    They always find a seat for you. Never pressured to leave. What I'm presuming is the owner always greets you when you walk in and thanks you when you leave.

    Service staff very friendly and cordial. Food was sadly generic. Pink vodka sauce redundant on various pasta dishes. Had mussels as appetizer they were microscopic. A baked penne entree equivalent to a frozen Lean Cuisine meal. Wife had sage chicken, with cafeteria grade rice pilaf and a dallop of spinach. Looked like a hospital meal. All palatable but nothing to memoriable or imaginative that would make you want to rush back with friends....and we won't. Menu is pretty routine. Nice ambiance (though they do get a "come as you are bar crowd trickeling in) and again really nice staff. Decent wine by the glass, they make pizza too - cant speak on that nor dessert or coffee so cant paint a full picture. Overall pretty disappointing italian food, many, many, better choices in a ten mile radius at this price point. Unless we hit it on an off night (late during midweek). I would give this two thumbs down.

    Great food and pleasant service. We stopped in the bar area for an after dinner drink and enjoyed good conversation with the bartender, manager, and a few other customers. This was my second time there and both times I enjoyed it. I will definitely be back again.

    We are very local but haven’t been in for years. Very pleased and will return soon. We were sat right away. Waiter was very professional. They were busy, which is a good thing, but we were very pleased with the service. My spaghetti bolognese was among the best I’ve ever had. My girlfriends chicken dish was very tender, delicious. We both took half home and had another meal. This could become a regular local “Go to” place for us.

    Sadly, this was our first, and likely last visit. On a busy Saturday evening, there were only two waitstaff for the full dining room-they simply could not keep up. My husband had a super pasta dish, however my meal was disappointing, a surf and turf, the steak was so burned on the exterior, I had to cut the crust off. We won’t be back.

    Great service and high quality food. Dedicated ownership. We go there often and we see the owners working hard to get it right. Excellent chocolate martini’s !! Nice bar area. Went there with my son and his fiancé this past Friday night they thought it was great as well. Highly recommend Matta Donna.

    When we arrived for our reservation, we spoke to Zach, I think he was the owner. He was very pleasant. We had a quick laugh about how open table booked the reservation when they were already booked. Zach accommodated us anyway. We were sitting down before or scheduled reservation time. Our waiter was very easy going, and had a great personality. The food was excellent. The shrimp appetizer was delicious. My wife isn't a fan of lemons, but she loved the dish anyway. Our dinner was phenomenal. We had a couple glasses of wine, and then Zach came by at the end of our meal, and talked to us for a few minutes, where he then offered us a free after dinner drink. He recommended the Ferretti biscotti(I think that's how it's spelt). That drink was one of the best after dinner drinks I have ever had! Served over rocks, and it tasted exactly like a biscotti. We will definitely be going back there!

    Great food and friendly service. The 4 star rating for service (vs. 5) was due to our waiter being a little too inexperienced and flighty but he was very nice and overall did a good job.

    Matta Donna is one of our favorite local restaurants that probably gets overlooked since some may feel it's just a pizza place. While it does have amazing pizza, it offers so much more. Their Specials are always fabulous as well.

    This was our first time at your restaurant. It was a while before we were greeted, even though the restaurant wasn't busy. The service was a little slow, but we were talking, so it wasn't too bad. My dish, citrus tagliatelle, was underwhelming. I don't know if we would come back.

    The resturant first impression was great. We were seated next to the bar, the staff was so loud with the customers at the bar it made for an unpleasant dinner. The food for the value was not worth it. I had eggplant , it was tough. I might go back to sit at the bar and try pizza. But that is about it.

    The food at Matta is consistently good. I had the skirt steak the other night and it was grilled perfectly. so delicious. We always love their pizza, it is thin crust and the best around. The grilled asparagus brushetta is great. They will make any dish how you like it. Great find in the Montville, Boonton area.

    Matta Donna never disappoints. Gorgeous clubby-meets-classy craftsman style dining room and bar, fresh seafood, meats and vegetables and interesting pizzas, thin or regular crust. And hands down, the most attentive. team-oriented service in the Boonton area. Highly recommended.
