This place is perfect. Steaks are terrific value as is the vino. Very attentive service. Food all fresh and cooked to perfection. The interior is very relaxing with a mixture of rustic/ classy decor.

Pizza in Italy is normally a treat. This was more like a New York Italian pizza in style. Undercooked with too much dough. Service was quick and fairly friendly. Not the Southern treat I was looking forward to.

None of the courtesy or culinary skills of Italy here. Menus thrown into the table with no greeting or grace. Bread dry (stale), no oil offered to coax the flavour into mozzarella starter. Grilled mixed fish had no fish - six prawns and a small octopus. I sat thirty five minutes waiting for a bill while the family set up... More

A family run restaurant in the bottom of the valley amongst the old Sissi dwellings. Roomy with a great service and more importantly very good food at very reasonable prices. You cannot go wrong if you choose here to eat.

We loved EVERYTHING about Oi Mari! It is hands-down our favorite restaurant in all of Italy. We had to return again and again because it was so good -- added bonus is the elegant charm of their restaurant decor.

My family and I had made arrangements (anyone can) to meet Chef Sara, go to the market and pick out fresh food for your meal. Then go back to the Oi Mari and under the expert experience of Chef Mari make your own pasta; crunchy fried sun dried pepper chips; sauces, and everything for your meal later that evening. Chef...

We went here on a rather quiet evening. The pizza is pretty good, but the service was a bit of a let down. Our waiter was kind enough to let us in for an aperitivo before official opening hours,and was pretty attentive to begin with. This declined quickly however, and at the end of the meal we had to wait... More

Friendly staff and delicious food. In fact, we enjoyed it so much that we ate there 2 nights in a row! The pizza is topped with typical pizza ingredients and tastes delicious. Would definitely recommend it..

Our family of 5 dined at Oi Mari our first evening in Matera. We ordered the antipasta misto which blew us away! It was a delicious start to a great evening meal. After the amazing appetizers, we ordered our pastas and meats. Again, everyone loved everything they ordered. The outdoor seating was charming, and the views at night in the... More

Sited near our hotel and as it was recommended on TripAdvisor for pizza we tried it. Had bruschetta starters and a really good 'san gennaro' pizza which was less 7.5 euros. Lively atmosphere as the evening developed. Was a good food, cheap evening and we were able to sit outside. Service was the only disappoint which let it down -... More
