Do yourself a favor and drive over to Galasso's at Frenchtown if you want a good Italian food. Out of 4 plates we tried at Cafe Maria, none tasted good. The service wasn't good either.

My husband I had been meaning to stop in for some time and are glad that we did. Last minute Friday dinner out, and it was delicious. Nice selection of entrees, we did not go for the pizza but people at the next table did & it looked great. The pasta was good, fresh - veal tender and fish flavorful.... More

Would really give it three and a half stars if able to, but can't. Although the chicken caesar salad and Shrimp scampi personal pizzas were excellent, as well as the service...not a big fan of frozen mozzarella sticks and frozen peirogis. To top it off, was dying for tiramisu for dessert, and were told they ran out. Will try it... More

This restaurant is actually in Baptistown, not Frenchtown which 3 miles away. Very small place in a town that is really only a crossroads, so no one should be expecting upscale cuisine. It is good food, reasonably priced and small town charm. Good pasta, pizza, sandwiches and desserts. If you are ever in the area, you should stop by. There... More

We stopped in after finding all other pizza shops closed around 9:30pm. We ordered Sicilian pizza, regular pizza and a calzone. We were not impressed. Nothing seemed to have any taste to it. The bottom of our pizza was nearly black and dried out from sitting to long. The place is clean and the owner is very friendly. Glancing over... More

Quaint little Italian restaurant on Route 12 West in Baptistown, NJ. Bring the vino, they have the rest! The food is authentic Italian and the Seafood FraDiavolo is awesome! Want a little quiet time with that special someone, this is the place to go. They also have homemade gelato! Delicious!!!!

While traveling to PA we stopped at Cafe Maria thinking that we were going to have an every day, nothing special, pizza joint type meal. Boy were we wrong. They had a special on their menu that was one of the best meals I have ever tasted (and I have dined in Italy). The meal consisted of shrimp, mussels, clams,... More
