Designed by the late David Collins and typical of his style at its most majestic, Massimo’s decor mixes marble, leather and bronze as if to suggest HG Wells’s time machine landed amid Roman baths. The room is admittedly huge, but does that necessitate or simply magnify the opulence? Most of the customers on our lunchtime visit were moneyed tourists, possibly from the adjacent Corinthia Hotel. We tolerated the question whether we understood the raw scallops we ordered were actually raw ‘like sashimi’. Fortunately, they were delicious, sliced thinly and prettily dressed with chive and courgette flowers. The menu offers the likes of Herdwick lamb and Goosnargh chicken, but freshest seafood (there’s also an oyster bar) and, to certain extent, pasta are the key draws. Tagliolini with crab and chilli was exemplary, so too the breads that staff offered throughout the meal. The dessert list is classic yet persuasive; a dark chocolate faux cappuccino was delightful. Wine prices are on par with the location and decor – glasses start at £8.50 for just 125ml.

We sat in the center of a huge location, with massive ceilings and impressive decor. The next table was miles away and that is a real luxury these days. Food was superb. The sea-bass for 2 was really well cooked and presented. Wine list was large and appropriate, but some prices were beyond the pale. I have been traveling and dining around the world most of my life and I recognised some big names but at ridiculous prices. Having said that we did find a great wine from Leon (Spain) at a reasonable price (£56) that hit the spot. 

Massimo is expensive and it is grand without being grandiose. Service was good and prompt. I'll go back


Loved dinner at Massimo's. Stunning venue, delicious food and perfect service. We'll definitely be going back but we guess we won't have the pleasure of Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie dining in the restaurant with us next time!

Went there yesterday night and it was a perfect dining experience. Beautiful atmosphere, attentive (but not over-attentive) staff and food could not be faulted. In general though, starters and Primi more interesting than mains. Can highly recommend the Linguine.
