This is one of the best Italian restaurants in Frederick. The food was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The staff was helpful and kind. The dining room is cozy and welcoming. I will definitely eat here again.
We decided to give Cucina Massi a try for our anniversary. We went last Thursday and opted for an early dinner. We were the first to arrive at 4:00 so we were able to get a pleasant table outside. Although we were the first it did not take long for other guests to arrive. All of the staff were very nice. We were not rushed to order and meal timing was perfect. We have never had grilled calamari so we decided to give that a try. It is a great alternative to fried and had good flavor from the grill and the texture was perfect. The mussels come in red or white sauce. We both enjoyed our main dish. They were well portioned. I tried my husbands shrimp and his dish definitely had some spice to it. We agreed we will go back to try more of the menu.
This Italian restaurant is the best in Frederick area hands down!! Being from NJ where Italian food is a big staple and having lived in Italy before, I can say this place is a must! My husband and I attended a wedding rehearsal event there last month and we also just went back again for a double date because it was that amazing!! Their staff are top notch, very knowledgable and attentive! It's such a great romantic date night spot and their food will leave you wanting more even if you're full. For starters their fried calamari was to die for (seriously the perfect crisp and favor), along with their caprese salad, arancini, beef carpaccio. If you love a good caesar salad, just wait until you try theirs!! Their Marinara sauce is on point which is a must with Italian food if you know. Their veal parmigiana literally has me wanting more just thinking about it lol. Also their saltimbocca, shrimp scampi and veal marsala. They get their veal local so its super fresh! For dessert of course we had to get their cannoli's again.
Food and service were outstanding. Being a member of one of the preeminent restaurant families in the area, Massimo absolutely knows what he is doing both in the back and front of the house. We had to wait about an hour but it was not a problem as there is much to do in the area while waiting. We found a very cool little cocktail joint called the 10th Ward and hung out there until they called us for our table. Check out the size of the chicken parm with eggplant. It could have fed our table of 4 alone. Looking forward to our next visit!
The food here is incredible. We enjoyed it. Sitting inside was just a bit loud but outside was not available that night. Wait staff were great.
