Matteo’s Pizza & Bistro

  • American, Italian

Essential Information

5132 Arden Way
Carmichael, CA 95608

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. The location, a former Steve’s Pizza, lends itself to a globally inspired but mostly Italian pizza menu (like the signature Matteo, with Italian sausage, pepperoni, chorizo and bacon), but the bistro dishes, like a Niçoise salad with ahi or chicken, are equally delightful. 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.
