Maggiano’s Little Italy is our favourite Italian restaurant in Orlando.
We walked in through the back door as it is opposite the multi story car park (Maggiano’s Little Italy will validate your ticket so you can park for free) and along the beautiful corridor to the lobby where we were greeted.
We were shown to our table and our drink orders taken. The children were given crayons and menus they could colour. A basket of bread was brought to our table to eat while we were choosing what we wanted. A delicious dip of olive oil, parmesan, salt and pepper was prepared in front of us for the bread.
The restaurant is beautiful and has an Italian feel to it and the food is delicious.
We ordered two children’s meals which were breaded chicken with garlic mash and beans and ravioli. I was impressed by the portion size of the chicken meal and the fact that although it was breaded, the food was healthy. The ravioli portion didn’t look as generous but it was large pieces of homemade ravioli which were filling and my son had enough to eat.
We also ordered a chicken salad, mushroom ravioli and a pasta carbonara. All of these meals were delicious.
After our main courses we were offered dessert and as the kids meals came with free ice cream or homemade lemon cookies we also ordered a selection of yummy mini desserts to share.
We really enjoyed our meal at Maggiano’s Little Italy. It makes a refreshing change to eat freshly prepared Italian food in Orlando and we can always guarantee it will be good quality!

The toilets are a long walk as the building is big and there is more than one entrance so I wouldn’t send your child by themself.
