What a nice surprise !!! My husband and I had dined here years ago and were then disappointed with both the service and the cuisine. A recent online Coupon offer was so generous, however, that to the then dismay of my husband, I opted to give this eatery another try. We are BOTH so glad I did!. There was not a single element of our experience I would change. Although I was at first frustrated that there were no tables available (necessitating our being seated at the bar), this turned out to to be ideal as there is only seating for maybe 6 so we engaged in an enjoyable conversation with another couple seated across from us as well as Shannon who was bar-tending that night. Shannon "rocks!" She serves a dual role at the restaurant, rotating as a server or a bar-tender depending on the establishment's needs for the night. I would highly recommend her!! ...and the food!!! We visited Italy last year so we know "authentic." years ago, I would not have drawn this conclusion about Matteo's but this time, yes, I can see ( or rather taste) authentic. My hubby ordered 4 Cheese Chicken as his entree and I ordered the seafood platter with red sauce and both were delish. Possibly the best of everything, though, was the tiramisu which is definitely meant to be shared. Wow!!! Another nice thing about Matteo's is it's location. It sits on the Historic City Square and there are some neat shops in the immediate area.Check out " The Wild" which is a terrific locally owned book and toy store! Charming feel to the town. Sooooo worth the drive from Indy which was for us over 45 minutes.
