Bottom line: very good Italian spot. Pasta was fresh. Dinner was amazing. Tried to get in here a second time and was unable to unfortunately. Loved this spot. If you are looking for a good Italian joint, you wont be disappointed. This is coming from...someone in NJ and married to an Italian…lol.More

Very good food, excellent service. Had to sit indoors even though we asked for outside setting. 😕. Very expensive IMO. Gluten free choices and knowledgeable server.

We wanted a special night out to celebrate a special occasion and our local Maui friends suggested Matteo’s. Wow, we see why! Everything was phenomenal, the catch of the day, our energetic and friendly server, all of the attentive and kind waitstaff, and of course...everything we treated to our maw. The Caesar was the best I’ve had, the beet salad was perfect, and our ISOLA entree’s (mine fresh catch Kanpachi from the big island, partner’s seared Ahi) was absolute perfection. It was so good, we bought my parents a gift card for their upcoming Maui trip next month. Definitely a great, special spot to go back to!More

Booked in advance due to pandemic and the reinstated restrictions to 50% capacity. Mai Tai was not worth the $15 and was pretty weak. Chicken Parmesan was awesome and did not disappoint. My fiancée had a dish that had black squid pasta and clams and...she liked it. Read the reviews about people being upset about the 80's to current music being played. Didn't bother us at all. Waiter was awesome and very friendly. Thanks for the great service Justin!More

We ate at Matteo's during recent visit to Wailea. We reserved well in advance and were promptly seated. This is a very busy restaurant but service was excellent and food promptly served. We had the saltimbocca and house-made lasagna. Both were excellent and enjoyed and...very reasonably prices (particularly compared to other venues we ate at in Wailea. Overall an excellent dining experience and highly recommend. Please ensure reservations well in advance.More

My wife and I made reservations over 3 weeks prior to arrival for our 35th Wedding Anniversary. We were very disappointed and surprised that we were seated at the bar. We discussed our displeasure with the Manager but he was not very helpful nor could...care less. He basically told us that there was nothing that he could do. He was very unprofessional and could care less about helping us out. I have never been treated this way and was a horrible way to be treated for our 35th Anniversary!!! I do not recommend having dinner at this restaurant. Take you business elsewhere!!!!!More

We dined at Matteo’s on our second night and could not have been happier. We ended up with Michael as our server and he was simply fantastic, he had a great sense of humour and took care of my wife and daughter beautifully, he went...out of his way to ensure everything was perfect. The food selection was excellent as was the wines available. We all tried something slightly different and compared each other’s dishes and they were all perfectly presented and prepared. We will definitely come back on our next visit.More

The wine list is really great. Literally the only restaurant I know with Sea Smoke Sea Spray on it. Also, Nickel and Nockel Chardonnay is wonderful. The chicken parm was average and the gnocchi were a bit heavy and didn’t have much flavor. We went...in with high expectations. The wine delivered, but the food was pretty average.More

While we first thought that the Menu was heavily tilted towards Autumn/ Winter items, the Beef Shank with grilled vegetables that I substituted polenta for the truffle mash potatoes was one of the finest dishes I have ever had. A large, tender Shank with no...grizzle or fat, excellent vegetables and a sauce that went exceptionally with the polenta. Would he highly recommend this dish.More
