Beautiful view. Our poor waitress was responsible for 10 tables and was running everywhere. We felt rushed as a result because we had to order our drinks and meal all at once. Although we wanted to relax and take our time the food came out very quickly. Food was good, not great. Wine was very good.

This is the 2nd time we've been to Massimo's Italian. It's a beautiful restaurant and the food is absolutely amazing. The only reason I didn't give it full stars is because my daughter's beef tenderloin was VERY overcooked. She's a teen, and not a hardcore bloody meat fan, so she ordered it medium-well. It arrived very, very well-done, which was a shame for her first visit to a fancy restaurant. My husband had pasta Bolognese, and I had the salmon. Everything we had; appetizers, entrees, and dessert were all amazing. Just the beef was a bit of a let-down. Service was wonderful and the view is absolutely stunning. Thank you for a lovely evening!

Our dinner at massimos was amazing! We accidentally hit the hi top seating but the hostess was kind enough to seat us beside the window for a view of the falls. Our server Matthew was very kind and always made sure our drinks were filled, and the actual food was some of the best food I have ever had. Overall the best dining experience I’ve had in Niagara by far.

Very delightful evening! Very good food. Good service. Some nice Italian background music would be enjoyable.
It is a little on the pricey side. It is Niagara Falls though.

What a great restaurant! I would highly recommend the venue to anyone visiting Niagara Falls and wants to experience exceptional dining!

From the receptionist Melissa to our absolutely amazing server coach Rowen ( from Bath England ) we had a true delightful meal and experience. Highly recommended for the view of the Falls, outstanding cuisine, Massimo’s is a must dine event. Ask for Rowen , HE made our night one to remember and tell friends about. Bravo Rowen , bravo team at Massimo’s. Dr TLY Montréal

Need to pay to reserve your table but the amont is not deducted from your meal. The surprise is the bill... 144$ for 2 beers, 2 pasta dish ( fresh pasta but normal portion and nothing extravagant), 1 dessert and a terrible latte. And then need to add the tip!!! I'm italian and there's nothing italian there except maybe the chef and the name of the restaurant. If People think it's worth il, the obviously never had real italian food!

We had an AWESOME experience.
From how we were greeted, to how the meal ended.
Our server was amazing, and I wish I had his name. He assisted us in choosing a wine that went perfectly with our meal. He kindly brought test samples.
He was quick with water refills.
The food was simply delicious. We did the three course, with no regrets. I had the bruschetta and my wife had the house salad. Both scrumptious.
We both choose the rigatoni bolognese. It sounds so simple, but was so rich and flavored deeply. The wine paired perfectly, and he let us know that it is a local winery. We may stop and pick up a bottle or two.
I am not sure why people complain about the portion sizes. Everything was a decent size. I barely finished the pasta. We took the tiramisu to go, and the waiter graciously provided us with silverware, as we are staying in the same hotel.
The restaurant has an impressive view of both falls.
Really, our only small minor complaint, and I mean MINOR, is that it was just a little too dark.
As for the cost? No complaints. It's in a tourist trap, with significant taxes. It was so worth the money.
Massimo's was a wonderful choice for our anniversary.
I am sad that I cannot recall the waiter's name, but again, truly kind and knowledgeable (longer dark blond hair, so pass the feedback along).

We loved the view and the service. The meals were beautifully displayed. The lamb was tasty but not medium rare as asked. The chicken was overcooked, dry but still tasty. We were not rushed and really enjoyed our leisurely dinner.

The view was the best part of the experience. The food and service weren't poor, but didn't stand up to the restaurarant's billing as the #1 Italian restaurant in Niagara Falls.

The tortellini tasted like it was made from discount grocery store frozen section, so for $36 it was quite a ripoff. That being said, the drinks, service, and the view were spectacular. Not to mention it is convenient for those staying at the hotel.

Overall the place has a great view, great service and good variety of food.
The only problem, I had an issue with my stomach after eating lumb chops.
Spent the rest if the evening in toilet.
Until now, I feel slow and weak.
Might be I got some allergy of some ingrediences.
