We needed a late night restaurant near Riverside Church in upper Manhattan and made a reservation for 11 at Max Soha. They close at midnight and even though they were empty at the time we arrived served and thought I'd forgotten to confirm Kurt and...More

We enjoyed this little restaurant in Harlem. It was small and cute, with some really nice food options. We had homemade mushroom raviolis that were fantastic! Good service too. The spicy sauce they serve with the bread was fabulous. Tip: it's cash only. Totally recommended...More

I think Max Soha is among the best Italian restaurants in NYC (please note: Italian food in the US is not the same as in Italy). However, food is great and prices not high, but you can only pay cash (it's written everywhere). Waiting service...More

The owners are really friendly and the food is great. It is the best Italian restaurant in neighborhood and a great place for affordable pasta. Good to know: it is cash only

The setting is nice and the raggu pasta was very good. They could use more cold beverage options. The Teafreddo honestly is not something i would order again.

Great rustic eatery with cash only service. The place is small and quaint. The fettuccine was garlicky and awesome with the added chicken. Only one server during lunch so it was a little slow.

The restaurant has been around for a while, and I used to eat here quite often. Recently, I paid a visit (after a long time) and the food was as comforting as I recall. It's a cozy little Italian restaurant with a nice little menu...More
