With a variety of sandwich options from my Habitat for Humanity group - from traditional to not so traditional -, Amato's was able to satisfy our needs in a timely fashion. Don't forget a bag of chips on the way out (a wide variety.) Loved...More

We were in a bit of a hurry, and decided to give Amato's in Kennebunk a try. Two salads were large and good. A calzone was ordinary at best though a large serving. A small eggplant parmesan sandwich was a large helping, but nothing special....More

Brought the family for some quick takeout. Had my last Italian sandwich over 50 years ago, back when they weren't called "Original Italians" (: Was happy to see that the roll, the sour pickle slices, the green peppers, the oil, and the wondrous black olives...More

The "Real Italian" offerings of the original Amato family sandwich shops have gone the way of all businesses that try to spread out in all directions. The location of the Amato's nearest me is at a terrible corner to negotiate nearly all the time. Their...More

While now Maine in preparation of moving there from another state, we stopped in for a quick bite to eat. We got a wheat Caesar wrap. Sandwich was very good but unfortunately this store had no heart healthy alternatives in addition to the sandwich ....More
