I just went back here with a second date after bringing a different woman here a week ago. Had the same waiter and he remembered me and had the class not to mention the other date or mistakenly call her by the other's name. He even went out of his way to make me feel like a big shot. LOL.

That's not why I cam back, though. The food here is great. I had the Vodka penne, which was out of this world and my date had the Strawberry salad - same exact thing the other date had. They both loved it. It was fresh and crisp and very flavorful.

Definitely come here for the food and you'll love the service as well!

Oh, and the other reviewer who gave it a bad review complained about pizza.... Maria's doesn't serve pizza and never has. That bad review is either a competitor or someone who got it mixed up with another Maria's.

“A True Haven in the middle of an enormous, bustling city”
Reviewed November 13, 2010

We went to Maria's on Saturday 11/6 AND Sunday 11/7 after two very heartbreakingly difficult days. On both occasions, Maria's felt like a haven...the next best thing to home. The staff was polite and kind (and incredibly handsome!). The food was absolutely delicious, reasonably priced and the service was efficient. Our only complaints were that there was TOO much food (and we were travelling, so couldn't take a doggy bag home) and the wine selection was very minimal. We absolutely LOVED Maria's and highly recommend it to anyone wanting straightforward, well-prepared Italian fare in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
