Snowy night in Indiana but the meal was fantastic. Service by Brandon was even better. The Pork Loin special our friend ordered was the favorite of the table. We will definitely be back.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. I have been to Matteo's many times over the years, and neither my companions nor I have ever been disappointed. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful, the decor is welcoming and attractive, and the food is delicious. It is not, thankfully, a sports bar. One of my favorite places to eat in Hamilton County.

A little disappointed. We’ve been many times and had excellent everything. This time, our Shrimp cocktail was clearly pre frozen. Salad had old cucumbers. Meals came out at room temp. The manager was gracious and generous in his response. We will be back.

We made a destination trip to Noblesville to enjoy some Italian food. Unfortunately we were disappointed with the quality and presentation of the food. We began with calamari which were tasteless with a soggy breading. One of us had the Pollo Quattro Fromaggio in which the chicken was covered in excessive cheese some of which was not melted as it should be. The other meal was a special pasta of the evening which turned out to be very spicy and there was no mention of this at the time of ordering. The service that evening was good. Preparing good Italian food is not a difficult task - fresh ingredients and use of simple flavors. Unfortunately because of this experience we won't be returning.

My family of eight just left Matteo's for New Year's Eve dinner. I tried to politely convey my disappointment several times while there, but was dismissed. I made reservations in advance, called earlier today when I added one more person and we were seated upstairs, like it was an after thought. Our waiter, was trying his best to wait on the tables upstairs, but the logistics were awful for him. I felt for him, as everything he has to do is downstairs. However, we were seated 35 minutes before we were even asked about our drink orders and then we waited and waited and waited. I expressed my concern to the hostess who got the manager. At that moment, they were helpful. Once we had our drinks and bread delivered after being seated for nearly and HOUR I never saw them again. The waiter tried his best, but we spent over $250, nearly $300 for slow service, lack of ambience and frankly disregard for our unsatisfactory experience. I never complain because I've worked in food service and I get it. Our waiter was visibly sweating because he was working so hard, but to not have anyone check on us, ask us what can we do or help the poor guy out was appalling to me. I politely said my peace to the hostess as we were leaving and she asked if I wanted to join their rewards program for a buy one get one free coupon. I just spent hundreds of dollars on a subpar meal and experience, no I would not like to join your rewards program. This is a disappointed customer, who went to Matteo's for family events and occasions and because we loved it there, this was so disappointing we won't be going back.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in the area. However, we were disappointed in the menu on New Year's Eve. I understand the need to simplify it to handle the large volume of customers that evening, but all of our first and second choice menu items were not available. I highly recommend Matteo's, but maybe not on New Year's Eve.

We absolutely love Matteo's! The tortellini is my husband's favorite dish and it did not disappoint. I tried the salmon in red pepper cream sauce and it was delicious. The only downside is that we have noticed the last couple of visits that our waiters (different servers) were in such a hurry that it took away from the experience. We look forward to the ambience and food, so feeling rushed is a little disappointing. We will definitely be back though.

We've loved Matteo's and have gone there for years. Went on New Year's Eve, specifically for Chicken Picatta. My wife's favorite. Well, once we got there, it wasn't on the menu our waiter Mark explained. After that point, he didn't review any specials with us and seemed in a hurry to get us out of there. My wife ordered Shrimp Scampi, which once brought to the table had no flavor and no sauce on the noodles. My wife simply asked for a dish of sauce and wished to keep dish at table. Instead, Mark took her dish and walked around the restaurant with it for several minutes we viewed before finally taking it back to kitchen. My food was getting cold so she and I split my dish while she waited. Once her dish returned, it had some sauce on it, but it was watery and had little flavor. Also, there was a hair or two in her food. Disappointing. No apologies from waiter or management? Long time customer, but not sure if we'll ever go back.

We love, love, love Matteo’s! It’s one of our favorite restaurants and we usually eat there at least once a week. Great selection of items, gorgeous old world ambiance and terrific service. We love the tortellini Matteos & spaghetti del golfo. What more could you ask for?!

My husband and I dined at Matteo's (of Noblesville) for our 17-year wedding anniversary on a Friday evening. We were seated quickly, maybe due to the fact that we had made the reservation in adavance. Our server was extremely accomodating and polite-and the food, complete with dessert and coffee-was exquisite. We are always seeking deliciously authentic Italian fare and we finally found it. We will return as soon as possible! ;) Thank you again.

Dinner with friends. Food was very good and reasonably priced. Service was poor. After being seated promptly, having a reservation, we waited for waiter to stop by. He took our orders and he told us that fresh bread and dipping sauce would be right out. I also ordered a glass of Merlot with my meal. Our food was delivered, but no bread which we had to ask for again. Never did receive my glass of wine. Not sure what waiter’s problem was, but we won’t be returning. I gave him a minimal tip only because the food was very good.

Date with my wife. Everything was great as usual. Service was paced just right. Didn’t feel hurried and the food came out in a casual timeframe.
Service staff was professional and accommodating to all of our requests.

I love Matteo's. The food is always excellent. It promotes flavors I cannot create at home. I expect them to WOW me, and they always do. I travel from Lafayette to eat at Matteo's, and never regret the extra effort to dine there. Because of price, I don't get to do it as often as I would like. I look forward to a wine paired 4 course dinner next. Thank you for the opportunity to compliment your establishment.

It was a night out with my wife and me. The 2 times we have been there, food was delicious and as far as I can see not a bad seat anywhere. Wife had shrimp w/ spaghetti, the best she has ever had. My linguine w/ white cream sauce, asparagus, chicken sausage & dried tomato was ever so tasty. Lastly, my wife's hand made cosmopolitan was perfectly blended and not too sweet. Great waiters.

Great food, great service. My only complaint is we had a 4:30 reservation on a Saturday and when we arrived the place was pretty much empty and we were seated at a table right inside the entrance. It was very cold outside and as more people came in the draft that blew in from the doors made it frigid. I asked that our party be moved to the back where it was warmer. My suggestion to Matteo's is turn up the heat during the frigid winter if you plan to seat guests so close to the doors.

I’ve been here over a dozen times, it’s always good. Tonight. Was bad... very slow service. My daughter and I ordered the same thing. When they showed up. They were totally different. I mentioned this to the waiter. He tried to to explain to me what happened. I said. I just want what I ordered. He took my plate and 5 or 5 mins later brought me the same thing basically. Ether dish was correct. Either had in them what I ordered. First was missing mushrooms. Second was missing chicken. The sauce was incorrect on both attempts. But my check was still for the full amount

Again. Just disappointed.

We have been to Matteo's a number of times before and were pleased. This time not so much. Got there at 6:30. Sat for 20 minutes before we spoke to server. He was pleasant but not so attentive. Veal was too tough to cut and was comped. Will probably try one more time because you can have an off night.
