I like the one in costa mesa better!!! This one seems a lot smaller. The day I went wasn't busy for this restaurant and yet the service was extremely slow. Our waitress kept forgetting to bring our bread, and refill drinks. So it was just alright...

this used to be a reliable place to have an enjoyable meal. they have changed the menu to a family dining experience and taken some of my favorites off the menu. it was ok but definately not what it was a year ago, i guess the economy has caused them to have a much narrower selection, kinda reminds me of ""the sizzler"" of italian restaurants, so sad

Inattentive waitress, SLOW service - and this is while the restaurant is fairly empty. Just imagine what that means when it is crowded. The food...was so bad. Flavorless and had a weird aftertaste. What made it worse is that everyone who spoke to us, including our waitress, kept telling us ""how good the food is"". Come on don't lie, that's false advertising. THE worst Italian food I've ever tasted, and I've tasted a lot as I am a lover of Italian food. You can't even call it Italian food. DO NOT BE FOOLED by the fancy decorative atmosphere; you will regret it.

This is a first-rate, mid-priced restaurant.
Anyone who complains about this restaurant has something wrong with them or is possibly a competitior leaving negative comments.
I dine here a few times a year and the food is always great for traditional Italian American cuisine.
What makes this restaurant stand out is the restaurant's cool / romatic garden courtyard (request to be seated outside), it's quality of food, and a friendly and professional staff.
It's the best restaurant at the Grove that's not too hard on the pocketbook.
Definately a very nice dining experience!

You'd think a place like this coukd keep their bathrooms clean... I wonder what the kitchen looks like? Staff was too busy swapping head shots and audition stories to bring bread to my table. Seriously? The food was OK, poor attention to detail. The value is there for big eaters and their all-u-can-eat ""Family Style"" plan, but there too much wrong with the place to really enjoy the experience.

I ordered a drink three times. It never came. The waitress never brought plates for appetizers -- I had to get them myself. Nobody ever refilled the water. The menus weren't even picked up from the table. Simply horrible. There are so many good options at the Farmer's Market -- why would you waste your time at Maggianos? Overpriced, mediocre food, terrible service. Avoid at all costs.

The service... Perfect!
The service is professional, and the servers are genuine... ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!
The food comes out SO FAST! It's unbelievable.
It's hot & fresh.
THE MOST FLAVORFUL FOOD I'VE EVER HAD. Not overdone at all..Just right!
I am so picky..but this place was the best I've ever had! We started with the chopped salad w/chicken...Then had the Ziti with HUGE & TONS OF CHUNCKS OF Meat..and Crispy Grilled Salmon on Spinach, with the best juice!! I AM CRAVING IT AGAIN RIGHT NOW!
The restaurant & ambiance are sooo nice... and It's huge in there!! Walk around.. private rooms.. Big tables.. Cool, fun bar scene.. EXCELLENT GREETERS, SERVERS... Really top quality, in every aspect.
