“Best pizzas in Cape Town”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 via mobile

We were spoilt with a perfect Cape Town winter's day today and on the lookout for family friendly restaurants (as relatively new parents) we chose an outdoor table at massimo's! Well, we couldn't have had a nicer or more relaxed meal with a freshly scrubbed, pristine high chair for our little one year old and, without doubt, the finest pizzas in Cape Town, if not South Africa. Our waitress, Feziwe, was friendly and caring and our whole experience was world class! Thank you Massimo's!

“An Italian Feast”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

What puts Massimo's way above the average Italian restaurant in South Africa is the quality of their ingredients, yet their prices are very competitive. If you are eating out in a group of around 8 people I can highly recommend the Italian Feast (see www.pizzaclub.co.za/italian-feast). We were served a never ending array of delicious antipasti and pizzas without having to worry about what to choose (then having order envy later), which was completely relaxing and lots of fun. Our non-Italian waitress announced the arrival of each new dish with Italian flair and explained what all the dishes were. We tasted some foods we would never have thought of ordering - like deep-fried polenta squares (divine), and cauliflower on a pizza with just the right amount of garlic & chilli - voted by all 7 of us as completely delicious. When we were finally ready to call it quits, one more pizza arrived and our groans of "no more" made the staff smile with satisfaction! Since I had booked the Italian Feast as a birthday celebration, I was offered the option of ordering one of six different birthday cakes in place of dessert. I chose the first cake on the list - dark chocolate fudge made with 72% dark chocolate. It satisfied my chocolate craving for quite some time! I now need to return for 5 more birthdays in order to try the remaining 5 flavours. Other positive aspects commented on by my friends were the warmth and friendliness of the staff, and the standard of cleanliness in the open-plan pizza kitchen.

“Favourite restaurant in Cape Town!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Massimo's is a wonderful pizzeria and Italian restaurant. Fantastic pizzas, salads and Italian specialities. Best of all is the great service, friendly staff and personal welcome by owners Tracy and Massimo. A great night out - whether for families, special occasions or dinner for two - we love this place, our favourite restaurant in Cape Town!

“Massimo's - a must if you want the best pizza in the Bay.”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

A great menu of pizza and pasta. A different selection and definitely not your normal pizza selection. This is pizza 'done right'. Great vibe and a real treat to visit. Thanks Massimo and Tracey.
