I have visited this restaurant several times in the past - always with good comments. Last night.....well, not as good. My wife had the perch where the breading was doughie compared to previous visits. I had a Chicken Parm that was cooked well, but had a very pungent aftertaste that I just couldn't place. At first I wondered if it... More

Food is good if not great and the service is always prompt. Italian dishes are good. Last time we dined there, Lasagna, and Chicken Salad entre, and drinks were $33.

This place is a family restaurant with a very homey feel. Spacious, but has a private feel, and not noisy at all. The food is very reasonable and good. I had the baked Mosticiolli with meat sauce. The portios are large, it comes with an Italian Chili (or a salad). The chili was excellent. My wife had the perch. Even... More

I had gotten a gift card for the restaurant, and was worried after reading the reviews. We arrived to find a clean restaurant, and very kind staff. We were seated quickly, and food was brought to our table in a timely manner. The pizza was wonderful as was the garlic bread. We look forward to coming back for pizza and... More

Pizza is fantastic. Other food is pretty average. Nothing to really write home about, but isn't terrible. I go across town for the pizza though!

This is our third Friday fish fry with Matteo's. First one was AWESOME, fresh, moist fish, enough for two adults to have two full meals. Wonderful potato pancakes, plentiful french fries. Second carry out fish fry, didn't have enough fish to feed a person. Thought we would give it one more try tonight, BIG MISTAKE. $36 For 4 shrimp, 1... More

We chose to eat here because we were using a coupon from the Entertainment book. We were greeted and and asked if we would like to be seated by the fireplace. Since is was a little cool inside we thought that would be nice. It took a bit for our server to come but once she did, she was very... More

Lived in Waukesha for 10 years and never ate at this place due to hearing many negative comments by friends and neighbors. Finally decided to see for myself and that was a mistake. Ordered 2 items, Chicken Penne and Chicken Parmesan. As other reviewers have mentioned, the chicken was frozen. It is bland and dry. The pasta itself was hard,... More

This was the third time I'd been to Matteo's; the other times were quite good, this time not-so-much. The baked penne had too many "crunchy" pieces. The raspberry iced tea was too syrupy. Cheesebread and pizza were good though. I will try it again in hopes that this time was a fluke.
