“Nice welcome to Matera”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

Following a three flight journey from the USA and hotel check in, we were beat and ready for a " to walk " place that reflected the area. We found it. We enjoyed the distinct décor of uplit diffuse color lighting, a conversation piece. We ordered a pizza, which was fine, but the local bottle of wine was a " welcome to the Sassi area" hit....gone to fast.

“Best Caprese Pannini in the World!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2010

My husband and I went to Matera (the Sassi) two years ago and had a caprese pannini at Cafe Keiv. It was so good - we went back every day we were there. We traveled again to Matera a couple of weeks ago with friends and told them about the "best caprese in the entire world". "How good can a sandwich be?" they wondered. Well.... we all went back every day we were there and even got them to go for the train ride home. They are that good! And.. I love this place. Very cool vibe and extremely nice staff. They have a patio that opens up to the main square which is great for people watching. In the fall, the pannini had green tomatoes and in the spring - red. No matter the color of tomato they are the best thing ever. Have them with a nice glass of white wine and relax.
