MATTEO'S OSTERIA Ratings and Reviews
Well... Even having a reservation we had to wait. They put us on a table that you could barely read the menu because it was too dark. We had hjgh expectation about the restaurant and were dissappointed. And it was so hard to call our waitress. The guy serving water from argentina was the most nice and who gave us more attention.
Many of Maui’s restaurants tend toward seafood, of course, so we were pleasantly surprised to find this Italian gem. The chef used to work for the four seasons Italian before opening Matteo’s. Service was excellent. Pasta hand made. My husband loved his bolognese. I ordered pizza. I was told it was a thin crust, but if you know what a napolonese crust really is, then don’t consider this thin. However, very delicious at moderate prices. The restaurant is in a strip mall and not high end dining. More what we would find back home in suburbia. After dark, the view doesn’t matter, so no big deal.
We really enjoyed our pasta dish and suggest the home made pasta as a good option. Wide selection of wines by the glass and friendly service. We were served efficiently and our server was helpful with menu and wine selections. A bit overpriced for what it is but we enjoyed a nice evening overall.
Great food and wine list but we couldn’t get over the noise. It was so loud that we really couldn’t have a very good conversation. Otherwise everything else was great. Just be sure you sit right next to the person you want to talk to otherwise it will be a difficult night.
We were seated inside and right on time by a lovely hostess. Our waiter was very good but overly busy so service was a bit spotty. The food was excellent, everything that was ordered was delish but the noise level was so loud that we couldn't even talk across the table. We have been there before, sat outside and it was delightful.
This was our first time dining at Matteo's, recommended by one of hotel staff. It was outstanding! You don't expect to find Italian food of this quality in a fish-centric resort, but it was the equal of several fine Italian restaurants at home. Among the outstanding dishes we tried were ahi bruschetta, a flavorful trio of the familiar tomato and basil-topped toasts, but these were topped with impeccable ahi sashimi. Absolutely delicious. The lasagna, an Italian-style Bolognese and bechamel layering, was as delicious as it looked in its photographs, and the pappardelle lamb ragu featured perfectly cooked pasta and deicious tomato-lamb stew. The wine list is extensive, featuring a wide selection of Italian wines, if pricey. This will be a new must-dine location on future trips to Maui.
Everything was perfect except my entree. I had risotto pescatore. It something very hot sprinkled over the top. My three friends all had samples when it arrived before I tasted it and said it was too hot for them to eat. I was able to eat a couple of bites. I told our waiter it was very hot and he offered to replace it but I declined his offer because I did not want to be beginning my dinner when everyone else was done with theirs.
Once again we were so pleased with both the food and service...Justin as always was there to make sure we got everything in a timely, but relaxed manner, allowing us to carry-on our conversations, as always we found the Calamari superb, but also tried a new appetizer the Italian Poke, was also fabulous. Main dishes pasta and fish were all incredible. Don't miss Matteo's when your in Maui.
We arrived a little early and were graciously seated by the hostess. Our server "T" was fabulous. He was very knowledgeable about the food and the wines.
Great service and great food.
My wife does not east dairy so for her birthday treat he got her a limoncello. Very thoughtful and gracious.
Thank you for making her 60th birthday a memorable one.
I was staying at the Grand Wailea with my teens and loved how close this was to the hotel and that it had a free parking lot (could have walked from hotel if I hadn't had an older person with us). The food was fabulous and our server was knowledgeable and attentive. The cost was reasonable as compared to the other restaurants at which we ate on our trip. I enjoyed it so much that I sent a group of 14 back the next night and they raved about it. I highly recommend!
We stayed at the Grand Champion Villas for the month of January! We were so happy to have decided to go up to “Matteo’s and give it a try! Russell was our server and was kind friendly and delivered outstanding service! We meet Matteo one of the evenings that we dined! Many compliments to chef! The food was over the top with flavour,freshness etc.....We are going back again next year to Maui and will be returning with no hesitation!!It’s a nice short walk from the villas! I would highly recommend this restaurant!! Mahalo to all!!!

This was by far the best meal we had on Maui. The service was excellent and the food was amazing. All three of us took one bite and said "you have to taste this!" as we sampled each other's order. The food was brought out and presented to us, and the manager came around to make sure that we were happy. Don't miss dining here!
Everything here was fantastic right from the check in to the table we were sat at to the food and wine. They have created a little outdoor oasis for their clients dinning pleasure.
All the food is homemade including the pasta and everything was delicious. There were six of us and we all had different meals and we all loved everything we got.
Our waiter was “J” and I must say he is by far the best waiter we have had here on the island or anywhere for that matter. He was attentive, knowledgeable, and personable . We will definitely be back.
