Yes, you can find better Italian food in Boston, but Maggiano's by far has the capacity to provide service and accommodate large groups that smaller, local places cannot. On marathon weekend it's impossible to find a place to eat, and each time Maggianos has taken...More

Very welcoming staff. It's a big place but still cosy. Good starters (calamares & sausage) and then pretty good mains too - Lasagnas and filet mignon with risoto. Very deal.

The largest area of the city, Downtown is rich with
historical and iconic sites in Boston. Stroll through
one of Boston’s most famous green spaces, the Boston
Public Gardens, check out and make way for duckling
statues, picnic under a beautiful tree overlooking the
pond, and walk over the iconic footbridge where,
during summer time, you will catch a swan boat toting
children and eager tourists through the pond. Have

Not sure if pastas was house made but the food was very good. They seem like they added a little love to it as well.
