"Relaxing wonderful brunch"

This was a completely different brunch in the fact that you were served at the table. We were given a menu with approximately 25 items on it. You could have 6 of one or all 25 items. We were unsure what to have so the very helpful waiter suggested we left it to him. We had 24 small courses shared... read more

We went first in January for the Friday brunch and had a fantastic time, so much so we have been back 2 more times. The menu changes slightly each time which keeps it interesting. Unfortunately, the last time we went earlier this month (March) there was only 2 tables in restaurant and still the service was poor. An hour before... More

Dear Billyiever, we are very sorry and indeed surprised to read your comment on our Brunch, although glad that you liked it enough to come back few times. I'm trying to understand what went on so that we can insure it will never happen again and I wonder if there is a bit of confusion on the timing as they... More

Nice Italian Restaurant, I loved the decor, the service, and the food. Chef Suzy is doing a great job in maintaining the Mediterranean taste as authentic as possible. Oh! and a great wine list too.

Whenever I get to Bahrain, one of the restaurants I always visit is Masso! Food never disappoints. However this time just a suggestion for the Chef....the crusted salmon with spinach with good however it really needed some sauce to go wit it. Also though we realized that it was a Thursday they made it quite clear they needed to turn... More

Love this place. It's not just the food, it's the decor, the table linen, good house beverages, etc. The friendly service makes Masso and Chef Suzy a sure winner.

We had a beautiful meal at Masso's last night and enjoyed every moment of the whole experience. The service was superb, a rarity in Bahrain, and we will definitely be coming back soon. Thank you Chef Suzy and all your team, you're doing an amazing job!

Not always the above two things are found together, unfortunately. At Masso Mrs. Susy Massetti runs the restaurant as a superb master chef. I must congratulate for the excellence in cooking as well as in everything else. Last but not least she was born in the same province (Brescia), as me.
