It's not fancy but the food is good and it's a good place to go for a nice casual dinner. It can get busy on a weekend but if there is a wait, it's usually not a long one.

Thank you for reaching out to us with your feedback. Our number priority is that our guests always leave our restaurant feeling full and happy, and my mother, Maria, would not have it any other way! We hope to welcome you back soon! Grazie, Maddy

Unfortunately for us, we were here only for a light meal while visiting relatives, but we could tell with an appetizer, salad, complementary bread, and the light entree that this place served the real thing, in a quiet, laid-back atmosphere, prepared the real Italian way....More

Maria's is one of my favorite Italian food restaurants to visit. The location is convenient, service is prompt, and the food is high quality and served fresh.

So you want some decent Italian, but don't want to spend too much money and Olive Garden and Romano's Macaroni are definitely on the NO-GO list. Maria's Kitchen in Northridge is a good choice. Not fancy, but very filling and we had zero complaints. The...More

The appetizers are overpriced. We asked to make sure we were served the "large" portion of calamari, because the portion received was the amount expect for half the price. Don't bother with the house wine -- bland and watery. The "premium" wines on the short...More

We go to this Maria's about monthly... the food is generally good (and we really like the flatbreads with olive oil --- when they're served warm). Service is mostly good/efficient, but at times can be pretty poor -- this last time we didn't see our...More

Description
TO GET THE MOST AUTHENTIC ITALIAN FOOD, YOU NEED AUTHENTIC INGREDIENTS Maria’s Italian Kitchens is one of those grand American success stories. Maria’s Italian Kitchens often remind guests of the casual, sometimes boisterous, neighborhood eateries of another era. It began in the Italian quarter of Hoboken, New Jersey, where Madelyn’s mother, Maria, grew up learning the recipes for real Italian food of Naples from her mother, Luisa. This home-grown education in the fundamentals of Napolitano sauces, soups, dressings, ravioli, lasagna and other regional fare was put to delicious use in 1968 when the Alfano’s and their five young children moved to Los Angeles and bought a tiny grocery store called the “Village Mart” in L.A.’s prestigious Brentwood Village located at Barrington Street and Sunset Blvd. and converted the one car garage into the first Maria’s Italian Kitchen in 1975. She must have learned her lessons well because that first Maria’s Italian Kitchen was a huge success.
