Good Italian Food

Most of Massimo's pasta is made in house. They offer quite a large selection of sauces to go with ones pasta choice. Individual brick oven pizzas also available, as well as, meat, chicken or fish entrées. Reservations are recommended for special occasions and Saturday nights. Very popular... read more

We have eaten at Massimo twice so far, and will eat there again this trip. We had the pasta, which was wonderful and tried the pizza which was very good, thin crust, fresh ingredients. Service was best in town. The chairs had good pads, something not mentioned but very appreciated. All and all a very good dining experience. We will... More

I am Italian and well-aware that I am making the following statement. Yes, I did have some of the best pasta I have ever tasted while traveling to Mexico at Massimo! Their claim of fresh hand-made pasta is very real. For Italian fare, this hits the spot. I highly recommend their cream sauces (of many different varieties) which add a... More

This an Italian restaurant in the village/marina that was absolutely our best meal during our one week stay in Puerto Aventuras this past week. We ordered the caprese salad as an appetizer to share among all four of us and it was more than enough - and delicious and fresh with plenty of julieened fresh basil. Pasta was all homemade... More

I brought my family for supper here and although the home made pasta I had was quite tasty, the other meals were heavily salted, to the point of inedible. There is another Italian restaurant in the square that might be a better choice.

We were seated promptly, but took about 30 minutes just to get menus - while several others who were sat had bread, drinks and menus.The Italian appetizers - meats and cheeses were fabulous. The meals - were mixed reviews mostly... More

We ordered two dishes to go - Spaghetti Bolognese and Pasta Primavera. Both were excellent. We meant to return for a meal at the restaurant but weren't able to get the chance before we left - but the next time we go down we will definitely eat here. Service was very fast and very good. If you choose to eat... More
