Owned by Matt and Yvette Woolston, proprietors of the Supper Club catering company who also operate the Crocker Art Museum’s cafe, Matteo’s serves up sophisticated yet family-friendly fare in a long-neglected corner of Carmichael. As its name suggests, the restaurant boasts both a robust pizza menu—varieties include a chicken-and-artichoke pie and the signature Matteo, with Italian sausage, pepperoni, chorizo and bacon—and bistro lineup, with items like the blackened shrimp and mango salad. For nibbles, try the tender buttermilk-fried calamari or Asiago polenta fries. The low-key setting means everybody from toddlers to high schoolers to grown-ups on a date will feel comfortable here; in nice weather, there’s also a spacious patio with an herb garden.
