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

Went to Anna Marias for the first time tonight and I will most definitely be going back and telling all my friends about it. The ambiance, Menu and the People are great! The owners do all of the cooking and they even make time to stop by your table and have a conversation which is so nice, it's not often... More

This restaurant was introduced to me by word of mouth and it is definitely a place to visit more than once. The owner, wife, and staff are incredibly nice and make you feel like an old family friend. We had a party of four all of whom had different dishes and we all loved our food. We shared a pitcher... More

Ate here tonight with friends and family at the recommendation of said friends, good Italian food and cooked to order fresh. Several people had the lasagne and several people had the spaghetti a la carbonara, which everyone liked. I had the fish in lemon and butter which was excellent.

This restaurant is definitely worth the trip. It is authentic Italian food. Plan to relax and enjoy the homey atmosphere. We will return. The chef was friendly and a most gracious host. He invited us into the kitchen and it was amazing. I would highly recommend!

We love italian food and have been to italy twice to explore the culture but mainly to eat and drink to our heart's content. The house was a 2-3 minute drive from the ritz in... More

Our dinner at Anna Maria's was perfection. Slow paced dining without being rushed......as the food is made fresh when ordered. While sitting at your table, you can glance into the pristine kitchen and know that your food is in "good hands." The owner Chris greets every table at the end of the evening and is personable, charming and talented in... More
