The meal is presented like a gift

One thing stands out in my mind as a summary of the experience. As part of the antipasti di casa, there was a dish of warm, medium sized tomatoes. Maybe San Marzano, with the top cut off. Baked perhaps. Breadcrumbs and olio and some unimaginably delicious combination of herbs and cheeses and... read more

this is a cheap but excellent local restaurant serving good honest and tasty food for an amazing price. The wine is also exceptional for the money, we had the Moscato and enjoyed every drop. It was very quiet when we were eating with only two other tables occupied, so the atmosphere was a little subdued but dont let this put... More

This really was one of the most enjoyable (i.e. delicious), varied, visually attractive, meals we have had in our many years of world travel! And the setting was splendid, unpretentious and friendly, in one of the old winding streets of the Sassi, in Matera (designated European Cultural Capital 2019).

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.
