Have eaten here three times and have not been disappointed in anything. The flatbreads are awesome. They look so simple, but both of the ones I have eaten have been fantastic. Main courses have always been ample and tasty. If you think the food is too expensive, get some of their classic pasta dishes and you get another one to take with you. I get at least 3 or 4 meals at home, because I always take home some of the initial entree as well, because the servings are very generous. Desserts are large as well, so I would suggest sharing one as opposed to eating one individually. I tried the apple Crostada tonight and it was the best pastry I have had in a long time. Who would have thought that an Italian place could remake apple pie so well.
As to service. I have been lamenting the poor service that has been in evidence for the last couple of years in restaurants and couldnt figure out why with jobs being harder to get and tips being such a big part of the job would wait staff be so surly and uncaring. But not here. There is ample staff and the service is excellent and not intrusive. They offer great suggestions done in such a way that you dont feel that they have been pushed by management to do so, but are really concerned with you having a great time and the best food.
I live a bit aways from any Maggiano's so it is such a treat when I go. As I said in the beginning, I have never been disappointed and it is my favorite Italian place. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to this gem of a place.

All I can say is....WOW!!!!! I know, I have seen some not so stellar reviews, but it is their opinion. They may not have been born and raised in Houston, but it's not their fault. My wife and I had our fifth anniversary dinner there and it was awesome. It was awesome because it was prom night and our service was excellent. We were sat right away at our table, or servers were friendly and fast, and the food was delightful. Reginald and his co-server(I cannot recall his name) were the friendliest servers I believe we have ever had at any restaurant in the Houston metro area. We primarily eat out in the North Houston, Spring, Woodlands area, and our service here at Maggianos was second to none. We had no problem getting our drink orders brought out quickly and cold, Reg and his co-server were very patient with our odd ordering style, and again the food was magnificent. My wife and I enjoyed the atmosphere, and did I forget to mention we enjoyed the food too. We will definately be coming back to Maggianos, and more than likely with a larger crowd. Thank you Maggianos for making our anniversary very memorable.

I had my 21st birthday here, and it was one of my most memorable birthday party ever! My friends had a great time, and the food was delicious and just right for their price! The servers probably had a little hard time with us because there were about over 25 people in my party, but they definitely tried their best to make sure they serve us right. The second time I came back, food was delicious and our server was very friendly and nice, so either way, I still give them a 5 star :)

I have been to several Maggianos around the country, but the Houston restaurant is by far the best. I love the Rigatoni D, and the Chicken Picatta. Everything is good here. We make it a point to go at least once a month. I would go more if I didn't live so far away. It's worth the drive!

We love Maggianos!!
With great service, top notch food and an always bust restaurant, my family and I always have a blast going to Maggiano's.
It's nice to have a convenient location close to home where we can all go and get seated reasonably quickly. Some nights the staff may be a bit slow seating you, but typically the waiter will be hustling enough to make up for any lag on their part.
My daughter loves their vegetarian dishes just like Txammom but i'm a spaghetti and meatballs kind of guy ;)
If you're like me, my daughter or Txammom i think you will be pleased with Maggiano's on Post Oak.

When the Olive Garden grows up it wants to be just like Maggiano’s. The menu is essentially the same, but instead of screaming children flinging spaghetti across the tables and college kids scrounging their last pennies for unlimited breadsticks in the suburbs, it will have a bar and be in a posh urban surrounding where it will draw middle-aged woman wearing dresses that last fit them well over a decade ago and their eager husbands searching to consume as many carbohydrates as possible for the minimum dollar yet still make the middle-aged ladies feel as though they are being ‘taken out.’ Whew. That was a long sentence.
I’ve actually been here several times as I dated a fellow whose family insisted on giving him Maggiano’s gift cards. Never one to turn down free food, I went along. As with most family-style Italian joints, the food is more ample than tasty and the usual Italian American items fill the menu. I did try a special once, the butternut squash ravioli. Unfortunately it tasted like cream sauce. After a few other tries I came to the conclusion that there are two flavors here: red sauce and cream sauce. The dishes have different names but they will all end up tasting like one of those two things, so pick your poison.
While I cannot convince you not to try Maggiano’s when the situation calls for feeding a large group family-style Italian, but I highly encourage you to consider cooking this cheap and simple food a feasible alternative.
