Overall it wasn't great. Started off great as the host stand staff was fantastic. Once we got to our table it changed. Service was slow because of only one waiter for the whole patio. The food wasn't good. Got the Sunday Gravy and the Filet. The Sunday Gravy was bland but the meatballs were ok. The Filet was awful. It was somehow burnt, undercooked, and completely unseasoned. Do not recommend.

Loved it. Had a delicious dinner with my son. From the moment I was greeted by the super friendly front desk hostesses to our lovely server Alana, the experience was amazing.
We were approached at one point by maybe a manager to check on how we were enjoying everything.
Can't wait to go back.

Food was great. Everything we had was delicious. Restaurant was very busy on Saturday night. Our dessert seemed somewhat long to arrive at the table but it was warm molten chocolate cake and was cooked perfectly so the delay was worth the wait. It was so warm and gooey as it should be. Prices are consistent with higher end Italian restaurants in our area. We will definitely go to this restaurant again.

What a gorgeous evening sitting outside at Massimo's beautiful outdoor dining areas. Great vibe. Super positive attitude from the servers, brought a big smile, even though everyone is working short-handed these days in Hospitality. All the guests got it, and appreciated how much everyone was hustling. Thank you Massimo for being open and a beautiful dinner al fresco.

Outstanding service! We had a large party and never had to wait. Food was really terrific. We expected less in a “mall” restaurant but we’re very surprised! Sat outside, very roomy. Defiantly recommend

Date Visited: July 10, 2021

Seating: Outdoor Patio
—Ergonomic: Moderate support, Rope-chairs (no padding).
—Aesthetic: Neon orange chairs/umbrellas.

Feedback:
50% of patrons in outdoor-seating are facing a mirrored building that reflects the evening sun (4 PM +) & sunset (8-9 PM).
This is bright light shines directly in their eyes as they look at the person sitting opposite them.
The reflected light is very strong: some guests will be uncomfortable, while others may find it painful.

Experience:
—Service: Outstanding.
—Food: High-quality, Delicious.
—Price: Expensive.

Additional: Duck confit is literal heaven.

This is my second time at this restaurant and it was a great experience both times. I had the bolognese and my friends had the short rib gnocchi abs polpette entree and we enjoyed them. Had the charred octopus for appetizer and tiramisu for dessert.

8 of us went to dinner to celebrate an employee. Dorothy, the restaurant Manager made our experience 5 star. She was attentive, funny and really made our dinner special.
When there was a little mixup with one of our orders, she personally made sure it was corrected and the meal was perfect. Love this place! Dorothy is amazing! So are all the waitstaff and host staff. Never disappoints.

Lighting was very dim for 5pm, cellphones were being used to read menus.
Record low temps registered for this day, yet the HVAC system was artic chilly.
Food was delicious. However, presentation for the salmon dish with black risotto left ALOT to be desired. The black plate didn’t showcase (contrast) the risotto and it just blurred together and looked like pebbles/insects under the salmon. The taste was great once you got over the appearance. Just a reminder when ordering a shellfish entree, an additional receptacle for the shells would be advisable.
Alana M, was our server and just a pleasure. Always attentive and provided good advice.
We would definitely return and recommend to family and friends.

I have always enjoyed dining at Il Masssimo. Early in my most recent visit, the power went out during a storm. This meant that the kitchen was shut down. We could only enjoy drinks and the bread that was brought to the table. So my 5 star review, in regard to food, is more for past visits. But my 5 star review of service remains solid. The wait staff was simply wonderful in keeping the many guests, including us, informed. We all hoped that the power would come back on and we would then be able to enjoy an excellent meal. Unfortunately, this was not to be. I am most sorry that the restaurant lost so much business due to an event that was beyond its control. But, again, this was handled with supreme professionalism.

The restaurant has made many positive changes to the decor since I was last there - all helping to provide a warmer, quieter, relaxed atmosphere. Service was very prompt, if not a slight bit rushed, and the food was delicious. Portions are not excessive but enough and the menu offers an enticing variety.

Waitress was upbeat and friendly. We loved sitting at the high top tables shaped like a round booth - very private. Calamari was excellent. We shared that one. Peter had the Fruiti Di Mer with quite an assortment of seafood although I’d trade off some of the calamari for more shrimp and octopus! My scallops over corn risotto was to die for! My watermelon & basil margarita was very refreshing! This was our third visit here and we will definitely be back again soon
