Bob,
I've been to three of them over a span of a couple years.  San Jose, CA ; Costa Mesa, CA ; Tampa, FL.  The one in Tampa i remember being fantastic (Chicken Parm - memorable)  The food at the one in San Jose was unremarkable - but it was a group dinner and I remember seeing a lot of oil in Fettuccine that had separated.  Probably because it was a group of about 40-50.  but my memories of this one were carbohydrate overload & oil.  Costa Mesa was the most recent and I think I recall having Penne Arribiata (or spaghetti arrabiata)  That was very good.  I remember the service at all three was very good.  Enjoy dinner with your Sweetie!


Cheers,
Don

Been to Costa Mesa numerous times. Very good food.   They used to have huge pasta dishes but cut the portions in half and they give you one pasta to go.  I be level they charge $13 for their regular pasta dishes.  So this deal give you the appetizer or salad and dessert. For $40 it's pretty good

That looks awesome - looks a bit saucier than the Chili's - I mean Maggiano’s dish.

Thanks Craig.  This blows theirs out of the water.  Maggiano's doesn't thicken the sauce with corn starch and all the runny sauce goes straight to the bottom their dish.

Maggianos charges $16 a plate.  You can make three plates for $8 and it's restaurant quality all the way.

Nate,

I made the Rigatoni D last night and it came out great.  I doubled the recipe to have leftovers.  Thanks,

Bob
