“Best Pizza in Town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

We always take out. Very small seating area. Plan on take-out only. Pizza is great, and is ready when they tell you how long it will take, so be there at that time.

“Best Sauce in Elmhurst”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2014

In my opinion, Mama Maria's has the best sauce of the Italian restaurants in Elmhurst. The lasagna, gnocchi, and ravioli are outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of the pizza, since the crust can be a bit chewy. My friend Nick said to ask for it 'well done' and it comes out much better. This is pretty much a take-out place, but there are a few tables. If you want to sit down, they have another location in Bensenville that's very nice and the food is the same high quality.

Anyhow, there are seventy-one restaurants in Elmhurst, as of this writing. I plan on eating at, and reviewing, every one. For my complete list see 'eatingelmhurst.blogspot.com'

“That's Italian”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

The food was excellent. The best arrabbiata sauce EVER ! However, the downfall to the restaurant is the size of the seating area - ITsa Toooo Small. What a shame since the food was so good. A new breezeway would help to minimize the cold from entering the dinning room as well. Enough negativity about the layout ~ order the food and take it home you'll be glad you did.

“"Doing everything right"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Our first time to this local favorite was a pleasant one and we only went because our grandkids wanted to go. We didn't expect much, but we were pleased with the great service, the atmosphere was upbeat, and then the pizza was very good. Lots of cheese, sauce and added ingredients, not skimpy. Prices are very reasonable and the seating is cozy. There are not a lot of tables, but smaller is quality and many pizza places are usually carry out anyway so having some table space is a plus. Lots of personal touch and overall a good experience, deserving a good review. They have been there a long time and that's a good sign. Keep up the good work Mamma Maria"s Pizza!!
