Always wanted to eat here after walking by many times on Penhallow with my young kids who eat a steady diet of pasta & butter
Finally, just my wife and I last week. They recommended table #8 when my on line note said it was our anniversary. Yeah. They were right. #8 is an intimate little alcoved table for two. Perfect. Service was perfect. Food of a higher order than just about everything else out there. A la carte menu with traditional antipasti, primi, secondi and dolce. My octopus primi was grilled perfectly and presented beautifully. My wife’s lobster Gnocchi again perfect. Many of the pasta dishes can be had as smaller plates. That smaller portion was perfect! The winner was my veal chop dead on medium rare with roasted halved brussel sprouts. The best I’ve ever had. Not even close.
Desserts were exquisite.
The dining room seating is subterranean and you would be hard pressed to think you weren’t in the old country.
For all this you pay and pay quite a bit. If I had any detracting comments it would be the value for the dollar. Food, service and ambiance of this caliber costs. Special occasions then for us. My dad always said that people that can will always pay out of proportion for excellent quality. That pretty much explains our Massimo experience. We will be back. Thankfully no pasta with butter not on the menu.
