About Massimos Baillieston
Massimos is fantastic! Lovely food and friendly staff
This was our 2nd visit and certainly won't be our last. I couldn't speak highly enough about the food here and the presentation. We had the Sunday roast and it was tasty tender lamb with roast potatoes and vegetables. Absolutely gorgeous! The staff are relaxed and friendly. This place really is something special
Food was lovely. Had 2 courses on the market menu and there was a nice amount of time between the 2 courses. It didn't feel rushed but not waiting ages either. Also liked that you could get a rose wine with the meal and it wasn't limited to white or red.
Relaxed, traditional Italian restaurant in Baillieston
Massimo is an authentic Italian restaurant on the east side of Glasgow, offering freshly-made cuisine in the relaxed, stylish space of the Log Cabin, a local entertainment hub. Décor is contemporary and understated with dark wood flooring, and the atmosphere has the buzz of a popular neighbourhood eatery. Locals gather in numbers for the lunch menu, with options of one, two or three courses, and the Sunday specials.
Italian classics and great pizza
The accent at Massimo is on authenticity in a menu that combines familiar Italian favourites with some less obvious items. Starters include funghi con formaggio caprino, mushrooms with goat’s cheese, and frittura di calamari, squid fried in polenta. Mains offer Italian regional specialities such as Brasato Manzo, braised beef with cabbage and mash, filetto de spigola, sea bass with fennel and tomato, and zuppa di pesca fish soup with chilli, garlic and tomato.
The pizza choice puts the emphasis on quality rather than a long list of toppings, while pasta and risotto dishes follow classic recipes.
