Myself and 3 friends have been going to Innisbrook on a golf vacation for over 20 years. We've been dining at Massimo's every year for the last 6 years. We looked forward to it. Massimo's seems to be slipping the last few years. Service is average and the food matches the service. I don't think we will head back next... More

We were staying at Innisbrook Resort a few miles north and this was one of the restaurants recommended by the Resort. It is set back in a strip center off HWY 19. Three of us had a delicious dinner there this past week. Service and food were excellent, and prices reasonable.

Exceptional wine list that has many offerings to match the excellent food choices. Sauces with appetizers & entrees were exceptional. Veal w/Cognac sauce excelled. Jennifer offered excellent service. Massimo not only makes himself available to the house, but attends to the kitchen in a timely manner, thus providing competent direction to kitchen staff, while greeting diners. Highly recommend Massimo's for... More

Happen to stop in without a reservation at Massimo's. We were able to sit at the bar and with Jennifer and she was such pleasure. We meet Massimo himself and what a friendly guy, so delightful! The dinner was far past our expectations and we are planning to come back again.

The on-line menu looks small but there are usually a large number of specials so that the choice is wide and varied. The food is very good to excellent and service is attentive. Prices are higher than most restaurants in the area but not unreasonable for a night out.

We had a 5:30 reservation but was unable to keep it. Phoned in ahead and asked if we could get squeezed in later. Changed to 8 pm without a problem. Welcomed and seated promptly upon arrival. Menu was very attractive in its offerings and descriptions, Service was attentive but unobtrusive. Nice ambience, not too dark. Candles at the table surrounded... More

I have to say the food was very, very good but the service wasn't. We order Cesar Salad and the Duck for and appetizer. Sparkling Water, Coke and 2 pots of... More

Nestled in an out of the way strip mall is one of the best restaurants in the Tampa Bay area. The restaurant is somewhat small, but cozy and relatively quiet even when filled. Service if stellar. The wine list is extensive and a bit pricey as are the excellent and well prepared cocktails. The menu is varied and everything our... More

If you're looking for a quiet, romantic event, come here. It's dark, but not too, and reasonably quiet. The menu is great, the wine list is exceptional, and even if you don't like Tiramisu?...save room for it. He's won many awards with his recipe.

Description
Join Chef Massimo for an artful blend of Italian and Mediterranean cuisines paired with an award winning wine list and full bar. Appetizers range from Hudson Valley Grade-A Foie Gras, Pistachio coated Pan Seared Duck and Brie to Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes and rice flour battered calamari. A rich, creamy lobster bisque is a favorite among customers. Other specialties include Veal Cognac in a creamy truffle sauce, veal chop, sweetbreads, risotto and Chilean Sea Bass. Last, but not least, are the homemade delectable desserts. Complementing his efforts in the kitchen is the gracious, knowledgeable and efficient staff. Tables at the casually elegant restaurant are dressed with crisp table linens, and candles. Cascading fountains decorate the walls.
