The ambiance, location and parking are all exceptional. The food was very good, the penne alla vodka nailed it. Two of us got the cod and, while served hot and delicious, we felt it was a little too salty (capers AND olives might have contributed). The side salad with the Secondi was large, a nice touch. The Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio offered by the glass were tasty (esp. Noir), and were a generous pour for a reasonable price. Will go back again. Thanks also to Joseph for excellent service.

From the welcome at the front door to the service and the "come back soon" as we left, we were very
happy with everything. There are certainly many enticing menu choices in all categories. We look forward to returning soon.

The service and ambience were top-notch. The food was excellent, although I wouldn't say it was outstanding. That's for dining experiences that make me wish the chef had been my mother. (That has never happened.) A wonderful experience, one of the best in Providence, if not the best.

Setting is beautiful. Pasta Amatricana was oversauced. Veal was breaded and deep fried, not what was expected in a high end Italian restaurant.

We began with the warm spinach salad which was okay. I did not realize that the spinach was actually cooked so neither of us were thrilled with that. The meatball app was very good as the four of us tried it.
Two of the group enjoyed the plentiful portion of Veal parmesan and penne entree. I liked the stuffed sole. Although I enjoyed the string beans side and they were tasty, I requested double vegetable and would have appreciated having a choice. I could have ordered another, but being unsure of the quality, I did not do that. Our fourth diner did not care for his extremely small and bland tasting salmon.

Maria Cucina has become our go to place when dining at Federal Hill. The food is delicious, there is a great selection of wines, and I love the atmosphere of dining in the Victorian house.

Maria Cucina is beautiful. I was taken away by the beauty from the outside to the inside. The wall murals that were restored are just beautiful and the lighting throughout if just gorgeous. Such a beautiful place to have a meal.

Great dining experience overall. The person seating us could use a little more experience (sat us at a table in the center of traffic area, with the rest of the restaurant empty, we had to ask to move). However, most importantly, the food was made from quality ingredients and prepared very well. Our server "Nick" was definitely an experienced server which is a big plus when dining out. The updated decor was also very nice. The big parking lot is also a plus. We will most definitely go back to Maria's.

Food was outstanding(zucchini flowers fried lightly not overstuffed with too much heavy batter the way everyone else ruins them, bucatini armatriciana was excellent)location is so unique because your in an old mansion with 22 foot ceilings and hand carved wood accents. The staff was friendly and my whole family gave it 2 thumbs up!

Maria's Cucina is a true gem in Rhode Island. First off to have it's own parking lot in Providence is a huge plus. The restoration of this building is amazing and it truly felt like we were going back in time while dining. Our server was excellent, professional, and personable and truly made our night special. We had appetizers, entrees and dessert. The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable. One of the owners Chris made a point of checking on every table throughout the night. Between the staff, beautiful atmosphere, caring owners and the delicious food Maria's Cucina is a wonderful restaurant and I cannot recommend it enough.

Fantastic dining experience. The food is true Italian - had this eggplant app it was amazing. The entrees were great as well as the portions. Best value for your dollar in that area for Italian food by far. The atmosphere is great very big dinning area - all different rooms so it isn’t loud at all. A definite repeat!

Wow - what a great find this restaurant is - huge veranda and awesome interior décor. True to its history and old world charm the food lives up to the interiors. Everyone should experience its authentic cuisine, happy wait staff and reasonable pricing. I tried the seafood and the side salads and deserts. All good. Great drinks - they have Aperol and Campari and an awesome bar. Thanks Providence …..at last a restaurant that does not disappoint.

This was our first visit to Maria’s Cucina. We have dined here before in the former restaurant. The new owners did a beautiful job uncovering original murals of this majestic former home as they prepared for the new restaurant.
The food was delicious and the service excellent. Look forward to returning!

Beautiful restaurant with delicious Italian classics. From the moment we walked in until we left we were truly impressed. Hostess was prompt and pleasant had us seated very quickly. The service was absolutely top notch! Made us feel like family. We had the calamari to start it came out quickly and cooked perfectly with awesome flavor! I had the veal funghi it was OUT OF THIS WORLD! The veal was so tender I could have cut it with a spoon! My husband had the chicken parm he said it was one of the best he ever had, pasta was a perfect al dente! We then had the home made chocolate cake also fantastic! You can tell there’s a lot of love and passion in this food!!! We couldn’t of been happier with our experience at Maria’s Cucina will definitely be back soon to enjoy a summer night on the patio!

Food and service was outstanding. The ambience and decor was well worth the wait for them to open. The Veal Milanese was outstanding.. Can't wait to bring more friends here to enjoy Maria's Cucina as much as I did.
