Oi Mari

Fun restaurant in a cave. Off the main square so some walking involved to find it. The seafood platter with octopus and shrimp was great along with the baccala (cod). The desserts were beautiful.

Sample one of the many superbly executed Napoli style pizza with definitive charred crust. Also noteworthy was the attractive rocket greens salad with thin slices of beef medallion enhanced with shaved mozzarella. Nice menu with all items attractively plated and very reasonably priced. Friendly wait staff will direct you to a table for a pleasant outdoor meal or step into... More

My wife and I love this unassuming restaurant. It's a great place to a fantastic tasting pizza that doesn't cost the earth. We love it so much we decided that we would use it as a welcome party venue for 60 guests to our wedding. They loved the pizza and prosecco that was laid on- and I know many went... More

Appetizers were interesting and good, especially the tuna tartare with Compari, but the rest of the dinners were not good at all the grilled meat platter had sausage, lamb and one other indescribable meat. The only edible part was the sausage. Very disappointed, as the reviews were good and this restaurant recommended. I would not go back.

Great restaurant located in the heart of the Sassi. We ate here both nights we stayed in Matera and we very happy on each occasion. The attention to detail in the furnishings is very good and creates a lovely environment in which to dine. The pizza was definitely one of, if not, the best I have eaten anywhere. Highly recommended!

A cave setting for a restaurant is generally unique but not in Matera where there is a huge selection of cave restaurants. On entering I was surprised how large the cave was. The menu is good and varied and the service was quick, efficient and courteous. The highlight of my lunch however was a young man aged 9 or 10... More

We were looking for a restaurant to have pasta and this probably was not the right place. We should have realised this by the 4 pages of pizza in the menu! The pizzas did look amazing but our pasta was not that great. Also, the turnover was really quick. It was a Saturday night and most people seemed to be... More

But we were surprisingly disappointed by the food. First of all, the atmosphere is great - it is a beautiful room and the people are very friendly. But we had just come from restaurants in Alberobello, Spello, Orvieto, Siena in which every plate of food was delicious. Here we went 0 out of 5 in our choices over 2 nights... More
