Wanted to try Matteo's since opening up in the new location. It has been open awhile. The staff is friendly and professional. The décor is nice and relaxing. I knew the prices for some of the entrees were a bit high, but we took advantage of a special they had.

The salad and house bread were excellent. We had the Kula greens with butternut squash, goat cheese & candied pecans. We both had lasagna and it was good, but I like more sauce. The flavor was that of mostly meat & cheese. We both had dessert, one cannoli and one ice cream with espresso poured over.

We may go back, but would try a different entrée. It is really hard for me to spend $25 for one lasagna. I realize the pasta house made.

My wife and I went to Matteo's earlier this week based on the recommendation of the Fairmont Kea Lani. The food was fantastic and the service by Russell was outstanding. The overall experience was so good we booked another dinner for the following night. We know and love Italian food and everything we ordered was excellent. Cannot say enough about the service experience with Russell. He is a true professional that knows how to connect with guests while going about his craft with genuine joy and passion. Whenever we are in Maui we will be sure to join Russell and enjoy Matteo's amazing food. Thank you to the team at Matteo's Osteria.

Matteo's Osteria is located in a non-descript business park off of Wailea Ike Drive in Wailea. They have indoor and outdoor seating and reservations are recommended although when we were there they were probably not needed.

The menu has some of the standard fare for Italian restaurants plus a bunch of locally contrived specials. Even the standard fare menu items were made from home made pasta. The wine menu is something to be admired. Not only did they have an incredible selection of wine by the bottle but probably the biggest wine by the glass that I have ever seen in a restaurant.

I had started with the Caprese Salad followed by Lasagna and she had an Arugula Salad followed by one of the two fish specials that were offered that evening. Everything was absolutely incredible. The service was out of this world as well. We skipped dessert.

This is definitely a gem to check out. If possible, try to get seating on the covered patio.

Our last night in Wailea and we were craving Italian. Made reservations at Ferraro's but had a last minute cancellation because of rain. We were super bummed out but was happy to try Matteo's. We shared the beet salad & it was pretty good! We ordered the lasagne & also the bolognese with pappardelle. My bolognese was salty and didn't have much flavor. My boyfriend didn't finish his lasagna and it wasn't that big. It was a nice size. We split a bottle of Pinot that we both didn't like, but felt awkward to return. Food was bunk. I guess that happens when you stare at the menu at Ferraros for so long and then had to settle for mediocre Italian somewhere else.

We had dinner here last week and the homemade pasta and bread were superb! The gnocchi was light and delicious. Great service and resasnable prices. The ahi pasta was memorable.
