Maria’s Safety Protocols

Marias Italian Kitchen cares deeply for the safety of our staff and patrons. Here are the Safety Protocols that we have implemented to ensure everyone stays safe while enjoying the delicious Italian food you've all come to love:
Steps for SAFE SERVICE:

Call to Reserve a Table, Order Your Meal Ahead, Join us! WE miss you.
Our mission at Marias is 100% guest satisfaction and our culture is based on the foundation of caring for our customers, coworkers, and communities, and treating them like family.

WHY?

In an effort to follow the LA County Health Department regulations and due to our Limited Seating we have created a program that will allow our customers and staff a safe environment while offering quality time to enjoy a meal within an hour.

How it Works

Customers Call ahead to Reserve their table.
We Take their Name, Phone Number, and Email, and time and day the want to join us; Number of guests is Max 6 persons.
We check available time slots and if the time slot is full, we can offer alternate times that are available.
Times will be on the hour and allow 10 minutes for sanitizing between guests.

We ask that guests order their meal ahead.
Don’t know what you want? That’s ok,
Download our Menu and we will call you back on the DAY of your reservation between 1 pm - 4pm to take your order. You can always add on when you arrive.
Taking the food order ahead will allow more time when guests arrive to sit down and enjoy the experience of Dining Out Again. 

We Greet you, Seat you, and tell the kitchen to prepare your hot food while we bring beverages and our Famous Hot Rosemary Bread.

Our goal is to allow our guests to enjoy a meal outdoors, so we are testing an Order Ahead for DINE-IN at Marias program.

Eat, Drink, Smile...  Thank you for your Loyalty, Maddy Alfano
