Parts of our order were forgotten . Nothing came quickly . Food was uneven . Our capprese salad was big and very good... More

Always fully booked, and for a reason. Trattoria del Caveoso is a place that understands local cuisine. Especially the of the menu dishes were amazing. In May we had tagliatelle tartufo with amazing mushrooms and stuffed involtini from pork from the BBQ in different ways. We can also reccomend the homemade limoncello after diner.

I was dubious about eating lunch here, as I thought that any restaurant in the Matera Sassi was likely to be a tourist rip-off. I could not have been more wrong. The huge antipasto completo for two was a meal it itself, and full of good things - especially some local cheeses in tip-top condition. My companions could eat no... More

The staff here was awesome. They made sure we knew the day's specials and their prices. The food was wonderful. We went back two days later and had an equally good meal!

I was very disappointed with this place after all these incredible reviews! The food was so over sauced, heavily! The portions seemed 'Americanized'. They were huge, sloppily put together and just heavy heavy heavy. The only good thing was the service. We had a wondeful waiter who was lovely. Definitely not a recommendation for the food.

How many restaurants allow dogs in, the evening we were there, three couples bought there dogs and of course there was mayhem for a while. Service, this restaurant seems to have forgotten customer service, not once were we asked if we were satisfied,want another... More

Two nights in Matera and two evenings in this excellent restaurant. Excellent food, comfortable atmosphere, great house wine and excellent service - would definitely recommend booking as getting well known and deservedly so.

We tried this restaurant for lunch after having eaten at Ristorante Soul Kitchen the day before just so we could say we tried more than one place. It was very crowded with a Chinese tour group, but they politely seated us even though we didn't have a reservation. We sat downstairs in a tiny room, which was probably a blessing... More
