Lobster ravioli, veal, and fettuccini with meat balls were all very good. The white sangria was awesome. Although, no salad included with meals. The bread was ok.

Stopped in on the recommendation of two Cleveland Policemen and was impressed with the food, drinks and service. The prosciutto appetizer and tomato and caper salad were fantastic - fresh and flavorful.

We've eaten here on occasion. Food was okay but not worth talking about with my grandmother in Bari, Italy. After 10 days in Italy and home cooking, we thought we'd relive a bit of home with a pizza. Delivered to our table was a thick, pre-baked shell, soggy and lukewarm, covered with a brush of unseasoned canned tomato sauce, a... More

The pasta dishes, rich healthy portions will satisfy your craving for home cooking embellished with professional flare. The ambiance of the restaurant is perfect for date night or meeting the parents for the first time.

Had a very good meal at Maxi's tonight. The calamari (at happy hour prices) was outstanding. I had linguini and clams, girlfriend had spinach ravioli, both were very good, particularly the sauce with the ravioli. We both had a glass of an excellent barbera. Recommended.
