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.

Beautiful food, great service and a truly marvellous Melbourne dining experience with the trams rattling by in Brunswick Street. We had the Buddha Lo's tasting menu, a set menu of five courses.The oyster shot with mirin was good. The mushroom wonton tortellini was especially memorable with fresh peas and a delicate, fluffy, truffle sauce. The Vacherin dessert was excellent .... More

Every time I need a 'go to' classy restaurant for business or couple that you know will be reliable and consistent and deliver the class required, this is the one. The atmosphere is comfortable and the service understated but good. The menu continues to change enough to keep things interesting for repeat visits.
