Matera is a wonderful destination, and the world discovered it. Atrracting so many tourists has also provoqued that some places do not take too much attention to what they sell, as tourist come and go. If you are looking for a genuine and solid experience throughlocal dishes , as grandma would have cooked, then this place is perfect. No thrills,... More

I expected better, the house antipasto was interesting and varied with various in-season products was pleased with this along with the local bread but the meat spiedini with pork beef and lamb served in a cone are really not spiedini and the meat was tough and overlooked. My wife had a veal steak that was pretty good but not anything... More

I was in Matera for business (second time in 1 year) and I deliberately went again dining to Trattoria Lucana for all the dinners. Food is amazing and local. Personnel is just fab.

We heard about the place from other people who had been there and found it more authentic than some of the tourist traps that can also be found in Matera. Indeed, this place is just slight off the main square, and thus immediately a more "real thing", also packed with locals. Reserving a table in advance may be a good... More

This was absolutely a winner in lively Matera. We had the involtini and a seafood pasta - both really delicious. The waiter worked extra hard to select our wine. Make a reservation - it's very popular.

We stopped by this place by coincidence for lunch. The food was delicious, the staff very friendly and fun, especially with our one year old boy. The cook came to greet us and offered us a piece of cake for free from a big group who didn't finish up the entire cake. Very authentic Italian restaurant and atmosphere which is... More
