Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We were blown away by our experience at di Matteos. We attended a relative's celebration & everything surpassed our expectations. The food was delicious and plentiful. Macy provided exceptional service, she was professional, attentive and made everyone feel welcome. We will be going back and...will be recommending di Matteo to everyone we know.More

We are locals who regular here for dinner. Dog friendly if you sit outside which is always a plus and BYO as well. The marinara and sumac squid are hands down the best! We also love the pizzas and arancini. The owner Stella is so...lovely and always welcoming and accomodating. We haven’t been for lunch or breakfast but dinner is always awesome.More

Great coffee and amazing service. You’ll instantly feel like a local thanks to the family feel at di matteos. Nice to see a local cafe supporting local people and business. The best place on the coast.

All the staff there are great. However, Stella, the owner is amazing, even though I only go here every month or so as I don't live in Forries, Stella knows my coffee order, my name and my kids names.

Stella & the crew are lovely, know everyones name and are always so welcoming and hospitable. Great coffee, always consistent, food is delicious and good value (Chilli Scramble is my fav), and night time pasta and pizza is incredible (squid ink linguini!)

Great place for meals, meetings or quick coffee catch ups. Food and coffee are both excellent and the night time tapas is a real favourite. Fabulous cocktails too. Authentic Italian flavours made with love make it extra special.

Entrees (crab sticks and arancini balls) and main (pizza) were nice! However the desert (sticky date) was a major let down. It was like it was a woolies brand that was barely warm with the smallest of serving of cream. Really spoilt the other meals....Service was good.More

Staff were very friendly, attentive and drinks arrived quickly. Something very very rare for a restaurant on the coast - great job team. Entree arrived quite quickly as well followed by mains. Again another tick! Entree was great and so was the pasta main. The...pizza on the other hand was a bit of a let down as the dough wasn’t great and the prosciutto was crispy which I found a little odd.More

Read lots of reviews before going to this place and sorry it didn't live up to it's reviews. The service was great but I would class the food as average. 3 out of 5 from me.
