Had supper with friends at Massimo. The atmosphere was nice, wait staff friendly and the meals were good. Overall a very nice evening. I will be going back in the future. It is not a have to place but it was nice.

As a regular visitor to Bali and in particular Sanur, my wife and I have a list of favourite restuarants we like to experience & enjoy.
We often walk past Massimo but this was our first (and most likley the only occasion) we will give it a go and was based on a recommendation from the sister in law who visited this venue a few months earlier.
To be honest, I did not find the food to be outstanding and for me, everything was too oily for my liking. I cannot remember what we ordered so obviously it did not leave a good impression.
In comparison to other restuarants which serve Italian food, I think Massimo is over rated. Cheers.

Very sorry to read your comment.
At Massimo we cook everything fresh and the only oil you may find is Italian extra-virgin that we use in some preparation.
At Massimo you can request any special diet and we cook according to guests need.
Hope you will give a chance to try again and introduce at your next visit.
Yours,
Massimo

We love the gelato! They have a very wide variety of choices. The taste is heavenly. And they are very generous with the portion. Been here a few time, but the last time was a little bit disappointing cause they gimme less than the usual portion. :( perhaps because the queue is so loooonnggg....

We have been to Bali many times and eaten at Massimo at least one time each visit. However the last meal we had there in November this year was to die for. The starters were unbelievable and the mains were even better. The prices are very reasonable. If you have a starter and mains I wish you well to finish sweets. This restaurant would beat if not match most italian restaurants in Perth. We have not been there for lunch or breakfast, but dinner is the best. You will not be disappointed.

Like many restaurants in Bali, the narrow frontage opens into a large and airy room with plenty of fans. At street level there is also a large Massimo Ice Cream bar with all sorts of yummy flavours which I also tried on another occasion.

Eating in at lunch, I ordered a pasta. It was a white and green Linguine with a rich blend of cheeses and an extremely generous addition of Prosciutto chunks. Service was friendly and prompt.

I really can't relate to the recent low ratings for this restaurant. JustI wish I'd had the time while in Sanur to try more of the delicious dishes on the menu.

HELP> I've just tried to give individual high ratings for service etc., and it will only light up the first dot, and automatically assigns the description ' terrible'. To whoever checks this before publication, can you please correct this? Each item deserves and excellent.

Thank you Linda.
I am trying to understand why those bad review without any previous complain in the restaurant.
I need to search for information thru TripAdvisor because something is not working correctly.
Look for to meet you soon.
