    A new look makes for a new dining experience. Delicious Dinner! Love the Shrimp Luciano & Chicken Marsala however expected more shrimp - waiter should have informed us Full Order not enough for 4 to share. Waiter seemed as if it was his first day not very knowledgeable about the wine, entrees or how to guide our ordering and no bus service to support him - had to ask several times for bread and water and never refilled - service was antithesis of food - but beautiful new atmosphere fabulous food and oh so convenient living in town

    Went to Matteo's last night after not dining there for over a year. When I walked in I didn't even recognize the place....it's absolutely beautiful in there now and I will definitely be back. I dined by the bar and the bartender Sue was incredible, so helpful and just a pleasure to be around. Of course the food was just as fabulous.

    Our waiter was fantastic, attentive without being overbearing. The decor is beautiful. The food was great, though the NY strip was a bit chewy. The risotto, corn avocado salad, burrata, calamari and Bronzino were all delicious. Their truffle fries were simply addictive. Overall a very yummy meal.

    I would have liked to have given this place a higher rating as I thought the food was delicious and our waitress was very nice, however the hostess was pretty snotty and came over to tell us that our their next reservation for our table was over 2 hours later! Maybe some people take very long to eat, but we do not and were out of there well before the next seating. I was annoyed that she even came over to tell us that as soon as we sat down. We were about 15 minutes late due to traffic, but still there was plenty of time for us to eat and enjoy our meal without being told that we would have to leave in over 2 hours.

    Mothers day is always a nightmare when you eat out. Not at Matteo's. they had wait staff for every table. Food brought out quickly by more than one person. I think there were more workers than diners. food was delicious. staff was fabulous. Place was immaculate. they even clean their menus. you want french fries for the kids - you get them. very helpful with the kids food. best mothers day out at a restaurant. will definitely go back. A little pricey but worth it.

    Matteo's in Roslyn has done a beautiful makeover. the décor is fresh, crisp and very inviting. We had the pleasure to meet the Executive Chef Anthony, who treated us to a delicious creamy Buffalo mozzarella, and tuna tartar. it was excellent! I ordered the sesame crusted tuna over a mixture of vegetables with a light soy, just delicious. my children ordered a chicken Matteo's on the bone, the chicken was moist, busting with flavor. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal, the waiter, the ambience. Kudo's to the new owners, chef, manager Giuseppe, and staff well worth to re-visit the new Matteo's!

    Service was rushed and pushy. Wines by the glass was encouraged even when asked for the list of bottled wines, I guess it's more lucrative. Dishes were removed before fork hit the table. I should add that the restaurant was only about half full. The only reason for the three stars is that the food was good, not great, just good. Manager embarrassed the waiter in front of us......not a good dining experience and we are used to fine dining as well as casual. We have eaten in the Huntington restaurant and had a much better experience.

    This location recently did a complete renovation. The service staff was inexperienced and need more guidance. The bar had problems with simple cocktails like Bloody Mary and Vodka Collins. While the service was not perfect the food was good. After the kinks are worked out I'm sure the service will improve.

    The new Matteo's is as nice as any NYC restaurant. They take reservations! And they sat us within minutes of our reservation. The food? We were given the option of a "trattoria menu" or off menu with Matteo's specialities. Of course we knew what to order. Unfortunately, the food was just "ok". The chopped salad-not a Matteo's salad. Although we ordered without dressing it was seasoned. Not chopped enough. The zucchini linguini -too wide, sauce was definately not Chris's meat sauce. Shrimp Wendy? Soggy stringbeans. Not burnt like we are accustomed to. Overall, we"ll return. Maybe they should be a new restaurant, rather then be something it's not...

    disappointing experience. To our surprise the restaurant is being renovated, which was not on the open table site.I did not enjoy the paint smell which was apparent. Our server was not good at all. we sat for just a bit and then the waiter came and said would we like to order drinks.Yes, but what about a drink menu? The waiter returned to say they didn't have the brand scotch and no Baileys but, would go to the liquor store for some. We waited. some time later he said sorry no Baileys. still waiting for my ice and oh yes more bread. we asked three times. When our waiter served our food I asked him to drain off the oil since it was all over my eggplant. He poured it off back into the pasta dish. Ugh! we will not be going back!

    I would not recommend going to this restaurant. The salad was bitter, the Shrimp Oreganata was soggy and tasteless, the chicken Marsala was tough and the rice was stiff and watery.

    A nice red-sauce kind of Italian restaurant, but very well done. Portions are huge, menu is huge, specials are great -- you'll have no trouble finding what you want at Matteo's. Service is outstanding: whenever a server sees that you need something, he's there to help, whether or not he's actually your server. They truly anticipate your every need without hovering. Matteo's can be a bit noisy, possibly because it's very group-friendly, but on the other hand this is not the place to go for a quiet, intimate meal. It's a big friendly Italian restaurant with a great menu and outstanding service. Enjoy!

    I wasn't sure what to expect dining out on Christmas day....we usually have dinner at home, but decided to try eating out this year. Matteo's was an excellent choice. The food was wonderful, the atmosphere was warm and friendly and the service was excellent. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. I would definitely go back to this restaurant for a holiday or any day. My family and I had a very enjoyable Christmas dinner experience.

    Matteo's was opened for Christmas. They had our table ready upon arrival. Lots of staff, very attentive, good service, witty waiter (Alex). Place was packed, but the food was great. Delicious bolognese sauce and a melt in your mouth skirt steak. Not the most attractive space, but the wait staff elevated the ambiance. Would definitely recommend and I'm coming back!

    Had the best baked clams ever. Seafood risotto was fantastic. The ricotta cheese cake was perfect - moist and tasted so great I wanted to keep eating but was too full. At least six different wait staff made sure we were treated as though we were alone but the restaurant was fully booked. I can't wait to go back!

    We visited Matteo's with a group of 11, including 6 kids. The food was delicious, and the waiting staff attentive, cordial, and very friendly. We had been there previously, and had some doubts as the restaurant has changed management. Fortunately, the new owners do not disappoint! Matteo's continues to be a great neighborhood spot, a true family restaurant with lots of great food served fast, and attentive staff.

Waiter claims full order was enough two people no way? Pasta was very good and 1/2 order was more than enough for two people. Need to inform customer the size of the portions.
