After traveling through Argentina and experiencing many fantastic meals of grilled meat, all we wanted tonight was a simple salad and plate of pasta. We ventured into the fantastic energy of Palermo neighborhood. The bartender at Mezcal served us great drinks a when we asked about the best Italian restaurant he immediately said Il Matterello. He was so right! It... More

I'd wanted to visit San Marino for some time now, but got the impression that the city of San Marino would likely be full of touristy restaurants so when I saw mention of Il Matterello, I thought it sounded pretty great. And it did not disappoint! I was a bit nervous walking in as the small restaurant was packed and... More

It's a very nice and cosy place, not very big and not at all touristy. It's a place for locals.The waitress was very friendly, the food was delicious. We could watch how they prepared our meal, because the kitchen is behind the counter where you order the food. It felt like home. We had a roastbeef piadini for 6 EUR... More

We all enjoyed this food. I had the "Terminator" which was really filling. To be honest I could have shared with someone else. My son said was his best meal in Italy. Worth going to if you go to San Marino. Enjoy!

The food here was very delicious! And it was very cheap. We paid around 5 euro for a meal each person. It was good as a quick lunch, but I wouldn't recommend it for dinner. The chef tried to be very helpful, even though he spoke poor English. All in all, a good experience.

Friendly chef who although not fluent in English, did his best, with patience, to guide us to a delicious meal. Note that this is fast food, not a fancy dinner. A meal for 6€ will get you full.

We've read some reviews that presuaded us to try and we have never been happier to follow the advice! We had a really satisfying dinner. There is a big variety of piadina to choose from. The...
