Revisited Matteo's for date night with hubby. We thought this place was brilliant when we first visited in Nov 2016, and could not get much better. Well it did 2nd time round was amazing! The food was complex and sophisticated yet subtly delicious. Great selection of in season produce cooked to perfection. And the most amazing desserts to cap it off. Added with the largest wine menu I've ever seen. A beautiful place for a romantic dinner. Staff are magnificent too.

We have been dining at Matteo's for more than 20 years and have never had anything less than top class food and service.
The truffle pasta at this time of year is to die for.

I tried Matteo's lazy Sunday menu with a group of friends. From starters to mains and desserts, everything was delicious. I most enjoyed the starters and the platter of three desserts served.

The ambience was stylish but laid back at the same time making this a perfect dining option for a Sunday. Waitstaff was extremely courteous and willing to adjust the set menu for our dietary requirements. We were never rushed.

All in all we had a great time and as promised experienced a perfect lazy Sunday lunch. Well done team!

What a charmer Matteo's continues to be with excellent relaxed service, inventive cuisine and comfortable club like surroundings. Each plate is a masterpiece worthy of a place at the NGV. The entrees are a standout, each exquisitely plated and each one full of fabulous flavours and visual excitement. The only thing I would suggest is that main courses actually come with some vegetables rather than the guests having to purchase 2 or 3 side orders to fill the gap. I realise that it has been fashionable for years to serve mains the European way of "add ons" or ordering individual additional serves but it would be good to see more restaurants providing a more balanced meal without the guests having to pay much more for their main courses.

We went with another couple that had been before but that was 20 years ago. What a great night, food was amazing. Service was fantastic. You can see why they have stood the test of time. Keep up that quality and they will be still there in another 20 years.
