Maggiano's Little Italy ***
3055 Olin Avenue
Cuisine: Southern Italian
Description & Atmosphere
You may already be familiar with Maggiano’s Little Italy
restaurants – they’re dotted around the U.S. However,
this is the first one to open in Northern California. It’s
conveniently located at San Jose’s popular Santana
the corner of Winchester Blvd. The 220-seat restaurant is very
similar to Carmine’s in Manhattan and (on a smaller scale)
Buca di Beppo. The main dining room offers table and booth
seating in a clubby informal atmosphere - it’s surprisingly
quiet for such a large and busy space.
Enjoy Maggiano’s House Specialties, homemade
pastas, delicious salads, prime steaks, fresh fish and
yummy desserts. Food is served family-style for tables
of four or more. Portions are huge and meant to be shared.
The family-style option also lets you order “more” of
anything you like – you won’t leave hungry…that’s
for sure! Menu standouts include: Mussels and Barb’s
Spinach & Artichoke al Forno appetizers, Maggiano’s
and Caesar salads, Mostaccioli Eggplant Marina and the
Linguine with Chicken, Pesto and Pine Nuts, Chicken
Parmesan and Salmon with Lemon & Herbs, and for dessert,
Tiramisu and the fabulous Nonna’s
