About Us

We are proud of who we are today.  Take a moment to read about how Ristorante da Maria came to be!

Our Story

Our story starts when this family business’ owner entered the food service industry experience. While the owner George started his internship during his MBA from Santa Clara University, he got the opportunity to learn about professional food industry and customer service. Meanwhile, he worked with his brother, who owned a restaurant business in downtown San Jose. After graduating University, George started working with a big food industry in South San Francisco, and since then his passion to serve others and customers grew and expanded. It became a vision, to open a restaurant with tasty food, and it became called Ristorante da Maria.

The specific passion to cook was inherited from George’s mother and grandmother, both of whom loved to cook and serve others. Inheriting their passion and artistic flare is sure to help us to provide quality food and service to our dear customers.

We at Ristorante da Maria have picked our Chefs and employees carefully in order to bring you the best cuisine, and to realize that life-long dream. We’re glad to bring Ristorante da Maria to life and hope to extend wonderful service to each and every one of our guests!

We Yelped this on our way to San Francisco. 5 stars is for the food. Everything we ordered was made to order and very, very good! We had the fettuccine Alfredo, lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs, pepperoni pizza and garlic bread sticks.

Very pleasant, we went here for lunch today, party of 3. We had an order of cheesy bread which was crisp pizza crust with cheese and a some marinara for dipping, It was just the right amount of appetizer.

Spouse & I were hungry on the way home from a shopping excursion and decided to stop here for lunch on a whim. Glad we did! He had a chicken parm sandwich, I had a veggie calzone, and we split a mista salad. Delicious all around!
