Squaremeal Review of Massimo Restaurant & Bar ?

Set in the swanky Corinthia Hotel, this impressive dining room has real wow factor, thanks to the David Collins design of imposing Corinthian columns, intricate mosaic floors and swathes of parquet. Eponymous chef Massimo Riccoli no longer runs the kitchen here, but you can still find authentic Italian flavours amid a roll-call of smart trattoria-style dishes. Choices include classic parmigiana di melanzane, soft-fleshed octopus with potato cream and zesty Amalfi lemon, lamb in a black olive crust and a selection of perfectly al dente pasta, including pappardelle with wild boar ragu, and seasonal pheasant ravioli. If you don’t have time to linger, head for the lavish oyster bar: a glamorous spot to indulge a love of crustaceans or flappingly fresh ceviche. Imposing prices throughout can be offputting, though the set menu notably offers three courses plus a glass of Prosecco for £30. Hotel-style service is “friendly and caring”.

    Massimo is an Italian restaurant in the Corinthia Hotel near the Embankment that has been around since the the hotel opened in 2011. It features one of the the most stylish interiors in London dating from its Victorian heritage as the impossibly glamorous Metropole Hotel, and its Corinthian design reinvention by the late great designer David Collins. The joint was named after its initial chef-patron, Massimo Riccioli-a big shot chef from Rome with the emphasis being firmly on seafood. However whilst the nosh was brilliant at times and reviews were good there were problems with service and somehow the place never...

    The Critics Guide :: Massimo Restaurant London UK

    Massimo can be found inside the Corinthia Hotel in London. This grand dining room specialises in fine Italian cuisine in lavish surroundings. They do a super job of bringing an authentic taste of Italy right into the heart of London. We had a wonderful evening, there was plenty to admire with Romanesque pillars, large chandeliers and beautiful high ceilings.
    We started our evening with two glasses of Moutard Prestige Rose, NV to liven up the palate. To begin we ordered Home-Made Cuttlefish Ink Spaghetti with Lobster and Sweet Chilli, the sommelier paired this dish was a glass of Zibibbo, Sicily, Italy, 2013.
