Very good Italian food and wine and good service. The price was reasonable and it was just down the street from our hotel.

I had the carpaccio di manzo as the appetizer and manicotti ricotta e spinach for the entree. They were absolutely delcious! The furniture was tasteful and the ambiance was comforting. If you are looking for a great Italian restaurant, i highly recommend Matto😊

Il Matto has a great reputation and it again did not disappoint. We ordrered Calamari fritti for starters. Had linguine frutti di mare for seconds. Concluded with amaretto tartufo. Food and service was excellent! Do not forget to reserve due to popularity.
