My favorite location in this region. More dine in space and less crowded layout overall. Food great as always.

There is nothing like Amato's...My friends come from NYC and as they are driving towards Maine they are calling in their order. For as long as they are here, they have an italian sandwich per day! Of course they get their pizza and calzones etc. but the italian sandwich is always on their menu! I live here, I understand.

Ok sandwich shop, living in reputation of the original Italian Sandwich maker. Others do a better job in Maine.

Located on the corner of South and Main Streets, Amato's has limited parking to the rear. Food quality is average for a local chain take-out venue. Seating is in the rear, but can be limited on weekends. Rest room is poorly maintained.

if you are located in a college town, you must be good and Amato's is excellent for sandwiches, pizza and pasta and meatballs -

Soooooo..... here's the thing about Amatos: any person of Italian heritage or moderatley sophisticated palate will likely NOT be impressed by any of the offerings of the Amato's franchise. I'm certainly not "impressed" by it overall. The idea of an "Italian" sandwhich being made with cheap boiled ham, American cheese, a few sour pickles, green peppers (julienned), tomato slices, a...

This was our first stop once we arrived in town for a visit. Having grown up in Gorham, Amatos is a favorite and their Italian Sandwiches simply cannot be beat. We have lived in many places and there is no comparison! We made a couple of trips in for the sandwiches and another for their pasta buckets, their sauce is... More

People from away need to understand that this sandwich was named after the nationality of the individual who invented it at a time when sourcing ingredients was difficult. The workers from the Commercial Street docks would go to 'the Italian' and ask for a meal to carry to work- he put together this delicious combination and the customers named it... More
