    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    As a steppy, your voice is often muted by those who are blood, but, this time, my suggestion for Matteo's fell upon perked-up ears. The authentic New York Italian attitude served by every manager, GM and hostess coupled with the delicious veal, chicken, and seafood pastas made the night extremely memorable. I'm so glad my steps listened to me for once!!!

    The wait staff is very well trained, attentive and completely professional. The food is served family style but the waiter dishes out portions to everyone, making it easy to fill each plate with what you want yet enough to go around. We started with the Mateos mixed salad, always delicious. Then we ordered shrimp oregano, linguini with white clam sauce, chicken marsala, veal chop and spaghetti marinara. all scrumptious & outstanding. We ate it all! This place is consistently good.

    We had a party of 10 and never were we upset with any part of the evening. The choices on the menu and the specials were great. Every one had nothing but high praise for the quality of meals and the service they received. The chilean sea bass was outstanding as were all the other dishes that were consumed. I would definitely return and I would certainly recommend it to all my dinning out friends.

    We have been coming to Matteo's for over a year. Food is always delicious. My family's favorite is the Chicken Marsala. Our waiter was very attentive. It was busy for a Monday night which is a good sign. Everybody around us seemed to be having a good time. Matteo's is our go-to Italian restaurant in the neighborhood.

    Food is generally very consistent and value is good especially for a group- Service sometimes can be annoying as they insist on serving you - I get that its family style and they are trying to be helpful, but it can be frustrating. Also the fact that they make you order your complete meal all at once, does not sit well with everyone

    We had a large group of 11 and the waiter was excellent, friendly and sentative to our needs....The fried calamari was not rubbery and the back clams were delicious, the group said it was one of the best ever had....Next was the Matteo's chopped salad was good, 2 pasta dishes...bolengenese was great and broccoli and garlic was good....main dishes Chicken Parm, Chicken Francse and Shimp A La Wendy----that was amazing with the burnt string beans....To full for dessert. Would highly recommend but need reservations and still will have to wait but worth it.

    He host understood that we were a large party and might grow larger. He also accepted that we would be arriving at different times. He worked with our issues, found us tables that could connect if needed. They got the early group out and continued to adapt to less than gracious guests in our extended party. Couldn't ask for better attitudes from the staff!

    It was our first time dining at Matteo's and we were pleasantly surprised by the deliciousness of the food and the quality of the service. Everything is served family style and our waiter asked us what we liked and then made recommendations which were spot on. It is a great place to go for a special occasion or even a lovely family dinner, as we did.

    Great food! Just remember the portions a extremely large. Many of the half orders could be for two or three people. We have been going quite often, and always bring left overs home. The Caesar Salad is to die for , and so are the baked clams oreganata . Since I can't eat red sauces, I stick with Salmon. You won't be disappointed with the Napoleon to top it off. Mangia!!!

Portions huge so share or order half portions which are large too and split or take home. A fun night out with a family feel!

    Its been a few weeks & we're still not sure what to think of this place! First impressions: *many tables there seemed to be "regulars" *definitely not a young crowd! *quite a bit of "work" had been done on this group of people! *waiters aren't trying to earn tips for manners (thankfully ours warmed up after a few visits to our table & turned out to be pretty cool) *reservations don't mean much - we were seated 35 minutes after our set reservation time *food was ok but no better than any # of Italian restaurants we've eaten at in the nearby vicinity of Matteo's Wow, after remembering that evening & doing this review, I'm pretty sure we (including the other party we were with) won't be returning to Matteo's (at least not the one in

    Excellent food! Service was very poor as the waiter had too many tables. We waited a half hour to get water served to the table. It was obvious that the priority settings were given to REGULARS ! The Owner/maitre'd was huggy, kissy with them! It's definitely the Boca Scene! Don't recommend it during Season. June, July, August and September is the time to go for rounders!!

The waiters are a great help in providing valuable ordering information as the portions are huge and half a order is usually more than sufficient..Noise level is high,try to get a table towards the far left as it is much quieter there.

    I would have given 5 stars all the way across if it weren't For the rude bartender. While my husband and I waited for the rest of our party We had a drink at the bar. The older bartender acted like he didn't see us. There was only one other Person at the bar. When our friends showed up we tried to get his attention again He just kept turning his back. Finally just as my friends went to order a drink, he came over, took the tip we left And said "enjoy your dinner" and walked away. He just dismissed us! We were dumbfounded. Our server was excellent as was the food.

    food was pricey, and for that it should have been real good. just ended up being fair,salty,over cooked chicken parm,veal marsala did not taste like it sauce was spicy, and mixed with beef and red sauce that was lack luster.Barely tasted the marsala.Portions were fair and for family style the insult is for Italian there should be plenty . comparable would be maggianos, at least the fill your plates there.
