Sat outside. Had a great fettucine Alfredo. Hot bread dipped in sauce extremely good to begin with. Very friendly Italian staff. It was early afternoon and so very quiet so service good. Toilets are inside and had to walk through restaurant. Glad we sat outside...More

This restaurant is extremely under-staffed and cramped. We never received one of our two appetizers. There were four of us for dinner. Three of us received our pasta dishes at the same time, however my son ordered pizza and didn't have it until 10 minutes...More

Have been in Maxi's for appetizers many times. Their margherita pizza is just amazing. Thin crispy crust just like in Italy.

If you go on Monday-Thursday from 3:30-6:00 all pizza is $10.00 and partnered with a white sangria you cannot beat a nice dinner. I love the pesto pizza options and the smoked salmon was good as well.

Unacceptable--Maxi's is a tiny restaurant with very few tables. When we showed up with a reservation our table was not ready and all tables were filled. We were offered a tiny table in the corner, closed off, alcove. When a restaurant takes a reservation, we...More

I ordered the Funghi Pizza which was excellent. It is made with garlic, olive oil, shredded portobello mushrooms (hence Funghi), and two types of shredded cheese (provolone and mozzarella). Located in Cleveland's Little Italy -who knew there was a Little Italy in Cleveland, a well-kept...More
