The food is always fabulous! The lunch wraps are unique and flavourful. Kind of like a warm hug for the tastebuds. Their wood fired pizzas are a favourite go to dinner for us. Dinner is always divine! Especially their Monday night Ethnic Night specials. We love going to Max & Irma's and bringing the family. The atmosphere is warm and... More

We had a Thai platter that was absolutely delicious. Great service and happy kitchen. The atmosphere is warm and the wood oven makes for great pizza.

They work hard to make diners feel well looked after--from tastes of wine before deciding to frequent check backs to be sure everything is ok. It's clear their hearts are in this place. Ingredients are top notch and dishes sound good. However the taste test is not so great. Oily way-overcooked lasagna and a meat loaf special that had too... More

On our first visit the pizza was delicious and since we were sitting outside the ambience was lovely. On our recent visit we were sat in the backroom which had zero ambience. Unfortunately the meals, mostly wraps, were mediocre at best.

Stopped by chance, liked the awning. Inside the service was very good, yummy pizza's, nice ambiance with live music, not overpowering in the small space. Would definitely go here again.

Daily specials plus a good assortment on the menu of flavourful dishes to accommodate any pallet. Generally get there before noon or reserve as they are indeed busy. Fast and efficient service and nice food servers. Some spirits are available to those who desire.

Stopped in for lunch with my son on a weekday. It was pretty quiet when we arrived and ordered our food, which came quickly. While we were enjoying our lovely meal, the place filled up quite a bit, and it became quite difficult to get the one waitress's attention. When we were ready to go it took awhile to pay... More

Love this place if we've got the time. Great sized portions and very good pizza, shame about the staffing, they are lovely just not enough of them!
