We stopped in for a bite to eat at lunch. We sampled the bruschetta with ham & cheese as well the cavatellini with shrimp & zucchini pesto. Both were quite delicious. Service was prompt & friendly.

Not far from the top of the Sassi of Matera. Nice to sit out the front. Service was slow as we were part of a large tour group so I went and got drinks myself from the bar. Good wifi.
