Had a lovely evening dining at Matteos, glad they are back. Food was delicious and service was excellent. Miss the old wine list and by the glass selections. I hope they bring that back.

Wow! We made a reservation for the only time and table they had available (5pm and bar top). Was pleasantly surprised that when we arrived, we got seated at a regular dining table.

Our server (I’m so ashamed I did not get his name but I believe he was also the manager) was amazing! Very friendly, happy and helpful. The only thing better than him was our food!!!

We ordered the ahi bruschetta, Caesar salad to share, the seafood pasta and the short ribs. For beverages, I asked if they had anything with Lillikoi, he suggested the mojito- it was delicious! And the garnish (some special cherry) was fabulous!!

Would we return? YES! This was simply our best sit down restaurant meals on Maui!!!

Very nice evening at Matteos. Both the food and the service were very good. A bonus that it is an easy walk from Grand Wailea and a few of the other resorts nearby as rental cars in Maui these days are very scarce and very expensive. And with most resorts not having all of their restaurants open, off resort dining options are very much appreciated right now.

Rushed service, zero acknowledgement of special occasion. Wine special had conveniently “sold out” just before we got there, we were offered replacement at 50% increase in price! Over eager busboys aggressively clearing plates before we were done chewing our last bite. Food was average, not bad, not great.Would not go back.

This was our first time visiting this restaurant and I have to say it was the best meal so far. We’ve been here for a week and had dinner at some really good restaurants including Mamas and Merrimans. Service was excellent as well and they have a large wine selection. My husband had the Costolette and I had the Isola. Both were fabulous.

This is a super cute restaurant near all the Wailea resorts. Lovely location, no views if you are wanting that but a beautiful patio and great atmosphere. We shared appetizers- a beef flatbread with truffle oil and Caprese salad. Both well done and tasty. The pastas were just OK. I had the bolognese- average on all accounts with a thin and runny red sauce. The carbonara (a house special that day) had excellent taste and ample toppings. The pasta itself was a little too al dente for our tastes, as in it could have been cooked 2 mins longer to reach the al dente stage. That may just be a personal pasta preference though. We took the cannolis to go for dessert and loved them. Overall a 4/5. We would go back here for sure. Good wine selection as well. Excellent service and friendly, attentive staff. We eye balled what our neighbors were having and it all looked good.

$20 for a glass of wine is way to much. House specialty lasangia was greasy and served in a crock with very little noodles. We did not enjoy our main entree however the prosciutto and melone was delicious.

Fantastic cocktails. Our server was kind, personable, detailed, and attentive. The food was incredible, even though there was a mix-up with a pasta dish we ordered they quickly remedied it, brought us a new one, and comped it from our bill. Also gave us a complimentary dessert for the trouble. Always love matteo’s when we’re in Maui!

We had a fabulous evening with Kiana Z! She did a fantastic job taking care of us and made us feel so welcomed and special. We were celebrating our delayed honeymoon and she treated us to a tiramisu. Extremely attentive and food was delicious. We had the vegan brushetta and Gnocchi. Best service and food we had our entire Maui trip!

Great Italian restaurant with daily specials
Beet salad with butter squash & goat cheese was very tasty. Big enough to share.
Daily special lamb bruschetta with goat cheese was delicious.
Fettuccine with seafood was excellent. Highly recommend.
Cioppino was tasty but little too salty for my last.
Apple tart with vanilla ice cream was just right for the sweet ending and big enough for 2

We've come to anticipate our meals at Matteo's, having enjoyed them in several years past. Sadly, this time they disappointed on several fronts:

(1) We loved coming for their happy hour, which according to our waiter, they have eliminated permanently because they're now "in demand" and don't need to "discount" their food;
(2) This newfound haughtiness was also reflected in the service we received - patronizing and condescending;
(3) We had their lasagna (which in years past was stupendous) and the braised short ribs, neither of which were very good; and
(4) Finally, they increased the pricing on their bottled wines, which are no longer worth the cost.

We were very disappointed and may not return during our upcoming visits.
