Let me first start by saying this place is my favorite. I’ll tell you why.
“For those of you people giving decent reviews or even negative reviews, you need to reevaluate your standards. If you are expecting a 5 star night out…wrong place to go. If you are expecting a nice meal with an authentic italian feel then you are in the right place. The guys that work here are amazingly friendly and actually like what they do and it shows. I am a pizza lover and this pizza is genuinely delicious. It isn’t like these chain pizza stores that tastes relatively fake. I’m not talking about throwing a bunch of toppings on, but getting just a plain cheese or pepperoni pizza will do the trick. The lunch specials are great (2 slices and soda for $5.35 or 1 slice and salad w/soda for $5.65 or 2 slices and a beer for $6.25). They have the italian booths and it has a very home-like feel to it. Those of you who are going for the pizza, this is the place to go. Those of you who aren’t so satisfied probably don’t know what itialian really is since Massimo’s doesn’t taste like CPK or other restaurants claiming to be Italian.”
Massimo’s is a place you would most likely find in Italy with the style and quality of employees, not to mention the delicious pizza! Keep up the good work!

Best pizza in Huntington Beach hands down!
“Been coming here since I was a little kid and everything is great from the pizzas salads sandwiches and pasta too! Prices and reasonable and they have great lunch specials too! The pizza slices are huge too and so delicious! My favorite sandwich is the hot roast beef sandwich! If your nearby you have to give this place a try you won’t be disappointed.”
~ Russell D.,
One of the best pizza spots in Huntington Beach.
“I love coming here for lunch and getting some slices of cheese or pepperoni.
The prices are awesome here and they also have great lunch specials.
Beware though, its Cash Only (ugh!)
they also have some good sandwiches if you’re not in the mood for some pizza.
oh yeah, don’t forget to get that ranch with your pizza!”

Great lunch specials…yummy pizza!
“I grew up going to this spot…the owners welcome you with open arms and make you feel like family.”
~ Nasim M,
Great food, great staff, great vibe!
The pizza is homemade and so good every single time. They are very consistent with their food. I just recently tried their mushroom and garlic sauce pasta, and it was very delicious. They also can do a hot vege sandwich for you that isn’t on the menu and it is mouth watering good.
You can never go wrong with their slices daily special that comes with their house salad. YUM. I am getting hungry just typing this review.

I LOVE THIS PLACE!
I like to consider myself somewhat of a pepperoni pizza connoisseur – I’m kidding. This place is awesome. From the perfectly proportioned pizza ingredients to the laid back ambiance. Yes you could buy a large $5 diarrhea pie from Little Caesars or you can support a local business and feel good inside. Seriously love it. They don’t take card though. Oh and they’re “small” house salad is huge and is only $3.50.
~ Mary B,
Wow, finally, good pizza in So Cal.
I am out of town and trusted my local yelpers for a good pizza joint and they didn’t disappoint. They delivered to the Hyatt Regency and we didn’t have to lift a finger. We did meet them in the lobby though. I was worried about delivery since pizza gets cold and soggy but not this pizza. It was crunchy and chewy. The best of both worlds. I love you pizza. The toppings were just right too. Not loaded where they fell off and they weren’t scarce where the cheese and sauce is all you get, it was perfectly topped with goodness. They brought along red pepper flakes and parm cheese in take out containers that were much appreciated. We also ordered a sub and the bread was OK. A little dry and too crispy for me but the meat was on point. Italian meats meet my mouth. Yes, the best yet.
Thanks for a great experience! Will keep this on our yearly rotation when in town.

I was really craving pizza and this place had great pizza that really hit the spot!! My friend and I split one small and it was more than though. The crust was fresh and perfectly crispy. It wasn’t oily like other pizza places. Mushrooms were fresh, chicken was just a tad in the dry side.
The service was good, I can tell they are close with the community as it seemed like they knew quite a few of the customers who came in. I think it might be family owned, and I have a soft spot for places thar are family owned.
Would definitely come back next time I’m in the area!

Not quite in the same class as Grimaldi’s, but definitely great for your neighborhood New York style pizza.
The kitchen is totally exposed so you get to see that the dough is expertly hand spun by some very serious looking pie makers. Smile boys, although one of them did give me a shout out as I was watching him work that dough. Hey what can I say, I’m easily entertained.
This is a larger space than many of your neighborhood pie purveyors with several flats tuned into sports of course , and I love their super comfortable booths. I was greeted by a friendly smiling young chap, not always the case here, and ordered up a small pie with schrooms, olives, onions, and sausage. All tasted very fresh except for the canned olives, but not a deal breaker as most pizzerias use canned olives as well. A little too much cheese for my liking, but that is typical of these types of pizzerias. I requested that they over bake a tad, and that request was fulfilled perfectly with a nice slightly crisp crust bone. The very flavorful sauce definitely tastes homemade.
They do serve beer and wine, and the wine glass was of surprisingly decent quality, as I have been given wine in plastic glasses before at these casual family owned places. Classy!
Hot tip from a friend who grew up close by: he claims the sandwiches far outshine the pizzas in his opinion, so will follow up on that some other time. On this evening pizza was my craving. Other tips: cash only, they offer slices, several pasta dishes and salads too.
Located 1 block from the beach, so very convenient to schlep a pizza to the beach, or stop by on your way back for those post beach munchies.

I was born and raised in the Pizza capital of the world….Chicago. I’ll just start by saying, generally, Southern California pizza is atrocious. This spot, though, is definitely the best pizza I’ve had since I have been here past 3 years.
Good people, quality service, family owned, great fresh pizza, can’t beat it.

Massimos all de way

Been coming to this family run joint for 15 years. By far the best pizza in Orange County.
The guys working here are also very friendly. They have a daily lunch special every day as well. Kuddos

Best pizza ever!
Left the beach to look for food! Found this pizza joint! I wasn’t expecting much so I was very happy when I took that first bite! The service was great! Gentleman behind the counter offered me a free soda while I waited and carried the food to my car for me!
Great service, great food! I’ll definitely make a trip back just for the pizza and service!

Easily 5 stars, I have been coming here since I was a toddler.
I love their food, not once have I been unsatisfied. Love their pizza, love their salads, love their sandwiches, everything is fresh. I just recently tried their fettuccine alfredo and I must say that I haven’t had better fettuccine anywhere else. I need to experiment with their pastas as well, I have only heard great things!
The staff is so friendly, everything is clean, and most importantly the quality of their food is out of this world!
