Visited with my husband and parents. Great place! There is a nice outside deck with seating if you need to wait. The service was excellent and you can show off your artistic talents on the paper table covering. They supply the crayons! Food was excellent, the server courteous amd the prices reasonable!

Fun casual place, food was very fresh and tasty, and our server Jason T. was very pleasant and helpful. We have visited a lot of restaurants in Sanibel and Matzaluna is one of our favorites! Thanks Jason!

The pizza box was more appealing to all my senses. It would have tasted, look and smelled better the what they tried to pass off as pizza. They should have paid me to eat this pizza and it was a good thing for them it was carry out or I would have returned it to the kitchen and demanded my... More

I was so disappointed with the pizza here. Really, it was so bland - don't waste your time or money on it. I didn't try the other food. The service was pleasant, but I'm not going back.

Our party of 7 all had excellent meals, generous portions, reasonably priced. Tony Bennett, our waiter, could not have been more accommodating (and we were a challenge!) Call ahead worked well. When we arrived a table was ready. We would highly recommend it.

We have driven by this restaurant many times. A family member recommended it so we decided to give it a try. We were quite impressed with the food, service and prices. They do have seafood despite being labeled an Italian restaurant. I had linguine di mare - linguine with seafood in a red sauce. The sauce was exceptional, very fresh,... More

We went to this restaurant for the first time this week and I can tell you we were not disappointed. From the appetizer to the entrée were perfect. Our server was Tony Bennett ( no not the singer ) and he did a fantastic job. He humored us, was very personable and attentive. The attire is casual and the restaurant... More
