Born and raised in Brooklyn and been to my far share of Italian Restaurants. Besides the food being of Olive Garden quality, they charge more and I've never seen an Italian in there.. One would think you might find Italians working and cooking in a restaurant but not this one.

I have been coming here for years. The food is excellent. We have also had many parties here as well. The service is first class and Jeff always goes out of his way and takes special care of everything. Highly recommend whether it's for a night out or a family gathering!!

On this visit we went for a birthday dinner for our daughter. It was slow because it was on a Sunday, we enjoyed the quiet restaurant. The service and food were very good. Another great visit!

very good Italian fare, typical choices and fair prices. Waiters are very attentive and checked to make sure we had everything we wanted. Owner/manager also checked to see if all was to our satisfaction

The dcor was old style, but the food & service was very good. Mozzerlla Carozzo was not crispy, but my main dish Scallops Fra"Diavolo was great.Live entertainment (Elvis Impersonator) was a lot of fun.

Took some business associates for dinner. Great family-owned restaurant. We ordered mostly classic dishes and some very good wine. Rave reviews from all three of us from California, Illinois and NY. Excellent Find!

Debating on where to go for dinner, we found ourselves at Maria's. We didn't have a reservation and only had a 15 minute wait. Once we were seated we were pleasantly surprised that the live music was very good. Our food and the service was great as expected. We will definitely return another Friday night.

Staying in nearby hotel, we walked here one evening while in town on a work project. Nice atmosphere, very pleasant, welcoming and attentive staff. Food was lackluster at best. My husband had spaghetti with a meat sauce that was pleasant enough, but my linguine with white clam sauce was just not good. Nice-sized clams were inedible, they were so rubbery;... More
