After writing several mediocre reviews lately I thought maybe it was me. Then I found this place. Wow. Excellent meal!! We started with the rabbit with roasted peppers and the codfish bites. Both delicious. The local Matera bread was one of the most delicious breads I have ever eaten, and we ate it soaked in local olive oil. Next course... More

We passed by this restaurant during the day and the aroma was wonderful. We went back that evening and had a terrific meal. There was only one other person in the restaurant. I can't understand that because it was much better than the place we ate in the next night which I see is rated higher on this site.

Nice cave restaurant with really good service. The waiter was extremely helpful with recommendations on food and wine. The menu choices were all very good. Service was fairly quick, food quality was good, and prices weren't too high for dinner.

My husband and I went to Baccanti for lunch and we loved it. Loved the athmosphere and the food was amazing. The owner Sergio was very welcoming and professional. Decor is absolutely the best. Better than the Sant'angelo restaurant and many others. Great value, prices are very fair. Grazie Sergio per un pranzo buonissimo anche se al volo. Torneremo presto... More

We dined at Baccanti on a recommendation from an Australian-based importer of Italian foods. The groovy cave setting was chic instead of clichéd, with good service and refined food. I start with an excellent budino of ricotta topped with a small splodge of rich, oily tomatoes and capsicum. Franz has foie gras, which makes him very happy. My next dish... More

This is a cool space in the "sassi" (cave) area of Matera, a magical town in southern Italy. An oasis on a hot day. the chef does amazing versions of the local, simple cuisine. the portions are generous. the staff is kind and attentive. It was a fabulous evening in a fabulous town.
