“Italian Sandwich typical of Maine, Soup not so much”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Typical "Amato's type" sandwich i've come to like during my visits to Northern Maine. Soup was obviously a canned version and someone forgot to add the needed water (way too thick) .

“Awful!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

If your idea of Italian food (in the form of a sub) is white bread, with a thick slab of american cheese, a few tasteless tomatoes, onions and green peppers, then this is the place for you. I also tried a 10 inch pizza and it was pathetic, burnt and the sauce was terrible. This chain (I've tried both the Freeport and Waterville restaurants) makes Subway look like fine cuisine. Avoid Sam's Italian Foods at all costs! It is not even close to real or even quasi-Italian food!
