Massimo has been making waves in the Providence restaurant scene since its opening in mid-June. While many Atwells restaurants have upheld the status quo – upscale but standard Italian fare – Massimo is bursting with creativity in its menu, interior and approach.
You can tell this restaurant is different from the rest of street, even the casual and breezy name on the facade sets a fresh mood. The interior, designed by Kyla Coburn, seems simple until you notice the details. The multiplicity of funky chairs and geometric tiles would feel chaotic had they not been chosen by such an expert eye.
