Excellent food as usual. Our waiter seemed a bit upset that we did not order the larger family size portions, but was otherwise helpful and attentive. Enjoyable family restaurant, reasonably priced for the quality of the food served.

Michael was our server and he was wonderful. I Had chicken ultima, others at the table had eggplant parm, shrimp, and veal Marsala Chopped salad and Cesar salad are great. Love this family style authentic Italian restaurant. Chef Brad really has been great, he’s so talented!

We were expecting to have a lovely dinner to celebrate mom’s birthday with friends. Service was slow and food quality poor on 3 out of 6 entrees. One was so bad it was removed from table and taken off bill. I understand there’s a new chef, but no excuse for this experience... especially at the price. Will not be going back.

All & all, I have had good experiences at Matteo's. Unfortunately, we waited an hr for our dinner as there was a Graduation Party beside us. We finally just asked for a check & the Manager brought out our food but cold. 4 of us ate the cold food & one sent it back to be heated.

Very disappointed. Prices go up and quality goes down. The Chicken Matteo was overcooked and dry. I needed a steak knife to cut the broccoli. My son was brought a tiramisu with a candle for his birthday and it was put on my bill and I had to complain to get it reversed. No longer one of my favorite restaurants.

Normally a great meal, this visit left a lot of questions if I’d ever go back. I get it most restaurants will have an off night but this experience was one that would have had Gordon Ramsay say “shut the whole f*ck’n place down.”

Delicious food. Generous family-sized portions. Matteo's is always busy... for good reason! I've sampled almost everything on the menu and my faves are : Caesar (garlicky dressing is OUTSTANDING) and their meatballs and sausage pasta dish. Enjoy!

Matteo's is always dependable for consistent quality and large portions. Waiters are professionally outfitted and tables are covered with white tablecloths. The dining and bar areas are usually quite active so sometimes noise level is distracting but tolerable. Most of the dishes are tasty and well prepared.
We keep coming back because it's so good
The only problem is with some chicken dishes. Parmigiana is always tough (they claim it's pounded but is the least tender chicken of any Italian restaurant I encountered over 60 years) and roasted is always dry (maybe the chef could learn from Houston's on how to prepare roast chicken).

Waiter was sarcastic, which didn’t go over well with my elderly parents. In addition, it was my dad’s birthday and we mentioned it to the waiter but there was no attempt to recognize the special occasion at dessert time. Won’t go back.

As always, really good food, dependable service and a fun atmosphere. Great place for a really casual, low stress, fairly priced dinner. They make over sized drinks and family sized portions meant to share.

Usually the restaurant is noisy inside so we ate on the veranda;although it faces the parking lot it was lovely. The service was excellent, and the food was good and plentiful. The restaurant service large and strong cocktails so our cocktail hour was delightful. We usually have a good time at this restaurant although it's always better when it's less crowded since it gets very noisy in the interior of the restaurant.
the food is meant to be shared since it is abundant!

Too Many people marched around our table getting to the room in the back...it was very
disturbing and there should be a better way to escort these people to their tables.

We had wonderful service at Matteo’s. The food is good if a little overpriced. But portions are large so you can get another meal out of your order usually. The only thing I don’t like is that main courses aren’t served with sides. Everything is a la carte and there is no side order of pasta. Also most restaurants when you say it’s a Birthday will not charge you for a dessert with a candle. They did charge but sang a nice Happy Birthday song! The food is good enough to make a return visit.

I haven’t been to Matteo’s in awhile and was quite disappointed with our meal. The only well made item was the Barratta Mozzarella appetizer. My sausage and pasta was not very flavorful or interestingly prepared. My husbands entre was loaded with potatoes which was not described on the menu. I will not be returning since the kitchen preparation isn’t what it use to be!

The entree was very good and was my dinner AND lunch for the next day. However my calamari appetizer (including the sauce) had ZERO flavor. The saving grace to my family dinner was how above and beyond our waitress services us. I used to be in the dining industry and she is the reason I still have hope for restaurants with such poor food.
