I returned to GDL in July and ate at Da Massimo twice, once as take out and once for dining in. The take out, the eggplant parmesan, a house specialty, was good, but a bit on the salty side. Not quite up to the quality of the first time I had it. On our in 'house' visit the meal was... More

Champagne lunch with friends. The decor was charming. The service was great but it was not real busy. We had speck and bruschetta for starters. The girls all told me they liked their pasta and fish. My gnocchi were homemade good but not perfect.

This restaurant in next door to our hotel - a pleasant surprise! A dined here on a Saturday, arriving about 7:30. Several tables of 2-4 were finishing late lunches, early dinners. We ordered from the extensive wine list, a nice chianti and the lobster appetizer - perfect for sharing. They're closer to Xtra large prawns, split lengthwise and grilled, about... More

The food is always delicious, the service is always excellent and the owners' presence give the restaurant and added bonus - one feels that they are going to eat at a friend's home. Highly recommend!

We enjoyed a delightful meal at Da Massimo. The complimentary flat bread pizza was a nice start to a very good meal. The pasta carbonara was good and the fresh pasta really made it special. The beef carpaccio starter was very nice along with the fresh hot bread basket. The rib steaks some of our group dined on was very... More

Though we have been going to "Da Massimo's" for a number of years, we have only recently discovered their Bacalauo or of all things, fresh cod fish. It is the most buttery, melt-in-your-mouth fish I have ever enjoyed, bar none! Usually our whole table orders it every time we go, which is fairly often considering we live in Ajijic. We... More

Da Massimo is a wonderful Italian restaurant in Guadalajara. The pasta is homemade and the service is very good. Mexico is not just about Mexican food, it's about excellent dining and this is a great example.

Food is excellent. Service very good too. Attended by owners. They have lots of specialties. Homemade pasta. They have good proper creations and it is not expensive. The menu isn't very long, which secures the good quality. Nice family atmophere!!! Give it a try, you wont regret.
