I had dined here multiple times prior to the renovation and can say each time was magnificent and was very disappointed in Saturday’s experience. I ordered the veal and it was so salty. My waiter dropped the bottled water bottle on the table and the sampler mozzarella was blah. We sat right outside the entrance to the bathrooms and felt a draft the entire time. It was not worth the 165 for two and I was sadly disappointed.

While the food was great, the service was horrendous. Our water never got refilled, drinks were served after dinner (which took an hour to come out). When service is bad, you think you can call over the manager to assist. Think again- the manager came over to tell us the waitress is in the back crying. Why is that our problem? If she's having a bad day, don't let that impact our dinner, find a replacement. We're celebrating a birthday, not what we want to hear. Will not be back.

Nice ambiance and decor, however the food was not worth the price. The flavors were not there. We ordered linguini and white clam sauce. The sauce lacked garlic and salt. Very bland. The clams seemed old and seafood was not fresh. Disappointed.

Would recommend Matteo's of Huntington to friends without a doubt. Based on the excellent decor and quality of the food, I expected the prices to be higher than they were, which makes Matteo's such a great find.

The music was terrible. With all the great Italian songs and singers what they played over their sound system made your ears bleed. The place was as cold inside as it was outside. The service was somewhat erratic. The food was good-thank God for that!

2 of three entrees were served cool (should have been hot). We had to ask for drinks - never offered. We had to ask for grated cheese, pepper, etc. The noise level from the music and other diners was very loud. Our server seemed inexperienced. Overall, not a great experience for $184.

3rd time at this restaurant, average food, but more importantly,, VERY SLOW,, took more than 20 minutes to have a server even approach, After drinks, apps arrive, over an hour for food to arrive. As we asked about the timing, the "manager" spoke to us in a very condescending tone, and was simply rude.
Not an apology, nothing?
As the food is simply average and service poor, as well as the horrible manager, I would never go back,
There are too many other good places with in a 2 mile radius to go and have less aggravation.

After being seated at our reserved time, we waited over 15 minutes for service and finally called someone over to find help. It was an early reservation and there were very few patrons in the restaurant. There was no excuse for being ignored. The waitress who we called over ended up serving us even though it wasn't her station. She was very pleasant. However the whole experience was disappointing, especially since we traveled almost an hour to get there after hearing rave reviews.

Nice appearance outside. Very loud inside. Sat at a table nearly in the doorway between the dining area and the bar. People kept walking past our table. Also had to ask someone to take our drink order after sitting at our table for 30 minutes. Will not be returning.

This was our third time dining At Matteo’s in Huntington. I was a bit disappointed. I originally made reservations for a table for 6, but modified it, through Open Table to 4. The restaurant claimed it was still for 6 even though Open Table had sent me a confirmation of my modification. We were then offered a table right in the doorway. When I resisted, and asked for a table in the other side, they said the side was closed, as well as the back. They broke down the table for 6 while we waited at the receptionist desk. Essentially, they squeezed all dinners into the front area. You can imagine the noise level, so chatting during dinner was difficult. I guess because they offered a Prix Fix menu, they wanted to limit the amount of customers.

The food was good, the service was very good! But the ambience was ruined by the noice and closeness of the tables. I Would also suggest a coat room be added somewhere. Bulky winter coats on the backs of the chairs did not help the situation.

Our second time at Matteo's. Enjoyed the food so much. Especially the Zucchini Fritters. Had a great Caeser salad and four of us split two large meals. Waiter was good enough but not super attentive with drink refills and forgot our order of grilled chicken so we were almost done with the meal by the time it came out. But the food is definitely great and the place has be redone beautifully. Will definitely be back when craving Italian.

Our waitress Jennifer was excellent she recommended a few choices that we really enjoyed. She didn’t rush taking our orders and explained our menu options. Prices are very reasonable, the wine that we had to choose from were exceptional and the prices varied but had great cost options. It was very crowded and the tables are too close together and it’s hard to have a regular conversation. The eggplant,pasta and chicken cutlets were excellent. Definitely a must go to location. Except for the noise level it’s a 10 out of 10.

Small portions even though we ordered the family sized platter
Chicken pieces were small, dry and shriveled up

This was our first time there and it was a very disappointing experience.

The one positive was the chef agreed that the meal was subpar and so he took the price of the entree off the bill

Our server was very nice but the actual service was terrible. The appetizer which featured 3 mozzarella cheeses was brought out to us with 3 cheeses but 2 of the same because they were out of one...I would have preferred to be given the choice of something else, the Caesar salad was average but our enteees which included a special pork osso bucco was very good.
The cappuccinos were so terrible that we didn’t drink them.
Overall the dinner was okay but I wouldn’t go back.

Wow!!! I stopped coming here for a while, wasn't happy with the food, but I started hearing some good reviews from friends etc and decided to stop in for a drink and try it again, so happy we did! We were greeted by a lovely hostess Isabell, then decided to sit .at the bar Mike the bartender was absolutely fantastic!! He made me the most perfect margarita and gave some delish suggestions from the menu...It was amazing!!! He was right on point! Professional and friendly, it was a complete pleasure coming here again and we'll continue!
