Dewey Beach has its own personality. It doesn't compete with the more gentrified Rehoboth Beach nearby, and tends to just retain its somewhat retro vibe. Mama Maria is similar in that it retains its look, menu and approach to service from a long ago era....More

Been there several times because of convenient location. Not going any more though. Had a bad experience there last time. Hardly ever any other customers. Food is simply "just OK" and there are so many other places in Dewey that are great experiences.

Maybe the pizza is better, but the pasta, meatballs, and veal dishes were average at best. The sauces tasted like they were made from canned ingredients. Nothing like authentic Italian food. Very disappointing considering the high reviews.

Little pizzeria downtown Dewey. Good service, friendly. Pizza was OK at best. Pretty empty when we went. Wouldn't go again.

My daughter and I come to Dewey every summer. As part of our tradition, we visit Mama Maria's frequently while we are down here. We love the pizza-its the best! Thanks for making a quality product!!
