They have a fantastic piano player/vocalist (Bobby Wilson)in the bar on Thursdays, Friday's and Saturdays. He plays all types of music including motown. In any other city, you'd pay $25.00 cover just to hear him. Eat in the bar if you can find a spare table. The entertainment alone makes up for the price of the great food, affording you and your date a reasonable night out.

Pros: Great musician, yummy food

Cons: Wish the music was there Sun-Wed as well

I have been to this restaurant 4 times since it opened in the area and am repeatedly impressed. We have to drive about 30 miles to get there and still go at least twice a year. I definately recommend a reservation. My favorite dish is the gnocchi with vodka sauce. This is an upscale Italian restaurant, so dont go here if you are expecting 'olive garden' style food and prices. If you want a great, out-of-the-ordinary italian restaurant with atmosphere.

Pros: Atmosphere, Food, Wine List/Bar Drinks
Cons: Need for reservation or expect a LONG wait.

If you love dark wood, cozy settings and outstanding food, you'll love this restaurant. Upon first entering the bar, I was impressed by the warm and intimate atmosphere--a nice change from the twenty flashing TV's and and all you can drink drafts. I ordered the chocolate martini, my favorite, and was not disappointed. Drink in hand, we were escorted to our table where we were greated by a very knowledgable and fun server. His recommendations: the chicken marsala and the lasagna. Along with the zucchini fritti, another personal favorite, these selections were excellent. Rich and creamy, the lasagna melted in my mouth. The zucchini was crisp and served with a decadent dipping sauce. The portions are huge, even the half sizes, so we didn't have room for dessert. It didn't matter. The meal was worth it.

Pros: Ambience, Service, Food Quality

Cons: Parking, A Bit Pricy

The service was indifferent at best, from the perfunctory greeting of the hostess to the desultory efforts of the waitress, but, compared to the ratings given other Cincinnati restaurants, it probably merits something in the 8.5 to 8.8 range.

I had read a few reviews of Maggianos and decided to try it out. The decor & atmosphere is more towards the upscale crowd (compared to Olive Garden, Bravo). The food was OK, but not worth the price or dining experiance. The wait staff seemed like they could care less about refills or getting the meal right. The food was luke-warm when we finally got served. The lasagna was OK, but too bland tasting for me and way too much ricotta.I would recommend going to Ferraris, Olive Garden or Bravo for a good Italian meal.

PROS: decor
CONS: price, food wasn't good

We very rarely eat inside; our recommendation: get this food "to go." While Maggiano's is definitely on the pricey side, the portions are huge. My personal fave: linguini in either red or white clam sauce.
