We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at this charming ristorante. The broccoli and mushroom soup was excellent and was followed by a delicious ravioli dish and a great pasta! The atmosphere was very nice and authentic and the staff was pleasant and helpful. We wished we could have gone there a second time during this visit but will most definitely return on our next trip to Matera.

Assorted antipasti is a must (a little bit of everything on their antipasti menu, it just kept coming! Every bite delicious!) Really enjoyed the pasta with chickpeas. Atmosphere and service were average but food was well worth it. Credit card machine was "not working" the night we went, I suspect a legitimate technical problem rather than an attempt to avoid service charges. Would gladly return.

On our first trip to Matera we spent 7 nights. We went twice for dinner to this restaurant. In August one could sit outside, a small pass way from the entrance of the restaurant to the street. We spared one “Selection of Antipasti”, house made pasta, “selection of deserts”. The food is just great. The service started at 08:00 PM. We did like to local wines very much, price vs. quality is outstanding. Be sure to make reservation during the tourist season. We have seen many unhappy faces when they were told that all the tables (there are not that many) are sold out.

Great value for money and really very good food.
Booking in high season is mandatory!
The "antipasti" can be easily shared by two people.
Then just pick one of the traditional pastas.
You'll hardly be able to follow with a dessert....
We shared an "antipasto", we had a pasta, water and wine "della casa" (1/2 liter) and the bill... 34 euro!
Just unbelievable.

We were glad entering the cosy retaurant, with a typical atmosfere. After being 4 days in Matera this was a real revelation! Although being the only guests in the restaurant on a spring-evening, we felt surprised by the enthousiasm and frendlyness of the staff .The food was delicious, from the beginning to the very end. Next time we make a detour only for this restaurant; I may advise to go in the evening , as there is no terrace and spectacular sights. Therefore you have to go to the more touristic taverns, Here all the treasures are kept inside .Buon appetito !
