Honestly, very good restaurant, I ate here for the first time a few weeks ago and I will more then likely visit again. It was very busy when I was there, food took a bit to come out but it was definitely worth the wait. I do reccomend it to anyone in the area, I wasn't blown away but I... More

Went for a family dinner as a treat. They always have great service and excellent food. I never eat bread at restaurants because it spoils my appetite, but here I make an exception. You must eat the roasted garlic spread on the bread and dip it in olive oil. So, so good! We regularly get the Tuscan salad with polenta... More

We went out for a nice dinner with my boyfriend's parents. Overall the food was good but the staff was par at best. The hostess was not very friendly and really was just concerned with checking her phone in her drawer than with being accommodating. We have been here before and will most likely go back. The Max chain still... More

My husband and I dined here for lunch while in town for a hockey tournament right before the holidays. Each dish from the soup to the salad and even the bread brought to the table beforehand was mouth watering and delicious. The tomato bisque was unlike anything bisque I had every had and each of our chopped salads had a... More

Max-a-Mia is the place to go with friends and family for both good food and an active restaurant scene. We enjoyed our entrees so much during the Fall Taste of the Suburbs that we went back several nights in a row. We enjoyed the seafood appetizers, pasta vongole, chopped and farm salads and bocci ball deserts. We also enjoyed eating... More

Being from the Boston area (The North End)I am always hesitant to eat Italian food elsewhere. Max a Mia certainly could survive in the heart of the north end, hands down... Started with a Tuscan salad... Best salad I've ever eaten in my life hands down. Although trying not to eat carbs (Italian restaurant no carbs haha) I had to... More

We had a very good experience recently. Received the table we requested. Seated promptly. Hostesses we on the ball. The restaurant was very busy. I had the feeling they were just a tad short of servers. The meal service lacked energy. Wine list had some good selections. Wine opened and presented professionally. Meatballs family style I could skip the next... More

An Italian restaurant that sometimes misses the mark. Consistency is what is missing from a restaurant that has the ability to do better! My wife and I have enjoyed most of our dining experiences at this restaurant as the food is usually very good, service is excellent, and the ambiance is just fine. The menu offerings are somewhat limited and... More

While on Business to Avon I decided to try this restaurant because I was in the mood for Italian food. So I saw the ad at the airport and decided to go. I was sat promptly as It was the "tail end" of lunch time. I sat for about 10 minutes before my server "got to me." No worries because... More
