We went to Maggiano's before going to a play. They have a great special $45 for two. 2 salads 2 meals and dessert plus 2 meals to go. Nice wine list

Service was friendly and attentive. The food is more than you can eat at one sitting, which is why they give you a "take home" plate. Bon Appetite!

Best lasagna from a restaurant I've ever had. Excellent veal parmigiana, too. But first thing's first, let's get the logistics out of the way. This Maggiano's is located near the corner of Bristol and Sunflower across the parking lot from Sears. They identify themselves as being the South Coast Plaza location but South Coast Plaza doesn't include them in the... More

This is going to sound petty. We had a good meal here, food was ok, about what you'd expect for the money. crab cakes were very over priced at $30 but everything else was priced fairly. The biggest turnoff I've ever had though in a restaurant was THE FILTHIEST, GREASIEST, OLDEST, MOST UNHYGIENIC Menus I have ever handled in my... More

I am from the New York area and I usually very disappointed when someone sets me up to go to Italian on the West Coast. But I must say Maggiano's Little Italy got it right!! The ambiance and the food was spot on!! Way beyond my expectations! The only problem was the waiters were way too nice! Not used to... More

We tried this Italian restaurant on the recommendation of a friend and it was great. A small, friendly neighborhood restaurant with great food and fast service. We observed that there were many "regular" customers that were acquainted with the staff. I can see why we will definitely be going back! The prices were very reasonable for the quality of the...

We have eaten at several Maggiano's and the food and service have always been great. I would say every item on the menu is delicious. The ambiance is very warm and welcoming. I highly recommend to make a reservation, since the wait time could be long specially during dinner.

My husnpband and I have been to Maggiano's in Seattle, but it was our first time to try this location. My husband ordered chicken Parmesan, and I ordered a cup of basil tomato soup and flat bread. I enjoyed the soup. It was hot and tasty, but the flat bread was just not very hot. In the past we ordered... More
