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.

We have been coming here for over a decade and the food never is less than amazing!! Def feel like a "local italian" here at this restaurant.

Our plan to grill fell through, so we were in a pinch for dinner on a Saturday night. We stopped here because we saw that there was a carry out in addition to the sit down restaurant. There's a parking lot behind the restaurant for customers only, so avoid the meter and park there. The prices are pretty steep ($16... More

Our family made a rather large carry-out order which included cold Italian sub, hot Chicken Parm sub, hot cheese steak sub, italian saussage sub, green bean in marinara, french fries, tiramisu and cannoli deserts. All were pretty tasty according to my wife and kids.

I have thrown down the gauntlet!! there is no better fried calamari in the whole world...and I didn't even like Calamari until tasting Frank's(the professionally trained chef/owner). His sauce is just awesome. The one great thing I noticed, probably because he IS professional, is he has a sauce for many different dishes...He doesn't just use one tomato sauce for every... More

Food is ok. Late night takeout isnt the best but sit down is pretty good. None of this matters when you go into the beach bar and hang out with Deweys International Man of Mystery Nico Suave slinging the drinks. Nico doesn't serve you drinks, he lights your night on fire and blows it out with awesome. He fights bears... More

Thought we'd stop in for a nice italian meal but were so very disappointed. The service was terrible. The waiter was actually rude (not only to us). He actually made a comment to a couple behind us when he cleared their salad plates that "wow, you really scarfed those down". He forgot our drinks altogether until I reminded him after... More
