Maggiano's Little Italy - Naperville

I can't even begin to count how many times I've eaten Maggiano's food - which would also be the same number of times I've had a good meal there. It's a great operation serving quality, large portion Italian food for the family (or the occasional dinner for two though not nearly as fun). The last time we went was a few months ago (yea still catching up...) and we had a good meal. I made a slight mistake by ordering butternut squash ravioli from the daily specials. When I love so many things from the regular menu I should just stick with that. Oh well. Erica had a really nice pasta dish, Jean went with a very tasty eggplant lasagna and Jordan did his typical seafood pasta. The best dish of the meal was definitely the twin profiteroles for dessert. We all could have had 10 more, but luckily we held back.

I didn't love my ravioli because they were too sweet, even though I was expecting a dish with brown sugar and sauce. It was just overpowering and not something I enjoy with my Italian food. I don't remember everything inside of Erica's pasta dish besides the chicken and spinach but there were a lot of nice flavors and not over filling. Jean's eggplant was also very nice and hearty.

There is still no doubt that Maggiano's is a gold standard for dependable food and perfect for families and large groups. I look forward to my next opportunity for good food and great profiteroles.
