“Delicious pizza”
Reviewed October 1, 2012

This cozy Italian restaurant in downtown South Haven was crowded on a Monday evening in October, for good reason. The pizza we ordered was delicious and very reasonably priced as a special. The atmosphere was pleasing. Outdoor dining is also available. A good selection of Italian wines is a part of the attraction.

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We happened on Maria's by accident for a late lunch. The service, the food, the value,
the atmosphere and cleanliness were all topnotch. A quick bite turned into a long
leisurely experience reminiscent of the same in Italy. Highly recommend!

“Friend said eating outside reminded her of Paris”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

We ate outside at Maria's last weekend. I had a salad, which was huge. I ended up eating it for dinner and then splitting the leftovers for lunch the next day with a friend. My companion had the lasagna which she said was delicious. We always like eating outside when we can although the service was a little slower outside.

“Hidden treasure”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

This little Italian restruant is a hidden treasure. My husband and I had a nice romantic lunch here and the food was amazing! The service was very prompt, the dinning room was very quaint and comfortable. We now call this "our" special palce

“Dining”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

The food was excellent. When we walked in, there was one group ahead of us waiting for a table. We were told, 20 to 30 minute wait. (there were 4 of us). We waited an hour. As tables emptied they seated people according to how big the group was. They determined we would be seated at a certain table when the party occupying the table left. That party was visiting after their meal. The hostess apologized and blamed the problem on the other customers. We were only seated when a member of our group approached the hostess and requested to be seated at a different table. There were at least 6 groups seated ahead of us, some groups with 2 or 3 people, some groups with 5. The wait was 10 minutes for our drink order to be taken. Since we had waited so long we asked to order our food then as well. We were told we could order it but it woundn't be put in until another table's order (who came in 30 minutes after us) was placed because she "couldn't place two orders at once". We then waited for another 20 minutes for our food. So, on a non-busy night, 1 1/2 hour wait for food. Food was excellent but not at all worth the terrible service. We will never chose to dine there again.
