This is a great neighborhood place. Lots of families eating here. The pasta is fresh and the dishes are very tasty. The new location is more spacious and easier to navigate.

This was by far the worst restaurant experience ever. The food was terrible, I have never been to Olive Garden but I am sure they would do a better job, one side was so salted I could not eat it and they didn't even had the decency to deduct the charge. The cuisine was so bad! Salads were depressing and main courses microwaved. Cherry on top the waited told us they had another reservation for the table while we were still having the main course. Truly a disappointment and a NO on every aspect. Poor service and embarrassing quality.

Cozy place, way over-sauced pasta. We were rushed through our meal—which at least means it’s popular.

Went from a recommendation of Heather McMahan. And she did not disappoint. This was phenomenal. My mother and I split several dishes because we just couldn't decide what we wanted the most! Everything was delicious, I've already recommended to 3 people in the past 48 hours. The restaurant was pretty quiet for how many people were there. The service was attentive but not overbearing. And the wine was AMAZING. Pricey but well worth your cash.

We brought our teens to NYC for their birthdays and had an amazing dinner at Max! The staff was lovely and warm, the food was to die for and it’s in the most charming space! It will definitely go in my list of favorites!

Inside was too noisy with big groups and unfortunately there was so much construction going on outside it was hard to talk which was not the restaurant's fault.

The new space is not as nice and cozy as the old one. It just doesn’t feel the same and while the food was good the experience wasn’t special in any way. So not sure I’d go back given the options in the city for really great Italian. The lasagna was really good but the fennel salad was nothing like I remembered it. Not nearly as good.

A gem in Tribeca. Despite there being a ton of Italian restaurants in NYC, it's hard to find really good Italian. Max's is REALLY good Italian. Delicious food, great ambiance, lovely service. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I dined outside. We split an arugula salad and a pasta dish and both were absolutely delicious. We would love to return next time we're in NYC.

Great food, nice atmosphere. We were a party of 8 and they rushed us through dinner a bit due to "another large party coming in after us". Otherwise a nice place for Italian food in Tribeca!

Was running late and wanted to add 2 people. Their response: “we’ll make it work!” Felt like you were eating with family. Great Italian comfort food. Limited bar and wine list but fine. Great neighborhood vibe with friendly staff. Check it out!
