Keep the bread away!!! Just like all Italian restaurants, they start with bread! My suggestion, keep the bread away as there are much better things to have over here!

We started of with the Margherita Pizza. A classic italian pizza. Crust was good and it was typical brick oven pizza. For the mains we tried the ravioli with porcini and truffle and the pasta with burrata and eggplant. Both the dishes very delicious. Both the pastas were cooked al dente. I am personally not a big fan of this style of pasta. It was still decent enough for my liking.

Did not end up having desserts this time but I have had the Matto Rock with which they give the hammer to smash the rock. Interesting concept and a decent tasting dessert.

Ended it with a cappacuino! Perfect end!!

Visited this place with my colleagues for a casual team lunch as we had heard that it is one the finest Italian restaurants in town.
We ordered a Margherita Pizza. It was a classic Italian pizza. We then ordered Ravioli with Porcini and Truffle and Pasta with Burrata and Eggplant. Both the pastas were cooked al dente style which makes them feel uncooked perhaps that’s why I didn’t like them much as it’s not my taste.
Overall, the ambience was good, the food was okay, expected it to be better.

Went here for a work lunch. The experience was ok. I expected much more. Pastas were cooked al dente style which made them feel uncooked and hard which is actually more authentic Italian but perhaps not to my taste. Pizza was Good. Ambiance was nice. The staff are polite but they did forget one of the dishes we ordered. Wouldnt go back unless I heard they've really improved the food.

Matto, located at The Oberoi offers a true Italian experience unlike any other.Where modernity and history collide, Matto presents an exceptional dining experience with a modern take on traditional cooking methods.

I recently visited Matto for lunch and was stunned with the beautiful rustic and lively interiors. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful.

We tried the following dishes from the menu;


*Calamari Fritti – crispy squid rings served with lemon mayonnaise – 4/5

*Polipo-Roasted octopus served with shallot flavored potatoes and olive dressing was super yummy!!
Octopus was perfectly roasted!!



This salad made of marinated crunchy bread, tomatoes, celery, red onion, olives, basil & cheese is a must try at Matto. Being a salad lover, I totally loved this – 5/5

*Verdure & Caciocavallo

It’s a combination of marinated Mediterranean vegetables, mixed leaves, cheese, tomatoes, olives & balsamic vinegar reduction is also a must try - 4/5



*Matta Gourmet – If you love seafood pizza, you should definitely try this - 5/5

Meat & Fish

*Matto Burger- A beef burger prepared in the Italian way with cheese & eggplant served in pizza bread alongside hand-cut fries & rosemary mayonnaise was highly enjoyable.
Patty was super juicy – 5/5

*Gamberi Alla Piastra – Grilled Argentinian prawns marinated with garlic & chili, fennel, olives, tomatoes & parsley oil was one of my top picks at Matto – 5/5

*Cotoletta Alla Milanese - it is a sharing portion of breaded milk fed veal chop, rocket & cherry tomatoes. This dish was ok – 3/5

As Desserts, we tried Matto Rock, which is basically a milk chocolate sphere with hazelnut crust. This dessert is inspired by Ferrero Rocher and was super delicious

Matto is the ultimate place to satisfy your cravings for authentic Italian dishes.
From lunch breaks to dinner dates, whether for business or pleasure, Matto fits the dress for any occasion.
