Dining in Massimo's restaurant is always as if you are coming home to a friends house. The center of his domain is the kitchen with some tables, then you sit on the terrace or in the dining room and wait for the riches or walk into the kitchen to check out the wares. It feels like we have been here a thousand times, and Massimo is always there to great us. Not a long menu like a traditional trattoria, the food always feels as if the first thing Massimo did that morning was go to the market to get fresh produce. No problem to come in late, no problem if he sits around talking at another table and forgets to pour more wine.
