Wonderful little Italian place!

This place is just down the street so I visit it very often. Most of the items are the same as any other Italian restaurant except the Chicken Marsala, it is the best I've ever had ANYWHERE! The chicken comes cut into smaller pieces on a bed of spaghetti noodles with a creamy marsala sauce. I've... read more

I travel to Staunton every two months for an over night stay. Recently I discovered Maria's Pizza and Italian Restaurant and was completely blown away by the taste of a sausage and mushroom calzone. This listes as was a single serving, but it was quite large and would be enough for two if they were not starving. I didn't have... More

Decided to have a late dinner and we picked Maria's. We ordered 2 large pizzas with a couple different toppings . The waitress was attentive and was very nice. About 20mins later the pizza came out. They looked great and were very good. I had family from New Jersey in and they loved it as well. Maria's was clean and... More

I can honestly say I have never had anything bad from Maria's and I dine there frequently! I love their cheese steak subs, pizza (Peter's Special is my favorite pie!) Stromboli and my favorite entree is the chicken marsala! Most everything is made in house, from scratch, even the Caesar salad dressing! I do think prices are a bit high... More

I was in the mood for a good calzone and I wasn't disappointed. I ordered the individual serving size and it was all that I could eat. I had a calzone with double sausage and single mushrooms. It was perfect! Hot, done, not burned, with a side of delicious sauce. I had two classes of wine, a cupcake for dessert... More

We had their pizza Margherita and it was delicious! Crispy crust, sweet tomato sauce with fresh hunks of mozzarella, fresh slices of tomatoes and fresh basil leaves on top. Very tasty! The restaurant was clean, the bathroom was clean and the server was friendly!

Had an early dinner recently and can recommend the calzone -- the classic or original (can't recall what they call it) was filled with lots of ingredients -- mushrooms, onions, green peppers, at least two, maybe three meats) and quite good sized (in fact, I think two diners could happily split one 'personal' sized one. The waitress (who was also... More

Maria's has a lot of potential. It's not hard to see the vibe they're going for-- authentic, classy, Italian. They unfortunately miss the mark. The bad Italian pop music is more amusing or annoying than it is a transport to an authentic Italian atmosphere and the food was good but far short of amazing. In the end they seem to... More

Decided to stop here with family for lunch. Waitress was very nice. Ordered cheesesteak and fries and baked ziti. Cheesesteak was good but a little pricey for lunch. The baked ziti the other person ordered looked nice and he seemed to enjoy it. Will be back to try out other items. I don't want to say authentic Italian but close.
