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.

The service at Massimo’s was outstanding. The waitstaff were all very attentive. Our water glasses were filled frequently and our orders delivered with perfect timing. Each in our party of four selected a different meal and each was delicious, with enough portions for sharing.

From the valet to the end of our meal everything was beyond expectation. Highly recommend and we will be returning soon.

We’ve been here before, the food was delicious as usual. Zucchini flower app (special) started us off, hubby had shrimp risotto while I had my usual, Capesante. The flavor combination is something I would never have thought of, and it’s amazing it’s ruined me from ordering anything else here. Lava cake had a bit of crunch to it, and the perfect end to the meal. Looking forward to my risotto leftovers…..service was fantastic, very personable server, lovely Sat Alfresco on the Hill evening.

Service was great; very attentive and personable. From check in to bill pay.
Atmosphere was wonderful; outside dining with music in the distance. Main road was closed off (parking was not so easy) with people perusing.

Food was absolutely delicious. Oysters were sweet , the salmon with black risotto was perfectly prepared. The other dishes our table had were the pork chops …. Delicious . The short rib gnocchi was extremely flavorful . Baked gnocchi wasn’t a favorite …..To saucy. Needed to be a little more baked . Overall we had a wonderful night. The Pinot noir - Andrian was the perfect recommendation. Complimented our meal nicely .

First time eating in federal hill, known for its Italian food. We took a chance eating on a stormy Wednesday night at Massimo and was not disappointed. Delicious bread, extraordinary red sauce. Lobster ravioli with scallops - surf and surf - was divine. Server was very attentive and friendly. Recommend!

The server was working very hard to accommodate everyone while she had a number of tables simultaneously!
The maître d was so nice when she came over to assist the newer bus boy on panna water service and not over filling the glasses, she noticed one of our party was cold and she want and got him a blanket.
Very thoughtful, look forward to coming down from Boston again!!

Our server was very attentive and friendly. The food was great: gnocchi with short ribs, duck confit with fig and walnut ravioli and the octopus appetizer were stand-outs. Providence has been shutting down a section of Atwells Ave to provide extra space for outdoor seating during the pandemic. It was great to get out and enjoy a meal with friends!

My girl and I split the short rib gnocchi and the pan seared scallops w/sweet corn risotto. The risotto was absolutely amazing. Scallops were cooked perfectly too. Hard pan sear but so tender and moist inside . We also had the fried calamari. They were cooked perfectly too. My 2nd time eating here. I will be back again for sure.
