We visited for a mother's day dinner. I have to admit we thought we made reservations at another restaurant by the same name. Pleasant mistake. Nothing fancy but out of 8 of us everyone was happy. The service was great and the owner ( I think) came out to see how we enjoyed the dinner. Thanks Mama Maria's Elmhurst!

This was a childhood place of mine. I've known the owners forever. I always stop in here when I am in town. Pizza is a must. If you do not want to share, get a baked panzerotti. It's like a pizza that is baked just for you. The food is awesome here too. You cannot miss with anything here.

A regular visit and makes a nice easy place to grab great pizza and pasta. We make it a adventure hike on the prairie path and eat it or just take out, it is just about 1/2 block off the Prairie path and York road on Vallette..

I have always lived by one belief. If is really hard to screw up pizza. Its one of the things that tastes good to me cold or hot, thick or thin, so its a touch food for me to review. That being said, my son and I ate here on a visit to the college last week and were blown... More

This place has been a staple since I was younger. The pizza is the best! I recommend a baked panzerotti. They make them the best, and all ingredients are fresh. Their catering menu is very good and is always a time saver for hosting large parties.

I love pizza from mama Maria's. I think they are the best pizza in the suburbs. I have ordered from other pizza places around where I live and no pizza like mama Maria's. Perfect crust every time. The taste is the same every time.

I've lived here for 20+ years now and pizza parlors come and go. My family has tried Two Brothers, Nancy's and Roberto's, and many others, but Mama Maria's still takes the blue ribbon. The Crust on the pizze is just the right texture- just the right crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The cheeze is melted to... More

We always take out. Very small seating area. Plan on take-out only. Pizza is great, and is ready when they tell you how long it will take, so be there at that time.

In my opinion, Mama Maria's has the best sauce of the Italian restaurants in Elmhurst. The lasagna, gnocchi, and ravioli are outstanding. I'm not a huge fan of the pizza, since the crust can be a bit chewy. My friend Nick said to ask for it 'well done' and it comes out much better. This is pretty much a take-out... More

The food was excellent. The best arrabbiata sauce EVER ! However, the downfall to the restaurant is the size of the seating area - ITsa Toooo Small. What a shame since the food was so good. A new breezeway would help to minimize the cold from entering the dinning room as well. Enough negativity about the layout ~ order the... More
