We ate outdoors and were grateful to be able to specify the preference for outdoor seating when making our reservation. We felt that the tables were just a bit more crowded than we would have liked given our concern over COVID, but overall we felt OK with it given the fresh air. Food was very good. I especially liked the pappardelle I ordered, which had a meaty lamb sauce and fresh-made pasta. One disappointment was the wine list, which had very few low- and mid-range options. We ended up spending a lot of money on wine, and we didn't feel we got great bang for the buck. Of course we understand getting Italian wine to Hawaii is probably not cheap, but we wished for more options in a reasonable price range. Our kids caught sight of our bill and couldn't believe how much we spent.

Matteo's has been our favorite restaurant for years and we have really missed it during the pandemic shutdown. We dined a few days after they reopened and they haven't missed a beat! Food is just as great and service was excellent. We did miss the spread that is served with the focaccia but we were offered some butter.

The restaurant is just starting up again and we are thrilled to be back. We would love to have air conditioning indoors. Don't know if it wasn't working or just not turned on, but it was quite warm inside. See you again soon.

Date night.. Always a favorite of Jim and I!! Love to sit at the beautiful bar with the friendly and entertaining crew !! Tonights meals were completely over-the-top ridiculous. It was definitely art in the form of food. Exquisite and delicious!! One if the best restaurants on Maui! They are doing everything they’re supposed to do to honor the new Covid rules, That made me happy. I’m pretty sure we’ve been here over 100 times and hopefully many many more!

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!

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.
