We had a wonderful evening. The only thing we struggled with was the wine selection. It was not great.

Excellent modern Italian cuisine. My dinner and risotto was perfectly cooked, presented nicely and served at perfect temperature. Service was pleasant and refined. Views of the falls early evening were spectacular and added ambiance to a lovely evening.

Coming from a lower middle class salary in the US, I probably would not eat the 3 course meal again due to the price. We spent $130 USD for two people without drinks, including tax and 20% tip. However, the food was amazing. I had bruschetta, shrimp scampi and a 3 cheese cheesecake. The view was really good and the ambiance was nice.

We were welcomed and throughout the evening the service was exceptional- Rowan made us feel as if we were honoured guests.
The food was delightful. Each bite of the food was savoured- the flavours were bold and danced on the palate.
We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fine dining experience

Ambiance was beautiful but on the cold side temperature-wise. Service was good...
Main came out looking delicious but would describe it as lukewarm at best.
Dessert was delicious.

As a lover of great Italian food. This restaurant doesn't represent Massimo's skill in the culinary arts. I thought the truffle & duck tortellini was overcooked and lacked authentic flavour. The duck wasn't seasoned nor was it plated elegantly.

The environment was very warm lit that made you feel comfortable. The view was beautiful.

Overall, I feel I was paying for the view. I've unfortunately had a better Italian dish at East Side Mario's. This restaurant has so much potential. You have the view and the gorgeous setting, all you need is the food to be just as breath-taking.

Food was disappointing! Very limited menu and expensive for the quality. Lots of screaming kids which was a bit shocking - did not expect to fork out $300 for dinner for 3 in a Denny’s atmosphere. View of Falls was nice of course but the experience was a big fail.

The food was delicious & our server Matt was great! My only complaint would be that we requested a window seat when we made our reservation, but we got seated in the middle area under a bright light. We were hoping for a more dark cozy, candlelit table and were a little frustrated when the couple behind us who did not have reservations got seated at table by the window. That aside, the food and service was very well done.

The view was very nice and romantic for our Valentine day dinner. Food was good, but over priced. But we expected that given it is the falls and you pay for the view. Service was good. A couple with a young baby was seated beside us, and at first I was not impressed but my wife reminded we were there 20 yrs ago and we chatted with the young couple.

Food was okay, we had a few dietary restrictions (halal) and weren’t able to substitute meat for veggie because it was Valentines Day and busier. I ordered a Whisky Sour for my drink and it was way too strong, and I didn’t touch it for the rest of the night. I know I could have said something, but the server didn’t ask if it was okay either, which prevented me from wanting to say anything. Ambiance was good, server was friendly and did her best, food was good (loved the mixed greens salad), but I don’t think it was worth it for the price we paid.

I l
Had the garlic bread, the first three slices were made with fresh bread, however the last two were made with stale bread. The lasagne rolls I had were too cold for my liking and had a little too nuch parmasean sliced cheese in the middle and it want melted as the roll must have been made while cold. My husband had the fish which was drenched in some mustard seed sauce. He was unable to finish it as it was too strong.

Booked a reservation well in advance and asked for a quiet table with a view of the falls. Hostess knew we were celebrating my husbands birthday, she then preceeded to sit a family with young children that were out of control at the table beside ours. We asked to move as we couldn't even hear ourselves think. It really ruined the evening. Food was expensive for what it was and the only thing that this place has going is the view of the falls. Hostess's were more intrested in chatting with each other than making sure the customer was their first priority. Felt bad for our first waiter who was a really personable guy who ended up with only the noisy family in his section all night. Our new waitress was great as well. Wouldn't come back, wide selection of wine that wasn't really anything that was known and poor choice of ciders and coolers.

So delicious! We enjoyed the greens and calamari to start. The salad was one of my favourite of all times! We ate every bite of our main dishes too. My steak was perfectly cooked and all of the veggies were tasty. My son’s pasta with shrimp was yummy. The tiramisu and flourless chocolate cake were the perfect way to end a wonderful meal. All of the staff were attentive and respectful. We will definitely return the next time we are in Niagara Falls.

I was underwhelmed by the food. Although I selected a tame entre, gnocki, the sauce was sinplistic. The appetizer out performed. But when you are paying 38, for pasta you expect better than average sauce.

Would not recommend this to anyone..not worth the amount of money they charged. The waiter knew automatic gratuity of over $60 would be charged, they didn't give any attention. Forgot to bring our food, has to ask 3-4 times for the condiments...overall bad experience and very mediocre food.

Timing of food delivery was terrible: Bread and olive oil after appetizer, then main course only a few minutes after bread. When arranging cutlery for bread, butter knife was put on table but no butter arrived only olive oil !? General ambiance not very nice, only a curtain separates the Massimo dining room from the buffet next to it. Will not go back.
