Massimo's Vespa Shop reviews

    Massimo's saved the day. My local scooter repair shop failed to complete my Vespa correctly and they were way beyond the scheduled deadline they promised. I was heading to LA for a family visit and I took a chance and called Massimo. He actually opened the shop at 7PM and met me there on a Saturday night so I could drop off my 1963 Vespa GL for repairs. He squeezed me into his busy schedule and fixed things I did not even know were broken. The price was very fair also.

    I would highly recommend this professional and all around nice guy.

    I've been taking my '80 P200e to Massimo for the last 2 years and his work is excellent. He can do repairs and restorations. He is a nice honest guy that takes the time to explain everything in detail. His pricing is very reasonable too.

    And you know he is a great mechanic when people mention his name when selling their scooters on Ebay and Craigslist. Saying "Serviced by Massimo" means a lot. Go to Massimo's and you won't be disappointed.

    Vespas are made in Italy, it only makes sense that the best Vespa repair shop is owned and run by an Italian. If you're looking for a good Vespa repair shop, then stop looking...

    Massimo's Vespa shop is by far THE BEST!

    The sole owner and mechanic Massimo has been turning wrenches on Vespas since he came out of his mother's womb it seems. He knows these machines in and out. He is super knowledgeable and friendly. His prices are very reasonable too. He takes pride in his work and will not stop until he knows that everything is right and you're satisfied.

    Lots of people come in and out of his shop just to chat. It's a pretty laid back environment and everyone is super friendly.

    Btw, don't forget to say hi to his chihuahua guard dog Gracie while your in, she loves it when you play fetch with her foam frisbee.

    As far as I'm concerned, Massimo has another loyal customer. Once you go to his shop, you'll be one too.

    OUTSTANDING REPAIR SHOP!
    I called ahead and he was able to change my tires while I waited.  I found out a lot of little things that make my Vespa even more fun.  Great little tips and reminisced about when I was in Italy.  GREAT PLACE.  The only place you should take a Vespa

    I wanted some things done to my new scooter but needed answers first. So I went to Massimo for the first time. We talked and he explained things very clearly, offered his estimate to do all the work including a loud horn bright headlight and LED front lights. Now I feel I could have done all this myself but I asked what the install fee was and I just could not justify not having the professional do it. Very reasonable fee for install. Super nice guy, good shop and nice little dog running around. I found my shop for future work.

    Massimo is a fantastic mechanic and runs his shop in a most professional manner.  

    As a mechanical engineer, I am very curious about troubleshooting and repairs and I ask a lot of questions.  Massimo is always patient, answers all my questions.  He charges a fair price for parts and labor and has my scooter ready to go on or before the promise date and time.  He is truly exceptional.  

    I have been getting cars, motorcycles and scooters repaired for 45 years and Massimo is the best I've seen.  Period.

    Massimo will go out of his way to do what it takes to help you out.
    He is honest, fair and knows his business, wish he would be working
    on my cars as well.
    Thank you

    Talk about finding a diamond in the rough for a Vespa owner.  This man REALLY knows what he's doing.  He gave my 2012 LX150ie its first service this morning and in about an hour it was all finished.  Massimo gave me tips on how to care for the bike, especially the chrome.  

    He is so knowledgeable about Vespas and it's obvious that his father taught him well.  My bill undercut the dealers by $70.00!  I highly recommend him to anyone in south LA or Orange County.  His work is very thorough and professional.  I'm so glad I found this expert technician.  He even offered me a Vespa to ride home if I couldn't wait for the service!  Wow, who does that any more?

    I met Massimo when I needed my scooter repaired from a minor crash in September, 2009.  He rebuilt my Vespa to perfection as if it were new again.  Attention was made to every single detail.  I felt safe again, and startted to ride right away.

    I just had him do my first 625 mile service and he was nice enough to take care of me about an hour after I called.  I was ready as expected and ran perfectly.  I trust in his expertise in all that is Vespa, and with my safety because he is meticulous with his work.

    Great place to maintain your Vespa.  I only did servicing but massimo is a cool ragazzo who works fast and is pretty fair on pricing.  Don't ever bother with a dealership for parts or service.

    For all your scooter needs he is the best. Knowledgeable and doesn't mind helping beginners. I've taken 3 scooters to him and will do again.

    I'm happy.  Massimo did some normal service.  The work exposed an electrical problem which he was also fixed.  It runs great.

    Massimo is the Scooter King in my opinion. He's been providing service on my Vespa for a couple of years now, always friendly and always able to fix whatever problem I might have. The other day my speedometer went out, I went to Massimo's expecting to drop of the bike and pick up later, but he literally dropped what he was doing and solved the problem right there and then. He's in a class all of his own.  When you visit his cool garage, you'll see lots of gorgeous vintage Vespa scooters that have been restored beautifully, and see a really nice selection of accessories. I enthusiastically recommend Massiomo's Vespa Shop.
