Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant Review: A favorite for pre-nuptial festivities, office parties and family gatherings, Maggiano's offers Italian cuisine and a warm ambience that also lures 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. Spinach and artichoke al forno is a nice nibble while perusing the menu and relaxing with a martini, glass of wine or shot of scotch. While most of the pasta dishes are appealing, linguine di mare, abundant with lobster, shrimp and mussels, is a standout. Or go lighter with pesto perlini over hand-cut fettuccine. Accompany either with the chicken and mushroom Marsala. The mini dessert sampler of tiramisu, apple crostada and chocolate zuccotto bites has just the right amount of sweetness. Waitstaff is well trained.
