Best bread side EVER!.
Along with of couse the obvious great food and great atmosphere Matteo's shows its above and beyond as soon as you get your bread. Along with each basket of bread comes this delicious grilled eggplant. It has pepers and oil on it and it is SO GOOD. I go there just for that some times!
This restaurant was a sheet delight! It is wonderful to find a REAL restaurant, not a chain, not a third generation Italian "chef" this place is an authentic experience. The chef is from Southern Italy and moved here in the last few years...and the food shows it. I had a wonderful chicken dish with mozzarella cheese and prosciutto ham, the soup and bread was homemade and the wine was perfectly paired by the waiter. If you want to be treated right, eat well and enjoy your night out you need to give Matteo's a try. The ambiance is lovely and the food is even better. I am going again next weekend!
