"Maria's Italian Restaurant: A Hidden Italian Food Gem"

February 14, 2013 at 9:06 AM

February 14, 2013, Scotch Plains, NJ - Remember in the film Mr. and Mrs. Smith, when Brad Pitt learns that Angelina Jolie’s character never actually cooked a dinner meal – not even on Valentine’s Day?   Well, guess what, you don’t have to either!

Have you been to Maria's on Park Avenue in Scotch Plains?  Fair warning... once you do, you will be hooked.  For 25 years, Maria's has been cranking out delicious pizza and homemade Italian fare like spinach rollatini, vegetable lasagna, delicious salads, FRESH soups...The menu options are well rounded and everything is made from scratch - including the desserts which are made by a local baker.

The atmosphere holds no judgment or pretense what-so-ever.  The ordering counter is right at the back entrance, which is also where you walk in and walk out, without ever actually having to enter the place.  The food is tasty, the prices are great, the portions are huge - so you'll definitely have enough for lunch the next day- and every entree includes a salad.  Hands down, Maria's is great bang for the buck.  It's like they're helping us to preserve the illusion of a simpler time when families actually ate dinner together every night at 6 o’clock.
