The owner is so unfriendly looking and acts like you r stealing from him. He tries to charge u for everything, and even rips you off on the soda. Supposed to give u a liter, but gives u a can. Pizza wasn't worth the $14.50 with tax that I paid. The pizza was so skimpy and dry. I rather go to Domino's for 7.99,or Costco. I would not recommend this place to anyone, even though I know a lot of people in this area. Pizza is relatively cheap to make from scratch if u cut back on the ingredients to make a good pizza to make a few bucks people will never comeback. I have paid $25-30 for a good pizza like Totos because u feel satisfied and good. Regardless of a Groupon or not,place was awful.

The pizza wasn't good, even considering the Groupon savings. We ordered a second small pizza at full price ($10). Definitely a mistake. Restaurant also over-charged us. Said it was "tax" on $25 Groupon and 2nd pizza. OK, $25+$10=$35. Tax rate here is less than 10% (so the tax should have been less than $3.50). Can't explain charge of $16 and change. When I challenged it, charge went down to $14.50--still an overcharge. Wouldn't mind overpaying by $1 if the pizza had actually been good, but considering what I spent, and considering that the pizza was unsatisfying, it all left a very bad taste. One more thing--the restaurant's sign says Peppi's Pizza. Very confusing. Drove around in circles looking for Mama Maria's.

Unfortunately I would not return - as a first time customer with the groupon the person working seemed less than excited that we were there and using a groupon to boot - there was nobody else there-so seemed strange to me. The place was filthy - had to go outside to use the bathroom. We ended up taking it to go because it was uncomfortable there, the pizza was actually pretty good, but won't send me back. Sorry not a good review, have to say I have never had a bad groupon experience until this one.

Pizza is flat and tasteless..work on your dough and be more generous with the toppings.

The restaurant would not honor the Groupon certificate as a true payment certificate. The restaurant refused to honor the Groupon for any of the house combination pizzas and some other menu items. The pizza was one of the poorest values I ever received. Crust was cracker thin. Toppings were scarce, especially the chicken microbits. The extra large 18" pizza with five toppings fed only two adults. A similar pizza from Mr. Pizza Man would serve 5 adults. If the restaurant's purpose for signing up to a Groupon promotion was to cultivate a larger customer base, the plan is backfiring. Based on my experience, I will avoid Mama Maria's at all cost. There are too many other places that make better pizza at double the value that are much cleaner and don't have plywood boarded up store fronts.

Just because we come with a Groupon, doesn't mean that we have somehow insulted you or are lower class citizens. Groupon is usually a win-win situation - the costumer tries a restaurant they would normally not have visited, and will come back, if they have a good experience. And why would the pizzas not be a part of the Groupon deal?

From Our Editors

The resident chefs at Mama Maria's Ristorante have rolled out their own pizza dough for 20 years, crafting pies alongside platters of authentic Italian cuisine. Chefs use softly risen, house-made pizza dough to hold aloft ingredients including tandoori chicken, barbecue chicken, bacon, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes. The skilled kitchen staff sautés calamari with onion, green peppers, tomatoes, and olives for calamari siciliana, and sends spaghetti pomodoro out the kitchen doors to anoint fork tines with its complex marinara. Pizza-delivery service ferries pies sheathed in heat-insulated delivery bags to keep pizzas fresh. Mama Maria's also takes its culinary show on the road with catering services designed to feed hungry party guests or whole pasta-aficionado clubs.
