When it comes to college students, our lives revolve around good prices, close proximity and fun atmospheres.

This is especially true when going out to restaurants with friends. So, what are the best places to eat around Cabrini University’s campus that check all of those boxes?

Alexis Capria, junior psychology major, said “The best meal I had was at Maggiano’s and it was their fettuccini alfredo dish with crispy chicken.”

Maggiano’s Little Italy is an Italian restaurant with “scratch-made Italian food, just like Nonna used to make.”

No matter who was asked where their favorite meal came from, they all answered Maggiano’s.

California Pizza provides indoor and outdoor seating and is located at 470 Mall Blvd. in King of Prussia Pa. They are open Sunday-Monday 11 a.m.-9 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m.-10 p.m.

No matter which place you pick though, you can grantee a great meal and fun experience.

Capria said she likes the variety of menu options each of the restaurants have to offer.

Hofner loves all of these places because they have great prices and atmospheres, “especially for a college student.” She said visits them “pretty often and have and will continue to recommend them to others.”

Capria and Lopez said they both love all of these options because they are close in proximity to Cabrini’s campus, and all have very friendly customer service from the moment you walk in the door.

So next time you’re on campus and don’t know where to go eat, here is a different restaurant for any type of craving you’re having that day. Try something different and visit one of these dining options.
