Great experience. Set a reservation for my mothers birthday. I had asked for a round booth and when we arrived one was ready for us right away. They also put down a happy birthday sign on our table and we’re extremely kind to my mom. The food was delicious and are waitress was fantastic. Would highly recommend Il Massimo to anybody I know.

The meatballs were good as an appetizer and the bolognese is good as well. The service from the door beyond was great. Keith was my server, and he was just great. I am glad I went. It was a bucket list visit.

Made reservations for a birthday, dressed up and planned on a nice dinner. Was seated in high traffic area at a table instead of one of the cozy booths they have. Thought they were saving for larger parties but noticed they sat parties of 2 in the large booths after we were seated. We would have had more wine and dessert but left because uncomfortable.

It was a wonderful evening with a superb waitress, named Gabrielle from Mexico. She was attentive and fun for a group of friends(women) who haven't had a meal together in a restaurant since forever. The food was excellent and being able to dine outside was perfect. One of my favorite restaurants in the area and I will return! From this Italian, it was "favlosa!" (fabulous)

Chose Il Massimo for a small birthday gathering. The hostess and our waiter were wonderful. The hostess accommodated our request for a booth on a very busy Saturday evening which was nice. The drinks were very good however the food was average. Some of the dishes were cold like they were sitting for a while. While the waiter was very nice and accommodating, the waitstaff did not clear our dishes between courses so we had to move our dishes to one side of the table to make way for the new courses (thinking it might give them a hint). I might try the restaurant again on a not so busy night to see if my review changes but it I won’t be in any rush to do so.

Our server was very nice, helpful and accommodating. However someone else would bring the food out from the kitchen and just plop the dishes on the table without regard to the empty/dirty plates already in front of us. It happened twice between app &salad & entree.

Would never come back, although our waitress was very nice and professional. Food was bland and had no taste. Not a single person enjoyed their food and we all tried different things on the menu. Drinks had NO alcohol and tasted like watered down juice. Very disappointing as we were celebrating a birthday and everyone left hungry.

Everything was fine, ranging from very good to excellent, with a couple exceptions. We were a large group and we had a pleasant, efficient server. Some of us thought their meals were exceptional. A couple others, ho hum. My prosecco wasn't very cold, but my chicken dish was excellent. My husband preferred the mussels appetizer and lobster ravioli he got a couple weeks ago at another restaurant. People raved about delicious artichokes and wonderful burrata (sp?) ravioli as well as some other meals. I liked the bread and olive/dipping oil they brought quite a bit.

Hearty plates/bowls of fresh, high-quality food for the price.

Our host, Keith was amazing and gracious. Great smile and hospitable.

The ambience and environment is clean, welcoming and somewhat exclusive (loved it)

We sat in a booth, which was too high and not enough room for tall people.

Other than that, I recommend this place.

The food and drinks have been consistently excellent. Our waiter was terrific - very attentive and helpful. My spouse and I went for drinks, appetizers, entrees & dessert. The issue arose when we tried to use a $25.00 dining reward from Open Table to pay for part of the bill. The manager told us that she was unable to process the Open Table reward, and that even though the restaurant had been listed as actively participating in Open Table, she could not do anything more to clarify or help us. We explained that we use Open Table frequently, were surprised to learn they would not honor the reward, and that this reflected poorly on the restaurant. When the manager smugly replied that the restaurant would come out looking fine, we added that of all the restaurants available to us, we chose Il Massimo to accumulate and spend our points (plus an additional $150 of our own!). Without skipping a beat the manager said, "I'd rather you not choose us." When my spouse, out of shock, asked to be sure of what she just said, she quickly grabbed our check, credit card and reward and said "I'll take $25.00 off the bill." Great place to dine, management is out of their depth.

Enjoyed the ravioli entree + the garlic bread w/olives + EVO, along w/a nice glass of rose - the only one on the wine list.
We sat outside within the smaller section and noise level was high. Was thankful when a few tables cleared out w/kids then my friend and I were able to hear each other.
Bday celebration and wait staff added some sparkle stars on the table and a standup note w/Bday wishes - very nice touch and very much appreciated.
I've been to Il Massimo a few times and really enjoy sitting at the bar~
