Great for dinner before a night of entertainment at the Lesher Theater. They are very helpful in making sure you make your performance on time.

I agree with the previous reviewer; our family of five had play tickets and the server helped us get out the door with plenty of time to spare! She was very nice with our kids, and the food was wonderful. My husband and I also enjoy the bar there on other occasions!

Best mother's day ever
Had great dinner on Mother's day. Usually the brunchy food leaves so much to be desired. This was perfect. We had 5 in our dinner party and everyone had something different and everyone raved about the taste, presentation, and quality. They were very accomadating, the staff very helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Very hard to please my gourmet friend, 96 year old mother and pickey daughter. It was wonderful not to cook but more than that the food was wonderful. Husband did not even compain about the bill.

Our first date was at Massimo's over four years ago. It was our second anniversary so I decided to go back to where it all began. Weeknights there are great as it is quiet and you get personalized service. The food came out so good and the bread is always filling and hot. We appreciated the surprise molten chocolate dessert! Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Theatre Night Begins with Massimo'
If you are attending the W.C. Lesher Theater. I strongly suggest that you have dinner at Massimo first. The food the ambiance and the noise level are all a great preparation for enjoying a theater performance. The menu is eclectic and the wine list superb and . the servers are exceptionally cordial and helpful. The appetizer selections are classic . I strongly suggest the Carpcrcio and Calamari Fritti are very good , the salads are crisp and flavorful and large enough to be shared., the entrees are fresh and varied. I particularly liked the Wild Boar Risotto. The desserts and port selections are rich and varied. All of them are very good unless you're watching your weight.

Special service and good food
I recently met a group of old friends here for dinner. Our server knew we had a lot to catch up on and was very accommodating, yet responsive. Good food, great conversation, a delightful dining experience overall.

Uniquely charming setting in downtown Walnut Creek, Massimos offered a quiet dining experience made easy by exceptional and attentive wait staff. We started with prawn cocktail which was quite filing. My entree was veal which was ok. My Pop had salmon which was quite tasty. The bar was open and drinks were ordered. Downtown parking is easy before five in the afternoon, otherwise valet is available after five o'clock.

an old favorite scores high again.
We have dined here a number of times and are never disappointed. The atmosphere is refined and romantic with live piano music. Service is always spot on, courteous, knowledgeable and efficient, this time provided by Terry. Our entrees (Peking duck breast and leg confit, and the Prawns Putanesca) were excellent. We also had a tasty jumbo prawn cocktail appetizer. There is a creative specialty cocktail list and an extensive wine list with about 30 wines by the glass. Nothing was lacking on this visit and we are already looking forward to the next one.

Massimo never disappoints
My wife and I paid another visit to this terrific restaurant with a friend visting from out of state. As always, the food was great, the service enthusiastic and friendly. I had the Linguine Massimo, one of my favorite dishes. If you like Italian food (who doesn't?) you will love this place.

Classy -Wonderful Cuisine & Service
We had a great dining experience "again" at Massimo Ristorante. Max knows how to treat his customers.
The food is wonderful and the service is gracious and the experience is dining - not eating.

Our table had the pork chop, calamari and steak and all of my companions gave rave reviews. I had been looking for a good calamari appetizer and theirs won. And the panna cotta is a must espcially with extra raspbery sauce. The piano music added to the event. Everything was topped off with the excellent wait staff. My friend from Miami was quite impressed

There was as mix up with the bill which wasn't noticed until after we had left. We were charged full price for the wine which was supposed to be half price for the month of August.
Max, the manager, was very understanding and apologetic about it and immediately took steps to give us a refund.
All around a very good dinner.

I don't know why I had not explored this restaurant before, as we visit this area often and always dine out. I am glad we discovered Mossimo. Nice atmosphere, very good food and attentive service.

Great street scene venue
We really enjoyed sitting on the street side, outdoors. Food and wine were both great although the variety offered was short.

The food and the service were top notch and the outside seating was delightful. A good time was had by our whole party!

Love this restaurant
This is truly an amazing restaurant, that is why it has been in business for 35 years. If you have not been yet you are missing out. The food is always perfect in taste and presentation, we have never been disappointed. We have many favorites but here is two I would suggest, RISOTTO DEL CINGHIALE which is a Creamy Mushroom Risotto and Wild Boar Ragu and LINGUINI MASSIMO, Manila Clams, P.E.I. Mussels, Jumbo Prawns, Pancetta, Chorizo, Garlic, Cream. The service equally is fantastic.

We had a very nice meal. The mussels were awesome! We shared a Caesar Salad and it was plenty for two. I would have liked a little more dressing but I think there was plenty for most. The stuffed pork shined above the veal piccata; however the veal was tender and the sauce was very good. The waiter attended to our needs but was not intrusive. All in all, Massimo's was a great choice for a tasty meal.

We were greeted by Max, the owner, and promptly seated at a nice booth for this special night for our friend. The food was absolutely delicious. LeeAnn was delightful as our server. A great Sunday night excursion.

Have been to the restaurant
Have been to the restaurant multiple times and have always enjoyed the food. At times it is noisy but not too bad this time. Love their wine selection but a bit steep in price.
10/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved the veal scaloppini, and the pork chop, but at the end of the meal the regular, and cappuccino coffees were disappointing. The coffee should be commensurate with the great quality of the entree.

Haven't been back to Massimo
Haven't been back to Massimo for a few years but remember them from several restaurant walk samplings. Service was excellent.Split the bruchetta and an order of mussels for a first course andf they were excellent. We ordered the spegetti and meatballs.(In the mood for comfort food) as an entre and it was spot on!. Enjoyed the meal and will return again.
