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.

We were initially seated in a somewhat high traffic area. When we stated that this made us a little uncomfortable, we were accommodated quickly. The service was great and the food was outstanding. We will be back!

My Saturday lunch at Massimo was perfect! I had the salmon and it was to die for! The carrot puree on the side was so delicious that I had to ask for more! My server was very kind and attentive. Thank you for a wonderful experience. Oh and let me not forget, the bread with oil was DIVINE! I will for sure be back. I loved it.

We went on Wednesday 1/6 at 4:30. I needed a break from the horrors at the Capital.
Just what we needed! A delicious Red Sangria for me and a Pinot Noir for my date.
Meatball App, HHmm!!! Focaccia Bread right from the oven, Hhmmm! Meals were scrumptious. Beth our server attentive and patient. Thanks for a much needed Week Night break. We will be back!!

Everything in the above categories was good. I am surprised there was not a category covering the drinks!? They are a substantial portion of the cost as well as the enjoyment of the meal.
The drink was not generous; no “sidecar” ! I would think that when you charge close to $300.00 per bottle of liquor you could provide your customers with a generous drink.

Brunch on New Years. Food was overall very good. Waitress was super attentive. Meatball was delicious. Carbonara was pretty good and they offered to stir in the raw egg they usually put on top. However I believe carbonara should have the egg/parm mixture mixed in while pasta is hot to make that creamy sauce. Raw egg on top just doesn’t seem right. Appetizer pizzas were good however they say “pizette” on the menu which makes me think they would be small individual size and 3 people ordered them as their appetizer and they were each enough for three people. Like each one was a medium/large pizza Probably waitress should have explained sizing when everyone ordered and appetizer and an entrée. But we had pizza to bring home.

Out for a drive with nothing in mind but an empty stomach. Checked out local dining options and found this place. It was our first time. The atmosphere was calm and enjoyable but obviously effected by covid restrictions. Now we know about available parking a block away we come back the next time we are in the area.

Christmas Eve dinner. Service outstanding (Benedetta is a delight). Food was absolutely great but couldn’t give five stars because they ran out of clams! How does that happen on the biggest fish feast of the year? ❤️

We went for Christmas Eve dinner, feast of the seven fishes. We had reservations but still had to wait more than 30 minutes and keep checking in. Other than that the night was fabulous. The waitress was so professional, attentive and sweet. The ambiance was beautiful and classic. Each course was better than the last and by far the best 7 fishes dinner we have had in RI. The bartender was so creative and drinks amazing. Love il massimo and will continue to make it our holiday tradition.

I had a phenomenal experience here. I ordered the veal tenderloin, which was very flavorful and my boyfriend ordered the lobster fra diavolo. We both loved our dishes. The atmosphere was also very lovely with all the Christmas trees and decor. They also laid out rose petals on our table which was so cute (I put the occasion as a date for the occasion option on open table when making the reservation). I will definitely be back, as this was one of my top restaurant dining experiences.

They did a great job welcoming is and making our experience the best it could be during Covid. Plexi glass partitions, and minimal tables all helped. Excellent food from bread starter to Branzino and Pasta Bolognese to the delicious bread pudding with Vanilla gelato.

We were approached several times during our meal to assure us that our dinner was due shortly and if there was anything we needed. The meal was delicious. The restaurant took all precautions necessary during this covid crisis

With the rest of the family staying home this year, I decided to make a reservation at Massimo with my wife. I made a 2pm reservation and was seated promptly, The set up was great with ample separation and glass partitions. Albeit a tad cool, the atmosphere was festive and well done. Our server, Mercedes, was extremely pleasant and attentive and made for an excellent experience. We ordered a bottle of wine and added the calamari to the Thanksgiving Dinner offered. All courses were well presented and excellent. The only notation I'd make involves the dinner rolls offered. I think an opportunity was missed to set the stage for an otherwise great experience. These were lackluster at best. Perhaps a slight re-heating would have helped but I'd recommend a more unique offering reflecting the quality of the other courses. Just my opinion!

Wow! So many choices for Italian food on Federal Hill. This was our first restaurant we selected to visit - and it'll be hard not to return soon! The menu is awesome - as in you can't decide what to order, as it all looks great! We started with a great bottle of a Super Tuscan recommended by the bartender - and at a great price! The appetizers were awesome, the brussel sprouts dish about the best ever had, calamari awesome and the pasta was all so fresh and filling.

The best part? The AMAZING staff - a well oiled machine of a big, happy, professional, efficient and caring crew that seem to be all a part of a big family!
