    Four cheese ravioli 😍 so delicious! راڤيولي محشية باربعه اجبان .. لذيييذه // Chicken & Spinach Manicotti was very good too. Loooved the apple pie. But the cheesecake was not that good

    You must see live music at the bar! A truly unique and strange place to people watch. Like most Italian restaurants, if they offer an item not on the regular menu it's probably really good!

    Love their caesar salad, always ask to add some anchovies. Fresh and delicious. Eggplant Parmesan is good, too, with lot of bread crumbs. Good service, nice sized portions and great atmosphere.

    Family style deal is awesome! If you order any of the Classic Pasta dishes, you even get an extra take home meal to go - great deal for $12.95 - Loved the eggplant parmesan & baked ziti!

    A trip to Maggiano's is as much about feeding memories as it is about feeding people. You'll find authentic Italian-American cuisine, a warm atmosphere and generous portions. Food is love!

    The ambient is like a movie, soft music at night and the food and service is excellent and professional. Try the chefs suggestion if you want a surprise.

    Overcooked pasta with (yikes!) chicken thrown in. This is not Italian food. If you're not too picky, it can be fun for groups, if you drink lots of wine.

    Wonderful. Never had a bad thing. Both spaghetti and meatballs and ravioli are superb. Go early. They fill up

    They do a terrific job with large group luncheons ... Seemless and unobtrusive service, delicious and plentiful selections.

    I love Italian and this place was just ok to me. If you've never visited their chain, then I'd say give it a try for yourself just to say you've gone.

    Chef Special: Buy on of the listed items and get one to take home with you! Crazy cool. Can't wait to try my lasagna and the zini I'm bringing home.

    Good service, larger than neccessary portions and fair price. Only gripe (not sure about policy now) is that for large parties at dinner, they force you to go family style vs individual orders.

    Very accommodating banquet team. Food is good, prices are reasonable, service is attentive, and the halls look good.

    Family style is perfect for large parties when dinning in; they have party pans if you have a group of people at home and just get to get something to-go.

    Every one of their cannellonis are awesome. Try it! Sleepy-time if you have it for lunch.

    I really want to like this restaurant, but many less fancy places serve better food. Don't get the baked ziti under any circumstances - it is small tubed pasta with a little sauce and no ricotta.

    The chicken francese is awesome. A little buttery but you can still be good if you substitute the potatoes for some greens.

    Buen lugar para cenar y terminar un día de mucha caminada, platillos generosos sin rayar en lo absurdo, ir con hambre es lo recomendable. Una carta de vinos bastante extensa: bien.
