Description: We were directed to the Osteria Mat (or Matt) by the owner of Hotel la Villa. It was in a passageway located in a 400 year old building. We sat on a rooftop terrace and it was Magical! And the food was great. I would like to review it

We stayed in Gravedona and ate twice at the restaurant once inside and upstairs on the terrace. The food was well cooked and presented. The restaurant is a little more expensive than others but there was a reasonable choice of wines. My wife's mushroom risotto was delicious as was her pasta dish as a vegetarian option and I had the... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. Food was good, some dishes better than others. Pasta was excellent. Wine was superb, they had some great recommendations. We dined on the terrace which was very quaint and charming.

We went for dinner here on recommendation from our hotel owner who also made the reservation for us. I shared a full dinner with two bottles of wine followed by grappa and a limoncello on the house with my girlfriend. We shared the mixed seafood platter and a goat cheese salad for appetizers, followed by steak and a tuna steak... More

With its many levels and rooms in a beautiful old building this restaurant has a very special ambience. Food is excellent with great taste and great presentation. Great mixed seafood starter and great Pasta. Steak is good but not fantastic. We would gladly go again.

I have recently eaten in this restaurant .Because I am very fond of fish,I ordered local fish. It was raw inside and not cooked well,but the rice was cooked too much. I think that the fish was frozen,It tasted like it has been stored in a fridge for some days. My wife had "lavarello" ,but it didn't have any taste... More

We went here a couple of nights whilst in Gravedona. The restaurant is very old and has atmosphere. Food was good but I found the main courses a little lacking. The fillet steak comes with just a small amount of veg and would benefit from some form of potato. Wine selection very good. Would give this place a try if... More

I went here with my mum on the last night of our holiday after reading the latest review on here. I wish I'd gone to the pizzeria next door! We didn't book and ended up stuck in the basement which I agree is our fault but I just felt a bit let down. I had the fish from the starter... More

It's always true the common saying that the harder is a restaurant to find the better is the food! This is valid for the "ca de matt", located in a narrow and old street in Gravedona that brings you back into the past ages, so that you can eat tasty food in a very evocative place. I ate a "misto... More

Delicious and very kind staff. Great variety of Italian specialities (including fish from the lake, ...). The risotto is splendid. Don't forget the tiramisu... There is a very nice terrace. Its a 2 min walk from the lake.
