Description: Matteo’s Osteria is Italian Soulfood in the heart of Wailea located at The Wailea Town Center. As the 2016 ‘Aipono Award winners for "Best Italian Restaurant on Maui," we invite you to savor our healthy, locally-sourced, homemade pastas, pizzette and entrées. Our traditional style comes from the influence of 2016 'Aipono Award-winning "Best Chef on Maui," Matteo Mistura, born and raised in Liguria, Italy. If you enjoy a truly unique family style dining experience, we ask you to come for our friendly, attentive staff and tour the world through a glass of wine with the largest wine selection by the glass in the State of Hawaii. After making a splash with a new approach to high end Italian cuisine when opening in December 2013, we have been winning awards and growing in popularity with visitors and locals alike. As part of this commitment to bring the best Italian cuisine possible to the island, we are going to focus our attention on dinner services, therefore closing for lunch.

Matteo's Osteria is what was missing from Wailea. The combination of the atmosphere, the service, the food and Matteo and his wife Giana are just outstanding but for the price it is hard to beat in Wailea. The Misto Salad (beet, fennel & fig) is unlike any taste experience you have ever had. The pizzas are excellent; how can you go wrong with the Maui - beef tenderloin with a cherry wine reduction drizzled on top. The pumpkin ravioli is to die for and his Beef dish is as good as it gets - better than Ruth's Chris. Specials every day are amazing and quite unusual. What's not to love? Not much if anything. This is a place not to be missed. Oh, and the Tiramisu; I don't even care for Tiramisu but I ate ever speck of it and wanted more. GO! RUN! Don't stop until you reach Matteo's Osteria and just enjoy the experience. I promise you won't be disappointed. Love, love this place and thank you Matteo and Giana for returning to Maui from your beloved Italy.

I love the fancy Wailea resort restaurants but had grown tired of "fancy eating". Matteo's is located in a small shopping plaza near the Wailea tennis courts. We all had pizza and very much enjoyed the food. Our server was wonderful but very busy. It seemed they were still working out the service kinks as some staff seemed aimless and our server was worked off her feet. Our other complaint was that all outside tables were reserved so they sat empty while we sat in the hot interior. The food was great but be wary of varying service.

Since we were not very hungry, unfortunately we shared only one starter, griglia, which was excellent. Thereafter two of us had a pizette and they lived it. We also had the linguine and fettuccine. They were to die for. Homemade pasta cookef perfectly al dente. Also the tiramisu was great. Be careful however when you order wine by the glass. The list shows 3oz and 6oz prices. Apparently only people from the US and Canada know that 3oz is a half glass. We ended up paying almost the price of a bottle for just 3 glasses. So you know.

Yum, yum AND yum! We stopped at Matteo's Osteria for lunch today and we're so glad we did... my man had the fish sandwich special and I had the Super foods salad. I asked for the dressing on the side as I really don't use it but I did end up using the dip they serve with the Italian bread at the table. It was awesome! I had 2 helpings in fact! Try it out... I'm not telling!

Fresh and innovative....a great place for lunch, happy hour, or dinner. Also this restaurant has very reasonable prices compared to the rest of Wailea...a much better value here.
