Sicily-Inspired Foods in the Heart of New Jersey

Maurizio’s Pizzeria & Italian Grille has two locations in New Jersey: Neptune and Mays Landing. Dine in one of their authentic Italian restaurants, or place an order and have it delivered. The restaurant also provides catering, which is perfect for office lunches, birthday parties, baby showers and more.

The owner of the restaurant – Maurizio – was born in a small town in Sicily and came to the United States when he was just seven years old. He always had an interest in cooking and spent many days watching his mother and grandmother prepare traditional Italian cuisine.

As Maurizio got older, he worked at a family pizzeria in Las Vegas to learn the ins and outs of running a business. At just 18 years old, he opened his first pizzeria. Today, Maurizio and his wife run two, successful Maurizio locations where quality ingredients and authentic Italian dishes mark their continued success.

Why Maurizio’s Comes Highly Recommended by Our Team

It’s no secret that the SEMGeeks team loves to eat! Here are a few of the reasons why we have nothing but amazing things to say about Maurizio’s Pizzeria & Italian Grille.

  • Huge selection of authentic Italian food, including pizza, homemade soups, pasta dishes, gourmet salads and subs, fresh-pressed paninis and entrees using the freshest chicken, veal and seafood.

  • Quick lunch options that allow you to grab-and-go. A few of our favorites include stuffed breads, stromboli and calzones. All are heated on site.

  • Freshest ingredients that you can smell when you walk through the doors. The breads are freshly baked each day, and the sauce simmers in huge pots with garlic and olive oil.

  • Great service that is happy to accommodate families and groups. They also give you the option to pick up the food or have it delivered to your door.

  • BYOB is allowed onsite. Enjoy a gourmet meal and save money by bringing your own adult beverages.

  • Unique gourmet pizza options that you can’t find anywhere else. A top pick for us: the Shrimp Scampi Pizza that includes shrimp sauteed with garlic, oil, lemon, butter and white wine and then placed on mozzarella crust. Così buono.

Maurizio’s Pizzeria & Italian Grille has it all – delicious food, high quality ingredients and great service. You can order the staples that other pizzerias have, or you can try something unique that can’t be found at other restaurants. Outside of pizza, the menu is expansive and includes everything from baked pasta dishes to hot and cold subs and meals for the kids. Our last piece of advice: Finish off that meal with an authentic Italian dessert, such as a slice of Tiramisu or creamy Cannoli.
