“Friendly owner + nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Very friendly owner encouraged us to get what he recommended - his choices was really good.
My favourite was Parmigiana di melanzane as appertizer (baked eggplant lasanga style)
Pizzas + pastas are classic, really worth trying - perfect value for money.
Can reserve a table online (google it) to get a discount - good motivation to go there first time.

“Amazing dishes with view of Dubai Marina Skyline”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

I visited a lot of restaurants in the last 5-6 years in Dubai. Finally I found that one which left me breathless. We ate that night wonderful starters like the burrata and an amazing shrimp cocktail. Main dishes were fresh pasta and fresh fish. The food was so fresh and so good, that after 1 week that I've been there , I still want more of massimos dishes.
We ended our dinner with an amazing chocolate cake with melted ice cream.
This is a place to be and to recommend to everybody. I will come more than once back.
Thank you Massimo for the great service.

“This restauant is worth getting Michelin stars! very delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

I liked this reastaurant much and will visit it every time when my family and I are in Dubai! Its cuisine is extremely delicious and worth getting Michelin star! really! Cant forgot its ravioli, buratta, etc etc etc). Nice atmosphere of this restaurnt is really great not only due to its location (in my favorite Dubai Marina) and chef but also due to hospitality of the staff. So, I recommend to all to go and enjoy there daytime or evening time. Having got home I found out that some my friends also have been and enjoyed in Massimo's restaurant in Dubai. I like that my friends have a good choice! ;-)

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

Went as a couple to this restaurant after reading previous reviews on this site. We were not disappointed. The food was of the highest quality, and my girlfriend commented that it was probably the best pasta dish she had ever had. She had the spaghetti fruits de mer. This is somewhere I would happily return to at any time.
