We visit Maui from Seattle at least once a year and we always spend a family meal at Matteo’s. The food is amazing and the service is always stellar. My family is half vegetarian and there are excellent non-meat choices and they are just as tasty as the meat dishes. My daughter had the gnocchi and my son always has the pizza. This trip I had the cioppino and it was amazing. The fish was fresh and tender and the broth was bright and flavorful. As always, it was an excellent meal.

supposed Italian restaurant with loud contemporary pop rock music really brought our experience down. Bright lighting did not help set the mood at all. Our food was quite good and our server very nice. But ridiculously expensive! $24 for a glass of Cabernet?? You’ve got to be kidding me.

My family dined last week at Matteos and had an incredible experience. Justin and the entire wait staff were attentive and helpful. Our glasses were never empty and the food was cooked perfectly to order. My mom has allergy (GF/DF) restrictions and these were accommodated perfectly. We hope to visit again soon.

Poor service, but good food. Waitress was inattentive, forgetful and somewhat rude. Other servers who brought our food out were kind, though, thinking this one long haired blonde waitress was just a bad representative for the establishment.

I love trying new restaurants, and checking out different cuisines. Especially Italian, as it’s my fave. Matteo’s was a very good experience. The wait staff is top notch! They made my stay very warm and welcome! Also safe, as they are adhering to CDC protocols. I had the Bolognese. It was very good. My Sweetheart had the lasagna. We both agreed his dish was the best. I was too full to try a dessert! Maybe next time!

I suppose restaurants try to make up for restricted seating with table turn but we felt we were rushed by our server and meal pacing. The food as in the past was good, albeit rich and excessive portion sized.

The food was amazing. Very fresh and delicious. The kids cheese pizza should be an appetizer it was that good we all wanted some. The fresh fish special with risotto was to die for. Thanks for having us we will be back.

We enjoyed our experience. Get your reservation in early as we waited and were only able to get seats at the bar (which is totally on us, not Matteos). The bruschetta al tonno was a good portion for 2 and delicious as a starter. Skipped the salad section and went straight into the pastas. We ordered two dishes with the plans to share so decided on the lasagna and gnocchi crema rosa. The lasagna was fantastic and gnocchi was decent. It was recommended that we add sausage to the gnocchi and we should have heeded that advice to give it a bit more flavor. Overall, great food and cool atmosphere. Would go again!

Very rushed by wait staff. Felt as if they wanted us to eat fast to get the table open. Table of 4 behind us was very, very loud. East Coast and rude. Will be back in November for what we hope is a better experience

We had a reservation and were sat right away. Our waiter was busy finishing up with some other tables so we had to wait a while. The bread and oil was yummy. Bf had lasagna and I had the butternut squash ravioli. Both were good/okay but we weren’t blown away. The red wine options were extremely expensive.

We were disappointed in the experience. Service was unfriendly. Basically greeted us, took us to the table , showed us the QR code and ran away. We felt very rushed. The staff seemed frazzled and it wasn’t even that busy. We barely had gotten our appetizer and they were bringing entrees . The food was good, but the town is filled with fabulous dining choices. I want the whole experience. Did not have that here. Won’t return.

Fantastic Italian food, best we’ve had on the island. Service was also excellent, a bit noisy but it was a Friday night and a fair amount of kids. Overall, an excellent spot to eat in Wailea!
