5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

If you are looking for an outstanding meal in Sanur you can't go past Massimo.i was fortunate enough to meet Massimo this visit and the passion this man has about his food and customers is second to none that i have seen. it will pay to book in advance as this place is very popular and for a good reason, the food and service. i can't speak highly enough about Massimo's a must visit when in Sanur.

“Loves Gelato”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

I love the variety of gelato flavours. Pizzas are great. Went there for my son's birthday. Better make a reservation before visiting. The restaurant is almost full everyday.

“A Sanur Institution”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2014

Massimo is a rare find in the ever-changing restaurant industry of Bali. Consistently great food, fantastic produce and a great atmosphere. The pizzas are outstanding, and better than I've had anywhere outside of Italy. The regional specialties are delectable, and with such a varied menu, there is something for everyone.

“Shaky start but solid finish.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

After several false starts we were finally able to book ahead to eat at Massimos the following evening. My son and his girlfriend called in to change the time only to find there was no booking at all. Following another visit to clarify we were offered yet another booking and arrived at the restaurant not really expecting to be seated.
I was 'over it' and would have been happy to again go elsewhere but persevered and was generally happy with the food.The 'flashback' entree was a little 70's prawn cocktail but tasty enough. My steak was good not sensational. I rarely eat desert but couldn't resist choosing four ice cream flavours from the street-front bar. Absolutely delicious, simple and the pick of the courses. Service is incredibly slow waiting over an hour for entree is not acceptable even considering 'Bali-time'. The staff are brilliant but struggle with the low speed kitchen. Atmosphere is generally fine but the place could do with some air-con as it is a little stuffy.

The next day my sons/nieces had pizza and it was reportedly fantastic.

We booked our last evening in Bali at Massimo's and all seven of us had good meals.

Personally I enjoyed my meals at Massimo's. They were solid without being great however I am spoiled coming from the Italian Restaurant capital of the world in Melbourne Australia.
