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!

I ate here on a Sunday night because I was staying at a local hotel and didn't want to drive. I am very glad that I did. I had a basic pasta dinner which was excellent, but they have a lot of house specialitys which looked great, I just wasn't that hungry. One highlight is that they have Gelato, made... More

Probably the best pizza in the Roanoke Valley. Clean and friendly restaurant. I have had other Italian dishes here and they have always been great.

This is one restaurant that you won't find microwaving your food! My wife said this was the best lasagna she has had in a very long time. I had the baked ziti with a side meatball. Delicious!! Portions are more than adequate. We ended up taking half our meals to go for the next nights supper. The server even gave... More

We went to this restaurant as it was close to our motel. We had just completed 12 hour drive on our way to Florida. We were seated t a nice table. The decor was dated, but the staff was attentive and seemed to be hardworking. We ordered an antipasto to share. Our server was a very polite young man. He... More

I had the seafood, Della Mamma, that was very good. My wife had Veal Piccata. Her's was good, but could have been more veal and less mushrooms. Town atmosphere and very friendly staff. Might go again on the way back! Very good to excellent! Thank you for having us!
