Bistro
Nestled in the heart of Cleveland’s Historic Little Italy, Maxi’s embodies a vibrant atmosphere and a welcoming ambiance. We are open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.

Our main level offers guests the opportunity to interact in a casual and upbeat setting or to partake in the dynamic liveliness of the bar. The cozy and intimate upstairs level seats 50 people comfortably and can be booked for events such as meetings, rehearsal dinners, birthdays, graduations, presentations and more. Our fully enclosed and heated garden patio provides a relaxed and comfortable dining experience while the sidewalk tables allow for a most spectacular view of Little Italy.

Whether you are looking for a place to dine before going to The Cleveland Orchestra concert or searching for the perfect location to share a conversation, Maxi’s welcomes you to enjoy dinner, an appetizer, a glass of wine at the bar, a Peroni while the game is going on, or even an espresso with a San Pellegrino for a caffeine push.

    We were a table of 4, and had never been there before. Tom Merlini, told me to go here, that’s what we did. We were all very happy with our meals. That was the best fettuccine alfredo that i’ve ever eaten. Good service, amazing food.

    Terrific food and service! We had the bruschetta rustica, penne and meatballs, shrimp pasta and mesclun salad, with all dishes being well-flavored and excellent. Our server was prompt, friendly and attentive. This is a lovely little historic restaurant. One of the very best in Little Italy!

    The meal was wonderful, and the food came out quickly. The lobster Penne was an off menu special that they had and the lobster was amazing.

    We ordered a calamari appetizer which was ok. Not outstanding. 20 seconds later the main courses appeared. The arugula salad was unremarkable, topped with a tough, overcooked piece of chicken. The pasta dish with calamari was just the appetizer with pasta.
