Matta Donna has delicious food with a lovely presentation. Our young waiter was very attentive
and very thorough. The atmosphere was nice and quiet as it was a tuesday night. We will definitely be returning!! loved it.

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.

Wait staff were friendly and attentive. Food was just average. Prices were reasonable. Not terrible, but all four in our party agreed we wouldn't go again.

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.

We were a party of 9 and the service was amazing and staff super friendly! Food was typical Italian but good for the price. I would go back if in the 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.

Good experience with food and wine every time we have visited. They are very accommodating in making changes in their menu items for special requests. Staff is very friendly. I would definitely recommend to others.

They honored the reservation which was important because I was with my handicapped mother.
The young lady, Alex, who waited on us was very sweet and efficient. She let us pace our meal and didn't rush us.

The food was delicious!

I would recommend this restaurant highly!

Lovely. However, wish it had gluten free and vegan options on the menu or as specials. Really only need one or two. They happily made a vegan entree for us but it would be nice to have it available and not a special order. Great place

Reserved for 4 people for Saturday night. Received a call from the restaurant saying they didn't understand why "the system" allowed the reservation since they were closing on Saturday for Memorial Day. This didn't make any sense to me and left me scrambling to get a reservation on Thursday. (have eaten here once before, so I was required today to fill out review as if I had been there recently.)

My party had4 different pasta dishes and they were all delicious! We went in the early evening when the dinning room was empty which was nice to enjoy the quiet.

This was our 2nd time to Matta Donna. We took another family with us and we all were very happy with our meals! We started with a few different salads, to which we all enjoyed very much! Dinner was Frutti Di Mare, Eggplant Rollatini, Filet Mignon, Rib Eye Steak, Penne Vodka, Pizza and faffadelle with vodka sauce. Everyone really like their meals! Service was a little on the slow side, but nothing major.

Excellent: Spaghetti Bolognese
Fair to poor: Chicken Murphy. Little flavor, watery sauce. No even slightly spicy.
Poor: Appetizer of friend mozzarella were tiny squares.
Bread was ice cold.
Ordered bottle of wine. Put on table with no ice bucket.
Server was very friendly. Staff very warm. Provided friendly atmosphere.
Might give it two stars out of four.

I love this restaurant. It's a local place that's easy and comfortable, whether alone or with a large group. Food is great and staff is very welcoming and professional. Matta Donna has the best pork chop around! Hands down!

We met some friends for the first time at this restaurant, enjoyed the food, and atmosphere greatly. However the wait staff was young and new but efficient. When asked about food choices he was not knowledgeable.
