Best Restaurant for ME for Now...
I found this place by luck on yelp.. With outstanding reviews and decided to give it a try. It was outstanding... Not too expensive. Great staff.. The waiter could have asked me to order a stone... but the way he spoke ( all italian and all... ) i would have said sure... The wine was great.. Good all over.. Definitely going back.. I ordered a bottle of Edizone Cinque Autoctoni. You can't go wrong with this... And if you are not a wine person , ask for the dessert wine..

Fabulous in every respect
Fabulous in every respect and blissfully quiet if you want to visit instead of just chow down.

An old favorite
I come here often with my 97 year old cousin. We are always greeted by name, the waiters know what we like to drink, and everyone is respectful of our needs. The food is always good, and when I brought by grandchildren, the restaurant accommodated some fussy tastes. It's an reliable place for a good dinner.

Lovely upscale Italian restaurant with comfortable booths, excellent food & service that has been in business for over 40 years. There is an extensive wine and alcohol menu, & a booth named Frank Sinatra as he & his friends were frequent visitors.

The Best Eggplant Parma
The restaurant is conveniently located to our favorite movie theater, The Landmark. It is in walking distance.
The food is consistantly good and they do make the best Eggplant Parma. Excellent Cesar salad as well.

I have been to Matteo's many
I have been to Matteo's many times and love it. I've always enjoyed the service, food, bar service and friendliness. This was the first time my Husband joined me. Unfortunately, he was not happy with his spagetti...actually, the sauce. He did enjoy the meat-balls. He aso liked the setting, how quiet it was and the friendliness of the server.
I know I will return. I hope he will join me as well.

Matteo's is famous for many
Matteo's is famous for many of its signature dishes, but it behooves me to note that their Vitello Tonnato is the best I've ever eaten -- a perfect starter and ample enough to share in a self-designed tasting menu.

Great great great
I hadn't been to Matteo's in years as I moved to the 818 but was more than please to find the food top notch, hot (a rare feat to be honest) and excellent. The ambiance and history was still there and the redo on the restaurant's look was classy and sleek. Most importantly it was quiet enough to have a conversation in - another rare feat! Excellent job and keep this place going. Losing an icon like Juniors was tough but losing Matteo's would be a shame.

Been a while since we've been back to Matteos to experience it's new owners. Happy to see that they've kept a lot of the old charm of the atmosphere in the restaurant and that the food was how we remember it....excellent!!

Great Histoic LA Gem in Westwood
Matteo's is a gem reflecting old Hollywood glamour. The restaurant design has been updated but true to the original - an intimate dining room with deep red leather booths. The restaurant has a great Hollywood history.
The service was exceptional - friendly and knowledgeable, but not too formal. Our waiter knew the menu well and made great suggestions.
The host clearly loves the place and is more than willing to tell you about its history if you like.
The food was traditional but exceptional. We had two excellent pasta dishes and a few delicious appetizers. The prices were very reasonable given the quality of the food and service.
An old LA institution, but with updated flare - a new favorite in LA.

The old Matteo's is new and fresh on the inside with classic Italian food and quiet enuf for six old friends to enjoy themselves . Look forward to going back .

I only have one bad thing
I only have one bad thing to say, it can be a bit dark at times. Otherwise, everything was fantastic. The manager has great stories from the old days and welcomes you in with a firm handshake. The wait staff are great and very informative. The food was amazing, I would definitely come back here.

another great evening at Matteo's
As always, the food, service and setting were wonderful. Kevin made it even more special by sending over (discretely!) a freshly-baked slice of almond tarte to say Happy Birthday.
Matteo's is a great restaurant experience.

They do everything exactly
They do everything exactly right, including providing a beautiful space where you can visit with your friends - a rarity in LA. Food is scrumptious, service superb and ambiance gorgeous.
Other restaurants should look to Matteos as a model of what they could do!
10/26/2013 5:00:00 PM
Matteo's is without a doubt the best restaurant in Los Angeles. The food is superb and the service is excellent. Kevin, the manager, visits every table to be sure everything and everyone is satisfied and happy. He will also give you a short history of the restaurant and the art if you ask. My girfriend and I go there often. It is also a great place for a romantic dinner or special occasion. Recommended Highly!

One has to anticipate some slippage in service during the holidays, but Matteo's is consistently a favorite with good food and excellent service.
