“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014 via mobile

Wow! We had a great experience. The food was really good and well portioned. The food is Italian, yes, it may have its "novelties" but it's italian at its core. The service was splendind, make sure you get a table with Michael.
I surely recommend it!

“Outstanding, Authentic Italian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Don't miss eating at Matteo's Osteria when you are in Maui. The food is so delicious and was as good as we are accustomed to getting in New York Italian restaurants. Their pizzas are outstanding with light, fresh dough and wonderfully fresh ingredients. We had the Margharita; it was the best. The eggplant parm was so delicious too, as was the chicken saltimbocca. You will not find fresher, more delicious Italian food than at Matteo's. We've been coming to Maui for 30 years, and we are so happy Matteo's is here again. Don't miss it.

“Wish we found it sooner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

When staying in Wailea, we found most of the restaurants to be VERY expensive, unless you hit Happy Hour (which didn't always fit in our plans or their menus are limited). However, Matteo's had just opened in December 2013 and we tried it out. The food was excellent, the service was fantastic and the outdoor patio was really nice. The menu prices are a fraction of what you find at the nearby restaurants and even their wine is is quite reasonable. True it does not have a view of the ocean but I would definitely go back there again. If you are staying at Grand Champions it is a very, very short walk. We were in Wailea for three weeks and wished we had found this restaurant earlier as we would have returned.

“Matteo's is outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

We absolutely loved Matteo's Osteria!
And don't get me started on the Chef himself, he is a very warm, very approachable gentleman. We introduced ourselves, because we knew a former employee, that recommended us to try his excellent food.
First of all the place is very charming, and the food very affordable. He had a lunch special for $21, that included a glass of wine, a choice of salad and a choice of entree'. Everything was superb, the pizza is very authentic, his Bolognese to die for, and the Zucca salad was delicious! We had awesome service from Chris, he gave great suggestions and really knows the food he is serving. We will be back for dinner and can't wait to try the Gnocchi, the Ravioli and the Saltimbocca. Ciao Matteo!

Wonderful atmosphere, great wine bar. Exceptionally good food, came out hot (garlic bread, Bologenese, Ahi). The bad....waaaaaay too hot inside the restaurant.
