My evening at Maggianos

This is our third time dining at Maggianos and as always the food was excellent. There was a little girl at the table next to us screaming at the top of her lungs, but once she quieted down it became a much more pleasant evening.

OMG, Best Italian Ever, Even on Prom Night

Dined on April 24, 2016

We made a reservation for 8:30, we got there at 8 and was in by 8:35 , the waiter Miracle, was an absolute treasure. Because it was our first time there, Miracle explained the dishes to us that made them sound delicious. We placed our order, and the food came out hot like fresh out of the oven. The pasta melted in our mouths, the chicken franses was so tender I didn't need a knife . We ordered desert togo because we were stuffed from that fantastic meal. Miracle was prompt in getting our gift cards processed and brought the bill out minus the gift card balance. We left our server a generous tip and if we are ever in Charlotte again, we will definitely stop by there. It was prom night and we didn't feel rushed because people were waiting to get in.

Server was great. I lived in Italy for several years and commented about how a proper tiramisu should be made. Although we didn't order it for dessert he brought out a sample for us all to try because he wanted to get our comments. I really enjoyed that interaction. The food was better than I expected, and the take-home pastas are a great idea exclamation point

Dined on April 10, 2016

As always. The food is amazing. I personally always choose from the Chefs Menu, inside the cover of the menu, but the servers are always great about suggesting what they prefer. Always try the Seasonal Sangria. $24 for a pitcher. Great value and just the right amount to share.

Good Italian food

vip
Dined on March 26, 2016

We arrived for Saturday lunch and were promptly seated. Our server was attentive and efficient. We each tried a new dish. I have to be honest and say they weren't as good as they were advertised to be. I had the Nuzzos paccheri & Chicken sausage. It was just okay. I could eat it but I would never recommend it. My friend had a manicotti that was also just okay but it didn't look like any manicotti I've ever seen. In fairness, the waitress warned us that it would be prepared differently. Next time I'll stick with the chicken piccata on the light menu which is great. We each had a chocolate martini and nobody does those better than Maggiano's.

Noise vs. food

vip
Dined on March 25, 2016

If we did not like a couple of Maggiano dishes so well, the terrible noise would keep us away! Surely they can do some engineering to mitigate the noise. O this visit, there were scads of pre-toiler kids yelling all around us!

Friday night family dining

Dined on March 25, 2016

The restaurant was very loud, but it was a Friday night. The tables were too close together. We had to ask to be reseated and I saw another family do the same. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and nice, however he spoke to softly you had strain and almost read lips to know what he was saying. We chose family dining and all but one meal we ordered was good. The chicken piccata had no taste.

Pasta not cooked to even aldente

Dined on March 25, 2016

Past was so tough we had to cut with a knife. Lasagna was bland and boring. When we complained they did take off bill but when offered the take home we did not even want it. We have dined before but this was the worst experience there. Unfortunately we will not return anytime soon. Seems the quality has decreased.

Okay...could be better.

Dined on March 19, 2016

I must say that the service was excellent. That was the very best thing about Maggianos. The food only mediocre. My dinner, chicken parm, came out luke warm...not hot the way it should be. The chicken was a bit overcooked with a stingy serving of mozzarella cheese. The pasta was drowned in too much sauce. My husband had baked ziti, which was also not hot enough. The best part of this pasta dish was that he could take another home at no charge. All in all, Maggianos is just an okay restaurant.

Anniversary

Dined on March 12, 2016

We go here every anniversary, when we made reservations we noted it was our anniversary. However, the table they set us at was like being in Grand Central Station. The door that went to outside dining was there, steps to upper level there, all servers, all runners all hostess went by the table we were at. We were unable to talk to each other as it was constant motion and noise around us. Food, waitress all wonderful!

Dined on March 12, 2016

The food was really good, as usual. Got seated about 25 minutes after reservation time. Server seemed preoccupied and would disappear for long periods of time. (Saw other servers far more often at adjoining tables.) Was not the normal outstanding experience that we usually have at Maggianno's. Maybe an off night? Will give them a few months and try again.

Just So So

Dined on March 6, 2016

Our waiter was very attentive, especially to the children. Not an easy task as they were ages 6,4, and 2. He tried to accommodate all our needs. The kitchen/food preparation was a different story. Zuchinni frite was overcooked and dry as it definitely sat under a heat lamp for awhile. Fried mozzarella was ok; sauce prevented it from drying out but it too sat under a heat lamp. The mussells were old, smelled badly of dead fish, were chewy, and overall tasted badly. Waiter adjusted the tab by removing them from tab. Other entrees were ok. Maggianos tends to be a hit or miss type of place. Had very nice meals there and also had duds.

Why does Maggiannos not honor reservations?

vip
Dined on March 5, 2016

We made a 6:15 reservation & arrived at 6:00 & were told our reservation for a booth might take a few more minutes. 15 mins later we came back & were told it would be 45 more minutes by their staff. Why would I ever come back here when they dont honor reservations we left reserved at Georges on Open Table & had a great meal & Maggiannos lost $ 120.00
