At the young age of 21, Nando Silvestri, the owner of Matteo Trattoria & Pizzeria, opened his first restaurant in Los Angeles. Since 1992, the family-friendly chain has continued to grow. Matteo, Nando’s son whom the restaurant is named after, works alongside his father to bring delicious food to their customers. 

The reason is simple. Matteo Trattoria & Pizzeria offers great Italian food at a great value. The restaurant specializes in moderately priced hearty, homespun meals served in a casual, family-friendly atmosphere.
