Welcome to Vault 164, located in the heart of downtown San Mateo. Set in the old Crocker Bank on the corner of 2nd and B, the décor uses many of the building"s antique vault pieces sprinkled throughout the dining room and bar. We feature an eclectic and contemporary American cuisine, using sustainable seafood and organic produce when possible. Stop by and enjoy our bourbon and maple glazed pork chop, served on sweet potato mash, or a savory Caramelized Onion, Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Cambozola Cheese Flatbread. We offer a wide range of aged steaks and whole roasted chicken, fresh pasta, and unique salads. Our bar is great place to meet friends or watch a game, and it features a variety of classic and new cocktails, handmade to perfection, a large selection of beers on tap, and over 20 wines by the glass.

"My wife has MS so going out is a little hard. We celebrated her birthday at La Lanterna and they did their usual terrific job. Hector is very attentive and very friendly, as are the whole group."

At Matteo's Osteria we are the hosts of a authentic Italian experience. A restaurant and wine bar, we invite you to savor our healthy, locally-sourced homemade cucina italiana and explore our 100+ Wines. We have the largest Wine by the glass selection on Maui. Filled with family stories, anecdotes of local specialties, days spent on Italian vineyards with generations of winemakers & many a wine class later, Gianna & Matteo are thrilled to welcome you to Maui’s first Italian Osteria & Wine Bar.

"I love this place however the Satimbocca were a miss, too rich, too big, and served on an appetizer plate. Everything else was outstanding. We will be back and highly recommend this restaurant. Great value and fantastic wine list."
