Maria Ristorante has been on Emmons Avenue for over 70 years, and after a renovation in 2009, it’s back to cooking old-school Italian in an overly dim, pseudo-romantic setting. The narrow slice of restaurant serves up massive pasta plates, like the penne alla vodka, which leaves behind a pool of light cream sauce for swiping up with a piece of bread afterward, and an oily combination salad that could use some seasoning. While the restaurant may have a following for heaping seafood entrées, tender, paper-thin veal pizzaiola and hearty chicken franchaise give the fish a run for its money.
