This is really good Italian food,huge portions, all homemade. The waitress was friendly and efficient. We have been in FL 4 days and this was our second visit. Will be coming back again.

Brought friends in for a steak calzone. So delicious, seasoned and prepared excellently. I haven't been to the restaurant in awhile but definitely was impressed with the food and service. Looking forward to another trip after or before a movie.

I just had the chicken Alfredo and OMG the best ever and the amount you get for the price. I would positively bring my family when they come down.

Had a family gathering and decided on Mama's for dinner. We had great pizza and great steak calzones with some really good antipasto salads! We were pleased with the price, the food and the service!

The pizza was great, the cheesy bacon fries were delicious, and the service was good. My 3 year old liked the waitress. He kept saying come here pretty lady.

We like fresh food and this pizza seemed old, too salty, floppy and toppings were cooked to the point we couldn't really tell they were there.

Had a large meat and veggie pizza from Mamas for the superbowl. It was cooked to perfection and very good. It was a little pricey by my standards, around $22 when all said it done. I ate half the pizza easily so therefore I guess it isn't that large. Will be going back if i can afford it.

We are happy that you enjoyed our pizza. Our large meat and veggie is $18.95 and is 16". We feel our price is fair for all the topping that are on this pizza. More

If you're new to Venice Florida, you have probably heard that good pizza is hard to come by. Mama Maria's is an exception to that warning. The pizza is East Coast Style (New York, New Jersey...etc. etc.) and very well made. The crust is exceptional. Good sized pizza for the price. Also, the Baked Ziti with Meatballs is very good....but... More

Mama Maria offers a variety of excellent pizza, Italian entrees, sandwiches and salads. We enjoy a crust that is a bit chewy, as theirs is. Unfortunately, their salad dressings are prepackaged. Their wines are awful. It's so disappointing for such a good restaurant to offer such bad wine. Great, hard-working staff. Always busy dining in as well as carry-out. Will... More
