We went to Massimo for lunch and dinner as it was very close to where we were staying. The gelato shopfront is definitely a kid magnet and you can not miss it. Located at the distant corner of South Sanur, it attracted patrons from all across.

Seating : Massimo has a lot of seating capacity and surprisingly offers a smoking section, as well. However, be sure to reserve especially on weekends and supper, as it tends to get full. Average waiting time can stretch from 20 Min to a hour.

Menu : A vast menu, this restaurant practically covers all what Italian cuisine has to offer and then some.

Pricing : Here is the surprising fact, Massimo is extreme value for money compared to any other decent dining place we went to Sanur, compared to their quality and the variety on offer, their pricing was honest and real. Starters approximate 40 K rupiah with Mains from 50 to 80 K Rupiah.

Taste : We felt the food was a bit bland it could be that alternating between fiery curries and Italian food, this was bound to happen. However, the ingredients were fresh and overall a wholesome meal.

PS : The complimentary arancini itself will take care of part of your appetite hence be a bit easy on the ordering, the portions are humongous.

We were so glad our hosts in Bali took us to Massimo's. We had a fantastic evening here. The food was great. Right from the bread basket to the salad, pizza and the dessert were all outstanding. I really wanted to visit again but time did not permit it. It's also great value for money. The place is buzzing and one of the best in Sanur.

The restaurant is quite busy, which is always a good sign. The food is lovely. I went three times to this place if I didn't want to get local food. I can recommend the ice cream for dessert or when you pass this place by. They will let you taste some, so you can try before you pick your favorite.
