Best Italian Food

Every year we always look forward to Massimo's. Home made pasta, ceviche, salads and fish dishes. We have been coming for 8 years and every dish has been fantastic! Our favorite dishes are Al Pepe, Brandy Mushroom Fish dish, and as per my 10 year old son, the best pizza!

We tried this restaurant in 2013 and absolutely loved it! Dining with a Italian family of five we thought the food was outstanding. First Italian meal I've ever had in Mexico that tasted authentic. Service was excellent and we enjoyed the complimentary breadsticks and atmosphere. On our second visit we arrived very casually dressed with our young daughter. We drove... More

Ristorante Massismo is a solid Italian restaurant located in beautiful Puerto Aventuras marina beside the dolphin enclosure. We got there early, sat outside and watched the dolphins jump while enjoyed our dinners. Most of the pasta is hand made so I ordered the pappardelle with mushrooms and bacon, my wife had the seafood fettucini and our boys had pizza and... More

We made our annual trip to Puerto Aventuras this year to see what's changed and what hasn't. This is a great place to go to walk around before dinner as there is usually a dolphin show going on or the dolphins are just having fun in the water, the many other water creatures are around and about, with even some...

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 Puerto Aventuras restaurant.

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
