“Off the beaten path.......but worth a try”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

It's on Quincy Ave.,in an out of the way spot and somewhat difficult to find. Straight out of the 1970's Very retro decor. The food is a mix of Greek and Italian specialties, with seafood thrown in the mix. Despite the hodgepodge, they do what they do reasonably well. On this visit we had the shrimp scampi and the fish casserole(shripm, haddock and scallops). Both entrees were very flavorful and fresh. The portions are huge, so the odds are there will be leftovers. We skipped the dessert offerings, choosing another venue instead. The service was attentive and not overly rushed. The bill with the tip was just a shade under 50. USD. They do serve a full menu all day long, so if you're not sure what to have, it will be on the menu here. Enjoy.

“Best Italian on the South Shore, Best Muscles we've ever had too!”
Reviewed November 26, 2010

Walk into Maria's and you enter another time because nothing has changed for decades. Don't let the decor scare you away though, Maria's is not about wall decorations, they are about great food at a price that can't be beat.
Best Muscles we've ever had too! Get the muscles appetizer ($6.95!!!!!) and dump it over a side of pasta - BEST MEAL EVER!!! (not the healthiest either)
