Had a wonderful meal this lunchtime. It's a fantastic place to go for a celebration or just a nice look out.

After looking at the week day lunchtime menus we will be going back more often great choice for bargain prices.

Highly recommended for friendly atmosphere, good service and great food.

Before visiting Seaton Carew we booked a table at Matteo's based on the reviews here. We were not disappointed!

The staff were very friendly and the food was amazing!

Plenty to eat for vegetarians and carnivores alike.

So far we've had the creamy mushrooms (fungi chef), potato skins, calamari starters, mushroom pizza, ham calzone, chicken breast with cheese and bacon and followed all that with fudge cake, ice cream and chocolate fudge cheesecake!!

Have booked in for several more visits including afternoon tea on Friday

We called here whilst visiting family on the recommendation of our daughter. We booked for a lunch time for 5 of us.

I was surprised to find a 2 course lunch time special for only £4.95 per person.

At that price I was expecting reduced portions but this was far from the truth.

The menu choice was good. I chose Minestrone Soup for my starter and Smoked Bacon Carbonara for my main course. I wasn't disappointed with either. Other members of the party had Garlic Mushrooms, Garlic Bread and Potato Skins for starters and Pizza's for their mains. They even did a Mushroom starter and a Smoked Bacon Carbonara without garlic for my daughter. The portions were very good and the quality excellent.

All the staff were friendly and nothing was too much trouble.

Looking at the menu, they also did an early bird menu between 5 and 7pm with a very reasonable price tag of £8.95 for 3 courses. A La Carte prices were also reasonable.

The total bill for 5 of us with soft drinks was around £35.

It was well worth the short journey from Stockton an Tees to dine here and we will certainly call again when we are in this area.

Wow!!! Amazing food, friendly and attentive service, competitively priced. I really couldn’t ask for more... Yet these guys somehow bring more!

I travel a lot for my job and as a result I eat in a lot of restaurants all over the World. This is one of my favourites... Anywhere. I’d travel back to Seaton just to eat here again.

Grazie mille! Or as we say in Wales: Diolch yn fawr iawn!

Amazing food and service!

My husband and I recently visited Matteo’s for a meal and it was gorgeous. We have ate at Matteo’s numerous times and always had amazing food with fantastic service. Amr and his staff are all so welcoming and always make us feel at home. The location is perfect overlooking the sea. We can’t wait to visit again - thank you!

What an absolute amazing experience. We had the afternoon tea and wow! The sizes were perfect, so much so we’ve had to take a doggie bag home!! Everything was so tasty! I highly recommend the afternoon tea. You have to allow 48 hours notice but definitely worth the organisation. The service was spot on, always making sure we had enough to drink and if we were enjoying our food. Even the chef came out to make sure! 10/10!
