Maggiano’s Little Italy Restaurant Review

Posted on January 4, 2010 | 9:00am

Maggiano’s is located in the parking lot of South Coast Plaza right outside of Sears.  They used to split the building with Corner Bakery, but Corner Bakery is now gone and Maggiano’s has expanded.  It was a much needed expansion so they could seat more hungry people.  I always recommend having a reservation for this restaurant, but if you don’t, it’s still worth the wait! They serve their dishes family style, meaning each portion could easily feed 2-3 people.  The restaurant itself has a nice dim, romantic ambiance.  It has the feel that you’re in an expensive restaurant, minus the expensive! The pasta dishes are offered in half portions and full portions.  Half portions meaning you don’t want to share your plate of deliciousness.  Full portions meaning you also don’t want to share and you want leftovers to enjoy the next day.  I find it to be worth it to pay the extra $3-4 for the full portion so I have left overs for the next day.
