Based on on-line reviews we went
the other night. Great neighborhood restaurant. The food was good, not great; flavorful, but not particuarly memorable. The service was really mixed. They were very well intentioned, but the execution was forgetful, at best. Given the size of the restaurant (small), I found that hard to believe. We will go back, just not running."

Max has amazing no frills Italian
food for the right price. The menu sticks to the basics and for that they have perfected their ways. Food was delicious and the restaurant itself is quaint and perfectly decorated. Will definitely make it a staple of my new neighborhood."

Cheap mozzarella on pizza,
less-than-fresh burrata "special", fresh pepper offered for salads but not main course, long wait between apps and entrees."

I could drink their spaghetti
sauce its so good! I have been here twice and the food is fresh and tasty."

Decided to try this out after
finding it on open table. My friends and I got a reservation the day of which was great and the wait staff was very attentive. Bread basket was great and the food came out very quickly which was good considering we were all very hungry! Reasonable prices too! Will definitely be back!"

food was okay, not overly
impressed with the apps. entree portions were enough to feed two, which is always good. authentic italian dishes. wish the service was a little better considering it was only a few people in the restaurant when we dined. requested waiter to celebrate two birthdays and i guess she forgot, bummer. may return again but not a guarantee"

Cute Italian restaurant tucked
away in TriBeCa. Reasonable prices, especially for the area. The space is somewhat small and rather dark, but the food is good and the location is near multiple subway stops. My panini was $13 and enough for 2 meals; that's the best 'bang for your buck' option, but the pastas & entrees are also good too ($15-18 but also good for sharing or 2 meals). "

We brought our 18 month old
grandson and they were wonderful to us. The food was very good and the atmosphere was great. The service was outstanding. I would highly recommend this restaurant. "

Max is a terrific little place,
tucked away on Duane--great food, terrific environment, and attractive price. A couple of friends were in from out of town and this was the perfect spot for a nice dinner. The pastas were delicious. "

First time coming to Max.
Atmosphere is great for a date with low lights and rustic decor. Food was good. We had squid spaghetti with shrimp which was good and the cod which was a bit salty. We also had the tiramisu which was recommend but not the great, way to sweet. Service was nice. The weather outside was in the high 70s and there was no air conditioner on so it was a bit hot. But will try again. They are very nice. "

Good food in intimate settings. I
will definitely return."

Great spicy black spaghetti with
shrimp, wonderfully tender calamari, very nice staff. Lasagna and spaghetti with lamb ragu were okay. The only real disappointment was the carpaccio -- very sparse dish, with meat so thinly cut that it tore as you tried to pick it off the dish. Also, do not go for a quiet meal -- the place is extremely loud, despite its size."

This is the second time I've been
to Max. Both times afforded me a very nice meal, with good service. While I probably would not go far out of my way to eat here, I would certainly return gladly if looking for a good Italian restaurant in Tribeca. "

Max TriBeCa has been one of our
go-to neighborhood restaurants for many years, great for low-key local dinners as a couple or with friends and out of town guests. We were a bit underwhelmed by our visit this past weekend, however. Just seems like their attention to detail is slipping--large chips in several of our plates/bowls, a Bounty paper towel wrapped around the bottle of wine we ordered (really?!), and both our dishes were way overcooked. None of these were unforgivable offenses, but just makes you wonder. We'll give them another chance and hope this was just an isolated experience."

Dined here before, still good! 1st
time w/my kids & they had a kids menu"

We were looking for a good Italian
restaurant that was close to the Tribeca Performing Arts and came across Max while searching on line. It's a great little place with an authentic ambience, very good foods, a pre-performance fixed price meal with a large variety of choices, friendly service and very reasonable prices.The Halibut was great as was the homemade Gnocchi and the bruschetta. The unique vanilla and chocolate ice cream frozen dessert was worth the trip by itself. Plan on going again soon."
Dined on 3/27/2014
Nice neighborhood place for a good
meal at a reasonable price. Food was well worth the money charged, but not spectacular by any means. Service was a little off, but OK...overall good place for a reasonable Italian dinner and not break the bank. Nioce wine selection, reasonable prices as well on wines."

Max's is definitely tucked away in
Tribeca, and is a good spot to grab a romantic bite, or catch up with friends or a business partner. Their dishes are pretty dependable (and I've had a fair bit of it), and they have a full bar if you're into that sort of thing."

Max is special to me because it
was where my husband took me on our 1st date nearly 4 years ago. We were married exactly 1 year later. We've only returned to Max a handful of times to keep the experience special and unique, as well as nostalgic. This past time was the first time we'd been to the Tribeca location. Each time prior had been at the East Village location which unfortunately is now closed. The experience remained just as special because we invited some friends from out of town to join us who we hadn't seen in about 2 years. They reveled in the food just as we had, and said they can't wait to go again the next time they're in town. It was the perfect evening with friends, food, and wine, topped off with tiramisu and cappucino."

This small, yet intimate spot is a
great way to begin a night out or a cozy way to close down an evening. The experience here depends largely on how many and what type of diners experience the restaurant during your visit. Reservations are suggested, especially for weekends, and be ready to overhear all conversations going on around you. In terms of food, we found the Pizza di Max to be somewhat falsely advertised (had a hard time finding the fennel, though the mushroom flavor came through), and we found the Mushroom Ravioli absolutely on point. The olive oil was terrific, as well. Overall, we had a satisfying experience and will return."

The food is fantastic. One of my
favorite, intimate Italian spots in NYC."

From the moment we walked in, the
hostess Rosanna, told us we would need to vacate our table for another party because they booked all reservations back to back. She tried stopping us from ordering dessert or more wine to rush us out. She was very rude. I wouldn't go back because of her."

We had a great dinner at Max in
late January - great rustic Italian food and nice wine list - even catered for kids without fuss - cool vibe without being too pretentious."
Dined on 1/31/2014
Easy, relaxed, very casual
atmosphere and reasonably priced."
Dined on 1/18/2014
The food and service was great and
it was a nice opportunity to have a low key dinner with friends. I ordered the ragu rigatoni but was extremely jealous of my friends squid ink spaghetti. The only downside, it's a small space and hard to get around if you have more than 3 people."

Hole in the wall in Tribeca, yummy
food. Specials are kind of expensive tho"
Dined on 12/14/2013
A good place to share a pizza as a
starter, then an appetizer. Add 2 main pastas and you have a winning combination. All staff are helpful and efficient. Nothing extraordinary, but always reliable."
Dined on 12/12/2013
Max's is a great little spot! The
food is amazing. Particularly the gnocchi!"
Dined on 12/11/2013
We had lunch here and it was both
very good and very nice. We sat by the window, and it was both cozy and nice. I had the Max's special panini, and it was quite yummy. My friend had the basic red sauce pasta, and she enjoyed it as well. We were not rushed and the restaurant was uncrowded, so I think it would be a nice place to have a leisurely lunch with good food and a relaxed ambiance (we had to run, but they were happy to let us sit had we wanted to)."

I've been enjoying the Rigatoni al
Ragu Napolitano for over a decade. After living out of state for several years, I was thrilled to return to find that it was everything I remembered! Perfect! :)"
Dined on 12/7/2013
Made reservation one month in
advance but ended up in the dark corner by the window. Asked for candles but got the reply they didn't have any. Freezing cold and no support when we asked for help with arranging a taxi. (Not many cars passing and it was torrential down pour). Not impressed."

very local and neighborhood
stlye,not a show place, but the food will definately be good"

Food was great. Wine perfect.
Waiter Ricardo remembers everything from my recent visits. Service exceptional. Had a great time as usual. Can't wait to go back."

I love the relaxed feel of this
place. It has an intimate, cozy vibe like a romantic hide away. I definitely would return to try more dishes. While the lasagna wasn't my favorite, my dining companion loved the eggplant dish and it did look delicious. Service was well-timed and friendly." Its a nice, affordable choice in Tribeca."

Pleasant staff, good food, nice
interiors. Overall good experience."

I have been to Max many times as
this is the place I bring my out of town guests for a "neighborhood gem." We were on time to our reservation, but had to wait 15 minutes. Another group of the same quantity showed up and were seated immediately without waiting. Wouldn't you give the open table to the group having waited the longest? Also, toward the end of our dinner, we were finishing up our bottle of wine pretty slowly and chatting. The management asked us to go to the bar to conintue drinking with a round on the house. We appreciated that extra glass of wine, but felt that we were being ushered out, while when we showed up, they did not usher out the previous group before us."

Had an excellent meal--service was
great. Very reasonable for NYC."

We shared the food: fennel salad,
pizza, pasta: all were very good. Inexpensive glasses of red wine topped off an quick neighborhood dinner. We wanted a quick, good meal after a day of traveling back to the city: a perfect choice."

Cozy little spot in TriBeCa....
Nice for a date or intimate gathering."
