Food was superb. Waiter was charming and made some excellent recommendations. Need to lear to share a main course as so filling. Ordered fresh vegetables and were served a selection of raw vegetables😂

My husband and I ate here one evening during a week long cycle trip around Puglia. The food was outstanding (and large enough portions to feed 2 hungry cyclists). We shared the Antipasto platter for 2 - having 6 local dishes which were all very good. Then a steak dish with a bottle of red wine which they had recommended.... More

I have visited quite a number of restaurants while I was holidaying in Italy. But the food and service in Soul Kitchen were truly great. We had a wonderful time there. They offer nice steaks, awesome panda cotta, and good house wine. Highly recommended!

We were a bit taken aback when my main course was presented with one of the vegetable sides and told we could share as my partners food wasn't ready yet, just a couple of minutes. 15 minutes later still nothing. We complained and the waiter actually argued with us that we had agreed to share and my partners food would... More

Fantastic six appetizer dishes - all fresh and super delicious! Our main course was a local specialty - beef rib, which was also tasty. Reservation is mandatory - the place gets filled up pretty quickly.

Our group was 6. We started off with a complimentary bruschetta of ricotta and truffle, and the flavours were outstanding. We had the orecchiette and the ravioli for dinner. Each plate was amazing. The flavours were simple and very tasty. We chose the house wine which was recommended by our accommodation host and we were all impressed. Local produce is... More

A very well designed restaurant with natural cave architecture in parts of the restaurants....a city of caves. The restaurant has 3 floors and it is always packed. Given the packed house on most nights, the superior quality of the food and the excellent service did not suffer in any way. The pasta with sausage dish was excellent as were the... More

Food was great! We could not believe what we ate and for the cost. The chef was very kind by accepting us without a reservation. Definitely eat here if your in Matera.

I had my go to orechietta in wild chicory greens with anchovies, tomatoes garlic and sun dried red pepperchini. It was not home made paste but the taste was really good. We had a... More
