Diner Reviews
  • " Every Sunday we have gone it has been crowded and we have had to wait for 45 mins. one Sunday and last Sunday we waited over a half hour before our server came to our table to get our drink order. The servers.........have to make the drinks. In the future I will call ahead and see if they have a bartender working that evening!"

  • "Meals were served with excellent timing. Crusty bread that was hot! We both had the specials (rigatoni and fish). We took half of the portions home. Great flavors, not your chain flavors. Easy booking with open table."

  • "We have been here several times and never had a bad experience. The food is fresh and delicious and there's something for everyone. The calamari was amazing and so good. The pasta was delicious and very flavorful. Love this place!"

  • "Matteo's is absolutely amazing! By far my favorite Italian food. There is nothing else like it around the Indianapolis area (at least not that I have heard of or found). I go there as much as the budget will allow but would definitely recommend this place to anyone. The service is always great, with a few hiccups but that is to be expected, but it is barely noticed as it is made up for with the amazing food and great wine list! Everyone is polite and they are very accommodating. We buy the Groupons whenever they have them as well, just another reason to get in there and eat."

  • "Great service and good food. Nice little place right on the square!"

  • "One of our favorite spots to visit. Even though it is a little ways it is by far worth it. Outstanding service, very attentive. We always enjoy the calamari, very nice portion and the caesar salad is the best. Or course their complementary oil and homemade bread are to die for. Just the right spices and flavor. A couple of glasses of wine to top the evening off. We did not have an entrée this night as this amount we had filled us up nicely. If one would like to sit outside, their restaurant is right on the eastside of the square in downtown Noblesville."

  • "We have eaten here several times but were not impressed this time. There were a lot of families with small children. They were out of the specials by 7 and this was a Monday night. It took forever to get any service"

  • "Service was a bit slow this trip. Usually don't experience this but I think with it being last week of their Groupon offer, they were busier than expected. Waiter forgot a salad and charged for anchovies on Caesar salad after telling us they were out of anchovies. Also, $3.50 split charge for a salad seems extreme. Food was very good, large portions and atmosphere was great as always."

  • "Went here on a Sunday night. The room was very authentic and unique. We typically go to Capri but thought we would give Matteos a try since we live closer to it. The waitress was very average, a bit slow, and not particularly knowledgeable. Our expectations were that we were somewhere comparable to Capri but that was absolutely not the case. I told my friend who lives in Noblesville about our experience. Her response was "Well, it is good for Noblesville". That was the perfect response. If I had gone in with that expectation, I would have been pleased."

  • "We booked a table for six. Two couples who were married and one couple meeting for the first time. Our waiter was very accommodating and helpful as we picked out wine and needed more information. His name was Cosmos. He heard us talk about one of us having a birthday and brought out Panna Cotta dessert after we finished dinner for the birthday girl. The salmon was mouth watering and juicy. The portions were large. Hot and delicious! It was rather full with most tables taken which made it hard for the new couple to hear each other. But honestly I think they would go back when it was just the two of them."

  • "Our first time dining at Matteo's. We asked our waiter to suggest something from southern Italy or Sicily. Michael suggested a few dishes, but then brought the owner to our table. Emily suggested a dish off menu, that we customized with her to our personal tastes, and she paired an excellent wine with the dish. Dinner was outstanding! Michael provided excellent customer service! We finished with a wonderful Panna Cotta and raspberry sauce! What a wonderful evening! Don & Patti Sandman, Indianapolis"

  • "We had a great time, largely due to the incredibly friendly waitress. She gave great descriptions of the meals and made the evening really enjoyable. The food was good, not outstanding, but I would say the value was excellent as the prices were reasonable for the quality of the food. I also appreciated the ambience of this renovated historical building."

  • "The food was wonderful and our waiter was very attentive. The restaurant was full for a Monday night and it took quite a while before we were served our entree. It didn't matter though, since we were celebrating a birthday that night. Very warm ambience. Sinatra and music of that era was playing in the background at the perfect volume. A perfect choice for the evening."

Food was wonderful, service was friendly and professional, atmosphere lent itself to quiet conversation with mild music. Evening was everything we wanted to share with our friends and we'll all be looking forward to our next visit."

  • "Nice atmosphere but can't figure out why they would put huge fake trees right where you walk in and are greeted. Very obnoxious. Roasted red pepper ap was terrific. Bread extra hot and fresh. Oil dipping sauce flaverful but super garliciky so what out lovers! I had the white fish (called CA sea bass) couldn't tell if I liked fish as only flavor was heavy sauce it and the polenta where soaked with. I do not care for heavy Italian so would need to order something much simpler if we return. Unique find for rural but growing town. Nice martini list. Attentive service."

  • "Not all what it was cracked up to be. Food was nothing spectacular, took 45 minutes to get the food, at one point we did not see our waitress for more than 40 minutes. Had to send my steak back (ordered it medium well - it came out almost rare). Special occasion for my wife and I's 22nd Anniversary...had asked for the flowers that were delivered there be delivered to our table AFTER we were seated and NOT at the table when we were seat. The flowers were at the table when we were taken to our table. Took 25 minutes for us to get our wine after we ordered it. The on good things that I can say are that the waitress was friendly and did her best. We were given a great table at the front of the restaurant at the window. "

  • "This was the second time my wife and I have dined at Matteo's. I love the online reservations. We are greeted cheerfully and quickly seated at a quiet table for two. Our waiter answered every questions and never told me no (I hate being told no). From the cocktail to the specials we enjoyed every minute of our dining experience at the restaurant."
