My family reserved the small private dining area at maria's to celebrate my daughters graduation. We had a group of 12 and this space was perfect for our celebration. The atmosphere at Maria's is simply amazing. It is beautifully decorated and looks as if you are stepping back in time. They have a very nice bar area also with a... More

I never expected this in a quaint lovely southern town that looks much like it must have during the Civil War. Atmosphere/ambiance was excellent; two-story ceiling, walls nicely painted to enhance the mood, spacious interior. The staff seemed a bit confused during seating and initial drink service, but then settled down. GREAT Bloody Mary. Food was promptly served and good.... More

I traveled to Petersburg on "The Cavalier" 611 Steam Train Excursion and had a few hours to spend in the Old Towne Area of Petersburg. We chose Maria's because it was located close where we got off the train. This is a wonderful restaurant that is decorated beautifully. From the time we entered until the time we left the staff...

Went on a week night with a group of people. The pizza was great and they have lots of interesting options. I believe margaritas were on special and we all ordered one and the bar didn't have enough glasses to make a second round without taking our first round of glasses. It seemed a little understaffed but then again it... More

We first went there a few weeks ago and returned just recently. It is an open atmosphere with a very decent selection for Italian food. The first time we went there was entertainment and I believe it was during the week. The second time we went was on a Saturday evening and though there was no entertainment the food made... More

Had lunch here today! Beautiful space - converted theatre. I had the buffet lunch $10.95) and a drink. Most of the food on the buffet was very good. Manicotti, sausage and peppers, meat balls with sauce, pepperoni pizza and assorted veggies. The fried pickles were pretty limp (not crispy) because they were in steam server. Three soups were offered (... More

I had my husbands surprise 50th birthday party here. The owner was very accommodating. We had a party of 22. Everyone was served at the same time and the food was excellent. We eat here often, but this was my first experience with a large party. I have to say that this was a 5 star experience.

Nice atmosphere and old world decor. Easily accommodated our large party of 50+. Food was overpriced for the portion sizes and ingredients.

Food is real good and the restaurant is spacious. The setting and atmosphere is great. Only issue is service is a bit slow but overall, it is a restaurant I would definitely will recommend and return to.
