Best experience I had at in Niagara solely because of the server. I don't remember his name but he was from Bath, UK and has a slight British accent. He took such good care of my boyfriend and I, we even considered going back to Niagara just to hang out with the server. I feel so bad that I can't remember his name but he was the sweetest guy in the building, 12/10 service!

Loved our time at Massimo's! We were celebrating our anniversary and the service and ambience was impeccable. I am vegetarian and the server (Matt) was great in ensuring we had good options. It's more on the expensive end, but worth it if you're celebrating something special.

Great view of the falls. Restaurant could use a bit more decor and styling to set a more luxurious vibe, which I expected it to have. Otherwise, excellent service and food.

First, the view was easily the best view at dinner EVER! Covid has ruined the dining experience. Food was average quality. Although there was attention to creating a fresh meal, there were only 4 main courses and no choice for dessert. I would recommend solely for the view.

What can I say? It’s my second time here. Valentines 2020 and First Anniversary March 12-14 2021. The atmosphere .. considering they’re working with limited capacity, hasn’t changed much. You’d never know you were in the middle of a so-called “pandemic lock-down”. The ambiance is still romantic, the view is breathtaking and the music lighting and noise level are all relaxing and inviting. The food is absolutely incredible. Both times I’ve found something on the menu I could confidently say was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten. Last time it was the Lemon Budino dessert and this time it was that (what could only be described as) award winning garlic bread. The wonderful English fellow who served us last time was fun, friendly and extremely knowledgeable. I remembered him immediately when he approached our table. Our main server for this trip was a very sweet and pleasant young lady who gave me a great recommendation for the whisky sour that cut through the rich decadent pasta that I ordered for my meal. It was the perfect compliment to my dish. She was attentive but not in an overly pushy sort of way. She had a lovely presence and made our dinner experience memorable. The FOH staff was accommodating as we had arrived half hour earlier by mistake and wanted to be seated somewhere very specific. They made it happen without making us feel as if we were inconveniencing them. Both visits were wonderful. This is easily one of the best restaurants in Niagara Falls or anywhere. We will be returning very soon!

I spoke to the server about our meal. We had the trio. I had the shrimp linguine and my husband had the beef. We had garlic bread and calamari. The server brought bread also. My complaints were about the bread. Had we known bread would be served with the meal we would have got another appetizer. We took home all of the garlic bread. My past came with 1 large shrimp and the rest was smaller pieces that were not fresh. It did not look like what you advertise. My husbands beef was delicious but the potatoes were uncooked.
By the time the desert came we were full and ready to go. I asked for the desert to go but unfortunately it was just gelato. So we had nothing. The server said she would adjust the bill to pay a la carte and it ended up taking $2 off the bill.
I expressed my concerns to her. The lack of communication. We choose your restaurant based on the adds. A meal costing $60/$80 per person should be absolutely delicious.

Great food! Beautiful view! Not very
Kid friendly.. very dim lighting and menu didn’t have pizza or vegetable options (just salad- not kid friendly). Menu is expensive however the main courses were delicious and the pasta Bolognese for the kids was well accepted.

Overpriced for portion size. Kids menu order was bigger than main pasta dish. I know it is Niagara but you want to at least get a better portion for 36 dollar pasta dish.

Great food and superb service. I love my rack of lamb. Finishing with Tiramisu and Chocolate cheesecake made a great finale. Stunning fallsview.
Feel safe as covid 19 precaution is in place at the restaurant. Table and chairs are sanitized on every departure of previous guests.

As always at a Massimo joint, food was exceptional. See it was a little thin, but a Sunday evening outing during COVID was to be expected. They can’t run full shifts with 10 guests. You should go! Not very expensive, and the quality of the food was simply refined and wonderful.

The server was pleasant but for not many tables he seemed very preoccupied. We ordered our meals and I ordered a bloody Caesar .. it had an off smell to it.. very vinegar like.. I drank some tasted off , my wife tried it and she agreed.. I let the server know.. he offered to replace it and agreed that maybe the Clamato juice was bad.. I thought WTF would you not check the expiration of your products before serving it to customers.. I declined the replacement and was hoping to not suffer any ill effects. My wife also ordered a pop and we had to remind our server as he forgot ! In fairness we were not charged for these beverages - at least. However one other complaint was this was our 35th wedding anniversary celebration. We indicated that on our reservation and I even called the restaurant to confirm our reservation.. well nothing special was done for us - not even offering something for us to share as a dessert - on the house .. seems like it does not matter if you indicate any special occasion , as its not even acknowledged by the staff or restaurant management - very disappointing for such a supposedly high class place. Oh well I guess they were not to concerned about the current economic times to offer that little extra customer service which would have made this experience more memorable. The food at least was good and a decent portion. Other than the lack of attention to spoiled Clamato juice and forgetting to bring a beverage and nothing special for our 35th wedding anniversary - oh well .. I wont be coming back - sadly due to the lack of attention to detail by the staff and management. To the chef, thank you the meal was delicious.
