We spent two weeks in southern Italy, and probably had our two best meals in this restaurant. The menu is inventive, and service attentive, and the ambiance pleasant. They were kind enough to be willing to modify a pasta dish to suit my daughter's less adventurous wishes. I would especially recommend the mixed appetizer platter, which was tastier, larger and...

Fantastic meal! Creative chef- even though we ordered more typical local cuisine, they brought us some of their creations to try on the house!

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel staff. We walked to the restaurant before 8 pm and were seated right away. Service was good, food was very fresh, tasty, and just wonderful. The sampler appetizer is a great way to taste different items. All pastas were delicious. The bean soup was very creamy and delightful for the cold rainy... More

We read raving reviews and were disappointed. Food just OK but service was simply lousy. Maybe they had a bad night but I only have this experience to judge them by.

We were recommended Trattoria del Caveoso by the excellent Hotel Belvedere. From the moment we entered, the charming wife of Padrone, Nicola, created a warm atmosphere and she chatted to us from time to time. The food was delicious. The house liqueur was exceptional. We had the happiest of evenings. It was the highlight of a brilliant visit to Matera.

This restaurant was nearby our hotel Basiliani in Matera. The pasta was the best we ate in our week vacation in Italy. The wine was good but a bit too warm. The atmosphere is nice and service is good. It is inexpensive restaurant; you get a very good food in a normal price.

We had dinner at Caveoso on the last night of our two and a half week tour of Puglia, and it was a great choice. We sat on the patio while the lights of Matera illuminated the sassis surrounding us. The house antipasti was delicious, with a mix of fish, meat and vegetables. We both enjoyed our pasta dishes very... More

I just ate here for lunch, conveniently open during siesta hours. everything on my veggie/cheese anti pasta plate was great; 3 of the 15 things were totally sublime!!!....like, everything around you stops and all you experience is this heaven in your mouth great. that, takes a smart, talented chef/owner....

We, as a couple came upon this restaurant last night. The atmosphere, service, food and vino were all a delight and our food needs were certainly met and beyond our expectation. We sat inside the restaurant which has a lovely atmosphere and vibe about the place. The soup and pasta which I ordered was delightful whilst my husbands Italian starter... More
