Was in Philly for a quick weekend - lots of running around all day and so decided on a quick take out of ""quality"" Italian. I stopped in Maggiano's on Filbert and got a small filet mignon to go, along with some garlic bread and a house salad. I must say that the steak was good - rare, as ordered and very tasty. However, the steak came with absolutely nothing along side except some fried onions on top. For the price ($28.00) there should have at least been a side salad, fries, something..... The house salad was good, but the garlic bread - oh God - awful! Tasted fishy, like someone used some anchovies on it or too close to it. Anyway - I would not go back there - I ended up throwing the entire order of bread out (and it wan't cheap either). The steak would be worth it if they threw the house salad in with it - but alone - hell, I can get one cheaper at Smith and Wollensky's in Manhattan! P.S. While the young lady at the take out desk was very cordial - the order took forever!
Pros: Grill item was good, service accomodating and courteous.
Cons: Italian item was awful, pricey.
