Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant Review: Always a favorite for pre-nuptial festivities, office parties and family gatherings, Maggiano's offers Italian cuisine, well-trained waitstaff and a warm ambience that lure couples for a special date night. While the large platters of pasta, chicken and seafood are for sharing, smaller portions are available for parties of two. Crispy calamari served with marinara sauce is a nice nibble while perusing the menu and relaxing with a martini or glass of wine. While most of the pasta dishes are appealing, linguine di mare, abundant with lobster, shrimp and mussels, is a standout. Try that and the chicken piccata, and everyone will be happy --- especially when they see chocolate zuccotto cake layered with chocolate mousse for dessert.
