I took my 12-year old son here for dinner while staying across the street at the Boston Park Plaza. While there are lots of other choices for Italian food in Boston, we went here because the menu is traditional, and good for picky eaters and...More

At the summit I attended, we played STUMP! Trivia and enjoyed a refreshing, seasoned three course meal. The host was so energetic and fun. Maggiano's carries itself with the finesse of an authentic Italian restaurant -- rivaling a lot of places in the North End...More

We stopped at Maggiano’s Little Italy on a spur of the moment trip into Boston. The red and white checkered tablecloths and Frank Sinatra crooning in the background gives the restaurant almost a movie set feel. Our waiter, Justin, thoroughly explained the specials and I...More

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Not sure if pastas was house made but the food was very good. They seem like they added a little love to it as well.

There didn't seem to be a dress code. But I would say be modest anywhere you go.
