Diner Reviews
  • "The food is quite tasty but don't expect the hostess to treat your reservation any differently than the walk ins."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The food was strictly average and we had probably the most in attentive waiter I have ever experienced at a restaurant. Long wait for a salad and then two minutes later our entrees arrived. We were halfway through the entrees when he brought our bottle of wine. Did not stay for dessert. Bright spot is a very good Italian wine list by the glass or bottle."

  • "We went to many Italian restaurants in Maui. This is the best. Real Italian food."

  • "My wife and I were in the mood for Italian, we do a search of too reataurants in Wailea and Matteo's show up. After reading the reviews, we decided to give it a try. Hands down the best Italian food on the island! We liked it so much we went back the next night and took some pizzas to go. Matteo himself in the kitchen both nights-"

  • "We received the recommendation to try Matteo's from a local and boy did it live up to the hype! Food was some of the best Italian we've had anywhere, wine list was fantastic, service and staff were exceptional, the the outdoor dining area was great! The only bummer is that from the outdoor area you only have a partial ocean view, but for us, it didn't matter based on the exceptional meal and experience we had. This is now one of our favorite Maui restaurants and we will be going back for sure."

  • "Nice focaccia bread. The tuna and swordfish entrees were very nice. Kids can get plain pasta, pasta with meatballs or bolognese sauce. Good wine selection. Very reasonable prices."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The food was great. Had the bruschetta as the appetizer. Very authentic Italian. I had their fish special, which was also unique and tasty. The only downside was having to wait for the check. It seemed to take 10-15 minutes to process the transaction, something that usually should take less than 5 minutes."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "We went back to Matteo's for a second time this trip to have an early dinner to celebrate our 4 year old granddaughters birthday. Matteo and his wife treated her like a princess! (It was also Matteo's birthday!) And the meal was fabulous...we shared several appetizers then most of us had pizzas. The special pizza of the day and the upcountry pizza were outstanding. Very tasty. I highly recommend Matteo's for a good meal. Warm and friendly atmosphere, and a "neighborhood restaurant" feel."

  • "Stay away from the creamy, buttery, mess called chicken saltibocco."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My wife and I decided we wanted a nice Italian meal while in Maui. Matteo's is located off the main strip in Wailea but is still very convenient. What gem! The service was outstanding, They were very knowledge on the dishes as well as the extensive wine list. The food was authentic and very flavorful, must try the meatballs! We enjoyed it so much we went twice. Besides the great meal the prices were very reasonable. We enjoyed it so much we went twice."

  • "What a great, reasonably priced restaurant!! Matteo used to be the chef at Ferraro's at the Four Seasons. In Wailea, there seems to be "ok" family restaurants, affordable pizzerias, or very high-end restaurants (such as Ferraro's, Spago, Capische, Ka'Ana Kitchen and Morimoto). Matteo's fits perfectly in between. Very high quality ingredients, the knowledge of an accomplished chef, very nice ambiance at very reasonable prices. Last night I had home made ravioli filled with mahimahi and arugula with a sauce of olive oil, white wine, garlic, kalamata olives and diced tomatoes; every bit as good as a dish that would be served at any of the very high-end restaurants mentioned above w/o spending a small fortune. Lunches are also great."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "First off, the Italian wine selection is amazing. I've never found anything similar, they have 55+ wines by the glass, available at 3oz or 6oz, which is great if you want to sample several of them. The service was great, attentive but not over the top. The calamari was dry and cheesy, definitely would not order again. The tuna was great; fresh and perfectly cooked. The pasta was also great. I would return for the wine selection and fish, maybe next time try the pizza too!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The lasagna special was amazing!! We added the meatballs with fennel sausage on the side for an extra treat. Yummmmm! We also experienced the sausage and mushroom pizza and it was to die for!! Go!!!"

  • "We've been to Matteo's several times, and it consistently delivers the goods. The food is quite good, the pricing seems very fair, the outside patio is very nice for dinner (we've been there when the inside was a bit loud). The staff is very friendly. All in all, one of my favorite restaurants on Maui."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had bruschetta and shrimp for appetizers and chicken saltimbocca and seafood fettuccine for dinner. Appetizers were nice and light, very good olive oil on bruschetta. Homemade fettuccine was delicious and cooked al dente. We really enjoyed Matteo's at their other location where they primarily served pizza. We like the new Matteo's even better with the expanded menu. Price is right, too. I would highly recommend Matteo's for authentic Italian, just as good as high end Ferraro's and Capische, but at a lower price point. Matteo's lacks in ambiance, but is definitely worth a visit."

  • "We had a fabulous meal. I didn't know what to expext because we usually go to restaurants we know in Maui. Wow...I has the best Raviolis and salad ever. Run...don't walk to Mateo Osteria!"

  • "Great food, great service!! Everyone in our group had an awesome night. We really enjoyed sitting on the patio."

  • "What a great find! You have to go here when you are in Maui! It's not the beach side dinning but the food is awesome and a great wine list that is reasonably priced."

  • "Service and food were outstanding. Pasta putenesca and seafood pasta were very tasty. 64 wines by the glass. Will definitely be back."

  • "Our family tried this restaurant and enjoyed it so much that we revisited it a few days later. My daughter especially enjoyed the healthy chocolate dessert. Thanks, Matteo's!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "You'll love the decor, the ambience, the service, the wine, and, drumroll, please, the delicious food! Be sure to take time to review the wine booklet menu before you venture into the food choices. Wine is on tap here: have the server explain. Pastas are made on site. Sauces are rich in antioxidant fresh tomatoes and a chef's personal touch. You're going to like Matteo's Osteria, I guarantee."

  • "Our family had dinner at Matteo's in June 2014. The food was fantastic, the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food and the service was excellent. Wait staff was friendly and very knowledgeable. Great wine list. Will definitely return next time we are in Maui."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "This was our first time at the new location. The food was great and we were made to feel like family. We will be returning every time we visit Maui."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Nice homemade pasta, beautiful and creative salads. If you sit outside you can see the ocean, a slim view but it's still there. My pet peeve, is learning different menu options while hearing other servers tell other tables. If the restaurant offers 1/2 orders of salads, pasta, entrees, then tell ALL OF YOUR GUESTS, not just the ones you feel like letting in on it. After our salads we were stuffed...too much food, too much waste...no room for desserts or after dinner drinks. :("

  • "Very good food! Not your typical spaghetti or pizza. Gourmet dining. Friendly and relaxing."

  • "One of the nicest meals we had on Maui and great service from our waitress, Gill"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "I love this place however the Satimbocca were a miss, too rich, too big, and served on an appetizer plate. Everything else was outstanding. We will be back and highly recommend this restaurant. Great value and fantastic wine list."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Dinner was Outstanding and our waiter was the best. Even the owner comes around to check on you. We have gone for many years at the old location which recently moved in December. "
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "First time to try the 'new' Mateos. We were pleased! Waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable, menu had a nice selection, and the wine list was BIG for 'by the glass' which was a nice surprise. We dined outside, and he quiet setting was nice change to the now noisy bustle up the road at Monkeypod. 4 of us dined, all enjoyed the food and our evening at Mateos. We will definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "The food is classic Italian, the presentation classic and inspiring. Friendly and elegant atmosphere. A bit out of the way, but well worth the effort."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Great service and delicious meal. Our table shared a pizzette as an appetizer with a glass of wine while waiting for our entrees. Fettuccini, lamb pappardelle and chicken saltimboca were exceptional. Our hostess was lovely and checked on the diners through the evening. No room for dessert after such a great meal. Don't miss an opportunity to dine here!"
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "This gem is an unapologetic tribute to the flavors and techniques of cooking in Italy. After two weeks of dining in paradise, with Hawaiian and Asian-fusion food around every corner, it was a pleasant experience to sit down to a traditional italian meal. I ordered the Medaglioni (tenderloin with gorgonzola mashed potatoes) and my wife had the Carbonara pizzette. The steak lived up to it's fancy title, and the pizzette was one of the three best things we ate during our week in Maui. The service was top notch, and we would definitely return. The only minor blemish is the restaurant's location, the beautifully decorated patio overlooks the parking lot of a strip-mall."

  • "This is a wonderful find - tucked in a small shopping area just up the street from the resorts on Wailea. We sat outdoors and caught the most amazing sunset. The wine list is outstanding. Our server was knowledgeable and didn't rush us at all…..we had such a relaxing evening. The food was delicious. My husband had the lamb pasta and I had the pumpkin pasta….both perfect. The restaurant was not very busy - we were told it's only been open a few years. I hope the word gets out and they continue the excellent service and quality. I will certainly spread the word to anyone going to Maui. I never like eating at the big resorts ---- venturing out to the local spots is always more enjoyable. "

  • "While this isn't a restaurant with an oceanfront view, it is one of the best restaurants in Wailea...or Maui for that matter. The service at this restaurant is exceptional...the front of the house works well together to ensure a perfect dining experience. Now for the food...the homemade pasta is some of the best I've ever had...starters and desserts are great too. I especially enjoyed the delicious Lamb and home made pasta and ragout. My husband had the tenderloin and thoroughly enjoyed it. The Executive Chef/Owner is very involved in the guest experience. You can clearly see he checks every starter, entrée, etc. that leaves the open kitchen. On aside note, just an observation, but the staff genuinely seems to love working there."

  • "We were greeted and seated immediately upon arrival. Water was served within three or four minutes and our server asked for our drink order, they were delivered within a reasonable amount of time where upon we were told the specials. Our orders were taken after we were given enough time to enjoy our drinks. The food was presented in a quiet polite way, after a few minutes we were checked on but really left alone to enjoy our lovely meals. I can think of nothing that wasn't done perfectly. We will be going back"

  • "Lunch at Matteo's was a first time experience for my friend/client...she loved it...the wait staff was very accommodating to our request to let us share 1/2 of each other's sandwich so we could both enjoy two wonderful creations! Each time I dine at Matteo's I feel like I am back in Europe! And there is a small ocean view during the day...making the experience even more "Maui""

  • "So glad they finally reopened!!! Was so excited to go there with my wife for our "date night" again. The old MATTEO'S was our go to without even thinking of another place to go. The food was outstanding as usual with a slightly different menu. Our waiter Michael did an excellent job in explaining the menu and the specials for the night and helped my wife pick out a great wine for her dinner. I chose one of the specials, as I did in the past, and as usual was pleasantly surprised with the flavor of the food. "
