Review of Max a Mia

70 E Main St, Avon, CT 06001

Overall Rating


From reviews and online GF menu, looked promising. Extensive GF menu, and staff seemed knowledgeable and were accommodating. HOWEVER, watching how food was being prepared (in the open kitchen), I have reservations about how celiac-safe this restaurant can be. For example, as a celiac, I would be very nervous to order any of the entrees cooked in the wood oven (this includes chicken, fish, etc), because the chef working the wood oven was also tossing pizzas and his arms and hands were covered in flour. It looked like he was using the same pizza peel to pull out the entrees, so there could be a LOT of opportunity for x-contamination. I played it safe and ordered a salad from the GF menu, and was fine, though honestly I would have liked to have had something more interesting (but from what I could see, I didnt feel safe ordering anything else).
