Need a good Italian restaurant in OC
The place I was going to closed. :(
I am specifically looking for a place with an insanely good chicken parm.

Hip and AZ both recommend OLive Garden. I recommend The Old Fashioned Spaghetti Factory.

Salvatore's in Laguna Hills is good. They have a nice meal with soup, salad, entree and desert. My husband's family is pure Sicilian and they've eaten there for 20 years.

Roman Cucina on Newport by ConRev. Skip the chicken parm and order the sausage mozzarella instead.

this is my favorite place:
Dinner Menu at Mangia Mangia authentic Italian Restaurant in Huntington Beach, CA 92647
it's in HB. they don't have chicken parm that i know of & i'm not a fan of veal, but they have veal parm.
i usually get the linguine & clams and then tiramisu.

Maggiano's - believe it's in Costa Mesa....can't speak for the chicken parm - but I like everything I've tried there....

I can't go there. the name sounds way too much like Mangina
