The best

If you are looking for good food in Matera then you should stop and eat here! Carlo and his wife are the best you can find in Matera. Courtesy, food and wine! Definitely must stop and eat at least once for lunch or dinner.

We had lunch here the day we arrived in Matera. It was right around the corner from our hotel (Ai Terrazzini which we loved). All the dishes we ordered here were great. Service was pretty good too.

We ate our New Year's Eve dinner here because they were the only restaurant in Matera that did not have a "set menu." We wanted to have choices and not stuck with what was only offered that night. Upon entering the restaurant, we saw that there was a whole roasted pig sitting on the kitchen counter and knew that was... More

A colleague recommended we try Baccus while in Matera, and I'm glad she did! The food is good (get the lasagna, primo, and chicken, secondo), the staff (husband chef, wife server) were so nice, the wine they recommended was delicious, and the desserts were good too. They gave us a free appetizer as well, and my wife an I got... More

Nice local/traditional food, but the four course meal is just too much! Love the family feel. Located in the lower streets of the old city.

We enjoyed Baccus very much. In a town of touristy restaurants, this one feels more authentic. The lasagna and the roast chicken were to die for.

Staff at L'Hotel in Pietra recommended this place. We arrived quite late and without a booking. Not a problem. A charming waiter seats us at a large table on the outside terrace. We order and quickly receive a bottle of local white wine and mineral water. The wine is delicious, as it should be with a namesake like Baccus. For... More

We stayed at the Hotel Nazionale in September 14 and the receptionist suggested a few local restaurants including Ristorante Baccus which we tried first. We weren't disappointed. Its a 20-25 minute stroll from the hotel and situated on the edge of the Sasso Barisano. We sat outside looking up at the lights of the Sasso. Quite magical. Service was brisk... More

We had a wonderful dinner with excellent wine and I've never had a more professional waiter!!! He was alone and kept everything under control, no waits, no wants!!! Recommend this restaurant to all those who enjoy good food and excellent service! Not to mention the excellent wine of this region!!!

We were recommended to this restaurant by the staff at L'Hotel in Pietra, and we were not disappointed. The only negative comment I have is not directed just at this restaurant, but at all Italian restaurants that I have used generally; they do not serve vegetables as part of the meal. You might be offered boild or grilled vegetables -... More
