Italian Specialties
Introducing some of Massimo’s best treats.

Massimo draws his inspiration from the culinary tradition of his hometown in Southern Italy. He serves the mainstays of traditional Italian food, which do not only bear an authentic look, but also has the real taste of homemade Italian fares.

“I don’t do fancy food. I just love to carefully pick my produce and ingredients. That’s how you get meals that taste real.”, says Massimo.

Excellent Italian cuisine starts with the love for the product, yet Massimo’s singular approach doesn’t stop there. Time, he adds, is also a major factor in creating an exceptional taste.

Commitment to quality implies no frozen processed ingredients and no pre-chopped produce. During peak hours, it could mean a little more waiting time, yet, as many satisfied customers would readily attest, it worths every minute of it.

Massimo Italian Restaurant, in Sanur, Bali, has been serving authentic Italian cuisine in the culinary tradition of Southern Italy for more than two decades. Our running success can be attributed to the owner Massimo Sacco from a coastal town in the southeastern region of Italy known as Lecce.

Chef Massimo began his delicious career in a culinary school in Italy. After graduating with honors, he furthered his skill at hotels and restaurant in Isle of Man, London and Frankfurt – before joining several international cruise liners.

Today, the chef’s love for good food – Southern Italian dishes in particular – comes through in the simple, light, Mediterranean-influenced menu. Here, to keep it fresh, each dish is prepared when you order – to maintain the freshness of even the scantiest of ingredients.

Yet, from years of experience, Chef Massimo knows that a great meal alone is not enough to put the restaurant on the map like it is today without the best ambiance in the kitchen and the restaurant as a whole. He is, of course, referring to the women and men who help him serve the best Italian food in Bali.

“I know it’s a cliché to say that, but we’re all one big family here. I speak Indonesian, so there isn’t any communication problem, and most of the times we all feel like we’re happily sharing a home”, he says.

The smiling staff around the restaurant is a testament to that. You will immediately feel this family atmosphere every time you visit Massimo Italian Restaurant.

The Venue
The place to go for authentic Italian dining in Bali.

Massimo Italian Restaurant is located in Jalan Danau Tamblingan, one of the busiest tourist districts in Sanur.

Once you are in the area, just look for a mouth-watering display of gelato in front of our restaurant. A big showcase of authentic homemade gelato is set up right by the sidewalk, often attracting a small crowd. Choosing from refreshing desserts, they often enjoy right on the spot.

Our restaurant itself consists of two areas: Near the entrance is the garden sitting area with splaying tropical trees and plants giving shade. At night, this section is a favorite for those who want to have a romantic, candle-lit dinner. Further inside the establishment is the large, indoor sitting area. This section provides long tables; perfect for groups and families. Indeed, Massimo has long been the place to go for intimate family gatherings or festive celebrations. Whatever the occasion is, Massimo offers an unrivaled authentic Italian dining experience in a tasteful setting where there’s truly something for everybody.
