    The waitress was phenomenal, very attentive knew the menu inside and out. She knew the menu, and all the specials of the day never had to write anything down, took out orders and brought everything in a timely manner. She made the whole experience absolutely wonderful.

    It was like coming to Mom's house and her letting me use the dinning room for a semi formal dinning night with Friends. Absolutely relaxing and loving atmosphere. Waitress was perfect and hostess was as usual Professional, kind and friendly . All Around Great Place to go to when your missing home, food and family.

    Packed on a Friday night but it didn't affect service at all. The carpaccio keeps us coming back for more. The lamb was divine and the pasta is always perfection. The staff treats everyone like royalty.

    We came here for a birthday dinner and indicated so on the reservation. Food was delicious, good portions and arrived quickly! The waiter was nice but an odd thing happened - we were going to have cake at home so we didn't order dessert. He must've saw on the reservation it was a birthday dinner so he brought out a tiramisu with a lighted candle. It was a sweet gesture! However, we were charged for it on the bill...it's not expensive so we didn't mention it. Usually, restaurants would not charge for something if they chose to serve it. We were just surprised to see it on the bill since we didn't order it.

    Mussel appetizer was to die for, and homemade pasta is worth the trip. The veal shank was huge but just a lettle on the dry side. Overall the food was really good and worth the trip. The reason for the medium overall rating was not knowing the kitchen would be closing at 6pm on Christmas Eve when we made a 5:45 reservation. We were rushed to order and then not able to get desert even for takeout because the kitchen staff had left. All of that said, we will be going back on a "regular day" because they tried hard despite the rush and food came out really good overall.

    Had reservations for 4:30 so it was quiet. The service and the food was excellent and they are very accommodating if you want to change it up I.e. I swapped out pasta for risotto. I can’t wait to go back

    Food was excellent, service excellent as well. Recommend either larger tables for two people or smaller dinnerware as the table was quite crowded. Overall, we had a wonderful dinner and will definitely return as there were so many items we wanted to try. Wishing Maria’s continued growth and success! 😊

    Our party of four enjoyed lamb shank, scallops and shrimp, lasagna and I had chicken and vegetable soup and also meat and cheese ravioli in a sauce with walnuts. Wrong choice for me because of my lactose intolerance but I ate it all anyway. The waiter was just about perfect, very knowledgeable and attenitve. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I also noticed someone getting rack of lamb at a table next to ours that looked wonderful. On my llist.

    This is our 2nd visit and both times we have had issues. The Scallop special came on a white plate with about 4 rather small scallops and a spoonful of spaghetti squash which was tasteless. The plate looked like they forgot to put something on it. The fact that they charge for refills on soft drinks is the most un-customer service practice ever. I know for a fact that many people have complained about this but yet they will not change their policy. I did enjoy the swordfish and thought it was good value for the money but I just don't think Maria's cares about its coustomers and will not return.

    Fantastic! We booked last minute for Thanksgiving because our plans fell through. There were seven of us (including some kiddos) and we ended up with our own private room with absolutely delicious food. Our server was phenomenal! She went above and beyond! I wish I could remember her name because I would give her a shout-out. I would highly recommend Maria's Trattoria for a special occasion or an everyday meal. I'm so glad we booked here!

    They have done a great job renovating the restaurant. The service was great, the portions are large, so just plan to take home some leftovers! Our group tried the lamb, fish, salads, pasta, pizza..all were fabulous. We also shared 3 desserts and very happy with them....the creme brulee, amazing. We will definitely be back!!

    One of the menu items was unavailable. Two Salmon dinners came out undercooked & were listed as Champagne Salmon with lemon spaghetti. The dish was presented as Salmon with spaghetti in a cream sauce that had no lemon in it at all. They charge $2.50 per refill for soft drinks which is so unheard of in any restaurant. Service was very slow & at one point the music was turned up so loud you could not hear another person talk. Very very disappointed.

    This was our third time eating at Maria's Trattoria. We dined there the first night it opened, again a couple of months later, then again this weekend. My companion had the Gnocchi, which is what she had during our first visit. She found it good but a bit too salty the first time, same this time. I had Pollo all Francese at each of my three visits. It was better the first and second visit, a bit salty and served in a bowl with more of a liquid than a sauce. Seating is quite crowded. A small lamp is on each table which is nice, as the restaurant is somewhat dark. The restaurant is very noisy. Maria's Trattoria is probably number 4 on my list of Italian restaurants that I would visit in my area.
