Maola's Pizzeria & Restaurant

Authentic Italian Cuisine

Proudly serving authentic Italian cuisine to the Cornelius and Lake Norman area!

Opening its doors in 2017 the original owner, with over 35 years of experience , created 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!

All of our many dishes have been carefully created to ensure our guest can experience the true authentic taste of Italy. Using fresh garlic, basil and parsley in many of our dishes and homecooked sauces we have been able to create truly tasteful cuisine.

Maolas does not only specialize in delicious pastas but also in traditional New York Style “ hand-tossed” pizza!

One of only a few places in the LKN area that serves the famous Grandma Pie as well as the thick crusted Sicilian Pie. Our Margherita Pie made with fresh basil, hand cut tomatoes and fresh mozzarella is one of a kind! We have also included our own specialty pies like the Mediterranean, The Spicy Italian and the Maola`s Special.
