I ate there twice during my recent trip to Matera. The food is very reasonably priced and very good quality. The staff were friendly and helpful to none Italian speaking guests.

Stumbled across this restaurant just off the main square.Locals and a few toursts eating.Menu in Italian only so we left the entire meal to the waitress who helped enormously.We didn't even choose the wine but left that to her as well.It wasn't an issue and actually gave us something to look foprward to-it didn't disappoint.

Antipasto terrific! Delicious food! The 'Caponata dello Chef' and fresh ricotta with a balsamic sauce were especially good. The ravioli with eggplant and 'mozzarella affumicata' was delicious! The staff was so kind and friendly, specially Signore Lucio. I would strongly recommend this restaurant.
