Dining Deal–Maggiano’s Little Italy

Would you like some pasta with your pasta? As if the portions at Maggiano’s aren’t big enough, the restaurant is now running a promotion where if you buy one pasta meal for $12.95, you can get a second meal to take home with you…for free! According to the promotional mailer that I got, “your second selection will be packaged and ready to go at the end of your meal.”

I don’t know about you, but I can usually get at least two meals out of one serving of pasta from Maggiano’s. And the nice thing about this promotion is that it doesn’t discriminate against single diners. Most restaurants offer “buy one, get one free” entree specials, but those deals aren’t any good if you’re eating alone. Occasionally, I enjoy a solitary lunch. It would be delightful to indulge in some delicious pasta and then have even more to take home with me. Maggiano’s packages its pasta with excellent reheating instructions, as well, so it always tastes good the next day.

You can choose from seven free pastas, including chicken pesto linguine, four-cheese ravioli, and my personal favorite, rigatoni “D”–pasta, roasted chicken, mushrooms, and caramelized onions in a marsala cream sauce, although I always hold the mushrooms. I’m not sure how widely this special is being advertised, but the mailer I got was pretty slick. I haven’t splurged on such a pricey lunch in quite a while, but I just might go back to Maggiano’s to take advantage of the extra free meal. Would a deal like this lure you in?
