I made a reservation but still had to wait like 15-20min. Also, when I asked them for an update, the person at the front desk wasn’t really nice and polite. The food was great tho.

This is a great spot and I highly recommend it. The food is delicious, the service was terrific. It's a bit pricey, but every mouthful was delicious. One small complaint... I was so looking forward to eating my leftowvers but when I opened the box I saw they didn't pack half of it. The bread is also disappointing. Overall an excellent experience and we'll definitely be back. Great spot.

Really fun and festive spot for a small Thanksgiving meal with my father and partner. We enjoyed all our courses including a small substitution for me. Fantastic staff and nice atmosphere. We were very comfortable and dudnt Feel pressured to leave.

Went for thanksgiving and it was just… ok. Food was disappointing. Tomato soup was good. The stuffing was just all mush, just awful and the Turkey was dry. We ordered an extra app on top of the prix fixe meal, but our waitress completely forgot it, which we weren’t too upset about. It was thanksgiving and it was very busy, so there really was no reason to be upset. Besides that, our waitress was great.
Honestly, the cheap tiny rolls we got when we sat down, said it all… gave us an idea what to expect. What a bummer! I really wanted to love the place.
Decor was definitely right up my ally, although the place could use jacket holders or hooks by the tables or something. We were in a tiny booth (I am very petite, and I thought it was tight for me to sit with my coat).

We went as a group of seven. Not sure why we were seated in a both and when asked if we could be put at a table, we were told no tables were available. The food was ok but not great. I wanted a Super Tuscan and had to get a cabinet because there wasn't a Super Tuscan by the glass. Our server was friendly and attentive.

Food was great. Service was pretty good. My only complaint was the dyson hand blower in the bathroom. It is only a hygienic hand blower if it is cleaned. It literally looked like a dryer vent. Disgusting. People who don’t wash their hands well baseline and that blowing grime abs germs straight out. I said something to them and I hope they actually clean it. Sickening.

Great food and service - getting both is hard to find in our labor short world these days. We asked for fast service because we had movie tickets. They served us two cocktails. an App and two entrees in under 20 mins. The food was excellent.

It's been a while since we've been out to eat. Celebrating my wife's birthday. Food was fabulous and did not feel over crowded inside. Service was top notch and hats off to the bartender, my cocktail was perfectly made! So glad I took Friday off.

My first time as II Massimo's and I was very impressed. Six of us came to celebrate a girlfriends birthday and we sat in a very comfy round booth and the table was decorated to make it festive.....a nice surprise! The drinks were good, the entrees were all excellent. I highly recommend the statler chicken and lobster ravioli but everyone enjoyed their entree and they were all different. We also got an order of calamari that was very good and a tasty flatbread although the crust could have been crisper and not so doughy for an app. Our server was excellent and could not have been better. We will be back, thank you for a great night!

The calamari was very good. The chicken parm and pasta was just okay. The service was amazing, so I overlook the small imperfections. My girlfriend had the scallops and she said they were great.

Everything about dinner was excellent except the bread. We really wish they would change their bread. All three of us were extremely pleased with our dinners from start to finish! And the service was outstanding which is really saying something during these extremely trying days of covid.

One of the best dining experiences in recent memory. We had a very special dinner there and the staff went above and beyond for us. Ivan was fantastic and the food was exceptional. I think we had almost everything on the menu and every bite was amazing. I’d give 6/5 stars if I could.

Excellent Calamari, cauliflower, and branzino. Pizza is rather sauceless and too much cheese, not enough seasoning. Still, worth a try and I will go back.

I have been here several times and sadly may not go back. The service was not good. We waited 10 minutes for a wait staff to acknowledge us after we were seated and this was only after I asked for this. It took another 10 minutes to get our drink order and the bread showed up at the same time as the food. Perhaps they are dealing with a staff shortage but they shouldn't book the entire restaurant up if they can't service people. The food is really good but for their prices the whole experience should have been better.

Had a great business lunch at Il Massimo. The service was very good and the waiter was attentive. Each meal was excellent with generous portions. The best thing that I enjoyed was that you could actually have a conversation without having to speak loudly due to either music or other patrons. Overall my guests and I enjoyed our meals and I would highly recommend Il Massimo.
