DALLAS, March 11, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Mamma Mia! Maggiano's Little Italy(R) introduces their "Menu For Two" - a fixed-price, chef-inspired, three-course menu all for just $40. Available now at participating nationwide locations, Maggiano's invites guests to select from a list of signature appetizers or salads and four new entrees.

Also featured is the Braised Veal Pasta, savory pieces of slow-braised veal tossed with tender, fresh-herb pasta, mushrooms, spinach and topped with garlic and herb cheese. Other highlights include guest favorites of Chicken Romano with Angel Hair Pasta, Shrimp Scampi with Angel Hair Pasta and Chicken & Mushroom Lasagna.
For dessert, Maggiano's Menu For Two showcases an assortment of decadent options. Pick one regular serving size dessert to share, or four delectable mini-desserts including Tiramisu, Crème Brulee, Apple Crostada, Chocolate Zuccotto Cake, New York Style Cheesecake or try the Dessert of the Day.
