Diner Reviews
  • "Specials are always fabulous - usually a prawn or Halibut dish. Wine list is full range. Romantic booths, nice atmosphere for business lunches, and bar area has candle light dining with booths. One of my favorite places."

  • "Husband and I came here week before Christmas with a friend and it was OUTSTANDING. This time however, the top sirloin in the Steak au Poivre was grisly and therefore a disappointment. The remainder of the meal was as glorious as before. This time (as we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary) we splurged and ordered the Massimo's Mud Pie.....the absolute BEST I've ever had. Service both times was warm and welcoming. Clearly, this restaurant has its 'long time regulars' as the owner/manager(?) was quite effusive toward a table of 4 that were from Boston and Livermore. Nice to see that kind of recognition stills occurs. We will be back."

  • "This was our first visit to Massimo's and we were seated by a gracious hostess and our waiter was to be David. David came and introduced himself, offered menus, water, and suggestions for the Specials that night. We ordered wine from a varied list of both reds and whites. We both ordered one of the Specials for the night and it certainly did not disappoint. The wife's seafood pasta was perfect. My crusted halibut was as tender and flavorful as can be. We had desserts that were lick the plate clean, of one Tiramisu and one Berries with cream. David was ready for us at a moment's notice. We were watching the other patrons as well, and they all got the same wonderful, special treatment as we did. Are we going to return, you bet."

  • "I have been going to Massimo's for 25+ years. I have celebrated practically every major event here - birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, Valentine's Day, etc., and I always enjoy the food and the service. Massimo's is a place from a by-gone era - where great food is served by attentive waiters in a classy, peaceful setting. I love this place and will continue to celebrate my life's milestones with a wonderful meal at Massimo's!"

  • "We ate at Massimo's for Valentine's Day dinner. There was a special prefixe menu. My husband and I had the filet and lobster tail. The filet was melt-in-your-mouth tender. The lobster was lacking in flavor making me wish that I had ordered the filet alone so that I would have had a larger piece. I had the house salad which was excellent and my husband had the crab cake appetizer which he thought was very good. The dessert was crème brulee and chocolate cake, both of which were excellent. Chocolate cake is often dry but this was moist and very chocolaty. All in all the meal was super!"

  • "Fantastic fresh just baked crisp outside, sponge inside! The rest of the meal was good, too, but the bread was tops."

  • "We had a pre-Valentines dinner with neighborhood friends. Appetizers were just okay.. Caesar salad made table side was yummy and steak and lobster was cooked perfect! Service was excellent, glasses kept full, courses brought out in a timely manner with out a feeling of being rushed. I have a broken arm so they cut up my steak in the kitchen!. Very thoughtful! Thanks for a nice meal and fun with friends. Will definitely be back soon."

  • "Service, quality, and consistency are what make Massimo's the only fine restaurant in Fremont. I do all my business entertaining here and have never been disappointed. The attention to detail is outstanding. The food (& sauces) are always excellent. Rigotoni ala Massimo's is unique and outstanding. Professional service - dedicated staff - owner operated (and present) makes this restaurant the top destination for fine dining in Fremont."

  • "This is the better Italian restaurant in Fremont. When you entered the doors you are immediately treated like family even if it's your first time there. Everything on the menu is prepared very well. The waiters are exceptional & the dessert list is really good. I recommend their Massimo Mudd Pie. Wonderful place for a great meal & reasonable prices."

  • "We were sat in a back room that was banquet-looking. The service was rushed and impersonal. It was obvious they were more interested in turning tables than the guests sitting there to dine. This is a first for me at this restaurant, and I hope it is the last since I love to dine at Massimo's."

  • "This is our first time to the restaurant. The restaurant has several doors as you walk in to the place, so it is difficult to find out where the main desk is placed. However, this shouldn't be a reason to fault the rating. It would take a major remodel to change the way the restaurant is set up and I liked the separate bar from the eating area. The most important part of the rating is the food and the service. We thought the food and the service were amazing. We will be back!"

  • "I went to Massimo's about 13 years ago (first time) and had Steak Diane (also first time) which was fabulous. The next (second) visit was roughly 7 years ago and the entire experience was unpleasant (food, wait staff, etc.). I was not going to ever try again. However, when I won a contest at work and received a gift card --- well, it was $50.00 off. So, my husband, dear friend, and myself ventured to Massimo's last Friday. SUPERB experience! This was the first time in 58 years of existence that a restaurant actually served me steak as I ordered (medium well). The staff were ALL delightful, the food was incomparable, and the noise level was what I'd expect from a linen tablecloth restaurant (excellent). I will definitely be back."

  • "We had a very nice New Year's Eve dinner. We were seated at an isolated room of the restaurant which while not the sole table provided a bit of privacy. The food was excellent. I had lamb chops and my partner had a filet mignon which she was extremely pleased with. The service was excellent and they tended to our every want quickly and efficiently."

Oysters (large!!!) for appetizer was perfect. This is one of the nicest restaurants in town. Menu has a variety to choose from - Always Good!! Been coming here for years."

  • "Probably the best restaurant in Fremont. We have been going here for close to 40 years, and have never had a bad meal. Service is not always the best, but you always get the sense everyone is trying hard. Even when crowed as this lunch was, the noise level was tolerable. Get a booth if you can. Very comfortable and relaxing. I would highly recommend Massimo's for a casual meal, or a special occasion."

  • "Every time we have dinner at Massimo's, we always enjoy it. We love the atmosphere there, except this time there were a group of people dining next to us and it was kind of noisy. We noticed that when there's big group of guests, the service quality sure went down some. Even though, we still love the food there very much."

  • "We love the food and the owners are Massimo's. I haven't had an item that I didn't like. The waiters are very knowledgable and friendly. They are ready to seat you when you arrive with your rsvp. No wait - no shuffle to the bar to get you to buy more and then seat you. We have been coming to Masimo's for 26+ years and celebrate special occasions with them. You should give it a try - you won't be disappointed!"
