As I mentioned in a few previous posts, we recently went to Las Vegas. It was such a great treat to get away from the everyday bump and grind of daily life.
Every now and again, hubby and I come up with gift cards to different places. One of the places we came up with a gift card to was Maggiano’s Little Italy. We didn’t know what it was, neither of us had ever eaten there, however Italian food, I’m in! It just so happened to be in the Fashion Show Mall right next door to Treasure Island where we were staying. If you’ve never been to Vegas, a lot of the larger intersections have crossing bridges. You either go up via escalator, stairs, or elevator, cross the intersection above, and then go back down to the street sidewalks. This place just happened to have a cross intersection right there from TI to Fashion Show Mall.
|Again, I didn’t think to do restaurant reviews until after I ate here so here is their storefront via their website.|
You’ve also seen me mention before that when we try new places, hubby and I try to get different things. We both almost ordered the Chicken Parm but decided on different things. My other option was the Fettuccine Alfredo, but Hubby decided on Chicken Marsala and I went with the Chicken Parmesan. We both love Chicken Parm and think the best is at Zio’s, so we had to see how this compared. I’ll tell you, it was fabulous dawling! It compared!

I’m not huge on Spaghetti noodles so hubby and I swapped noodles, I ate mine with the angel hair pasta and he ate his with the spaghetti noodles. The angel hair pasta was great by itself. It was that good!
Then one because we were on vacation, two, the waiter said Tiramisu and3 we’re always sold on Tiramisu, we tried it. Oh good golly, it was wonderful.

Definitely if I ever run across another Maggiano’s you know I’ll be stopping in to eat. And sad but true, I’ll probably get the Chicken Parmesan again, but next time try to get the angel hair pasta. Yes, it was that good!
And Hello “Like” on Facebook :)… btw, have you noticed how it seems everyone has a Facebook page these days? Ok not everyone, but a lot of people, restaurants, and companies.
