We have been coming to Puerto Aventuras for the last handful of years and have tried many of the restaurants this 'Jewel of the Mayan' has to offer. We had not yet been to Massimo, an Italian fare that we had heard delivered the atmosphere and quality one would expect for a special dinner on Valentine's Day

And deliver it did, with excellent meals for our party of 6. While five of us had a variety of pasta dishes, the sixth enjoyed the "Catch of the Day". All were thrilled with the meals we received. The atmosphere at Massimo is romantic in this outdoor eatery. Nice linen table clothes, candles and an attentive staff served up a wonderful experience. It's a definite go to for a special occasion or when Italian is the only thing on your mind for dinner.

During our 2 week stay in PA, we ate at Massimo 4 times. We enjoyed this place a lot. Classy athmosphere and good service staff. The first time, we were not very hungry, so we ordered the least expensive items on the menu: the arabiata penne and the alfredo farfales. Portions were not huge but they were excellent. We ended up not being able to order anything else during our next visits, as these dishes were so good.

The only minus, the beer was never cold enough, otherwise, I recommend highly.

Massimo is a great opportunity to escape from the Mexican cuisine in Puerto…wine was excellent as was the beef carpachio. Pizza was great as well! Romantic setting just off the marina, and was perfect for super Italian food!

By far the best food and best value in Puerto Aventuras. The staff is attentive. The only thing lacking is the personal touch by the owner who seems to want to avoid rather than engage his customers. However for a nice Puerto dinner it is Massimo

One of my top three food experiences in Mexico! A very cozy little italian restaurant with no more than 6-7 tables. When we came the restaurant was full, but they ran and got an extra table that they set up for us. The service was top notch and both the appetizer and the pizza was sooo good!! If you visit PA Go there!!
