Come experience recipes that have been in the Distefano family for more than 70 years and learn for yourself why Maria's gets reviews from dining travelers from all over the country, like:

"I live in Montana but visit South Haven frequently to see my family. Our first stop is ALWAYS Marias for the best Lasagna State Side... The staff is always friendly and helpful and the owners know us by name. AJ and Donna always take the time to ask me how the skiing is... and Rita always makes sure my coffee is full." and

"I have just finished my lunch at Maria's, a new Italian restaurant in South Haven. The food was superb and the service outstanding. It appears to be modeled after the old big city Italian neighborhood restaurants. I would recommend this to anyone who likes Italian food and great neighborhood ambiance. A real bonus is their Italian gelato ice cream and their pies. Very delicious! If one ever travels to South Haven I would recommend lunch or dinner at Maria's. You will be pleasantly surprised."
