I visited here yesterday just for a sandwich and a coffee, I ordered a flat bread sandwich with Italian sausage and it was stunning. My partner also enjoyed her sandwich. Genuine nice owners and lovely food. If anyone is after a good choice in Italian wine this is a great place to pop in and take a look.

Six of us had a great evening in Max's. I started with a bruschetta, and it was superb. The secret of bruschetta is to use good, tasty tomatoes and these were full of flavour. My main course of spaghetti with mussels was very good, and to finish, I had pana cotta with amaretto washed down with a glass of dessert... More

This is a lovely little place for lunch. Fresh made ciabatta sandwiches at good prices with seating. There's also a good selection of Italian wine.

Bland food, service average, nice enough people, but something's missing. I can't put my finger on it. It doesn't feel sharp, it feels sloppy. Lacking atmosphere and passion. Little engagement. Should be brimming at lunchtime, but obviously there are other choices in the area. Not something I'll be repeating.

We went to this restaurant for the first time for a late lunch yesterday (Saturday) and really enjoyed the great food and friendly atmosphere. The food was well cooked and the service was good - with a smile! Will be coming back and have already recommended it to friends! Note for next visit - choose a smaller dish so I... More

Simply the best Italian restaurant in Tunbridge Wells. Small and cosy, wonderful friendly staff and first class food. Max and Molly are wonderful hosts- you instantly feel like you are on holiday in Italy. As the evening progresses you start to feel like one of the family enjoying a meal cooked with care and love. Cannot recommend it highly enough!

My wife and I have walked past this place (on the other side of the road) for years. Always thought it was a deli/cafe and that was it. How wrong were we. I googled Italian restaurants in Tunbridge Wells and it popped up. No pretention, just amazing Italian food and hospitality. We went for lunch and were pleasantly surprised. The... More
