Italian
Matteo's Ristorante Italiano is the product of a long-standing friendship between Ferdinandi and Chef Angelo Auriana. Ferdinandi and Auriana share the vision of imparting their Italian roots and memories through food and hospitality. The restaurant's soul is purely Italian! The original trattoria, The Factory Kitchen serving traditional Italian recipes, opened its doors October 2013, in The Arts District, Downtown Los Angeles.

In the kitchen, Chef Auriana prepares dishes using fresh, seasonal and locally sourced ingredients. The approachable menu at Matteo's highlights the simplicity of traditional local recipes. These recipes have been passed down from generation to generation within Italian families.

Beverage Director and Sommelier Francine Diamond-Ferdinandi has created a wine list which reflects the essence of their distinctive regions.

great Italian food and excellent service. Definitely will come back again. The water that they serve is not a tap water. It's very smooth and I drank a lot of it

Service was great! Exceeded the venue's appearance. Food was good, and exceeded expectations. However, the price for a cocktail was a surprising... Granted I ordered it, a Whiste Pig Old Fashioned... But $38!!! Come on... I had 2, as I usually do.. So $76 of my $282 bill was two cocktails... I was blown away. I paid the bill and tipped the server. But will NEVER return due to the blindsided cost of a drink in this place. I am a local and understand where i was, Venetian, on the strip... Still, I drink Old fashioned cocktails alllll the time. I even drink Whistle Pig 12 year often. Ive never paid that price before in this town, anywhere else. Not a restaurant, hotel bar, lounge, club etc... So.... If you head to this spot, you'd be better off going to a higher end experience venue. You are being billed for it, so I recommend you check out other places, leave this one to the unsuspecting tourists.

My husband and I were expecting fresh homemade pasta and fresh made authentic sauces but were highly disappointed we had better pasta and sauce and over all better entrees at the Grand Luxe Cafe.

The food is incredible, and very unique. Not your typical Italian experience, so if you want lasagna and fettucine alfredo, go elsewhere. Our two pasta dishes were maybe the best I've ever had. Service was fabulous, ambiance is very good, just little noisier than I'd prefer but not that big of a deal. It is not inexpensive, however, and they make a point of telling you that they do not serve "American style" huge portions. Overall, we thought it was amazing.

This is traditional Northern Italian quinine. Highly recommend the bruschetta as an appetizer. The main courses were exceptional and the wait staff was very knowledgable on the food and wine. Wine list is short, but enough variety in quality and price. When the chef comes to your table, you know you have come to a restaurant that cares about their customers.

We had an absolutely amazing time!! A quiet and romantic restaurant by all. TheSaturday special was a chef choice where he actually came and prepared a pasta with white truffles right at our table. Best pasta I have ever put in my mouth!! We also enjoyed the beef tartare and a few glasses of wine. We will definitely be back!!

The food was fantastic. Really amazing! I was a little disappointed at the lack of physical distancing with some (but not all) of the tables. The host tried to sit us at a table that was right next to another table that was full. When I asked for a different table, he gave me a look like I was being demanding. I didn't appreciate that at all. Our waiter was nice but not very attentive. That being said, it was a first rate meal. I'm inclined to give them another shot in spite of the service shortcomings.

AMAZING!!!! I cannot brag about this place enough! The food was impeccable, the service was outstanding.
The manager, Russell Moffatt was so personable, we absolutely loved him!
The restaurant was so beautiful, the chef was making homemade pasta which melts in your mouth!
The lamb was cooked to perfection, the chicken was roasted and cooked so delicately, and the plating of the dishes was picture perfect!

There was another family dining and they were bragging about this place as they were walking out the door!
Simply put, best food you will ever eat in Las Vegas!

The food was incredible. We are still talking about the mandilli de seta. It is the most amazing pasta that we have ever had.
Service with Alexis was impeccable. We will definitely visit again the next time that we are in Vegas- heck we may plan a short trip back to Vegas just to eat here again- its really that good.

Food so-so. Had the blanket pasta, looked like a green blob, very little taste, awful presentation. Waiter was great. Social distancing of tables was unexpectedly closer together than expected. Very overpriced. Disappointing for the hype.

Our visit to Matteo’s was unexpected but amazing. Sara the host was lovely. Our server Thomas was great. Super helpful with menu description and recommendations. Eve our busser was very nice. The food was delicious. Flavors and presentation were great. Had a few cocktails and they were delicious. A little coffee and dessert as well. To die for. Must visit and we will return. We also met the Chef. Thank Chef Eduardo. We appreciate your work.

We had a reservation for 9 to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic. The only disappointment was the way they seated us. Our party was split up because we were at 2 separate tables with space in between. It would have been nicer if there was one large table or two put together. It was not a great set for what we wanted, but overall we had a great experiance.

It’s Vegas so I don’t expect great deals- but I do expect a good relationship between quality and cost. The value at Matteo’s just isn’t there. Drinks are overpriced even for Vegas. And the food- the best part was the six stuffed peppadew peppers. My truffle butter noodles was the smallest portion of Italian food I’ve received in my life (not an exaggeration) — maybe 20 small noodles that didn’t even fill the indentation of the plate. The “sausage” looked and tasted like cubed ham in a can drenched in melted butter and truffle. My wife’s pasta dish which had a red sauce tasted like a homemade chef boyardee. Good noodles, better portion (though still on the small side), but the sauce was just sad.

Conveniently no one asks how everything is once you get your entrees- just 30 seconds after you get your appetizer and drinks. Also the bread came with oil and vinegar in tiny plastic containers and nothing to mix them in/on and there was enough for like 2 pieces to get some flavor.

They’re trying to be high class and fancy but it’s average at best and way overpriced for the quality.

Service was okay but not very attentive.

First off, the service was pretty good. We had two starters-the tomato and cheese plate was delicious while the prosciutto was bland and hard to eat. Next was a ravioli dish which was delicious. Sadly the scallops were sandy and overcooked. Sadly, what was good was great but didn’t make up for the other two dishes.

I’m a local and this is my current favorite restaurant. The pasta is handmade, so it’s light and delicious. Absolutely love the modenesi. Yesterday, two friends were married in my home and we celebrated afterwards with dinner here. The service was terrific, down to the mini wedding cake. It’s a breath of fresh air on the crowded Strip dining scene.
