I have never been here for dinner so this is just a lunch review. Hout Bay is very blessed to have many great spots to eat and massimo's is one of the "hidden" gems and I say that as it is difficult to find tucked away behind the friendly spar. Find it you must as it will no doubt be... More

A wonderful setting (the road's a little dark, I'd recommend an Uber even if you're only drinking 1 glass) with a fabulous menu... think you could spend years working through the pizzas alone. The pizza base is crispy and delicious, I had one with aubergine which was spectacular. With a canopy of stars above, it's a memorable setting for a... More

We have eaten here a number of times over the last few years. This is a charming restaurant serving great comfort food. The starters are delicious as are the pastas and pizzas.The pizza bases are wafer thin and are the base of a delicious pizza. That You are made to feel hugely welcome and have no feeling of time pressure... More

Great place for dinner. Not great views or scenery given the location but don't let that deter you. Great, original pizza and the service was fantastic. Highly recommended!

thanks for the lovely review, just a bit of info re our location though - during daylight hours, f you are sitting outside or at table 6, you get a magnificent view of the Oranjekloof reserve at the Hout Bay side of Table mountain. : https://www.tripadvisor.co.za/ShowUserReviews-g312659-d7187433-r341106321-Table_Mountain_Treks_and_Tours_Day_Adventures-Cape_Town_Central_Western_Cape.html Of course at night, and inside that's not the case!

Outstanding pizzas, everything else very good. Staff were friendly, helpful & accommodating. It does get very, very busy, you are well advised to book, turning up on-spec is not recommended.

The customer service was engaging but maybe a tad forced. Not truly believable. Food was average, pizza very dry, pasta carbonara oily as the cream sauce had split. Tasty but not great. Unsure if I would return but not the worst....

Terrible! Was told that I have to wait 45 min for take away, and if customers come after me that booked, their food will have priority . I was told if I don't like it I must leave .

massimos_hb, Owner at Massimo's, responded to this review

At no time did we tell you to wait 45 minutes, the owner explained that you may wait 30+ minutes for your order, but that it was the ‘worst case scenario’, however, you kept rudely insisting on having an exact waiting time. There were take-away orders and table orders in the queue before you, did you expect to jump that... More

This is one of those restaurants when you have had a long day on the beach and you want something hardy to eat. You enter and you feel the ambience of a great little eater. Stick to the varied choices of pizza which are cooked in front of you. This is there speciality so best to stick with it. Service... More
