Really bad Italian food that is overpriced and served in a dirty restaurant. Been to several chains like this but expected this would be much better. Thought perhaps El Fornio or Romanos that both have good food in nice setting. This place is on par with Olive Garden at double the price. Never will come back here again

Friend and I ordered the meal for two at Maggiano's. Wonderful spinach salad for appetizer. I asked for fresh mozzarella instead of blue cheese and Alfredo, our waiter was more than agreeable to make the substitution. For the entree, I had rotini with chicken and mushrooms and my friend had the four cheese ravioli. We sampled each other's entree and... More

All the drinks are good but The Mai Tai is my favorite cocktail but be careful because you will feel addicted and its really difficult to taste the alcohol ..the food quality is excellent. They are always really busy. You should make your reservation in advance. You will enjoy for sure!

We always enjoyed eating here. This time, the chef took some time to say hello to the guests. They surprised us with an appetizer for our celebration. Large portions for some dishes. Love it.

Wait staff was very friendly. As we left, at least 6 staff members thanked us for coming. Food was ample and good. Service time was excellent. This is a good mid-value place.

With season tickets this year to South Coast Rep, we find ourselves going to dinner in this area about once per month. More often than not we end up here at Maggianos, and for good reason. Not only is the food always very good, so is the service. We usually start our night with a cocktail in the bar and... More

Everything we tried was amazing. We all ordered off of the one for now and one for later section. One entree for lunch and another packaged to take home for one reasonable price. Our server was fun and friendly, he even gave us extra bread for our meals for later.
