We dined here on our first evening, and despite the place being very busy, we were cordially greeted, quickly seated and given the menus and the traditional basket of Materan bread. The menu is quite extensive and is supplemented by specials of the day. We...More

Eat in a cave. Great food, great service, and fun. They offer a good menu of options, and everything was done perfectly.

Recommendation of pasta stuffed with ham was a must for me. The atmosphere in the cave was busy yet cosy on a very cold and wintery March night. Reasonable price and very good wine. Well worth a visit when you are in Matera.

Great Matera cuisine in a beautiful cave. Unique to the area the food was authentic. We went as a family of 5 and all enjoyed our meals.

Excellent food and good wine. We had some delicious pasta with pistachio and white wine. The interior is very nice, authentic, in a cave and the prices are moderate. The service is great.

Nothing special, and waitstaff not very nice. My steak wasn’t cooked as requested and I felt like no one was really concerned with whether I was happy.

+39 0835 312374 Is their number, I believe. So yes, do book ahead. It would be a shame me to miss out on a great meal.
