Our Menu

It’s been said “Italians don’t eat to live, they live to eat.” At Ristorante Massimo world-class authentic Italian food is more than our passion—it’s our life’s work. Italian culinary history dates back more than two thousand years, rich with unique regional variations and seasonal ingredients from the northern Piedmont region to the island of Sicily. Italian cuisine, influenced by Asian, Greek, and African cooking, is a melting pot of arguably the most delectable ingredients in the world. And in the footsteps of these noble traditions, we artfully render and proudly serve dishes that respectfully—and deliciously—honor the past.
 
We select seafood, meats, fruits, and vegetables based on freshness, variety, and most importantly, flavor. We actively seek seasonal ingredients, cure our own meats, and make our bread and pasta from scratch. By using New England delicacies like Maine lobster and Bang Island mussels, we deliciously transform timeless Italian favorites. We invite you to learn more about our local sourcing by visiting the ‘farmers & foragers” page.
