Via Maria has done a great job creating an Italian ambience. Quaint setting inside, lovely outside patio in the summer. The menu changes frequently and is not extensive, but the chef is excellent and you will not be disappointed. The selection is largely pasta and pizza, although there are also usually a couple of fish or poultry choices as well. Good wine selection. Prices are moderate. Service is good as well. They also have a small bar area for socializing. I have not found too much of a wait for a table on most occasions.
