Maggiano's Little Italy Restaurant Review: Hip Italian ambience in the New York manner and giant portions define Maggiano's. Both aspects attract standing-room-only crowds of every age making for a fun, frenzied atmosphere. It's no use stopping by unless you are hungry, for every dish easily serves two, maybe more---though you can order half portions. The bread basket with its wedges of focaccia as well as the wine glasses overflow. We recommend the roasted red peppers with sheets of fresh Parmesan, the garlic mashed potatoes and the roast chicken with its sprinkling of garlic, rosemary, and olive oil. Best dessert? The dense chocolate zuccoto cake. Plan ahead and make reservations, or you'll have to wait with the hungry hordes. Also located at 5333 Wisconsin Ave., Washington, DC, 202-966-5500.
