Ate at massimo's on a date night, the food was good and the atmosphere and service were up to par. We enjoyed the menu selection, would definitely recommend... we will be back again.

“Friday night date”
Reviewed 15 March 2014 via mobile

Service was personable and excellent. Atmosphere is relaxed, with an open setting. Specials sounded great, but on a Friday night during Lent, meat was not one of our choices. Our salads were very good and generous. Wine reasonably priced ( too reasonable, we went through a bottle and a half of souave ). My mussels with linguine was excellant, a generous portion with the linguine appropriately al dent. Wife's shrimp was buried under her linguine. It was "flamed", a cooking method we're not familiar with. It was definitely over cooked.
Deserts (two small canolis and a lemon sorbet) were definitely back in the excellent range.

“southern viewpoint”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

we visited bangor in august 2013, hard to find for out of towners even with gps, parking was difficult to locate, however the food and staff made up for all the effort to find this restaurant one of the best italian meals we have had in years, including those in new york, the staff was very friendly and helpful to understand how they prepare the food. very relaxing atmosphere on a very busy night. somewhat pricey but our group felt worth the price. would recommend that out of towners try this facility..

“Still a wonderful place for good food and service”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

First off, Massimo's is responsible for the restaurant boom n Bangor. Massimo and Anne Marie Ranni proved that a good restaurant would attract customers who would become regular patrons. We had dinner there a few nights ago. We settled on two dishes, one was an appetizer of the steamed PEI mussels as a main course, and the other was pollo allo Massimo. The mussels were enough for a meal and were served in a wonderful tomato based sauce. Pefect with the home-made bread that they serve. The chicken was among the best I have ever had, juicy, tender, stuffed with spinach,and a great sauce. The wine was great, the service was great, the whole evening was a delight.
