Went with my cousin who was nostalgic because his uncle used to go to Matteo's. From the moment we walked in, the entire wait staff was rude. Waiter did not tell us the specials and when we asked questions about the menu, responded as if we were bothering him.

Loud atmosphere, large parties. Food was mediocre. Dishes do not provide enough protein, just loaded with pasta and sauce.

Unfortunately, the food is good. Not exceptional, but good and good-sized portions. I say unfortunate, because the food is the only good thing about the restaurant. There is no atmosphere to speak of, just overcrowded groups of tables and a very loud ambience. We were ignored first by the maitre'd, then the bartender (for about 10 minutes), who pretended he had not seen us waiting at the bar. Our server was unfortunately overworked and the service was inconsistent. Be prepared to wait, and be very patient if you really like the food. Take a valium on the way home.

After having a very average to mediocre meal at Matteos recently,I am wondering who these reviewers are that are giving it such good reports.The ambiance is non-existent, the noise level is headache inducing,the service is totally bored and disinterested, and the food is very average,certainly not memorable so as to want to return.What is it that they like except the massive amount of pricey food.

I made reservations for eight for a Sat. night and we arrived on time and were told it would be about 10 minutes. Fine. After 30 minutes we asked and were told just a few more minutes.After an hour we decided to leave as we were clearly not valued as a customer.Having been there twice previously I understood that the food was standard average Italian fare but the other guests wanted to try it.South Fla. has many very fine Italian restaurants and the only real attraction of Matteos is the huge portions of average Italian food as the ambiance is that of a huge noisy barn.If your idea of eating out is stuffing yourself , pig out and enjoy yourself. Most people would prefer a dining experience where the dishes are delicious,the service is warm and inviting,you are appreciated as a client, and the cost is the same.
