The worst dining experience we've ever had. It begins and ends with a waiter high on hallucinogens (he admitted it to me) to a management that did not provide any accommodation on the total of the final bill. The evening was lacking in staff decorum and the food was mediocre. Matteo's should never be recommended to anyone.

Sorry to say that I was not happy ! My dates fish came out like a piece of rubber . My pork chop was tasty and well cooked but obviously waiting for her entree to come out my pork chop got cold . At no time did they take the pork chop and kept it under the warmer while they cooked a new entree. That being said they changed the music program (which was very good ) because of reasons which makes no sense ! I noted on my reservation that it was a birthday dinner but I guess they did not see the open table reservation! So no candles!!!!!

The place was small but it was great and it felt warm and authentic. Food was delicious and must have the home made tiramisu.

Pear martini with shrimp cocktail to start, delicious! Rigatoni Bolognese for my meal. My friend had Nonna’s Ragu with spaghetti for the pasta. She didn’t want the sausage so I enjoyed it with my rigatoni… drool!!! We had the smaller portions and even they were PLENTY! Finished dinner with a chocolate martini for a liquid dessert, so good. There was a female singer during the meal and she sang lovely a wide variety of songs.

We made a reservation with OpenTable, the place didn't honor it. When I asked the manager, Gianluca, in a normal voice, if we had the table or not (as we made a proper reservation and we were kept there waiting and waiting), he acted in a extremely rude way and talked to me disrespectfully. It was clear they didn't have the table we promptly reserved. We ended up eating outside as we were tired to look for a new place to eat. Good things : food was ok, the waiter was great and the front lady was very nice . We won't be coming back due to the manager unprofessional attitude and also we won't be using OpenTable again as it is worthless

Honestly, when I see restaurants that have high reviews, I don't think to much of it. Most of the time I do not see how they got the rating. I imagine a 5 star restaurant being absolutely perfect service and the most delicious food I've ever had. Well, this place is both of those. A well deserved 5 star rating. 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟 Best Italian food I've ever had to be honest!

As usual, everything was perfect. For once, it wasn’t very busy and the food came out quite quickly. Sergio was a pleasure to talk to and he took care of us all. The chicken caprese was amazingly good, the linguine ink were yummy, however the chicken ultimately was a bit too spicy. The sweets were amazing and the music was food for the soul. We’ll definitely go back soon! Thank you for a wonderful dinner!

I come to this neighborhood restaurant often and the food is very good. The ambience is lovely, and the service is good. There is music Wednesday through Saturday I believe. A very good singer piano player and another singer on a different night. Very enjoyable.

I have not been back in awhile and I must say that it was delicious. Really brought me back to one of my favorite Italian restaurant in NYC. The veal chop with cherry peppers was incredible! The linguine with clams was also very good . The broccoli rabe was ok nothing special but OMG that veal Chop a must order . Great looking place with very attentive service . Will be back very soon !!!!

We are here on vacation. The food was decent. Fish and clams were good. The chicken Marsala was not great. The portion size was nice and easily shareable. The service was very kind but slow. Not the best value. We would try it again to see if it was an off night.
