Dinner was delightful.....appetizer, entre and choice of wine was absolutely wonderful. However, our server, Yasmine, made the experience all the better. She was knowledgeable and attentive (without being intrusive). So very well done. One last comment...we asked to be seated outside and our table was on the patio street side where we were able to talk to some passersby that we knew. A very European experience which we enjoyed thoroughly. All in all, a wonderful evening....thank you Maria's Cucina.

This is a delightful restaurant in a beautiful building, once a private residence, then a funeral home, now a really nice casual-elegant Italian restaurant. Very good food, and a pleasant ambience. Happens to be home TP Providence’s Italian Amercan Club. Good parking, too. The full Federal Hill experience, without the crowds.

My hubby and I had a Date Night at this great place. We sat at the bar where Sarah, the bartender was very attentive. Being a beautiful evening, we sat out on the porch for dinner . Remi was our server. She was personable and helpful. Food was fabulous as well! Highly recommended!

Delicious! The atmosphere of the restaurant was stunning. I absolutely loved the architecture of the historical building it is. Each room had such beautiful ambiance. The food was delightful. I had the mushroom risotto with scallops while my other half had the Lobster and spaghetti in Pomodoro sauce. He loved his, said it was very flavorful and fulfilling. I also enjoyed mine, it was the first time I had risotto and I definitely will have it again. The cheese cake was also amazing! So creamy and a hearty serving of it as well. Thanks for a fabulous meal!

Old school dining & atmosphere, calamari was just to our liking,
scallops and fruti di mare very good. The white table cloths and the incredible victorian interior adds to be he ambiance .
Outside dining on the wrap around porch and old school Italian ballads being played by the band makes for a relaxing summer dining experience.

From Chris the owner to the three waitresses that graciously too care of our party of 18, we had a dining experience that was over the top. There wasn't anything the wouldn't do for us and they did it with a smile and with one word. "Absolutely!" We have decided to make this an annual event at Maria's Cucina but I'm not waiting until this. I'll be back much sooner!

My wife and I are Providence, Rhode Island residents. We eat out frequently and this was the most disappointing dining experience we have ever had in the city. We had to send our entrées back, they were ill prepared and cold. The physical atmosphere in the restaurant was wonderful which made the dining experience all the more disappointing. I would not ever recommend this dining establishment to anyone.

The Caesar salad had no anchovies on it & no parmesan cheese grated or offered.

The scallops on the entree did not smell fresh

The service was excellent, just the food needs more attention to detail

Had an amazing birthday dinner at Maria’s Cucina. Hidden away from the hustle of the hill this restaurant could go unnoticed but definitely worth stopping by. The rollatini and calamari were great starters along with expresso and lemon drop martinis! The filet was paired perfectly with scallops per the recommendation of Remi who took good care of us all night. She was personable and helpful and made the experience even better. Highly recommend stopping by!

The place is absolutely beautiful, the food is excellent but the menu is limited. The services is always second to none, but the restaurant needs to keep the noise level down some large tables need to be in the side rooms as the noise level from one table made all the other tables have to almost yell to speak at our tables. The waiter told us their was nothing he could do even though many tables complained.

Setting is impressive with high ceilings and ornate woodwork. No sound absorption, so quite noisy. Service was ok. Our waiter was friendly but seemed to be serving in different rooms. He rarely checked in and took some time to deliver what we asked for. Food was not particularly good. Pasta prices were quite pricey.

I highly recommend Marias Cucina! The mansion it’s in is beautiful, the food is outstanding and the service by Jasmine was perfect. This was our second time there and everything was consistent. We were a party of 4 and we all loved our food....scallops, chicken Parm, Veal Parm, And the Carbonara was dream worthy!

If it wasn't for the noise from a large party nearby, I would have given a higher rating. Table next to us was very loud and obnoxious, took away from our experience.
Service was excellent until it was time to pay and leave. Had to ask for the waitress twice for the bill, again, this was escalated by the nearby table.
We ordered, but my wife did not receive what she ordered, ate it anyway, very good, but not her choice.
We would go back but would recommend large parties be seated elsewhere so as not to take away from a beautiful setting.
