Massimo's makes a delicious thin crust Italian pizza with fresh ingredients served piping hot. Our salads were ample and crisp and fresh, served with an assortment bread sticks and olive oil. Everything was tasty and the service was great very attentive, but not obtrusive. The décor is charming with candlelit tables covred in the traditional red and white checkered table... More

After 6 years, still turning out the best food in Puerto Aventuras. Massimo's attention to detail is tasted in every dish. On this trip I found his CAPELETTI in BROTH soup the best I ever had.

Lovely little restaurant in PA! We ate here the second night of our trip because of all the great reviews on Trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed! Great atmosphere, great views, great service, great food! Will definitely go back the next time we're in PA! Don't miss this place!

We live in PA during the winter, so we have the opportunity to go Massimo's many times. The fish is always prepared perfectly. Toasty but light. The spinach is also excellent. The ambience is relaxing.

We had dinner here one night during our stay in Puerto Aventuras. Everything from the food to the service was excellent. Since Puerto Aventuras is a gated community the restaurants are more expensive then usual. But we found Massimo to be reasonably priced for the quality that you are receiving.

We had 8 of us and had an amazing night. All our nights have been terrific in PA. Your village and town is priceless. You truly deserve your #1 ranking. Drinks could be cheaper. Your new LaCrescent, MN friends.

We have eaten here before and love the ravioli. The atmosphere is great getting to wathc the dolphin show and such, but our feeling is a bit pricey for the servings.

We've eaten here several times. First time I've written a review. Puerto Aventuras is a delightful place to visit. Lots of places to walk, shops to visit and sites to see. To fine a great restaurant was the icing on the cake. At first glance you can't tell how good the restaurant will be with it's open area, red checked... More

We have been coming to Puerto Aventuras for the last handful of years and have tried many of the restaurants this 'Jewel of the Mayan' has to offer. We had not yet been to Massimo, an Italian fare that we had heard delivered the atmosphere and quality one would expect for a special dinner on Valentine's Day And deliver it... More
