Excellent food, and friendly and professional service. Our waiter, Pino, was helpful and patient as our party of six decided what to order. Not one dish was a disappointment and the wine he recommended was perfect. Do not miss the beef ribs!!

We walked in as soon as it opened without a reservation and got seated, minutes later the place was full. We shared several plates and apps and loved everything!! Would highly recommend!!!

I can thoroughly recommend the beef medallions with porcini mushrooms. A lively atmosphere in a typical cave setting, the food is cooked and served with love

Positive reviews brought us here. But this was, for us, a meh restaurant. Not terrible, but we had much better experiences elsewhere in Matera and other venues in Italy. We had the fava bean soup, potato ravioli, and beef in wine sauce. All so-so dishes....More

We visited here on the strength of reviews not only on Trip Advisor but also in Lonely Planet for the region but were so disappointed. Friendly staff, some very good local wine but that’s where the good review stops. We both ordered a beef dish...More

I booked using the address on Soul Kitchen's website with no problem! It's worth the effort to boo ahead, especially at this time of year. Good luck!
