Maggiano's has the best Italian cuisine. Their chicken picatta is excellent along with their Caesar salad. The tiramisu is one of the best we ever had and has the right balances of flavors. The restaurant has a very comfortable and welcoming ambiance.

Been to a few Maggiano's in different areas and this one was the best! Food was good. But I can't stress how great we were treated. Our waiter Michael was helpful, polite and knowledgeable. And the manager Josh was very friendly and showed concern to make sure we were happy. I will definitely be coming back my next visit!

We chose this place as it was only a block away from our hotel,it was casual enough after a long travel day and we are so glad we did! The food was absolutely amazing. We had spinach and chicken manicotti and the Riggatoni D. simply amazing flavors all around. Service was good and they went above and beyond when the... More

We love the Maggiano's in Chicago. Very traditional, the food is prepared with care and heart. Really good food. I love the vodca sauce, although in general I ask for the rigatoni D instead of the gnocchi, which they do immediately. But there are many tasteful options. Difficult to find one you won't like. A place to visit.

The food is amazing, the wine selection too. The service was professional, courteous and welcoming. My fiance' chose traditional pasta and I had a veal dish; both were prepared to perfection. I would highly recommend for a great Italian dinner in Chicago.

Amazing bread to start, awesome apps, some red wine, Frank Sinatra playing, some amazing Pasta and Steaks are great too. Great Italian go to - good service is hard to find these days - Italian restaurants still get it right! Particularly this one. Also love the store in Vegas too!

We had a fabulous dinner and then they brought out a plate decorated in chocolate the read Happy 18th Anniversary with delightful cookies and chocolate. The place was packed but... More

The food was okay, except for Maggiano's Salad which was great. We ate there one night then order two of the salads to go from their take away outlet and took the salads back to the hotel. The servings of their pasta were too large for me, so we had some left over pasta to eat along with the salads.... More

I expected more from this restaurant, when they served the calamari I pleased and looking forward to my main course, but the spaghetti and meatball was only average. Next trip I will look for something else!
