Maggiano’s is an upscale Italian dine-in establishment with some excellent vegan options. They may not offer a ton of variety, but the vegan dishes they do have are really good. They also get props for specifically stating what items are vegan directly on their allergen menu – something we really appreciate here at VeggL!
Also, if you check out our picks down at the bottom I let you in on a ‘secret sandwich’ that you may be able to ask for the next time you’re at Maggiano’s.

All of the options we have listed here are listed as vegan on Maggiano’s Vegan/Vegetarian Allergen Data. A couple notes from that page that we also wanted to share:
Our corporate dietitian has identified which menu items meet our vegetarian and vegan standards.
Vegan (VG) items contain no animal-derived products. Because we use shared fryers in our restaurants, fried foods are exposed to animal product during the cooking process.
VeggL Cheat Sheet Guides
Ryan’s Pick: We often get Maggiano’s catered for our away game plane trips. (I work in college football) We get an option of the Mediterranean Spaghetti and an Eggplant sandwich with veggies on Ciabatta bread. The sandwich I just learned is not even on the menu! Too bad, because the sandwich is excellent! That is usually my choice between the two.
Jen’s Pick: I usually order the Mediterranean Spaghetti with no capers. I don’t really get enamored with pasta dishes because I always feel like it’s something I can do myself, but the dish is really good.
