Authentic Italian Cuisine
Super cute, inexpensive, large portions & not too busy on a Fri. night. What's not to like? The truffle ravioli was delish & gelato could feed 4. I'll def be back to try some other tasty menu items!
Really great homemade Italian made with a lot of love and attention to detail. I imagine this is the same Max of the east village that won my heart the 1st time. Walk don't run.
Bug in water. Seated us then moved us because he made a mistake. Table was for an 8pm reservation. Not too long after he seated another couple (white) at said table which was before 8pm. Never again
Tried & True- the lasagna, the lamb ragu and the fettucine, can't go at this place! Their location in the east village has an enclosed outdoor patio in the back. Lovely!
My husband order the chicken and salad taste good but faild on execution was not presentable looked like a big plate of salad and had to dig at bottom for chicken
Lots of better and just as well-priced Italian in TriBeCa - every dish was massive and a mess on the plate. Specials were ill-conceived and actually, kind of disgusting.
Warm, charming little restaurant with delicious freshly-made pasta at surprisingly affordable prices. The Lamb Ragù was exceptional!
First time: black spagetti was to die for! Creamed spinach was also good. I have my eyes on the pizzas next time! Def coming back.
Orderd the ricotta chees and spinach ravioli in truffle cream sauce to die for !!!! A lil heavy on truffle oil but still delicious.
We just wandered in here one Friday evening and were surprised how amazing it is! The ravioli dishes were fantastic! Sit upstairs!
Rudest hostess I've ever had. Told us "I did you a favor" by letting us eat here even though we had a reservation. Never had a worse hosting experience. Never coming back. It's a shame.
Try the black squid ink pasta with seafood. Perfect on a cold winter day. The calamari is also great. Good value.
It’s a small place with a cozy feel to it and also serves the best pasta ala sugo I think for cheap. -Ed Cotton, Top Chef
Usually not too crowded, great staff, quick food and slightly innovative twist on the dishes (like black squid ink noodles)
Great little place and good value. I had total food envy over the Lasagne despite my meatballs being awesome.
The Sugo toscano is a must...as is the caprese!!! One of my favorite italian places..will not disappoint.
Pretty typical NYC Italian faire. Food and service are both fine. You can find better at the same price.
Amazing atmosphere, perfect food. Prosciutto with mozzarella was amazing with the lasagna....mmmmmm
The pizza is amazing! Add the Truffle Fries as a side to make it even better!
Charming Italian place that's both inexpensive and delicious. Recommend the gnocchi and ravioli.
The rigatoni al ragù napoletano is flavorful and hearty, but feel free to skip the underwhelming caprese.
Nice little find. Good, hearty Italian grub. Go for the lamb ragout, very tasty.
Haven't had better Italian food anywhere else in NYC. Everything on their menu is delish.
Don't order the chicken pate appetizer. They spread it on too thick. It's not. PB & J -- it's pâté!
Village Voice is excited to have Max at the 2012 ChoiceEats food fest! Full list of restaurants here:
Delicious, underrated cozy place. Get the pasta with the house sauce.
Best homemade spaghettini I've ever had. Delicious lamb ragu.
Big portion sizes. Decent prices. Try the rigatoni with eggplant.
Solid Italian food. Nice decor. A bargain in the neighborhood.
The new pizzas are excellent. Try the Tartufata!
Amazing food. Love the bolognese and the eggplant.
If it's a special, get the fettucine with duck ragu.
All the pasta is great. I highly recommend the gnocchi.
I LOVE their gnocchi. So fresh and so soft. Like little pillows in my mouth.
Affordable gem in Tribeca. It is all good!
The dish with truffle oil is out of this world.
Really good italian food. Sucks cause cards only accepted over $15
The rigatoni alla Siciliana tastes like heaven
Get the fetuccini with max meat sauce, best dish!
New tip: get the lamb ragu. 👍
Fettucini with meat sauce = by far best dish on the menu!
Definitely recommend this place! Fettuccine is to die for.
Fresh pastas. The Lamb Ragu is divine.
Pizza is the best, and the meatloaf!!!
Amazing pasta! So cheap. Why haven't I moved in here already?
Horrible service. Understaffed, so the guy was running around frantic. Bleh.
Try their homemade fresh pasta!
Amazing crostini with pate on it!
order the lobster ravioli.best i've ever had!!
