“delicious pastries”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We ate breakfast here two days in a row and the coffee and pastries were delicious. They also have fresh squeezed orange juice, which was really great too. They do offer more "American" breakfasts with bacon, eggs, etc. but we didn't try them because the croissants were so good!

“Great coffee”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

We had our morning coffee there every morning. Wifi worked only part of the time. The wait staff work hard and are friendly. Also had a pizza that was better than average.

“Makes me want to throw up just thinking about it.”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Cafe Matteo is utter garbage. Don't let the nice outdoor seating fool you. This is place is not meant to serve anything but drinks. Our waiter (who seemed to be the owner) almost seemed surprised when we ordered a few pasta meals. He brought them out one by one (no doubt after each had come out of the microwave since they were frozen meals). The food was inedible the service was tacky. I'm still not sure how he could actually serve those meals with a straight face. This place is the worst of Italy's tourist scene, terrible restaurants that have no incentive to be good since new patrons come in every few days. We were sucked into a handful of similar places during our two weeks in Italy but this one was the worst by a mile. In hindsight, his reaction when we ordered dinner, and the fact (that we learned later) that the "cafe" does not have a kitchen at all, should have sent us running. Avoid this place at all costs, you'll have a similar (likely better) meal on your airline flight back to wherever your visiting from.

Basic little place with better than average cafe snack food (quiche, hot sandwiches, brioche etc) and good espresso. Very friendly staff.

“nice cafe with good wifi connection”
Reviewed 1 November 2013

Nice little cafe to have croissants and cappuccino in the morning with the locals. Nice to have drinks in the afternoon. I prob. wouldn't eat hot meals here, as they don't cook them themselves, but the owners are very nice, fresh made OJ is great too. lively atmosphere.
