This Italian restaurant offers very good food at reasonable prices but the interior needs updating. We thought it looked pretty tired.

We asked for a recommendation from locals before arriving in south haven; the Main Street shops are charming; we enjoyed seeing the sites but we're happy to find Maria's just one block south of the main intersection. We loved our dinner choices, delicious pizza (the large served our group) and the pasta with sauce was perfect. Hot bread sticks and... More

The food was great, and the cafe is super cute and in a great location. The only problem we had was the servers seemed to be too busy to take care of us. There was clearly animosity between some of the staff, and this seemed very unprofessional. We had to wait a long time to get waited on, and a... More

I love Maria's! The stuffed shells are delicious and usually what I order but honestly everything I've had has been great. The service is always good and the place is clean

We have eaten at Maria's on two different occasions! both times the food was very good, however the Pizza is excellent! Both times we were there, the carry-out business was really busy! After trying the pizza we understand, why it is so busy! if you are in the area , don't miss Maria's!!!!

This is your down home Italian restaurant. They have friendly service, great food, and a wide variety to pick from. They have gluten free options which are fabulous. You will not be disappointed. I love the outdoor seating in the summer. They were nice enough to bring out a water bowl for our puppy.

We finally tried Maria's after coming to South Haven for over ten years! Our wait wasn't long. Our server was attentive and saw to our every need. I had the pasta with meat sauce and it was very tasty. We'll be back.

Maria's was recommended by a local and we were not disappointed. The wait wasn't too long and we were able to explore an antique store across the street while we waited for a table. Their fresh baked bread, steaming and moist and sprinkled with parmesan was just amazing. Their dinner salads were simple (I would have liked to see a... More

We weren't sure if we were going to end up having dinner here as they originally told us it would be an hour wait. However, we lucked out and got a table in 20 minutes. We all enjoyed our pasta. Special note--I've tried a lot of gluten free pasta, and I would rate theirs as top-notch!

Quaint little spot and perfect to enjoy a glass of the house wine and the mussels. Wonderful spot with friendly service. But go if you are not on a schedule as service is relaxed.
