This Michelin starred restaurant in Matera, Southern Italy was highly recommended to us as the perfect place for my birthday lunch. It certainly looks impressive; a beautifully converted cave, with the soft creamy shapes of the sandstone walls echoed perfectly by the glass partitions at...More

Before visiting this restaurant I read some conflicting reviews. A French diner saying this beat anything France had to offer and a New Yorker saying it wasn't really Michelin fare, along with a variety of others. As regular consumers of Michelin starred food, we started...More

LOST IN THE SAUCE Should not have a Michelin star. Way too many ingredients and all the food smothered in cream a butter, so you can’t even decider the freshness of the actual food that you’re eating. It’s a perfect example of a chef going...More

This restaurant has been awarded a Michelin star but that did not show in what we had. Our group had a set menu of 7 courses with only 2 different wines throughout the evening. The "amuses" were fine with some creative green spongy one. Next...More

Great experience. Only a few tables in a cave-like fine dining setting. Very friendly service. We got the 9-course option (you can do 5,7,9, or 12). That left us more than full - 7 may have sufficed. Every dish was no-kidding excellent, from the "black...More
