Service was terrible. Place was disorganized, loud in an annoying way and so ordinary. Do yourself a favor and find another Italian place if you want "real" peasant Italian food. I ordered Chicken Parm and it was horrible, chewy with a distinct taste of burnt breadcrumbs. The tomato sauce was bland and tasted more like tomato juice, salad had brown... More

I read some of the previous poor reviews and my opinion is they don't know what good Italian food is all about. We had a great dinner starting with baked clams, fried zucchini and roasted peppers and onions. It was the best. Tasty and properly cooked. Our main dishes were family style, Chicken Scapriello , Shrimp Oreganato and linguine with... More

We were told this was a terrific place for dinner. We were no impressed. It is costly and structured so you order more than necessary. Strictly a la carte. My linguini with clams was poor. Chopped clams. You are better off with the meat options. Salad was good. Service was very good and the upscale setting appropriate. The food needs... More

The food quality ranges from good to very good, as does the service. Depends on the night. Portions are large - family style, and can be comfortably shared. Plenty of parking right in front. The ambient noise is somewhat loud for a business event.

Prices are extremely high for large portions of Italian American food. They are always very busy, attracting a large group of New York, New Joisey, LongIslanders with an average age pf 80 or so. Poorly thought out wine list.

First visit to this homely traditional Italian restaurant. Food was lovely and enormous portions. Sharing is a must We had zucchini as a starter which was delicious Veal Milanese melted in your mouth and we ordered spaghetti bolognese to go with. We ended up taking untouched one home Seafood linguini was delicious too. I had a gin and tonic which... More

Went here several years ago and didn't enjoy. Decided to give it another try and was pleasantly surprised. It was early New Year's Eve so I wasn't surprised that we were seated 10 minutes later than our reservation but from then on our experience was delightful. Food and service were excellent, Portions (ordered the smaller ones) were enormous so we... More

Went to the restaurant about a week ago, sat outside --- 5 of us. When we arrived there was one other family just finishing their meal. Shortly after we arrived about half of the outside filled up. The waiter took our drink order, we did not purchase alcohol, not sure if that was why we were ignored, or if it... More

Matteo's in Hallandale has gone down hill. The calamari appetizer was brought fried instead of sauteed. The pork chop, burnt brussell sprouts, meatball and sausage dish were all luke warm. After an hour and a half we were told that there was no gnocci left for our pasta dish. The managers came over and virtually said nothing, and nothing was... More

This restaurant is busy and noisy, with tables placed too close together. All the dishes ordered came in huge size portions, and the waiters immediately offered to plate it for sharing. Unfortunately, every dish was also very disappointing. The veal was bland, the sautéed calamari served with a commercialy tasting red sauce that completely overpowered their flavor, the anti pasti...
