We went to dinner at Maria's on President's Day weekend. We were 4 adults, 3 children, hungry and happy. It was about 6 pm on a Sunday night (President's Day weekend), and the restaurant was virtually empty. The dinner was terrible: long wait for simply inexcusable food.
The service was pleasant enough, but excruciatingly slow and not so well-informed. For example, when we asked whether the pasta was fresh, the waitress said Yes. When we asked further about it (trying to avoid any incidents with our egg-allergic guest), she said that it was dried pasta from a box, and that they boiled it fresh. The salads that were to come with our meals never appeared, which is probably for the best: the food was God-awful. The pizza was a low-quality FROZEN PIZZA. As hungry as we were, we couldn't stomach it. The pasta was equally inedible (stuffed shells and spaghetti). The place had been recommended to us as a good place to go with children; we're bewildered about that, given how long it took and the low quality food. The waitress did bring crayons and coloring books, which was a step in the right direction. The decor is over-the-top (Pope plates on display, rosaries for sale at the front register), but that has its own charms. Not so for the food and service. Avoid it!
