This is one of my favorite places. The staff is so nice and the food is beyond words! Rigatoni D is my absolute favorite thing there. I half expected to empty out the wallet on this one but price for food, starter, and drinks were so reasonable. You will see me there again.

We made reservations on Open Table which made it easy, and when we arrived at the restaurant they had our table ready and sat us down immediately. The service was impeccable as well as the food. We were celebrating my parents 59th wedding anniversary and my father’s 80 birthday. They treated all and especially them like royalty! Thank you Maggiano’s for a excellent experience! We will be back when we revisit from TEXAS.

The Family style was perfect. The muscles were out of this world. The desserts were out of this world.

We come here for my wife's birthday and are never disappointed.

Close proximity to our hotel made it very convenient. We had a lovely waiter, the food selection was wide and varied, including gluten free options. There was a hum and busyness to the restaurant, but not so much as to inhibit good conversation around our own table. We would patronize this establishment again.

Maggiano's is a chain and consistent from city to city. I've found the service to always be good and the food is very good, not over the top good. It's a safe place and good value compared to most downtown fine dining. On this visit our waiter was noteworthy, he was exceptional and deserves to be mentioned. Our meal was significantly impacted by the group of 8-10 that were seated next to us after we were seated. Like a lot of larger groups, they ended up getting very loud. Maybe some drinks at the bar while waiting for their table? Maybe the age? Whatever the reason, they started talking louder and louder and that feeds on itself. In short order they were literally shouting across the table at each other (in fun, not anger). It's just a courtesy thing on the part of the group, not Maggiano's fault but it definitely made our visit much less enjoyable.

Love the vibe here. Very old school Italian; checkered table cloths, big portions, lots of space. Love the old photos.
Tasty food, and very engaging service.
Only draw back was a big delay in desert delivery

Food was good not the best but good. Service was terrible I asked 3 times for my water to be filled mean while the table behind me and in front of me never has an empty cup also the check was handed to my husband when we clearly told the water in our earlier conversations I was taking my family out for dinner he also asked me if I wanted to see the check before he charged my card as if... I will not be going back

Chicken parm was fantastic!
Family style dining was great for our party of eight.
Ended up waiting an extra 45 minutes past our reservation time because of a mix up but we really enjoyed the meal.

This location of the restaurant is perfect, less than a five minute walk from the Broadway theaters.

The food was very good, quite a bit of a variety. We all were very happy with the service in the food.

I had veal piccata. The meat was very tough and tasteless. The caprese was thick tomatoes with very little cheese. My husband did not line the lasagna. So average. Waiter was rushed.

Went during Dine out Boston week. When I asked the host for the menu he had no idea what I was talking about. I explained that I had seen the restaurant listed as one that was participating. He stated that their restaurant never participated in Dine out Boston week. I then showed him the list. He questioned a few of the waitstaff before checking with the manager and we were told that there was only one special that they’d offer us. A salad to share, a pasta dish to be shared and a dessert for $45.00. A confusing issue that shouldn’t have occurred. We opted for individual appetizers and entrees. The food and service were good and overall we enjoyed our experience. Definitely worth going to.

Unfortunately, we sat near a table of loud and obnoxious folks making crude comments and yelling f bomb and n bomb obscenities the whole time we ate dinner. Everyone in the dining room recognized it was a problem but no one said anything. Not the kind of language I wanted my 12 year old to be around for 90 minutes that I was there. Only place I go consistently every year on my birthday. Very disappointed
