This is a little hole in the wall place right off of the McDonough square that is a true hidden gem. They have great food and a great atmosphere. Eat and enjoy.

Always consistently good -- great salads -- bread is awesome -- with or without the garlic -- and the pasta is just like you are in Italy -- not in MCDonough!!!

What strikes you upon arrival is the amazing smells coming from the kitchen. (Reminds me of my ex-girlfriend's grandmother's kitchen.) The staff were friendly, but not terribly observant. (Having worked as a server, I'm a bit critical.) More than one time I saw someone on their phone and dishes sat until the busboy came along despite wait staff walking by... More

This local favorite has been around for a long time and for good reason the food is great! The resturant is right off the historic square in Mcdonough. It gets crowded on the weekends so try a week night.

Great food, great atmosphere, right in the heart of McDonagh. Everything is made from scratch on a daily basis, and you can definitely taste the difference. The wait for a table on the weekend can get quite lengthy, but well worth it!

I've been a customer & fan ever since Pasta Max was in the Hotel in Stockbridge. My family & I ate there frequently. My kids grew up in this place! Since they moved to McDonough, it's hard to get there often, but worth the trip! This is my favorite place! The Chili Pepper Linguine is my fav! I LOVE PASTA... More

I found Pasta Max when I lived in Athens Georgia, which was about an hour away from Pasta Max but we went there for dinner at least once a month. Since moving to New Jersey we have been back several times. The seafood mixed grill and stuffed eggplant are to die for! By far the best I have ever had.... More
