Maria’s was established with the idea of creating an atmosphere that is comfortable and feels like home while offering a great meal at a reasonable price. It is our goal to make every customer feel like part of our very own family.
Originally from Carini (Sicily), set on a hill overlooking its very own bay, Peter Sparacio came to Virginia in 1976 and opened their first family restaurant in Staunton. Peter’s daughters, Josie and Nancy created Maria’s, based on our enthusiasm for food, our love for cooking and our passion for serving others.
Our dream is to share that passion with you through the authentic tastes of Italy – we put a little bit of love in everything we serve.
