Dropped in for a beer. Got to know Nico. Saw Laura from the Sunrise...such a cutie. Unfortunately no matching sweater discount. Didn’t try the food, but maybe next time.

Came in on a Sunday afternoon for lunch when Grotto's was closed. Ordered pizza and fries. First, skip the fries if you go here. $6 for a basket of krinkle cut fries? I could have gone to the store and bought a couple bags of...More

Dewey Beach has its own personality. It doesn't compete with the more gentrified Rehoboth Beach nearby, and tends to just retain its somewhat retro vibe. Mama Maria is similar in that it retains its look, menu and approach to service from a long ago era....More

Been there several times because of convenient location. Not going any more though. Had a bad experience there last time. Hardly ever any other customers. Food is simply "just OK" and there are so many other places in Dewey that are great experiences.

Maybe the pizza is better, but the pasta, meatballs, and veal dishes were average at best. The sauces tasted like they were made from canned ingredients. Nothing like authentic Italian food. Very disappointing considering the high reviews.

Came out of the bars around Midnight with a craving for pizza, and this place fit the bill. Love having slices that are cooked twice, makes the crust nice and crispy.

Little pizzeria downtown Dewey. Good service, friendly. Pizza was OK at best. Pretty empty when we went. Wouldn't go again.
