    Another fabulous dinner at Mattone's. As always, the lasagna was excellent and the veal cutlets were fantastic. The desserts (made in-house) were wonderful: gelato and crème brûlée. We will be back.

    The restaurant is just exceptional. Their lasagna -- their speciality -- is sublime. I can't necessarily describe why, it's just so good. We split the arugula salad and it's hard to imagine a simple salad being exceptional, but it was too. I think it's the dressing. Finally, we had the lemon cheesecake for dessert and it was so creamy. Just better than the cheesecake I've had in nearly every other restaurant. Highly recommend this East Sacramento neighborhood favorite.

    Mattone was exceptional in every way. The service, wine, and multi courses all were homeruns. Cannot stress how darn good everything was. I had the lasagne and my fiancé had the grilled chicken, both a treat to our senses. 100% would recommend to anyone looking for a special night out with culinary excellence at the forefront.

    The service was great. The lasagna was great. The spaghetti carbonara was disappointing though. Value was good. We will go back, but next time will get the gnocchi instead of the spaghetti carbonara.

    Biba would be happy. The food is wonderful but the menu is limited. The calamari is the best in town and probably in the country, the sauce on my petrale sole was amazing, the ravioli were heavenly, the salad was crisp and fresh and properly dressed, the red sauce on the pasta was somewhat bland. The prices here are a tad high especially for lunch. We were particularly annoyed that there is a $3 charge for a bread/breadstick basket; it seems inappropriate given the prices and somewhat disrespectful to the guests. It stuck out as a kind of gouging. The building is the old Espanol and it is hard to disguise that as it has the same acoustic problem so it’s loud. The service is attentive and low key. Mattone will continue to be on my restaurant rotation but I will bring my own breadsticks! Biba had glasses of them everywhere!

    This is one of our favorite places. It is easy to like the team and the owner, they are terrific and make your visit a special experience. And the food is EXCELLENT. We had a friend along who is a vegan diner and they made a terrific off-menu dish for him. If you aren't going to Mattone you are missing out!!

    We had the brick chicken, and each of us had their different salads. The food was so bland. They charged for the bread basket. I was expecting a real Italian taste experience and was disappointed. Just so bland. The service, however, was excellent. Thevrestaurant is cute. Given my disappointment with the cuisine, I can only give an ok rating.

    Having eaten at the former Biba’s restaurant, I was so excited to try Mattone’s. As a group of six, we were able to try a multitude of dishes. Overall, we were very underwhelmed. We started with cocktails and mock-tails both of which were excessively sweet. I was excited to see the ricotta gnocchi on the menu, which I remember fondly from Biba‘s. Sadly, there was no similarity. There was none of the moist creaminess. They were almost gritty. We tried the poached pear with Parmesan gelato which was more like cream cheese. A very strange flavor combination. One entrée had so much cracked pepper over the top it was almost inedible and the sauce on the veal was similar to brown gravy with none of the nuance one would expect at a fine restaurant. The veal was lost underneath such a sauce. In contrast, the Branzino had no sauce over the fish. While the fish was well cooked it would’ve benefited from a light wine sauce, or even some fresh lemon. The accompanying carrots were glazed with an overwhelmingly sweetened orange sauce. In contrast, the brussels sprouts had no sauce or seasoning. The steak was well prepared and so was the spaghetti carbonara. We enjoyed several of the desserts, although two of the diners felt they were overly sweet. The restaurant was packed on a Friday night and service was incredibly slow. We did not receive our first course for approximately 40 minutes. After our starters we were told several times that our main course would be out “in one minute”. That one minute kept reoccurring over the next half hour. At the end of the meal as we paid the bill, we were surprised to discover that there was a mandatory 20% service included. Normally I tip 20% and sometimes more for good food and service, but I would like the discretion to change the amount based upon the service received. None of us felt that we received either good food or good service this evening. A quick poll after dinner and zero of six of us would return.  Biba would be sad.

    The food and ambience were excellent as well as the service. I will say that the appetizers based on the number of pieces that you get in the appetizer are a little expensive, but they were very tasty. I would definitely visit again. I had the veal. It was excellent. My friend had the lamb chops, and they were excellent as well.

    Have hosted and attended birthday dinners at Mattone’s, and each event was spectacular and special! Service is spot on, and quality of food is five stars! Menu meets everyone’s taste palate, and servings are generous. Mattone’s provides an intimate, inviting setting where you can actually engage in conversation. Mattone’s lasagne and tiramisu are among many favorites!
