My family and I relish our multi-year visits to Rehoboth Beach and to Mama Maria's on Dewey Beach. They have the usual Delaware beach fare (i.e., grinders/subs, pizza, fries), all good, especially the home baked breads. But we come for the eggplant Parmiggiana. Have not found a better one anywhere... read more

I ordered a pizza for take-out while at the 20th annual Greyhounds Reach the Beach in Dewey this year. The pizza wasn't very good(rubbery crust and very little tomato sauce), it was the most expensive pizza I'd ever bought and the counter person practically threw it at me with a surly comment when I picked it up.

Vacationed in Dewey Beach and ate at Mama Maria's at least 4 times and had drinks at the bar. Every meal was delicious the Lasagna, Steak and Cheese Subs, Chicken Alfredo, Pizza, French Fries and Onion Rings. Very friendly atmosphere for all ages. Tasty food for everyone. Mama Maria's is the place you want to return to for a meal... More

Had dinner here the night of our granddaughter's birthday as she wanted pizza! Dined early so very few other diners there - seated immediately. Friendly waitress who was attentive without hovering. Enjoyed the calamari, cheese sticks and bruschetta appetizers. Pizza was good - nice crust and generous toppings. 4 adult entrees were all generous portions and delicious!

We were there to enjoy our family and remember the patriarch of our family. Two days of fun. It started with watching the World cup and ended with our last night there. Even though an hour before we had spent $200 at the liquor store we all decided to go to the bar and be served by Nico. And the... More

This pizza was Fabulous! Most delicious new york style pizza I have EVER had! Bartender Nico was a sweetheart! Friends opted for chicken francaise, which they raved about. Tried a delightful appetizer of steamed clams with delicate bits of garlic in a light wine sauce sprinkled with parsley, a side of fresh baked bread came with order. Prices reasonable.

Our family ate at Mama Maria's and we were more than pleased with the quality of the food. We tried the stuffed pizza which was very tasty. Also, the calamari and onion rings were perfectly done. Several of us had the zuppa (seafood with pasta) and were very impressed. The lasagna, black mussels, and the chicken frances were all excellent.... More

We went to Mama Maria's because of the great reviews. We didn't agree. It started with a dirty fork. The service was average as was the food. My daughters ziti was really watery and flavorless. My spaghetti and meatballs were average as was my husband's Italian sandwich. We have had much better other places. The rolls were burned (black burn... More

Food was average. Pizza was New York style. Very greasy. Staff was friendly. Pizza was average at best. The worst part was the old guy working behind the counter was eating pizza with his hands and preparing people's food. That was completely disgusting. He never washed his hands. The soda machine needed calibrated because the diet drink I ordered was... More
