Had an incredible meal here, which was the best we had in Matera. The location, in a cave, overlooking the cliffs, is stunning. The food and service is excellent, as is the wine. Really recommend for a special meal.

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