This is my all time favorite place... classy atmosphere... and great Italian-style dining where you get to order 2 of each course... also love having all the to-go bags so we can enjoy the leftovers!

I can't fathom what folks that rate this place highly are thinking. Given the fantastic array of great neighborhood Italian options, why would you go to McItaly unless your tastebuds are on a siesta? To be more specific, the whole Maggiano's equation is off in my opinion. They attempt to overcome the quality issue with shear quantity - pounds and pounds of pasta smothered in bland sauces that could have come from a can. Couple this with long waits and chain store, suburban trendy decor, swirl and voila - you have a poor dining experience! The one positive thing that I can say is that the wait staff are uniformly excellent and highly attentive.

Run, don't walk from Maggiano's Little Olive Garden!

I don't know how many times I said "WOW" when I first visited Maggiano's. The service is awesome. The food is just wonderful and so plentiful. Everything was just perfect. It's great that we have a Maggiano's in Wauwatosa WI now!!

Every time we visit we are reminded why we dislike it. The food isn't anything great, sure the portions are huge but thats just that much more bad food. The food is expensive. The wine list is safe with all the popular favorites and nothing new to try. The service is rushed. Don't order your meal too quickly, they love to bring it out while you are still working on your salad.

There are so many great Italian places out there & we have no idea why none are in the Schaumburg area... hence the appeal of this place.

I received a bonus at work, in the form of a Lettuce Entertain You gift card. Maggiano's was one of the only restaurants that seemed doable to me, so off we went with two other couples. Their Family Style feast was great! You order two main courses and appetizers and desserts and pass it around, family style. It was so delicious and I cannot wait to go back. Had it not been for the gift card, I am not sure how long it would have taken me to discover this place! I am so glad I did.

I would have to say Ive been to Maggianos a lot in my day and I fear they are becoming a statistic of over franchising. It seemes when a restaurant franchises and become bigger and bigger the food gets worse and worse, (ie:Cheesecake factory). \In short, the food was not fresh and cold, poor quality and an overall bad experience....

On a Saturday, the wait was 2 hours long. The staff was really nice and apologetic about it. Our waitstaff was experienced and knew the menu. The appetizers were decent (tomato and mozzarella, mozzarella marinara). The entrees were delicious (chicken saltimbocca, chicken marsala). The portions were huge and tasted great as leftovers! This is the best Maggianos location in the Chicago area definitely. The entrees at the other locations are not prepared as well.

We went to this resturant for my father in laws 60th birthday party and it was everything and more than we had hoped for. The Chicken Parmesan was the best we have ever had!!! It was very juicy!!!! We can't wait until we go back. Just remember when you plan on going go with a group of people to get the family style and don't forgot to make reservations.

I wouldn't say that this is authentic Italian food but it is tastey. I reccomend their stuffed mushrooms and bruchetta. There calamari is not the best. All of their pastas are very flavorful and the portions are very large. You can usually get a half order and share that with another person. They also have a Corner Baker connected to some of the locations. They have great soups and sandwiches with fast service!

This restaurant has a upscale feeling to it without breaking the bank. The food and service was superb. The whole dining experience was exceptional. They have an actual powder room smelling very nice and a bearer holding paper towels to you. You feel very pampered. A can't go wrong place.

Take it from and Italian, this place will make you feel like you are in Italy yourself. My favorite there are the baked clams. Everything else here is still really good.

This is a great family restaurant with great food. They may be a bit pricey, but their portions are huge! I always get their calamari as an appetizer and try different pastas for the main course. This is definitely a restaurant to go to for a night out with friends! Must see!

I'm used to eating at the Tuscany in Wrigleyville. Maggiano's food is nowhere near as good. There portions are much bigger, but their prices are high as well. I've also been to quite a few italian restaurants in NYC's little Italy area. This isn't great italian food.

By far the best maggiano's is in the Streets of Woodfield. For a chain restaurant, the food is extremely tasty. Of course, the wait is insane most of the time, at least two hours, so you better have some shopping to do while you wait.
Tables outside overllok a small pond, very nice atmosphere.
