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

It's so hard to have an unpleasant restaurant experience in Italy, however, for value and ambience this ranked as one of the very best in our three week journey. If you stick to our maxim in Italy, peasant food, peasant wine and peasant prices, you will very rarely go wrong and make a meal of tomatoes in season, they are... More

Food very good but above all very attentive service. This is mainly thanks to one of the (the most experienced) waiters. Very professional and friendly. We had the anti pasti, the lamb chops and orechiete with tomatoe sauce.

Best meal we had in our three week tour of Italy! The chef came out and gave us free dessert and a type of lemonchello made with tangerines that he made himself. The rose wine was incredible! We stumbled home and had the best sex ever! Highly recommend! Gluten free - no problem, they made us gluten free pasta! Go,... More

I asked Lucia, the wonderful receptionist at our stunning hotel (L’Hotel in Pietra), to recommend a few restaurants that have the best authentic regional menu and that are not popular with tourists. Among the three she recommended was Baccus Ristorante, which is just down the hill from the hotel. We took her suggestion and had two superb meals there. The... More

We ate during tourist hour, before 9pm. They had an English menu. The chef, and boss of everything spoke very little English. Only a few words really. But between my few words of italian and his few English words, we understood each other. The antipasti starter was like a course of never ending little surprises. Everything was different and yummy.... More

Deservedly popular restaurant run by delightful chef husband and front of house wife team. Best antipasti I have ever tasted with good selection of local produce, never the same two evenings running as it depends on what is good and fresh that day. Good choice of dishes, cooked in the glass fronted kitchen which is visible from the main dining... More

What a treat to discover Baccus! We were greeted by the chef himself, who speaks passionately, but only Italian. I swear by the end of the evening I could understand him perfectly. I had the marinated mackerel with red onions (sgobro) which was absolutely delicious, followed by the lasagna - Incredibly fresh and flavourful. Husband had cavatelli (excellent) and the... More

After a strenuous 6-7 hour bike ride on the outskirts of Matera including the bike ride back up the mountain, our family was ready for a delicious dinner. The staff at our hotel recommended this lovely restaurant to us due to its proximity to our rooms. We were not disappointed with any of the food. In fact, every course was... More
