I have to say upfront that we have never eaten in the restaurant, but have ordered pizza for take out or delivery 3 times. The pizza is very good and there delivery service is quite prompt, arriving hot each time. This pizza is very much "Napoletana" style -- a thin crust with bubbled up edges -- not crispy, but quite...

Yes, I returned to Mama Maria's. When I have a craving for pizza this is the place to go. It is consistently good. Love the pizza dough and amount of cheese. They do not skimp on the toppings and there is always leftovers to take home and savor later. Can't resist. Service is also good and friendly.

I have only been there four maybe five times. Each time a joy. More than fair prices and way too much portions.

We ordered a simple pepperoni pizza and a "steak bomb" calzone with cheese. Both were really good! We requested the crust be cooked well. It was perfect! The calzone was loaded with steak, cheese, onions, peppers and cooked well. Enjoyed it very much. They have beer and wine. They have salads and pasta dishes. The owners lasagna is very popular...

My husband & I had heard the pizza was good at Mama Maria's & we were in the area & decided to stop in. It was pretty busy but we were able to be seated right away. We noticed a couple eating a pizza and didn't think we should have a whole pizza pie because it didn't look as thin... More

Normally I make my own pizza at home. But sometimes I don't have the time and the closest I can come is Mama Maria. The crust is great. We normally get the veg pizza and has a great fresh taste and, as I said a flavorful and chewy crust

We ate at mama's because our go to place was too crowded. However, the food was top quality, service good and very clean. We will now go here for Greek food instead of fighting the tourist on the sponge socks.

Why? Why do you have a gum chewing adolescent as the point of contact for your customers? Having to deal with the teenagers that answer the phone is not worth the aggravation. Having the phone slammed down in my ear after being asked to hold with haughty attitudinal tone is rude and not necessary. I will be spending my money... More

Mama Maria's is a great alternative for pizza delivery instead of the chain restaurants. Very fast service and pizza always arrives hot. Delicious!

We are originally from Boston and have found this place to have the BEST PIZZA. We live in Punta Gorda now, and will travel up to Venice just for the pizza. It is that good. The owner is from Boston, so we feel as if we are in the North End, at Pizzeria Regina's. You Bostonians know what that is!
