Inspired by the lively, all-day dining haunts of Milan and Rome, Matteo Downtown is dishing an express lunch for busy bees, before segueing into aperitivo hour, dinner and drinks.
It can be a daunting task trying to decide on where to eat in Sydney's CBD. That's where Matteo Downtown comes in. Downtown honours the heritage and energy of the big all-day dining restaurants of Milan, Rome and Florence and channels that into the heart of Sydney CBD.
Centred around family-style sharing and dining, Matteo Downtown allows you to stop and savour the moment. The sprawling venue is made up of three distinct areas; Downtown Bar, The Terrace and The Dining Room.
The design of The Dining Room is a balanced mix of contemporary meets classic cool. Sit back, relax and enjoy the theatre of the open kitchen.
What's on the menu? Woodfired Roman-style pizzas, handmade pastas (including that viral Vodka Pasta), house made bread and classic Italian-style desserts.
Can't stay for dinner? No matter, their Downtown Bar aperitivo offering is the perfect opportunity to gather, unwind and watch the world go by– The bar offers the true essence of aperitivo; designed to whet the appetite! With a selection of spritz, you can expect to sip on lighter, more delicate notes of elderflower and passionfruit, before hitting the Negroni menu, with four different types, work your way through the history and evolution of the Negroni.
