The pizza was great, the cheesy bacon fries were delicious, and the service was good. My 3 year old liked the waitress. He kept saying come here pretty lady.

We like fresh food and this pizza seemed old, too salty, floppy and toppings were cooked to the point we couldn't really tell they were there.

Had a large meat and veggie pizza from Mamas for the superbowl. It was cooked to perfection and very good. It was a little pricey by my standards, around $22 when all said it done. I ate half the pizza easily so therefore I guess it isn't that large. Will be going back if i can afford it.

We are happy that you enjoyed our pizza. Our large meat and veggie is $18.95 and is 16". We feel our price is fair for all the topping that are on this pizza. More

If you're new to Venice Florida, you have probably heard that good pizza is hard to come by. Mama Maria's is an exception to that warning. The pizza is East Coast Style (New York, New Jersey...etc. etc.) and very well made. The crust is exceptional. Good sized pizza for the price. Also, the Baked Ziti with Meatballs is very good....but... More

Mama Maria offers a variety of excellent pizza, Italian entrees, sandwiches and salads. We enjoy a crust that is a bit chewy, as theirs is. Unfortunately, their salad dressings are prepackaged. Their wines are awful. It's so disappointing for such a good restaurant to offer such bad wine. Great, hard-working staff. Always busy dining in as well as carry-out. Will... More

The food here is sooo good we keep coming back over and over. We love all the pasta dishes , my favorite is clam linguine, my husband loves the veal scaloppine, and the spaghetti with meatballs. The service is friendly and the prices are very reasonable '

My husband picked the place to eat, and I wasn't feeling like Italian, so when he chose Mama Maria's I wasn't sure what I was going to eat. To my surprised the cheese steak is delicious! He had the chicken parm dinner which was enormous and delicious.

We are Connecticut pizza snobs. Pepi's, Sally's and Modern in New Haven are the absolute best. We moved to Florida 12 years ago and had a pizza meltdown. Finally found Mama Maria's in Venice, FL a few years ago and it is terrific!! Great crust sauce and cheese. Sweet people own/run place. Some actually from Fondi Italy. Can't say enough... More

I have eaten here twice with friends. It is a good lunch stop after the movies. So far we have had the antipasto, several subs and a Stromboli. Good service and good food. Prices are reasonable and they also serve beer and wine. Haven't tried the pizza yet but it looked good.
