Great food, been here many times. Noise level this time was off the charts. We asked to be seated outside but were told it was too late (8:45pm reservation). I understand, no biggie, but I really couldn’t hear my son talking next to me. Maybe turn down the background music so people don’t have to try and talk over it? Thanks!

Went for a family meal while in Maui- our server was excellent, very attentive. The food was very good and the wine selection was nice. We sat in the outdoor patio area and it was a nice space for a group. Would definitely visit again!

Had a very enjoyable dinner. From the hostess to the table, everyone was very friendly. Our waiter explained and suggested various options and made us feel very welcome.

Noise level was high. The restaurant was full and many large tables which made it feel even louder. This did not disappoint us but if looking for a quiet night, this may be challenging.

Would go back for sure!!

Food and service was 4 stars. Portion sizes were a little bit than average but perfect for us because we're light eaters. I like that their pasta noodles are made in house, perfect textured. I had the black pasta seafood.

An excellent addition to the Maui dining scene. Especially the friendly, efficient service by everyone. Well done! From a big Happy Birthday to hugs to getting my food delivered fast, they all did great. And a fantastic wine list; varied, lots of top-rated Italian, many interesting & well-chosen wines. I went twice in 3 days so you know I loved it.

We often eat at Matteo's and take our off-island visitors there. The food is delicious and the staff attentive and friendly. We recommend eating outside on the terrace, as the inside tables are very noisy. It's our favorite Maui restaurant.

Family dinner with 8 persons, including two 7 year olds. Food was excellent, but because the room was busy, service was variable. Regardless, we enjoyed the meal, and would go back another time. Four of us had the signature lasagna, and enjoyed it. My only negative comment is that the wine by the glass prices are silly. For example, a 6ounce glass of Zenato Ripassa was priced higher than the retail price for a 750 ml bottle. That is foolish thinking by management.

On vacation in Wailea and were craving our Wednesday night pasta night. Matteo’s hit the mark. I had the Gnocchi and substituted brocollini for zucchini. It was fantastic. My husband had lasagna. It was served steaming hot in a crock which was different but delicious. Waitstaff was very attentive too.

Lasagna was very greasy and noodles were mushy. Lamb Parpadelle was lacking flavor. Our entrees took a very long time to come out. Restaurant was extremely loud, overwhelmingly so. The price was not worth it at all.

Matteo’s is a lovely, smaller restaurant in Wailea. Featuring Italian specialties, wines and pastas, which are homemade.
I chose the tomato, burratta salad which was delicious!
My enter was lobster ravioli, which was just so so.
I thought the ravioli were tough, not at all what I had expected.
For the appetizer we chose the rice ball stuffed with ground lamb. Which was one of their specials . It was delicious!
My husband’s lasagne he said was fantastic as was my son in laws seared tuna looked delicious as well as the paperadelle. Overall , our dinner was lovely, our server was excellent as well!

Great food and great value
The only downside there is no sunset vet
They cover this up however by providing a nice atmosphere with outdoor plants etc

Despite some negative reviews, we decided to give Matteo's a try. Unfortunately it was overall disappointment from the ambience (noise) to (most of) the food to the service and the price. My wife and I were seated inside which is incredibly loud making it almost impossible to have a casual conversation. Our server asked if we would like him to review the menu. I said yes thinking I would hear about the specials but he told us what we could already read on the menu as though we either couldn't read or had never eaten in an Italian restaurant before. We ordered cocktails (negronis) which were good. We had the meatball appetizer which was unremarkable and bland. My wife asked for gluten free bread but they charged us $5 without telling us it would be an extra expense. For dinner we had the house salad, lasagna, and squash ravioli. The salad was fine but not exceptional given the price. The lasagna was bland, overcooked, and the meat was dry. The squash ravioli was very good. Our wine was the highlight at $20 a glass and worth the cost -- however our server was no help in the selection. We ordered flourless cake and kula strawberries in balsamic vinegar with green tea gelato -- it was lovely. My wife ordered the flourless chocolate cake -- which she thought was good but too much. Overall, just ok, but overpriced for just okay. I would definitely recommend dining outside -- the noise level seemed much less.
