Vegan Options at Maggiano’s Little Italy (Updated 2023)

Vegan Options at Maggiano's

Maggiano’s is an upscale Italian dine-in establishment with some decent vegan options. They may not offer a ton of variety, but the vegan dishes they have are good.

They also get props for specifically stating what items are vegan directly on their allergen menu – something we really appreciate here at VeggL. 

Here’s everything vegan at Maggiano’s:

Our Picks

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! That’s 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.
