If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you choose? For us, Italy was always high on our list. Fortunately for us, we were able to make our dreams a reality a few years back when we visited Italy together. All these years later and the one thing we still cannot stop talking about is the food. I think our love for food really began when we were over in Italy. The cobblestone roads, Italian music throughout the streets, sitting underneath the stars, all the pasta and bread – we could go on and on but we think y’all get the idea…
So you guys can bet how ecstatic we were when we were given the opportunity to partner with Maggiano’s Little Italy In Orlando. Located right on International Drive, Maggiano’s is rated one of the top Italian restaurants in the area. We are still pinching ourselves at just how lucky we are to have been able to work with such top-notch establishments in Orlando – the magical land of Mickey Mouse.
Maggiano’s Little Italy is located right in the heart of Orlando. If you are looking for a night out with family or a romantic night out with your significant other – Maggiano’s is the place to be. Because of it’s prime location on International Drive, Maggiano’s is the perfect place to grab a hearty, Italian dinner. With endless shopping, mini golf and amusement parks – you can have a fun filled day out and stop over to Maggiano’s to finish the night off perfectly.
We visited Maggiano’s our first night in town and it was the perfect setting to start our vacation off. The sun was a pretty shade of orange and purple – we made it just before sunset! If y’all have never seen a Florida sunset y’all are seriously missing out! Speechless. We gave our name to the hostess and we were seated right away.
From the moment we walked in we instantly flashbacked to our time in Italy. The red and white booths made us feel like we were back in Venice, eating out on the patio watching the gondolas stroll by right under the Rialto Bridge. To say we were in heaven would be an understatement.
The bread was waiting for us when we walked to our table – Shayla’s little ones were so very happy to dig right in! After a fun filled first day the boys were itching to eat. Our server came over soon after and was eager to take our orders.
We ordered a calamari for the table while Katie stuck to a caesar salad – she’s not a fan of the fishy food. For our main course – Shayla went for the Chicken Parmesan while Katie had the Fettuccine Alfredo with Chicken. Michael ordered the Mushroom Ravioli while the kiddos got some pizza!
As y’all can see, we know how to start a vacation off the right way! A huge thank you to Maggiano’s for their hospitality, amazing food and for bringing us back to Italy for just a few hours.
