Maggiano’s Little Italy

Getting seated is the hard part at this perennially popular Chicago-style pasta house. Ordering is easy for parties of four or more since most of the menu is served family-style, making this Party Central for affordable feasts. Several classic pastas are portioned to feed two, or make two meals (one of which they’ll prepackage to take home). From chopped salad with prosciutto, to “Mom’s Lasagna,” it’s comfort food that satisfies.
