Food was overpriced and didn’t taste good. Kale salad came out wilted and yellow.
MATTEO’S is our favorite Italian restaurant on Maui. Matteo personally oversees the kitchen and the meals never disappoint. They have an extensive wine list featuring both Italian and American wines. They now offer half orders of their large salads, which allows us to try a couple salads without dinner. Service is very good. There is little turn over of wait staff. Highly recommend MATTEO’S. You do need reservations
Food was very good.
Food is always great!! The service has always been 5 star, knowledgeable, warm and when you are a repeat customer especially warm!! We dine here routinely. The only issue is noise. The outdoor patio is more quiet. Inside seating is very noisy except in bar. We will continue to return routinely!! Last visit the risotto was delicious!
Great dinner seated in the outdoor terrace. Delicious food, fantastic service in a peaceful space! We ate here twice while visiting Maui for six nights, can’t beat this amazing Italian food, a nice change from typical Hawaiian fare.
It was just okay. I didn't care for the chick pea spread to be served with the bread..... I was expecting olive oil since it's Italian restaurant. I didn't care for my butternut squash ravioli. I thought the squash flavor reminded me of baby food and the ravioli was drenched in just melted butter. My husband said his fish was just okay.
We had a reservation and showed up on time. However, we were kept waiting for 15 minutes before being seated. We sat at our table for 10 minutes before a waiter appeared and acknowledged us. It took a full 15 minutes before he came back to take our order, another 15 minutes for salads to appear, and a full 35 minutes after that before our dinners appeared. That’s right, we were served dinner 1 hour and 15 minutes after we were seated and 1 hour and 30 minutes after our reservation time. No apologies were offered during any of this time. All that being said, the food was very good but we will never go back here or recommend this place to our friends. An apology or an explanation of why it took so long to get dinner would have gone a long way but.....
Felt rushed by waitress
Everyone kept apologizing about making us wait - but we really didn’t wait
In and out in under one hour with an overpriced glass of wine
And a bland bolongnese
Spend your money at Monkeypod kitchen
Also Expensive but worth it ...
Or drive to Kihei ...
It was nice. But I didn’t get any points for my visit....
Authentically prepared food, excellent wine pairings, no food hangover, just like mama makes!
Slow to get service when we arrived. Server was chatting with a customer on the deck. After 25 minutes of waiting she finally showed up. After that service was very good. Made up with a complimentary dessert.
MATTEO’S is the total package with great food & wine, great atmosphere, & the best service. We always ask for Michael as our server because he makes every experience memorable & fun!! It has never disappointed & we hope it will be our fav Maui restaurant forever.
The Arancini was cold . The pasta water was not salted. Way to much cheese on the lasagna . The tiramisu in a mason jar was not good , all filling .
Great food, service quick but there’s a but....our server, nice guy but when explaining the fish of the day, he proceeded to tell us it wasn’t a fishy fish which is why he liked it. That was fair enough, we then ordered for entree - the seafood pasta which he then told us was his favourite dish. Errrr whatttt, myself and my wife thought! You just told us you didn’t like fishy fish!! It made us laugh, but also made us think he was just full of s*it. Nice restaurant but to the server - just be honest!
The food was good but overpriced. But if you are used to paying $15 for a beer then you probably wouldn’t think twice about the prices. Service was good.
The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was outstanding, l would definitely go back.
Was the best Italian food I have ever had. And the wine recommendation was perfect. Our 3rd time there. We will definitely be back whenever we visit Maui.
Loved it...No a single complaint. Glutenfree options are fantastic.
Always GREAT food, excellent service, and seated on time. Could not ask for more...
Amazing food without standing service! Meatballs, caprese salad, pasta dishes, lasagna and fish special were all outstanding. Service was even better...made for a very special evening. Loved the outside seating.
It was a beautiful evening filled with homemade Italian flavors and delicious wines.
This is our favorite special place to eat when we are on Maui! Staff makes us feel special and food is delicious. Love the atmosphere and the delicious Italian selections and such an awesome selection of wine.
Wonderful as always
Year after year, meal after meal, Matteo's remains our favorite restaurant in Maui. And we are not easily
pleased. One of those "hidden" gems that you want to be wildly successful, but your afraid to tell too many people about. Belisimo!
Great wine steward.
Seems like they need more help
Service on the slow side
Everyone however was friendly and the food was excellent
As for the noise level, we were the ones who were "energetic" 😂
Russell was amazing!
Extremely disappointed. Had booked for my husband's birthday. Had just flown in from mainland and was extremely tired. Our party of three was given a super small table intended for two. Appetizers flew out and busy boys were hovering over us grabbing our dishes before we had finished. Our table was right behind a wedding party. It was chaotic and exhausting. We were literally there 35 minutes and decided to pass on the main dinner after being rushed through our starters. When we saw the line out the door we realized we were being rushed through service to accommodate another party. No birthday greetings for my husband's 60th birthday when we left. We have recommended this restaurant to friends dozens of times. We won't be back.
No amazing/ocean views but food was delicious!!! We got the lasagna and butternut squash ravioli and both were great! Meatballs as the app were a good choice too!
We always eat at Matteo's when on Maui and did not disappoint. I tried the squash ravioli after sharing a beet salad. My partner had the lamb ragu, our friend the lasagna. All was delicious. The service was excellent, do not remember our waiter's name but he was very attentive and friendly.
Great gluten free options.
We decided to try the 3 course menu options..appetizer, entree and dessert. EVERYTHING was so delicious. I had the grilled peach with prosciutto, Lasagna and Profiteroles. My husband opted for the Calamari appetizer, Braised short ribs and Peaches with ice cream. We love good food and have been to many restaurants on Maui. We have also decided not to return to quite a few. Matteo's was outstanding. This was our second time at Matteo's and we will definitely be back. BIG THUMBS UP.
The food was fantastic, the service (especially drinks) was very slow on a Friday night.
Ambience was beautiful and very relaxing and the service was quick and friendly and the food was absolutely delicious! I would highly recommend the gnocchi and lasagna. Both came out piping hot and done to perfection! Very friendly staff.
Great food. Lots of gluten free options (Saltimbocca was delicious; tasty sauce). Service was excellent. Our server seemed to be helping every table yet she was calm, pleasant and friendly, and we didn’t feel like we were being ignored.
Brooklyn was wonderful. Never a bad meal at Matteo’s!
Service with Michael is the best! Food is always great and staff is helpful and friendly
