My partner John and I found this little place tucked away among the Sassi Barisano area of Matera. The main waiter was a rather portly older man and he was an absolute star. So friendly and attentive and there was no rush - very convivial....More

We enjoyed drinks and antipasti here on two late afternoons. The owner is an extremely friendly, warm, generous man. We loved getting to know him. He gave us a tour of the place--a beautiful cave bar, restaurant and B&B.
