Maggiano's Little Italy restaurant - dining room

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 Row, on 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.



Food
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 Pound Cake.
