We enjoyed a lovely meal on the terrace. Service was prompt and the food delicious. We enjoyed the fava beans as a starter and shared a couple of pasta dishes. Delicious. The bread on the table was amazing. Crunchy and perfect to clean the plate.

We ate here for lunch and dinner. The ambience is pleasant, the food very interesting and palatable, and the service is friendly. This is a family-run restaurant in the heart of one of the Sassi of Matera and well worth a visit. They 'dry cleaned'...More
