Our server Michael was amazing. This was a birthday celebration and everything went perfectly. Very happy there were vegan options. Great atmosphere, I would recommend. Thank you.

We brought friends from out of town to enjoy an evening. We were greeted at the door and waited 15 minutes to be seated after a reservation time. The restaurant was half full at best. Our server introduced yourself took our drink order and another 15 minutes went by and she proceeded to bring two of the four drinks were not what we had ordered to the table. I said maybe she should write it down...haha and she informed us that the tablet she was using was acting up. I ordered the special and the rest of my party ordered off the menu. When the meals came, a random meal was put in front of me..truly didn’t know what is was, when the server said “can she bring anything else?” I told her that what was in front of me is not what I ordered. She then told me they were out of the special...I guess they just chose for me. Disappointed to say the least. Beware

Horrible. I complained about the wine service and the owner Mateo chased me out of the restaurant. He was absolutely crazy. I almost had to call the police.

Great food and not the most liberally priced place for Wailea standards. Far too busy to cook for Thanksgiving this year and their holiday offerings were just as amazing as their regular menu. Rachel (if I recall correctly) was fantastic! Very attentive and when my wine selection was unavailable she was very helpful and apologetic.

Wonderful Thanksgiving Dinner at MATTEO’S! After a reservation mistake (on my part) they did their best to accommodate us on an extremely busy night. Delicious food, great service I highly recommend MATTEO’S for all groups! We will definitely be back!

The atmosphere was nice, the server uber friendly. However, the food was not worth the 300 we paid for a table of three. Had to send back the Calamari, too rubbery, the poke appetizer had maybe 8 tiny pieces, and the squid ink pasta was not "really" squid ink pasta. Or at least it did not taste like it. Save your money, find a more authentic Italian restaurant.

We accidentally found this restaurant. The waiters and all staff were friendly and the food outstanding. A very nice wine list that didn't break the bank. We will be going back!

Had reservations was early asked if we could sit outside but wasn’t able to. So we were seated at the couch table I hate not to have my own table why would I want to sit next to strangers try to have a private conversation with my wife. Took a while for a waiter to show up but he did a good job. Order a Ceasar Salad would give it a 3.5 for taste plenty to share. Bread was good. I had Spaghetti Bolognese nice size serving but not a lot of flavor. Wife got A caprese wasn’t really impressive. Took a long time for food to come out the Chef actually brought us each some soup and apologized and said they messed up which I did appreciate. Price is reasonable for area but I personally would not go back. Place was crowded and very loud add that to where I was seated not a very enjoyable evening.

Nice dinner with friends. Had the lasagna. Could’ve been a little bigger portion. Tasted great though. Would’ve like olive oil with bread basket. Instead got a chickpea spread.

Just outstanding in every way. Beautiful restaurant with great wine list and outstanding food. Service from start to finish was great. Rachel was knowledgeable, friendly and pair our meal perfectly. We started with drinks in the bar and then moved to a very nice table. We had the bruschetta, Calamari, Beet salad with goat cheese, maui onion with mushrooms and sausage pizza, lasagna (unbelievably delicious) plus pellegrino and white and red wines. Absolutely outstanding dining experience.

Best meal in Wailea! We come to Maui every year and this was the first year we discovered this incredible gem and it won’t be the last ! Everything was SO outstanding ! Food is the best we have had in this part of the island and if we lived here we would be regulars. So happy we finally discovered our new favorite on on our favorite island !

Seating was delayed without explanation. The receptionist carried on a long conversation with a friend while patrons stacked up at the door.

We requested Kiana and she is excellent. She knows us, welcomes us like old friends. Excellent service, sense of humor, just enough attention.

Dinner options great, as usual

MATTEO’S is our favorite Italian restaurant on Maui. Matteo personally oversees the kitchen and the meals never disappoint. They have an extensive wine list featuring both Italian and American wines. They now offer half orders of their large salads, which allows us to try a couple salads without dinner. Service is very good. There is little turn over of wait staff. Highly recommend MATTEO’S. You do need reservations

Food is always great!! The service has always been 5 star, knowledgeable, warm and when you are a repeat customer especially warm!! We dine here routinely. The only issue is noise. The outdoor patio is more quiet. Inside seating is very noisy except in bar. We will continue to return routinely!! Last visit the risotto was delicious!

It was just okay. I didn't care for the chick pea spread to be served with the bread..... I was expecting olive oil since it's Italian restaurant. I didn't care for my butternut squash ravioli. I thought the squash flavor reminded me of baby food and the ravioli was drenched in just melted butter. My husband said his fish was just okay.

We had a reservation and showed up on time. However, we were kept waiting for 15 minutes before being seated. We sat at our table for 10 minutes before a waiter appeared and acknowledged us. It took a full 15 minutes before he came back to take our order, another 15 minutes for salads to appear, and a full 35 minutes after that before our dinners appeared. That’s right, we were served dinner 1 hour and 15 minutes after we were seated and 1 hour and 30 minutes after our reservation time. No apologies were offered during any of this time. All that being said, the food was very good but we will never go back here or recommend this place to our friends. An apology or an explanation of why it took so long to get dinner would have gone a long way but.....

So...
Felt rushed by waitress
Everyone kept apologizing about making us wait - but we really didn’t wait
In and out in under one hour with an overpriced glass of wine
One appetizer
And a bland bolongnese
Spend your money at Monkeypod kitchen
Also Expensive but worth it ...
Or drive to Kihei ...

The Arancini was cold . The pasta water was not salted. Way to much cheese on the lasagna . The tiramisu in a mason jar was not good , all filling .
