I have ordered medium-rare lamb chops special for$49. My friend ordered the same but medium. When food arrived, I had well done lamb chops with not even hint of pink anywhere. The waiter send these back to the kitchen and I heard a lot of commotion coming from there. About 3 mins later I got new lamb chops that were totally raw inside. I voiced my concerns to waiter that possibly there is a problem with my order and that I am afraid to eat whatever else might come out from this kitchen. The waiter assured me to not to worry, had cut all lamb chops in half right at the table and personally went to the kitchen to cook it himself. Meanwhile my wife and my friend were almost done with their food. My friend gave me some of his lamb chops to eat. A few minutes later the waiter brought finally perfectly cooked medium rare lamb chops.
This was my experience. You can't make it up

Food was overpriced and not fresh at all- you could tell my veggies were from a frozen bag. The service was also very horrible. I’ve never experienced service like that ever. Extremely disappointed. Do not waste you’re time or money here.

We were so disappointed by the service, though we don't want the blame to be solely on our waiter. We got caught in traffic and were so very grateful they could still seat us even though we were 45 minutes late. We placed our order and received our wine and appetizer. We then waited 95 minutes for our dinner. Tables seated after us had their meal and finished before we got our dinner. We overheard several waiters complaining about what a complete mess the night was. They seated walk-ins, continued to do carry-out, and other diners were having the same problem as we did. No one was happy with the service. The food, however, was absolutely delicious as always which was a happy consolation to the other shortcomings of the evening.

We went for a dual birthday celebration and booked on Open Table because we were out of state and didn’t know the area. Unfortunately it was also the Saturday night of Valentines Day, and it was very, very busy.
Customers were forced to wait in a busy drive lane in front, and it never seemed like the host knew who was to be seated next. We had an 8:30p resv and arrived 15 mins early. We weren’t seated until 9:15p.
Live music, good food, and an excellent server fully made up for the confusion trying to get inside. Would highly recommend, and look forward to going again.

It was a busy night, for sure. So, servers were friendly, but they probably needed a few more which would raise our service score. It's a nice place with good food at a fair price. We'd definitely go back again if we visit this neck of the woods again.

We had been here before a few years ago while we were in town visiting family and were impressed with the food.
We returned this weekend and were even more impressed.
Great food, outstanding service and great atmosphere. Live music was a great added touch especially in the pandemic when you don’t have the opportunity to go to concerts any more.
Highly recommend.

What to say about Matteo’s. Here we are 4 New York Italians looking for a taste of the country of romance, the country of wine and perhaps the best food. We’ve experienced it in New York and we were weary of what we would find in the sunshine state...but lo and behold, Hallandale delivered, matteos delivered, Italy delivered. Superb service, sucling food and an atmosphere that brightens every sense. Thank you matteos, see you soon. Love, us.

Been going to Matteo's for over 15 years and they always provide a consistently good Italian meal with fresh ingredients and warm friendly service. We had the Veal Luciano, Baked Clams, House Salad, and Italian Cheesecake. Everything was delicious. Two things I'd watch out for: 1) they give you a choice of a single and family size dish, the single is fine but the family size is not enough for even 2 people, better to order 2 single size dishes; 2) the pricing is beginning to edge up and while you used to be able to eat well for $50pp, it's now more like $70pp.

From the way that your are greeted at the door (Hi Eddie!) to the time you leave, you are made to feel welcome and appreciated.
Everything that we’ve ever ordered here has been above and beyond expected. The staff is attentive and accommodating. Whether you are looking to splurge calorie-wise or trying to restrain yourself, there is something for everyone. The Caesar salad (light dressing) and the shrimp Wendy are two great healthy choices. The clams oreganato and veal chop parm are even better. :-)
Great cocktails and desserts, too.
