Stopped in for lunch with a family member and baby. There were at least three other mothers with babies there. A very cozy and pleasant environment with room for everyone. We shared the soprano Panini and a caesar salad and they were both delicious. And...More

The best gelato around is at Massa, and they're always making new flavors which keeps us coming back for more. Of course they have the staples, like chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, nocciola (hazelnut), pistachio, and several others. I normally get the nocciola, but always get at...More

Summer is in or outside al fresco. I have also had Italian dishes there but, it is casual dining with a TV so people watch sports inside. It's small and not intimate, so, expect a diner type of experience.

Pasta dishes are decent but not spectacular. Gelato on the other hand is really outstanding. Reminds me of gelato we've had in Italy.

The homemade gelato is great, but that's now what keeps me coming back to Massa in Elmwood Park. Their made-to-order panini are just amazing. The combination of the ingredients really go well together. My favorite is probably the Primo (grilled chicken, avocado, pesto mayo, swiss...More
