Maxi’s Bistro is another of those cozy, romantic little Italian spots that dot Little Italy. It’s a friendly, casual spot to stop in for an Italian lunch — pizza, cavatelli with meatballs, ravioli, Italian sausage and peppers. Dinner increases the size of the pizzas and adds a list of you-know-them/you-love-them entrees like fettuccine alfredo and chicken marsala. The cocktail list makes this a tempting place to stop in for happy hour or, on Fridays and Saturdays, a late night drink until 2am.
