We enjoyed a delicious meal at Matteo's Osteria on our last night in Maui. We had patio seating, which was less noisy than inside, and very comfortable, though no ocean views at this eatery. Our server, Brooklyn, was friendly but not overbearing. Made great suggestions. We split a caprese salad (wonderful!) Husband had the lasagna and I had the Pappardelle with lamb. We were not disappointed!!!! We finished off our St. Patrick's Day meal with Irish Coffee. After 11 nights of lovely fresh Hawaiian fish and fruits, this was a nice change and prepared us to return to our stateside routines. We will definitely recommend Matteo's to our friends who travel to Maui.

Food is delicious but pasta portions are very small. Everyone in my party was still hungry after our main course.

We eat inside where it was EXTREMELY NOISEY. Outside may have been less noisey. The calamari was excellent and the main meals that we had were very good but, ... the portions were skimpy. If it hadn’t been so noisey we may have enjoyed our meal and given a higher overall rating.

Very good place great service and great food. We are somewhat boring people so we ordered lasagna but it was absolutely to die for the best lasagna I think I've ever had. Especially of your cheese lover. Everything else was top notch as well including the service.

Noticed this Osteria when visiting another business near their location. They are well off the beaten path. We then researched them on the net and liked what we saw.

Overall experience was quite pleasing, we will be returning on our next Maui trip (July 2019).

This is good classic Italian food. The outdoor seating is much better than the indoor. The focaccia bread is fresh. They traditionally serve with hummus. I asked for olive oil which goes much better. We tried a number of dishes. The favorite was the Fettuccine Frute di Mare.

Was very disappointed. Matteo’s had been recommended to us and we were very much looking forward to our dinner. Initially, there was some confusion about our reservation. We were seated outside on deck. That was fine. However the waitress, Brooklyn, was not out there much at all. It seemed she had only 2 tables out there at the time. Food was served to us, she did not come to see if we enjoyed it. Showed up at end to aske if we wanted dessert and then again with bill.

Food was adequate, nothing special for the price.....will not revisit nor recommend to friends.

I would give a higher ranking if the noise level wasn't so high. Was indoors this time and have tried several locations inside - doesn't seem to make much difference. Of course it's worse when they are full and there are large tables celebrating special events. Outside is somewhat better.

The food wasn't as described while it was tasty I expected something else. Waitress seemed disgusted we didn't all order appetizers and salads before dinner. They put 4 of us by a loud large group and there was another quieter table open. Might not go back.
