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.

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.

Maria's is in a small plaza off Mebane Street, within sight of Huffman Mill Road and Lowe's Home Improvement. I like to start with the fried calamari (which we share), and particularly enjoy the Chicken Cacciatori. My wife enjoys the Chicken Parm. The sauces and gravies are like GOOD home made that your Nona used to make. The Italian food... More

Good place to eat pasta with a salad for $6 on Mondays! Your beverage will be extra, but the food is pretty good for the price--and it gets fancy with white tablecloths on the table!

I have eaten here with friends and family several times and am amazed with the quality of the food at very economical prices!! The Monday senior night menu has delicious options such as lasagna and salad for $6.50. You can't beat that price! The portofino chicken is so delicious! Great bread served with the entrees. Indeed one of the best... More

We met a family member here for dinner. Very nice atmosphere. Quiet restaurant. Food was good. Service was very good. This is a small local restaurant which seems to be popular with people we know from the area. Convenient location not too far from the Hampton on I40.

Maria's Cafe has among the best Italian food I've ever had. The atmosphere is nice, cozy and quiet. Wine selection is good. Everything on the menus is fresh ingredients and great food. The marina sauce is home-made and wonderful. It's in a small strip center, off the beaten path so kinda hard to find but well worth it. Take advantage... More

We go there a couple times per month. I don't see how you can beat the prices. It's our favorite Italian food in the area but we don't get too far from the basic Italian stuff and don't order steaks for sure. The service is fast and never a problem. I love their Lasagna which comes to the table still... More
