- Family nightLOTSOFUSDined on 11/8/2014The renovations were beautiful!. We've been going there for a long time. It now looks a little like Carmine's and is definitely a family style restaurant, and that's why we love it. We have a big family and growing. They are kid friendly, which is great when the kids cry and the noise level is perfect so no one really notices they are crying. (lol)Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- First Time There - Nice placevinnysingsdoowopDined on 10/26/2014We enjoyed eating there & would go again. The wine was pricy but good. Nice night out. The staff were very good & friendly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Nice place…terrible parking!!EileenLIVIPDined on 10/23/2014Matteo's is a nice place with consistently good food. But….the valet situation in the front is terrible!! I circled the block 3 times before I could pull in in front of the restaurant. There is no parking on any of the streets so you are forced to wait for the one guy to run back and forth. I would not go back for that reason and look forward to the re-opening of Huntington…with a parking lot!!Special Features:
- OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 10/20/2014This restaurant has had a major renovation and its beautiful. Have been going to this restaurant when it was owned by others for the last 25 plus years. They did a beautiful job!!Special Features:
- First time back not to happypmnyVIPDined on 10/13/2014This was our first time back to the new Matteo's since it was renovated. Food was very good but the service was terrible. We felt ignored. The waiter and one of the captions had problems with Kitchen communication, orders were extremely late getting to the tables. We were not the only table experiences this issue. When the food did arrive it was slapped down on the table and not even served to us, which is fundamental in a family style restaurant. Willing to give it another try hopefully they have worked out the kinks. The dinning room and bar is nicely renovated.
- Awesome Italian!kimberfDined on 10/11/2014The food and ambiance were both excellent!! I highly recommend the Burratta appetizer, vodka sauce, and the skirt steak special.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A new Matteo'sSharDined on 8/3/2014A 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 townSpecial Features:
- Excellent upgradeDiningwithkidsDined on 7/31/2014The revamped restaurant has a great look & feel. In addition, the food is as superb as ever. Only qualm is that they didn't accept my coupon.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- New LookOpenTable Diner Since 2004VIPDined on 6/5/2014Went 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good- needs practice thoughArgoldsteVIPDined on 5/31/2014Good food- pretty place - service was ok- need practice but should get betterSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Old new Matteo'sElyseVIPDined on 5/18/2014We've been coming to this restaurant for years. After it changed ownership, the crowd changed (for the better) but the food and service remained true. Newly renovated, it's even better than before. Highly recommend.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Delicious food in a chic settingGreekgddssDined on 5/15/2014Our 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, snotty atmosphereYummyVIPDined on 5/11/2014I 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.Special Features:
- greatgreatfoodDined on 5/11/2014Mothers 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.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ExcellentpsoaresDined on 4/23/2014Matteo'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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- MehOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 4/13/2014It was just okay. Chopped salad too much vinager . Eggplant parm cut too thick and not crispy. Service was terrific.Special Features:
- Would not return.MLOODined on 4/13/2014Service 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 didjeffvDined on 4/12/2014This 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.
- Never a disappointmentLongIslabdDinersDined on 4/4/2014Great place to go with a group. Can get a bit noisy but the new decor, good food and service will never disappoint! Upscale crowd. Ttook a while for bartenders to acknowledge us and bar was pretty empty!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- It's backF8sboyzDined on 3/29/2014The 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...Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- disappointing experience.Harryc27VIPDined on 2/8/2014disappointing 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!
- Not the Matteo's I'm used to!Cq33Dined on 2/1/2014I 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. On a good note...the waiter and busboy were very nice and attentive and the Valet guys were great!!! They had a great sense of humor!
- Great FoodOpenTable Diner Since 2007VIPDined on 2/1/2014Once again we had delicious food at Matteos in Roslyn. They make you feel like family. Had a great time!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- should have been advised thatshenDined on 1/31/2014should have been advised that restaurant is under construction , hazardous conditions should have not been open for business while under construction ! not a safe enviroment
- 9 Person birthday dinner,OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIPDined on 1/18/20149 Person birthday dinner, everything EXCELLENT! Highly recommend.
- WonderfulMaryVIPDined on 12/28/2013A 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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- excellent experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 12/25/2013I 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.Special Features:
- Good job!AnitaVIPDined on 12/25/2013Matteo'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!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
