Just by accident we've ended up in this restaurant. The quality of the food was excellent. Fresh local ingredients with a great taste are being served to you in a very nice ambiance (interior design and background music). Very kind staff. If you stay in Bernalda, try this restaurant. You will not be disappointed.

We came to this restaurant on the recommendation of the manager of the farm we were staying at for our friends wedding. It did not disappoint just a shame we only found this on our last night in Italy. This place is awesome, full of traditional food and each dish is described and explained and the gentleman that served us... More

We found this place on Tripadvisor during a trip to Metaponto and I'm happy we decided to give it a try. Food was awesome and service was great! Not to mention they explained all the traditional dishes while serving! For a sure a place to visit again!

My emphatic advise to visit this restaurant to undrestand what the typical Italian cuisine is...It's really tasty and authentic. The friendly atmosphere and service are fantastic.

We came across this restaurant on a very hot day in July and were grateful for their air-conditioned comfort, as well as the really lovely welcome we received. The waiter, a family member, took real time and effort to explain the menu, which changes daily, which he reeled off with real enthusiasm and panache! We completely fell in love with... More

My partner and I, spent a week in July 2012 travelling around the towns and countryside of the region. This incredibly welcoming restaurant was undoubtedly a highlight of our trip. Not only were they accommodating to our limited Italian language, they even did their best to also cater to our dietary needs (gluten intolerant), which has been no mean feat... More

We have spent 5 days in the Sassi region (we drove around approximately 350 kms). We had a dinner at "Il Terrazzino" in Matera and it appeared to be a brilliant choice. This was the best food we have had during our journey, it was excellent from the starter to the end! It is a family restaurant, a very pleasant... More

This is probably the most difficult review I ever had to make. We went here one evening in July on our trip trough Basilicata, mostly because of the good rating on tripadvisor. The inside of the restaurant is very clasic Italian, and in the kitchen 4 sisters are cooking, but.... the menu... Nothing they had was mentioned on the menu,... More
