My daughter joined me on a recent business trip to Irvine, California. After a full day of business, everyone on the team (and my daughter too) met at Maggianos Little Italy. We had reservations for 13, so we were placed in a semi-private dining room off the bar area to the left of the front door. The place was busy... More

was at a business meeting. The service was very good bringing an assortment of appetizers followed by the mains. It was a quiet private room which was perfect for the meeting but unfortunately the food was mediocre

Our waiter then came and told us he wanted to make us happy, I gave him my beverage order three times before he finally got it, he may have been a little distracted by our beautiful friend. we were...

Portions are still large and now you can take home a 2nd pasta dish. We could not, as we were traveling the next... More

And that's the problem imho when you try turn authentic Italian into a chain. There are no Italian restaurant chains in Italy. It just does not work that way. We had a... More

Went for dinner. The drinks are good and reasonable. Service was really good. I ordered the veal with lemon....velvet texture that melted in your mouth. Husband had spaghetti with meatballs...he was very happy with his choice. Both entrees were more than we could eat. When they offered us a pasta to take home...we were sorry we were at a hotel...

Large portions and if you order a pasta, you can chose one to take home free. Their salads are great, as is the lasagna and spaghetti. We've celebrated many birthdays here and love it.
