The view from this restaurant was beautiful and is the best thing about it. The food was average - nice but nothing to write home about. The staff were lovely but very forgetful and I was left waiting a long time to order.

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.

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...More

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.
