Family style meal for a family of 2 adults and 3 kids (12 and under) is a deal! So much food leftover that it ends up being at least 2 more meals. We opted for the bruschetta and meatballs for the 2 apps, and split the mains between a chicken, grilled salmon and 2 pastas (shrimp fettuccine and a ravioli). Since this was a birthday celebration for one of our kids, they even brought out a free lemon cookie dessert as well as the standard dessert platter.
Service was a bit casual and not rushed, and we really appreciated the time the staff took to address our allergen concerns (peanut and treenuts). The chef came out and asked questions, and confirmed which wishes were safe, etc.
And overall great experience and good for peace of mind with allergen issues.
Note: in the past they had a dessert with pistachios, but that was not the case this visit.

This is our annual Birthday restaurant and has been for many years. Myself and 2 of my best friends have birthdays near each other and this year we had the best waiter ever, Brock.
He took a picture of us and provided each of us a framed copy. What a wonderful service.
Besides that, the food and portions are always awesome. I love the take home deals they offer as well. Great place!!!

The stuff was awesome. They treated my wife like queen, for her treatment of cancer. Wine selection was the best

The ambiance of the restaurant was impressive. The waiter was attentive to customers needs. I ordered the baked Ziti and had to take some home because it was so much. The food was hot and very tasty.
I love their bread that is served at the table; Just pour a little olive oil and shake some grated Parmesan cheese on the bread and enjoy. Also, I would recommend the Margherita flat bread for appetizers. Full of flavor and delicious.

This place is wonderful! I have been craving Italian food since I moved to NC and haven’t been able to satisfy it until I ate here. Our server Nia was absolutely amazing. She made sure we had what we needed and suggested a wonderful wine and the lasagna. We will definitely be returning without hesitation!

Food is always great. Ambience and interior in this Maggianos in Durham is the best compared to the other branches we have been to. We also have the best server last week. Brocks is the man. He should set an example for the rest.

Went with my son for his 20th birthday as we had never been to this restaurant and the food was great. Our server is great explanation of the menu attentive fast and even proactive and asking if we were celebrating anything and then without even knowing helped us celebrate by bringing my son a plate of beautifully arranged lemon cookies with a berry into candles he was surprised and the cookies were tasty so we loved it. Will definitely be going back again as the food was great large portions very flavorful and reasonably priced.

I have been thinking all night about the words to describe how much our servers small action last night meant to us. After explaining the menu, he asked if we were celebrating anything. I said we were in the area because we had spent the day at Chapel Hill while my fiancés dad was having surgery. He was still in the OR when we went to get some dinner and take a break from the hospital. The young man understood what it was like to be in our shoes. Towards the end of the meal he came with desert menus, explaining he told the manager about the situation and they wanted to offer us a dessert, free of charge. In the grand scheme of things, I know a dessert wasn’t going make or break the business, but the kindness of the action was so pure and sweet. He shared that he was unable to be with and talk to his grandmother during her illness and said he was going to keep us in prayer. We were so thankful for his words and actions. It meant so much to us. Thank you.

Tried Maggiano's out for a girls night out. Drinks were spectacular. Our waiter was so helpful when it came to picking out our meal. We opted to go with the family style meal. It was so great you got to choose 2 appetizers, 4 entrees and it included 2 salads and a plate of desserts. It fed 5 people with leftovers! Great price for the amount of food. I liked the fact we could sample all different plates that we may would have not originally picked.

Incredible service. The server mixed up some olive oil, pepper, and parmesan on a plate for me to do my warm bread into.
I ordered the 2 beef tenderloin medallions. I was upsold on a salad and chose the Maggiano salad.
The salad was okay... a little hard to eat and nothing too special. I don't think it was worth the price tag.
The beef medallions were very tender and tasty. I enjoyed eating them, as well as the mashed potatoes they were served with.

My siblings and I celebrated our parents birthday party 🥳🎉 here. The atmosphere and service was wonderful. They had no problem serving our extended families. The restaurant was completely full and we still received great service. The food kept coming and it was delicious 😋. Thank you so much from our family!!!🤗🤗

Friends brought is here for a murder mystery dinner.
The food was good, lots of choices. 3 appetisers, 4 main course selections and 3 deserts. The apps and main courses were family style, large plates to pass around the table. The dessert was 3 small samples for each person. We all wished there was a chocolate sample.
The murder was unique, my first time at something like this. Successful solving of the mystery requires you to investigate/interview many other people in the room. Not my thing. We did get to meet some nice people at our table.
All in all, it was a good time with good Italian food and good friends.
I will eat here again, don't think I'd do the murder mystery again.

Had a nice lunch date here. Portions were nice and my food was great. I did try my guys chicken parmesan,not a fan though he highly enjoyed it. He did suggest the stuffed mushrooms have less breadcrumbs as he couldn't really taste the rest. Our server was amazing, will be back.

Usual stop for my daughters birthday meal. I had the salmon with herb and lemon with the wedge salad, and she had the ravioli.
The meal was great as usual. The salmon had very good flavor and moist. Cooked nearly perfect.
My daughters ravioli did not stand a chance.
