Restaurant Review: Maggiano’s at Cumberland Mall

For Valentine’s Day my sweetheart wanted to go to Maggiano’s at Cumberland Mall. I usually enjoy going to this restaurant as it seems like a great value, it is kid friendly and is so close to our home in Vinings.

When we went to make reservations the only time available was 5:00 and we booked via (always quick and easy).  That’s OK as my date gets his bath around 7:00 and is usually in bed by 8:00pm. Also, they sent me a $10 coupon for my next visit which is nice.

The children’s menu is varied and is only $4.95 including their ice cream. We always end up taking the leftovers home for a second meal there is so much food.

As far as the quality I’ve seen a degradation since the last time we were there:

  • I remember them using fresh grated parmesan at the table before and now you have to request it and its in a shaker – ugh, can’t eat that type.
  • Also, they used to have the balsamic vinegar at the table for your bread and that had to be requested as well.
  • Additionally I believe the quality of that has been reduced or my taste buds are becoming more discriminating.

I had the chicken piccata which was good with a side of angel hair pasta and Chase had the penne alfredo with the fake parmesan cheese.

It was packed and service was mediocre—perhaps a fluke because it was Valentine’s Day?? My recommendation is that Maggiano’s is good for “family friendly” meals, but not the type of Italian I’d be craving regularly.
