Cave dwelling

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.

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

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

This place has a great shaded eating area at the front. If you venture inside it is an amazing experience as the inside is in a very large cave area. The food is first class along with the presentation. The portions are large. Very good local regional food and dishes. Service was very italian and acceptable. At this place the... More

A hot day in Matera and this shady terrace in the Sasso Barisano was well worth searching out for a leisurely lunch. A mixed antipasti to share was more than adequate ( six varied dishes ) and the pizzas to follow were more than we could manage - suggest sharing if you have less than gargantuan appetites. Good wine list.... More

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!
