Excellent menu.
Seating exceptional as tables or booths are distanced nicely.
Service typically very good.
Location of restaurant with free parking a plus.

Celebrated New Years Day at Il Massimo and it was even better than expected (and we had high expectations). Warmly greeted at the door, received water and bread immediately, waitress was polite and offered nice suggestions on the menu, food was outstanding. Did not seem to be very busy in the dining room for the holiday but their takeout was slammed! Overall great experience.

Three friends went to dinner and we had a fantastic time at Il Massimo! What a beautiful addition to Legacy Place! The food was delicious. We shared a seafood risotto with broccoli rabe, a pasta carbonara, and a gluten free seared scallops with sweet potato risotto and brussel sprouts. The ambiance was lovely, and although it was very busy, we felt very safe and that the staff was well trained with Covid regulations. Everyone had on their mask- even the kitchen workers! I have enjoyed Il Massimo before but it was my friends first time. They raved about it, and each bought a $100 gift card on our way out to go back again. They were surprised and really pleased when, as part of a holiday promotion, they each received a bonus $20 gift card! Beautiful, wonderful, delicious restaurant--I highly recommend it .

We were there for brunch on New Year’s Day. It was relatively quiet. The service was very good. The menu had a lot of options . We shared an order of French toast which was very good. I had a lobster crepe which was good. My bf had corn-beef hash which was a little disappointing if you are expecting a crispy hash. All in all it was a nice experience

False advertising of a Special New Year's eve menu is a big problem
there was nothing special --not even sparklers or funny hats
And the wait staff was very rushed

Our meal was delicious. The service was great. Our drinks from the bar were yummy. The only thing we didn’t particularly like was the tables felt like we were in a cafeteria. We would have expected cloth table cloths to go with the cloth napkins. This could very well be due to covid 19 but the bare tables did not match the rest of the ambiance

My wife and I have never had a bad meal here. No matter how busy this restaurant is (and they are ALWAYS busy) they are always on their game. Black seabass special was the tastiest fish I have ever had and the service is always impeccable. We have been in several times at this point and Sarah the general manager always stops by to say hello. When we are not in the mood to leave the house... we order their food on grubhub. AMAZING. I tell everyone about this place!

Great food, service and ambience and felt very safe.
I have 2 complaints. One is that our reservations were for outdoor dining and that part was not open and nobody notified us. We ended up eating in doors which was fine but there was one waiter who had his mask off in a little room off the dining room near our table. That was bothersome.

Safe and quiet. Food was outstanding. Salads fresh, entree’s tasty and served hot. Portions for lunch were perfect. Had the lunch specials — $20 for 3 items.

Plus, Connor provided great table service even in the coronavirus environment.
