Nice seating outside, but service was poor. We ordered the house wine, usually quite good in the area but it was really poor. Asked for the grilled beef blue, or very rare and it came well done, and tasted of lamb- they'd obviously cooked it on the same grill as the lamb cutlets without wiping it down, which made it really inedible for one of us who hates lamb. They seemed to be doing their best, but it just wasn't good enough. Considered it over priced. Having said this, the location is charming, and maybe they were just overwhelmed by a table for ten. Unprofessional. Menu much of a muchness.

We found this place by chance, and lucky they had one table left on their terrace looking over the Sasso Barisano. The waitress was friendly and down to earth, and did a great job. We went back for lunch two days later - the owner let us sit there 30 minutes before he opened. Plus - the food was great!

Cantina della Bruna is located in the heart of Materas Sassi Barisano very close to Piazza del Sedile. We arrived very early at 7:30pm and only the owner was there at this time. He welcomed us very friendly and gave us tips what to eat. Finally we choose the "taglioline della bruna" followed by "cutturidd". For the taglioline look at the website of the restaurant, there is a video about it.. Cutturidd is lamb with potatoes and vegetables made in a terracotta pot.
Both dishes were simply excellent! We had red house wine which was also great.
And on top prices are very reasonable, especially when compared with the normal level of italian restaurants.
