Matteo's of Boca Raton Ratings and Reviews
One of the best Italian restaurants in the area. Second visit this week and we were very satisfied with food and service. Salads are always good - chopped or Caesar. Shrimp oreganata was excellent. Pasta with meatballs and sausage was delicious. Just the right amount of tomato sauce. Chicken sorrentino was another good pick. Napoleon for dessert was good. Cannoli was delish but a little small.
As usual Matteo's was delicious but I really dislike feeling like cattle...There really is no ambiance and the food comes out rushed at you, which we did request but they were late bringing it....They were told that we had a show to catch and the kitchen was probably too busy.
Asked waiter for pasta with butter side dish for granddaughter (12 yrs.) and said they do it only for 3 year olds. Wanted to charge $19. For this. Pasta bolognese came out small with very little bolognese. Chicken Matteo was also tiny with big price. Asked for all white meat but said they wouldn't do that. Doesn't pay to order half size portions because they are only a small serving and not much less money than full Used to love this restaurant. Very expensive..
The restaurant has been completely redone since we were last to Matteo's. It needed some sprucing up, and they did a god job. It is bright, clean, spacious and very pleasant.
As always the food is delicious....just about all the food. Can't think of a criticism. The
portions are huge ( even the 1/2 size portions). Especially good is their marinara sauce and eggplant par,. And of course any pasta is heavenly, especially the Alfredo.
The service at the restaurant was sub-par, we waited a good 30 minutes for someone to take our order and then appetizers and entrees came out at the same time. We placed a dessert and coffee order, they brought out the desserts and the bill but not the coffee...another waiter had to retake the coffee order, which by the time it had come out, dessert was finished. We went here to celebrate my daughters high school graduation and was extremely disappointed with the very loud environment (could hear the person sitting next to you) and the poor level of service provided. Food was excellent, but can not make up for the poor service, and extremely loud environment. I will not be back.
We were a table of six celebrating my nephews visit from Colorado. We waited 1 hr. to get our baked clams appetizer then another 45 minutes for our entrees. This was a Wednesday night and the restaurant was half empty. I told this to the manager and he blamed it on the waiter instead of an apology. They didn't even offer dessert or coffee to us. Won't go back.
If you go out to dinner with friends, seeking the opportunity to talk and relax, don't go here. The tables were jammed into one another and the noise was unbelievably deafening! I literally could not think straight and looked forward to the check. The food was good, but other places serve good food with about 1/4 of the noise. We couldn't wait to get out of there. They wont't be seeing me again.
We went to Matteo's for a family dinner. Our waiter was very helpful in helping us choose our food since the food is served family style. Even with his assistance, we had plenty to bring home! Everything was well prepared and tasty. Great place to go with a group so you can order more of a variety of menu items. We will return.
On a Wednesday evening we had reservations for 7:30 PM. We arrived at 7:30. The desk told us to wait there because we would be seated next. 45 minutes later we gave up and went to the bar - still not seated. Without a word, the manager/owner whisked by two minutes later and told the bartender to not charge us for our cocktails. A nice gesture, but a brief conversation as well would have been appreciated. Waiting for nearly another 25 minutes to see our waitress, etc............not classy at all, and classy is what we usually expect at Matteo's, so the evening clearly did not live up to expectations. This was all unusual I believe, at this restaurant.
Matteo's is our go to restaurant for special occasions. This visit was disappointing. The appetizer portions were small and lacking flavor. The main courses were very generous, however, they were out of stock on many of the menu items. We had to choose entrees we were not planning on ordering. Our waiter was rude and did not pay attention to our table. We left upset and I satisfied. We will not coming back here for a long time.
We had a disappointing experience. We are not regulars and I felt that our waiter was indifferent to us.
Though he helped with the ordering, when the double order of calamari arrived, where was he with the plates. Finally he did serve us, but it was hard to find him when we wanted another drink. The food was ordinary, but the biggest disappointment was the tasteless pasta, which was not even hot.
The cheesecake and tartufos were delish.
Eight people, 6 drinks, not an inexpensive meal. As I said, very disappointing.
As far as Italian goes, it definitely hits the spot. Clams, calamari, and chopped salad delicious. If you like meat balls, don't miss these! Service was very attentive, obviously they prepared for MLK holiday- good crowd for a Monday night! Wine list was very average, especially if you're leaning California.
