    There were many gluten free options and the staff were knowledgeable about cross contamination. There were gluten free appetizers, main courses, and desserts. The food was delicious!

    Great little corner for Italian and American food. Love the atmosphere and great service. The gluten sensitive option are great for celiac people. Very aware people and they very knowledgeable in the matter of GF. So ask if you have doubts. Ate here twice no issues.

    Knowledgable staff, delicious food. The kids loved the GF pizza. The carbonara was amazing, and the spinach artichoke dip was served with tasty GF flatbread. My daughter who has celiac was excited to find Maria's, and she did not get sick! Highly recommend!!

    Sarah was EXTREMELY helpful! I explained that I have Celiac disease, and appreciate any precautions to prevent cross-contamination would be greatly appreciated. Had the spinach artichoke dip w/ GF flatbread, a Mediterranean GF pizza and an INCREDIBLY delicious GF chocolate cheesecake (seriously, OMG!) and had ABSOLUTELY NO reaction.... besides a full belly

    Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Artichoke dip with flat bread was good. Cheese ravioli was excellent. Small cafe atmosphere. Large selection of root beers. Amazing cheesecake!

    Extremely Celiac friendly! Numerous menu choices (including pastas), all very clearly marked. I had the GF pizza and it was very good. Old-fashioned, family atmosphere. Recommended!

    Great place to eat. I've eaten here twice now in the last two years when I've visited South Haven. Although there is a shared kitchen space, the staff are really good about making sure they do whatever they can to prevent cross contamination. All you have to do is explain that you have to be super careful and if you get pizza, just ask that all utensils and the space is cleaned off before they prepare and cook your pizza. They are great about it.

    Their gluten free pizza was so delicious! It tasted exactly like (really good) normal pizza, and even though on the menu it says they don't have a separate gf kitchen, when I explained to them I had celiac and had to be extra careful, they were sure to take extra precautions and cleaned all the surfaces they used to make my pizza. Highly recommend Maria's!

    Excellent restaurant. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and made some excellent recommendations. I had a gluten-free pasta dish with italien sausage. My son, had a gluten-free pizza. The pizza was so-so. The crust was soggy. I think this could be solved if they would put holes underneath the pizza pan while it's being baked. They offer many gluten-free options. I would highly recommend it.
