OMG !!! . Great Pizza! Love the wings. Staff is great. Avoid when changing the coals, it takes 45 mins. But have a drink, worth the wait.

We recently moved to Watertown square and were in search of a good pizza place. We found it at Max and Leo's in Newton. The absolute best pizza around!! The staff was friendly and welcoming and the food was great. A far cut above any other pizza nearby that we have tried. Max and Leo's is my go-to for the... More

this is without a doubt one of the best pizza options in a town with at least two more excellent pizza options (e.g., Sweet Tomatoes and Peppe's Pizza). Max and Leo have it down to a science and offer multiple creative options. The space is tight so if it is a busy weekend night you might be waiting for a... More

The sitting area is very small. Maybe 10 Barstool type seats at the bar and only to sit down tables. That being said the pizza is fantastic. Decent beer and wine offerings. They also do a Brisk business on takeout. Max and Leos is directly across the street from the Crowne Plaza if you happen to be there on business... More

Yes this place is small. We were lucky to get a seat. The honey hot habanero wings are very hot. The margarita pizza was excellent. Highly recommend this place and waiting for a seat if necessary.

Horrible experience, ordered pizza for take out . They were sending me out the door with burnt pizza and tried to tell me that it was charred (their style of pizza). Reluctantly they gave me a charred pizza

There is only one thing not to like: it's too small, and every time we go there we beg them to expand. The truth is for every time we're lucky enough to get a table, there are 3 times we don't and end up going somewhere else. And many people we know just treat it as a takeout place. And... More

Didn't know what to do for dinner and this was close to the hotel. It's primarily a take-out joint, but the had a small counter and a few tables. If you have the time eat there. the counter-staff really seem to enjoy working there and they are very nice. I can't imagine making the pizzas though, it was hoping the... More
