The title says it all, great food, great service, and nice quiet dining. What more could you ask for in a restaurant?

We are north-easternerners who have lived in FL for 25 years - we love Italian food and are usually disappointed in FL. The atmosphere is very comfortable and spacious. It is very handicap accessible. The artisan pizza was good. The marinara was good, but the pasta was very average. Still an enjoyable spot, but just average food at moderately high... More

We were in a hurry to catch a show so we asked Kimberly to rush our order. We ordered pizza and antipasto. Kimberly was amazing at getting us served promptly and we made our show with time to spare. Pizza was very good, my antipasto was quite unlike what our small town Italian restaurant serves so I cannot comment. Great... More

This is a good place to go if you have a lot of family and you are bringing people with an unsophisticated palate

We have eaten here more than once. The restaurant is very pleasant to dine in--spacious, colorful, enjoyable. We love the bread, oil dip and salads.

My sister and I went here. Not the best experience for dinner. Service wasn't the best either. Because of our experience I wouldn't recommend anything but pizza. I hate to say this, I'm just being honest.

Matzaluna has been the place to go for reasonably priced excellent Italian food and pizza on Sanibel for quite a few years. Our pizza was delicious and the artisan bread with superbly seasoned olive oil served while the pizza was cooking was an unexpected treat. Our table at the railing on the upper level provided a great overall view of... More

We went there on the recommendation of a friend, and we weren't disappointed. The bread and oil/cheese/herb to dip it in was fabulous! The pizza was very good also!

We ordered pizza on our first visit, it was very good, wood-fired pizza! We decided to make a return visit & this time had chicken Marsala. The food & service has been very good, I'm sure we will return when in the area again!
