“One of the best pasta dishes I've had in a long time”
Review of Max`s Brasserie

Max`s Brasserie
Ranked #5 of 933 Restaurants in Southampton
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$4 - US$19
Description: Max's Bar and Brasserie is situated in the heart of Oxford Street that it is the site of Southampton's cosmopolitan. About Max's Bar & Brasserie There are many Italian or Italian style restaurants in the UK. In our mind there are two types. There's the national chain where everything is decided at head office and made to a particular price point. Then there's the authentic Italian run and owned family restaurants where food is passion and a way of life. We have nothing against the chains but we do things differently at Max's. When you visit Max's you're treated like a family member. You'll often find adjacent tables talking to each other and making friends. This isn't a marketing gimmick. It's just the Italian way. In the kitchen we have Gennaro from Napoli in the Campania region of Italy. Between them they have more than 30yrs experience in the kitchen. Everything on the menu is created with I don't forget to try the world famous Balsamic G&T ,,,

I had chicken cacciatore, which was exquisite - full of flavours and succulent chicken. Lip smacking goodness!

Great Italian restaurant! Been there a couple of times. Always ordered different things. Never been disappointed.
Risotto with mushroom and truffle superb! Lamb of rack tasty and meat very tender. Last time had Tuna carpaccio and swordfish. Scallops cooked to perfection. Whatever you order you can't go wrong.
Cherry on top Max, a great host!
Booking recommended.

On a sunny afternoon in Southampton we visited Max's for Lunch we were seated outside and ordered a lovely bottle of crisp white wine. I ordered the scallops which were beautifully cooked and tasted amazing, my husband had the pate which was also very tasty. We both had a chilled glass of champagne and followed this by roast cod which was light and tasty and perfect. Max and his wife are very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome and we look forward to returning soon
