“Ate here on our last night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The only problem about this place is that we discovered it on our last night in Sanur, so could only eat there once! Outside of Italy, this is the best traditional Italian food we have had anywhere, and the prices are so reasonable it's crazy!

“Outstanding vintage restaurants”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

Italian at its best, surely recommended as for you who looking for the real authentic homy Italian cooking. The chef Mr. Massimo wouldn't hesitate to come out and asking the guest about the food and have a like talk....great hospitality. The food is always Fantastic, i always eat here whenever i visit sanur area..and its always packed during dinner time 7-9pm so its better for you to booked the place in advance. Great Gellato ice cream as well :)

“Nice italian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

I like the place which is semi outdoor style. Beware of the mosquito bites since this is open to the small garden. The variety of the food & gelato are great! Spend the night with friends or couple there..I also got a surprised there..the nite of my birthday i got a cake with candle and birthday sings from the staff parade..Sublime!

“Good food poor service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

I went to massimo yesterday, I was alone....
Had to wait 10 min for a table as the resturant was full, waited in the bar with a bintang nice with frossen glasses.
I got a bad table just in the entry to the resturant so all the guests and staff had to walk past me, this tabel was availeble all the time when I was waiting to I dont know why I had to wait for it...

I orderd a starter bruschetta pomodore and a Pizza capriccosa with extra spicy salami.
after a while my glass was empty and as my table was just by the entrance to the restaurant all the staff was running past my table, witch was very anoying as they was actually running... But nobody noticed that I was sitting there waiting for my starter with a empty glass.

After a while i grabed on to one of the staff and asked for another beer.
20 min after my order a waiter came with the complimentary snack and one min later my bruschetta came.
Nothing to write home about, the bruschetta was ok had better.. so I eat my starter and some of the snack, tok about 10 min after i finished before a waiter came an cleard my table.
And about 20 min later my pizza finaly came!
The Pizza was very nice and autentic Italian perfectly made!
god food, slow staff and I did not feel that I got any service ...
I have had the capriccosa at another pizza place in sanure The village I will go there next time, better service and the pizza was better.

It cost me about 150.000

Every night after working hours I take time to read any message and comment from our guests.
I love my profession and give all my passion to the job.
I feel your comment is unfair as restaurant was very full (...as usual and as you wrote), therefore sometime we prefer to stop guests access (...empty table at entrance).
You do not explain clearly your consumption for the Rp 150.000 bill ...pizza capricciosa is just Rp 59.000 and beer Rp 19.500
As I love my job still feel sorry you could not enjoy your experience at Massimo.
