Italian
From Joseph + Esther DeQuattro of Pane Vino comes the much anticipated Massimo. Massimo brings the quintessential Italian trattoria to Providence’s Federal Hill Neighborhood. Offering a contemporary Italian menu inspired by the regional cuisines of Italy. Signature dishes include the Chitarra alla Carbonara; Fig & Tallegio Pizza; and House-Aged Rib-eye “Fiorentina”.

Massimo is classically designed to create a warm and lively setting. Massimo’s spacious dining room and glass-enclosed private dining room—including a full bar & lounge—make it the perfect place for occasions of all scopes and sizes, whether it’s a quiet night out with friends and family, or a boisterous celebration with dozens of guests.

Massimo has unique Italian wines from small boutique Italian winemakers (available nowhere else!) and a cellar selection from Italy, Spain and California. Our approach to wine is accessibility, quality and variety to encourage unfettered enjoyment.

    Absolutely delicious. No complaints. We had gnocchi, caprese salad, bolognese, and affagato. Every single thing was delicious. The one thing is there’s a very minimal beer menu but who care? You’re here for pasta and the pasta is fabulous. Choose happiness. Choose massimo.

    Food was great and the prices are reasonable for the area. Being seated on the 2nd floor seems to put the waitstaff in a tough spot to be attentive. Staff is great, they just seem overwhelmed upstairs.

    Sadly disappointed. Calamari appetizer was rubbery. Capesante was good, but 4 scallops of at best medium size? Really? Same with the Gamberi, but at least the great desserts (Cheese cake & Tiramisu) filled the void left by the entree's. Service was ok. As OpenTable does not have a "Nothing" option, I'll select "Kid Friendly" under "Recommended for" as Kids don't feel the sting of overpriced, just ok food.

    We were scheduled to eat outside but it was too cold so we really lucked out and were seated at the bar. The two guys working the bar,Matt and Justin, made our evening one to remember. They were so warm and engaging and we shared many laughs throughout our delicious drinks and meal. We are still talking about it today. What a special time.

    When I booked in the morning only outside seating was available, which didn't bother me because it was a gorgeous June day. However, the weather changed and became cloudy and cool. I packed warm outerwear and we set off for Providence from Cape Cod, but also hoped outdoor seating might include heat lamps. No such luck and the weather outside was really quite windy and unpleasant when we arrived after spending an extra 45 minutes navigating traffic jams and road closures due to a PRIDE gathering and parade. We did manage to snag 3 seats inside at the bar upstairs and the service and food were both truly terrific!

    Out for dinner with dear friends from NY. The service was impeccable, Julia / Jules our server is an asset to your restaurant. Julia is extremely knowledgeable and you can see how she enjoys her work, her guests and certainly the menu offered… Massimo’s is a wonderful Italian restaurant, offering an array of finely seasoned food. A wonderful wine and cocktails selection and desserts…

    There was construction happening on the first level, but the second floor dining room was quiet and lovely. We got the Fixed Price lunch, which was a great value. Pasta Fagiola soup excellent. My risotto was a bit undercooked and very salty. Dessert was outstanding.

    My only issue is the outside tables are so unstable and uneven, it seems like it would be an easy fix and would eliminate our glasses sliding down toward the sidewalk every time we set them down. The food is always amazing, our waitress was perfect. My favorite place on the hill. Next time I'll just eat inside

    A friend and I were in Providence for a comedy show and needed to find a place that had gluten free options for her. Massimo has an entire GF menu which sold us. Our server, Nate, was awesome and gave recommendations/was open to us making substitutions for our meals, and the busboys were equally as attentive and nice. My friend said her gluten free chicken parm was delicious, and she really appreciated that she was given gluten free rolls to enjoy the dipping oil (at no extra cost). I had the rigatoni in rose sauce which was simple but perfect. We'll definitely be back if we're ever in Providence, and will otherwise be checking out the Dedham location.
