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

We have been eating at Mamma Maria's for many, many years. LOVE the pizza, best pizza in Venice. Food is always excellent and so is the service. This definitely is our favorite Italian pizzeria.

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.

Cute little place in the Frank's theater plaza so great place to stop after a movie! Great Italian fare. Only complaint is that the do not cook the veggies on the pizza...quite raw!

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...

Yes, I returned to Mama Maria's. When I have a craving for pizza this is the place to go. It is consistently good. Love the pizza dough and amount of cheese. They do not skimp on the toppings and there is always leftovers to take home and savor later. Can't resist. Service is also good and friendly.

Thank Alice B
