About Massimo Sacco
Massimo Italian Restaurant, in Sanur, Bali, has been serving authentic Italian cuisine in the culinary tradition of Southern Italy for more than two decades. Our running success can be attributed to the owner Massimo Sacco from a coastal town in the southeastern region of Italy known as Lecce. Chef Massimo began his delicious career in a culinary school in Italy. After graduating with honors, he furthered his skill at hotels and restaurant in Isle of Man, London and Frankfurt – before joining several international cruise liners. Today, the chef’s love for good food – Southern Italian dishes in particular – comes through in the simple, light, Mediterranean-influenced menu. Here, to keep it fresh, each dish is prepared when you order – to maintain the freshness of even the scantiest of ingredients. Yet, from years of experience, Chef Massimo knows that a great meal alone is not enough to put the restaurant on the map like it is today. It requires the best ambiance in the kitchen and throughout the restaurant. He is, of course, referring to the women and men who help him serve the best Italian food in Bali. “I know it’s a cliché to say that, but we’re all one big family here. I speak Indonesian, so there isn’t any communication problem, and most of the times we all feel like we’re happily sharing a home”, he says. The smiling staff around the restaurant is a testament to that. You will immediately feel this family atmosphere every time you visit Massimo Italian Restaurant.
