Great combination, OpenTable
Great combination, OpenTable and Maria's! Making the reservations was easy. We arrived a couple minutes early and were immediately seated. The waitstaff was very attentive and the meal was very good. I don't think it could have been easier to have had a nice night out with friends.

We love Maria's
We go Maria's for many reasons: celebrating birthdays, special occasions, professional accomplishments, holiidays. We give Maria's gift cards to our children for their special occasions. Every time we go we are treated very well and have an excellent meal, with a very comfortable atmosphere. All the staff are excellent and make each visit special.

Another great meal
We have eaten here about three times now, and it's been memorable--a special occasion plus dinners with friends. Service was prompt, attentive but not intrusive. The bronzini special was spectacular, the Salad Maria is I think the best they offe; it's not on the menu so it takes careful listening to know how toorder it (having seen the tempting platters of mozzarella and tomato, roasted peppers, and artichoke hearts ready downstairs, but not seeing them as key ingredients in salads on the menu). The server said "as always, we have our Salad Maria" then described it. I'll probably have it every time I go back! The ravioli that is standardly on the menu is great - lots of veggies and spinach. We recommend it highly.

Had a wonderful dinner late
Had a wonderful dinner late in the evening during the summer. The waiter was friendly yet gave us time to enjoy each other. Food was great and we had a nice view of the harbor and docks.

Very nice experience
A bit pricey, but the food was fantastic - the pasta was excellent. We almost made a meal of the Sicilian dipping sauce with warm bread. Our waitress was attentive and personable.

It was reviews of Maria's that led us to make this reservation; it was a very good choice. The location is excellent, in the heart of the Annapolis Town Dock Area. All of the staff members we encountered were friendly and professional, service was just right. There were so many menu choices that deciding what to order was difficult. Our meals were beautifully presented and quite tasty. Any menu choice would have been a good decision. There are plenty of great restaurants in Annapolis. I am glad we chose Maria's!

Wonderful ambiance for friendly or private conversation. Annapolis market house and surrounding downtown views make for relaxing stroll before or after dinning. The staff was attentive and the seating was nicely layed out with room to walk. The wine list was great for a novice or a more experienced palate and a variety of brews also available. Warm fresh bread and dipping oil was awesome. I generaly ask for butter but this oil was very tasty. Our table of 4 had a variety of fish, steak and eggplant. We shared tastings and each dish had a different and unique blend of texture and flavors. Maria herself came over to each table to hear about our dinning experience and if there was anything she could do to make it better. We are very satisfied!

Maria's is a scratch kitchen
Maria's is a scratch kitchen so all food freshly made to order. Their red sauce is excellent and second only to my grandmother's. The restaurant is cozy, warm and inviting, and located in a great location in Annapolis near the City Wharf. They have a very good and extensive wine list. They were very accomodating regarding our seating request, and lowered music for us as it was a bit too loud. Our waiter Sean was attentive, efficient, and helpful in guiding us in our menu selections. No children's menu. Prices a bit steep ($10 for a thin slice of cake). I recommend Maria's and will be dining there again.

Great Italian Food
Great menu with delicious Sicilian food. Menu is varied and food is fresh. Great location in downtown Annapolis. Maria occasionally roams the restaurant to talk to the dinners.

What a perfect dining experience
Maria's restaurant has such a warm, cozy feeling - perfect place to take my granddaughter for her birthday before going to see the play Annie. I notified the restaurant about her birthday before arrival. Upon our arrival, my granddaughter comments to the waiter, It's my birthday, the waiter immediately responded "we've been waiting for you - I heard it was your birthday". The level of personal attention was very much appreciated. I also liked the ability of the chef to "make whatever my granddaughter wanted to eat". The food was terrific and the cake with the birthday candle was a perfect way to end our most enjoyable evening at Maria's. I highly recommend this restaurant to couples with or without grandchildren.
