Maggiano's is part of a chain, and this location is in the heart of the Galleria area. There is plenty of parking, and the dining area is spacious, ample and well air-conditioned. There is additional sitting area around the bar. Services is attentive, prompt and efficient. Management is quite responsive to individual requests. The appetizers are well-prepared and tastefully presented. Portions are generous; each order is probably sufficient for two people. The fried calamari were excellent, while the fried zucchini were exceptionally good. These were thin slices, as opposed to the sticks usually offered in other restaurants. the aioli on the side was great. The stuffed mushrooms were large, and the appetizer portion was enough for four people: remember, the mushrooms will grow and expand in your stomach and so will the stuffing. The Marguerita flatbread was delightful: very thin crust, with just the right amount of toppings. The lobster carbonara was superb, but the portion was huge; I ended up bringing 2/3 home. The spaghetti marinara was very good, although the marinara was somewhat watery. The chicken piccata and veal marsala were both tasty and generous. The wine list offers good coverage of all Italian wine-producing areas and some from California and other US regions.

when I am in Houston and staying next door to Maggiano's at the Hilton, I usually end up here.
From the appetizers to the cocktails. the service is great.
as far as the meals. the food is phenomenal. we've had the family style dinning as well as the ala cate meals. you will not be disappointed. one of my favorite's is the Salmon. the desserts are off the chart too. my kids love the Chocolate cake

Good food tonight for dinner. Two starters, four mains and a bottle of Pinot Grigio and two soda = $150. Good was good but a bit pricey overall on reflection.
