If you are looking for a great dining experience where the chef/owner is actually in the kitchen and comes out to chat with his guests.....This is it....And the wine list is outstanding
10 th time there in 10 years. We come to play golf from out of state and always go to Massimo’s
We reserve eating at Massimo's for special occasions. We have been here multiple times and have NEVER been disappointed by anything. The staff are knowledgeable, courteous, and prompt. There was a member of our party who had dietary issues and Massimo himself, who is the chef, came out and talked to us. The food was melt in your mouth delicious. The portions were huge. Everything was what you expect for eclectic fine dining. We will be returning and I highly recommend Massimo's!
Excellent food and service as always

Have been here several times and I highly recommend! Great service and outstanding food!
Fabulous dining experience. Our new favorite place. Thank you chef and staff for a wonderful, satisfying and relaxing evening. We will be back!
We ate outside. Seafood risotto was amazing, as usual. Our gold standard for all risotto worldwide. His award winning Duck and Brie is our go to appetizer. We love his excellent wait staff! They make us feel like family.
Magnifique! Everything about Massimo's- from the service (Bertrand was our incredible server...I'm sure I'm mispelling his name) to the food was absolutely outstanding! For starters, I enjoyed a perfect Dirty Martini, then we had the lobster & crab cake as an appetizer- so fresh and delicious. Moved onto THE BEST lobster bisque we've ever had onto an absolutely spot-on seafood risotto. My S.O. had the peppercorn crusted NY Strip with mashed potatoes and roasted veggies which he thoroughly enjoyed. The only "okay" item we had was the dessert which was a black cherry crème Brule. Very good...but not something I would get again. Then to top off the evening, the chef came out to personally ask how everything was. We have not had a fine dining experience like this in the Tampa Bay area, and are both looking forward to our next visit!
Our service by Bertrand was impeccable and our meals were excellent. Very fresh ingredients prepared to perfection
This was our first time at Massimo's and it was EXCELLENT!! Service and food was outstanding and the wine was awesome! Will definitely be back!
Best restaurant in Northern Pinellas County!
I've dined at Massimo's many times. The food is consistently very good. There is always an interesting wine choice on the menu. This time my friends and I split the Maple Leaf Duck and Brie appetizer. It was fantastic. I'll go back just to have that again.
The pasta is excellent as are the veal dishes. There are nightly specials, often excellent fish options. Oh and the risotto. Amazing. Highly recommend this restaurant.
The food and service are always excellent!
Food was truly delicious! We loved the mushroom pappardelle pasta dish. Wow! So so good. And the Veal Massimo is amazing. Truly a wonderful meal for people that appreciate fine food!
We've been going to Massimo's since it first opened in Palm Harbor. The food is incredible and the wait staff are spot on and professional. We've been to a number of the "special" wine dinners which are usually on a Thursday evening. I've never ever had a bad anything here. Menus are creative and so delicious. I would go once a week if I could. Don't miss out on this neighborhood gem.
A fine restaurant for a special occasion. Exquisite food, presentation and service.
We had a great experience and delicious meals at Massimo's. First time dining there.
Went there for my 40th birthday dinner, it was our first time visiting. Food was amazing! Service and atmosphere were just right. We will definitely be back.
Food is always very good here. A visit from Chef Massimo is always nice at the conclusion of the meal.
Such and exceptional restaurant and the food is superb! The chef is always in kitchen, and always comes out to see each table! The perfect place for a special occasion!
Excellent pasta dishes, great wine list and cozy atmosphere. Owner/ chef makes his rounds to make sure every customer is satisfied. His timing is impeccable😘👌
Massimo's continues to deliver beautiful and delicious plates. The dish's flavors are well balanced consistently. Service was impeccable giving wine pairing suggestion that makes a lot of sense. I love this place!
This restaurant has been here for a long time. It is always so good in many ways. Food is excellent (never gets old) great service and classy atmosphere. Love this place!
Amazing food as usual and Bertrand, our server, managed to enhance our lovely experience even more!
Very nice, everything was fabulous
This is such a wonderful restaurant.
We love the food and drinks and the service is amazing! It's our favorite place to done.
Food very fresh and delicious as always! Service outstanding
This place has been where my husband and I celebrate every romantic occasion.
Always amazing food and top notch service.
Great food and an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere.
There was a bit of a musty odor, probably due to the combination of indoor fountains and a carpeted floor. Waitress interrupted us too frequently. However, food was excellent so we will be back.
Definitely worth the price! Massimo's is a very nice, elegant restaurant with amazing food! Our server, Jennifer, could not have been more attentive! I highly recommend this place!
Absolutely the worst chicken piccata I have ever tasted!
No flavor, no sauce and boring.
Chef Massimo is consistent with his preparations. We have never, once, had a bad meal. The staff is lovely and attentive. We highly recommend him.
Great wine list and the pear martinis were excellent. Started with the calamari and were disappointed. They were a bit chewy and the sauce was overpowering. We next had the wilted spinach salad with goat cheese and duck. This was my favorite dish of the night, excellent. My wife had the pork belly and raviolis. Pork was a bit tough but the raviolis were tender and tasty. I had the veal Massimo. Veal was tender and the mushrooms and sauce went perfectly. We split the tiramisu for dessert. Outstanding. The service through the evening was also excellent. Will be going back.
We always love going to see Massimo and experience his amazing cooking.
Third annual Birthday celebration dinner in honor of my life partner. Massimo did an outstanding job as usual. I highly recommend this restaurant .
