Maggiano's is an Italian restaurant chain. In this review we're reviewing the Maggiano's Memorial City Mall restaurant. You will read about the food, experience, customer service experience and overall impression. Here we go!

What is Maggiano's?

This Italian restaurant I first discovered in San Antonio, Texas. A new shopping district was built several years ago called The Rim and Maggiano's was one of the restaurants in the area.

I've visited several locations and the overall theme and decor is the same. It's dark and has a luxurious feel to it. I haven't experienced the same in other restaurants and this really makes it stand out.

The Food

They serve Italian food. Whether you're a nut for lasagna, seafood pasta, ravioli or other Italian favorites, you will surely find what you love here.

The food is delicious.

The location we visit in Memorial City Mall serves all our favorites. We have had...

  • Mushroom ravioli
  • Chicken piccata
  • Meatballs
  • Spaghetti and meatballs
  • Chocolate cake

The appetizers/starters selection is plentiful. We usually get the meatballs and it comes with three huge meatballs with marinara sauce and herbs. It's delicious and truthfully you don't even need pasta to enjoy with it but if you do, they serve the the same meatballs in their spaghetti and meatballs entree which we've also enjoyed here.

The desserts are also mouthwatering and we enjoy the chocolate cake. It's a rich, lush and moist chocolate cake. Not too dense, very moist and super delicious. It's rich so you won't be able to eat it in a sitting. When we order takeout and get this cake, my husband and I split one piece and eat it over a few days. It's very good.

Now, the entrees!

Your meal comes with bread, parmesaan cheese and herb-infused olive oil. The bread is crusty and presliced. You just rip a slice from the loaf and dip it into the oil. It's really good and fits well with the kind of food they serve. I even dip the bread into the pasta sauce and enjoy it that way.

And, if you're like me, you might also eat the bread with your pasta, making a little pasta sandwich. I promise you it' delicious so definitely try it!

The chicken piccata is served in a huge portion with two large chicken breasts seasoned to perfection. They come with a spaghetti in a brothy, lemony sauce with capers and spinach. Super delicious!

This is light and full of flavor. I never order chicken dishes from restaurants but this looked so good on the menu, I tried it and now I eat it every time!

My husband recently had the mushroom ravioli. It came with a creamy sauce and he loved it. His only disappointement was that he didn't order a double portion!

The Service

Super friendly staff. We always feel welcomed and comfortable when going to Maggiano's. I ate there just yesterday and the staff member who helped me so super friendly, all smiles and patient with me as I went through the new online checkout process. You won't be disappointed by the staff or service.

Overall impression

I can't rate Maggiano's anything but 10/10. It's a little expensive so for lunch expect to pay around $35 to $50 and dinner can go up to $60+ depending on what you order. My little chicken dish is around $20 alone. But, the food is definitely worth it. You'll enjoy huge portion sizes and they commonly run the buy one/take one promotion where you order one entree and you get one free to take home!

If you're in the Greater Houston area and you're craving Italian food, you've got to try Maggiano's. They have a few locations in Houston but I recommend the Memorial City location which my family frequents. Enjoy!
