food was average nothing special or outstanding
beautiful atmosphere- i think they need to revise menu especially with all the competition in area
Wonderful! We had a mini cousin reunion and enjoyed it all the more because of this historic, fun, and flavorful place.
Food was awesome and reasonably priced. The decor is beautiful.
Once again the service and food were excellent! We enjoy our dinners every time we go here!
It's always a beautiful experience whether we go alone or with friends!
Food was great. Service was just as good and the Italo American Club is beautiful
First time here. Dinner for two. Great atmosphere, excellent service, beautiful setting, quite classic but very tasty food prepared to perfection with a fantastic combination of flavors, great value. Five stars, no doubt.
Comfortable and beautiful decor. The food and service were outstanding . We will return often .
Italian food at its best!! Beautiful, Delicious & Friendly
My new favorite restaurant! Maria Cucina has a fabulous menu, wine list, and desserts....home made and fabulous!
Great space, food was great service with Francesca was great! Can’t wait to see it decorated at Christmas! Willbe back
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.
The appetizers were great...great for sharing...service was superb very attentive...food came out hot with plenty of taste...blueberry pie is to die for...will be going back
We had a wonderful dining experience at this new venue/restaurant. The wine list was extensive. There were many appetizer options and the specials. The service was exceptional and the food and ambiance was amazing. We would definitely return!
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.
Excellent food and service was impeccable
both food and service were excellent
have recommended it several times this week
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.
Everything was very good...the service...the food...the atmosphere. Our waiter couldn’t have been any nicer!! We are already planning our next visit.
The atmosphere is so relaxing. The chef is very accommodating with dietary restrictions. I love bringing friends because I know they’ll always leave happy.
Always enjoyed Spirito’s, but this is even better! I hope you offer two-for-
one specials in the future!
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this beautiful place and will certainly return!
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.
Absolutely beautiful restaurant! The service was wonderful. Our server was knowledgeable and personable- added very much to the evening. The food was fresh,delicious and made with care. Prices are very reasonable, especially considering the experience overall. Highly recommended!!
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!
Chris was an amazing host. The staff was excellent and the food was delicious. The historic house is beautiful!
We really loved everything about Maria.s Cucina. The restaurant is very lovely inside and the service & food was great and the waiter was excellent. We would give it 5 stars. It was very relaxing and we were not rushed.
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.
Joseph met us with a smile and a birthday wish. Very attentive and informative. The food was beautifully plated and very good. A nice evening, we never felt rushed. Everything was great including the candle on the tiramisu. Will be back.
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!
What an absolute disappointment. We ordered Appetizers, Salads and Dinner of which ALL came out at the same time. My meal was cold! My partners Steak was so under cooked and one of our guests meal was not even what she ordered. All I can say is NEVER AGAIN!!! HORRIBLE!!!!
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.
