Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant Review: At this Maggiano's location, Atlanta's first, towering columns and scores of black-and-white photos of Little Italy on the walls define the colossal dining room. Upstairs, equally spacious private rooms are popular for company affairs and sometimes bachelor or rehearsal dinners. The menu has honed in on the single diner option rather than the massive portions of Italian cooking that used to dominate the offerings, but those are still available for feeding families or large gatherings. Mile-high lasagna has gotten much better since we first tasted it; specialty pastas include very good gnocchi with Italian sausage. The veal porterhouse is massive, easily enough for two people. As side dishes, look for sautéed spinach and mashed potatoes. Gluten-free options are available on all Maggiano’s menus. Tiramisu is downright irresistible. We wish the wine list were more exciting, but what's there is serviceable. This location has a bakery and take-out. Also located at 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Rd., Perimeter Mall, Dunwoody, 770-804-3313; and 1601 Cumberland Mall SE, Cumberland Mall, Atlanta/Vinings, 770-799-1580.
