    Great Friday vibe combined with delicious food and outstanding service. The day’s special of smoked eel, macadamia, fennel pollen, house made campanella ‘aglio e olio’ compelled me to make a reservation the night before. Squisito e delizioso!

    I have been anticipating the reopening of this Italian Osteria since it’s closure due to the lockdown of 2020. Third day of reopening appears to be patronised by loyal followers, well suited and dressed business professionals in the legal district of the CBD, of Chef Joseph Vargetto and his delicious Sicilian cuisine... The Gold Cannoli is pure luxury and decadence... I have booked a return visit soon to sample more from the delicious menu.

    This place is always, and was again, superb. Great food, wine, service and atmosphere. My interstate friend was (as others have been in the past) very impressed. Wonderful to have the knowledgeable and friendly (and long serving) Jade there, together with her Italian colleague. 10/10 for sure.

    Another wonderful evening at Massi, brought a friend who had never been before and he was a total convert....tried the grilled mackerel and said it was one of the best fish dishes ever. Remains my favourite restaurant

    This is a small restaurant so I recommend booking. We had a delightful waiter. He was fairly busy so my only little compliant was that our water glass only got replenished once but he was really good when he was able to attend us. Meals all got full marks

    Massi never disappoints, the service is always welcoming and the food is divine. Being near Christmas the place was bustling with larger groups, so a little noisier than in the past and we missed out on a cosy booth, but having said that it was a nice way to celebrate a birthday. If you visit, you must try nonna's menu, it's a great way to sample the variety on offer, I don't think I can go past it on our next visit.

    Made us feel like we were exploring Italy with each dish. Just the right amount served of chefs fixed choice. Matching wines were extraordinary.

    Another wonderful evening at Massi. Food was superb with a rather special crab croquet as a new entree...a taste explosion and highly recommended. Mains were beautifully presented and the fish was cooked to perfection with a delicate balance of flavours. Cheese was the perfect end to a great evening. Jade and team provided a welcoming and professional service as always.

    It was the first time for us dining at Massi and we were really impressed. Food was excellent! We had the Nonna menu and it was great value for money. Service was friendly and we will go back and recommend it to friends. Lovely night thank you!

About the restaurant

Big Italian flavours on Little Collins

Nestled in amongst some of Melbourne's most well respected hotels and surrounded by office towers, Massi is an excellent choice for both an up-scale business lunch or dinner meeting, a romantic meal for two or a convenient choice for visitors to this fair city.

Massi is everything you would expect from a modern Italian restaurant. Cool white walls and dark brown leather studded booths with white table cloths, glinting wine glasses on every table and along the walls a beautiful display of photographs and pictures showcasing the tradition and family behind the food and the service. As the brother restaurant to Mister Bianco in Kew there is a lot of care and thought that has been put into the set up of Massi - and that really shows.

The atmosphere and service in the restaurant are exceptional at any time of the day. Wait staff are courteous and helpful but move around with the efficiency that comes with serving a busy restaurant. At night it is a pleasure to watch the chefs at work in the ""Antipasto Corner"", a fun and interactive way to showcase the freshness of the produce and the food that is being served.

Delight in the modern Italian menu featuring dishes like Linguine with mussels, prawns and samphire; the Ricotta Gnocchi with salted speck, radicchio and truffle cream, or the Crumbed Veal Cotoletta with porcini sauce and crispy onions. The portion sizes reflect the quality of the food - not too much and not too little. Totally satisfying.

Best dish: Cavatelli, slow cooked pork shoulder ragu & white beans.
