From Joseph + Esther DeQuattro of Pane Vino comes the much anticipated Massimo. Massimo brings the quintessential Italian trattoria to Providence’s Federal Hill Neighborhood. Offering a contemporary Italian menu inspired by the regional cuisines of Italy. Signature dishes include the Spaghettini alla Carbonara; Fig & Gorganzola Pizza; and House-Cured Duck Confit “Anatra”.

Massimo is classically designed to create a warm and lively setting. Massimo’s spacious dining room and glass-enclosed private dining room—including a full bar & lounge—make it the perfect place for occasions of all scopes and sizes, whether it’s a quiet night out with friends and family, or a boisterous celebration with dozens of guests.

Massimo has unique Italian wines from small boutique Italian winemakers (available nowhere else!) and a cellar selection from Italy, Spain and California. Our approach to wine is accessibility, quality and variety to encourage unfettered enjoyment.

    Fantastic experience dining here for my wife’s birthday. The staff was very accommodating and professional. Service was attentive and dishes came well paced. The food was excellent. The only small gripe were the mussels, since many of them were served unopened, but otherwise the opened ones were delicious. Everything we ordered was great. Will definitely come back when in the area again!

    Not our first time visit and ambiance depends where you’re sitting. We sat by the upstairs bar and on a Friday night so it was busy and noisy. Still had good food and though service was not necessarily lacking you felt the rush. Will return when weather is better and sit downstairs either outside, to people watch, or by sliders.

    Our server Gabrielle was wonderful, friendly, and attentive. We were there for Mother's Day and our dinner was perfect from start to finish. The cocktails were delicious and the entrees were so fresh! My eggplant parmigiana was so yummy I ate it all. My husband loved his filet as well and said it was cooked perfectly. My sons also loved their crab ravioli and eggplant/mushroom tower. We'll be back for sure!

    Mother's Day brunch. The food was decent, but not outstanding. There were a lot of gluten-free options, but the server wasn't exactly sure what that meant for most of the options. With so many Italian options nearby, I'm not sure we would try it again so quickly.

    This might have been my mistake but after reading several reviews I thought that this Massimo was related to the Massimo in Portsmouth, N.H. which is superb. This Massimo was adequate but not outstanding. Noise level was high, food average, and ambiance OK> That being said the service was very good and our drinks were also good.

    The service was top notch. I had the lobster special… it was Good. My wife’s food was ok. My son’s food was basic pasta with sauce… the worse part was there was no salt in the pasta water( why, so basic ) sauce was fresh, lacked seasoning.

    This was our first visit and we were celebrating my son’s college graduation. Our server, Nate, was absolutely amazing. We appreciated the fact that we could order half portions of entrées so that we could try a bunch of different meals. Everything was amazing. I accidentally only made the reservation for four people and we needed space for five and they were able to accommodate us no problem. We will definitely be back again.

    The food and service are very good here. They offer al fresco dining on nice days, so if you are looking for a quieter experience, you may want to request the upstairs dining room. The lower level is open to the street with lots of street noise. That said, it’s still a good place to go, albeit a little expensive.

    Despite being super busy because it was Mother’s Day, our server was very attentive and prompt with our orders. Even the drink order which we expected delays with because the restaurant was packed for brunch were not delayed. As for the food, what can I say? It’s Camille’s. Always delicious.

    We had the fixed-price 3-course lunch. It was a good deal. The appetizers were very good - I had the soup with beans and kale and my friend had the mixed salad. Very nice - fresh made and flavorful. My main was the seafood risotto, which was unfortunately overly salty. My friend's ravoli were a bit soupy. Desserts (tiramisu and cannoli) were both excellent. Good service and pleasant atmosphere.

    Massimo was wonderful. Martini and meatball appetizer amazing. Also, olives and focaccia bread served. We each had a pasta dish and both delicious and very plentiful. They do not pre-fill their cannolis so the shell crisp and the filling creamy and cold. Perfect! Our server was very knowledgeable and professional. Excellent value too. Highly recommend.
