“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2014 NEW

Best meal we had in Matera. Absolutely delicious local food. Quality of the ingredients was suburb. Since it was summer, we ate outside in the patio which was romantic. When in Matera, make sure you try this little gem of a restaurant.

“Just beautiful!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2014

Went there after poor experience at 'Morgan' across the rd (staff were rude). The food was expensive at L'abbondanza Lucana, but the most delicious flavours! A real treat. Absolutely recommend L'abbondanza Lucana to anyone. The service is fabulous, the food is incredible and I felt so comfortable and looked after. I will definitely go back there. Please try it!!!

“Lucanian Food with a Modern Twist”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2014

Beautiful atmosphere with a pleasant and helpful young server made an enjoyable evening. The food is old style served in a modern way. The blend of old and new is artfully achieved.

“We Made a Mistake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014

This place is well known for its antipasti and it has on its menu a selection that can be ordered for the table. We were not hungry enough to do that and that's too bad because they are supposed to be of a Lucanian variety that is not widely known. What we did order, however, was delicious. It is an easy place to recommend.

“Ok but expected better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2014 via mobile

We have grown to know Matera well over the past 3 years. This restaurant is relatively new, as many are in the Sassi as it continues its high quality development.
Overall the experience was adequate, but given the relatively high prices we would have expected better.
The mixed antipasti was good, with a variety of flavours, and encouragingly keeping off the lazy mixture of cheeses and salumi - a good Lucanian start. Albeit, some of the meat based dishes were curious as an antipasto.
To follow I had pasta with a tomato and vegetable sauce. The pasta was fresh and good; the sauce ok; and the portion quite meagre. We often share a pasta, but on this occasion it really would not have been possible.
My wife had rabbit. It was good.
We had two glasses of house aglianico (from Ripcandida - good at €5 per glass), water and coffee. The bill was €61, inc cover at €3 each.
Overall a little more than 10% more expensive than Da Francesca, and really not as good.
