Maggiano’s Little Italy® Celebrates First Grand Opening in Kansas

Maggiano’s Little Italy® will open its first Kansas location today, paying homage to Overland Park’s rich Italian-American history. Maggiano’s prides itself on its made-from-scratch dishes, based on recipes that have been passed down through generations of Italian families and are now being shared outside of Nonna’s kitchen. At the helm of Maggiano’s newest location are Executive Chef Randal Wheeler and Managing Partner Sergio Tibavisky. 

“We are excited to add to Overland Park’s already burgeoning Italian community with our own version of Italian-American comfort food – served with passionate hospitality in a space that we call home,” said Tibavisky. “As we open our doors to the community, our hope is that Maggiano’s becomes a place for Kansas Citians to celebrate special milestones or nights out with family and friends.”

Guests are seen as an extension of the Maggiano’s family, treated to home-cooked Italian classics. Each dish is made with high-quality seasonal ingredients, giving them a new twist depending on time of year. Furthering Maggiano’s tailor-made culinary traditions, Executive Chef Randal Wheeler conducts tableside visits and can customize recipes according to Guests’ dietary needs and preferences. 

Maggiano’s Grand Opening officially kicks off with a traditional “Pasta Cutting” ceremony. Noted community leaders have been invited, to help establish the restaurant as part of the Overland Park family, meet with the leadership team and enjoy some authentic, Italian-American cuisine. All qualifying proceeds from Grand Opening events will be donated to the local Make-A-Wish® chapter. 

The 8,486-square-foot restaurant opens at 7025 W 135th St., near the Corbin Park retail development. This Overland Park location will serve as Maggiano’s 53rd restaurant across 22 states and the District of Columbia.

Wow, that’s amazing. We too have been trying to find some nice rooftop event venue New York for my bachelorette bash. I want a beautiful venue that also offers custom decorations. I was just wondering if you could help me find such a spot!
