Went there a while back - waited 1 hour for a pizza, it was cold and the cheese was hard, didn't eat but when we complained they still made us pay for 2 sodas. Never again!

Their sauce tastes like authentic Northern Italian type, which is delicious. The use truly fresh ingredients on pizzas, grinders, and in dinner choices and are reasonably priced. The gelato for dessert is to die for - I get takeout there at least twice a month on a Friday on the way home from work; best way to end a hectic... More

We have been going to DiMatteo's for over 30 years. Always welcoming. Terrific for take out or dining in. Pizza is always crisp, hot and tasty. Italian standards like veal parm are better than average at a totally fair price.

The pizza and Italian food is delicious. I would say one of the best restaurants for pizza in the area. Yummy sauce, delicious toppings, friendly service and a clean cozy dining area. An excellent place to share a slice or two.

Di Matteo's is a pizzaria with a full restaurant. We like the pizza--it is a good example of the "New Haven style" pizza available throughout Hamden and the whole New Haven area. We've always found the ingredients to be fresh and the crust to be well baked. We usually do take out, but don't forget that Di Matteo's is also... More

The menu has a wide range from pizza to chicken to fresh salads. The portions are large. The food was really good. The service was a little slow and the atmosphere is rather austere so that's where the stars came off. There's a gelato bar in front that has real Italian gelato. I would eat here again.

I've been going to this place for years. The pizza is fine. I recently had a sub (meatball & eggplant) that was delicious. A family member had the salmon over salad ... Looked good. This is a great place to get a quick pizza or sub. Wait staff was attentive.

DiMatteo's is an institution in Hamden. The locals seem to love it. The Pizza is great, on the pricy side. They also have square Sicilian Pizza that has a thicker crust, also great. The place burned down to the ground several years ago and I haven't eaten there since then. They have a nice dining room (nothing fancy) mostly booths.... More

Great place to eat. Limited menu but everything on it is good. The prices are great for the quality of food. Dine in or carry out, excellent service every time.
