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.

Service was fantastic. The restaurant was full and packed in. Noise level was quite high. The pork filled ravioli was very good but the short rib pasta was bad. The filling was all mushy, which was very disappointing, considering this was a beautiful short rib to start with. The first thing that came to mind was Taco Bell meat. Then the richness of the pasta together with the creamy sauce was way too fatty… it needed a little counterpoint, like some citrus, a little bit of Gremmalata or something. The waiter brought the manager over who was more than happy to do something about it, which was very much appreciated, but we did not take him up on that offer. Again, similar to B&B which Matteo’s replaced, this restaurant disappoints. We will not return.

The service is always excellent and well coordinated. The food is incredible, mouth explosion kind of flavors. Even when it’s busy the quality is still there. We have become regulars quickly.

Their most popular dish (which i’ve had at their other restaurant, The Factory Kitchen) was unbelievably salty. Basically inedible. We brought friends with us here that has never been here before and it was embarrassing. We ordered 2 orders of the dish and basically didn’t didn’t touch the second one. Goes to show that even a sister restaurant’s quality can be bad so never order 2 of the same dish in case it’s a disaster.

If you are in Vegas Matteo’s is a must. We had a table in perfect view of the team making the homemade pasta. I noted on my reservation my very annoying soy allergy. I try not to make my allergy everyone else’s problem and just make smart menu selections. Our server J.R. went above and beyond to accommodate me and clear all my selections with the chef. This means so much to me. J.R. And the rest of our service team were superstars. This is truly a restaurant with the customer experience in mind. I highly recommend the burratina appetizer, the gnocchi, and the mandilli de serta. I also highly recommend J.R., he will ensure you have an excellent dining experience.

Best Italian food I've had in years if not ever. Unbelievably good. Black truffle pasta was to die for. Forget Raos, Amalfi, Spago, etc etc. do yourself a favor and go here.

Food was amazing, my only concern is the restaurant was mostly empty, and we got sat right between 2 of the only few couples there all on the same bench booth, made it hard to have a conversation without feeling like everyone could hear, it is also still not the most comfortable to be so close to random strangers when there is amble room.

The service was okay however the value of the dining experience was not on par with the final bill. The food was standard at best. We ordered the shrimp and salmon entrees. The side dish of green beans was bland and not worth the extra charge. Earlier this week my girlfriend and I ate at Hell’s Kitchen and the bills were almost identical, but with one difference the Food At Hell’s Kitchen didn’t suck. When looking for Italian Cuisine look elsewhere or maybe the Olive Garden.

Disappointed you could not add a protein to any pasta. Had the Gnocchi and honestly tasted like It came out of a jar. Kale salad was great but definitely do not recommend. Would not eat here again. Service was just average.

If I could give 0 stars I would. I can't speak to the food, just the customer service since I never got to eat there. I made reservations about a month in advance for 9:30 pm on Sunday, 6/13, for my husband and I after our elopement. We were staying at the Venetian and excited for a special dinner. I noted that the dinner was to celebrate our nuptials. We were running late, our driver brought us back to the Palazzo by mistake so I called to inform them we'd be about 10-15 min late. The hostess or whoever it was that answered the phone said that if we did not arrive by 9:45 that we would lose the reservation. We were on our way to the restaurant and at 9:39 she called me back and told me that they were closing. What restaurant cancels a reservation 9 min past the reservation time for customers celebrating a special occasion? I'm sorry but that is not the Vegas hospitality I expected, especially on my wedding night.
