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.

Wonderful Italian food with a unique blend of flavors that just melts in your mouth. The cocktails are unique & delicious too. We always end with the pistachio strawberry dessert which is divine. Staff is attentive & great for suggestions if you can’t decide.

Just had pasta and a dessert. The Mandilli di Seta was one of the best pasta dishes I’ve ever eaten. The lobster pasta was also excellent as was the pistachio cake.

What a fantastic meal! We went for a business lunch meeting and with Covid restrictions the restaurant was only partially filled but perfect for business conversation. Everything was exquisite from the simple bread basket with olive oil to each of our entrées. All the handmade pasta dishes were decadent. The three of us got three different entrées and they were amazing!Our service was spot on. Cannot wait to go back when the restaurants are at full capacity because I’m sure it’s a lively vibrant venue.

Me and my husband here celebrating our anniversary in MATTEO'S and it didn't disappoint us. From the starter to the dessert the quality and tastes of everything was outstanding, might have been the best meal I have ever been served in LAS VEGAS. Service was delightful and very professional

Absolutely delicious fresh seafood pasta with right balance seafood to pasta; heat level in sauce just enough to enhance flavor.

We celebrated our New Year's Eve here, and we had a great dining experience. The lady who served us was very welcoming and explained their food well We like the dishes from the starters, pasta to our entree( lamb chop and sea bass), especially the seafood linguine, very impressed by the seasoning, texture of the noodles, and the finish taste! The service is great, and we like that they replaced our plates with new ones for every single dish. Definitely wouldcome back again!

Waiter went above and beyond for excellent service. Started with holding out the chairs for seating to opening the seasoning packets. Took time to explain all menu items with such detail. Now the food was perfection! Pasta dishes were full of amazing flavors making each taste bud in your mouth come alive with joy!!

Truthfully, we’re not really “fancy” food eaters. I should’ve looked at the menu before going here because I only saw “Italian” food before reserving our table. Very fancy... too fancy for us. My husband also got a prime rib meal and it was very fatty. Disappointed. Service was great but to us it was not worth the expensive bill.

The only downside was that the waiter forgot to take our order. We had to flag him down when we were tired of waiting. Pretty sure it wasn't intentional.
The food was great! The ravioli was Outstanding!!!!!

The food is truly a delicacy at its best! Every dish, I’ve have tasted is very authentic and the flavors are distinct to other Italian restaurants. The chef came to our table and explained few dishes on the menu with so much professionalism and knowledge. He uses very authentic products and recipes from different places in Italy. I truly enjoyed the food and the service. The ultimate experience, and the best part that my girlfriend loved it as well. My favorite Italian place here in Las Vegas Thus far.
