The outside of the restaurant is inviting as is the menu but I didn't think the pasta was particularly good. It was definitely overpriced. Service was not bad. It is probably better not to go too late. By the time we left the place was crowded.

We went for a family dinner with relatives in Maceio. Massarella has good Italian options on the menu. My wife and I shared the Ravioli Erva. with a 4 cheese sauce, it was good quality and very filling. I can definitely recommend this establishment to all.

The restaurant physical environment is attractive and inviting: good for romantic dinners, family dinners or even business dinners. However, this restaurant is floating on its past performance or reputation, but does not deliver in any way. We had a soup and a pasta, both overly salty, this took all possible rich flavours away. My pasta sauce was also dominated by... More

For those who does not dispense a good mass in maceió the Massarela is a great choice. Typically Italian generous dishes with lots of flavor and quality.

After a long time, we decide to return to this Italian restaurant for dinner. We had a shrimp risotto à la Bruno (shrimp flamed with vodka, sour cream, and delicacies). The dish arrived in a reasonable time for its preparation and was very tasty. I believe that a somewhat larger portion of shrimps would have made us happier, but even... More

In there for lunch today March 18. and was a bit disappointed they didn't serve pizzas before 6 PM. Not a big problem as they have good pasta and salads too. Service very good, no problem with that. The place is obviously also a popular place for groups to enjoy lunch together :-)

There was nothing in the menu we've tried that I could say it was good. The pasta was overcooked, something unacceptable in a italian restaurant. The sauces were very simple and the portions were huge. The service is also bad. I really don't understand why they have a full house almost every weekend.

This is a rather conventional Italian restaurant, with no surprises with with an impeccable service and meals. Highly recommended for those who are not seeking for new tastes.

I've been to Massarela a couple times when visiting Maceió-AL and this is so far the best restaurant of town in my opinion. Food is always awsome, deserts are equally great and waitresses are all very efficient and polite. Can't wait to go back!!!
