We were told that a half an hour wait for a table no big deal. When she called a group of 3 instead of our group of 2 and we had been waiting 10 minutes longer we questioned the girl. I was told that they had a table for three and not for two so they got to go first.... More

We wanted to order a pizza one night, and chose Maria's based on reviews. My husband said there were a couple of staff members bickering at each other for awhile in front of him when he was waiting. But other than that, the pizza was ready on time, and it was delicious. So no complaints.

Great food! We stepped inside the atmosphere seemed nice but we couldn't stay. We needed to do carryout. I ordered baked spaghetti with homemade meatballs and my husband ordered cheese tortellini with crumbled sausage. They both came with a bread stick and salad. We also ordered the hot fudge sunday cheesecake. Everything was Delish! Great meal all around and great... More

This little restaurant is just off Phoenix St. The Italian food is authentic, homemade and delicious! The owner is in the kitchen (always a good sign). The Grouper was the best I have ever had. Ditto re the homemade bread sticks. The staff is warm and "hometown" friendly. Limited sidewalk seating. And GELATO for dessert. Yum!

This place is just fabulous. Our best dining experience while on vacation in South Haven. I was a chef in various Italian restaurants for several years. Further, our family tends to focus on Italian dining options when we go out...my wife is Italian. We usually look for non-chain type options where we can find authentic cuisine. This place is all...

Good basic local Italian restaurant. Service was very good. We had lasagna, stuffed shells and chicken parmesan. My favorite was the lasagna, which was made with a house-made sausage.
