    Mouthwatering. The calamari is one of my absolute favorites and the best I have had anywhere. I always order it and it is always fabulous. Love that!

    My family’s favorite is Taylor Street Baked Ziti! (And not just because they grew up on Taylor St.) I would love the recipe for that – and any tips too! Maggiano’s is even Nani (my 93 Italian Grandmother) apporoved, Clearly you’re doing something right ;-)

    I agree. I grew up in California but the calamari at Maggiano’s is some of the best ever if not the best ever

    I would love to have the recipe for the stuffed mushrooms and lasagna. Everything I have had at Maggianos is great. I also love eggplant.

    The chef was on the Fox 8 Morning Show in Cleveland, OH on September 20, 2011 cooking with Wayne Dawson and he made the Rigatoni D. The recipe is posted and I can’t wait to try it.  Also, glad I watched the show this morning because I will be checking out his restaurant this weekend.

    I also love the stuffed mushrooms.  Ther filling is both creamy and crunchy.  Perhaps iiit is a goat cheese and coarse Italian breadcrumbs.  Anyway I love them.  I wish there was one closer to me.
