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.

We went here on the recommendation of the hotel staff. We had a nice meal but the staff's English wasn't that good, hence I got the prawn starter rather than the scampi. I had the rolled sea bass which was fine but maybe a little over cooked. My wife had the sea food ravioli which was the best. We were... More

Mallamaci Tours had another amazing meal at Matermatuta! We were a party of 12. Decor is very stylish & modern, service is at a perfectly calm pace (give yourself at least 2-1/2 hours to enjoy the food & vino) Food is elegantly prepared with outrageous taste. A must for a unique dinning experience ! Stefano & Valentino are a match... More

A fantastic little gem with cool friendly but discreet staff and a stylish decor . Excellent seafood and lots of quirky serving dishes- never knew what to expect next. Excellent very well priced wine list. Not great for big groups but great for couples! Will be back!

Visited the restaurant on the recommendation from the hotel. The starters were fantastic, the fried calamari was superb. But the main courses were very disappointing! Both the monkfish and the seabass were in our views overdone. Adding too much citrus and Caedmon and spices to the fish, killed the taste of it. When ordering fish, the fish taste should be... More
