Maggiano's Little Italy Opens New Location in Naperville January 24


NAPERVILLE, Ill., Jan 24, 2008 /PRNewswire via COMTEX News Network/ -- Maggiano's Little Italy opens its fifth Illinois location in Naperville, IL on January 24. With this opening, the brand, which now operates 42 restaurants nationwide, continues to build on strong roots in the Chicago area. The original Maggiano's restaurant -- located in downtown Chicago -- opened 17 years ago and other Illinois locations include Oak Brook, Schaumburg, and Skokie.

Maggiano's Little Italy offers guests classic and contemporary Italian dishes in a warm and friendly nostalgic atmosphere reminiscent of the golden age of Little Italy. Maggiano's made-from-scratch food served family style or a la carte, red-checkered tablecloths, family portraits, leather banquettes and richly polished mahogany wood provide a distinct ambiance and welcoming environment where guests enjoy a unique and memorable dining experience.

Restaurant industry veterans Larry Konecny, General Manager, and Jim Nuzzo, Executive Chef, will oversee restaurant operations.

"From our made-from-scratch authentic recipes to the restaurant's comfortable, traditional interior, we strive to make sure our guests experience the true essence of Little Italy," said Konecny.

Maggiano's famous family style dining is perfect for sharing and allows guests to choose two selections from each of the following courses: appetizers, salads, pastas, main courses and desserts to share at their table. Guests can also select from a full menu of a la carte items ranging from new twists on old favorites such as Lasagna or Baked Ziti & Sausage to famous Chef-inspired creations such as Lobster Ravioli and Maggiano's signature Rigatoni "D(R)."

Located at 1847 Freedom Drive in Naperville, Maggiano's offers lunch, dinner, carryout service, and banquet spaces for any occasion.
