We had hoped to eat outdoors, but the tables inside were well spaced and we felt comfortable. Very broad menu with lots of options; waiter happy to provide advice and recommendations. We enjoyed starting with a pizza for the table before entrees, and ended up with take-home bags from our meals. Service was excellent! Wine list was expensive for a pizzeria/cucina.
We ate outside and had a lovely time. Everyone ordered a different pizza and shared. Service was friendly. Food was very good.
Best pizza in the world
My fave UES Spot!
Went for my birthday (been here 3 or 4 times before this though!) and everything was perfect! Food was great, our waitress was amazing and they sat us Right away! Always looking forward to my next trip to San Matteo!
Waiter and staff were great. Food was delicious!
Pizza crust was soggy and pizza not very good as far as the taste. Staff was friendly and helpful. Food was just ok
A wonderful and delicious meal with great service! Perfect neighborhood spot.
Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Highly recommend San Matteo. We'll be back soon.
Great food, great service! Make sure to make a reservation as they get busy.
Best pizzas in town. I always go there or order delivery
One of the best (if not the best) Neapolitan pizza options in New York
Our server was amazing and very polite and welcoming. The mozzarella en corrozza was meh(tasted like bacon honestly which is VERY odd considering it’s bread breadcrumbs and cheese fried).. the procuitto pizza was ok. Sauce was to watery for my liking and kinda ruined everything when I found a few pieces of hair in our food.. not sure if I’d return even though I was so excited to try them out
Loved the food, service and vibe.
We will definitely be back
The food here is delicious and there are so many options. The staff is just fantastic. They are so accommodating and knowledgeable. I always look forward to eating here. It is my neighborhood staple.
During pandemic but made a reservation for outdoor dining. Still had to wait a long time for a table. Food arrived hot and delicious.
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.
Wish they had the vodka pizza
Great pasta and pizza, buzzy atmosphere, very friendly.
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
Service was excellent
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!
The food was amazing! Service was really great too. I really enjoyed my experience with San Matteo.
Delicious authentic Italian dishes with flavors that transcend the casual neighborhood setting.
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!!
Tres bon et très conviviale
Solid pizza. Good neighborhood restaurant! Will go back.
A little too loud
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!
They never sat us. We waiting for 45 minutes and never gave us a table. We had to leave.
Poor food. Noisy.
Had to wait a half hour for our table even though we had a reservation.
Great service and great food
Got 3 pizzas to split between 4 friends and we were filled! Delicious pizzas!
