From the drinks I tried the Belucci, it was done with fresh blueberries & blackberries, violet, basil, lime juice and sparkling water. It was so refreshing, soothing and kick off start to the menu.
We were served fresh Breads all prepared in house so you might guess now it was warm, fresh and delicious with the Olive Oil served.
Here comes the starters and my first try was the Calamari, it was crispy squid rings served with lemon mayonnaise. It was so fresh from inside and crunchy and crispy from outside, These were the best served at Matto.
Here comes the Bruschettone, done with grilled bread on the base with cherry tomatoes, melted caciocavallo cheese, garlic and basil pesto. It was fresh, delicious and so must appetizing.
We were served Artichoke Cake with pecorino cream cheese, O MY GOSH!!! This was amazing, the hit of the show and love the cheesy factor which added so much to the character of the dish. A must try at Matto’s.
Parmagiana, sliced eggplant layered with mozzarella, tomato sauce, basil and Parmesan. O this one was so very delicious and with the eggplant and the cheese mingling just made my lunch even more better.
From the Pizza we were served Diavola, done with mozzarella, tomato, spicy beef salami. It was the delicious I had, so fresh and delicious and the ingredients added were perfect for each other as they bought out so much flavors and deliciousness.
From the Veggie Pizza we were served Ortolana, done with Mozzarella, tomatoes, eggplant, capsicum, zucchini and mushrooms. The veg one tasted more delicious then the Beef one as it was so very delicious, fresh and straight from the oven of Matto.
Then comes the Ravioli Ricotta & Spinach, it was homemade ravioli stuffed with ricotta cheese and spinach, fresh cherry tomato sauce, basil and infused olive oil. It was so very good, the spinach stuffed with the cheese tasted so divine, delicious and I am definitely going back for this.
We were served Melanzane & Burrata, it is done with paccheri, apulian burrata, fried eggplants and cherry tomato sauce. It was perfectly done, tender and soft raviolis with burrata tasted so delicious and divine.
Now here comes my Dessert and Italian dessert O YES!!!
Tiramisu, done with mascarpone, coffee, ladyfinger biscuits and cocoa. This place serves the best Tiramisu in town, so soft and tender, all ingredients mingling all together well.’
Cannoli, sicilian cannoli stuffed with sweet ricotta cheese, pistachios and cheese. The plate looked so delicious, elegant and was really appealing to the eyes.
Matto Rock, shaped in a praline sphere and had a outer layer of hazelnut crust stuffed with chill chocolate. This one was heaven in my mouth, the best that could come out from the kitchen of Matto.
They also have Matto Business Lunch Sharing Menu which included most of the dishes they served me. I am definitely going back to this place as I can say they serve the Best Italian Cuisine in town.
