A Great Standard for Dining!

If I am wanting a good night out with good service and good food I head to Max a Mia. Over the years every meal I have had there has been enjoyable. The service is always solid. They change the menu enough that it keeps one interested. On my latest visit we had the fresh ricotta and it was... read more

We had a large group of about 20 people. Although we had reservations it took a little bit to get us seated. Nothing too bad. I was pleasantly surprised with the attention they provided our group. A round of drinks, then appetizers followed by a meal and finally desserts. All in all very well done. Lots of different choices and... More

We had a great time with our friends on a busy Friday night. We tried to call ahead and put our name in since we were right around the corner. They wouldn't take it but told us it was 25 min wait. Then we arrived put our name in...it then became 45 min. That was OK we went to the... More

Max a Mia has been around for a while- more than 10 years- and it is consistently good. I have been there over 20 times. I wouldn't say that it is my favorite Italian restaurant in the area but I'd be very surprised if someone went to Max and had a bad meal. The service is always very attentive without... More

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
