We compared this Maggiano's to the one we went to in Buckhead, Atlanta, Georgia. That was one of the most memorable restaurants in terms of atmosphere and food. The Maggiano's in Columbia MD was, in contract, noisy, one could harldy hear the dinner partner and much less elegant feeling. The food... an appetizer of mussels was very good with a deeply developed broth with added white beans. The lasagna was very good, meaty and hearty with a good sauce. The meal special offered a "take home" matching lasagna which we declined. The lemon butter salmon was, conversely, disagreeable. It was dry, overcooked and lacked any depth of flavor. The dish was served on cooked spinach with nothing else. There was complimentary bread with an olive oil dipping sauce which was decidedly vinegarey, instead of the typical garlic dipping oil. The bread was good and crusty, the oil, not so good. The restaurant was pricey for the atmosphere and flavor.

from Westminster MD to Columbia, especially for my favorite "Grilled Chicken Caprese Salad. Everyone should try this delicious treat. Other great dishes I recommend; Aptzr. Chicken/Roasted flat bread, Eggplant Parmesan, and Mom's Lasagna. Of course, you can find your own favorite and with great staff and friendly service it will be a treat worth your trip.

Convenient and delicious Italían cuisine. Each dining experience at Maggianos is always pleasant from the tasty food to the courteous service. Nice environment for meals with family and friends. Super glad that Maggiannos is in the Mall in Columbia to satisfy my cravings for comfort Italian food.

We have been to Maggiano's Little Italy restaurants in 4 different cities but this is the first time we feel moved to make a comment as we had a good time at this restaurant located in the Columbia Mall on the Little Patuxent Parkway in Columbia, Maryland. Indeed, it was one of the best visits to one of the chain's eateries—we were seated immediately by the host and the warm welcome and attentiveness of our professional wait staff named Terry made our visit very pleasant. We were pleased that the Eggplant Parmesan has retained its strong flavor, though the Vegetarian Penne Primavera could use a little more spice. It is nice that the restaurant still offers the “On the House Classic Pastas” series, where the guest dines in and gets to choose a pasta to take home. We couldn’t help reminisce on those days when the portions served were much more substantial and at lower prices but I guess this is the trend.
