Best family style dining for four

Enormous portions on family style dinners for four. Everything we ate was great. Will definitely return. This review is for Woodland Hills only.

Nice Spot, Not So Good Grub

The place itself is very nice and the staff is GREAT! But..the food is less than acceptable. The pasta was mushy and the sauce left something to be desired. They need to work on the food and they could be a great spot.

I don't get it

Being italian AND from a major Italian city (Chicago), I still fail to see the real greatness of Maggiano's food. It's family style, the portions are big, and the vibe is always good but back home, it's just a big scene - not the best Italian food around. Worth the trip but not for the food so much than for the atmospehere.

This place is very warm with an atmoshphere that is so desirable that you'll want to come back when you have a group of people you'd like to eat with. This really is a rare find combining the wonderful elements of the Italian dining experience: food, atmosphere, good prices & wine!

Great place for special events!

We recently held a family reunion at Maggiano's at The Grove, and everyone is still raving about it!! The food was wonderful, the service superb, and the location and decor is ideal for special events. From the banquet manager to the wait staff, we could not have asked for more personalized and professional service. I recommend it to everyone, and can't wait for them to expand to Northern California!

Just Like the Windy City!

Being from Chicago, this is one restaurant that serves up Italian dishes like I'm used too. The taste is very consistent as to that of the Chicago chains which makes me not miss home so much anymore! Try the Maggiano's Salad, it's heavenly!!!

Ben Fatto!

Forget that this restaurant is part of a larger national chain. Maggiano's (at the Grove) is an excellent restaurant in its own right. The atmosphere is incredible; I've spent many a summer evening in the back, thinking that I was back in Tuscany. The drinks are great, the wine list respectable and the service is excellent (say hi to Elle). But what really makes Maggiano's is the food. Large, flavorful portions (although the calamari was a bit bland) are the norm. The steak with balsamic reduction might be the best steak in LA (no exaggeration). Overall, there are worse ways to spend your money. Would recommend highly.

Great place for a relaxing late lunch!

We had the most incredible lunch at Maggiano's! In a beautiful setting of dark woods and spacious airy windows, we comfortably enjoyed some spectacular Tuscan wines with their house breads and outstanding ceasar salad (the small was HUGE and happily shared). We then tried the melt in your mouth seafood pasta (which would have easily served at least 3...) and the most delicous 4 cheese ravioli drizzled with a tomato pesto sauce that was really out of this world! We also noticed they have some gorgeous party rooms upstairs to accomodate a small get together or an entire reception. We went back the following evening and enjoyed a late light dinner in their cool bar (with piano man playing in the corner...sounded alot like billy joel...) They make a very good martini, too!

Fine Italian Cusine

Maggiano's has replaced Olive Garden for me. The food here is authentic Italian food, taste's great. Serving sizes are BIG! Bring your appetite. If a romantic evening is what you want, Maggiano's is the place.

Maggiano's is delicious! the atmosphere is sophisticated yet comfortable.. I went to the one in woodland hills, but i am sure they are similar enough. try the maggiano salad with blue cheese.. and the pasta arrabiata. it's all good..

Comfy, cozy, and fun

Best Chicken chop salad I have ever had!! I love the decor. It has real live piano player on most nights. Its a great place to have big parties as the upstaris caters to private groups. You'll have a good meal here.

Wait and See

Even though it's barely been open a couple months, this place is always hopping. The CBS crowd throngs here after work for the mondo martinis. Be careful, 'cause those things are lethal.
