We had a tough time finding the restaurant location. Our map navigation brought us to the restaurant address. However, the restaurant is located at the 13th floor of the building and there’s no indication at the ground level for that. Also the restaurant website should direct guests what parking to use as there are couple of parkings in the area and the guest aren’t sure where to park.

Great dining experience. Had a beautiful view of the falls. Our server Rowan was second to none. He made the evening fun and was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Restaurant was short staffed. Lamb was very cold. Carbonara was way overcooked, was more like an Alfredo. Drinks took forever to be made. 10-15 minute wait per drink. Our server was amazing. Felt bad for him because he kept apologizing to us for the delay in receiving our items. Manager took the Lamb off of the bill. I definitely would not return though.

Food is priced high, but quality is so average. I guess you mainly pay for the view here, but we didn't get window seat even though we said we don't mind waiting. So what did I pay for? Ah well.

Our server was amazing. The food is terrible and extremely over priced for the portion size, almost felt like it came out a box and heated up. The lighting in the place reminded me of red light district in Amsterdam. Overall bad experience. Would not recommend to anyone.

Server not very attentive especially since it wasn’t busy. Feel there should have been more room between us and the people seated too close to us for Covid. Food was OK but for the price was not worth it

Food was ok but not to be confused with fine dining. The meal was extremely overpriced. We notified them while booking using Open Table that we were celebrating a birthday but the staff did not care to acknowledge it during our visit. Overall all but the fabulous view was disappointing.

I would never suggest anyone to Massimo's Italian fallsview restaurant. The poor servers had way too many tables to look after. The over priced food was horrible. Order the calamari which came with a chipotle dip, the combination was gross. For our main we ordered the shrimp linguini which lacked any kind of flavor, and the tortellini was under cooked and pilled high with little sauce on the plate. The only thing that saved the evening was the view of the falls because our last shred of hope with an order of the tiramisu fell short!

We were very disappointed in the food and ambience at Mossimo's. My dinner (chicken was completely dried out. My husband had to send his Beef tenderloin back because it was not cooked to his liking and it was cold. Undenounced to us for returning his plate we were charged an additional $10.00 for his meal??

I held an awards ceremony back in February of this year at Mossimo's and the ambience, food, experience were all on point!

This is why I booked to come back to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Very disappointing.

We visited this venue a few years ago and loved it.
Now the food was not as good as before. We ordered the beef tenderloin. Seemed like it was frozen and reheated.

Chose Massimo’s to celebrate my 50th birthday. Our waiter was Christian and he was wonderful! One of my guests is a very picky eater and asked for some deletions in her side dishes and she was accommodated very well. Everyone was very happy with their meal choices and we were all very surprised at the size of the dishes when they came out (they were bigger portions than expected, especially in Niagara).
Specifically, we ordered the calamari, Caesar salad, and the beef tenderloin. Everything was exceptional!!! Cheesecake for dessert and we had to take the slices with us because we were too full.
Love this place and will definitely be back.

Lighting I found just a tad too dark. Was almost to the point that we couldn't see our food.

Great selection of wines.

Arrived on time our table was ready by the window overlay the falls it was lovely !!
The server Tony was very pleasant and helped us choose the wine but was sent home after serving our wine and taking our food order because it wasn’t busy.Our next waiter was Anthony who was also very pleasant and checked on us several times.
Unfortunately some of the food we order wasn’t up to par and way too expensive!!!
The calamari was like rubber lots of chewing and the vegetables were hard had to cut the beans with a knife .
The salmon was ok tasted better .
The chocolate cheesecake was like store bought with some nuts on the side .Not presented very well .
The wind was the best of the whole experience.
Won’t come back again.

We decided to go to Massimo's the first night in Niagara Falls as it was at the hotel.

As soon as we arrived, we felt well taken care of. The host brought us to our table, explaining the safety precautions they have in place to reduce/prevent Covid-19 spread. She was pleasant, professional and we enjoyed talking to her.

Our waiter, Rowen, was excellent. He was knowledgable, professional, recommended food/wine pairing, and an excellent conversationalist. He even had me try ice wine (which I don't tend to like) and explained how it is complimentary to the entire meal as an aperitif.

The food was delicious. We love charcuterie, and often order a board from wherever we go. The charcuterie board at Massimo's was delicious and had numerous cheeses, meats and pickles to try. I definitely would order this again! We also enjoyed beef carpaccio, which complimented the charcuterie board perfectly.

For dinner, I had the lamb and my husband had beef tenderloin. Both meals were excellent. They were flavourful, tender, and filling! The wine we each had with our meals complimented the flavours of the lamb and beef.

For dessert, we shared the cheesecake. It was yummy! I was full after the meal, so I didn't think I would have more than 1 bite, but it was so good, I almost finished the dessert by myself .

I would definitely recommend Massimo's for a romantic dinner or for a foodie. The whole experience was awesome and we would go back again for another wonderful experience.
