When we pulled up in the taxi I didn't know if we were at the right spot because it really looks like someone's house as it wasn't marked at all. We rang the buzzer and were promptly greeted and taken to our table. The tables are set up on the back porch. It doesn't have the ambiance like some of... More

My mom is 100% Italian and I won't say this to her face but Anna-Maria's cooks better than she does! Best meal you will have on the island with incrediable service and even better incrediable meal. Each time I go I get the same thing- Clams and Linguini my husband loved the chicken pene pesto, and of course we get... More

Great atmosphere and terrific food. Lasagna was the best. Service was great but don’t expect your order to be quick as food is made to order, This is a home restaurant of eight tables in a back yard patio. A little pricey for italian food but was worth it.

We can't wait to go to our favorite Italian Restaurant on the island. This will be our 4th year in a row. The food is fabulous and is priced very well. The service is great and the owners are so friendly. You will not be disappointed at Anna Maria's.

I have reviewed Anna Maria's many times and have loved all of my experiences. Sometimes its hard to keep doing reviews after each visit and always give the same glowing responses. I wasn't going to make another review after my last visit but in reading the last report I felt compelled. Some of our families favourite dishes at Anna Maria's... More

I want to start off by saying we first went to this restaurant in 2011. We thought the food was good to great. Not super outstanding but really good and the service was great. We met the owner who told us his entire story and let us come in where we met his staff and his 2 dogs. I have... More

I know some people love this restaurant, but our experience was not memorable. It is located on the back patio of, what seems to be a private home. From our perspective the ambiance left much to be desired and was airless on a hot evening. We got there at 7 pm and had to wait until 8 pm to get... More

Dear Peter, We’re sorry your experience wasn’t a memorable one with us but to say that you know that ‘some people' love us, I believe you’re understating yourself in what you believe you know and what is reality. Unfortunately we do not serve ‘fast food’ prepared in the morning, heated in a convectional oven when ordered and served within 20... More
