After a day of visiting Roanoke College campus our family decided on this restaurant for dinner. We were greeted and shown to our booth. We placed our drink and food orders. The waitstaff was very polite and the food was very good. My only suggestion would be that the super hot plate that comes from the oven be placed on... More

Great gluten free selection! I have Celiac and feel perfectly safe is this Italian restaurant. The owners are from Italy, so of course you are getting old family recipes that are fantastic! They are cautious in preparing gluten free foods too. Great selection, including a variety of gelato for dessert! Right of I-81 too!

Stopped in Salem on our way to Florida. This restaurant was recommended to us at the hotel. Our service was great and the food was even better. Good homemade food and homemade gelato for dessert.

It has been a while since I've dined at Mama Maria's in Salem. Too long, in fact -- over a 2 years. Once I had returned, I realized how much I missed it. It appears to have been updated in decor and size since my last visit, and the menu also seems to have been expanded--if that's possible; it has... More

We had a bunch of family in for the weekend and decided to get take out from Mama Maria's. Great selection and was ready when we wanted it. Food was excellent and was still hot and delicious when we got home.

I ate here recently and found the service to be terrible. The place is overrated and overpriced. The "owner or manager" left me standing and waiting at the cash register for over five minutes to pay my check while he was chatting with a pair of customers who were seated in a booth waiting for their food. I will NEVER... More

Veal Francaise is one of our favorite meals and Mama Maria's was among the best. The entire meal was excellent, nice presentation, hot, excellent sauce, and service. Wish they were closer to home. Enjoy!
