A word from Osteria Mattone
Osteria Mattone is a neighborhood restaurant serving regional Italian cuisine with a heavy focus on Roman fare, combining the casual spirit of an Osteria with the more formal dining of a Trattoria.

We open for dinner at 5pm Tuesday-Sunday, and we happily accept reservations for our Trattoria dining rooms. Our patio and Osteria dining room are available on a "first come-first served" basis for walk-in guests.

We look forward to serving you!

Diner Reviews
  • "Osteria Matone has very authentic and delicious Italian food. Their Pasta Bolognese is wonderful, and it's prepared the traditional Italian way with Besciamella sauce rather than ricotta cheese. They make their own pasta in house which makes it much lighter than dried pasta, and they serve it many different ways. They also have a great selection of seafood and classic meat entrees including ribeye steak, lamb chops, and veal. The desserts are truly amazing, and very different from the fare you usually see on Italian menus."

  • "This is the best and most authentic Italian meal my wife and I have had since we got home from a two week trip to Italy last year. Everything from the appetizers to the desserts was simply amazing. Our waiter had a great wine recommendation that paired perfectly with our meal. We will be back soon."

  • "So hard to make a final decision here! We wanted homemade pasta but I've had the lambchops and mushroom risotto before and always crave them, too. In the end we decided to order a bunch of appetizers (tuna, salumi plate, meatballs) and then shared a pasta (how do they get that Carbonara to be not too heavy??) and a salad. That left room for dessert - OMG! I'm so crazy about that baba rhum sauce! Finished off with a little amaro on the rocks...still recovering from all that food but it was worth it!"

  • "We will definitely return to this gem, so many items on the menu we wanted to try. The food was superb, as was the service. Indoor atmosphere was good for quiet conversations, outdoor seating is something we will look forward to as the weather cools. Chef Ted my sea bass was perfection on a plate!"

  • "Amazing dinner this week. The food was memorable and our server was knowledgeable and friendly. I was with a group and was able to try several things - all were very good but there were a few stand outs. The scallop and cauliflower puree appetizer was amazing. Scallops were cooked perfectly and the puree had great flavor. I would go back just for that! The oxtail/short rib ravioli was also incredible - definitely the winning entree at the table. Both were recommended by our server, as was a perfect wine pairing with the ravioli. For desert we tried the bread pudding, chocolate/hazelnut cake and panna cotta. All were good but the bread pudding was definitely the winner! Can't wait to go back to Osteria Mattone."

  • "I took my mom and aunt here for lunch last week for my aunt's birthday. They are two very particular Italian ladies and they loved everything. They even loved the sauce which never happens. I would highly recommend this restaurant for lunch and dinner. We have done both. Our food was wonderful, service was perfect and the place is beautiful!"

  • "amazing food, poor front desk and waiter(for our table) the other waiter next to us was very helpful to his guests. felt as though we were not welcome it was just a place to eat.The owners brother we saw on Atlanta Eats came out to greet every table except ours. It was myself and my wife. Maybe it was the tattoo sleeves but who knows? We were dressed very nice and ready for a great experience. I am a business owner in North Ga and I was disappointed in the lack of interest our waiter showed us and we decided to just eat and enjoy each other and leave. Maybe it was our age(42) but the other tables were all in their 50's so maybe he needed to cater to them more. AMAZING food great location but just very high brow."

  • "The food is very good but everything is a la carte and the servings are not large. Ends up being a very expensive evening. There are 2 different eating areas with a more formal side and a more casual area. The outside patio looked inviting but the weather was not cooperative. Service is good with a well-trained and friendly staff. Enjoyed it but not enough to spend that much on one meal."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "My only suggestion is that I think the menu is somewhat limited in both entre's and appetizers. It needs more fish and steak options"

  • "Took a party of six to Osteria Mattone on Canton Street and had a great time. We had met the owner Ryan on the Roswell Food Tour at his other Canton Street restaurant Table & Main. He remembers us and even more impressive he remembered that one in our party could not have pepper. The wine was delicious. Everyone in our party got a different dish and loved it!"

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Osteria Mattone and it was a wonderfully romantic experience. The entire staff, and I do me ENTIRE - from our waiter to the owner to the Chef - all congratulated us personally. They truly went the extra mile to accommodate our dinner requests, making a special dish possible for my foodie husband. Thank you for making a special night even more so!"

  • "After a less than great experience in May, I went back with a small family group. Chris was outstanding and made the dinner wonderful! The food tasted great and was paced very well. The whole fish was spectacular and something I will go back and order. Don't just get pasta here although it was great but get the entrees also! Desserts are yummy although my daughter's sorbet to was a little too small. I will try OM again now that I had the best meal out of the 5 times I've visited! Thank you, Ryan!"

  • "My husband and I went to Osteria Mattone for the first time the other night and absolutely loved it. The wine and cocktail lists are great and the food was wonderful. It's very easy to overeat. The service was excellent and the wait staff had a great sense of humor. We'll definitely be back soon."

  • "After waiting for several months to line up a table, I expected more, but left underwhelmed. The food was awesome and that alone will probably bring me back. Unfortunately, the service was mediocre and the inside dining area was WAY TO LOUD. Our waiter seemed unfamiliar with the wine list, but did not seek help form other members of the staff. When we asked about a specific wine that listed for $90, he countered with one listing for $144 that he heard was good. Though nicely done architecturally, the acoustics were terrible. One loud couple in the middle of the room destroyed the conversation at our table and those adjacent to it."

  • "This was our second trip to Osteria Mattone and it was just as good as the first. We brought friends both times and they were also impressed. The service is comfortable, while also professional. The food is outstanding. The experience has been great both trips. We will definitely go back"

  • "We went for our wedding anniversary. It was fantastic. Julie is a top notch server. That is the best clams linguini I have ever had. Fresh little neck clams. Perfectly al dente noodles! My husband's Hake fish was delicious as well. Order the Carpaccio. Always a special experience there."

  • "A gem in Roswell. Thought I would take my wife out for a surprise dinner at newer Canton St. restaurant. We made reservation at opening time 5pm. to avoid any crowds. The menu was simple but with a wide range of Italian dishes. The waiter was knowledgeable, and helpful. Wife had oxtail raviolis and I had lasagna. Both were excellent. The specialty drinks were also unique and enjoyed."

  • "We went to Osteria Mattone for our 3-year anniversary and had a wonderful experience. They left a card on the table for us from all of the staff as well as flowers. They even treated us to dessert! Our waiter had good knowledge of the menu and wine selection and made excellent recommendations for both. I would highly recommend the lamb and risotto. We have been to Italy before, and the food took us right back. Overall we had a special anniversary date and some amazing food. I would definitely recommend them for an anniversary dinner (or their sister restaurant Table and Main across the street)."

  • "Margherita pizza was good, but the Salumi & Formaggi was better. Agnolotti di Oxo was excellent. Very subtle flavor. Spaghetti alla Carbonara also very good. Scallopini di Vitello was tough and served with only two pieces. The rapini was stringy and very garlic-y. Dessert was far better. Due to nut allergies, I was limited (you'd think most restaurants would be conscious of that!). The Baba Rhum was superb! Blueberry and raspberry sorbet was very flavorful! Valet parking seems unnecessary since there's a small lot behind the restaurant."

  • "What a wonderful first visit to this restaurant for lunch! From the moment we arrived, the service was excellent. Friendly people were near the front door and offered to make me comfortable with a beverage until my friend, a birthday honoree, arrived. We enjoyed delicious food, and the staff made us feel welcome and were very attentive. We will go back! A sixtieth birthday was celebrated that day, a very good memory for both of us."

  • "My husband and I tried the veal meatballs and burrata salad -- molto bene! The entrees were good but quite rich. The gelati was light and refreshing--get the triplet! My only criticism was the busboy not bringing plates for us to share the starter. However I find this all too common in restaurants."

  • "Being of Italian heritage, I am skeptical about restaurant Italian items, but Osteria Mattone is the real deal. From the appetizers to the main courses to the desserts, the food is authentically prepared. The bar service is top notched too! It is our "go to" restaurant for a casual lunch to an impressive dinner for clients."
