dsc_4769Matt Woolston, owner/chef of the renowned Supper Club, launched his latest Sacramento area restaurant: Matteo’s Pizza & Bistro in the Arden Park neighborhood of Carmichael. Matteo’s has the same attention to quality and innovative cuisine that has differentiated Supper Club for the past seven years but with a more casual menu and atmosphere. Matt and his wife Yvette have created a friendly, neighborhood gathering place for families and friends to enjoy great food and drinks.

They have designed an innovative menu. Pizza is the featured dish and is offered in both Italian and international varieties – but Matteo’s is not just another pizza place. The appetizers, salads, pastas, grilled entrees and Sunday Brunch are made with seasonal local ingredients and will delight the most discriminating palette. All dishes are available as take-out and Matteo’s will also cater events.

The beautiful hickory wood bar is well-stocked with over one hundred wines by the bottle and twenty-five wines by the glass. Honed over twenty years at David Berkley’s and his own Supper Club, Matt’s expertise in wine is evident in the variety of wines and the presence of many unusual and affordable choices. The beer selection is also outstanding with a dozen beers on tap as well as bottled beers. With a full bar, the bartenders will be delighted to create any cocktail and… the best Bloody Mary in town.

dsc_0034The always warm and welcoming,Yvette Woolston, manages the front of the house. Her goal is to have Matteo’s be the home-away-from-home for her friends and neighbors – an inviting place where the whole family can eat, drink, relax and laugh. Matteo’s is definitely a family affair – Yvette and Matt’s three sons, Yvette’s sisters, sister-in-law, and mother are all helping to create a bistro that folks will want to visit often.

Matteo’s seats over a hundred guests inside and an additional forty on the lovely outdoor patio. There is a private dining room available for events for up to forty guests. The beautiful patio sets the mood for a variety of special events such as wine tastings, private cocktail parties and cooking demonstrations – the edible garden and waterfall adds a little something special to the patio area.
