Brought my father here for Fathers Day dinner. As always the food was amazing. The service however was lacking. Our server was uninterested in taking care of our table. Luckily the food speaks for itself. If it wasn’t for the amazing food, the service tonight would make me think twice about visiting again

As usual, the service was great. We told our server we were going to a show and was sure to get our dinners in plenty of time for us to enjoy. The food is always excellent and the restaurant has great ambience. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for excellent food at very reasonable prices.

The food was outstanding. Each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. They were perfectly cooked and delicious. I have eaten there several times in the past and have always had excellent service. Our waiter may have just had an off night, but his service was mediocre at best.

Would give 3.5 if I could. Staff is friendly and accommodating. However, it lacks the intimacy of finer dining. In totality, this place is good for groups and for those with kids. It’s centrally located. The food is good. If you go in knowing this and being ok with it, you’ll have a good time.

We made a reservation at Maggiano's for a special occasion to celebrate my dad. The waiter was very inattentive and despite all the positive reviews on how allergy-friendly the chain is, we could only offer my son pasta and broccoli. The waiter started out by saying that anything on the menu could be made gluten free, so we said great, let's do the flatbreads or pizza, and he was like, oh not that though. Ok, what about other dishes? He said no to those as well. Then the dishes took forever to come out, especially the allergy orders, and when it did, it was half the size of another kids pasta dish at our table. Only one person at our table was pleased with what they ordered.

Overall, I can't believe Maggiano's can charge so much for such mediocre food and lackluster service when there are better options in town. We were very disappointed.

I was thankful to get a reservation within a couple days. We were seated on time and the maitre’d and server were perfectly polite. They were especially attentive to my children. I only have two requests for the future. First, valet parking was running 10 minutes late. Obviously not the end of the world but it would have been nice to be seated with my family sooner. Second, the round wings on our table were loose and drooping. So much so that my daughter spilled her drink and lost two knives to the floor because the table top was not level where she was sitting and all four wings were similarly angled. I suggest getting the tables repaired. As always the food was fantastic. I’m sure we will return.

Had a reservation for 4 and were seated at a table that was too large. We finally had to huddle together to talk. Wait staff seemed to rotate and while we ordered, they seemed to forget us and forget our requests . Was not a happy experience and would never go back.

Maggiano's ambiance is nice, service is great and the food excellent. Reservations are a good idea since the restaurant seems to be steadily busy. Portions are huge and satisfying if selecting individual plates from the menu or dining family style. Would definitely recommend.

As a resident in the Boston metro-area, I have eaten frequently at Maggiano's Little Italy. The food and the service are always well above par and I have posted multiple positive reviews of this restaurant. that is a "must visit" location in Boston. Of import for this review is that the restaurant, especially Nicole, kept our reservation intact for a family graduation celebration in the face of numerous changes required as the graduation ceremonies at a local university dragged on and on! The restaurant made adjustments so that as soon as we were able to arrive, we were ushered to a waiting table and the festivities and excellent meal could begin. This restaurant is definitely focused upon ensuring a pleasurable dining experience for all patrons.

This was a very disappointing experience. All wait staff were very rude, food came out very late even though the restaurant was almost empty. They sat us beside the kitchen door which was slammed by staff every 5 seconds so we couldn’t even hear ourselves talk. Waiter messed up our order three times on three different items and was rude about fixing them. Food was fine but so overpriced. Overall a terrible experience

We had our Anniversary dinner there Saturday night. Excellent flavored food, huge desserts! Atmosphere was nice and easy location. I had requested a private table which didn’t happen, but was still very nice. Was able to use my coupon (had to remind waitress of it) which was great. Overall, very good meal and will be back next time we are in Boston!
