What an absolutely awesome meal! You MUST have the Chicken Ultimo (add pasta) and the Meatball & Eggplant - absolutely delicious.
Our waiter Eddie was great - if you're dining here, which I would recommend, you have to ask for him; he knows the menu, is attentive, and will customize options for you if you're looking for something "not quite" on the menu, or maybe a combo of two menu items.

Great find in north Miami Beach area. Most pasta dishes are under $20 and the four we ordered were all very good. House red a good deal at $8. Cocktails ranged from $12 to $16 and were just okay. Service elevates everything starting with a pleasant hostess to stellar waiter (Sergio). Brownie desert is stellar!

Everything was wonderful except our waiter who paid more attention to what was going on at other tables, even when he was standing at ours putting wine or taking our orders. Definitely a spot for locals and we obviously weren't. Portion sizes were huge.

We have been to Matteo's several times and have had a good meal each time. The waiter was efficient and took our order shortly after we were seated and served our beverages and bread. The food was plentiful and tasty. The portions were quite large even though we ordered the half portions. There was enough food left over for another meal at home! Our party of four all enjoyed our meals at Matteo's and will be back again for dinner.

Matteo’s is in a strip mall which would make you lower your expectations...DON’T!! It is awesome!!! Authentic Italian food, very generous portions....too big, so they offer half portions which are still generous. We love to order to share stuff there and bring home leftovers. Their Eggplant Rollatini is deelish!!! Their tomato sauce is the best!!
The Bucatini Amatriciana is superb!! Al debate to perfection with a silky roasted tomatoes...yummmm!
And can’t leave out their Rigatoni Milanese....OMG!!! Sooooo good!!! Best I’ve ever had!!!
Great starter: Stuffed Artichoke!! Like Nona’s!! ;)
And most important...full bar, great wine list and THE BEST SERVER/BARTENDER....”Yael” -She is fun & knows that menu like the back of her hand!! Love her!!

I've had better dinners and better service at Matteo's. Our pork chops were rather ordinary and the "sauce it comes with" was actaully a solid side dish, yet we were told to order a side dish because the chop was on its own. Three diners ordered the broccoli but one order would have been enough for the three. The waiter neglected to mention all of the above. Maybe they care about the size of the bill more than the satisfaction of their clients. We ordered two wine bottles during our dinner, which are charged at 300% over cost, and they made sure to add their 18% tip on top of it automatically. I don't think they will see me too often.

This is as close as you can come to little Italy. I wish the menu was bigger, but the quality is superb.
