We were greeted very nicely and sat straight away. Had to ask one of the staff to order. Antipasti came immediately. Water never turned up and was on the bill. Waited so long for the plates to be cleared, we stacked them. Didn't help. They were cleared as our mains arrived. Pizzas had good flavour but my grilled seafood was... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. When we made a reservation earlier in the day, I did not see orecchiete (the regional dish) on the menu. The chef overheard my request and said he would make it for me. When we returned at dinner, the waiter told us it wasn't available. I told him the chef informed me earlier... More

After a minor argument from business colleagues about which little Pizzeria was the nicest in Matera, we 'democratically' voted for this one - it was late in the evening after pounding the lovely ramshackle streets of Matera. Having never been here before I was not disappointed - we ate a seven-course antipasti 'tasting' meal of the chef's own whim with... More

We have a wonderful lunch at Oi Mari, and the pizza was absolutely delicious. The best we had in Matera and perhaps all of Puglia!

Dropped in for an early evening meal. Lively people, excellent choice of dishes. Main restaurant set in a cave in the hill. Well worth a visit

We enjoyed drinks and heavy antipasti here in late afternoon. Very large covered patio, perfect for people watching. The cheese and meat platter was delicious.

We were dashing in to 'do' Matera in an afternoon and needed food and drink close to the centre of the historic town. We were delighted to find Oi Mari. The pizzas were great, the beer in a jug was cold and fresh and the prices were fantastic! I can fully recommend this great restaurant.

Good Neapolitan pizzas. Nice baba. Restaurant is built in a cave, which is quite representative of the city. Surrounding rocks are beautiful but a bit smelly.

Oi Mari was recommended by our hotel and we were in the mood for pizza, which turned out to be excellent. But we can't report on the rest of the menu. The location is right in the sassi. The pizzas (E9) were terrific and the wines inexpensive (E3/5). We would have happily gone back our second night but decided to... More
