My wife and I just finished an excellent meal. My chicken rustico was of immense proportions, delightfully flavored and a real pleasure. Ditto for my wife's Salmon Portofino. Service was very good and the place is located off of Exit 137 on I81 so access is easy. If you like Italian food that is not straight from a can, this... More

This was a disappointment. I was hoping for something better than generic Italian. Unfortunately not so.

Our server was very good! Our food was excellent, the salad was fresh, the bread sticks were delicious and our entrees were amazing! Our only regret was we were too full for dessert!

Dinner for three. We were promptly seated and greeted by our server Alfedo. The food was outstanding. I had the Salmon, my wife had the chicken parm, and our cousin had a pizza. The portions are LARGE and very delicious. We will definitely make this a regular dinner option every time we are in Salem.

Tonight we ate at Mama Maria's. We travel annually in Italy and were pleased to have a waiter, Alfredo, whose first language is Italian. We spoke and ordered in Italian (and he was able to figure out what we were really saying) and offered excellent suggestions. The food, veal Domenico and Chicken Francese were excellent. The house chianti was fruit... More

We have driven by this place before and not even considered venturing inside but last night we decided to give it a try and we were pleasantly surprised. Nice greeting, led to a booth, served drinks and dipping bread, which was nice. Started with lobster bisque which was very nice and the Caesar salad also was nicely prepared. Mama Maria's... More

You'll love the food AND the prices at Mama Maria's. While the "regular" menu is very reasonably priced, the senior menu is an even better bargain. The food is very tasty and the service is excellent as well. So no reason to look further for a great Italian meal in Salem. Oh....the gelato is a fantastic way to end your... More

This is a Real Italian Restaurant just waiting for you to try it out! The Service was Outstanding and our Server really was working hard with 16 of us eating there. I had to have the Lobster Ravioli with Shrimp and a red Lobster Sauce and I did not go wrong! The meal was hot and I had to stand... More

This was my third experience here. The food here is always great! This is a gem! From time to time things can be too salty but over all very good! Service was great too!
