Great food and atmosphere but WAY over priced

I've been here twice. Both times the food service and atmosphere have been excellent and high quality, but seem to be way over priced. While the food is great, you can get the same good food at other nearby restaurants for cheaper. Not bad at all though and nice to go to once in a while.

Appetisers good, service good, main course a bit of let-down for an Italian restaurant (chicken pasta)

I always enjoy going to Max Amore. Whether with family, friends, or on business, I find the atmosphere relaxing and the food and service great. I love both the Chopped and the Tuscan salads. The soups are always quite good. The fish entrees and the steak are always great meals as well. Whether for s drink at the bar or... More

Went to dinner with friends and it was fantastic. The food is great and the servers are top shelf. Everyone ordered something different and raved about their dinner. This place is fantastic. The wine list is outstanding

The Toscana Salad, the Sea Scallops and the Tiramisu were very good, but still overpriced. The service was excellent. We had a table inside, but they also have a nice patio. All in all good dining experience, but had expected better value for money.

Another great meal at a Max restaurant. If you want really good Italian at reasonable prices come here. Good wine list also. We had antipasto appetizer, scallops, brocoli rabe, tuscan salad and two bottles of very good Italian red wine (can't remember the label). All four of us were stuffed and happy. You can't go wrong here.

As with all Max restaurants service is excellent. Half price bottles on Thursdays; nice selection of Italian reds - servers can offer good advice.

Came here for the 2nd time in recent memory, and had another great dinner. The burrata was great as was the main course the bombolitos. Be sure to ask for some ricotta on the side of the pasta to take it to another level. Only drawback of the evening was the Caesar salad, which was severely underdressed and watery. Otherwise...

We tried the Gluten Free Pizza. It was served unintentionally cold and the crust fell apart when handled. This was not an edible dish and should be removed from the menu.
