Maximo's was a great little Italian restaurant in NO; however, I have to report that it closed several months ago. Not sure why. The food was always good and reservations were needed during the busy hours each eveing.

Walked a significant distance to get to this resturant after checking out its previous reviews only to find it closed...lights off and no notification of closure on door. Tried calling but only got answering machine. Tried to make a reservation prior to and after arriving....got error message on website.

Out hotel concierge recommended this place for Christmas Eve dinner. We couldn't have loved it more! We had a delicious meal - Osso Buco was amazing, as was the filet! The waitstaff was friendly and helpful too! We would definitely go back!

First off its a nice looking place with a very good staff and atmosphere and great food. Started with the shrimp then had the crawfish fra diavolo then finished with the osso buco. All where wonderful and not to be missed. Good wine selection.

We were targeting a different restaurant, however the wait to get in was way too long. Just next door was Maximo's and there was no wait! The ambience, service & food were spectacular.
