While in Avon, we had lunch at Max a Mia. My husband and I had the House made Veggy Burguer, it was a 10, perfect, full of flavor absolutly delicious. Cannot wait to go back to this Restaurant. Excellent service and delicious food, what else do you want?

We had Caesar salads, one with shrimp one with chicken, a Cobb salad and pasta bolognaise. All were delicious as was the accompanying bread with olive oil. We had dessert, bocce balls and bread pudding, also delicious. Service was super and the environment allowed for conversation.

I have been to this restaurant on several occasions to dine with friends. I have had mixed experiences that run the gamut of extremes.

Nice spot. Second time here. Good food. Nothing too fancy but the pasta dishes are all good. Nice lunch or dinner spot in sleepy Avon.

Very "unhappy" about their happy hour restrictions. We went there specifically for happy hour, having been to Max Fish's and Max Amore's happy hours. At those two Max restaurants, the happy hour menu is available in the bar area--at the tables and at the bar. I was VERY curtly told by the unhelpful hostess that the happy hour was only... More

I loved their food. The food is fresh and the cheese platter has great pairing options. The meatballs were good, as was the steak. We also got the prosciutto Di Parma which ended up being quite savory.

We were a party of 4 this past Saturday evening. Our reservation was for 7:15 and we were seated on time. Each of us ordered a different entre and were very happy and pleased with our selection. We had dined there previously but not recently but will definitely go back again soon. Great food and waitress staff. Can't wait to... More

The menu while not gigantic had something for everyone. You can get a good glass of wine with a nice pizza, an Italian classic like chicken parm or go upscale with some interesting, modern fish and veal preparations.

Great atmosphere. You can always expect to find the dish you last had to taste exactly like you remembered it. Good wine selection.

Always crowded. Specials are usually good. Half chicken especially good as well as the many salad options
