Nice atmosphere in restaurant mostly located inside caves and carefully designed in a way typical for Italy. Offer meals characteristic for Basilicata region. Unique and Not expensive.

We took the award winning artist, Laurie Smith, here for lunch in July. It was a great lunch. the restaurant was empty when we arrived but filled up slowly over the couple of hours we were there. The food was great and the wines excellent. The service exemplary from the single waiter. It was our first time in Matera, actually... More

We really enjoyed Baccanti, eating dinner in a cave when its hot outside, and not worrying about the mosquitos! It was quiet when we arrived, but soon got busier, we both enjoyed the food, and my starter was a real winner, its high quality restaurant food and service so if you want quality good wine, great service, great air con,...

Beautiful setting within Matera's impressive caves. The food was very good and used local recipes. We only felt that the service was a bit too rushed, as the restaurant was expecting a large table and we had the impression they wanted to have us finish our meal before the big group arrived. On a normal evening it is probably an... More

We had a place to ourselves and it was strange as it was definitely the best restaurant we've been to in Matera. Highly recommended.

Nice entrance and great atmosphere with caves inside. Food quality good but not something to remember. The cherry on top was an espresso for €7 (SEVEN euros). Overall, good, but not something to come back to or recommend.

We dined at Baccanti on a weekend. We had a 4-course meal, a bottle of wine, and dessert wine with dessert. The food is heavily influenced from local food traditions -- pork, cheeses, breads -- all of which is prepared fresh, presented beautifully, and tastes superb. Our waiter kindly recommended local wines, which nicely complemented our meal. Overall excellent value... More

I took my wife out for a birthday dinner on our second night in Matera. The restaurant was recommended by our hotel staff and we were NOT disappointed. The ambiance from dining in a centuries old sassi really added to the experience. The service was outstanding and prompt throughout the meal and although we made our best attempts to speak... More

Interesting menu and amazing quality. In particular the veal ragout pasta dish was amazing, and the turbot main was perfectly cooked. The local wine - especially recommended - was also delicious.
