I used to frequent this restaurant a lot. I recently returned for the first time in a while and was disappointed. The menu seemed a lot smaller and while some of the old dishes were still offered, some in our group could not find anything to order. Nothing about the restaurant or menu would encourage us to return. Service was... More

Old school ambience went there not really expecting food to be that good but surprised by quality of all I ordered. Filet mignon the best cooked and best cut the veggie lasagna heaven the terrific pear tart and most importantly the coffee just regular awesome.

Matteo's claim to fame is that Frank Sinatra, in his heyday, frequented the restaurant. The restaurant feels like it's been living off that fame ever since; the food's overpriced, the decor is outdated, and there's really not much else to say about it.

Matteos is overrated and mediocre/average cuisine. For the price point they could do better. Seriously, there are better Italian Restaurants in Los Angeles. Think twice before coming here...

I came here last night with some business colleagues for dinner after working all day. When I got here I was very excited as I really like old school places. From what I heard Frank Sinatra and many other celebrities used to frequent this place. We were seated privately in the wine room and it was a very comfortable room... More

Valet parking is available.The restaurant was only about half full. The food was excellent, the service polite and professional , however the wines were quite expensive.My disappointment with the restaurant was... More

It's a shame when a place I used to enjoy and go to several times a month becomes a thing of the past. It's day has come and gone. We experienced a drab, dull, dead, dark and musty/ old smelling place as we truly wanted to revisit my fond memories. Granted it was a bit early and the place was... More

This was my first visit, but my wife used to come here as a child over 30 years ago. It's completely "old school" in almost every way. Many people may not know but it was sold 14 years ago and their is a new chef, so the menu has been updated. I was expecting an old school experience all the... More

My family has been coming to Matteo's for years and love it. It's a comfortable place to sit in big leather booths where everyone can hear each other talk. The setting is classy, as the Rat Pack used to come here regularly in their day. We came here on this last occasion to celebrate my father's 85th birthday in a... More
