Service very friendly and helpful. Different areas of seating available e.g. Garden, bar, or restaurant. Excellent and extensive menus from Italian to European dishes. Food really lively just like home cooked. Will certainly visit again.

I never post a totally negative review about anywhere, but congratulations to Matricardis, this is my first. We were sitting in a corner as a group of colleagues having a great evening, when the owner came over and suddenly said they have had a complaint about noise, and we have 2 minutes to finish our drinks or they would be...

I am the owner of Matricardi's and this review is a a complete fabrication. I wasn't even working or in the building that night. Are you sure you have the correct bar? More

I have been using this restaurant/bar for years and in all the time I have been there I have never been let down. The restaurant food is always faultless and the bar food excellent. If I have an important meeting over lunch, the restaurant at the back is the perfect place to meet with a wide range of quality food... More

We found this place by accident looking for a brunch venue driving down Henley Main Road. Upon entrance we thought it was small, until we discovered the back part with a fabulous garden for the kids to run around in. Decor is lovely. Coffee was good and food wonderfully presented and tasty. The portions are well sized. Had a look... More

I had a business lunch here and I was very impressed with 'Matricardis' from the minute I walked through the door... It has great character with old wood and flagstone floors and fabulous decor (I loved the Italian buildings wallpaper). From the frontage it looks quite small but it goes back a long way and also has a fabulous peaceful... More

The garden at the back is fantastic so peaceful and relaxing. We had tea, toast and an open sandwich all was excellent. Staff were so nice. Wish we had more time, would have stopped for another tea because the garden was so lovely. Will definitely be back.

We shared a ciabatta with mozarella and tomatoes with proscuito, came with lovely fries and a salad, and was really well presented. Bar looked nice and serves more complex food, which also looked great
