About us

Proudly serving authentic Italian cuisine to the Cornelius and Lake Norman area! Opening its doors in 2017, with over 35 years of experience , we have been creating authentic traditional homemade dishes reminiscent of the old world.

Now under new ownership the Rosario's have brought a modern yet casual atmosphere to Maola's, not losing sight of its roots. Original recipes remain intact however they have enhanced their menu with many more seafood , beef and even veal dishes, all prepared to order with the freshest ingredients available in the market. Also, a wide variety of specialty pies have been added, offering our diners more than just the classic Grandma and Sicilian pies. Each of the new menu items were carefully planned with passion and excitement, knowing that they would please our loyal following as well as our new diners.We look forward to having you soon and creating a memorable dinning experience for you and your loved ones!
