Max Soha Restaurant Review

: A long dark wood bar graces half of this cozy and casual Upper West Side Italian eatery, but the patrons---a mix of locals and the curious---aren’t here to drink. They’re here to enjoy the hearty pasta dishes like lasagna “mom’s style,” filled with meat, fresh tomatoes and creamy melted cheese; the spaghetti alle vongole: spaghetti with clams and broccoli rabe; and the fusilli with wild boar, mushrooms and Brunello wine. Main courses include grilled salmon with a side of mashed potatoes; grilled organic sirloin steak with roasted potatoes; and a sautéed chicken cutlet with mushrooms and Marsala wine, served with tender roasted potatoes.
