“Fabulous food and waitstaff, but very noisy”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

Absolutely delicious food served in huge portions. If you have ever had baked clams, they will all pale compared to these and if you've never had baked clams, now is the time to try them!! Unbelievably outstanding. Whether you are ordering carefully. (Fish, veg) or splurging ( parmesan, pasta) you will be very happy here. Always busy so go early. My only complaint is that it is so noisy it's hard to have a conversation, but the food...the cannoli..... Yum!

“Superb Italian Dining”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Pricey but so worth it. Good service delivers exceptional food. We especially recommend the shrimp in breadcrumbs and oil: the best! Also, we enjoyed the veal parmesan, calimari, and linguini with clams in a delicious white sauce. This restaurant may well serve the very best Italian food you will ever experience. I know that sounds pretty over the top, but for Italian dining this side of Little Italy in New York City, you can't do better.

“Excellent Traditional Italian Cuisine!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We took our granddaughter to Matteo's to celebrate her graduation. She wanted Italian food at a place she had not visited before so my husband did a Google search. We were visiting and did not know the area at all. When I called to make reservations I asked if they could arrange for a surprise dessert to celebrate and they were very happy to comply. Matteos' atmosphere is a little different in that it appears to be very formal when you enter, but after being seated we realized there were several televisions scattered about showing sporting events as well as 70's rock music playing overhead. It was just an odd mix, but not noisy at all. The food was absolutely fantastic! We ordered half size platters of Chicken Parmesan, Veal Parmesan and rigatoni. We had way too much food and no room for the beautiful Neapolitan cake with a candle that the server brought to our table. Excellent food and service!! I highly recommend Matteo's for good authentic Italian Cuisine.

“Yes! Back to NY for terrific family Italian food”
Reviewed 12 May 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful time Saturday night. We ate way too much because all we ordered was delicious. The special treats were the stuffed artichoke and the baked clams. And the linguini with white clam sauce was great. Go and enjoy!
