Max Amore is an Italian restaurant that pays attention to the details. Tremendous service; for example, we wanted a martini with blue cheese stuffed olives. Although they didn’t have them, our waiter offered to make them up (blue cheese + olives). We started with the salami plate, had the mussel appetizer, and shared a shrimp linguine dish. The mussel appetizer... More

From great salads to special pizzas and a lot of variations in between. Many of us locals return again and again because the food is very consistent. Unlike many of its relatives (other MAX restaurants), Amore has much more of a local casual flair.

I stopped in for lunch. Although they were busy, the service was prompt. The lunch menu had a good range of choices, but I chose a special pasta dish. Their calimari was prepared well, and had a nice flavor. The pasta was cooked to perfection, and the dish was excellent. I would certainly go back here again.

The food was delicious. There was a lot of choice too, even for children. Service was good. We were there for a late lunch so the restaurant wasn't crowded at all.

Highly rated in the greater Hartford area, max s'more is well worth a visit. The Italian food was excellent and the wait staff were knowledgeable about the menu. Atmosphere was fine, but a bit noisy. Definitely a go to place.

Went a few weeks back with the family for dinner during their lobster special. Had a not so great experience... I let them know, and they immediately offered for us to come back another time, on them. Will let you know how that visit goes!

We were there once before, several years ago but walked out because it was so noisy. This time we were sorry we stayed. We were there to celebrate but neither one of us liked our food. However, when my wife wasnt going to eat hers, I tasted it and I liked hers...I finished it! I had spaghetti and the worst... More

My boyfriend and I had dinner here the other night. The restaurant was really romantic and never got too loud, despite their being a party in the adjoining room. My boyfriend started with a salad that had fresh mozzarella and said it was delicious. He had the sunday gravy and raved over how fresh the sausage was. I had the... More

I was in from out of town and went with friends who eat here all the time. The food is overall very good. They start you with olives, bread, and roasted garlic. The sautéed calamari is excellent. My grilled pork chop was good, as was the grilled chicken and swordfish my friends have. Our server was a bit too friendly,... More
