The penne A La Vodka is my favorite dish, but most everything is excellent. Not the most atmosphere but the food makes up for any shortcomings in that department.

This is a small-to-medium-size, plaza-based storefront restaurant. About 16 tables; glass over white linen tablecloths. Full menu. Lunch menu plates are in the $7.50 range. There is one busy waitress and another lady who roams around refilling drinks etc. We were here for a weekday lunch (far from our first time). The restaurant was nearly full. We received the customary... More

Maria's Cafe used to be one of my favorite places to go for a special occasion, but not anymore. I'm not sure what internally has changed, but it's not the same. The last couple of times the service was slow, even though there were only a few people in the restaurant and they would not allow me to get the... More

Since moving to NC about 8 months ago, we have been searching for a really good Italian restaurant. Well, we finally found it. The food is fantastic, from the appetizer to the salad to the main course. You can tell the ingredients are fresh, and the portion sizes are plentiful. Our server was wonderful, very friendly and attentive. She never... More

Maria's Café consistently provides outstanding service with great food. We go at least twice a month and are never disappointed. It is nice to go to an authentic Italian restaurant where the owner is actually Italian and comes out occasionally to ask for feedback and greet his patrons.

My husband and I discovered Maria's a few years ago and we are so glad we did! It's our favorite place for a nice, quiet dinner....whether just because or for a special occasion. Nice ambiance and great food, good prices too!

Maria's is basic Italian dining with a little dash of class thrown in. The food is generally good, though hardly great. The prices are good. We usually dine here three or four times a year.

VERY nice atmosphere, very clean, super service and GREAT good and affordable prices...my favorite place for Italian in this area. Not a lot of seating, but worth it if you have to wait. Great date place or business lunch/dinner as well. Highly recommend this to anyone who loves real Italian...not the frozen stuff at the chain.

Went there with members of family and had a very relaxed meal. The service was good and the food was very good. I would go back again.
