I have been to Massimo's numerous times and I am never disappointed. The atmosphere is romantic but still a great place to go with friends. The staff go above and beyond! The food is fantastic! I highly recommend!!!

One of the most romantic settings in New Hampshire! Massimo's is a real delight from the greeting you receive from Massimo when you walk down the stairs to the dinner served by 'old fashioned' real servers. The food is fantastic, the atmosphere over the top romantic and the entire evening a total delight. One of my very favorites north of Boston's North End.

After great experiences several years ago, I was looking forward to a return visit to Massimo this week. I am not sure if it was an off night or things have really changed but my experience was not good. Others in my party were disappointed with their food as well. I had undercooked pasta (including hard pieces) and less than tender meat in my Pappardelle. The temperature of the food was a little colder than I like and the seasoning wasn't distinctive.

Service was good. The ambiance is also still great. But man the food was disappointing.

Food was excellent. Service was good ( maybe a little slow but we were not in a hurry). Ambiance excellent. Owner very involved. Very busy place. Popular with locals.
