The food is great!
They also do cooking classes why I have not tried yet.
Never done dinner, just lunch.

Compared to the other restaurants we dined at in Positano, Max was our least favorite (see my other reviews). It had a great atmosphere as it is located in an art museum and has an outdoor garden for seating. However, we preferred to dine places with an amazing view - why not, its Positano?

The food was also just OK. It was certainly not bad but not amazing either. We started with the egglant and ricotta fritters and then each had a pasta dish. Unfortunately, I cannot even remember exactly what the dishes are because they were not that memorable. We tried the lemon cake for dessert and it was very dry (the cake at Da Vincenzo is SOOO much better).

The wine list was very extensive but overall just found this place to be over priced for what they served. I don't mind paying for great food but unfortuantely thats just not what we had there.

If we return to Positano, would probably not go back.

My wife and I spent our two week honeymoon in Venice, Rome and eventually, Positano. Ristorante Max was the best restaurant that we experienced during our entire trip. So good, in fact, we ate there both of our last two nights in Positano. The service was warm, friendly, professional and exceedingly gracious. The food was exquisite. We ordered the zucchini flowers as an appetizer and instantly fell in love with this place. Both of our meals were absolutely outstanding. Believe me, you will not find a better restaurant in Positano!!!

Brilliant meal at Max's. Food is exquisite - pasta home made and the attention to detail is fantastic. Ambience and service excellent. Can't recommend Max's highly enough.

Food was good but tables a bit crowded. Staff were helpful and wine list extensive. Good selection but average taste.
