OC Weekly's Description

Paninoteca Maggio’s espresso, derived from a gargantuan machine out of out of a steampunk novel, but it’s more than a donkey kick to the senses: Maggio’s espresso is creamy, earthy, just slightly bitter, a liquid live wire that rivals Portola and Keán for the best espresso in Orange County. The namesake paninis are a small list that makes up for lack of choices with flavors that play off each other with the ease of a Puccini libretto. An Amalfi features salty prosciutto, musky mozzarella, biting arugula, and the tang of pesto, balsamic, and tomatoes; the Toscana’s slow-roasted porchetta radiates with garlic; a meatball sandwich is so fluffy, so juicy, that you want to barge into the kitchen to see if Barshishat’s nona is there making everything.
