Delicious, authentic, Italian food enjoyed by the whole family, including our two children who were well catered for by a kiddies menu. Pizzas and pasta were very nicely prepared and my chocolate cup desert was something out of the ordinary. Would highly recommend a visit.

Excellent pizzas hence the very good rating. Other options are decent but less exciting. Very busy spot and the kitchen is disorganised so food delivery is very unpredictable. You might get fed quickly or wait an age and have appetisers and pizzas all turn up...More

Friendly staff, the pizzas were ok, not stunning, good to have a gluten free option. We did have slow service.

Food was good... Wish the service was on par. Restaurant was basically empty and we were served without cutlery. The reception and waitrons were especially inattentive. Would rather go somewhere else next time.

thanks for the review. We did have staffing challenges over the Christmas period, but we do acknowledge your comments about service. We have used this as a training opportunity to ensure staff are fully aware of such oversights.

Massimo's is a great place for pizza cooked on a wood fired oven. It has a laid back casual atmosphere. The service was good and it was fun to watch the staff cooking the pizzas.

There are two things that make our meals at Massimo's very enjoyable. 1. The food is authentic and the best Italian food I've had in S.A. 2. Being served by warm, friendly and accommodating people. Add a fantastic atmosphere as well as owners who have...More
