Description: The Restaurant Pizzeria The Balcony Matera is surrounded by the stunning landscape of the "Sassi". It is the ideal place to enjoy the excellent cuisine traditional Lucan, godendo al contempo dello scenario dei Sassi di Matera. It owes its name to the wide terrace che si affaccia sul meraviglioso scenario del Sasso Barisano.

The location was superb: very nice view!!
The food was very good especially the "orecchiette al tegamino"!
The place was very busy on Saturday evening and chaotic.
Service very efficient.

The terrace overlooking the old town is a good spot, but sadly the food was average and the lunch time service was more geared to cope with the steady influx of coach parties (of many nationalities) that were all stopping here rather than to us as a couple.

The terrace overlooking the sassi is a pleasant spot. Thin, crispy crust pizza made in a wood burning oven was indeed excellent. On the other hand, the house specialty pasta, oven baked orecchiette with freshly made sausage and mozzarella, was disappointing (the pasta overcooked, the dish just too "heavy") and overall mediocre. The service was not only slow which one could perhaps excuse under certain circumstances, it was just poor: We had to ask repeatedly to eventually get glasses (there were two of us, we eventually managed to get 3 glasses between us, for wine and shared one for water), silverware (we managed with one knife between us), plates, even napkins..!

Great views of the sassi and the food and service are a pleasure. Best to reserve a table if you want the topt views from outside, then sit back and watch dusk fall over the sassi as it lights up - spetacular.

Wine list is good as is the house wine so overall good value and a good place to eat.

After a morning tour of of the Sassi stone houses, we stopped of for a simple pasta lunch, service and food good. Fairly extensive menu in English if required, pasta was only around €6 each. Service charge €2 each. Outside dining area overlooks the Sassi stone houses. Plenty of shade.
