Massimo's has been a Fremont destination and landmark since opening in 1976. The name Massimo's is not only the middle name of our late founder but also means “great”. The food, service and atmosphere is the passion of owner Bill Rinetti Jr. We strive to create a cuisine that is fresh, seasonal and prepared with great care and also include some of our classical preparations including our Caesar Salad which is made in the dining room. The fare is American with bits of Italian influences. We have been featured on KQED "Check Please Bay Area".

Be sure to save room for one of Massimo's Flaming Desserts that have become one of our signature preparations.

    Food is good Ceasar salad made at table side is best Ive had. Two orders of veal scallopini came out cold - took a while to get it back and by that time others at the table had finished their dinners. Also. On the check they added a 5% “surcharge”. That I don’t remember seeing on the menu.

    A little disappointed overall sine the revues I read were very good. Bread was served cold, vegetables were over cooked, and my dates chicken picatta was just okay. Our server was very pleasant and attentive…sorry I can remember her name.

    Don’t let the strip center location fool you. Massimo's exceeded our expectations on our 37 year wedding anniversary dinner. From the personable seating hostess to the jovial waiter AND super friendly waitress, and a signed anniversary card on our table, we felt like regulars even though it was our first visit. Warm bread and butter were served with our drinks with enough time to wait and savor The prawns & sausage risotto and chicken marsala that were delicious and plentiful. Save some room for dessert which didn’t disappoint either. Overall, a real treat and looking forward to our next visit. A friendly suggestion for some light Italian music to enhance the ambiance.

    Massimo’s is our “go to” place for special occasion celebrations and we had a lovely experience there last night. Our waitperson, Sunny, took very good care of us, and also made an outstanding Caesar Salad at our table! Our steaks were cooked to perfection, and the desserts were a nice finish to the meal. Thank you, Massimo’s!

    Father’s Day Dinner Food was on point ! We had Calamari appetizer which was delicious and plentiful. We enjoyed a 3 course meal Minestrone Soup for the guys and the Massimo Greens Salad for myself. My son had the Lasagna which was packed with pork and beef, it came out piping hot. My husband enjoyed the Prawns and spicy Sausage. I had the crusted Halibut. Dessert for the three of was Sorbet, Cheesecake and Oreo crust Mudd pie . While the food was great we waited for about 10 minutes before being approached, after that service was perfect,.

    We dined indoors on a Saturday night; the dining area was about two-thirds full. Food was a mixed bag: our order of garlic bread was over-baked, my double-cut pork chop special was dry, but my partner's chicken marsala was excellent. (I have had the pork chop before, and it has always been excellent). The service was attentive and friendly, but our server was the loudest voice in the restaurant (more of an Applebee's vibe than Fleming's), which ultimately detracted from the ambience. It was not a cheap meal ($60 per person with a single glass of wine and a shared dessert), but was reasonable for the setting and the service. Perhaps the kitchen had an off night.

    It was the Wife’s Birthday, she loves Massimos so we booked a reservation. We requested David as our waiter, we love the ambiance in the bar, David specializes in table side Caesar salad preparation, so we ordered 4 salads. The food was perfect, the wine was even better.
