One of the party ordered a pizza which was so bare it looked like a foccacia and the avo was not ripe. My ravioli was tasteless and looked unappetising. The other two ordered mussels and tuna which were... More

Hi Claire We find this review disproportionate to the actual events and awarding us 1 star in the review does not reflect the group’s experience as a whole as I see the mussels and tuna were enjoyed. When your friend spoke to the manager, 3 issues were mentioned: 1. ‘Everything on the pizza is cold’ - the pizza that was... More

DARG (our local animal rescue organisation)... More

What we had was lovely and the place was busy with eaters and take awayers (many locals). It is nice to see the owner (Massimo) and his wife taking an active part in the restaurant. We would...

Eight of us went to Massimos for a birthday celebration and we had a great fun night. We had booked in advance and a good job to...the place was packed. We also took our own birthday cake and balloons which they were happy to accommodate. Half the party were vegetarian but there was no shortage of veggie options. There is... More

The pizza is made in a wood burning oven. Thin crust with delicious available toppings. I have not had a pizza this good in Italy or anywhere else for that matter. Service is very friendly and good casual atmosphere. A great find

Dinner with a friend during the week , casual Thursday night but it was almost at full capacity! It definitely has a reputation . Service was good , pizza was great but very expensive! You might need to book before hand
