Description: TO GET THE MOST AUTHENTIC ITALIAN FOOD, YOU NEED AUTHENTIC INGREDIENTS Maria’s Italian Kitchens is one of those grand American success stories. Maria’s Italian Kitchens often remind guests of the casual, sometimes boisterous, neighborhood eateries of another era. It began in the Italian quarter of Hoboken, New Jersey, where Madelyn’s mother, Maria, grew up learning the recipes for real Italian food of Naples from her mother, Luisa. This home-grown education in the fundamentals of Napolitano sauces, soups, dressings, ravioli, lasagna and other regional fare was put to delicious use in 1968 when the Alfano’s and their five young children moved to Los Angeles and bought a tiny grocery store called the “Village Mart” in L.A.’s prestigious Brentwood Village located at Barrington Street and Sunset Blvd. and converted the one car garage into the first Maria’s Italian Kitchen in 1975. She must have learned her lessons well because that first Maria’s Italian Kitchen was a huge success.

We were staying in the area so wanted somewhere casual and in walking distance.

Had the Margherita pizza which was good. It measured up to pizza that one gets in NYC.

We ate early so place was not busy. Wait service was fast.

This tiny spot in Brentwood was so great for my nephews birthday dinner! We had a party of 12 and they had a long table waiting. Service was great, friendly on the phone and in person! The food was super! The rosemary bread and calamari were delicious! The Caesar salads were great as was the pasta! The prices were fair and portions were large. I’d certainly go back!

I had the chicken paramegana with pasta and hubby had an Italian Sausage pasta. The sauce on the chicken and the pasta was quite bland..had to ask for salt which I never do! His was a bit better. We had a GREAT server, however the other servers at other tables were quite inattentive and even rude at times. I don't think I would come back.
