Fixed-price lunches go for 10, 15, or 20 euros. We had the lowest-price one, which included bruschetta, a main, wine, coffee, and water. Our pasta mains were healthy and tasty, and the wine and coffee were fine (and the water was water). Basic decor but very good value.

Fabulous find on a cold and rainy night in Matera. Basic decor but Francesco more than made up for that. They offer 5 different fixed price menu's. We had 2 of the anti pasto + pasta dish & 1 of the mixed grilled meat - 45 euros total and lots of really delicious food. Pasta with broccolli, anchovies & breadcrumbs was outstanding. Highly recommended if you value simple, authentic food.

Don't be put off by the stark interior - the honest food and the clear desire to please from the head honcho more than compensate. We ate here twice and each time experienced delicious food and a genuinely warm welcome.

We went to have diner because it was recommended by our host in our B&B. The place is very simple but the food is very good with fix price menus. Appetizers (antipasto) were delicious and service exquisite!

Read reviews here and were close by and popped in for lunch. Francesco welcomed us warmly. We decided on a set price menu of antipasto and a pasta for each of us. Antipasto was superb, we enjoyed each taste and there was plenty of it. Especially nice was the pork and frittata. Then our pastas were also excellent and of good portion size, full of flavour.

Francesco is attentive and friendly. He mentioned moving to Sydney and opening a restaurant, if you do Francesco, we will be the first ones there.

Highly recommended for food, service and value.
