We had a group of 7 and walked in to a restaurant with many open tables which initially concerned me. The waitress put us at a back table and told us she would get someone to help us. It was apparent that they were suffering...from a lack of help like many of the restaurants in the area. Then Nico appeared and he was terrific. Friendly, fast, very personable and he took care of our kids first which kept them busy. Nico was actually the bartender and was asked to handle our table. I'm from NY and I've been to some of the best Italian restaurants in Little Italy. I'm not here to say that Mama Maria's was on that level but I had the lasagna and it was very good. The pizza was also very good and the prices very fair. Gotta give it to Nico though, he stepped up, delivered and even walked out to thank us when we were leaving. that kid deserves a raiseMore

Way overpriced. Spaghetti with meatballs was lousy. Pizza ok but way too much money. Shrimp Alfredo was ok. Dropped $ 70 for the obove. Ridiculous

Had the lasagna, vegetarian pizza, caesar salad, and a slice of barbeque chicken pizza. The lasagna was a very large portion with melted cheese, 3 or 4 layers of noodles, and meat sauce. Also, it included 3 nicely baked white rolls that were very tasty....Flavor of the lasagna was a bit bland for me. The pizza included a variety of veggies that were finely chopped which was a bit different for us. The flavors all blended together where I would prefer being able to savor each veggies' flavor. Sauce was a bit bland as well. The salad was fine. The barbeque chicken pizza was on a thick crust and was available by the slice. It was the best selection we made. Crust was crisp, sauce was tasty, and the chicken was tender.More

We were staying close by, as we do every year for our annual trip. We went to the bar and ordered 2 White Claws. The male bartender said, $14. Handed him a $20, he went to the register and never came back. They were not...busy but had a few people there. Maybe we do things differently where I'm from, but assuming "keep the change" is theft. We left and will never return. I felt robbed all the way around. $7 per White Claw is robbery. Taking the liberty of a 43% tip is treating yourself very generous. Nope, won't get me again!!!More

We had delicious food - chicken parmigiana and Fruit Di Mare, with the carrot cake for dessert.....pleasantly and graciously served by Neli. Portions are enough for two meals. Will definitely go back.

I ordered Eggplant Parm and it was awful. It tasted old and disgusting, I threw it out. Sauce was awful too.

Go here, sit at their outside bar out back, and order up some rings, and a Hurricane. Our first night in town and this checked all the boxes.
