Beautiful location on a beautiful terrace right above the Sassi di Matera. Beautiful traditional food.We particularly enjoyed cavatelli with pork and mushrooms accompanied by a bottle of primitivo. It was a great summer night in Matera.

There was a choise between some places of Matera with local food in Sassi, we have decided to go here and it was really nice experience starting from incredible view finishing with honest correspondence between dishes and prices and good collection of wines. Although if this place is for tourists (in old city it is difficult to find the restaurant for locals), we had a pleasant experience of eating pasta. The selection of local cheese was really delicious.

I've been there with my friends, None of us were impressed by the food or service. The pasta with tomato sauce was soooo basic, even we cooked better at home. The plating was something similar to school served meals. Don't like to offend anyone, but guys, c'mon, wake up and treat costumers with more inspiration in terms of taste, plating and service. You don't have very different prices from other restaurants, but your level is something to be worked on.
Look at this totally unappealing dish which was brought to my friend while writing the review.

We tried four different well rated restaurants but this place was best by far. Mixed seafood and a local Matera pasta with cacio ricotta cheese were utterly delicious, as were the roasted potatoes. Local prosciutto with melon also a great treat. Ambience is also wonderful (it is in a cave in the Sassi area, but not hard to find).

Situated overlooking the Sassi, the staff made us very welcome even though we were a bit early. The foo is typical of Matera. My wife and I had the swordfish which was first rate.
