The sudden onset of hunger pains is the leading cause of unfinished novels, canceled duels, and tied soccer matches. Today's Groupon employs delicious Italian cuisine to cut down on unfinished business: for $20, you get $40 worth of fare and drinks at Matteo's Ristorante Italiano in Noblesville. Nestled on Noblesville's historic square, Matteo's Ristorante Italiano serves traditional Italian cuisine and peninsular delicacies from extensive lunch and dinner menus. Sample traditional flavors with antipasti; pasta dishes such as the tagliatella alla tarantella, fettuccine with house-made chicken sausage, garlic, asparagus, and sun-dried tomatoes in white-wine-cream sauce ($14.95); or specialties such as the filletto di bue gorgonzola, an 8 oz. filet mignon baked in a puff pastry and topped with a gorgonzola-cream sauce ($27). Diners seeking an Old World experience can round out the table with a glass of one of Matteo's many Italian wines.
Matteo's Ristorante Italiano
Matteo DiRosa grew up in Sarleno, Italy. In 1999, he moved to Indianapolis, where his two brothers had already started restaurants of their own. To get his foot in the door of the restaurant industry, Matteo worked as a waiter under his brother, Arturo. During that time, he met Emily Herner, who also worked at Arturo's restaurant. Romance between the two bloomed like a freshly planted spaghetti tree, but so did a business partnership—in 2003, Matteo and Emily decided they wanted to forge their own legacy, and Matteo's Ristorante Italiano was born.
With its high ceilings, pumpkin-colored walls, and thick, forest-green columns, Matteo's Ristorante Italiano exudes elegance and charm. Matching music, such as the smooth voice and beatboxing savvy of Dean Martin, trickles from the speakers, and artwork and awards dangle from the walls. Amid the restaurant's inviting ambiance, diners gather around tables piled with authentic Italian dishes, such as pollo amore and linguine puttanesca.
