5 Little Known Maggiano’s Facts

If you’re a Maggiano’s fan, it’s likely that you know we are all about serving homemade, classic Italian-American cuisine in a warm and friendly environment. But there’s even more to us than meets the eye! Here are 5 little known facts about us:

Our Dining Room is open for lunch and dinner, but for Private Dining guests who host morning meetings and brunch events, we serve breakfast! And it’s not bagels and boxed cereals, it’s really good. The Italian Sausage & Bacon Frittata, the Cinnamon French Toast with Caramelized Bananas, the Smoked Salmon Platter, and the Omelet station are just a few reasons we can’t say no to breakfast at Maggiano’s. Find your local Maggiano’s Banquet team on our website and click Daytime for a menu and pricing.

Lorenza’s Sundae Bar
Speaking of Banquets, Lorenza’s Sundae Bar is available for private events. We think the selection of treats like Vera’s Lemon Cookies and Nonna’s Toasted Pound Cake make it a deliciously fun way to engage with your guests (especially the kids at heart). Call your Banquet Sales Manager to learn more at 877-350-3721.

Scratch Kitchen
By the end of this year, we will be 53 restaurants strong! Though we’re growing, we’re still a chef-driven restaurant with a scratch kitchen. That means that while we strive for flawless execution, your dish is homemade and we can accommodate dietary needs. If you have dietary restrictions, let your server know and we’ll be happy to create a dish that suits you and your guests. The same rule applies for Carryout, Delivery  and Banquets – we want to deliver food you’ll love.

Contadina & al Forno
You may be asking yourself, who are Contadina and al Forno? They’re more of a what – two ways to upgrade your Maggiano’s steak and veal dishes. Contadina style includes two Italian Sausage links, Crispy Red Vesuvio-Style Potatoes, Roasted Red & Yellow Peppers, Roasted Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Steak Jus, and Garlic Butter – many of guests refer to this as a meal in itself and it is the WOW of all steaks. Al Forno style is when the steak finished and baked with Gorgonzola Cheese, and served on a bed of Portabella Mushrooms that have been cooked in Balsamic Vinegar, Steak Jus and Garlic.
