The most sophisticated and perfect restaurant in the region. Everything, and I mean everything is done to please the palate, the eye, the nose. And it is simple. What exactly makes it perfect? I'm not sure, but it is. My cioppino was a delight and not overdone - the broth was heavenly. My friends' gnocchi with truffle sauce was also simple and perfect. Everything disappeared. Thank you Fasulos!

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.

We celebrated my son’s birthday and drive through a storm to arrive as their last reservation. The staff was efficient and friendly and the food was really tasty. All in all worth the trip!
