Delicious start with garlic,buttery rolls. The chef and staff know their services perfectly. The black pepper, chicken paperdelle is perfectly cooked. The pizza was excellent. The angel hair spaghetti, wow. We were all pleased, even youngsters. House wine, good choice.

Tasty Italian in a friendly environment. It gets really busy on weekends. One of the best options in downtown McDonough.

We stopped at Pasta Max for lunch and while crowded, we were seated immediately. Menu is quite nice however we went with the special that day. It was outstanding. Additionally service was prompt and pleasant.

Food was okay (pasta was overlooked rather than al dente) but the ambiance was the high point of this eatery in this little town.

Had to wait about 20 minutes for a table - definitely worth the wait! The food was delicious (chef is graduate of Culinary Institute) and priced very reasonably. We brought home our leftovers. Looking forward to returning another time!

We eat at Pasta Max about once a month. Everyone's favorite for birthdays! Very large portions, fresh, good service. You can bring your own wine (just pay a small uncorking fee)! I wish they had a bar and a waiting area.

The food and service at this restaurant is outstanding. Reasonably priced and is one of my favorite. We would eat there a lot more however the acoustics are horrible. Old brick walls and absolutely no sound deadening. Those of us who wear hearing aids are miserable the entire visit except for the outstanding quality of the menu, prep, and great... More
