“Run of the mill spaghetti Italian”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The veg wrap was generous and fresh. That's about the only thing on the menu that was interesting. It's a step up, though, from the other Italian restaurant in town. Service was very very slow.

“Good Italian food”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Maria's is locally owned and operated. Their pizza is good, breadsticks phenomenal, and their wild mushroom ravioli absolutely delicious. For lunch, try their Capaccio sandwich!

“Yummy!”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

Good quality homemade food. Pizza and breadsticks were very good, and we are picky Chicago pizza eaters. My daughter loved the fact that the root beer brand she had donates money to charity. It was a busy day there and their delivery truck didn't show up that day so they were out of several items, but the service was friendly.

“Good, but not Great”
Reviewed July 15, 2013

After having a few friends recommend Maria's we tried it on a Friday night. The wait was about 30 minutes, and they offer to call us when our table was ready; a great service. We walk to Black Root tavern for cocktails, then came back for our table. When we came back, the seating had opened up, and there was no line. I had a glass of their house red wine, which was good, since they do not offer beer. We ordered the antipasto salad to start, which was average. I expected a better salad dressing. It would feed 4 people. Plus the plates were plastic, picking I know, but real plates would be nice. The crab bisque soup was very good, along with the service.
I tried the Sicilian dinner, because I always want to try the marinara and sausage. Which let me down. They were not bad, but the sausage didn't have the outstanding flavor and the red sauce was fresh tasting. The sauce did not have the depth and taste I expected. The linguine with shrimp was excellent. Bread sticks came with the meal as well. We will be back to try more dishes. It is worth a second chance.
