On a rainy day it was amazing to enter this beautiful restaurant. The restaurant was in fact closed, but we were, due to the rainy day, welcomed. Thank you so much for this hospitality to Giuseppe and Laura.

Thank Jørgen B

We met Giuseppe when looking for M.A.T.E.S because of the good reviews. He opened for lunch just for us. He then served wonderful food. Altogether a marvellous experience.

This restaurant was recommended by one of the staff at Verdura Resort and we were so happy that he did. We knew that we were not going to get a menu, that it was multiple courses that we were going to be served and we thought, why not? We were at an Italian restaurant that was going to serve us homemade Italian food! No menu, no problem! We were greeted by one of the 2 brothers that worked as waiters there. Papa was in the front of the restaurant and mamma was cooking out back. The brother that greeted us had to leave shortly after we arrived, so his brother Guiseppe continued as our waiter. Great guy, spoke very good English, was funny and engaging and just kept coming out with course after course of great food. First was the antipasto, which included typical Italian ingredients of olives, eggplant, artichoke, mushrooms, pepperoncini, cured meats, and cheeses. Next course was an egg frittata, then Risotto, then a pasta dish, then pork, then sliced potatoes, then a roast beef, and finally cannolis! Wow, wow, wow. Everything was scrumptious. And the portions were perfect. Nothing was left over. I had a carafe of wine with the meal and the whole thing for the 2 of us came to $60, tip included!! Incredible.

Make sure to make a reservation as this place fills up fast. Several courses are served & always fresh pasta. I am a vegetarian & I did not have a problem. Vegan would have to watch the cheese. The last course is a meat dish but by that time one is already very full. This is a family owned restaurant & they do a superb job....food, service, atmosphere.
