After being closed for nearly two years, a popular Bangor restaurant has reopened its doors.

Massimo's Cucina Italiana has reopened in Downtown Bangor. Chef and owner Massimo Ranni and his wife Anne Marie have reopened their doors again after closing the restaurant  in 2016.

The restaurant at 98 Hammond Street specializes in authentic Italian and Roman cuisine, artisanal breads and deserts. You can see their full menu here.

Massimo's is open Tuesday-Thursday 5-9PM, and Friday-Saturday 5-9:30PM.

Ranni originally closed the restaurant to retire, but missed the industry and returned to Bangor to continue with his passion.

Massimo's originally opened in 2007.
