A little noisy, but great food. Wait staff was attentive but spread a little too thin.

My dinner was lukewarm, my husband’s chicken was full of gristle & our waitress chatted with another table for over 15 minutes while we waited for our check.

Nice place for a quiet business meeting or to meet up with friends.
Pork chop entrees always excellent!
Zach is a gracious host & his Mom’s deserts are terrific!

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.

Got right in, 6 friends and I. Food was amazing & they even gave us a round on the house after dinner. Food is a little pricey nothing crazy but so worth it! Will definitely be back.

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.

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.)
