Maggiano's Little Italy

 70 Riverside Sq
Hackensack, NJ

All Time Favorite!

This is my ALL TIME FAVORITE restaurant! I try to get there at least once a month to check out the amazing Chef Specials. The food is ALWAYS spectacular. How unique to have a restaurant this size serve homemade Italian from SCRATCH! My son has a severe peanut allergy and the server brings the Executive Chef right to the table to make sure the order is done right. Staff is gracious, friendly, hospitable and VERY attentive. The unique decor takes me back to Sunday dinner at my grandma’s house. I have also been to several social and business private events in their gorgeous banquet rooms. Even with large groups the food has always been spot on and the service impeccable. My office just used them for a delivery and it was top notch. I can’t say enough wonderful things about this place. Make a reservation online because they are very popular — especially on the weekends. If the weather is nice ask for the patio – you’ll thank me later. YOU GOTTA GO!

Calamari Fritte Appetizer

Super tender and amazing flavor! Most Calamari is like rubber. Not this one; server said that they use grade #1 from RI. You can tell it is a superior product.

Chef KB's Lobster Carbonara

The Chef created this delightful dish, one of my faves. Lobster with a creamy carbonara sauce and spaghetti. Truly incredible.

N.Y. Style Cheesecake, Seasonal Fruit

Homemade (of course) with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. Very light and velvety and creamy. Kills the Cheesecake Factory’s version any day of the week. Throwdown winner? Maggiano’s!

Nonna's Pound Cake, Caramelized Bananas

This is Chef Scott’s favorite, a must try. The bananas are unbelievable. Just like Granny used to make!

Chicken Saltimbocca

The GM (Mike) suggested this to our table. Chicken wrapped in proscuitto and cheese with a sage sauce – irresistible flavor and good if you want something different than a chicken parmesan.
