Great food

They have the best gnocchi and vodka sauce. And a great bartender named Nico. I come here every time I am in Dewey. Love the place.

WOW! What an Italian feast I had! Drove up to Dewey Beach from Ocean CIty with some friends and WOW was it worth the drive! Their home made salad dressing was bursting with flavor. The red sauce is amazing! The wait staff was friendly, thorough and efficient. The atmosphere is warm and cozy. Did I mention the lemoncello cake and... More

Last Sunday I ate at Mamma Maris's with a group of 6 friends. We had a great time! The food was excellent- I had the shrimp and linguine - delicious (lots of giant shrimp)! It was too much for one meal so I had it for lunch the next day too. We had calamari and bruschetta for appetizers and the... More

Mama Maria's is a favorite of ours! It is family owned & operated and you are always treated well. They offer a full menu of traditional Italian dishes as well as daily specials. Their home made spaghetti sauce has a wonderful flavor! We also love their home made Italian dressing. Our favorite dishes are clams & linguini, Antipasti, & Mama's... More

We stop in to mama Maria's every time we come to Dewey. The food is great every time and Niko is the best bartender!! Try the eggplant rollata. After dinner ask for a shot ski!! Tons of fun at the beach.

Our large group visited Mama Maria's for breakfast. I think it might have been new for them. I asked to add cheese to my omelet and was told that the cook really didn't do well with modifications. I quickly changed my order to something that I didn't need to get modified. Odd that all of the breakfast plates that included... More

We have been coming to Dewey Beach for many years, and have always had a great experience at Mama Maria's. We have said for years that could eat every meal from Mamas. This is coming from a crew that migrated to Maryland from Long Island and New Jersey and KNOW GOOD ITALIAN FOOD. The owner is deeply involved in making... More

Mama Maria's is the perfect place to go visit! It's a friendly place with excellent food and a most talented bartender! If you are in the area it is worth stopping in. Be sure to do the shot ski!!!

The place was nearly empty when we entered. We should have taken it as a warning. The lasagna was huge but jar sauce would have been better. The Marsala was under seasoned and the chicken was rubbery tasted and had the mouth feel of a frozen precook end cutlet. Last time I ate something this bad was in the military,... More
