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. This combination of Lobster with Sweet Chilli was the perfect marriage. My partner ordered the Home-Made Spinach Pappardelle with Wild Boar Ragout and Orange. The Wild Boar was tender and with the Orange flavour made for an interesting dish. This was paired with a smooth glass of Castelfeder ‘Lahn’ Kerner, Trentino-Alto Adige, 2012.

“The food was exquisite.”

For our main course we ordered the Whole Sea Bass to share, the Sea Bass was prepared table side with Roasted Vine Tomatoes and Asparagus. This was an enjoyable experience and a joy to watch on as our server prepared the Sea Bass. The Bass was a tender and full of flavour. This is a must try dish if you’re visiting Massimo. We added sides of Spinach and Roast Potatoes with Herbs, and the dish was paired with a glass of Chablis Domaine Collet, France, Burgundy, 2013. Having an experienced sommelier brings out the best in a dish. This wine was perfect with the Bass, with lively floral notes and a full body.

For dessert we ordered Amalfi Lemon with White Chocolate and Almond Cake. This is a dessert showing a little creative flair and was delicious. My partner ordered the Borsari Panettone, another Italian classic which was spot on. We finished off with two delightful glasses of Passito di Pantelleria, Pellegrino, Sicily, Italy, 2011. A dessert wine with a complex and elegant delivery, we left Massimo with a pleasant taste in our mouths both literally and metaphorically speaking.
