Great Italian food, make sure you try the garlic bread, awesome!

We were just walking by and it looked nice, as it turned out it was great! The food, the service, the wine and the garlic bread, it was all fantastic. I don't even like garlic bread, but I loved this. The price was right too. Worth a try, I think you will love it.

The staff here was amazing, however the food did not live up to the hype for us. The BBQ pizza tasted like the sauce was made with pure sugar. Soup was to salty.

We chose Maria's almost by accident, but we are so glad we did! The pasta was fresh and outstanding: try the spinach ravioli! Also the bread sticks, fresh from the oven, are out of this world. They were very busy with a large party while we were there, but we still got good service. Save room for gelato. We will... More

This place is wonderful! My husband and I went for our anniversary dinner and many other dinners. Every time is great! The food is amazing. The price is a little high but it's Italian food and worth every penny! Perfect place for a romantic get away. Great staff wonderful service!

We came in after the movie and asked to make sure we could still order. Seated at a cute table by the window. Our server was very nice but there was a weird vibe, but it's hard to say when it's so close to closing time. The food it self was amazing. The sauce tasted fresh and homemade! I ordered... More

Enjoyed the combo pizza. Restaurant was out of mushrooms and asked us to pick another topping. Substituted for banana peppers. Excellent flavor, great crust. Our waitress was great. She was very friendly towards adults and kids. Enjoyed the meal and atmosphere of the restaurant.

We visited Maria's for the first time last weekend. My wife is gluten sensitive so we dine gluten free. We ordered a gluten free pizza with no idea what to expect. It is truly difficult to make good gluten free pizza crust. We were both excited to see a beautiful crust which was golden brown around the edge.(many times gluten... More

Coming from the Chicago area, we're spoiled with good Italian food, but Maria's was pretty darn good! But the service was great! I can't remember our servers name, but all of the servers were very polite and attentive! Says something about their management.

Best Italian restaurant in South Haven with the best prices for Italian. Small intimate space with outdoor eating in the summer. Short hours for summer they close too early. They now serve wine which with Italian you must have!!
