Have also dined at Matto & Cittanova and have enjoyed my meals at both. I would not say that one is far better than the other. If you want a nice glass of wine, salad and some pasta either one would be fine and they both have outdoor seating.
I wouldn't say that Matto is Fantasico- It's ok- Let's not get crazy here. Matto has a prefixe menu on it's website and when I asked about it on a recent visit the waitress knew nothing about it. Then why is the prefixe menu on the website?
