Carlo is both an excellent Chef and an amiable chap. We discovered the place thanks to a friend from Matera and it is indeed a very good restaurant in the Sassi district. Go for the local assorted antipasti and the various types of pasta. Delicious!

Restaurants in Matera open at 8pm, and we were in front of Baccus already at 7.45 when the owner arrived and took us inside as he was switching the light on. Portions are large, antipasti plate enormous, tagliata among the best I had in ages and dessert to fall for. Really a great evening and a lot of fun with... More

The beef was out of this world, pasta was great. An enjoyable experience in what seemed like a family run restaurant.

Food was pretty good, ambience was pretty basic, one meal came out after everyone was finished... May be better to find a sassi restaurant for a more authentic experience

The best restaurant experience in Puglia. The antipasto is overwhelming, the salted fish incredibly good. Wonderful local wines The chef recommended a local specialty which we really enjoyed. Genial and relaxed. We liked it so much, we returned the next day.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. I still don't understand why! We came here, there was nothing special on the menu, which was in Italian only by the way. They don't have tea, only coffee. After looking for 10 mins at the menu, we decided not to waste one of three nights while staying in Matera and... More

We ate here every night as we liked the food so much. Simple local cooking, not full of tourists but locals. .... and superb deserts!

We came here by the recommendation of the Slow Food guide to Italy, a source we find very reliable. It was a rainy evening and not in season and by happenstance everyone seemed to arrive at the same time overwhelming the place. Service was slow but that was okay because the room as warm and cheery and of course the... More

We went to Baccus on a weeknight in off-season (cool and rainy night), so there were few other customers there. The restaurant, which is quite large, has a number of different rooms, so it felt more like a small restaurant. One can observe the kitchen from the main dining room; but it is not the focus of the room. (That... More
