Enoteca Maria

Italian in Staten Island

One of Staten Island's best culinary destinations, this delightful, warmly lit Italian eatery attracts foodies from near and far. The draw: exquisite old-world recipes that feature ingredients like fresh fennel, baked mussels, razor clams, sweetbreads and even lamb testicles – in dishes made with care by sweet but deeply knowledgeable nonne (Italian grandmothers). Come here for gustatory surprises.

This place is rightfully popular, so always reserve ahead.
