Our trips to Melbourne tend to have a food focus and after reading reviews and with melbournian friends mention matteos as there special annual anniversary dinner location we thought we'd give it a try. We went for the a la carte option and ordered the quail and prawn ravioli both of which were lovely and very enoyable. We followed this... More

Made a reservation for a special occasion. This was our first visit and everything was perfect. The Ambiance, the service and the food was exceptional. The a la carte menu had a good choice. Acknowledgment by the waiters for the birthday, was nice. We weren't just another table, having dinner.

This was a return visit to Matteo's and it again scored highly with us. It was surprisingly empty when we had lunch there yesterday but still exuded class and professionalism in both service and meal preparation and presentation. We opted for the $49 Express Lunch menu - choice of three entrees and four mains - for entrees we chose the... More

We havent been here for a long time and were delighted to find that the food and service was still wonderful. The menu offered for restaurant express week was generous, representing amazing value. We will be back and look forward to another great meal.

We have been to Matteo's several times and have had great meals. The last experience was extremely disappointing with my main course consisting of 4 pieces of gnocchi and a dessertspoon of confit duck. It looked more like an entree than main course! If I hadn't been dining with a large group of friends, I would have sent it back... More

3 of us dined at Matteo's for lunch and I was strangely disappointed. They have had a change of chef since our last visit and we were very keen to try some vegetarian dishes. The food was 'nice' but it didn't have that edge that we are looking for in contemporary food. Had some friendly and professional waiters but it... More
