    We had a great waitress, she warned us about how two do the four meals we ordered took a little longer to cook. But all four meals came out at the same time and were all hot and fresh. We went for a birthday and they do a very subtle yet nice birthday table and a candle in the dessert

    This was not our first time and everything lived up to the expectation we had after our first time there. We had reservations for 6 and, unexpectedly right before our time, the other party we were dining with brought along 2 "extra" people. Everyone at the restaurant went out of their way to accommodate the change on a very busy night. We could not have been more grateful. The food and drinks were outstanding. The staff was super helpful and attentive. Can't say enough about the Il Massimo expereince...one of the best!

    The assistant manager Danielle was extremely accommodating , settling us in and taking our first drink order. She was great with all customers and we could see she jumped in and helped all of her staff. Ivan another manager also came over to ensure we didn’t need anything. Orlando was our waiter and he was excellent too. Food was great. We will be back again

    I met a friend for lunch. I liked the 3 course meal option for $22.00. I had a salad, chicken piccata and a cannoli. Our waiter was Keith. He was very attentive but not intrusive. The ambiance is good. We could carry on a conversation with no background sounds/noise. I would recommend.

    1st time here, 3 of us. Pasta dish with pesto had too much sauce. Scallop dish with squash was lacking flavor. Scallops were fine. Did not eat the Brussel sprouts (my issue). Service was excellent. I am recommending this restaurant to others only since I believe other dishes should be tried before a proper review.

    The ambiance was lovely, the staff professional and upbeat and the food delicious. Our waiter Bronson went above and beyond; he was pleasant, professional, patient and clearly was trying hard to do a good job. HOORAY!! Everyone made a point of wishing me Happy Birthday (made a reservation) in person but in addition there was festive table decor to greet us and a candle at the end. The food was yummy; we had the charcuterie board to start. My blood orange Cosmo was spot on and the Italian wine a good choice from the restaurant. DH had the gnocchi and pronounced it exquisite. The place seems to SHINE with their sauces. They were gracious to offer packing up leftovers for us to enjoy later. It was not our first visit; we'll definitely go back AND try to get a table with Bronson.

    Had res at high top. Immediately seated. No server came over to greet us. Had to move to bar to get any service. Bartender wasn’t attentive at all. Bar area didn’t have any other patrons to keep bartender/waitresses away. Have been here plenty of times and was rather satisfied but the service today was particular bad.

    Made a reservation for New Year’s Day brunch. Arrived and we’re set promptly. Waited 20 minutes to be acknowledged by the server. Ordered a bottle of champagne and waited another 20 minutes which was a bit ridiculous because the restaurant was empty and we saw the bottle sitting on the bar. We just wanted to enjoy a toast before the food came. The food came out and was placed on the table, then the bottle arrived. What made it even more frustrating was that there was a party that came next to us that arrived after we had ordered the champagne and they got their food and champagne, the exact same time that we did. the food was OK, was a bit cold. Perhaps the staff was hung over and needed a while to get going. I don’t know, overall, I would give it another chance, but that particular day it was disappointing.

There is an extensive wine selection and the cocktails are always expertly prepared. We've always had professional and attentive service from the waitstaff.

    The veal chop, on the bone, was outstanding. My husband had the mixture of large beans with the octopus in a broth for an appetizer. The meat was so tender and flavorful. My Caesar Salad with the freshly grated cheese and anchovies was excellent. Cheesecake with cherries finished off my husband's meal with a smile. My chocolate lava cake with vanilla gelato left me wishing that I could lick the plate! Just kidding! The only miss of the night was that no one gave us the focaccia bread and after our dinners arrived, we had to request it. We each have enough veal left over for another meal later this week.

    A reminder that fine 5 star Italian fare is close by; starting with delectable artichokes that you really must try; as well as the finest buffalo mozzarella with prosciutto and peppers. Now you can get chicken almost anywhere; but frankly their Limone preparation leaves you satiated and the Mrs swears by the parmigiana. All of this accompanied by a couple of glasses of Super Tuscan for me and Sparkling Rose for my bride. I would be remiss to forget to mention the Tiramisu she had for dessert. I look forward to our next visit in the new year. Buon Appetito!!!

    Wife's Steak wasn't seasoned at all, minimum salt and nothing else. There was no Broccoli for my daughter's Chicken, Broccoli, Ziti and my veal was very dry. Drinks were good. I could have gone to 99 and got the same meal for 1/3 of the cost.

    This is our 4 or 5 th visit over past 2 years and it has gone down in my eval. Tables for 2 are limited and very small. A plate and a glass essentially fill it up. Made my reservation more than a week in advance for 6pm and got a crappy table. 1/3 of the restaurant had empty tables but the crowd arrived around 7:30 so I guess they hold the better tables for later clients. My blackberry bourbon smash had one blackberry and a tiny shred of mint. The second on had no mint. Ridiculous for a $14 cocktail. The meatball appetizer was good. Bread and olives had 3 olives for two people. Again what would it cost to include one more olive for an even number. The veal tenderloin was drowning in sauce resulting in mashed potatoes that were soupy. Gnocchi bolognese was okay as were the desserts. I have had a better experience at earlier visits and I know they can and should do better.

    We had a table of 6 at one of the velvet half-moon tables in the back. We really appreciated being out of the "thick of it" as it was incredibly busy...and loud...in the main dining room. Service was a slow, esp. from the bar, but it was SO busy so we just accepted it That said, our server was really awesome; particularly because it was so busy and our drinks took "forever". She did a great job under those circumstances which was a plus. The food was outstanding; we each enjoyed our different dinner very much. I would not hesitate to return...hopefully when it's less busy and the service overall is more prompt.

    I was surprised that a relatively high priced Italian restaurant was so mediocre. The food was just fair and clearly had been sitting for a while prior to being served. Service was very slow. Shouldn't take three hours for Dinner on a Tuesday night. There are several local Italian restaurants in the area with better pricing and superior food.
