We have eaten several dishes at Massimos; often drop by for your spaghetti and a bottle of your house wine. It's as if we are in Italy. Massimo is our favorite restaurant to bring guests. They are always impressed and we get another great meal.
Such an amazing dish! My go to every time we eat here! My husband and I have never had a bad dish!
We dine at massimo's frequently. We love all of the traditional dishes and occasionally one of the specialties. I have a sensitivity to garlic and most dishes can be made with that accommodation. The chicken Marsala has a subtle flavor, rich with mushrooms. One of my favorites. Love the consistent service.
Quaint restaurant with warm and welcoming environment. Friendly staff. My dinner--the Halibut Puttanesca--was absolutely delicious! The mildly sweet and moist halibut was perfectly prepared in a rich tomato sauce that was full of flavor and loaded with capers and kalamata olives. This was my first time here, and it won't be my last.
I usually order something different every time I go to a restaurant. The Penne Grancio is SO good though, that I find myself ordering it often. It uses fresh crab and there's lots of it, and the creamy tomato sauce is the perfect blend of creamy and acidic. The basil is a nice touch and not overpowering like other restaurants I've been to. The penne itself is always perfectly al dente. Paired with their house salad, it's the best date night food. And be sure to try a seat next to the windows. We've seen seals, porpoises, and the ever-present herons while we dine. It's an amazing restaurant!
Even with gluten-free noodles, it is still DELICIOUS.
I order the Penne Grancio every time I come to Massimo Italian Bar and Grill. The basil cream tomato sauce is well balanced and I'm always impressed with the large portion of crab that comes with it. They also have a great dessert selection. My favorite is the creme brule but everything I've tried has been fantastic. I've always gotten great service here and if you can get a seat by the window the view of the water and forest is beautiful.
Had the Panino Con Prosciutto for lunch a week or two ago, and it was absolutely fantastic! Perfect blend of prosciutto, mozzarella, basil and tomatoes on a grilled panini. A slice of delicious tiramisu was the perfect finish, too. Wonderful food combined with great views and extremely reasonable prices = I'll be back soon!
Great Service. Nice place to have lunch.disapointed in Spaghetti Carbonara. Worked in Italy over five years and liked the Italian version best. Other wise nice place to eat. Will go back and try another dish.
I brought friends visiting from Germany for lunch and they really enjoyed the food, as did I. Dessert was equally tasty.
Awesome food & service! You feel like your on the beach in Sicily eating diner!!!!
This was excellent! It was tender, noodles were cooked perfectly.
Hands down BEST clam pasta I've ever had! Finished the entire bowl and dipped the bread that was left over into the sauce. If you're not sure what to try; and like clams... seriously get this.
My daughter's go to - she gets it with pesto cream sauce and it's AMAZING!
Located on the water in Purdy, they offer gluten-free pasta choices - a huge plus in my book! The food is so tasty and the wait staff very pleasant.
Great food, service and amazing view!!
Pasta cooked perfectly!! Beautiful cream sauce that carried the flavors of the sundries tomatoes and sausage was amazing!!!
My favorite chicken Marsala. The sauce is perfect!
Delicious sandwich, beautiful location, beautiful view!
This is one of my favorite dishes, along with the special Filet Tips! Rich and creamy and oh my goodness! Never fails- always delicious! I usually add shrimp to the top of the linguine, too. Every meal we eat here is delicious! Kim and pat Klock
The best Chicken Parmesan I've ever had, I love it with the Marinara sauce, which is so delicious, spicy, saucy perfection. I love everything, the bread and dipping sauce, the salad with the best blue cheese dressing, the dessert selection. YUM!! My favorite restaurant....ever!
This dish was SPECTACULAR!! Really blowed me away with the caprese. I recommend this dish and resultant because this was the best of the northwest.
I love this dish at Massimo! Amazing. They also have specials all the time that range from Osso Bucco to seafood to beef to pasta that are not on the regular menu. Service is always gracious, and always calming to dine overlooking the water at sunset.
I am a NY'er of Italian dissent and the food in Washington has left me very home sick for New York food for the past decade. The meal I had was excellent and the Cannoli was better then some I had in NY. I will be back. Oh the atmosphere and service where also top notch as well. Thanks for a wonderful dining experience.
My family and I dined at Massimo for a late birthday celebration for my father. The experience was excellent. The service was great and the food was all amazing. I had the crab ravioli special and was not disappointed. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable and made sure we were taken care of. To top it all off, the view from the restaurant is amazing. We were able to watch the sunset outside and it was breathtaking. Overall, the experience was great and we are already planning our return.
We have driven by this restaurant for many years. Tonight we decided to try Massimo Bar and Grill. What a wonderful experience. The food was excellent. The sauces had you asking each other what the flavors were. The staff was friendly and you felt the cared. Overall, a diamond in the rough. We didn't drink so no comment on the bar.
We have tried many dishes. Have taken may people there. Everything has never Disappointed us. #1 Go to restaurant
Beautifully done halibut, covered with a very serious puttanesca richness. Best halibut in a long time...
Good chocolate and sweet ice cream. Couldn't ask for anything better
We had a lovely spontaneous dinner at Maasimo. The beef medallions were cooked perfectly and were delicious. The dinner salad was excellent. The wine was very good. Everything was moderately priced. We loved the atmosphere. I was extremely pleased with our experience. We have driven by and seen the sign on the highway so many times and finally stopped. This is my new favorite place in Gig Harbor and we will back again and again.
My favorite here! Nice view. Always friendly staff.
Fantastic- authentic - waterfront dining. Massimo's has been our go-to place since moving here. Any day of the week - afternoon or evening - the experience is memorable.
Minestronie , beer and wine. We're coming back for the Osso Buco and a few other attractive menu items such as the anti pasta appetizer …..we want to try several of your menu items....they all look great.
The Penne Massimo is delicious! The sun dried tomatoes with the cream sauce, along with the sausage and perfectly cooked penne is amazing! I would definitely order this dish again!
This is great!
So delicious and authentic. Creamy and garlicy. I also ask if they can make it for me as a dinner as well!
