Great place for dinner. Not great views or scenery given the location but don't let that deter you. Great, original pizza and the service was fantastic. Highly recommended!

thanks for the lovely review, just a bit of info re our location though - during daylight hours, f you are sitting outside or at table 6, you get a magnificent view of the Oranjekloof reserve at the Hout Bay side of Table mountain. : https://www.tripadvisor.co.za/ShowUserReviews-g312659-d7187433-r341106321-Table_Mountain_Treks_and_Tours_Day_Adventures-Cape_Town_Central_Western_Cape.html Of course at night, and inside that's not the case!

Outstanding pizzas, everything else very good. Staff were friendly, helpful & accommodating. It does get very, very busy, you are well advised to book, turning up on-spec is not recommended.

The customer service was engaging but maybe a tad forced. Not truly believable. Food was average, pizza very dry, pasta carbonara oily as the cream sauce had split. Tasty but not great. Unsure if I would return but not the worst....

Terrible! Was told that I have to wait 45 min for take away, and if customers come after me that booked, their food will have priority . I was told if I don't like it I must leave .

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

At no time did we tell you to wait 45 minutes, the owner explained that you may wait 30+ minutes for your order, but that it was the ‘worst case scenario’, however, you kept rudely insisting on having an exact waiting time. There were take-away orders and table orders in the queue before you, did you expect to jump that... More

This is one of those restaurants when you have had a long day on the beach and you want something hardy to eat. You enter and you feel the ambience of a great little eater. Stick to the varied choices of pizza which are cooked in front of you. This is there speciality so best to stick with it. Service... More

Our family of four adults found this restaurant perfect for a fun birthday meal. Doesn't mean to say this spacious, romantically lit venue isn't ideal for a loving couple to dine as well. We all know the recipe for a good pizza by now - thin, wood fired crust with standard toppings. My daughter had the seafood pasta which was... More

Here we are back again to the place with the best pizza anywhere I have ever eaten some anywhere in the world....welcoming hosts, woodturning pizza oven, sublime ingredients.....FABULOUS...and, for a small corkage you can bring your own wine. What I like is that Massimo's gives you the opportunity to buy pizza by the slice for R10 and once donations of... More

We visited Massimo's a few years ago and it was possibly the best pizza I had ever eaten. This time the food was OK, but the service was a bit slow and we had to chase drinks and were finally given the wrong bill. Disappointed, as it was our first meal after a 20+ hour journey.
