What a real gem of a place Massimo's is. Got there (having spent all day at World of Birds) for lunch and was a bit apprehensive. The staff was courteous and the owner was very friendly. We ordered, food came and than the magic started. Wow simply one of the best pizzas i have ever had. Kid friendly place (they... More

First visit since being recommended, I'd always thought it was just a pizza house, but no they have a good range of specials, including fresh fish, steak etc.. Plenty of space for children in their outside play area which keeps the restaurant reasonably kiddy clear.

We met up with family and had a wonderful evening. The restaurant was full and buzzing. The pizzas were great with their thin crusts.

You cant go wrong at Massimo's. This was not my first nor my last visit. Friendly service and the pizzas are really good. Thin base, fresh toppings and overall delicious. Its also family friendly, best you book. The only thing I dont get about Massimo's is why they would play a local radio station. Killing the vibe with constant advertisements... More

massimos_hb, Owner at Massimo's, responded to this review

thanks for the very nice review VintagePrincess1973, we agree about our pizzas. Background music is subjective - we've had comments from those who don't like opera (too Italian?)..don't like country & western (too non Italian?).....so it can be a difficult call. We like to support our new local radio station (magic 828 AM) but I understand fully how ads &... More

Convenient, clean and pleasant place to dine as a family or with friends. Kids play area outside. Not too pricy and not too noisy.

My husband and I stumbled across Massimo's one night when we used to live in Constantia, and ever since, it's been one of our favorite dinner spots in Cape Town! We go with friends all of the time. I promise you... They make the BEST pizza in the city! They also have great GF, vegetarian, and vegan options. (I just... More

The choice of Massimo's was to have a quick meal, not too late, due to our early start the next day. The reviews were all very positive. The actual location is about three miles out of Hout Bay in a small mall of shops. Parking was plentiful. The restaurant was half full and quite vibrant. Our meal selections could have... More

I'm married to a tricky Italian and we all thought that this was a really lovely meal - we were with friends (a party of 11 including 5 kids under the age of 10). Lovely relaxed atmosphere, lots to occupy the kids, good wine and great food. Service is very friendly but is a bit slow but we forgave it... More

A busy Friday night but as usual the service and food were impeccable and faultless. Chris, the head manager's attention to detail and understanding of the menu surpassed our expectations. We both tried new pizzas which were simply outstanding and our take away order arrived in time as we were paying our bill. Once again yet another outstanding Italian experience... More
