One of the best locations in Cleveland, "Little Italy". High wine prices and high school cafeteria pizza. The escarole was very good. Very disappointed with the wine list at their prices of wine. Plenty of other places to go in LI.

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.
