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 arugula, beet and goat cheese 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.
