Matteo’s Woodfired Pizza
Quickly earning itself a cult following on the Gold Coast, the line frequently snaking out the door and the full tables at Matteo’s Woodfired Pizza are testament to Matteo Finotto, the culinary genius behind this Italian gem. A cosy hidden gem in Clear Island Waters and one of the best Italian restaurants on the Gold Coast, Matteo’s is dishing up Italian just like Nonna made.
Come for the authentic wood-fired pizza and stay for the freshly made pasta and the pillow-soft focaccia bread. Save room for one of their finger-lickingly good aperitivos and finish strong with the indulgent tiramisu. Drooling yet? The friendly team behind Matteo’s pride themselves on their authenticity, crafting fresh pasta and pizza everyday and following traditional family recipes, so you know everything is handmade with love.
If you weren’t already convinced this is going to be your new neighborhood favourite, owner Matteo Finotto recently received one of the biggest awards in the culinary world: Master of Pizza. Only ten chefs are named Masters of Pizzas globally and we are lucky enough to have him slinging up delicious pizzas for us right here on the Gold Coast. Oh, and did we mention you can chow down on their pizzas every week at Miami Marketta? You're welcome.
