Was visiting Melbourne for a tasting weekend and looking for a place for Friday lunch. Discovered Matteo which turned out to be great choice. The Express Lunch is excellent value. My fish of the day was cod in a curry laksa sauce was very well prepared with loads of flavour. The desserts were terrific and the apple tart certainly wowed... More

The décor of the front dining room at Matteo’s has some old fashioned charm to it, difficult to find in restaurants in Melbourne, perfect for a lovely dinner. The food is delicious, perfectly prepared and presented. The wine list is excellent. The service was first rate. Highly recommended.

For years I have been trying to get to Matteos and finally last Saturday night I made it with friends. We arrived early having seen an early show and ordered cocktails to start. Shortly after we were asked whether we were ready to order. We chose the tasting menu to boost the experience. The first cocktail came out and then... More

This is the place to go for a special meal. Hands down one of the best. Always delicious meals, great service and warm comfortable atmosphere. Every dish ever has been a winner. Don't think twice just book here and you will be happy. Beware prices match the quality.

Not sure what stands out most for a visit to Matteo's. Is it the beautiful and elegantly presented food or the exceptional service by the waiting staff? We enjoyed an Express Lunch on Valentines Day and could not have enjoyed this special treat more. Always feel a little more special when it's a mid-week lunch while everyone else is working... More

I booked as it was an anniversary usually just turn up during the week hoping for the best unless with my son and he books. Couldn't be happier. They make you feel relaxed. Not stuffed shirts but they like to explain what is on your plate, not that I remembered it all while I was eating hence the menu items... More

I haven't been back to Matteo's in a number of years but I'm glad to be back. I had a work christmas function here and the food was delicious. It might be a small thing for other people but I always like a restaurant which serves endless bread and butter, its like being in Europe. I never understand restaurants which... More

Matteo's has consistently shown to be one of the best priced top shelf dining experiences in Melbourne. I just can't get enough of this place....superb staff and the most imaginative dishes that always surprise my jaded taste buds along with an excellent wine list and a few carefully selected craft beers. A perfect example of Melbourne's best dining experiences.
