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.

Always great food and great service at Massimo, and last night was no exception. Especially enjoyed the special arancini appetizer, made with crabmeat.

We came into town to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. It was such an assume experience, they had rose petals on the table, we were served complimentary champagne and was greeted by the general manager. I would definitely visit again.

I will forever preach about how amazing this place is! I also highly suggest the smoked old fashion! It has an elevated smooth palette with a zesty aroma. Nothing better than that after an amazing meal and gellato!

Simply put, the food is delicious. The menu has unusual offerings in addition to what you expect at an Italian restaurant. Our server was just the right amount of attentive. We both enjoyed our meals very much - Linguine with clams for me and shrimp risotto for my niece. We shared a salad as well.
The wine list is extensive but I chose to have a cocktail, which was properly made.
We both were extremely happy to find this fabulous restaurant as she is now living in Providence. Highly recommend Massimos’s!

It was one of the best anniversary dinner my fiancé and I have had. The food was delicious and the service was exceptional. All of the staff made us feel so special and made our night even more by adding their personal touch of rose petals and a cute little love quote card on the table. My fiancé and I have been to many (fine dining) restaurants to celebrate our anniversary and nothing doesn’t compare to here.

We had an outstanding waitress, Danielle, who was running up and down the stairs to make sure we were OK, since we were seated on the second floor and the only table there for awhile.
Food was excellent and the prix fix was great for lunch.

We sat outside on a Tuesday. All about Massimo deserves 5 stars. The street noise is occasionally a problem with the motorcyclists and drivers gunning their engines. Not sure I’d eat outside on a weekend. 😄

Restaurant Week- who knew? $39.95 three course prix fixe.
We ordered Caprese salad & Octopus apps, Veal Chop Milanese & Cannoli for dessert. Huge portions, everything was delicious. We wanted to try iconic Italian on Federal Hill when we stopped for the night in Providence on our way back to the NYC. It did not disappoint.

We always enjoy this restaurant but the seating is always challenging. When I make a reservation I do not have a choice of choosing a table. I assume this is true for all guests. Why is it that when I ask the hostess for a more desirable seat her answer is always "that table is reserved". If I do not have the option to reserve a table how can another guest have this option?

French toast was very good but my son's scrambled eggs were overcooked and had a different kind of cheese in them that he did not care for. The hash was more of a stew and did not have much brisket in it. Crab cakes benedict were also disappointing. Would not recommend the savory brunch items.

Top marks on all fronts! They worked to get our party of 10 seated together outside at the last minute even though it had been rainy earlier that night. Zoe was our waitress, and she was fabulous - very helpful in wine and food choices, super friendly without being at all invasive. The food, wine, and desserts were all amazing…a very memorable night!

We had reservations for 7:30, we didn’t get seated until 7:45, most likely due to the rain. When we were seated, it was at an uncomfortable high top, next to a very noisy rehearsal dinner. Not a great start. Our cocktail were really good, our appetizers were also good. We requested bread 3 times, we’re told it’s still in the oven, although every table around us got theirs after we asked. The short rib gnocchi was good as was the veal parmigiana, although the pasta with the parm was cold, not Luke warm, just cold. The carbonara was definitely under seasoned, the sauce was grainy, and just not good. We’re very disappointed with this restaurant. It used to be a favorite of ours, but, like a lot of restaurants, I think they’re having a hard time coming back from COVID.
