We chose this restaurant not only because of the beautiful view of the Sassi, but because it was one of the few which was open during lunch hours. I’m glad we did that, because the food was excellent! It was probably the best orrechiette we...More

We had a lovely lunch here. We went for the Tourist menu which was 3 courses. We were so pleased to found this restaurant. Service was friendly. It has a museum side too which was quite interesting. Definitely recommend!

I believe this place should give to the tourists and local people something more! Everything is essential but not enough to live to the visitor a really good memory. The food is in the average but it could be improved and made unique. The food...More

Great spot that is family owned. Staff was great easily managing several large groups (and us) simultaneously. Food was great and prices very reasonable.

Perched on a hillside, Il Terrazino is dug into a "cave". Very popular, beautiful view from altitude, especially at night. Enjoyed the pizza Norma..with delicious eggplant. The highlight came AFTER the meal when we were invited to visit the "cantina"...lower levels deeper down into the...More

The Restaurant Pizzeria The Balcony Matera is surrounded by the stunning landscape of the "Sassi". It is the ideal place to enjoy the excellent cuisine traditional Lucan, godendo al contempo dello scenario dei Sassi di Matera. It owes its name to the wide terrace che si affaccia sul meraviglioso scenario del Sasso Barisano.
