Great food. Good service. Perfect ambiance - a cave in the Sassi. One of the few restaurants open late for lunch.

Nice food and service in a very pleasant atmosphere in a cave. And when in Matera, why not eat in a cave? The atmosphere was complimented very well by the high end food. Highly recommended.

When we arrived, the cave was a bit cold and the waiter a bit "touristic". But we really enjoyed the meal. We had a delicious cod dish. The interior of the cave is very atmospheric.

The food and service are excellent, and the location is superb. Had the local cheeses and meats for appetizer (outstanding), and then great pastas for first course.
