As close as you'll get locally to your Italian Grandmother's kitchen – Just had lunch there today with my wife and two kids. This is an authentic, old school Italian deli similar to what you'd find in Little Italy, NYC, complete with handmade signs everywhere offering a plethora of daily specials. While the ambiance of the main dining area definitely leaves something to be desired, the food's the thing and on this count they definitely deliver the goods. Coming from a full-blooded Italian family complete with the Grandmother whose cooking was legendary, I can personally attest that this food is as close as you're going to find locally. I ordered a daily special that included a thick slice of pan pizza that tasted as delicious as it looked (a tangy and slightly sweet homemade tomato sauce, just the right amount of cheese, and a light texture to the dough that kept it from being too heavy), a green salad that was huge, robust and tasty, unlike your typical chain restaurant's idea of a side salad -- puny, wilted and pre-packaged -- and finally a 20 oz. soft drink, all for $6.50. My daughter got a Ravoli special that again was huge, homemade and delicious, with meatballs that were almost as good as my Grandmother's. My wife and son got turkey subs that were so big, they had plenty of leftovers to take home. While my favorite dinner place for Italian in Santa Clarita is definitely Sisley Kitchen in the Valencia Town Center mall (a little pricey, but consistently excellent food), Maria's is definitely one of my family's new favorite lunch places on the weekends. Strongly recommended.
Best Pizza in the world! – I have had pizza all over the world, even in Milan Italy. These guys are the best. I go there almost everyday for lunch every single item on their menu is just amazing. Fast friendly service and rock bottom prices.
Very good Italian deli – I've been here a number of times and the food is very good. Pizza here is excellent as are the sandwiches.
A Hidden Treasures – Best italian food ever!! Real nice and casual. Lovely for Sunday lunch.
