Birthday dinner/girl's night out started with an exceptional dining experience. Thank you for the wonderful service Sam, attentive and we never felt rushed or ignored. Every detail was just perfect. We'll be back!! Thank you for all you and the restaurant do, especially amid these difficult to manage times!! Grateful.
Every detail was amazing. Top to bottom. Couldn’t recommend this experience more!
It was a great time! The service was superior and food was excellent. I highly recommend!
Old school atmosphere.
Nice wine selection
Is our ultimate experience my wife and I indulge periodically.
It’s truly a treat and Massimo is always the most gracious host that for that moment makes you feel the most special guest there.
That is priceless!
Salmon special was overdone- next time will ask for medium doneness. Everything else was perfect!
The food, service, and atmosphere are so wonderful at Massimos. It’s our favorite place to go, we feel safe, love the bottles of sanitizer on the table also.
Ristorante Massimo has been a neighborhood gem in Portsmouth for many years. If you are looking for a special place, this is it.
Fabulous experience! Beautiful, quality food!!! Highly recommend!!!
Elegant yet relaxed atmosphere. Superb service. Knowledgeable staff. Outstanding flavors. Very comfortable romantic spot.
Very enjoyable evening. Bolognese was surprisingly light on flavor. Everything else was delicious. Cleanliness seems to be a priority. Felt very safe.
Delightful restaurant! Celebrated our anniversary there!
Always excellent- especially the tagliatelle carbonara & seared scallops! It is my go to for a special dinner in Portsmouth!!
As always, great Italian food, Fantastic service. Bit pricey,so reserve for a special night
After reading so many reviews on seacoast eats we decided to try Massimo on Wednesday for my husbands Birthday and it was as wonderful as all the reviews said. Our waitress Bonnie was so attentive, very knowledgeable with the menu and wine and had a wonderful personality. We tried the Brussel sprouts toped with oysters which was my favorite our adult kids loved the meatballs and my husband loved the fig caprese. The four of us then split carbonara since it seemed to be everyone's favorite on Seacoast eats and OMG it was amazing !!! 3 of us had the veal chop which was cooked to perfection and tasted amazing. My daughter had the Sunday gray and loved it :) Needless to say we had lots of leftovers:) I thought it was a very nice touch that the owner or manager went to every table to see how are food was. We can not wait to go back !!!!
Very nice atmosphere with great food and service. The drinks were also exceptional!
Great atmosphere and food! Server was friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!
We have been going there for over 20years. Massimo never disappoints.
Second time going and it was amazing!!! Thanks Massimo!
Our anniversary perfect setting
Fabulous spot. Massimo and staff never disappoint and for a romantic evening in Portsmouth you can't do better.
Teagan was an incredible server. Enjoyed our evening including pear salad , short rib gnocchi, monkfish and scallop entree and topped off with peanut butter bomb dessert. It’s a must.
Served by Sam who was amazing! Food sublime!
Great atmosphere and fantastic food. The carbonara is the best you will find anywhere.
Great place . Hands down the best Italian restaurant in NH . Risotto is definitely the best I have ever tried in the US . Hospitality is outstanding . Greetings and short conversations with the owner , Massimo , is making your experience is really very special .
Despite (or because maybe partly because of...?) a more limited menu than some, Massimo’s is head and shoulders above the other Italian restaurants in the area. Execution of the dishes is superb and substitutions are allowed. Value for money is reasonable or good if you take the quality of the food into account. The service is excellent and the delightful Massimo made a point of speaking to all of his guests to make sure that they were enjoying their meal and had everything they wanted. Taking all these points into consideration, Massimo’s is one of the very best restaurants of all types in the area.
From the moment we arrive we were greeted graciously and then seated and all of our needs were met with excellent service as well as the service of the sommelier. The food was better than I had expected and the desserts were marvelous
Best carbonara ever.
Exceptional Italian place very cozy with an extensive wine list.
Excellent food and service would definitely recommend
Massimo is the best restauranteur in Portsmouth. He is receptive, attentive and engaged. He's not sitting at the bar of his restaurant. He is on his game and it shows. Outstanding food, service and atmosphere!
Wonderful all the way around! Perfect night celebrating a 40th bit would go anytime! The carbonara was Amazing & the meatballs!!! Perfect
We had a great time, appetizers were delicious, their pasta is like what my grandmother used to make!
The owner was very accommodating to our children, he made them feel very special and we so appreciated that!
Consistantly top shelf. Owner-run restaurants are the best. Massimo makes it awesome every time.
Excellent food and service. Massimos always delivers
The food, service, and atmosphere was fantastic.
My favorite restaurant in Portsmouth NH. The food is amazing. The staff phenomenal.
We had a wonderful meal and we loved the atmosphere! We ate downstairs in a cozy brick alcove with a cute chandelier which felt romantic and fun. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious! Definitely will return in the future!
