if you want to make a reservation for 8.15pm and wait to be seated at 9pm, this is your place. Add to this, rude waiters and you are set for the night.

The food was okay.

Our reservation was for 8.00pm and we started eating at 9.45 . We were a table of 8 and just left to hang around on the pavement for 45 minutes. They had obviously overbooked and there were people everywhere. No social distancing in place and no thought of where to look after people that were left waiting . The only reason we didn’t leave is it was our last night in the USA with our friends .
The hostess was completely out of control of the situation and you could clearly see her lack of experience and people skills .
The waiter , when we were finally seated , was very good , attentive and efficient , although the drinks had to be sent back twice due to the drinks coming out wrong .
The starters were good but unfortunately 6 of the 8 meals were not good .
All in all a terrible experience.

Waited too long for drinks, then mine was wrong . Had to wait again. Two different people tried to take our order. Two chipped salad came first and the other two appetizers did not for about 10 more minutes. Also the chopped salads had no dressing, what should guests do dress it themselves? Next, one persons entree came by itself! Then I guess a manager saw and asked what else we were waiting for , he was angry, then in about another 5 minutes the others food came. Then, plates cleared, never asked if we wanted another drink throughout the dinner, or desserts etc....
we heard it was so nice there but the kitchen was way off I guess.
Also, we were seated on the slower side of the restaurant outdoors, not the best table and loud traffic on that side.

It rained while we were sitting outside. Staff was not helpful getting us a covered table. Waiter did not tell us we were ordering too much. We asked as we were ordering and he said it was fine. Our wine and drinks and appetizers got rained on and there was no mention of anything to replace it. Table inside was too small for the 6 of us. Plus too much food and it couldnt fit on table. Things were rushed and not a very pleasant experience

We love Matteo’s but unfortunately on this visit we had very poor service. Restaurant was not overly busy and our server just had a few tables so don’t know what happened. We’ll definitely go back and will mention this to the manager when we’re seated so we don’t have a similar problem.

As always the food was outstanding. Social distancing and cleanliness was perfect. My only negative is that the service is very rushed. I am a slow eater and the plates are picked up before I finish dining.

It was my father’s birthday and we went to celebrate. The server rushed us (we had a 9:15 reservation so perhaps he was tired close to the end of his shift). Nevertheless, he was attentive. Three of us order the orecchiette with broccoli rabe, it was very bland and watery. The Bronzino was delicious though as was the zucchini Friti!

I would have liked to have known there were small and large plates. We had too much food and were given large plates. Out side of that we loved your place.

We truly appreciated the level of safety re COVID this restaurant observes
To start with our table that we reserved on line was honored. This was for outside seating
The tables were safely distanced and the wait staff respectful
The food was absolutely delicious.
We brought our grandchildren for a nite out with us.
Everyone enjoyed what they ordered from salad to dessert
I had snapper livornese . That rated among the best ever.
The music on patio added to our perfect nite out.

As always, food and service were a “10”, even on Christmas Eve with the additional craziness and larger-than-usual parties. We were all pretty amazed at how fast everything came out and how attentive the waitstaff and support staff were- water, bread, bussing, everything was perfect.

The night started out well, then when they sat a large party in the back of the room our waiter completely ignored us. It was my husbands birthday and we were looking forward to a nice dinner with our children. We had to ask different servers for things because our waiter was No where to be found. We poured our own wine and served our own family style dinner, there was no checking up to see how we were doing. We didn’t even want to order dessert at that point. Service was reflected in our tip, he will know exactly why the tip wasn’t to par.
