La Lopa is owned and run by Antonella Passione. She couldn't have a more appropriate surname as you will find her passion in every aspect of this nice little restaurant. From the warm personal welcome, to the advice on what to chose from the menu,...More

Hidden, because it is below the street but if you are looking for a small dinner or snack it is a good place to go. You can sit in the small patio or in one of the comfy rooms. Plus, they have a small movie...More

We really enjoyed our time here at La Lopa. Despite the place being busy, the owners welcomed us warmly, showed us around their lovely restaurant and invited us in to have a drink while we waited for our table. We went downstairs in the 'cinema'...More

Like as the “lopa”,local ancient tool for the dredhing of the wells, our “home” in the heart of Sassi would like to be a catalyst of interests. Interest for good food and wines of Lucania. Interest for the beauty of ancient habitat of Sassi. Interest for the best expressions of culture to whom we’ll dedicate meetings, workshops and exhibitions. Interest - last but not least - for the rocks and stones we’re in and that we decided to restore to never cut the roots of the unique and millenary history of Matera. Interests that we want to share with friends, tourist, travellers and anybody still wants to wonder and fall in love.
