Pizza as it should be

Excellent pizza and beer. Nothing extraordinary, just good food prepared by people who know what they're doing.

We visited this restaurant 3 times whilst in Matera, once for lunch and then twice for dinner, because lunch was that good! For the lunchtime visit, we had the best pizza we've had - base light, crisp and just the way it's supposed to be, and really fresh toppings of parma ham, rocket and parmesan. For dinner we had cod... More

We had lunch, and a fantastic evening meal here - and both experiences matched recommendations made. We had a local DOC red (Dragone, 40 euros) which was heavenly. The proprietor look real pride in asking our thoughts, always a good sign. The deserts are a must, and the speed of service with the pizzas almost too quick - but guess... More

This place was so good, we came five times in two days. You will not get the steak of your life here (they have steak), so stay with pizza. They make amazing pizzas and they have really good wines (at really good prices!). On the last evening we ordered an Amarone from 2005. Since they did not have any more... More

There is an extensive terrace outside Oi Marì but the inside is a vast Matera cave with atmosphere. Overall a great dining experience with good house wine though the pizza was a bit like a fondue on a Yorkshire pudding. Attentive service. Good place to relax after a hard day visiting churches and sassi.

Wandering through the amazing town of Matera, we stopped here for lunch and were very happy we did. Service from the smiling waiter was first-class (even though he had little knowledge of English). The pizzas were perfect. The salads were delicious. And the wine was a great value, as always in this region. I recommend it highly, even the bathrooms!

We each had a pizza. I had the vegetarian with courgette and aubergine, which was good, although the veg was a little burned. Overall the pizzas were very good though, especially the dough. Matera is quite touristy, and this is a place to get an authentic pizza for a reasonable price. Recommended!

We pretty much walked in here at random as the first place we saw, looking for lunch. A nice shaded terrace in the middle of the old town with a literally cavernous interior. A large selection of pizzas to choose from. Pizzas were well cooked and generously topped, and a nice mixed salad complemented them. Service good, prices reasonable and... More
