Good local food, inside a cave with very attentive service. Wine was excellent and overall generally well priced with plenty to eat. Some limited choices on the menu the only reason for not giving an excellent rating. Maybe quiet season in October. And if your order chips with your steak they'll serve crisps ( for the English readers) .

This restaurant offers a nice and interesting mix between modern and traditional, both for the interior, with modern furnishing inside a typical grotto of “Sasso Caveoso”, and for the food, a very good interpretation of the traditional recipes of Matera’s cookery. The quality of waiters’ service is also very high. The prices are a little more expensive than the average, nevertheless in my opinion this restaurant is strongly recommendable.

I am sure that most of the people will like this restaurant because it aims to the middle taste. The first course was good. We had a plate of salami and cheese which was a good surprise, but the rest was over tasted; Too salty and too rich in taste... The wine was excellent and reasonable in price. The design of the restaurant is super nice, but if you look for high quality food please do not let the design fool you.
There are many better places in town.

Maybe our expectations were too high from the reviews - great setting, but the starters were ordinary and over priced, the Prosecco was pretty disgusting and the grilled vegetables quite unappetising- although our main meat courses (pork fillet and beef fillet ) plus the mushroom side dish were lovely. The service was very diffident .
