Houston’s third Maggiano’s Little Italy location opened in late summer 2016, inside the west end of Memorial City Mall. The 8,864-square-foot space, which includes a patio and two event-ready spaces, sets the scene for southern Italian favorites, in a casual, come-as-you-are space.
Family-style portions and red-checkered tablecloths contribute to the laid-back vibe that draws families and large groups for made-from-scratch Italian-American fare. The menu brims with traditional dishes, from starters like fried calamari, parmesan garlic bread and Tuscan-style mussels to spaghetti with meatballs and manicotti with chicken and spinach. Half portions are a safe bet—they’re generous and well-priced. Save space for tiramisu and a cappuccino for dessert.
Maggiano’s is open for lunch and dinner daily. Reservations are accepted.
