This is a Very Special Meal, Don't Miss It!

Tripadvisor did it again, THANK YOU! We are traveling to Atlanta and staying at the Hilton Garden Inn South, McDonough. I looked up restaurants and Pasta Max was #1. The restaurant is located off of I95 about 20 minutes and I would drive hours for this place. It is clean, the staff great, and... read more

Let me first say that I've been a McDonough resident for most of my life, and I'm a huge Italian restaurant junkie...It's my go to for every city I visit, and I've tried every Italian in Henry county. Unfortunately, Pasta Max falls very short of it's extremely overrated hype. The food, service and atmosphere is just so-so and okay-- all... More

We decided to try Pasta Max today as so many other places had 2+ hour waits. We had heard great things about this place so we tried it. Our 45 wait quote was actually a 15 minute wait. Our waiter, Jacob, was extremely attentive and took care of our family. He kept our drinks full and met our needs extremely... More

Just wanted to thank Doug, the owner of Pasta Max, for making my husbands 50th birthday a huge success. I planned a surprise birthday party and had all of the food catered by Pasta Max. To say it was a huge success would be an understatement. All of our guests were thrilled that the menu was from Pasta Max and... More

The hotel suggested this restaurant. The place was full but service was quick. The menu was basic Italian with some chef additions and the prices were fair. My disappointment was that the food was "just ok". With all the hype and trip advisor rating I would expect some of the best Italian food I ever tasted. After my visit I... More

My husband and I found this restaurant when we stopped for the night returning from Florida. It was fabulous - I highly recommend it. I had the breast of chicken and my husband had the lasagna and both were wonderful! Great wait staff as well.

My husband and I stopped in for an early dinner. He ordered the swordfish and I got Angel hair chicken with sun dried tomatoes, grilled and steamed vegi's.which was great. They have the most amazing rolls with olive oil, butter, garlic , parsley and parmesan cheese poured over them. This was for our anniversary and it was very special.

The food at Pasta Max is always the best. Very fresh, prepared to order. The wait staff has always been very friendly. Love going there for a quiet dinner with my husband or my family. Great value for the money. Huge portions! Save room for the yummy garlic bread!

My wife and I had a great Saturday night date at Pasta Max. The food and service was first class. I had Veal Parm with rigatoni and it was twice the size that I could eat. The same with my wife's seafood grill. It made a full meal for each of us the following night. And it was scrumptious. It's... More
