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.

Our date was perfect. From cocktails and starters, to the entrées we shared, right to the end with our delicious tiramisu and their special “orangecello”. We loved it all. And the best part was the excellent service.

Typical Italian menu. Wasn’t thrilled about going up a flight of stairs to reach the dining room. Service was excellent! Wish I had known about the free valet parking across the street.

My dinner tasted good but it was not very warm. My daughter's was really hot, which makes me think mine just sat there while hers was cooking.

The food was fantastic. Really delicious. Generous portions. The service was great. We ate outdoors. The sidewalk is narrow but they did the best they could to creat ambiance with nice flowers and there were heaters. I would definitely recommend it. We will go back!

Went for dinner Thursday night at 6 pm so we could enjoy the last hour or two of light. 20th anniversary dinner. We had never been to Massimo's before but the menu looked good so decided to give it a chance. One of the best meals we have ever had! Spinach salad, calamari, pork chop and scallop dinner. We sat outside, nice comfortable chairs, great service (waiter nickname is Ms). Can't say enough about what a nice night we had. Our only negative comment would be that when you book online it asks if you are celebrating a particular event. We checked that it was our anniversary. The waiter, though fantastic, clearly had no idea it was our anniversary (not his fault obviously lack of communication). After dinner when we told him we were celebrating he offered orange cello shots which we did not want as we had a bottle of wine with dinner. Asked for a dessert instead which was not an option. Seems like a celebration offering should not just be an alcoholic beverage. Just sayin...... Regardless highly, highly. recommend!

The black squid pasta with lobster was delicious, my wife and I split a Caesar salad it was the best ever. We had a wonderful bottle of Chianti Classico. The fresh bread was delicious. Server was very attentive and pleasant!

Danielle was a great server. The food was outstanding. We order the specials and it was so delicious. Music was good, ambient lighting was nice as well. My wife and I took my dad here when he came to town and he mentioned it was better than his favorite Italian spot back home.

We had a party of 7 and the staff sat us right away when we arrived. Our waitress, Carvel, was very attentive and always there at just the right time. It was a wonderful dinner experience, the food was great and everyone loved their meals.

I would highly recommend Massimo's to friends and family.

This place never disappoints! We had a great weather night and ate outside - was beautiful - Nate our server was very very good - great menu suggestions - the hosts were fantastic - service was smooth and efficient - I actually feel silly writing this review because Il Massimo is so good, it’s impossible to describe it well enough - go, you won’t be disappointed

Massimo was incredible! The service was quick, but not rushed. Outdoor seating was comfortable and spacious, with a gorgeous view of the sunset over Federall Hill. The food was outstanding. We had the calamari (which I’ve determined is the best I’ve ever had), burrata, short rib gnocchi, squid ink pasta with lobster, tiramisu and the cheesecake. Highly recommend duplicating it for your next date night! We were celebrating my boyfriend’s birthday and they brought us their house made orangechello shots as a nightcap. It was a perfect evening and we can’t wait to return!
