Love for Maggiano's
Well while living in SoCal I never took my fellow lgk'er's advice (thanks KJ/Obie, Foof, luvzig, etal.) to go to Maggiano's. Well, let's just say I missed out all this time!
The wife and I went yesterday to celebrate our anniversary and we were pretty pleased with our choice. We went to the one here in Bellevue, WA. I had the Baked Ziti and Italian sausage and it was darn tasty. My wife had her italian standby eggplant parm.
Being very Italian this place reminded me very much of places I went with my grandfather and mother back in the day and back east. Very old style with a new menu. Very pleased with the whole experience and recommend it to anyone. I think there is one in Irvine as well as in LA somewhere.

I love this place. I keep getting Hubby to take me but we never make the plans to go!

My office gets Maggiano's every once in a while from management. It's pretty damn good!

Buca Di Beppo > Maggiano's
I think both are very tasty, but I think Bucca has a slight edge...

Wouldn't disagree with Buca as a great choice. I just liked how Maggiano's atmosphere and menu was like an "old" Italian style east-coast restaurant. Very much like you would find in NYC, Boston or Philly, or even Baltimore, where I have eaten many times. You don't get that much on the west coast and it was nice to see/experience.
Buca's chicken parm or saltimbucca with a side of spaghetti and meatballs and sauteed green beans is just like momma made!

I had never been to Maggiano's before this past Sunday. I really liked it!! I think it even passed my former fave, Buca.
