Maxim's Pizza, An Eastside Tradition
For over now 70 years Maxim's Pizza and Catering has been serving Cleveland's eastside neighborhoods.
First established in 1949 by patriarch Manny Berardinelli, Collinwood '39, at the southwest corner of
East 185th and Cornwall Road, their store would later move out to Mentor on Lake Shore Boulevard in
2004. In 2014 Manny decided to take an early retirement at 93, and is now under the watchful eye of
his son Tom. That same year daughter Loretta, son Gene, and daughter-in-law Kathy would open and
continue at their current location in the plaza off Heisley Road north of Mentor Avenue.
There you'll find a large selection for lunch and dinner options, as well as the normal Pizza & sub fare.
