Passing through Matera and looking for a lunch spot we wandered into Kappador. The clue is in the name La Finestra Sui Sassi, as we were given a table in the window with spectacular views of the sassi. We just had pizza, pasta and gamberone for lunch - all of which were very tasty indeed, and very reasonably priced...all washed down with a Primitivo rosato for €14 a bottle. Waiters were very friendly. Would definitely recommend for typical, decent Italian food at good prices.

We had a wonderful lunch, served by wonderful people on top of a roof with wonderful view from the window to the sassi!

What a marvelous place for lunch! We were up on the terrace overlooking the Sassi, away from the crowds yet amidst it all. We split an excellent salad, then had lemon ravioli with lobster sauce and a fabulous grilled sea bass. The portions were generous, but, hey, we're on vacation.
Service was observant and helpful.

First day in Matera and luckily for us we came here for lunch. The most perfect window table is free and the maitre'd settles me in with water, complimentary bruschetta and menus. Waiting for my husband I order a bottle of local rosé wine on the waiters recommendation.
The view is incredible, clear blue sky, ancient tiled roofs, chimneys, bougainvillea and the Cathedral we've just been to on top of the hill. It's like a film back drop.
My lunch date arrives loves the table and the wine. We both order pasta and a simple green leaf salad.
The restaurant has many levels, including a popular terrace up top and we are impressed at the agility of the two floor staff. Up and down the stairs they go balancing plates of food and bottles of wine. They are both super friendly even though they are so busy.
Our meal arrives and mine is delicious though my husbands is rather bland, the waiter notices he's added pepper from the side board and kindly tells him off before darting away and returning with a marinated pepper mix. It's just what the dish needed. Salad is my favourite iceberg which we dress ourselves with olive oil and balsamic.
As we eat we notice a huge fluffy kestrel chick on the roof below our window. It's mother is cruising above a drops down to feed too fast for me to capture. This entertains us through out the meal.
Not in the mood for dessert we order and receive excellent espresso. Complimentary fresh figs are bought to the table. They are the perfect digestive.
This place is brilliant. We enjoyed everything, views, food, wine and particularly the staff who made us feel very welcome.
