The service here has always been excellent and I think it's due to the training. Great big booths, always a popular spot for celebrations with a few private rooms available. Anytime I've been dissatisfied they always made it right. Delicious food in an elegant yet welcoming atmosphere - good wine selection too! Sign up for coupons ;-)

Received many compliments from guests after having a baby shower at Maggiano's Little Italy, in Hackensack, NJ. The Ambiance of this restaurant is very attractive. The staff were very helpful and service was very good. Somewhat priced high for a brunch baby shower, however it's central location in Bergen County was a plus.

My wife and I are trying to eat healthier and both ordered from their lighter menu options. In this case healthier meant bland and tasteless. We will not be back.

While the food is good (average) here, it just seems that most of their selections are breaded & fried. If you're going with a group, the food comes out in large platters and served "family style". So therefore it's hard to select a more healthy option, if there actually is one. The other food that takes up most of their... More

I usually love to go to Maggiano's for my birthday dinner, but this time I was disappointed. I think our waitress was working on too many tables at once and we were all having family style. We asked for another helping of one of the dishes with shrimp and it never came!! I had a taste of it originally, but... More

Great atmosphere, wonderful service and delicious food. Substantial variety of food selection and very generous portions. Plenty of parking at the mall garage. A definite winner.

I was hoping this wouldn't be yet another chain that served food that tasted like it was served straight from the microwave. Unfortunately, my fears were confirmed upon tasting the chicken and shrimp dish with pasta. It was very salty and the pasta had no flavor. If you like fish, there's very little variety on the menu (salmon cooked 5... More

My husband took me here for my birthday! It was an evening about 7pm and the restaurant was not crowded despite being in a very busy mall area. We were seated right away, service was prompt and the food was delicious! He had lasagna and I had butternut squash ravioli. On top of it all because we ordered family style... More

I went once to this place and never returned. We had to wait for over 30 minutes to get our orders. There seemed to be no staff!!! Food was not the greatest and paid a lot more money.
