Maggiano's Little Italy

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Jeffrey on March 1, 2002

Great Italian food and lots of it. This place is right out of a mafia movie...a traditional Italian restaurant, down to the dark wood furniture and red and white checkered tablecloths. Maggiano's has a large selection of traditional Italian dishes and wines.

This Maggiano's has a neat enclosed porch with lots of light that provides a warm weather environment without exposing you to the elements. During our visit for an early dinner, there was some kind of private function in there.

Maggiano's boasts that their portions are large enough to share, and they aren't kidding. If you enjoy salads and deserts, consider spliting an entree with a guest. For large groups, you can order a 2-3 course family style dinner ($22/person dinner, $10-$14 lunch), you choose 2 appetizers, salads, pastas, main courses, vegetables, desserts, and they bring out tons of food instead of individual plates/entrees.

If you prefer to order ala carte, Maggiano's has an absolutely huge menu of reads/appetizers ($3-$12), soups ($2-$4), salads ($4-$12), Ravioli and Lasagne ($12-$16), Pasta ($9-$16), Chicken ($13-$16), Steaks ($23-$31), Veal ($19-$29), and Seafood ($19-$22). As some kind of cruel joke, they also have lots of desserts ($3-$6), but I'll bet they don't sell many of them.

They also serve lunch with small entrees and sandwiches ($7-$8). My visit was for dinner. I had Lasagne ($14) and a half order of Asparagus ($4), and both were fantastic. I almost finished all of it before becoming stuffed. They also have full bar service.

In case all of that food is not enough, there is a Corner Bakery at this Maggiano's colocated in the front corner of the restaurant.

Maggiano's is located north of downtown in Buckhead, not far from the Concourse Business Park I occassionally work at. Come hungry and even still you may carry home food.
