The new Massimo restaurant on Federal Hill — the latest venture from husband-and-wife team  Joseph and Esther DeQuattro of Pane e Vino fame — has been open for about a month, but last night was the official ribbon-cutting, with the festivities led by Providence Mayor Jorge Alorza.

The prosecco flowed and a jazz trio played as guests mingled in the remodeled upstairs event space, which now includes a moody, speakeasy-style bar as well as a bright and cheerful main dining space. Like Pane e Vino, Massimo is primarily an Italian restaurant, but with less emphasis on Southern Italian dishes and more contemporary flair, according to Joseph DeQuattro, who wears both the owner and chef’s hat.
