Enjoyed the food at this busy family style restaurant. Baked Clams and White Clam Sauce were the best. Service was excellent. My wife and I have been Mateos fans since our first visit. Love the veal chop Mateos with tomatoes & basil. If you're going for the first time note: most small portions will serve two people.

Enter with caution as this restaurant over feeds you. It is an experience, a feast of great food and excellent service. A reservation is advised. A family place with many tables seating an average of 12 people and more. Grandparents, parents and children all talking and enjoying each other and the food. Don't worry if you can't finish, they will box it up. Another great place to eat veal.

We have visited Matteo's in Hallandale, Fl once a year for the past 6 years and have eaten inside and have had no complaints. This year we ended up eating outside and were disappointed at once that in FL it seems that smokers can smoke in the dining area if it's outdoors, even in a fairly enclosed space (awning and perimeter barriers). The view is of a fairly busy shopping center and parking lot with lots of traffic, even huge trucks that were so loud no one could speak until the truck had driven by. First items put on the table by one waiter were empty glasses for our water. My glass was so filthy, it looked like someone had just had a glass of Coke in it and it wasn't even rinsed out! Once another waiter finally got around to bringing out the water to pour I pointed out the dirty glass and he didn't apologize, just frowned and ran away. Bread was not brought to the table until the entrees arrived. The food, all in all, was enjoyable, but we felt their eggplant parmesan was a little overloaded with cheese this year. When my capellini marinara arrived it did not come with a twirling spoon, I asked for one, the waiter almost threw it on the table and, amazingly, it was filthy with chunks of food stuck to the back. We ordered a brownie sundae for dessert to share. Another waiter we had not seen yet brought it out from the kitchen and tossed it on the table, he really did toss it!!! And to top it off it was incomplete, no chocolate sauce. Yet another waiter took it away in a pissed off attitude and brought it back with a grunt. Of the 4-5 waiters we experienced none of them smiled, looked us in the eye or made us feel welcome. When the check came and we saw that an 18% gratuity had already been figured into our total we were not pleased. If we are expected to pay 18% gratuity then we expect to get better than a 0% effort on service. We will never go back and I encourage anyone that appreciates good service to stay away!
