There were six of us who dined. You will need to make a reservation. We had tickets to a show at the St. George Theater next door. If you haven't been there - it's a must. The place is extremely small. There is barely any room between the tables. It's hard not to bump into the person sitting next to you. Even the servers can't pass if the waitress is in the aisle. With that said, the food was WONDERFUL. Where else can you get daily on the menu, rabbit, duck, tripe, sweet breads & lamb hearts? We ordered mostly from the specials of that evening's Nona. A friend and I started with Fennel Salad, followed by the slow roasted duck in a white wine and citrus marmalade sauce. Pasta was Rigatoni with sausage, a little on the hot side, which is the plate I am still thinking about! Ended with the Fundata di Ciocollata and cappuccino. The others at my table were envious of the dessert I shared with my friend - it was definitely enough for (2) and a great way to end a terrific meal.

Got a real kick out of the "Nonna" she visited our table a couple times to see how we were enjoying our meal . The food and dessert was outstanding , wish they had liquor as we really aren't wine drinkers . We had the charcuterie & cheese platter to go with our wine to start , then some excellent baked clams . I had braciole stuffed with broccoli rabe and my fiancé had stuffed chicken which was also delicious . Overall we really enjoyed it and will return !

Just got back from Enoteca Maria. Five of us enjoyed a meal made in heaven. The Nonna of the night was Christina from Milan. The waitress explained which dishes were made by the Nonna(not everything on the menu is). Our appetizers were meatballs,mussels & clams in red sauce,baked clams,and eggplant boats stuffed with rice, mozzarella, ground beef, peas and ricotta cheese then baked in red sauce.First plate: was sweet and spicy sausage slow cooked in red sauce and mixed with rigatoni pasta or farfalle pasta in a gorgonzola cream sauce, mixed with roasted walnuts and parmigiano. Entrees ordered:Pan roasted veal cutlets topped with prosciutto and fontina cheese and served over a bed of arugula or slices of pan seared pork sausage topped with cannellini beans served over polenta with roasted peppers. Desserts ordered:Tiramisu: Ladyfingers soaked in brandy and orange citrus then layered with a mascarpone and strawberry cream and topped with strawberries,Semifreddo: Choice of almond or nutella flavored semi-frozen dessert(we had one of each),and Fundata di Cioccolata Strawberries, blueberries, brownie, biscotti served w/ a fondue of melted chocolate. We had cappuccinos and espresso.
Reservations are advised..This is a great place for couples,friends,and families with well behaved children. The interior is small,so you might get friendly with those at the next table..

this place gets packed at night; its a small restaurant.
we, my mother, daughter and i went before the dinner crowd arrived around 630.
the food was very good; ended up trying a new dish that i normally wouldnt see on some menu's.
i would definitely go back with friends.
