One simple recommendation I would make is not to drown the pasta in sauce. The lasagna is a perfect example, as it comes out in a crockpot (odd), but it makes sense because there is so much sauce, if it was on a plate, it would be a blob of liquid spilling over the sides. The appetizers were good.

This is hands down our favorite local place in Tribeca. We moved out of the neighborhood but swing by last night because we were in town. The food is consistently delicious and you cannot beat the fettuccini in Max’s sauce. It’s simply the best.

I wrote a more specific review on Yelp, but cannot tell everyone enough what a joy it is to have found Max. My husband and I live in the area and went for the first time a few weeks ago... our waiter Leo was terrific, helpful and accommodating... everything ordered was fabulous.

I brought a girlfriend for dinner last weekend and she felt the same way... my husband requested I bring an order of the meatballs home for him- the meatballs are enormous and that that good.

Reservations already made for next week.. so many dining choices in the area, when you find one that on point go with it!

Looking forward to seeing you soon Max.

We live in the neighborhood and have heard great things about Max for years, but this was our first time dining here. What a local gem this place is...the food was delicious, the outdoor dining area is well done and the service is wonderful. We will be back!

Highly recommend Max’s! One of the best places in the neighborhood and not overpriced like so many of its neighbors. Most recently, our party of 8 (including 5 kids) sat outside and ordered a variety of dishes, including the leek and potato soup, the gnocchi, the bolognaise, and the fish special. They were all outstanding but my favorite was oricchiette with sausage and spicy garlic. The hostess (the sister of the owner) could not have been friendlier or more gracious (or more patient with our kids). Every time we visit we leave happy and satisfied.

Food was not as advertised; for example arrabiata sauce in lieu of vodka sauce on lobster ravioli. Food not tasty.

We went to dinner here for a birthday celebration. I called to notify the staff that we would be late due to traffic and they were so nice over the phone. We were reassured our reservation would still be honored. We ended up 15 minutes late but were greeted so nicely. We were seated and had a phenomenal experience. Friendly waitstaff who provided great service, delicious food and drink, and all things considered a very nice ambience. We will definitely add this to the list of go to’s!

I was not impressed by anything except the quaint space. Meatballs tasted burnt, soup was basically broth, Bruschetta was soggy, and the pasta tasted like I'd boiled it myself. On top of that the service was so unbelievably slow seeing as how they were not busy at all. I might give it one more chance since some of the other menu items looked good, but there are much better places in the city.

This place has exceptional food and a great atmosphere. Staff is friendly and caring throughout your stay. The overall size of the restaurant is a bit small, however, and can get just a little too loud if there are lots of people there. Don’t let that discourage you from the eating here because it’s definitely worth it!
