Italian restaurant Matteo's will open at 3615 Butler St. in Lawrenceville in late January or early February, chef-owner Matt Cavanaugh confirmed.
He has been working on the space that had formerly housed an insurance agency for the past year. "It has been a long haul," he said.
The 50-seat Italian restaurant will feature steak and seafood, as well as a full bar.
Mr. Cavanaugh is an alum of the kitchen at Sarafino's in Crafton, where he worked for a decade.
