    This is a quaint little restaurant. The tables are very close together so on a hot summer day with no AC this made for not the most pleasant experience. The food was ok. We ordered a pasta special with homemade pasta with a short rib bolognese which lacked depth and flavor. Tortellini Al forno was heavy on the ricotta and not at all creamy - just cheesy. My young daughter enjoyed her chicken piccata. Over all this restaurant just didn’t live up to reviews and expectations.

    We had a reservation for 730 and did not get seated until 8. We were offered a table on the sidewalk, the table was wobbly but the host put sugar packets to stabilize. We decided to sit inside so we needed to wait an additional 20 min. The waiter was very inpatient. Asking for our order but then answering requests and questions for the table behind us. He stopped at our table with pen and pad, we assumed he was ready to take our order. I started to ask and he looked up at the ceiling and closed his eyes like he was asking the almighty for patience. It was rude and unnecessary. Our food was horrible. I had bolognese, it was the worst I ever tasted, my husband had linguine with shrimp and it was flavorless. The bread was stale! We will not be going back!

    The food here is exquisite. My wife and I shared the delicious fried burrata appetizer. My spouse had an amazing swordfish scampi special, and I enjoyed my tasty chicken, broccoli, shrimp over ziti. Our drinks were superb, and our server Brenton was extraordinary. Portions were large; food quality was superb and the prices were fair. We both loved our meals and the experience and look forward to coming back again soon!

    We have visited Massimino’s many times. Unfortunately, this was not one of our better experiences. Our server … mid-sentence while describing the specials … turned his back on us and left to go deliver food to another table … where he remained for 10-15 minutes. When he returned, he could not recall where he left off. And this, all before taking a drink order. Which, another server recognized and finally remedied. Our stuffed veal chop was undercooked. And service the remainder of the meal never really recovered from the very bad start. It could just have been a bad night. We are hopeful for a better experience next time we visit.

    Absolutely unbelievable!!! We had a large group of 8 and we were sat immediately. The owner greeted us and was extremely pleasant. Our server was fantastic!! She was so informative, patient, and guided us through our selection process. Our table got a wide array of dishes, from fried calamari, bruscetta, a special Antipasti board, each one was more delicious than the next. Our entrees, veal, chicken, seafood, everything prepared to perfection! The flavors were outstanding, everything fresh and piping hot. Such a tiny cozy place, pumping out amazing everything! If we lived closer we would be there on a weekly basis! Bravo for a gorgeous meal from start to finish! Wishing you years of prosperous success, your neighborhood is blessed to have you!!

    My brother and I loved our meal here. Our waiter Brenton was superb. We feasted on fried calamari, delicious Veal Fiorentina, a succulent scallop and a shrimp limoncello special. My brother also loved his side salad and sautéed spinach. The food was exquisite; the service was outstanding and the portions were very large. I highly recommend dining here when visiting the North End or attending a TD Garden event.

    We ate at Massiminos for a graduation dinner of 6 adults on a Friday night in Boston in May. Our waiter was Felipe who was EXCELLENT! He was very attentive and did an amazing job of telling us all the specials. Eventually half of us had some version of the seafood papardelle in vodka sauce. They made alternate versions in vegan and extra spicy. The portions are quite large, even the appetizers ( we had 2 bruschetta and one calamari). Everyone had a great time. The only bad part of the night was finding parking in the North End!

    We booked a month in advance because this was our 30th anniversary trip. The waiter never told us about specials, never mentioned our anniversary… Never brought bread… Everyone around us was getting the full experience… So I’m not sure if this was a personal issue or what was going on. Food was fantastic but we were looking for something to be a bit more special

    We love this restaurant! The food was so delicious. We ordered calamari and an antipasti dish with cheeses, meats, olives, artichokes and salad full of parmesan cheese for appetizers. Everything was so fresh and full of flavor. I ordered eggplant parmesan and my husband ordered the Veal Piccata. Both entrees were delicious and we ate every bite. My friend is gluten free and the chef prepared gluten free pasta with vegetables in a white wine garlic sauce, which she loved! My other friend had the Fra Diavlo which was full of seafood and wonderful. We can't wait to go back!
