This little place was one of the best Italian Restaurants I've ever been to!. Thats really saying a lot too. My wife and split a pizza along with a pasta dish so we could take some back to the hotel. It was great food, great service and in a great relaxed atmosphere.

We came here hungry for Italian food. The wait for the food was the first indication that something was not right. Our salads came and the dressing was not very appetizing. Next came our main items, Lasagna & Fettuccine. The taste of the sauce on the Lasagna was like out of a can and the Fettuccine was not too far... More

I had mussels marinara on linguini. My wife had Grouper. We had roasted tomato soup with smoked gouda. All were served hot and prepared to our satisfaction. The meals were served with home baked parmesan bread sticks that were hot out of the oven. The next time we go I will try their pizza it appeared to be a favorite... More

My husband and I visited Maria's for lunch on a beautiful Fall day. The meatballs are fantastic in a yummy marinara sauce that included a warm loaf of bread topped with Parmesan cheese. The service is excellent and the portions huge. All the other dishes going buy to other tables looked awesome. This is a quaint Italian restaurant that serves... More

My husband and I stopped at Maria’s for lunch. The service was nice, and the atmosphere quaint. They have an interesting selection of root beers, and we each enjoyed trying one. Ordering the margherita pizza with chicken breast, we were pleased with the perfectly baked crust on the pizza, as well as the ample supply of fresh mozzarella. The entire... More

Went to Maria's for dinner last Friday night and it was amazing! If you are staying close by, go put your name in if there is a wait, and they will call you when your table is ready. All of the dishes we had were delicious. Our teens loved the root beer and the breadsticks plus the large portion sizes.... More

Very good and good priced, not very big inside so may want to get here before the dinner crowd shows up.

Located in the historic downtown, Maria's offers a nice selection of Italian "comfort" food, like lasagna and other typical dishes. The restaurant is casual with friendly service. Our waitress actually helped us plan our drive up to Traverse City. It's not a large restaurant, so you may have to wait during the season.

Thank SagamoreMan
