Great place - well worth the effort to find!

Having read positive reviews, we made the effort to find it. And we were really pleased we did. The clue is the place is full of locals. The smoked mozzarella to start was fantastic. The pizzas were very good. Beautiful surroundings. No hesitation in recommending it!

We used the restaurant a number of times as it was convenient to where we were based and sometimes we just got a pizza to take away. It's the luck of the draw here. They do neopolitan pizzas which are very good and range from 6-8 euros. The insalata caprese was a reliably good choice. My husband had a steak... More

This restaurant has incredible ambiance - very cool to be eating in a cave. The service was slow and inattentive, even after adjusting for the fact that in Italy, they do take much more time to eat than we are used to. The caprese salad was mediocre - large wedges of mozzarella and a few cherry tomatoes - the balance... More

I was there with a group of friends, some only had pizza but we tasted quite a few things. Great location if you are in the sassi, or walk down from Matera's main piazza. It's located on the lowest, road level. You can count on a good meal. Chatty in season.

We came here as a party of 10 with our tour group. Some had very good meals, my husband's lamb was good . I had one of the worst pizzas I have ever been served with. It was a calzone. The filling was lovely, but the dough was burned on the outside and completely raw in the middle. Someone else's... More

Interesting restaurant hollowed out of the rock so it has a nice ambience. We tried the pizzas and were underwhelmed, quite OK but nothing to get excited about.

The appetizer platter was huge and fantastic. Pastas also delicious. Nice service, good value. Wine was a little pricey but worth it for the atmosphere and options.

The restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside and we largely chose it just out of convenience because it was near our hotel. The inside is in fact really pretty though and it's a shame this isn't more obvious from the street. We were allowed to take our dog in with us. This is very surprising for me coming... More

I ate here with another 15 people...me and my father were the only Italians. Nothing to said about the food, great pizza etc. If there is something that makes a good place a great place is the staff and the service. My uncle in law wanted to pay for everybody so he stood up and asked the waiter to give... More
