I work in an office near MaxaMia and go there all the time for lunch and dinner. Never had a bad meal, food is so flavorful from the bread, the salad all the way to dessert. Service is excellent. Recommend it without reservation!

As any of Max Restaurants, the food quality and service is always good. Very nice Italian menu. Space is a little bit crowded, but it's OK.

Friends visiting, birthdays, anniversaries - Max's is our go-to restaurant. Close to home, consistently good. A bit noisy but we don't mind.
