Ordered our artichoke. Waitstaff confirmed. After 45 mins of waiting, entrees came out sans artichoke (which is why we visit Matteo’s for in the first place). No apologies, just poor service (outside). But, we’ll be back since Joy Cooper told us to dine there. And that we’ve been loyal customers for 15+ years.

Delicious Italian choices. Some traditional and some quite unique. We enjoyed the energy of the waiter and the live music which was not too loud for our conversations.
Lovely evening for my wife and my family.

Great food, generous portions but best part was definitely the service. We had Guy as our waiter, he was so friendly and accommodating and had great recommendations. This was our first time going and we would definitely go back if in the area

We were on vacation and looking for a good Italian restaurant. There were a few mixed reviews, but we decided to trust the good reviews. This was one of the best Italian meals we have ever had in our life. We eat out often. I highly recommend Matteo’s. We will certainly be back if we are ever back in the area.

Simply outstanding! We stumbled on this amazing gem on a busy night looking for somewhere to eat a day before the Orange Bowl. Close to the beach hotels (a little walk, but not bad), this was a fantastic experience. The staff hustled on a busy night and everything was made fresh. The food was simply delicious in every way. We all had different things, so I can’t really speak to one. If you want a quick meal though, this is not for you as it’s an experience similar to European where meals are to be enjoyed and not hurried. We will be back again when we are in the area!!

Our waiter had several heated conversations with the lead (I presume) waiter and after each meeting he sulked and loafed around. It was quite distracting and unfortunate as the food was very good and the family style meal was generous. The venue is very large offering both inside and outside dining and there is music several night/week although it is quite noisy so the music became part of the background noise.

We would return as all of the other servers were really hustling and the wait after ordering was normal for a busy restaurant at a busy time (7:30 pm).

It was our first time here for my mom and I. The staff was so friendly and nice, especially our server, Daniel. The food was great! I reached out to the manager, Eddie, to tell him how happy we were there and how their staff really went out of their way to please their guests. Their singer was wonderful, too and we told her so. Overall it was a great experience starting with the valet guy and we will be back! 🙏

The food came out very slow
When it finally came out dish was missing shrimp
The waiter said he had to call the Mgr over and he came over slowly. They brought our TWO shrimp in a sauce about 7 minutes later when he finished his pasta dish! Really awful way to handle the situation! I guess they don’t care as it seems to always be crowded . The mightier have fallen!

Out server was great/ Guy ! His delivery was timely and we enjoyed all the menu items we selected- chicken with lemon , lamb chops and the mixed salad was superb. Of course we had the Napoleon and Tartufo for dessert. It was an outstanding dining experience. Looking forward to another visit in 2022 🦋

Why cant the service be better, more attentive? Are there too few waitstaff? When you dont see your waiter for 45 minutes something is amiss. Does manager not understand that service should be something that makes the meal more enjoyable. Food is outstanding. I hope they fix this because it’s fixable.

Terrible experience! Made a reservation but the overbooked with parties. Sat my party outside by stinking dumpster. Asked to be moved and they put us in a hallway by the DJ and service crew locker. Doors slamming, loud music and people bumping into us and our table all night. Bill was crazy high and food was average at best. Waiter was attentive but greeter was antagonistic and not very concerned about the reservation… Very disappointing,
