Food was great and the drinks and great service.
Parking just hard in the area but there’s garages
Everything was delicious. The waiter was attentive. We didn’t feel rushed at all eating our meals. Overall it was a great experience. I’d come back to dine in here.
First off not what it use to be. Girl at front rude. Manager super nice. The space is beautiful as always. However, staff not wearing masks including cooks behind pizza counter. Service just okay. Prices are ridiculous and food mediocre.
This is a restaurant that needs to be added to the Michelin Star List. Mr. Vinny Bizati ( General Manager) his Captains, and Executive Chef, will definitely make this restaurant a Michelin Star in the near future. Will continue coming here with my family. Once again thank you all for an amazing experience.
Great food, great service and beautiful dinning area.
Celebrated my birthday and had a wonderful experience from start to finish. From the manager Anthony and the wait was spectacular. Made my day extra special, thank you
Lovely birthday dining experience. Menu has changed but food and service still outstanding. Our faves were the mushroom ravioli and the sea bass, pricey but delish!
Can’t wait to come back here. Food and drinks were great. Excellent service and the place is absolutely beautiful.
The food was awesome the service was on point but the was abite prices overall good
didn't have cocktail sauce for oysters.. it's like going to a restaurant with no regular water but sparkling water only
We visited Maiella for the first time for our anniversary and wow, best dining experience we’ve had in a LONG time. Wait staff was incredibly attentive and the food was a-mazing. The steak was cooked exactly to my asking, and was delicious. This will be our go-to for special occasions to come!
Beautiful restaurant with amazing food and ambience on the LIC waterfront.
As always, Maiella does not disappoint. Delicious food, beautifully plated, outstanding service, and attractive ambience.
Food was excellent - service wasn't great. I understand people are going through a shortage of workers, but they acted like they wanted us out of the restaurant they rushed us so quickly. Nonetheless, food was amazing.
It’s a nice touch that they surprise my nephew with a slice of birthday cake.
Everything was Marvelous!!!
The service and food is always top-notch
The food was excellent. there were a lot of large parties and at times the wait staff were a little behind but my biggest negative was the noise level was so High it was hard to have a conversation with my wife at times. We were seated outside so we were surprised at how loud some of the parties were.
Had an excellent dinner last night. Food superb as well their services. This restaurant is always great!!!
Service was excellent, portions were small, prices expensive for the portions served. I didn’t like the pork at all but my daughters liked it.
Been going here for years and am disappointed in the offerings on the menu recently. Only one gluten free pasta choice and no GF pizza any more. What you pay is too high for what you get any more.
Our waiter Erik made it super clear with his tone and body language that he did not want to service our table after we were really patient and calm with him. Every opportunity to be condescending and callous towards us- he took
Great service. Elevated flavors
We ate there to celebrate our anniversary. We were married there 5 years ago. Service and food were wonderful and they have many new menu choices. Prices have risen but it’s still a great place.
Such great service, Jaciento was great and very knowledgeable about the food and had great recommendations.
Great service. Outdoor area comfortable and welcoming. Great flavor
Love the new menu! The new Chef! Love the place even more now!
Wonderful place. Been here for the second time and i will be planning my next very soon. Staff are so pleasant and polite. Food is exceptional. Love that they were able to accommodate my vegan/vegetarian diet.
The food was great. The noise was very loud so much so that it was difficult to hear the conversation at our table. I will avoid Saturday evenings in the future!!!
Menu changed. New chef.
Overall it was good. I took my wife for our anniversary, we had great time. They even sent us extra complementary desserts for our anniversary. Service was good and I would recommend to anyone and I would love to go back to taste more items on the menu.
Maiella provided fantastic service and delicious pasta. My family had a wonderful evening!
Delicious food and fabulous service - not a “light menu” so eat salad for lunch before you come :)
Wonderful location, romantic setting with exceptional food and service. Perfect for that special occasion!
This is not my first dining experience in Maiella, but I can’t help but acknowledge the full
Circle of complete satisfaction! The atmosphere is sexy, luxurious ! Dim lighting with great background music, wonderful service ! The food is amazingly delicious! We ordered Barrata appetizer and Grilled Octopus.. it was amazing! Our entree was grilled Branzino and a special cavitteli home made pasta with the this delicious sauce!! Great cheesecake desert !! It’ was a perfect meal coupled with GREAT SERVICE! I would come here a million times so GREAT!
We love it there! Food is delicious and service is the best I’ve experienced.
We came here for our anniversary. Were sat in a dark corner, but then they put a noisy family next to us. Why? Place was almost empty and it was early for dinner. Why weren't we seated at a better spot, like next to window? Waiter, who was lovely, lost our credit card. Blamed us then they found it. However food and drink were outstanding.
I've been here for many different occasions, date night, my engagement, family & friends. This time to celebrate my wife's birthday & pregnancy. The food has always been spot on and a staple of perfection. Our waiter Hugo was great. He had a strong service. Always attentive hustling bustling through the tables never leaving you feeling left behind or less important then the next. His extensive knowledge to the new menu was a plus as we were little more familiar with the last chef & menu.
We Started the night with The Moscow Mule as well as sparkling water (Pellegrino) and Polpo. A mid course that included the new version TAGLIATELLE TARTUFO (due to covid protocol is no longer cooked on cheese wheel table side) Entrees of Branzino & Steak. Our food was great although we wished the Polpo was little larger (1 piece seems tad small at the price and table of 2). The New Version of the Tagliatelle Tartufo was just right. Al dente with A little twist from big truffle pieces to shavings. We do hope the table side does return post covid. I'd like to say again our server was awesome.
The only truly unfortunate downfall and reason a perfect score could not be granted is the AC Unit seemed to be malfunctioning, constantly either turning on for minute then would turn off where the floor became so hot we began sweating feeling clammy and uncomfortable. You could see other patrons dabbing their faces with napkins. The poor waiters/waitresses/servers and bus boys tried hard not to show the sweat beading from their foreheads. We unfortunately had to take the rest of our dinner to go. As it became unbearable for a pregnant women to enjoy. I hope this gets fixed ASAP with NY Heatwaves.
We do look forward to a return when it get cooler for outdoor seats in the fall and a chance to put Maiella back to 5*'s. P.S. if you could bring back a staple duck entree would be awesome. Second to the now retired cheese wheel.
