Ristorante Massimo
Ristorante Massimo

$$$$
Italian | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Food was delicious. Pasta and duck entrees were wonderful. Service was excellent. The only issue was that the ambiance was a bit dated—like it hasn’t been updated since 1955. If you prefer going back to the 50s, then this is the place! More

Italian | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

When we arrived we were seated quickly. Our server was quick to take our drink orders and they arrived promptly. The restaurant was not that crowded when we arrived but got a little busier as our meal progressed. Our server was attentive. There were only four adults in our party but somehow we had to wait an hour for our entrees to arrive. The food was very good, but extremely overpriced for what you get. I would not go back. More

$$$$
Seafood | Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Outstanding waitress, great food. Since Martingale Wharf sponsors Portsmouth Rep, the 25% discount is an added benefit. Curried mussels blew our socks off (we order mussels wherever we dine, and these were amazing!) Steak was as good as you will get anywhere. Seafood grill was superb. Even the house Chardonnay was far better than a house wine elsewhere. The view is beautiful. We happened to be sitting next to a very lively business group, but otherwise the ambiance was fairly laid back. More

The portobello fries were out of this world good. Our server was super nice. The table next to us with the crying children was less than ideal, but it's a hotel so that's going to to happen. It was pretty quiet otherwise when we were there and we really enjoyed ourselves. I would love to see more small plates / appetizers - we ended up splitting like three and that was perfect. More
