I was there near opening so it was empty except for the raucous bar patrons--the dining room connects with both bar and takeout room. I had the Zuppa, perhaps the most expensive item on the menu. It came with a very nice salad with Italian dressing--healthy and tasty. The main course included clams, mussels, shrimp, and scallops with a hearty... More

I love a good slice of pizza after a night of drinking. This yummy pizza is quick. It is best to get a slice and go outside to eat. There is meter parking around the building.

Husband and I decided to stop here because we were hungry and it was open. Turned out to be a very nice Italian restaurant. You can order a full meal (wide variety of pasta dishes) or a simple pizza (our choice-very good). Hostess could have been Mama Maria, herself. Very friendly staff, spacious dining room (could accommodate a large group)... More

Dinner and service were excellent. It was a short walk from The Hyatt Place. Can't wait to go back again in 2017.

Mama Maria within walking distance of motels in Dewey. Eat in the dining room, or the bar area on the deck, but enclosed. Good for meals or sandwiches, salads and finger foods.

The restaurant is right next to its take out sister. Endless menu and quick service, so as expected the meals weren't very good, but the service was great.

Stopped here to grab 2 pies for lunch & later. The regular cheese (with 1/2 sweet pepper) pizza was delicious as was the GF pizza. Great Dewey place for Pizza!

I was reading some reviews of this place and sounder pretty good. The Salads and bread was great but the actual meal was just average. We had Chicken Parn. and Penne w/meat sauce. Being an Italian restaurant we figured it would be authentic and home cooked. NOT even close. Sorry to say but Mama Maria's did not meet our expectations.

We went to the pizza counter late at night, so of course they probably assumed we were stupid drunk people.... While the pizza was very good, they charged us $19 for 4 slices of pizza which did not fit what the menu board said. Didn't feel like arguing so we just ate the cost.
