My wife and I are unabashed foodies from NYC and would still recommend one of the two Mary's locations on your next trip to Sonoma, if you're up for the challenge The lack of pretense is refreshing. Mary's "is what it is" and not trying to be anything else. To be clear, it's not one of the many outstanding farm-to-table restaurants that dot the Sonoma landscape. It's big (probably too big) portions of stick-to-the-ribs macaroni (I doubt even Mary would refer to the cuisine as "pasta"). Mary's also has starters which include salads (that are a combination of iceberg lettuce and antipasto) and the basic wine and drinks list (the key word here is "basic"). And oh yeah, Mary's also offers a few old school desserts which are yummy but will not only stick to your ribs but other parts of your anatomy as well-- and should be consumed by one person if you only consider diabetes and coronary disease minor inconveniences.

Mary's is a "neighborhood place." You'll be eating alongside families from the community and it's likely that a 4-year boy, or two, will proactively show interest in joining your table. I might not recommend Mary's for a short 2-day romantic weekend to Sonoma—too many finer dining options for such a brief trip. But if you're tacking on a few days to that weekend, and need a break--and your budget needs a break--from all of the wonderful finer dining options that the greater square has to offer, and you go into Mary's with an intrepid "it is what it is" attitude, you'll enjoy your dinner. And for God's sake, tell that 4-year old to get his finger out of his nose.

A great place to stop and eat after a long day of travelling! The veggie pizza with peperoni is a great deal! Yummy beer choices too!

I love pizza, east coast, artisan etc. and this place is horrible with mediocre service. I have tried reheating etc. but soggy crust, tasteless sauce, too much cheap cheese and maybe their other items are good but it does say Mary's pizza?

Great salads, pasta and of course the best pizza in Sonoma.
There are many locations now but two in Sonoma, one in Boyce Hot Springs, and one around the Plaza, full bar, fast service and quality ingredients make this a favorite for a casual lunch or dinner. I particularly like the Mary's salad, Mary's combo pizza and the meat ball sandwich.

Mary's is a basic in most people's lives! And this location in Sonoma is nothing different! You can sit outside and watch the square and life go by! The Mary's salad continues to Rock it! And they have a great lunch special-Mary's salad and a large side if pizza got about $6-7, it's great!
