This is the best Italian food I have ever had in my life. I come from an Italian family and have been all over Italy, and I have still never tasted Italian food this mouthwatering. After dining at Il Maestro several times, I always find myself so pleasantly surprised about how wonderful the food tastes. The chef incorporates homemade Italian... More

Serve was good, the waitress offered to take back my meal,however always afraid to send a meal back. atmosphere is nice. We have eaten here several times and always thought the food was exceptional. The last time we ate at Il Maestro was average but thought it was a fluke. Tonight two out of three meals did not measure up... More

We went there on the Sunday night before Labor Day. We had a reservation for four and the couple we were with had been there several times. We had been there last year. The service was poor. We waited about 10 minutes to give our order. Then it fell apart completely. We waited an hour to get our meal. And... More

Dear customer, I feel the need to set some things straight. Let me start off with the fact that you called to make your reservation 5 min before you arrived at the restaurant, at which point the person who answered the phone had advised you that there was a 15min wait. Making a reservation when you're ready to pull into... More

Always loved this restaurant nothing has changed still great!!! Loved the homemade sausage, homemade bread, pasta excellent, thought the Caeser salad was good but a little over priced, everything else I wouldn't change a bit, wish they were open for lunch

A tour group I had organized was scheduled for dinner at an Italian restaurant in Hyannis. The restaurant we had booked called to report that they had to close temporarily due to a kitchen fire. In a panic, I contacted Il Maestro Ristorante also in Hyannis and the chef-owner Mike could not have been more cooperation or more helpful.. He... More

Enjoyed a fabulous dinner with friends. The anti pasta was a perfect choice for the three of us to share and a great complement to the crusty bread and olive oil. Expect to take your time and enjoy your evening over a fantastic meal - just like when in Italy - the conversation lingers over the courses and you're having... More

We have been going to Il Maestro since the 1980's. We have never, ever had a bad meal at this restaurant at either location. It is one of our favorite places to dine out on Cape Cod. We have lived on the Cape since the early 1970's and we have been to many, many restaurants as we dine out frequently.... More

We got there early and for over one and a half hours no one else came in the door. The bruchetta was attractive but mushy. And our disappointment continued with the dry and wilted salad which was very unappetizing. Did not appear to have been cleaned and because of that, obviously,had no crispness to it. One of us had veal... More

I've been eating here with my family for years. Great family owned place and recipes. Fantastic veal parm and lasagna. Always fresh and delicious. Reservations recommended.
