At San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina located in the Upper East Side of New York City, guests enjoy authentic Neapolitan pizzas, panuozzi and other Italian favorites. Panuozzi, which is made with charred pizza dough that is folded over and stuffed with tasty ingredients, is growing in popularity, especially in the New York City pizzeria scene. San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina has mastered this unique dish with its selection of panuozzi.

Because San Matteo Pizzeria e Cucina is open until 11 p.m., it is a suitable place for late-night meals with family or friends.

Excellent food and service was very good.
Tables are a very tight. Unable to get into my chair due to the fact that the chairs directly behind me were too close. People at table behind us were oblivious and not helpful.
Overall, very good and delicious pizzas.

I've been to San Matteo twice & LOVED it both times. The food is some of the best Italian I've had since living in Manhattan and the service was good too. The portions are decent & I'm never disappointed :)

Service was horrible. Had an 8pm reservation and was not seated until after 830. Bartender and hostess had terrible attitudes.

Tavolo attaccato ad altri, nel tipico usò newyorkese di utilizzare ogni millimetro, pizza decente ma prezzi fuori da ogni grazia di Dio.
Passare oltre pls

It's February. I requested a 'nice' table to celebrate a birthday. We were given the closest table to the door & it was VERY cold and VERY uncomfortable! We all (4 of us) ordered pizza. It is the thin crust type but a soooo thin it fell limp when I tried to pick it up. It even fell apart when we tried to cut it. For NY pizza, I was very disappointed! Plus, my son brought 3 little pastries to celebrate the birthday & we were shared $12.00 for them serving it! This was definitely a 1 and done!

San Matteo was awesome! The food the service, you name it! Our waiter was amazing and everyone else part of the staff was very attentive. I wish I asked for the name of our waiter he was awesome! The very tall Italian looking guy was great at recommending great dishes and the other Spanish guy (might just be a runner not sure) was also very helpful. He continuously made sure we were doing good and recommended some yummy deserts. However, I would say make a reservation. This place is VERY popular! Amazing business! Thanks Guys!

Awful service. Took 20 minutes to order wine and almost an hour for our food to come to the table.

We celebrated my daughter’s 11th birthday with 11 friends and it was exceptional! From amazing pizza, to catered service and friendly staff, it was truly amazing! I am so grateful to San Mateo Pizzeria to accommodate our group! The girls were extremely happy and had a blast! I highly recommend their pizza!!

Food was delicious and our waiter was wonderful and speedy. Thank you for the great meal!

Unfortunately, we decided to pass on coffee + Nutella pizza because the noise from the speakers with the football game was very off-putting. We could not have a conversation as the advertisements from the game were blasting. Such a shame. It would be so lovely to have some Italian favorites like Pino Daniele that echo the theme of the restaurant. Just a suggestion!

Ottima la pizza per chi cerca la vera pizza italiana. Molto buoni anche i Menù alla carta. Ciro il proprietario è una persona molto accomodante; sono inoltre stati i vincitori di Little Big Italy Ny ed è spesso presente nei video di Piero Armenti del mio viaggio a NY
