Maria's is one of the few great small italian family owned restaurants still remaining. It is definately worth trying. The first reviewer must have gotten a certain server there whom I've gotten before, unfortunately her service really affects your experience there (she's in her late forties or so, dark hair and has been there for years) The last time I was unfortunate enough to get her she forgot to take one of our orders, forgot to put our order in, everything she brought to the table was accompanied by "Did you order this?", We had to ask for bread, despite all of our water glasses being empty she came over and filled only one then wandered off to talk with a friend never to return. I agree her service is consistently poor. Don't let that stop you though. The rest of the staff I've found excellent and the food is great. I'd highly recommend Maria's. I would give them five stars instead of four, but for the waitress issue, without her it's a five, with her a two.
