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.

    We sat outside, was disappointed and surprised there were no heaters. Food was good- solid, tasty. We had fettuccini Bolognese and Nocci with short rib ragu. Service was friendly but not overly attentive. We will be back but much prefer to eat Inside.

    My daughter and I were in town to see Waterfire, but eating dinner at Massimo’s was also high on our list. Providence has a lot of good restaurants, but Massimo’s is our favorite. We shared Calamari Fritti and an appetizer special of Arancini (so good). My daughter’s favorite Branzino is no longer served with lentils (which she loved). so she opted for the Vitello alla Griglia. I had the special Surf and Turf, which consisted of a filet and some lobster ravioli, topped with pieces of lobster and a sauce, along with broccoli rabe. My steak came rare as I requested - you’d be surprised how often kitchens can’t seem to get this right. Both entrees were excellent and big enough to require doggy bags. We finished the meal by sharing some chocolate gelato, which was super rich and chocolaty. Table service was excellent, and valet parking was great, too.

    This was our first time dining at Massimo. The menu has great options with fresh ingredients and our meal was fantastic. Our server was outstanding. He was able able to answer all of our questions on how a few dishes were prepared, timed our appetizers, salad, and main entree perfectly allowing us to enjoy our dinner experience.

    Fantastic Sunday morning brunch. Superb and knowledegable waitstaff, delicious food items, and European ambiance of open air dining. We shared a bomboloni and a complimentary serving of sweetbread with oil along with our cappuccinos as we waited for our dishes. We tried a variety of items from the brunch menu and all were truly superb. You just can't go wrong having a meal here. Just made for a great memories. Thank you!

    I have made multiple visits to Massimo and usually enjoy it very much. Which is why I chose it to celebrate my mil birthday. This visit however was disappointing. The food was sub par, the octopus appetizer which is one of my favorites was lacking the usual flavor. My husbands and mil chicken Parmesan was served Luke warm and tough. My carbonara was good but the temperature was room temperature. I was disappointed overall. Usually the food is wonderful. Our waiter who was very attentive on the onset disappeared and was reappearing at our table sporadically. I have not done there on a Saturday evening. Usually it has been a week night or for lunch and perhaps that was the difference. Overall I was disappointed and the check Was quite expensive for three adults and two children.

    First time here. Service was great. The waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. Appetizers (arancini and caprese salad) were very, very good. However the sauce on rigatoni tasted like Hunts sauce from the can. The seafood fra diavolo sauce was very thick pasty. The cannolis for dessert were outstanding!

    The service was awful. The calamari appetizer was cold. The entrees took an hour to arrive. My wife’s veal was cold and the gnocchi which accompanied it. It was a busy Friday night with several large parties which possibly backed up the kitchen. The air-conditioning was bitter cold and uncomfortable with vents blowing directly on us. Awful experience. They removed the dessert from the bill to accommodate. How laughable. The most inexpensive item was removed from our $320 bill. Poor customer service.

    Fabulous experience, worth repeating. Our server, Benedetta, was energetic, personable and very professional. We had the arancini appetizer (a special for the evening) followed by the Spaghetti Nero con Aragosta with the Carciofi (baby artichokes) as a side, followed by a Strawberry Bread Pudding dessert with strawberry gelato. All plates were gorgeous, especially the black squid ink pasta. With help from Benedetta, we selected a wonderful Brunello that paired well with everything. We sat outside at a streetside table, with unfortunately loud vehicles with pounding music passing by. Not the fault of Massimo. Some things to work on: place tablecloths on the outdoor tables; the time to service was off - our appetizer came out cold and the dessert came out almost completely melted, staff was working hard but coordination was off; the wine list is not up to date - several wines were not in stock and even when you pick a wine, the vintage served was not the same as in the wine list. Not good news. All in all, still a great experience. We’ll certainly visit Massimo again.

    Food was excellent! Wait service was good, food service could have been better. Outdoor dining was disappointing because the table are not level and are slanted. Also they block the sidewalk and when we were there a woman in a wheelchair had to get help off the curb and had to go in the street to get around the restaurant.
