Amazing spot on Federal Hill to host a private event!
My son was recently married in Providence and I needed to find a venue to host the rehearsal dinner. Initially I found another Italian spot on Federal Hill that I fell in love with; however, after several failed attempts to get a returned phone call or email, I decided to look elsewhere, that's when a co-worker mentioned Massimo's. I went online and sent an email inquiring on private events, I received an email back the same day from the restaurant manager, Sarah Doolan telling me their event coordinator Kerri Schwartz was on vacation, but she would be happy to send me over some information and would have Kerri contact me when she returned. I cannot stress enough how responsive the two of them were. I decided to take a trip down to Providence one weekend w/a friend to scope it out. The service was unbelievable, the food was delicious, the upstairs venue room was beautiful. I work in customer service, the most impressive part was that they had no idea I was "shopping" them and the level of service they provided was outstanding. Next was the price, the event menu offered a 3 course meal that was VERY AFFORDABLE and the portion size was more than enough. I ended up having 30 guests and reserved the space on the second floor, the room itself was beautifully decorated, the waitstaff assigned to our event was phenomenal, they were super attentive & friendly. I honestly cant think of one thing they could have done better! Awesome night!!!! For anyone questioning, NO, I do not work there or know anyone who does, just honestly can't say enough about this place!

Amazing rehearsal dinner on 2nd floor of Massimo!
The rehearsal dinner was . . . simply perfect! This was due in large part to Kerri's (their event manager) patience with us, attention to detail, and quick response to every question we posed - we loved working with her, and she made what could have been a stressful event into a fun and delicious one. From the food and champagne to the beautiful space and ambiance of Massimo, it was just an incredible beginning to Nick and Taj's wedding weekend. And, with regards to the Massimo staff that cared for us that evening - each staff member went above and beyond their traditional roles and made us feel like family. As a matter of fact, our friends from out of state asked us if we knew everyone who worked there personally, since we were so well cared for that night! We highly recommend Massimo to anyone who is planning an event that needs space for approximately 70-100 people!
