I went here with my girlfriend for lunch the day after a wedding. The food was great! Prosciutto pizza was different and amazing! The service was great. Couldn't have been happier with my day after wedding lunch!

Have been here for lunch before without complaint, unfortunately our first dinner here was a disaster. We arrived early for a special night dinner with our two children. Service was just ok through appetizer stage and then went torturously & slowly downhill. One hour after being served apps (carpaccio was good) we finally got our entrees - dry trout, burnt... More

Max a Mia in Avon is a great local default option. An appropriate choice for an informal night out, a business lunch, and a special occasion, it bridges the gap between informal and fine dining. The service is exceptional and the menu is an Italian twist on the Max chain's menu. As a local place, it offers reliably great meals... More

Arrived at Max a Mia...favorite place...don't get to go there that often. Ordered a drink...bartender reprimanded us for ordering drink loudly... Moderately embarrassed at that and felt my natural demeanor was insulted. Should we have had a rapport with one another ...would have excused it! Spoiled the mood and have never had that experience there. I do not expect this... More

In our group, three of the entrees looked very good, but the two of us who ordered eggplant lasagna found that it had a ton of cheese on top that was burned around the edges and hard to chew. The restaurant was extremely busy which might have been a factor.

Good upscale Italian food in a nice, but casual environment. A decent amount of choices on the menu as well. Great location on Route 44 near Simsbury and West Hartford as well. Staff is always friendly and competent.

Everything at this establishment is top quality. Food is amazing, service is excellent and the ambiance is very updated and friendly. After many years we came back here for Mother's day brunch, it was the best place for us. We loved everything we ordered and the waiter was so friendly and knowledgeable and very entertaining. We followed his suggestions and... More

At lunch I ordered fettucine with grilled shrimp. It had minimal amount of spinach and red pepper and minimal flavor to the sauce. Not typical for this restaurant. The bread was good. My friend had gnocchi with a red sauce which is fine.
