A quaint and small building, this restaurant has been in the Cape for many years. This restaurant offers a wide selection of Italian food including pizzas, of course. The portions are huge! Everything was very tasty! The server was very nice and helpful. I also have ordered carryout it was ready when I arrived and the website used to order... More

Went to check this out w friends. The service was very good, nice setting, good music but the food was average. Had the baked penne and salad. It was fine but had no flavor. The penne had way to much cheese. Huge portion. Salad was basic ice berg salad with a couple of cucumbers. Dressing was pretty bad. Bread was... More

I'm happy your friends brought you out to visit us, but it's a shame you weren't completely satisfied by the level of flavor in your baked penne and salad. We put a lot of care and effort into our cooking, but maybe that didn't come across the last time you stopped by. Consider giving us another shot so we can... More

Try the chicken parm. It's really good. There was a mixup with the order and due to the delay we got 3 free meatballs. The salad with basalmic was passable but nearly all lettuce with few veggies. Still, the meal was very good. Nice fresh rolls.

Overall, we liked this very much. A cute, clean, nicely decorated restaurant a couple of blocks off the main drag in Downtown Cape Coral. Has been operating for 25 years. Tables decorated with paper that they throw away after each guest. May be known more for their pizza, but we went primarily with traditional Italian. The garlic rolls that they... More

I ordered online and the site was easy to use... after reading the reviews and checking out the website I had to order because I like simple things and ordering was just that. Got there waited a few minutes. I got the family special a large Pizza +pepperoni, 20 wings, and a calzones with pepperoni and sausage. It was definitely... More

I'll never understand why people flock to the chains, when there are excellent neighborhood type restaurants nearby. Maria's is one such place. From the fabulous garlic rolls, with herbed dipping oil, to the delightful lasagna, I was not disappointed. Additionally, the fried calamari, accompanied by a wonderful marinara sauce, was tender, and not at all greasy. Service was attentive. I... More

It truly was a great dining experience! We got dinner a little late. But the staff was happy to serve us. I had the special Chicken Parm. It was out of this world! Really!

I love endorsing and supporting the small restaurants that are local and aren't chains but I just can't get behind this one. We went with a large group for a celebration and the meal just wasn't good sadly. The waiter was courteous and prompt and tried his hardest to make the best of the situation but at the end of...

Beautiful casual atmosphere, family friendly, and very knowledgeable server, Thomas. Spicy marinara made calamari and seafood pasta outstanding. Maria's calzone is awesome. We have lived in the area for 15 years, and this restaurant is an immediate favorite! We write this as we eagerly await the canolis!
