    We had an inventive and delicious meal with a perfect wine pairing. The sommelier was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The service was on spot.

    The food flavors were excellent and married very well with the selected wine.... and we loved the gin cocktail with the risotto!!! Food may not have had the super crazy presentation of some michelin restaurants but the flavors were amazing

    Most of the dishes were rather two stars than one. But a bit less convincing for the desserts, they might need a more competent Patissier. Also some room for improvement with regards to the service. All in all a very well deserved star. Best in Matera!

    This is a really special place. Food is absolutely superb and our waiter was excellent. He was on it and good fun. Would really recommend for a special occasion. And the desert wine could well be the best we have ever had ????

    We had the 8 course menu with wine pairings. We only liked 3 of the courses’ a few times the wine pairings were late. There were bread crumbs on the table which were left until just before dessert and even then some crumbs were left. I wish the restaurant well in the future’ unfortunately it wasn’t for us. The staff were pleasant on the whole’ the standout waiter was pasqale’ he has a great enthusiasm explaining each course’ which tends to make the others seem bland’ we only had him for a couple of courses ‘ so we saw a marked difference in the delivery of the other waiters. Again we wish the restaurant well.

    Refined, elevated dining experience, yet very welcoming. The Chef is a creative genius. I tried the 8 course tasting menu. Every presentation was a like a work of art. Though very creative in concept, still quintessentially Italian in flavors. Staff knowledgeable and attentive. Would highly recommend. Up there with some of my most enjoyable dining experiences.

    Italians are the kings of the simple food. Italians are the kings of matching the unmatchable items with outstanding results. They are the best. Unfortunately some chefs are trying the same approach with the food….. Simply doesn’t work. The results are politely said front strange to mediocre and some times disgusting. At that place I would stop till mediocre… Good wine list with popular labels and fare price. The bread was wonderful. Very fine fossili with lamb ragout . The sea bass was good as well . The desserts was nothing special . Bla bla.

    Well deserved Michelin star restaurant. Tasting menu only for 5, 7, 9 or 12 course. Friendly and helpful staff. Chef greets customers after service. Menu is a modern play on classic dishes. Worth the splurge!

    1.4 stars at least :) Super good food, very welcoming and friendly staff. Even with a star, they kept the atmosphere very easygoing - which we highly appreciated. If we will ever visit Matera again, we will surely come back!

    This Michelin Star restaurant was amazing - it has always been a bucket list item for me to eat at such a fine calibre restaurant. The staff were amazing and the food was superb. The wine pairings were also well balanced and well chosen for each course. We were able to choose from a 5-, 7- and 12- course meal (wine pairing was additional). This was a fabulous experience and we would return in a heartbeat! Grazie mille!!

    The staff was professional and welcoming, the food was great! Besides the courses we have ordered (7 corses), we had some starters as a compliment and a small dessert at the end. The wine was not expensive but so good too! Great experience! Loved the atmosphere of the place as well!

    Possibly the best meal I have ever eaten - and I 've been to quite a few Michelin restaurants over the years. The stripped back setting and lighting enhances the experience, allowing maximum impact on your senses of sight and taste, and if you have 'The Last Kiss' (and I strongly recommend that you do) even sound. The sea bass in white chocolate source was just one of the highlights - tuna tartare with red onion icecream shouldn't be missed either! The food was packed with flavour and delicacy, and even humour. The staff managed the mix of relaxed and formal well, explaining each dish in detail. If you are in Matera you should visit this place - top notch!

    Religious experience for real. Amazing food and fantastic scenery. Absolutely best dessert - ice cream of dried tomatoes. No mistakes. Two Michelin stars would be more fair
