Great weekday lunch!

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... read 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

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.

Very professional staff, excellent Italian based cuisine with show stopper specials. Once your drinks arrive, you are served with a great basket of bread with spicy marinara and roasted garlic on the side, and a little bowl of olives, all of it delicious. The stone pies rock, and the Spaghetti Vongole is mind boggling. Hands down best place in Avon... More

If we have out of town guests and don't want to risk anything but the best service and reliably well prepared food, not more than 15 minutes from home, this member of the Max family of restaurants is top of mind.

We met our nephews-locals to the area and known at the restaurant for lunch. The décor inside is much nicer than the street view. We were promptly seated and very well greeted. Two of us chose pasta plates, two burgers one lunch salad. Three people left hungry. Both the pasta and salad offerings were more than a little stingy in... More

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 amazing!... 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
