A Side of Ricotta

Had a wonderful evening with my girlfriend for our anniversary. The service was top notch, and extremely friendly. The atmosphere was warm with a nice view of the pizza oven.

We had a very long very tiring day. It was our first visit the Max a Mia. By the time we left the world was perfect again. The kids meal was perfect in size and nutrition. The spaghetti was the best we've ever had. We will definitely revisit.

We had a very good dinner last week on our first visit. We were travelling from out of state and just happened upon Max a Mia. The service was good and fast as we were dining later on in the evening so it worked out well as we were hungry. Cocktails and wine were very good. We had the Bolognese... More

My family and I visited Max a Mia's last night. We ordered both the Red & White Sangrias-yummy! I ordered the Bolognese, my hubby ordered the Filet Mignon special and my daughter had kids spaghetti and meatballs. LOVE how they plate the kids meals with an entree, fruit, veggie & cookie! Our meals were delicious and nice size portions. I... More

The wait staff is very attentive, in my case to the dietary restrictions of my guest. I noted this on the online reservation and they paid attention. However, my guest arrived before I did and was seated, and the front desk apparently was unaware of this. After 10 minutes in the waiting area, I called my guest and she informed... More

Always a nice menu and the best of Max's are in Connecticut. Sorry Springfield. We shared a Tuscan Salad and thoroughly enjoyed, as always, the polenta crutons! Seafood was the selection by all in our party. Scallops sweet and not fishy tasting. and the garnishes with the fish was to die for. A polenta slice of cake ended a great... More

We have been going here for YEARS, and it is always delicious! Last night was no exception. We had Tuscan salads, the calamari (my fave!), cheeseburger kids meal (includes fruit, fresh veggies, fries, a cookie and a drink), and gnocchi with a pesto sauce. Everything was awesome. They are always accommodating with special requests and the server was very nice... More

Firstly, I must say I am a regular contributor to TripAdvisor, fair and reasonable in my ratings overall, and rarely do I give a restaurant a 2 rating. My friend and I came here for dinner last night. It was the first time for both of us. We were told the wait would be 15-20 minutes on this busy Tuesday... More

My friend and I visited Max A Mia for lunch recently. For a Tuesday, it was surprisingly busy. I was happy to see that they have outdoor seating also, though we decided to sit inside. My friend brought her infant, and the hostess was very accommodating and helped us find an appropriate table to fit a car seat. Both of... More

Always consistent and always good. Food quality is tops. Any of the stone pies is a special treat. Max restaurants are all very good and you know going in that you are in for a fine meal.
