I had my daughter's wedding shower at Marias and it was very good. The food was delicious and the atmosphere is beautiful. The only thing that I didnt care for is that I had over 60 people and although naturally Marias said that there would be plenty of room for everyone, there actually wasn't and it was quite crowded. Also, although the service was good, they rushed us out of there as well. I recommend this place, but for couples eating out and not for a big crowd for a party, not past 30 people... if over 30 people, there is no room.

Monday thru Thursday you can get a 4 course meal for under $25! That is amazing - you will not be disappointed - everything on the menu is mouth watering!

This is the best Italian Restaurant I have ever been. I have traveled the world and lived in various places. Italy being one of them. By far, this is the most authentic taste. I love going there to dine because the staff is so friendly and warm.

Arrivederci

Pros: Great every time!!!!

There is a reason Maria's has been the staple of Sheapshead bay for 80 years nows... The restaurant has it ALL. Great, authentic Italian food, the friendliest and best staff, a great atmosphere, and a owner who obviously knows exactly what hes doing, and how to do it RIGHT.
I highly recommend this restaurant to you all. Its a CLASSIC.

I live in Ft. Lauderdale Florida, but this summer I went to Italy and I had a stopover in New York.. I visited some friends who live in Brooklyn. They took us to Maria's, a restaurant they have been going to forever. I have to say, the Food was outstanding. I loved the baked clams, and the cold antipasta platter . My Salmon entre was excellent and my husband's chicken scarperella was delicious. After spending a week in Venice, Rome and Sienna, Italy, I can honestly say Maria's food was just as good! I don't have to travel 6,000 miles away for real AUTHENTIC Italian Cuisine!

maria's restaurant has been a landmark in brooklyn since 1932 so we decided to take our in-laws their for their 43rd anniversary. The food was exceptional and the friendly staff brought out a cake with a candle on it when they knew it was their anniversary and then the whole restaurant got involved in singing happy anniversary to them. We really had fun that night and i would highly recommend this restaurant

I went to Maria' s five days in advance to make a reservation 13 people, included our grandchildren to celebrate my wifes birthday. When we arrived they told us an hour wait? So what do you need a reservation for. Then after waiting and talking to the hostess and owener. the wait time changed finally since we had children with us we had to leave and search for another restaurant. A joyous occasion turned in the worst night of my life for my self and my wide.
What is the sense of making a reservation when the restaurant does not honor it. You expect to go out and have a joyous time celebrating a birthday and it turns into the night that should have not happened.
Maybe the food is good. but the ower has no respect for his customers / clients. And on this note I will never go back to Maria's.

First time I dinned at Maria's was in 98, found it a very charming place with good fresh pasta, good food and warm reception. But I notice that both food and service quality has been sliding down for the last few years. My most recent visit was last Saturday (6/7/08). Food was average and service was at immature level. The place does not serve fresh quality food anymore. Maria is becoming just another commercialized "DINNER" with higher prices and dim lights.

Went there this weekend with my husband, 6 year old, mother in law and brother in law and sister in law and we all loved it! Great atmosphere, excellent food and you couldn't ask for nicer people working there. It was our first time there but I felt like I was a regular. Will definitely be returning.

My husband and I have gone here numerous times in the past. The first few times were very enjoyable, great service and good food, if not a bit expensive for what it is. But it was close to where we live, and so very convenient. Then the quality became erradic after the first four times or so going. My salmon would come back overcooked every time, the clams would be too fishy, the food a bit too cold. We eventually gave up and took our money and stomachs elsewhere. The atmosphere is nice, but the food should match up. Went back again recently for a bridal shower, and did not enjoy the food very much. Would not recommend.

My wife and I found this restaurant by chance. It turned out to be the best Italian restaurant we ever ate at. Now we take all of our friends there and recommend all to try this place out. We even spent New Years there and had the best time of our life with great food included. Don't let this place pass you by, it really is that good.

If you are looking for good food and friendly service this is the place for you. A great Italian meal for a resonable price. By far my favorite restaurant.

my husband and i go to Maria's quite often. We travel from Howard Beach but we don't care. It is well worth it. We know Jeff, the owner, only from going there so much. He is such a great person along with Zach and Dino, the two waiters we always have. The food is excellent, the ambiance is romantic as well as simple and lovely. The wine is always top knotch and everyone is friendly. In the summer, the tables outside are a great touch. I would def. recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to be treated like gold, have great food, great wine and a lovely dinner. Dinner for two or dinner for 10. This place can do it all.

Not much word of mouth on Maria's, but what a lovely place! Will definately return. Multiple smaller dining rooms give a sense of intimacy. Food is good, specials have been outstanding.

Old standards made with an updated twist. Great service, reasonable wine list and tasty food. I hope they don't decide to tear it down and make a "russian or Turkish" restaurant.
