We had a great lunch at this restaurant. The menu is interesting and all the ingredients are local and of excellent quality. We especially loved the pasta with porcini mushrooms, caciocavallo cheese and pistachios; it was just great! Perfect service and very nice owner: he knows how to make his guests feel at ease. It definitely lives up to its... More

Recommended by our BnB owner as his favourite in Matera, we were not disappointed. i wondered if some of the other reviewers were talking about the same restaurant. we shared a course of mixed appetisers and there were all sorts of delicious freshly cooked cold and hot treats. I think we also shared the past a course, which meant that... More

Once again recommended by the local people to this restaurant, we arrived late for lunch and it was clear they were having some type of a family function, yet they let us in anyway. I was so pleased that they did. Thank you. Built into the caves like so much of the city, it made for a unique experience. When... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. First impression: Nice modern interior. The menu is typical for the region. Not too much choice but all dishes look very special. I ordered the tagliatelle with mushrooms and my girlfriend ordered the ravioli with fish. To drink we had the basic White wine of the house. The food was exceptional. We... More

I found this restaurant extremely good if you ate trying to taste the excellence that Lucania can offer, here you find all the best of the best, off course for a price. So it may not be the cheapest restaurant in the area, but definitely a must if you want to try the top quality available. The owner and the... More

I absolutely love Matera and I am lucky enough now to know it very well. This restaurant is ideally located in a beautiful setting in the Sassi. It's clean and air-conditioned. The service is mostly efficient, apart from some starter dishes being forgotten and then arriving late, no big deal.The local Aglianico wine is phenomenal (though overpriced - same wine... More

My husband and I enjoyed our meal, but as this was one of our more expensive dinners in Matera, we were expecting more. The anti pasta of the area was our favorite part as we were able to sample traditional foods especially the red chili. The waiter recommended I try the chilli pepper pasta, and I was disappointed that it... More

Great food, small intimate areas outside for only two tables at a time, just how you'd imagine old Italy to be. We were given an amuse bouche whilst we waited for our order to come, most dishes have a deep fried 'pepperone dolce' on it which is the local red pepper. Very good for couples that want an intimate meal.

We have been travelling in Italy for 4 weeks and unfortunately we had our worst meal here and most expensive for what we had. Very disappointing
