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

We were out of towners there for a family reunion. Mama Maria's Restaurant and Beach Bar was conveniently located right opposite the motel we were staying at. First day there, we met the Bartender Nico along with some other people who introduced us to a fun game of Left, Right, Center. The drinks were really good, the bar definitely was... More

Excellent pizza. Extremely rude man at the pizza counter. Every year we eat there and every year he is rude. We shouldn't go back but the pizza is really great.

This review is for the sister establishment in Milford, DE. If you like NYC pizza, you'll have a very hard time finding anything worthwhile in DE until you visit Mama Marias. I started coming here back in 2005 while in the area for business and we return here while on vacation at the beach every year. This place is consistent,... More

Five of us went in on a Saturday night at 7pm. To our surprise there was no wait. Our server was friendly and the food was prompt. Everyone enjoyed their meals ranging from stuffed shells to Stromboli. Portions were plenty and it was under $90 for us all to eat.
