The seafood was so delicious I wanted to dance. I had the raw red shrimps and an oyster as starters, the lobster with cherry tomatoes as main course, and the red wine ice-cream to finish off the meal. It was all very fresh delicious. I loved everything and fully enjoyed every moment of the meal. I didn't make a reservation... More

I wanted to love Matermatuta, I really did. I made reservations before we even arrived in Rome after reading reviews on tripadvisor. I was looking for something romantic for my husband and I with solid food. The ambiance I would not call romantic -- it's nice, modern, clean. But seemed a bit generic, no low lighting, etc. The food --... More

Walkimg the streets of Rome, slighlty off the beaten track by 5 mins from the main street. Just walked in and tried our luck, it was busy but we got a table. The food was to die for and reasonable. Great wine selection and professional friendly service. We are going back on Monday for more, love this place!!!

Booked a table late in the afternoon (on a Tuesday) with my girlfriend. Food was epic, service was very friendly and efficient and the atmosphere was perfect. My favorite was the main lobster while my girlfriend's was the entrees of beef tarter and scallops with bacon. Worth the 5 stars, would recommend to all!

Easily made a reservation through the Trip Advisor App. (Highly recommend!) We were early diners and had the second room all to ourselves for much of dinner, though the action is clearly in the main room. We were eager for some of their specialties, so the server suggested letting the chef prepare several appetizer selections for us, which they brought... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for our anniversary dinner. I'm glad we gave it a try. The staff is so attentive and friendly. I've never been treated so well at a restaurant. Food was tasty, and the ambience was nice. Great price for the experience. Would definitely recommend this restaurant.
