This is really the only Italian place that I truly and consistently like. Pizza, appetizers, pastas, and entrees are always very, very good. They always have a decent amount of specials too which are great (buffalo calamari once - oh my God!). Their cannolis are awesome also. Yes, it's a little tight but it's a small space! Make reservations.

Max's 31. Never enough tables to sit down at if you wish to dine in, and they have great food and a great menu with a wide variety of pizza, zeppoles and sandwiches. Minus one star for no room!

I love this place. I've been going to Max's for lunch for 4 years, and it's still my favorite in Flemington. They have great food, great specials, and a friendly staff. They have awesome sandwiches that you can get on their house made foccacia or a in a grilled wrap. There potato salad is so good that we always order an extra side, even when we order pizza. Monday's are pizza day, with a $6.99 large pizza special... and Monday through Friday, there are lunch express specials like chicken marsala, tilapia, and penne vodka for $5.95 or two slices and a can of soda for $3.95. And, the food is really great. Sometimes I just order a side of broccoli rabe sauteed in garlic and olive oil. The staff is always friendly, and I definitely want to try Max's for dinner! They are a BYO, and looks like they have great dinner specials!

Located in the Stop & Shop Center on Rt 31, but don't be fooled by the outside appearance of just another "pizza joint". While the pizza is excellent and they do a bustling take-out business, there is also a very nice, tastefully decorated, fine dining room in the back. Don't miss it as you won't be dissapointed.

This relatively small Italian Bistro is one of the best managed operations I have seen. The owner is hands on - graciously seating the guests while keeping an eye on the kitchen. This is not just a spaghetti house, as the menu contains not only the standard Italian fare but a nice choice of specials. Everything is made on premises, including the mouth watering bread and rolls plus the excellent garlic knots.
