If you are in Glastonbury you have to go there. Everybody does. It's pleasant and hearty. At times it gets busy but you can eat at the bar. I go there quite a bit.

Large restaurant that's always busy. Superior service. Frequent specials every week of an app, entre, stone pie, and dessert. Half price wine bottles on Thursday with an excellent selection of Italian reds.

The Max Tradition of Excellence continues. Previously we tried the other restaurants in this group; this one matches their reputation for food, service and setting. Easy to locate. Free parking. Met one of the chefs and asked for a suggestion for a lighter meal. Followed his advice and was more than pleased. While not a devotee of dessert, I confess... More

Enjoyed a leisurely lunch with two clients. Antipasto appetizer was tasty, but undersized/overpriced. Max a penne was good as usual, although chicken was a little tough. Clients had salmon (cooked perfect and client raved) and pasta with shrimp in a rose vodka sauce. She ate every bite. As usual service was accommodating and kept the water glasses full and made...

Apparently this is the place to be on a Thursday evening. Staying in a hotel nearby for business and i got here around 5:30 on a Thursday. They had happy hour specials going and the place was packed. Lots of space for group get together and a bar area to wait and get drinks. Staff was busy but still very... More

I've been coming here for years, ever since it opened. Between the exposed kitchen and the undercurrent of diner's voices, It has a vibrant energy, but isn't "noisy." Excellent for date night or otherwise special night. The bar is ideal for friends to meet for a drink, especially at one of the tall bar tables (where you can also order... More

We have been eating at Max Amore for over two decades. Up until this visit the service and food have been consistently good. We have enjoyed the Sunday brunch about half a dozen times. We ate the fixed price brunch. Even with this standard meal, it was the better part of half an hour before our order was taken. We... More

Service was good. I had the Philly style sandwich. Very plain sandwich missing a lot of flavor. Not sure why this place is such a local favorite.

Top notch service, tasty food, beautiful decor and nice atmosphere. I had a Toscana salad and it was really good I just wished I copied the table next to us and got it as my meal. My husband had his usual Caesar and we shared two pies. The pies were good not great. The mushroom one had a nice flavor... More
