The food and service at this restaurant is outstanding. Reasonably priced and is one of my favorite. We would eat there a lot more however the acoustics are horrible. Old brick walls and absolutely no sound deadening. Those of us who wear hearing aids are miserable the entire visit except for the outstanding quality of the menu, prep, and great... More

Pasta Max is located just off the Square in McDonough Ga. First time I was invited to go there, I asked if that was the "hole in the wall Italian place?" It was. The "hole in the wall" turned out to be one of its many blessings. I have had about 30% of the item menus and have always enjoyed... More

We went on a Friday night, and saw that the place is pretty small, so we expected quite a wait, but the staff moves everything efficiently and we only waited about 30 minutes (table for 4). First, the rolls with garlic butter are delicious! I had a creamy crab soup and it was meaty and delicious. The salads were just... More

A friend if mine and I were shopping on the square and decided on Pasta Max for lunch. Food is absolutely wonderful. Only problem I see is the restaurant is very small.

When on our road trips, I always research as to where the lunch or dinner spots are to be. And have not been steered wrong yet. Because of Matthew, we got pushed west on our trip to Florida and ended up staying overnight in McDonnough GA. Pasta Max was all it was said to be, good eats,nice atmosphere and an... More
