    This Saturday, a group of friends and I will be celebrating my 66th birthday at Maggiano’s in Tampa at Westshore!  Can’t wait to try the salmon oscar!  Sounds great. 

  • Susan Petty

    I have a shellfish allergy, but the stuffed shells sound interesting!

  • Gina_r04

    That Balsamic Glazed Shrimp sure sounds and looks good

  • CAD

    Look Good— how many of these dishes can be GF?

  • Rae

    Shells sound wonderful.  We’ll try them at the Galleria Houston location.
    I copied the Salmon Oscar recipe.  I think it would also work on a nice piece of tilapia.  Can’t wait to try it both ways.

  • Kkp0001

  • Wzhang

  • John

    The Salmon oscar is to dye for!  It has to be one of the best salmon entre ever to hit a plate.

    I mostly eat vegetarian, but very occasionally eat fish. Very disappointing that the salmon dish has chicken broth in the sauce. You need to make more vegetarian friendly dishes!

  • Sandydemo

    Can I get the recipe for Rigatoni D. Can’t find anything like this in Naples. Can’t wait for spring to get back to my Mag in Lincolnshire and Schaumburg, IL.

  • Nanci Gregg

    I too am confused about pricing for these entrees and the $5 off offer. Several of them sound amazing!

  • Ted Skandy

    again, unsure of what the $5 off is for. This is not the 1st time that an offer was unclear.

  • Momcat

    Need vegetarian food….

  • TXEdie

    Sounds delicious … but evidently you can’t please everyone!

  • Judithgurian

    There is no way to get $5.00 coupomn off the computer

  • Carusojc

    Agreed – had the same thought!

  • Linda Simpson

    All of the new things look good, and I plan to go tomorrow.

    It appears that the $5.00 off is only on these select items above…
    Why not leave it up to your customers? Let us pick our favorite items
    to get the discount…I bet if you did $7.00 you would get a greater volume of 
    customers visiting your locations in this economy…
    Let’s face it, pasta and flatbread’s are low cost items as you know. 
    Flatbread’s will always leave you hungry….as the portion size is tiny.

    I’m a sweets freak. I’d like to try the Spiced Pear Cake at the Maggiano’s in the North Park Dallas Mall location.

  • Jazz

    Looks delicious!!! Can’t wait to try the glazed shrimp and salmon!

  • Anonymous

    More vegetarian dishes, please!!!! How do we get the $5.00 savings? Coupon needed?

  • guest

    Just finished our leftovers from Christmas Eve that I froze as soon as we got home.  They tasted better than ever!! I’m a great, great cook especially Italian and I really like this restaurant. 

  • LL

  • JTS7114

    Place your cursor over the red strip that states “$5 Off Any Little Itlay Favorite” and you get the following coupon.

  • Tigeroverflow

    Lol… Yes I guess 80 degrees F by day and 60 degrees + by night compared to somewhere is cold, but not in Los Angeles. What market are you writing for?

  • rf

    i totally agree! maggiano’s please incorporate more vegetarian friendly options and please consider using vegetable stock in those options if stock is needed. sometimes people forget that adding beef, chicken, or fish stock to a dish no longer makes the dish vegetartian.

  • Chester Kuzawski

    Great menu!  I’m coming in for stuffed shells & pear cake.  Chester

  • RAY DIANGELO

    If you click on the $5 coupon in the advertisement it opens up the coupon for you to print.

  • Guest

    … The $5 is to promote their new items.  That’s why you can’t pick anything you want.   They want you to try the new menu item.  Do you really not get how that works?  And really?  The extra $2 is going to send you and a million other cheapskates flying out the door to your local Maggiano’s?  I think not.  With the way people like you order and tip at restaurants Maggiano’s is better off without you.  Don’t you understand that in a down economy restaurants and other superfluous purchases suffer most?   You can’t just accept a coupon which they didn’t have to put out in the first place and be happy about it?  And lastly, FLATBREADS (unless you are putting a possessive on that word because you want it to own the ignorant statement that follows) are usually considered an appetizer.  Unless you order it for your meal in which case you should get a side to supplement if you feel they are not filling.  But you wouldn’t know that because you probably split everything when you go out, complain about service and portion size to receive free items,  leave a horrendous tip, and then come back again and repeat the process just to add insult to injury.   

    I feel better now.

  • Edythe

    What happened to “check your inbox for message” for the named winners of last weeks $100 gift certificate?  So far no message…was this just another scam to get responses?

  • Carole

    I think I’m going to try the Balsamic Glazed Shrimp.  It looks to die for.  I like when you have pictures to support the description.  It makes it so much more appetizing….

  • Linda Simpson

    Items look great.  Will go today to celebrate a birthday.  Your portions are one of the reasons we go to Maggiano’s.  The servers show they want to please guests.  It would be nice if people appreciate what your company does to keep its employees working and customers coming back.

    Maggiano’s is a place you can go economically or spend more with a good dining experience.  I highly recommend it in this economy.

  • Miss Italy

  • Tmg121970

    wondering how many calories/fat in the ‘lighter items’ ie…shrimp & asparagus flatbread.

  • Cgbarnett

    I agree!… Please tell management that the $5.00 off coupon should be on all dishes, especially for loyal customers! We really like Mangianno’s and would appreciate the coupon being for anytime and any dishes. Thanks!

  • Michael

    The food is great, however the service I received as a first time customer was below normal standards. The waitress did not frequent the table much and we never received the drinks we ordered with our food.

  • JBONO

    Attention all Grazers!

    If you don’t like the food, go someplace else. We connivers
    would like more beef dishes!

  • Stewasr

    I love your good, hearty, Italian food. Just like my mom/grandparents made. Vegetarians can go somewhere else. I don’t go there to eat healthy,

  • Luigi

    Prices, please!

  • Ghretz

    You need to have a moratorium on asparagus! Feed that stuff to the vegetarians!

  • Lim

    where is ths price list?

  • just asking

    Do you know the price of these dishes at dinner?

  • http://www.facebook.com/roxsusieq Sue Heart

    would love to, but being gluten free, could I switch the orzo for gluten free pasta?

  • Carole

    The coupon is wonderful—–But since I have allergies to shrimp and crab, not useful to me!

  • Imjusducky

    In response to the ? about $5 coupon…just click on the home page where it states “Get $5 off any Little Italy Favorite’” and print the coupon

  • Suzshafer

    Love this restaurant.  Where is the coupon and cost of these special dishes.  It always makes me laugh when the seller says you can get $5.00  off, and then fails to tell you “off what”.  I am looking forward to trying your new dishes.

  • Flathead

    How does one get the $5.00 coupon??? We love your food and eat at the Woodland Hills location at least once a week. Looking forward to trying the new menu items they look yummy!!!!

  • Limang

    Do you know the price of these dishes at dinner?

  • Annetteinternet

    try their pasta dishes with salad and bread

  • Ladygator52

    Maggiano,s Marketing many people have asked for the price of these dishes. Is there a reason you have not answered this ?.

  • sarah

    What is the location your closest Maggiano’s?

  • sarah

    What is your closest Maggiano’s?

  • Miss Pearl

    Meeting friends tonight at Maggiano’s, will use coupon !

  • sarah

    What is your closest Maggiano’s location?

  • sarah

    Hi Sue,
    Yes, you can definitely ask for gluten-free pasta! There are breadcrumbs on the salmon as well, so you would have to have a grilled piece of salmon. The sauce is gluten-free already. Thank you for reaching out!

  • sarah

    What is your local Maggiano’s? I can email you the menu! Thanks!

  • sarah

    Hi Michael,
    We are very sorry to hear about your recent experience. Please email us at maggianos.socialmedia@brinker.com so we can make things right. Thank you for reaching out!

  • Kateh

    Are these Chef Specials with the $5 coupon served for lunch, also??

  • sarah

    Hi Kate,
    Yes, they are!

  • Smith

    The menu in the http://www.maggianos.com website, even under the specific restaurant location such as Bridgewater NJ, does not list these Favorites.  I cannot therefore find the prices of these Favorites, short of calling the restaurant directly.  Why are the prices not posted, even for the individual locations?  $5 off $50 seems a small discount, but $5 off $25 is more reasonable.

  • Tracy

    Is this all you do is complain, if you have ever been to maggiano’s then you should know the chefs will prepare anything for food allergies, glutin free or vegetarians take the time to ask questions and read the menu. My husband and I dine twice a month and I have food allergies and they are great at taking care of us

  • Donna Carrier

    We always make it a point to dine at Maggiano’s at least once or twice while in Orlando for the Holiday’s visiting with our children. We most recently dined on Friday Jan. 27, 2012. My sis-in-law and I ordered the Balsamic Glazed Shrimp with the Orzo Pasta, needless to say we were most pleased with this dish!. I would thoroughly enjoy the recipe as a year is a long time to wait to experience this culinary delight. Would also add we have never been disappointed in any dish we have experienced~ Thanks
