Max Wolfe, owner and accomplished chef, opened the doors of Maximillian in downtown Walnut Creek in 1977. He changed the restaurant’s name in 1995 to Massimo Ristorante - giving it a new look and a new menu.

The interior was remodeled to reflect a warm Italian style ambience using light shaded woods, neoclassical columns and accented with a complementary color palette of avocado, off black and copper.  

The menu changed from French to Modern Italian cuisine. And after 30 years, Max has successfully maintained his long-standing reputation for quality ingredients, superb cuisine and professional service!

Career Highlights:  Rainbow Room and Rainbow Grill in New York City, Four Seasons Restaurant in New York City and successfully managed restaurants in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia in the seventies.
