Have the party catered by marias.

Party planning is stressful enough. If i can save time, stress and clean up mess i will. Hours before my xmas party i called for several pans of food. Marsala, baked ziti, chicken parm. It was so easy, yummy, great value, and everyone got to take leftovers.

As I entered this restaurant, I felt like I stepped back to the 70's. Maybe that's great for some people. The food itself was average in taste even though the portion size was big. My meal tasted like it was fresh out of a box. I had to continue to add spice to my food because the sauce didn't have... More

Love their Pizza , nice crunchy crust.and plenty of topping. If you want a good meal in a homey and friendly setting go to Maria's . We... More

If you like butter congealing on your plate, like mushy Risotto cannot understand your partner because kids are screaming, this is the place for you. Highly overrated.

We happen to be in Braintree and wanted to avoid the traffic so we decided to have some dinner before hitting the road. Since we are not familiar with the area we used Trip Advisor to choose a place and the good reviews made us come here. Initial impressions were good as the place has a real retro old greek... More

Travelling from Logan Airport one early evening to our Harwich home we stopped at Maria's in Braintree for dinner. Just what we wanted: "Old fashioned" red sauce Italian food. Good, and plenty of it for very reasonable prices. None of we four finished our dinners; only half each and so enjoyed another dinner in Harwich of the orders. All was... More

We ended up here because of a timing issue for dinner in Boston. What a gem! If you are looking for down home Italian cooking,this is your place. Who needs Boston's prices - you won't be disappointed!

Had the Lobster Ravioli with Vodka Sauce, and my wife had the Seafood Alfredo with Linguini. Both were outstanding, and came with a salad & bread. Good portions, we did not leave hungry! Service was excellent and the food came out fast. Not foodie-gourmet by any means, just good old fashioned comfort Italian/Greek.
