first time recently with a large group of friends. I have been to the Las Vegas venue and it was wonderful. I found this location a bit below that one. My lasagna was just OK. The chicken francaise was very good. The zucchini appetizer was excellent. Everyone seemed to enjoy their meals. We didn't have dessert,... More

First time here for business and a good dinner and I am pretty impressed. A Couple of bottles of Sonoma Cutrer Chardonnay, one at the beginning and one at the end. Started the night with a Maggiano's salad. Followed by Spaghetti and meatball and ziti a la vodka with sausage. All three dishes were flavorful, fresh, plenty, and Delish. Gravy... More
