They have an entire menu just for bloody Mary's. And the rest of the menu leaves nothing out. A great Sunday brunch means every meal at once and Max Amore delivers. I would have give five stars but the service was spotty though they may have been understaffed

Although there was a 30 minute wait, I was able to grab a table in the bar. The food was excellent, as was the wine. They had a great basket of bread with garlic and olive oil. My only regret??..I didn't have dessert!

This is Italian style restaurant. Offers great food and wide choice of good wines. I would recommend it to anybody who likes Italian food . Great place to meet with friends.

Three of us dined at the Max Amore in Glastonbury on 11/8/16. I had made a reservation but the hostess told us when we arrived that we would have to wait for a table as they were very busy and we could try to get a table in the bar if we wanted to. I replied to her, that the... More

We ended up here yesterday and we were a bit disappointed... Ordered Pinot Grigio to start while we looked over the happy hour menu and it wasn't cold, barely cool (ok I put ice in it) . We ordered a stone pie, Dry rubbed Tuscan Chicken Wings, and Arancini. The stone pie was very good. The chicken wings were ok... More

We have been Max customers since the very first place opened on South Main umpteen years ago. A Saturday night full restaurant of more or less happy people and an efficient staff is a tribute to their consistent quality. They have probably turned out more reliable pasta dishes than all the other Italian restaurants in the area combined. Yet, it... More

I'm biased towards this place because I got engaged here. We just returned for our 19th wedding anniversary, and the food was just as good if not better. I had the gnocchi - handmade - with shrimp in a saffron cream sauce. My hubby had a pasta chicken dish. Both were yummy and filling. The coffee is excellent and the... More

Celebrated an anniversary with dinner with my spouse. Food was excellent and drinks were good. Atmosphere not the greatest for a romantic dinner as it was very loud and setup not conducive to intimate dining but still a very nice night. Had reservations and was seated within a reasonable period of time -- restaurant was very busy. Would certainly return.

Compare this place with Bricco Trattoria and they lose. Big time. Food was ordinary. From an uninspired Caesar Salad with crutons as hard as granite to lukewarm espresso, this was a major disappointment. Third time will not be a charm - as two strikes and you are out.
