We visit Nevada City several times a year and have never stumbled upon Matteo's Public on previous excursions. We must say that we were delightfully surprised and pleased with the service and fare. The steamed clams were amazing, service was great, and servings were generous. We shared the Fun-Guy steak and it was prepared to our liking and and well presented. We did sit in the bar area that does not have an abundance of ambience or privacy since tables are close to each other and there was a nasty little fly that did not circle our table but the patrons next to us. Despite that, we highly recommend and will return.

Had a very nice experience on a warm afternoon. Had a light lunch in the pleasantly shaded outdoor dining area. A three piece musical combo entertained while we enjoyed our meal and a glass of fermented grapes. The fact that we were in the courtyard of the old jail added to the experience. Will be back.

While in Nevada City today we decided to have a late lunch..we ate inside, however there is a nice courtyard..it was too warm for us. Seating inside was pleasant. Everything is clean! Our lunch was delicious!

we were attracted by the atmosphere and the life music, sat outside in the patio and enjoyed it. The service was nice and welcoming, no complaints, and the food very good. We had a salad, a sandwich and a delicious burger. However, when we asked for a slice of bread, it was charged extra, as well as a little bit of additional dressing for the salad which was necessary because the original small portion was not sufficient. This affected the overall good impression since the prices are not exactly cheap, and we did not ask for anything unreasonable or add-ons out of proportion. It would be a nice gesture to the clients to be a bit more generous with small basic things....
