At Maggiano’s, our beautiful private rooms have the warm and inviting old-world feel of 1940’s Little Italy, yet with all of the modern amenities and functionality you would expect to meet all your wedding or rehearsal dinner dreams. With 7 private rooms we can accomodate 10-130 guests seated for dinner. Our culinary trained chefs prepare generous portions, which are made from scratch with only the freshest ingredients. Our signature is our family-style dining. The menu items are presented formally by our banquet staff and then passed between guests. The portions are unlimited so every guest gets as much as they like. You’ll find that the family-style setup brings a sense of casual fun to the otherwise formal surroundings and fosters a great level of interaction among the attendees.

It took us a little time to find a venue for our Rehearsal Dinner after our original venue fell through due to spacing issues. Maggiano's was one of the BEST decisions we made regarding our Wedding Weekend. Everything from the planning and budgeting to the actual event was perfect: the private room accommodated the group and mingling so well; the staff made sure we had everything we needed (a bartender even went looking for advil for me!); and the food was incredible. Whenever another course came out with even more food, everyone was in awe--and even more so when they tasted each item. We plan to become regulars here and can't wait for our next meal!

Maggiano's was what we expected, but we were not entirely pleased with our experience. We all know what the food is (average Italian food from a chain restaurant). We selected the venue for our rehearsal dinner because there were very few options for a private dining room for a party of about 60 on a Saturday night in downtown Boston.

Communication prior to the event was not the best. It seemed that every time I e-mailed them, I got a response from a different person. It would have been nice to have just one point of contact that was familiar with the details of our event. I never heard from them except when I owed them money.

When we arrived, we sat down with the staff to go over the schedule for the evening, and everything was agreed to. Despite that, the entrees were very late. The staff then told us that it was because the restaurant had been dealing with a broken oven for quite some time. So why was that not brought up when the scheduled to discussed? We could have spaced things out differently.

Later in the evening, the fire alarm began going off repeatedly. The staff told us, "Don't worry about it, it happens all of the time." Seriously? It ruined the ambiance of our event for a good 10-15 minutes. No one seemed to know how to turn it off, and we just had to wait it out.

I will give Maggiano's credit for the following things: 1) plenty of food (and they let us take home the leftovers); 2) ability to accommodate dietary restrictions such as gluten-free. I think this is a good option for events like family get-togethers and informal parties, but I don't think they're well equipped for classier events.

Wow, what a night! But the excellence from Maggiano's didn't start there. Once we agreed upon a (very fair) contract with Maggiano's over a year before our wedding reception, there was never a mention of additional cost again. everything we asked for, we were given. They were flexible, responsive, and obviously working as hard as possible to make our special day as memorable as they could. The staff was plentiful and attentive, the food was DELICIOUS, and our guests are still talking about how much fun they had at our wedding. Maggiano's made us feel like ours was the only wedding in Boston. They knew us by name, and worked tirelessly, even the next day, to do everything they could to please us. Our original contract was but a shadow of our reception once you factor in everything Maggiano's did above and beyond to make it amazing. Two thumbs up, 10 out of 10, and our thanks!

This venue kind of fell into our lap and we are so thrilled it did. There were so many things that were up in the air with the wedding plans, but Maggiano's took care of so many details that I was able to relax the day of my wedding knowing that they were taking care of everything! Plus the food was great! We had a small wedding and the room that we were given was perfect it felt like a real celebration and the amount of space was perfect! The gentleman that assisted us throughout the day was fantastic! I felt like a princess!

The only down side to having our rehearsal dinner at maggianos was that they never called us back and their banqueting staff was rarely available, even during their listed banquet hours.

On the plus side, they accommodated some allergies our guests had (without any hesitation, hassle or extra cost for us), and even sent us home with left overs (perfect snack food the night before the wedding). Their service was impeccable and they left the timing up to us, communicating through each course of the meal. They were overall great, just keep calling them.

I had my wedding and ceremony at this restaurant. I rented two rooms and they provided the centerpieces and a small system to have my music played on. The room was lovely and I was very happy. The quality of service and responsiveness was a 4 as I lost some gift envelopes the night of the wedding when I left to visit my grandmother before desert as she was to ill to make it. They also set up more tables than were needed but my guest didn't really dance so it ended up not being a problem.

The staff was very sorry for my loss and due to me not knowing of the lost envelopes until I returned from my honeymoon there was nothing that could be done.

My overall experience was wonderful and if I had to do it all over again I would. I would have just collected the envelopes earlier and gave it to the staff to put in there safe.

When my husband and I were trying to figure out our wedding details changed week to week. Our small destination wedding changed 10 times. When my parents demanded a city wedding we ran in the problem most bride and grooms have, limited budget, too many people to invite and city vendors have high costs. My parents gave a certain budget to use for the wedding and the rest was on us. My husband didn’t want to cut the list so we needed to figure out how use the budget for 160 people. We also had our own limited budget and needed to be creative with our spending.

Maggiano's was our favorite place to eat. We go there with friends a couple times a year. When my husband jokingly said look there, I checked their prices and it met our budget and menu needs. Our needs were open bar, 4 course meal, venue for 160 people, $60 cost per person all inclusive and a venue in the city. To have it at Maggiano's we had to compromise on some details. 1. we had a lunch, 2 we had only beer and wine open bar and we didnt have an onsite wedding planner provided by the venue, all for under $60 per person.

It all worked out perfectly. Getting creative with the Italian theme, we hired a Frank Sinatra wedding singer which set the tone perfectly. We hired a wedding day planner which was worth every penny. And we met our budget.

Maggiano's provided a 4 course family style meal unlike any other wedding meal we have had. The service and banquet servers were the best. They had personality, attentiveness and amazing service. They interacted with the guests and made the whole ambiance of the day perfect. Our banquet manager Kelly was easy to work with, helped planned the day perfectly and understood our budget needs. If you have alot of items to bring in the day before the wedding, I would reconsider the location. I had to have the wedding planner bring everything in the morning bc Maggiano's doesn't have storage.

Every guests is still talking about the wedding, the food and the service. for a different twist on a wedding reception I would highly recommend Maggiano's.

We used the private room in Maggianos for our rehearsal dinner and it was amazing! The service was fantastic, the food was incredible...and we felt like we had the place all to ourselves! Not only was the restaurant accomondating but we really felt like they wanted our night to be special...the menu was fantastic and the portions were unbelievable!
