Mama Maria offers a variety of excellent pizza, Italian entrees, sandwiches and salads. We enjoy a crust that is a bit chewy, as theirs is. Unfortunately, their salad dressings are prepackaged. Their wines are awful. It's so disappointing for such a good restaurant to offer such bad wine. Great, hard-working staff. Always busy dining in as well as carry-out. Will... More

The food here is sooo good we keep coming back over and over. We love all the pasta dishes , my favorite is clam linguine, my husband loves the veal scaloppine, and the spaghetti with meatballs. The service is friendly and the prices are very reasonable '

My husband picked the place to eat, and I wasn't feeling like Italian, so when he chose Mama Maria's I wasn't sure what I was going to eat. To my surprised the cheese steak is delicious! He had the chicken parm dinner which was enormous and delicious.

We are Connecticut pizza snobs. Pepi's, Sally's and Modern in New Haven are the absolute best. We moved to Florida 12 years ago and had a pizza meltdown. Finally found Mama Maria's in Venice, FL a few years ago and it is terrific!! Great crust sauce and cheese. Sweet people own/run place. Some actually from Fondi Italy. Can't say enough... More

I have eaten here twice with friends. It is a good lunch stop after the movies. So far we have had the antipasto, several subs and a Stromboli. Good service and good food. Prices are reasonable and they also serve beer and wine. Haven't tried the pizza yet but it looked good.

I have to say upfront that we have never eaten in the restaurant, but have ordered pizza for take out or delivery 3 times. The pizza is very good and there delivery service is quite prompt, arriving hot each time. This pizza is very much "Napoletana" style -- a thin crust with bubbled up edges -- not crispy, but quite...
