Really enjoyed the authentic Italian food one evening but as it was my first trip to Dubai I wasn't prepared for the fact that only non alcoholic beverage could be served. Maybe it would be idea to stock some good non-alcoholic wines? Great espresso to finish.............thanks

We stopped by this restaurant in the hopes we'd be served good Italian food. Carpacio is the cheapest quality yet priced at AED 55. After waiting over 45 minutes for our main course the food arrived cold. Apparently it was so cold in Dubai (at 27 degrees) that the reason is within the 5 seconds it was put on the... More

I've been living in Italy for the last 2 years and I'm in love with the food! Whilst in Dubai for a couple of days, I spent a great evening in this Italian restaurant with my husband and friends. Massimo and Franco, the owners, spent time with us chatting and introducing the restaurant specialties. It was all perfect! Even more... More

I tried different famous and expensive Italian restaurants in Dubai (since am Italian too) but none of them can be compared to Massimo's. First thing I appreciated was the friendly, calm and sophisticated environment. The menu is so Italian that u want to try everything! All the plates are traditional, simple, not complicated or new versions: this is the food... More

Really nice place to eat out. The food is amazing. We stayed one week in Dubai and went twice to Massimo's. We really recommend this Italian restaurant. Nice view over the water and skyline of the Marina. Massimo and his brother were really friendly and made this stay unforgettable.

I've been with my girlfriend, we are italians. Tripadvisor suggested it as it was 5 days we weren't eating well and I looked for an italian restauran You have to look for the place because they're doing some works on the roads and it's not so easy to find. But there is parking and you can arrive walking. Looking at... More

Love this great little restaurant by the water in our building at Park Islands. The food is so authentic and the staff are lovely. Keep it up guys, we'll be coming more and more now that the weather has cooled down so we can sit outside and enjoy the views!

Our first visit to this restaurant was in February. We had a wonderful dinner. The food was just amazing. We love pasta, but not any pasta. Massimo's surpassed our expectations. We loved the food and the ambience. When we visited Dubai in October for one day, we decided to have our lunch at Massimo's and enjoyed the the delicious food... More

The place is nice, nice outdoor. Not the best Italian in Dubai, but fair. The only one thing that really upset me was that price range is completely wrong on TripAdvisor. Prices are in line with the other restaurants, then why to state such a wrong information? It was not a good experience for me. Sadly.

Just yesterday I returned from a two week trip to Italy. I love this country, its culture, history, people and, of course, food. My husband and I visited a lot of places for lunch and dinner, but this time realized that unfortunately none of them impressed us as much as the Massimo’s Italian restaurant which we visited several times during...
