Sassi Di Matera Accomodation and Ristorante.

We stayed in one of their rooms carved out of the rock as was our bathroom. We were very comfortable and so enjoyed staying in a genuine Sassi habitation. The ristorante was next to our room where we ate well and were well looked after. Very friendly.

Went here in the blazing heat with a view to check it out for possible dinner this eve or day after and tried to buy a bottle of water for 1 euro. Only had a 20 euro note and the man didn't have change and didn't even offer me a glass of water when he could see I was a... More

Our main reason for choosing this restaurant was to cool down from 40C temperature. So glad we did and our only disappoint was that we wanted a light lunch. The food selection caused confusion as we picked from anti pasta, pasta and mains instead of going through each coarse but all prepared and presented as we wanted. Definitely would come... More

Had a super lunch here on a very hot afternoon visiting Matera. We weren't quite sure when we first arrived as the menu was a little limited but our doubts were cast aside by the great, fresh pasta dishes the chef produced. We'd recommend the melanzane parmigiana and the fresh pasta with pomodoro, rucola and cheese. Give it a try,... More

Excellent food, very sophisticated menu and very nice atmosphere. If someone wants to experience the Italian cuisine in Matera, then this is the place!

This restaurant may fool you because is part of the hotel but... I found it one of the best in Matera! The Chef is an artist, you can see him work from your seat and you can tell he knows his business. The waiter is most gentle. For breakfast you will enjoy an array of sweets made by the chef...

Southern Italian gastronomy is distinctive for its different flavors, frequently mixing together vegetables, spices, meat and past to build a completely new taste. Taste is exactly what this restaurant lacks. It's really nice, hosted into a "sasso", an old house digged into the soft rock. Nice furniture, nice lights, good atmosphere. But the food is much more like an hospital... More
