Matteo's - User Reviews

Trevor Fry:

Last night my wife and I along with my son & his partner visited what we would describe as one of our most enjoyable dining experiences. From the moment we entered we were impressed, ambience, service which was attentive without being intrusive. The restaurant appeared to be full to capacity but the noise factor belied this. Food, was sublime. To all involved from the Chef down we thank you all for a wonderful evening. We look forward to one day returning.review  27/11/2011
