With its cheesy slices and hearty bowls of pasta, Matteo's Pizza Parlour has become one of Highett's dinnertime go-to's. But now, the restaurant is turning its attentions to the lunchtime crowd, with a new daytime takeaway window popping up at the Railway Parade venue.

Open 11am to 2pm, Thursday through Sunday, Matteo's Sandwich Shop is slinging an Italian-leaning menu of hefty sambos, salads and calzone. You might find yourself sinking those teeth into a soft ciabatta filled with crisp porchetta, broccolini, chilli and asiago; the panko-crumbed chicken cotoletta on a soft milk bun; or, perhaps, a salt and pepper calamari panini finished with kewpie mayo and iceberg.

Meanwhile, calzone are fried to order, made on Matteo's signature three-day fermented Neapolitan-style dough. There's a vegan-friendly mix of endive, olives, capers, chilli and pinenuts, and another layered with mozzarella, ricotta and casalingo salami. You can grab a lunchtime coffee, to, courtesy of Co-Owner Matt Ward's own roastery, These Days Coffee Roasting.

Under stage four restrictions, only one person per household can leave the house, once a day, to get essentials within five kilometres. So, this pop-up is just for those who live nearby.

Matteo's Sandwich Shop is open from 11am–2pm Thursday–Sunday.
