Not enough food. We were hungry and ate more when we got home . A side of pasta would have helped and not have affected your overhead . Noisy so hard for us to talk . Otherwise very good

Gary is an awesome server!

The wine list needs to be updated… It does not reflect what’s in stock and the prices are much higher than what is listed on the website.

The cuisine was superb. The service was impeccable! Our waiter was attentive and fun without being annoying.He suggested a great wine. Only complaint was the noise letter that took away from the ambiance.

Server Suki was very attentive and none intrusive. Food was good - my "fish soup" was quite spicy hot and just a tad too salty. My companion dishes were good.

Fantastic experience as per usual. We were lucky to get our favorite waiter, Russell K. He made the overall dining experience even that much better. If I could, I’d give him 6 stars. Look forward to coming back again next January for our annual visit.

Used to be a regular but will never go back. Food was always good, but we were forbidden from going to the bar for a drink before our table was ready by a young lady with limited English, were seated and received minimal service. Our group had two bottles of wine on “wine down Wednesday” where they advertise certain wines are 50% off but they don’t tell you it’s only 30% because they apply a mandatory 20% on full prices, so we paid a mandatory tip with an effective rate of over 36% of bill for service that definitely did NOT deserve 20% in the first place. When we raised it with our server he became belligerent. Too bad because the food is always good, but Matteo’s just lost three customers for good.

Our dinner at Mateo's was OK but we were expecting better One person had a fresh fish dish and said the fish tasted dirty. The pasta bolognese was fine, but nothing special. The wine Wednesday value was good and they have a nice wine selection. Our server was very good.

The food was smaller portioned and tasted pretty average but came with higher price tag. For that we wouldn’t recommend this to our friends or family. We could get average meals elsewhere for a cheaper price. The fountain soda also shocked us being $4 per glass. No mention of it from our waitress and it seemed quite excessive.

We absolutely loved the food but felt very rushed to leave by the staff - we were given the cheque before our dessert had even arrived. This detracted from the relaxed Hawaiian feel we had come to love about our time on Maui.

Cute lil’ restaurant in a non-descript mini mall, very loud and busy. Whole dinner felt rushed and lacked the Maui love we have felt at all other restaurants. Food was pretty good, server dropped our check before dessert was served which felt like we were being pushed out.

Pasta had to be taken back because it was only lukewarm and was very bland. I had the lamb pasta made gluten and dairy free.

Coming in from Arizona, we searched for best Italian on Maui. This was not great Italian food at all. Starting with the overcooked calamari fritti to the rubbery squid ink noodles and too pungent-saucy ravioli...the dinner was not spectacular. We were also disappointed with the inattentive service, our waitress checking in pretty infrequently. The prices were also way high.

The hostess totally ignored our request for outside seating. The first hostess who helped us went outside to look for a table for us. Before she came back a second hostess came to seat us. She said there were no outside tables. I told her we would wait. She said it would be long while. Before we even ordered our drinks another hostess sat 2 groups outside; one 4 and one 2. Very rude hostess!!

We were 4 diners, seated outside. We shared a caesar's salad, which was very good. Had a couple other appetizers, all very good. For a main, I ordered the lasagna; good, thick cheesy top, pretty predictable remainder; I love a thick meaty tomato sauce, which I thought this was a tad on the thin side. Couple of us had the fish which was very well received. (necessary orders due to dietary restrictions.). The flourless chocolate cake was great, but some of our party felt the presentation was a bit over the top. I thought the smears on the cutting board were a bit much but were delicious, so can't complain.

Our server, Rachel, worked hard to make up for the rude hostess and manager. Food is just ok and they serve the red wine way too chilled. Usually on our 3 week stay we would dine here 3 or 4 times...we wont be going back.

Food is flavourful and great presentation. However the portions are small. Filling up on bread that is offered is not the answer.

We checked in with hostess and she took 3 or 4 minutes to find us a table...there were at least 10 available in the outside area we requested...she came back wanting to seat us behind the door...we asked for anyother table and she said they were all spoken for...we said we would sit inside..she checked inside and said the only available was a high top in bar...then we said we were going to leave so she amazingly found a table in the outside area which she said was previously reserved...not happy with the way we were treated on this trip...

Does not live up to the hype. Our server was cold and snooty (Brooklyn) but the busser made up for it; was extremely attentive and friendly.
Gnocchi was undercooked. One of the appetizers came out after the entree and was cold.
Had heard great things so maybe I was expecting more.
