My husband and I ordered pizzas. Mine was gluten free and was what you typically get (thin, dry crust). My husband did not order the gluten free option, but his crust was very thin and was definitely not made by hand - not what you...More

We would have had dinner here every night if it wasn't our first time staying on Sanibel Island. Next time we will be here for most of our dinners out. Excellent food and service!

Matzaluna is usually one of the first eateries we visit when on Sanibel. Good Italian food & drinks, extensive wine list, pleasant wait staff, happy hour. Wood fired pizza fabulous. Like to draw and write with crayons on paper table cloths.

Matzaluna is excellent. We ate at many places in Sanibel and this is by far the best. Pizza was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for great pizza and service

You can get better Italian food literally ANYWHERE else. Poor food - who can't make a margharita pizza? Indifferent service, loud, chaotic atmosphere. No idea why you would go here when Sanibel has so many good restaurants.

Good fish. The crab sauce used on my fish seemed to be the crab bisque on the menu. The pasta accompanying the meal was overcooked and surprisingly dreadful. I didn't know pasta, particularly at an "Italian restaurant" could be so disappointing. Good service. We came...More

This place has a traditional Italian menu and decor, and while it can get crowded there are a lot of tables and plenty of parking spaces. We had fried mushrooms to start, and they were very good. I had a tortellini that was very tasty,...More
