I've lived in Glastonbury for over 20 years and enjoy eating at Max Restaurants. In recent years, Max Amore has not been my first choice for lunch or dinner. However, over the holiday I met family at Max Amore for lunch and it was very good. We had an excellent waiter and the service was terrific. I ordered a salad... More

Dined at Max Amore for the first time late this past June with my (then) Fiancé and a couple of our close friends for an early Friday night dinner. The outdoor seating was perfect for the warm summer evening and the service was great.

Get away from the typical suburban shopping area with a quiet Italian bistro. Excellent service and the lunch selections were tasty and quite filling. The Tuscan Burger was excellent...one of the best I have had...instead of fries get the matching Tuscan salad.

I attended a party at this restaurant Jan 3, 2015. We had choices for the entree and I tasted 2 of them . They were both scrumptious. One was grilled salmon with brussell sprouts an one was a char broiled steak with mashed potato. Every mouthful was delicious and lip smacking good. I will definitely go back again. And the... More

We loved this restaurant so much! A group of 7 of us dinned (including 3 children) early evening. The restaurant was packed, so glad we made a reservation. The atmosphere was fantastic, along with the service, but the food was absolutely amazing! Even before you order your meals, you are given the most wonderful roasted garlics with tomato sauce and...

I've eaten at 5 Max's. This is the only one that is a disaapointment. Ambience is lacking. THe locaiton is good, go to Max Fish instead. The servers are annoying, artificially friendly and intrusive, she must have interrupted me 5 times when I was in the middle of a sentence. Desert was good. I dont recommend it.

Love this place! Have been going here for years and years and never a bad meal. Recipes are consistently good and the desserts are something special if you have room. Bombolatti pasta is family favorite. Pasta with sausage, peas, and a creamy tomato sauce. Can't go wrong with any other dish and usually seasonal offerings. Good idea to make res... More

We were headed to Max Fish but they looked closed so we went into Max Amore. I don't think you can go wrong with either of them. Lovely decorations for the holiday. I had the Canolli Stuffed Challa Bread French Toast and it was awesome. my friend had Melanzana Portafoglio and she was in heaven. Both of these meals were... More

Great appetizer sampler and a fabulous, attentive waiter named Chris. 8 people of dinner, terrific drinks, great presentation on stands, delicous fresh baked artisan break and roast garlic. I did find the menu a little lacking, so opted for a nice salad with grilled shrimp. It was fresh, plentiful and delicious. We opted for family style dessert with 2 of... More

The Max chain doesn't have a bad restaurant in the group. I frequent Max Amore and normally get the same meal everytime...the Tuscan salad with grilled shrimp and polenta croutons. Call me crazy but I love the combo of flavors and textures.
