Excellent service and overall experience. Pizza has done a 360° since visiting chef from Italy. Honestly our pizza was the best we’ve tasted in NORTH CAROLINA over the last 20 years. Cold tuna appetizer was like dining in Northern Italy lakes region. Pasta dishes both tasty. Congrats - it’s now about maintaining such quality en masse.
Great food, great service, good time!
March 1, 2020. Our server was not very attentive and a bit standoff-ish.
Never was at this restaurant before friends recommended and we met them there. Good food and great service, we were given a small complimentary appetizer on the house.
The food is excellent at Maria's Pizzeria. We have had the pizza, lasagna, salads, spaghetti. The staff is friendly and attentive.
Maria’s is a welcome addition to the dining experience at Ocean Isle Beach. The restaurant is an upscale pizzeria with an extensive beer, wine and drink menu. We got two of the dinner specials: a bone-in Veal Parmesan and Chicken Parmigiana. Delicious food with enormous portions. Reasonable prices. Great service.
Looking forward to coming back for their specialty: pizza!!
Maria’s is FABULOUS each time we dine. James and Ashley and Staff are a well oiled machine! Harmony, Allison and Dana do an EXCELLENT job! This is our Go To place to eat! We love it!
Harmony did an OUTSTANDING job!
It’s WONDERFUL having such exquisite food in a great atmosphere and run by the FABULOUS James & Ashley! They hire the BEST staff, use the freshest ingredients that make your food full of flavor and texture! Enjoy Maria’s, you will be glad you did!
Was concerned it might be just a pizza place, but delighted to find it was a full Italian rest. Great food, service was a bit slow, but it was New Year’s Eve and the place was packed.
Will definitely return.
Very nice environment. Great bar area. Good service and good food. 4 for dinner and all of us were very satisfied. Pasta, eggplant rollatini and pizza were entries. Also good specialty martini.
We are snowbirds who have frequented Angelos, same owner, in Shallotte in the past. Our favorite server, Allison who shares my love of fine wine is the manager and sommelier and the reason we prefer this restaurant. Don’t be misled as the choice of entrees are outstanding. What is really good for those watching calories is that lunch portions are half the size of the same entrees at dinner. Servers are well trained and very friendly. Mike & Lonnie Guilford, CT.
Busy Saturday night, full bar where our table was. Server Jess was pleasant and efficient with a good sense humor which we enjoyed.
The kitchen prepared a dish not on the menu which was appreciated.
Everything was excellent except the live band was way too loud
for such a small area.
Calamari was ordered as appetizer. We got it just as we were leaving. Pizza for 2 people came out 30 minutes before the rest of the food. Reservation was at 6:45. Seated immediately but didn’t leave until 8:30. Food service was extremely slow.
The eggplant Parm special was very good because it was a nice sized portion and not a greasy fried eggplant. The calzone I was also very good with lots of vegetables.
Our server was very attentive although it was a busy Saturday night. Everyone very friendly and we are so happy Maria’s is very close to our house now
We requested cannolis when we made our reservation since we were celebrating a birthday and they were delivered as we’d asked!
