We were seated quickly. Our server showed up after a short time, stated she had two other tables to tend to and would be back. Fifteen minutes later she returns. Beverage order and dinner order given. Salads arrived before our beverages did. NO beverage refill ever offered by our server. The salad was minimal and drenched in salad dressing. Soggy... More

Had a birthday dinner here with friends. No wait on a Saturday night at 5:30pm. Fast courteous service. Big portions and great specials. Good value for the money!

I've passed this place dozens upon dozens of times but always passed it by because I thought it was a dull little place that needed renovating. Perhaps it does need renovating but the food is fabulous and the prices reasonable. I had one of the... More

From the food (go for Maria's lasagna) to the servers who were really attentive when they noticed I was pregnant, the experience was phenomenal. It was a quick visit but I will not only recommend but be back, very... More

Pleasantly surprised with the seemingly home style cooking, but the restaurant has not been renovated in years. Waitstaff is great!

My mom and dad used to take me here a long time ago and it was great then. After all these years its still as good as it was. Good old fashion Italian food cooked to order and excellent to eat. Very small inside but cozy and quaint. You'll get to rave about your meal with other patrons. Not many... More

As always our meals were superb! The staff was knowledgeable about menu and always treats you like you are the first customer! I always recommend the food and you should work your way through the menu as we have to find your favorites. A few of our favorites is there famous Greek salad, bread, Shrimp Parmigiana, Chicken & Ravioli Parmigiana,... More

We had not been to Maria's in years, so we gave it another try. It is old school neighborhood Italian restaurant atmosphere. The prices are reasonable, but was disappointed in the food. Not great, not terrible, just average. Would rather spend a little more and go somewhere else for great.
