Not impressed by the restaurant and its food at all. The place that is air-conditioned is really small but that was not even the most important thing. I honestly expected the food to be much better for that price! Maybe the food looks Italian but it definitely does't taste like - at least not for that price!

Massimo is a serious life project. Each of the 120 employees come from villages without experience or high education. I build a team and teach every single one in food, beverage, service, team work.
They learn how to prepare daily fresh homemade pasta, bread, gelato, cheese. Any product you eat at Massimo is produced at Massimo with its unique taste. In addition we serve only authentic extra-virgin olive oil from cold pressed "coratine" olives to any meal and real "grana padano" parmesan cheese to top any pasta dishes.
Air-condition room is small but no additional charges ...just need to call and book your seat.
Prices are very honest for what we delivery to our customer. I love my job and teach the same love to any member of the Team.
I wish you thanks for your time with us.
Yours,
Massimo Sacco - Chef & Owner

In the 5 days we stayed in Sanur, we went to Massimo's 3 times; twice for dinner and once for lunch and gelati. Only problem is the choosing! SO many mouthwatering dishes - the pasta is homemade with so many varieties, made to a high standard and very reasonably priced considering this is a good/high quality restaurant. most pasta dishes are about $6 - $8 for a main serve! The pizzas are also authentic - love thinner type crust. The selection of gelati though is something to be seen to be believed!!! 48 choices of gelati!! Absolutely delicious and once again reasonably priced. About $2 for a big scoop or for 2 smaller scoops. A visit or stay in Sanur must include a meal or gelati at Massimos!

I’m sure many have said it before, but I’m going to add it here-best ice cream in town. Massimo offers 48 ice cream flavours from fruity through to 16 chocolate based creations. You get two flavours with a generous serving for Rp20,000/cup. Get the cup as it is better value. Make sure you line up to pay first then go choose your flavour. Your name will be called out. Lines can get long but be patient because it is well worth the wait. Flavours begin to run low around 9pm so get in before that!!!

The pizza served was really good. Friendly staff. Also a live band which was nice. If you want Spicy you can ask for the spicy pepper mix which you will remember later
