Worth the wait

We did not have a reservation so we had to wait for 60 minutes for a table. This was not an issue for us but highly recommend making one. It was worth the wait. We were able to get a seat in the bar area. The service was exceptional in the bar area. We were able to get our drinks... read more

Max a Mia reduced their menu and may have changed chefs. The $19 gnocchi dish was swimming in salts, herbs, and other over the top flavors. The family style calamari was enough for two people and was $20. The stone pizza's were $15 to $19 and enough for one person. Wine averaged $9 a glass or $13 for glass and... More

Max a Mia was having a special feast of the 7 fishes for the holiday and my husband and I decided to give it a try. I am glad we did, the food was incredible! We ate blue point oysters with charred orange mignonette with Prosecco, bay scallops with Meyer lemon jam, salsify and chervil with a 2014 Tascante Carricante... More

Courteous staff welcomed us in the door...lovely christmas and lights decorated throughout the restaurant and the outside was stunning as well. Wonderful waitress....friendly down to earth and check in regularly......food delicious. We ordered the chicken parmesan and the organic chicken au jus with side of brussel sprouts.....both exceptional...large portions....definitely enough for tomorrow. Great experience as always.

We celebrated my grandson's birthday- it was his choice for a restaurant. Everything we ordered was the BEST! Try their signature roasted garlic on foccacio as their appetizer- you won't even want dinner. The pasta dishes were perfectly flavored, and the roast chicken was even special. Not inexpensive- but the long lines and wait for reservations will tell you how... More

Meal was good, not spectacular. The service was excellent. Cocktails were great. The place is fun but SO noisy. It's a happening place for a younger crowd.

Max a Mia is our local choice for Italian entrees including Pasta Bolognese, Pork Milanese and Pasta Vongole. The chopped salad and flat breads are filling and the Bocci Balls provide a unique dessert. The restaurant is often full so reservations are advised and there is a nice outdoor patio for summer dining.

Let's face it, this beautiful part of the country, has wonderful and helpful people and some good restaurants. Still if we want to be honest, we must say that finding an outstanding restaurant is quite challenging. You do get a number of middle of the road type restaurants like this one. Each has some pretty good dishes with a bunch... More
