THEEEEE BEST ITALIAN FOOD OUT THERE!!!!

.

We used Maggiano's for our wedding reception and we could not have had a better time. If we needed anything, the host was there to accommodate us immediately. When we were just trying to enjoy ourselves, we didn't even notice any of the staff. The food felt like it appeared out of nowhere and everything went very smoothly. I certainly recommend using Maggiano's for your wedding reception, rehearsal, event, or just for delicious food with the family.

I recently went to Maggianos over the weekend and my friends and I were impressed. The food and service was wonderful and despite the restaurant being fairly crowded and our waiter being busy with other tables, he took his time with us and never made us feel rushed. He was always there for refills and made sure our food was to our expectations. We look forward to our next visit there.

Pros: Great food & service

Maggiano's Little Italy is absolutely delicious. There food is among some of the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy and as someone who has been to Italy four times that's saying something. The stuffed mushrooms are mouth watering,

Pros: filling, decent italian, good dessert

Cons: crowded & loud, so so service, overrated

First, the good news. The food is good. Very good. The ambience and music are lovely. The staff is both informative and helpful. Now, the not so good news. If you like some attitude with that pasta, then this is the place to be. Each time I went to Maggiano's, I found them to have the "yeah, we're great, we know it, people love us, come or don't" approach. This really turned me off. I tried to get past it, and often did. However you may feel rushed to consume your dinner because on some nights, there are about 10,000 folks waiting to pounce on your table (or it just seems like 10,000). They are not mean-spirited here, and some folks are nice, but I felt like they could care less if I came back or not. Such a shame. My tip to Maggiano's is lose the 'tude and make everyone feel important. You never know who will write about you!

This place has decent apetizers, and very good salads.

Entrees are not good. Pastas are marginal.

Biggest complaint is the reservation policy. An eight o'clock reservation usually gets you seated about eight forty- five. They don't

If you think this is a good Italian restaurant, get a clue and try real authentic Italian food. Let's list the negatives.

1. The food is bad. I always hear about how much they give you. Well, a big portion of bad food is just more bad

I had the joy of dining at Maggiano's Little Italy. The food, service and ambience was just excellent! I recommend everyone to dine there if they desire fine Italian food. You will really get your money's worth.

I love the food they serve here! The "family-style" dining is great and lets you sample more than if you ordered one entree. Great atmosphere - and a nice little bakery to take home a few goodies. Just wish it were located closer

I don't love this restaurant and I'm always surprised to hear others rave about the food. I know of plenty of good places besides this one. From a business standpoint, it's classy and an alright place to take a client but I'd pick another

I've been to Italy and back a few times & I have to say that my dinner experience at Maggiano's ( at Oakbrook Terrace) was OUTSTANDING! I sat at the bar after the recommendation of the hostess and had the BEST Chicken Marsala in my LIFE...

Are you kidding? This assembly line tourist trap is one of Chicago's best Italian restaurants? It's fine for what it is -- bland and lots of tomato sauce. But with all the great and real Italian restaurants here, this is a gag to say

Classic Italian dishes are prepared in oversize portions or served family-style for not a lot of money. That means the atmosphere is noisy and bustling and the crowd diverse and spanning generations (that may or may not be a good thing,…
