Diner Reviews
  • "The food is good. The room lacks any ambiance at all. Just a big room filled with tables. The bar was busy though. Service was fast, not too relaxing and they cleared the table plate by plate as others were still eating."

  • "Wonderfully consistent family style Italian meals. We had been out of town for a few weeks and it was so nice to order our favorites and have them arrive exactly as expected. Really fantastic and a good value for the dollar. Staff remembers your name after only a few visits - a very nice touch."

  • "Matteo's brings a touch of traditional New York Italian dining to Florida. The service is excellent. The food is Classic Italian with oversized portions prepared in traditional style to perfection. Matteo's is the real deal. Look no further for GREAT Italian dining."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We have been going to the restaurant for years. This was the worst service ever. The "waiter" got every order wrong. The manager was not much better. The waiter was truly incompetent."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I eat here almost every Friday night with my family when we are in town. It's better then when Matty owned it. The food is good and the service is great. They also make a great drink which is hard to come by in South Florida. Enjoy!"

  • "We go out every Friday and Saturday no matter what. That's the deal! My wife (who grew up as a chef and mother was a chef ) cooks during the week and we go out on weekends. We moved from New York City to Miami 14 years ago and by and large the restaurants here suck (big time!). Matteo's in Hallandale stands out as one of the best restaurants is South Florida in terms of the quality and taste of the food. Its real Italian food! You will enjoy it if you know what I'm talking about! If not you deserve to sit with the other schmucks in all these other tourist trap restaurants down here that SUCK!!!!!!! By the way.........Matteo's has a real Bar (Not just Beer and Wine) and they make great drinks! Not the tourist type of drinks. "

  • "The food and service were excellent. We ordered the half portion size and had enough food to bring home and have for dinner the next day. Would most definetly go back. "
    Dined on 5/1/2014
  • "We go to Matteo's at least 2 times a month. Food brings us back because otherwise it is very noisy and tables are very close together. Don't expect very good service, not enough waiters and they are not the friendliest. "

  • "excellent food and service. Large portions. Large burnt veggies too expensive. "
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "I was very excited to eat here as I had heard amazing things. However, I was not thrilled with the level of service. While the waiter, when at the table, was helpful, he did not check on us nearly enough. And it did not appear to be understaffed as there were plenty of servers standing around."

  • "food was very good service was excellent I found it better than the matteos in roslyn ny"
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "We go to Gulfstream every year when we are in Florida and always saw the ad for Matteo's so we thought we 'd give it a try since we love Italian food. I must say it was not as delicious as we are used to. I guess being from the North, this was not Little Italy. However, we had an enjoyable time. Our waiter was very attentive and service was great."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "The portions of food are more than ample and tasty. It has a true Italian flavor. The service is good: the waiter recommends to the tastes of the patrons and serves the portion. The bar is busy and crowded during the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 pm specifically and the bartenders are very good. The restaurant takes on the flavor of a a good and steady neighborhood restaurant the is predictable. "

  • "Had a reservation, walked right in and we were seated immediately, server was great and our meal was delicious. What more can I say. We sat outside and you didn't feel like you were in a shopping center."

  • "Every trip to Fort Lauderdale we make sure we have dinner at Matteos' it is on the top of our list. Love everything especially the stuffed artichokes and the Shrimp Wendy...those burnt green beans to die for."

  • "This restaurant was suggested by a friend and we went for my wife's birthday and we had a wonderful dinner experience. I had the veal marsala and she had the calamari. Tables a bit crowded together. Our waiter Eduardo was great."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "i ordered a full portion of spaghetti with white clam sauce. the waiter insisted that we order at least one and a half portions, for the four of us. it turned out to be spaghetti with toasted garlick, we could barely find the clams, and the waiter agreed with us went back to his manager but came back with nothing. without the clams we didn't need another half order. i've had better meals at matteo's, they better raise the bar once again."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "Matteo's is a classic traditional Italian food restaurant, where it's best to order several meals among a group of people and eat them "family style". They have one of the best veal dishes I've ever tasted, anywhere, in their "Veal Chop Valdostana". Incredible dish. Every time I am in South Florida, I make a trip to Matteo's. It's worth it every time, even though this time we were staying at Doral and it took us nearly an hour during rush hour to get the Hallandale Beach Blvd. Despite this, it was still worth it!"

  • "Think that Italian for very good. Our waiter was very helpful and food was great. Also had enough leftovers for another meal. Great when you are on vacation. Will be here for another 2 weeks and will go back"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "One of the best Italian meals I've ever had. Excellent menu selection and second to none service. I'll go back for seconds as do many others so be sure to use Open Table and get a reservation. You'll need one regardless of what night you try to go. It's that good!!"

  • "Food was really mediocre. Service was fine but not great. There are too many great Italian places to waste money on Matteo's."
    Dined on 11/27/2013
  • "Matteo's is one of my favorite restaurants. When we think of Italian we always think of Matteo's. The food, service, and ambience are outstanding. My only footnote is to make a reservation in advance to avoid a long wait."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Great selection of your favorite Italian dishes cooked to order. Their chopped salad is one of the best and prepared by your waiter just the way you want it! Generous pour on wine by the glass and scrumptious deserts. We love to eat here later in the evening and just relax with a salad, entree and glass of wine. There are a lot of Italian restaurants in South Florida, but this is still one of the best."

    Dined on 11/20/2013
  • "This is really a neighborhood gem. The food is always good, the portions are ENORMOUS, the drinks are stiff, and the waiters are always very nice. We love Matteo's. Caesar Salad is to die for. Just the right mixture to ward off vampires. As far as the as the red checkered table cloth Italian food scene is concerned, this is our favourite and we go back again and again and again. just to make sure."

  • "Hadn't been in a long time, but overall reviews on open table seemed favorable. What a mistake. I was served the wrong glass of wine, and was shrugged off. In addition, the fish special was snapper. I stated that I disliked snapper, and went on to choose a pasta dish instead. My mom asked if they had any other fish available. Waiter said filet of sole and salmon. I chose the sole, and we discussed its preparation. I chose francais rather than broiled. I received snapper francais. Totally unacceptable. Total scam. Don't waste your money!!!"
