This is a truly special gastronomic experience - soon to be a 1 Michelin star! Absolutely loved the concept and how they use all the local ingredients like the amazing matera bread and coffee dessert! This is a must visit

Located close to the historical centre quite ordinary restaurant seen from outside.
Professional welcome, modern fit out simple furniture. Impressive kitchen with very high quality standard.
Food is the outstanding feature of the restaurant. Very nicely served.
Excellent mixture of tastes that only a high level chef can offer.
I strongly recommend it if you want to taste a high level dishes at affordable prices.
Not to miss the dessert!!
At the end we met the chef to talk about the secrets of his art.

We were in Matera for only 2 nights and scoured TripAdvisor for a good restaurant. Read the favorable reviews and Nicola - the chef- delivered!

The decor is modern and simple but it is the food that sings. I love sea urchin and we had a pasta dish with sea urchin and black boar! Umami! Our main, a pork dish was equally splendid. And the petit fours were such a wonderful surprise. Others mentioned the warm bread and I must admit, I inhaled them. I thoroughly recommend Ego!

We just happened upon Ego while wandering the streets of Matera. The menu intrigued us so we gave it a try. After traveling Malta and Sicily for 12 days, it was by far, the best meal we have consumed. The chef is creative in his combinations, and his presentations are exquisite--photo worthy. An added bonus is the plate of several delicious types of warm bread served with olive oil.

We are only in town two nights and are seriously considering going back to sample more gastronomic delights.
