Mama Maria's Ristorante
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.
