Absolutely loved the food. Our waitress was really friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back! We was there Dec 30th. I suggest making a reservation because we drove 40 minutes to get there, the day before, and we would have had to wait 3 hrs to get a table so we left and made a reservation for the next night. That was a weekend day, I can't say how easy it would be to walk in on weekday.

Elijah, Chef Tyler & Chef Greg were amazing Elijah was our waiter/server. He was very kind & attentive to us, providing excellent customer service. They start off with complementary bread with oil. Bread is soft, fresh and flavorful. Once you dip the bread in the oil, its a whole other level of eliteness. I ordered the Margherita Flatbread, Side Ceasar Salad & Chicken Parmesean. I told Elijah that I had a food allergy. Chef Tyler who prepared my Chicken Parm came out from the back to offer an alternative way to prepare the cutlet which was to pan sear it. Customer service was winning me over The margherita flatbread was so good. Side Ceasar Salad for the size still gave a good amount of salad. It came with crutons and fresh cheese and it was delicious. Great appetizer. My date ordered the Crispy Zucchini Fritte. Chef Greg who prepared the Fritte explained that because of the food allergy, he was making the Zucchini fritter differently and it worked out tremendously. The Crispy Zucchini was sinful and scrumptious. The Chicken parm finally comes out and the cutlet was huge. Best cutlet I have ever had. The breading was well meshed and immucalate. Chicken was tasty, moist and juicy and not tough and rubbery. The cheese was on point as well. For drinks, I had the Peach Fuzzy Bellini with the swirl. That was so tasty as well, especially with the puree. Ambience was an old school family restaurant vibe which I appreciated as well Maggianos is a must visit

We chose this location for our wedding night dining spot. All I can say is it was everything you could ask for in a dining experience. We were all thoroughly impressed with our waitress Nadia. Her personality was warm and inviting and she’s very knowledgeable about the menu. She even offered great selections. The food was fresh and tasted amazing. The restaurant staff were all nice and inviting. We spoke to the manager to compliment him on his restaurant. Don’t hesitate to dine here.

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.
