We LOVE Massimos. One of the best, friendliest places for lunch or dinner in the area. Not an expansive menu, but everything we've tried has been exceptional! The risottos are incredible, enough for a second meal later, and the wine list is outstanding. Most enjoyable is to meet Massimo himself, who makes it a point to come out of the... More

Amazing restaurant. Our meals were incredible. Fabulous wine list. Our server Bertrand from Nice, France was the BEST. Loved meeting the chef who kept coming out to check on everyone. Thank you so much for a wonderful night!

While a somewhat limited menu, everything on it is superb. Tonight it was the beef marrow with toast points appetizer, then sea food risotto and divers scallops.....all presented beautifully. Great wine list.....just trust your server for recommendations. A bit pricey, but worth every penny. The ambience, while not brightly lit, is romantic, and Massimo is always available to chat or...

Lovely atmosphere, impecable service (thank you Bertrand), food truly well prepared. I recommend the risotto, the veal, the grouper, the foix gras with tamarindo jelly, the entire menu is worth saving your appetite for.

Went with my boyfriend for a romantic dinner and we were not disappointed. Full bar offered interesting drinks yet wine choices could be a little better. Interesting appetizers, nice specials and lovely desert choices especially the tiramisu was 5 on 5! Can't wait to go back and enjoy another fine dining experience

Had high expectations, none of which were reached. Food was average. Plates were cold. Atmosphere too dark. Not going back.

I had been to this restaurant many years ago for a wine and food pairing event, but sadly, had not been back since. As my 3rd anniversary approached, I was looking for a nice restaurant to treat my wife, but something we had not enjoyed together before. Fortunately, I remembered this restaurant about a mile from our front door, tucked... More

Oh my what a change and not for the best. We have been there several times and this is the worst. I believe it has changed in owner-ship or management. I had to send back a soup I had, as it was filled with salt ,replaced it with a salad and it was dripping in a dressing. The main meal... More

This was my 3rd visit to Massimo's and I came away with the impression that something there has changed...just can't put my finger on it. This time the food was good, but not outstanding as before. The service was excellent however and unchanged in that regard.

Join Chef Massimo for an artful blend of Italian and Mediterranean cuisines paired with an award winning wine list and full bar. Appetizers range from Hudson Valley Grade-A Foie Gras, Pistachio coated Pan Seared Duck and Brie to Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and rice flour battered calamari. A rich, creamy lobster bisque is a favorite among customers. Other specialties include Veal Cognac in a creamy truffle sauce, veal chop, sweetbreads, risotto and Chilean Sea Bass. Last, but not least, are the homemade delectable desserts. Complementing his efforts in the kitchen is the gracious, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Tables at the casually elegant restaurant are dressed with crisp table linens, and candles. Cascading fountains decorate the walls.
